Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Palermo Centro
A haven from the noise!
We stayed here for one night at the end of October. The hotel is in a good central location, yet on a side street. Via Roma and other main roads nearby are VERY noisy so a quieter street was welcome.
Very modern hotel, foyer with small bar, style is clean lines and minimalist furniture.The room was modern, spacious, had nice tiled bathroom, TV - everything you would expect from this class of hotel. Only negative point was that the room did smell of smoke despite it being a non-smoking room.
Staff were helpful and the breakfast was ample.
I got a reduced rate booking with Accor hotels on line - paid 80 Euros instead of the 200 Euros listed at reception.
Excellent hotel, wonderful welcome, top facilities, great bed and bath, good location, good concierge, breakfast very dissappointing - processed juice, poor chocolate, hard fruit, cheap jam and ordinary bread.
Italian hotels tend to be somewhat on the erratic side in my experience, particularly at this price range, but the Mercure was lovely. A new building, great breakfast (after a week of being served bread and marmalade in other parts of Sicily), big properly soundproofed rooms, large terrace attached to our room, nice bed linen, comfortable beds, spacious contemporary bathrooms (though my shower door leaked), helpful staff who could advise us on where to shop, eat, etc, temperature-controlled rooms, great location, internet access. I was particulary surprised at the price. I paid Euro 111 per night per room, and therefore expected it to be a little ropey. Not so.
Yep it looks drab from the outside but.... we stayed for 3 nights in this modern, excellent, centrally located hotel. just off one of the main streets in the centre of town, this hotel is a must for those people craving modernity with great service. Just round a couple of corners from late night street cafes and bars. If you want a fantastic hotel for a few nights go for it. Oh and the buffet breakfast is worth getting up for.
Clean and Quiet
We stayed two nights at Mercure Palermo Centro Hotel. The hotel looks unispiring from outside, but inside was an oasis of peace and relaxation. The hotel looked recently renovated, with the lobby and the rooms very clean and modern looking. The elevators and hallways were small and older than the rest of the hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious with a large bathroom. The breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of fresh fruits, cakes and different types of bread. Cappucinno and expresso were available free on request. The reception staff was young and very helpful despite their limited knowledge of english.
True 4* hotel - interior fantastic even if exterior is a little disappointing. Very modern and chic - large rooms as well as bathrooms and balconies. Great breakfast. Out of peak hours staff do not speak English but not a problem as such. Location very close to the main high street in Palermo.
We only stayed one night at this hotel during our one week holiday in Sicily but it was by far the best. Take advantage of Hotels offer of £55 per room per night, whereas if you booked directly or through some other sites, you could easily pay more than double this price for a standard double room.
Enjoy Palermo! Visit Santandrea restaurant as it is supposed to be simply the best in town and we have enjoyed our meal tremendously there - fresh Sicilian produce yet with an innovative twist. We also left our £400 camera there and thought that we will never see it again when we realised the next morning, but they picked it up and returned to us 4 days later when we were passing through Palermo once again. Amazing!
An absolute gem
My friend and I stayed here in a twin room. The hotel is a spotless, friendly oasis in Palermo and is well located. The breakfast was possibly the best I've had in Europe. Our room was quiet and we found the modern, designer decor very refreshing in such a loved, but dusty, city! It also has a secure, carpark underneath which was very helpful for us. Couldn't rate it highly enough.
Liked it very much
Liked this hotel very much. Very nice area (2 blocks from via roma) and were able to park our rental car across the street from the hotel.
Room was large and the bathroom very large (shower doors instead of a flimsy curtain). Breakfast served in a bright and airy room.
The staff are all young, good looking people and are very helpful with
giving directions, recommendations etc.
They have a happy hour which was packed (we did not attend, just passed through going to our room) each day.
Would recommend highly to anyone visiting the noisy but very much loved city of Palermo.
Booked the room thru Octopustravel Rate lower then rate given by Mercure Hotels directly.
We stayed in the Mercure Centro in April 2005, and were very impressed.
The hotel is very modern and completely new.It feels more Manhattan the Palermo. The room and the bathroom were very clean and tastefully decorated. The buffet breakfast was great and served in a nice bright room. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the heart of Palermo next to theatro Massimo and Via Roma. And off course very good deal, we paid only Eruro 80 per night breakfast included. I defenetly will go back.

... affluent neighbourhood containing many grand villas and then arrived at the beach. This beautiful beach was very crowded, many people sunning themselves on the sand. One can hire a beach hut or a deck chair with shade but most seemed to opt for full sun. We had a great ice cream, pistachio and variagato for me and caramel and nougat for Gerry. Back to the bus and a 20 min drive to the ship. Formal night tonight, the ship doesn't seem as crowded on this last ...
... the front comes in, so a quick run around the old town was in order. Pleasantly surprised once we were pacing out as some very interesting old buildings and very lush gardens. We even managed to get a special shot of a local beauty specially for Steve Dacosta!! Apologies if it offends anybody else but could not miss the opportunity. Alison and Scott stay on board and plan their next adventure - off to Venice for a few days ...
... We had a wonderful dinner. We ate at the hotel on the rooftop. It was a little cool, but the view was amazing. We had such a pretty sunset, with many different clouds and birds all around. Service was also impeccable. We started our meal off with a prosecco for me, and Eldon had a glass of white wine. He then had the four-piece appetizer, and I had the caprese salad. We just can't get over how fresh things are ...
