First of all, there was no signs anywhere so we wasted about 30 minutes just to find this place, and after we found it, my husband had to phone the hotel because the door was locked. He told him that we were downstairs, asked if he could open the door for us but the guy's response was,"I'll text you", then... More

We stayed in the Sultan's suite and it was kitchy fun! We dressed up in arabic costumes (made by the Sultan himself) and took funny pictures, enjoyed the XXL jacuzzi tub and it was great migling with the other guests at the kooky breakfast table. The b& is smack in the middle of a market street, like being in a... More

Most of the places I've stayed in Italy have had a certain charm and Gran Sultanato is no exception, the location is convenient if traveling by foot as there is no place available to park really. The rooms were immaculately decorated and the entire place holds a certain charm, but there were a few drawbacks. While we had a decent... More

I'm really in two minds about this place. In the plus column: the people are very nice, helpful, welcoming, and friendly. The rooms are quirky, completely unique, and a million miles away from the bog-standard, soulless chains you find everywhere you go. Our room had records on the wall, an old fridge in one corner, and a round bed. Things... More

At Abali we stayed for 5 days (4 nights). B&B is situated in the middle of the Arabian quarter, here in the street you find a colorful market. While you can see easily the street name and number of the house there was no indication of the B&B on the Bell and no indication on the floor. Good that the... More

My sister and i stayed at the Abali Gran Sultanato when we stopped in Palermo. The staff could not have been nicer! They were so helpful with finding our way around Palermo. They even let my sister borrow their personal hair dryer. It was clear that the staff did everything to make their guests feel welcome and at home. Our... More

We had a lovely time at this B&B, it's perfectly situated for exploring Palermo and you're in easy walking distance of the train station, bus station and all the main sights including the catacombs. We stayed in the Sultan Suite for one night because it looked so unique, wish we could have stayed there the whole time but it was... More
