first of all, i would tell you that we drove around the hotel 3 times, because we thought that it was not a safe place at all for a hotel. BUT, as we met with Alessandro, everything cleared up :) we can call Palermo as the city of beautiful architecture, but old. The streets at the city center seem very... More

A great and rememberable experience in the middle of Palermo with its gesticulating residents around, who you can study from close from the balcony. The two owners made us feel like VIPs giving us small gifts, making great breakfasts, giving us cool advises...Highly recommendable!

Cannot speak enough or highly enough about Alessandro, Massimo and Alessandro. They are the most charming three people I have met under one roof. Massimo's hospitality and warmth, despite language barriers made me fall in love with Palermo. Location is fantastic. Walking distance from just about everywhere, Norman Palace, Palatine Chapel, Palermo Cathedral. We did have to wait a bit... More

Two couples stayed in Palermo for 2 nights at the start of our Sicilian holiday. The B and B is in a great central location and Alessandro very kindly sent easy instructions for us to find it from the airport/train. Both rooms were lovely and decorated to a very high standard. Breakfasts were lovely, excellent coffee of course and various... More

I stayed with a friend in this quirky little B and B for two nights towards the end of September this year. The selling point, as far as I am concerned, was the friendliness and helpfulness of the two Alessandros who were in charge. My friend and I arrived in a hired car and, as it's tricky to access the... More

So, we turn up at this 'B & B'. The street is tiny, the entrance almost hidden, but wow what a find. The 2 men in charge were soooo helpful, so attentive and certainly wanted nothing more than to make sure our stay was fabulous. The decor was amazing, you have to go just to see. Breakfast was ok, nothing... More

Not easy to find - but owner Alessandro will give you great instructions, and then come and meet you - but a wonderful (small) boutique hotel/B&B. In an old building that has been beautifully down up ... showing how you can mix ancient, traditional, modern and even a bit funky (e.g., there was an old Lambretta scooter on top of... More

We arrived after spending time at Taormina and Cefalu and wanted a place that was central, good value and a little different and this b&b was all that and more. Even before we had left Cefalu we had a phone call to check what time we'd arrive and how to get there. We were 2 friends so wanted a room... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this welcoming bijou haven. Great proximity to the Orleans Metro stop, Cappella Palatina and the bus stop to Monreale. The room was spacious and well-equipped. I had expected some traffic noise at night, but I didn't notice much at all and slept well. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly, and also helpful with... More
