We stayed here for 3 nights at the start and end of our honeymoon and we loved it. The hostess Nicoletta is simply charming and the Australian girls who help her are fantastic too. Very welcoming, provided loads of info about the area to make the most our of our short stay there. We also did the cooking course which... More

I never write reviews but I loved this place so much I thought I would give it a go. I was suppose to stay for four nights and I extended my stay to six. I rented an apartment on the street side of Butera. The area is quite at night and place is bursting with atmosphere. First of all I... More

This was an interesting experience. You are renting an apartment, not a hotel room and this is not a B and B. My apartment consisted of one bedroom, a kitchen, and quite lovely bathroom. While a bit on the "older furniture" side, there was nothing that distracted from the charm of the whole place. I initially saw this offering via... More

The place is just ok. Has the basics and nice to be able to wash your clothes. It has a lot of potential. The location is good. The furniture, especially the beds, could use a major upgrade to be worth what we paid. It sleeps four, 2 on each bed, but we were only two people, so not much cost... More

My husband and I stayed in June for 3 nights, as our last stop in 15 days of Sicily. The views from our very comfortable and spacious apartment were fabulous, and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships and ferries come and go. Despite the weather being very hot, the apartment was comfortable - we used the... More

We loved our short stay here - after staying in hotels during most of our trip it was so nice to have the space - the living room and bedroom are both very large, the kitchen is well equipped, and there are balconies all over. The duchess Nicoletta and Jenny were both incredibly nice and helpful giving us a map... More

We had a lovely week's stay at Butera 28. The apartment is in the old part of Palermo, full of atmosphere, and close to all the major sights, the railway station and busses to the superb Monreale. A car is definitely not needed, nor advised. We had apartment 11, which is very large and airy. It has a huge bedroom,... More

We just returned yesterday from two days in Via Butera (2 adults, 2 children). When our son saw the apartment, he said this was "the best hotel in Sicily". We had only been to 4 other places (all of them very nice), but his comment captured the sense of wonder in seeing the light, big, colourfully tiled apartment we were... More

We were excited to book an apartment in the home of a "real Duke and Duchess" and in the former home of Tomasi Di Lampedusa... and it did not disappoint! The location is fantastic, within easy walk of a number of great trattorias and restaurants as well as patisseries and cultural sights. We stayed in apt 17 (2 adults and... More
