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

This was our second visit to Attic 12 and our now friend and exceptional host Francesco. This cozy B&B with the best view of Palermo and Pellegrino mountain is a very special treat. Your host is friendly, caring, knowledgeable and pays special attention to the details that make your stay a truly great experience. The traditional Sicilian breakfast, served every... 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

We stayed three nights at Attic 12, and had a wonderful time in Palermo! I believe Attic 12 is the best address to stay. So romantic! Beautiful private patio, nice bathroom, good bed, lovely breakfast and above all a super reception of Francesco. He is very helpful and gives good tips but also respects your privacy. Great great great! The... More

I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Palermo. It is just a 5 minute bus ride away from the city centre, so perfect for going off and exploring the old part of the city, the cathedral, etc. The B&B is actually your own beautiful private studio apartment with a breakfast terrace and roof terrace with a...

If you go to Palermo, you HAVE to stay at Attic 12! Firstly, the place itself: a self-contained apartment, complete with its own huge roof terrace. This makes it a very different, and somehow much more authentic, experience from staying in an impersonal hotel, for example. Although the b and b is not particularly central, the historic city centre is... More

We LOVED our 5 star stay at Attic 12 in Palermo. This was an amazing stay at this bed and breakfast. Francesco was very helpful bringing our terrace breakfast at 8:00am with a view that is fantastic. We will return to only stay at the Attic 12 because it is the very best. We have traveled the world and this... More

We had four nights in Attic 12. Francesco was amazing, very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The location wasn't central but access to landmarks was very easy by bus or about a 30 minute walk. We caught a train to Agrigento and also Cefalu which was fabulous and easy from Centrale station. Breakfast arranged by Francesco was very... More
