Absolutely fantastic place - amazing building with loads of history and quirky decoration, good location and out of this world service. Alessandro did everything he possibly could for us- put on a massive delicious breakfast, booked us the best meal of our trip and gave loads of good tips. We even hugged him goodbye! Cannot recommend highly enough (and I'm... More

Just wow! After a long week of partying and travelling around the Sicilian Islands our large group arrived in Palermo, hot, broken and walking through the bustling streets in search of Porta Di Castro. We arrived to the most welcoming of welcomes from Alessandro and his team. We were immediately stripped of our heavy bags and ushered to a seat... More

It is basically a boutique accommodation two steps away from the main attractions Palermo has to offer. Everything is walking distance. Rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, great breakfast, working wifi and very friendly staff. Private parking is available on site and I guess it is a must for most visitors. We are very happy and w'll definitely get back... More

We stayed at the Porta di Castro for one night. We arrived mid day by car using our GPS to get there. A bit hard to find, but this was partly due to the police redirecting the traffic this day. Anyway, we had to park a couple of blocks away. Arriving at the hotel, Alessandro (host) kindly helped us to... More

I stayed here with 8 friends and we were so well looked after. The rooms were beautiful, each with its own quirky style and luxuries. The staff were fantastic hosts, we were immediately made to feel welcome and at home. The recommendations we were given regarding places to see and restaurants were spot on and we had the best food... More

This is such a fantastic B & B on every level. Excellent staff, who go over and above the call of duty. Beautifully furnished rooms and in such a central location. All this and a delicious breakfast. I would highly recommend a stay here - you wont be disappointed. We would definitely pay another visit if we are ever in... More

This place was such a nice surprise! We loved the location, room and most of all the hospitality. The owners go out of their way to make their customers happy. We also had a delicious breakfast served to us each day. It was a great way to start the day. Try out this place, you will be very pleased!

This is far more than a B&B, beautiful rooms with dining area and kitchen, four poster beds, a/c, free wifi, lovely furnishings with paintings on the walls .. High ceilings .. Winderful attentive staff - called me 4 times from GVA to Palermo to help me get here safe and sound! Absoluely great value.

I was really in two minds about giving Porta di Castro 4 or 5 stars. I really wish there was a 4.5, because that's what I'd give it. It really was a pretty excellent, albeit short, all-round experience, with only a minor niggle or so. The hotel itself is a grand old building with lovely decor, which the owners have... More

Alessandro helped us a lot in the beginning to find a perfect parking place, which is not that easy in the small and crowded streets of charming Palermo. The room was very nicely decorated and we had a lot of space. It was clean and had a charming view thanks to a balcony. Everyone was helpful and supportive with a... More
