Our four night stay in Palermo at this exceptional B&B was unforgettable! This one-unit facility is truly in a class by itself. When you add the warm hospitality of the owner (Francesco) who was so kind and helpful to us, and consider the excellent value offered, there is no need to look further: THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY...

We had such a nice, relaxing stay at Attic 12. I wanted a room with a view, and this might have the best views in Palermo. It's outside the old city, but not a bad walk and a super easy bus ride. It's also nice to be in a place where real Palermitanos live. It's not touristy so you get... More

We stayed here from September 4, 2014 through September 15, 2014 for a total of 11 wonderful nights. Francesco was an outstanding host during that time with many recommendations on places to go, things to do and restaurants to eat at. He even drove us to the beach at Mondello three times while we were there. We also spent the... More

This was our second visit to Attic 12 and the wonderful city of Palermo. We had high expectations for our visit and we were not disappointed. The residence itself is well situated (within walking distance of 15 minutes and by bus its five to ten minutes) just outside of the historic center which means it is quieter. The attention to...

I cannot begin to express the gratitude we had to Francesco for not only arranging our meeting with both sides of my family, but translating for us and driving us and searching relatives armed only with a few names and an old address. The breakfast was always fantastic, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, croissants, capuccino , and omelette for... More

We has a lovely time staying here. This is essentially a penthouse apartment with an exclusive use of the roof top terrace. Francisco, our host was most kind and helpful. It was my husbands's birthday and he even got him a lovely bottle of wine. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. We appreciated the fresh croissants and Cannoli! Delicious! The location... More

Attic 12 is a great base for visiting Palermo. It is not in the centre, but located in a pleasant, affluent, suburb of the city. It is very easy to get into the centre though, as there are regular and easy to navigate bus services, and as elsewhere in Italy the public transport system is very good. There are plenty... More

Where should we begin? This place has the absolute best combination of everything a smart and worldly traveler could ever want. The owner and host Francesco, is the best B&B host we have ever experienced. He is passionate about what Palermo and his B&B have to offer. The location is in the city, but outside the old historic center so... More
