Great place to stay in Palermo with amazing views. Francesca helped us with everything including a trip to the local police to report damage tour hire car. Short bus ride into centre but with lots of good local restaurants in the neighbourhood. Very happy to recommend......

We stayed at Attic 12 for 5 nights recently. It's located slightly out of the centre of Palermo, but only a short walk and bus trip away. The apartment itself is a comfortable one bedder with a sizeable bathroom. There is an outdoor area available with brilliant views of the city. Additionally the entire roof is available for guests use... More

We spent 5 nights at this location, and the host was amazing, he could not do enough, and as my wife a very handy green fingered person, she had a ball helping Francesco to get the 12th Floor garden in shape. This apartment has everything, and the service is "beyond belief" as you have a host who goes the "extra... More

The apartment is very comfortable, but what sets Attic 12 apart is Francisco. Francisco is very warm, friendly and helpful. We liked the residential area where the apartment is located. It is outside of the tourist center, but is easy to access via good and frequent bus service. There are several local and reasonably priced restaurants nearby. Breakfast in the... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Adviser I was worried that the apartment could not live up to expectations, however I am delighted to report that both the apartment and Francisco's service is second to none and well worthy of the 5 star reviews. Palermo is a fabulous, bustling and vibrant city with a varied and complex history - there... More

Unfortunately we were only able to stay with Attic 12 for one night, however we prefer the country to the city so for us this was fine. Please do not hesitate about booking this place.

Had such a wonderful time! It was like staying with an old friend!! Francesco is the best host ever !!!!cant wait for our next visit. Cant say enough. He helped plan our visit, went out of the way to make breakfast perfect to "strawberries in Jan" and the best "doughnuts / ciambella"( i think i got it right).
