As others have written, Conte Federico is a gem. Best value for money we have experienced anywhere on Italy. The tour, given by Nicolo was the best cultural experience we had in Palermo. It's more then just a room but an experience not to be missed.

We absolutely LOVED our Palazzo Conte Federico experience. For starters, Nicolò, the proprietor, was so incredibly kind and accommodating. Our flight into Palermo was badly delayed and he waiting up for our 1 AM arrival, and was even good humored about it. Our apartment was quite comfortable and nicely furnished. A lovely array of items (fresh fruit, rolls and toast,... More

Nicolo arranged for transportation from the airport to PCF which seemed minor when we booked it, but was soooo helpful after 18 hours of travel. This was the first place that we stayed on our honeymoon and we find ourselves talking about it a lot. Nicolo could not have been more accomodating, even dropping off cannoli while we were out...

We stayed in one of the apartments, which is a fraction of the price of the big room, and totally great. It is quiet, which is saying something in Palermo, very beautiful (sort of ridiculously so), and had a great shower and bed. I saw complaints about the breakfast, but i'm not sure what more you'd need. It's not "fresh",... More

Dear guests, thank you for reviewing Palazzo Conte Federico. It is a pleasure to hear that you had a lovely sojourn. As to your unlucky arrival I’m sorry that your flight wasn’t easy and that you had to wait for more then 4 hours at the departure of your plane to Palermo. It was not me to be upset but... More

If you have only one stop to make in all of Sicily, make it the Palazzo Conte Federico. Not only is Nicolo a warm and engaging host, but the palace is a living testament to the beauty and grace of many bygones eras. The rooms we had were connected by a private corridor, each room having a bathroom with all... More

Sicily is so much about its history that it is only fitting to stay in a place both rich in its personal history and still inhabited by the original family. Other reviewers have reported accurately about the comfortable lodgings in former servants' quarters. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The location is ideal for exploring Palermo and... More

Could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. Nicolo was super accommodating and greeted us to am amazing tour of his family palace. The palace is truly spectacular, filled with history and culture. One of the tower walls is on of the oldest standing walls in Palermo, pretty amazing. The location of the palace is great, we walked... More

Chose the Palazzo as our first stop on a journey through Sicily. Stayed 3 nights at the Palazzo and really enjoyed the accommodations and location for discovering Palermo. We had three couples in our group and we each had a unique apartment as a room. Unlike other B&B's we stayed, they do not cook breakfast but supply your room with... More

In the middle of the historic district, great location. Our host Niccolo Federico was a weath of suggestions and information. The apartments really are in a remodeled part of the palazzo with large sitting areas. There is a kitchen in each apartment stocked with meats, cheeses, juice and milk. A large espresso maker with coffee along with microwave and toaster... More

A most gracious couple, the Count and Countess, provide a superior experience in their palace in Palermo. The Count is a front-ranked race driver and has many dozens of trophies on view to prove it. Not to be missed!
