We enjoyed our stay so much in 2013 that we had to return and stay again with our great host and friend Francesco. As in 2013 Francesco was a most gracious host and the accommodation was excellent as we expected . We are looking forward. to returning again in 2015 .

We have just spent a week in the care of Francesco Morra, Proprietor of Attic 12. In many years of travelling, Francesco stands out as a warm, welcoming and thoughtful host. Never intrusive, but seemingly always available to help with suggestions for dining, shopping, sightseeing - including directions to a superb high-quality ice-cream parlour, some 5 minutes walk away.

Attic 12 lived up to our high expectations during our recent 2 night stay. Francesco is the perfect host, helping us with our luggage and parking and treating us to icy Lemoncello. The location is perfect for exploring Palermo and is an easy bus ride or lovely walk to the old city. We enjoyed the local restaurants and bars. The... More

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
