We loved our stay in this fantastic small B&B. Booking was easy through Airb'n'b and we used the airport bus to get into this part of town. Our room was elegant and airy, the bathroom was modern and spotless, and the location was just perfect for exploring the fascinating city of Palermo. Our room was very quiet and cool -... More

A rating of 3 is labelled "average" here and although I consider L'Olivella much better than average, it did not quite earn the label of "very good" which accompanies four stars. Good points: + beautifully decorated breakfast / sitting room + very clean + very good breakfast, + very central location Not so good points: - very loud environment, late... More

Found this place through Addiopizzo (the anti-mafia association) and I'm very glad we did! The entire place is bright and airy, decorated in soft colours, and our rooms had their own private balconies. Elena is lovely and gave us lots of useful information and restaurant recommendations. Top-notch breakfast, oh and a nice central location too. Perfection has never been such... More

B&B l'Olivella is highly recommended. The b&b welcomes its guests in a beautiful house in the beating heart of Palermo. The house is in a typically Italian palace with very high ceilings some of them with authentic frescos and big windows which flood the space with natural light. The house is furnished with taste respecting its historical identity and a... More

This surely is one of the best B&B's on the island of Sicily. Everything about it is quality. Its ideally positioned to enjoy walks to all parts of this historic city of Palermo. Elana is welcoming and attentive to the needs of her clients. The room we had was large, plainly decorated but very clean, with a small balcony looking... More

This b&b is impressive, you are in the city center, and Elena (the owner) is always kind and ready to help you. The breakfast is really nice with a lot of different choices. Our room was very big and very clean. In my opinion the best choice in Palermo! Amazing!!!

I love Palermo and I love this B&B, so much so I've stayed here twice! It's in a great part of the city, walking distance to everything. Parking is available in the square next door if you need it. We had the triple room both times and love its spaciousness, modern bathroom, fridge, aircon and balcony over the square. It's... More

Three friends stayed two nights here in March. What a treat! The B&B is wonderfully centrally located in the Centro Storico of Palermo. Our rooms were lovely, each decorated in an individual style, comfortable, clean and welcoming. The common areas are equally inviting. The breakfasts were delicious, different on both days with homebaked treats we had to ask the recipes... More

B & B L'Olivella is a gem. The apartment itself is incredibly beautiful - all high, frescoed ceilings and flagstone tiles. The rooms are spacious, airy and elegantly decorated. And it’s perfectly located, right in the centre of Palermo, just round the corner from the imposing Teatro Massimo and the fabulously buzzing Porta Carini market. Our time there was blissful....
