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....

We stayed two nights in this excellent b&b in the heart of palermo. I think we could not have made a better choice. The location of this b&b is great, in a very nice area of palermo. The host Elena is very nice and helpful. She prepares an excellent breakfast every morning (different types of fresh cake and fruits) and... More

The room we stayed was large and had a high ceiling.  The host, Elena, was sweet and the breakfast she made was perfect.  I feel like going back home during... More
