Good location across from the ferry port, on a pretty street that becomes a cafe street a block up. Most things are walking distance, including the train station, but easier to get the bus that goes between the port and the train station if you are doing a day trip to Cefalu. Lift to the first floor, and a charming... More

We stayed one night at Afea, and the hosts are very warm. They gave us a very clear direction as to how to get to the hotel from Palermo airport, so we had no problem getting there. Our guest room is big and clean. Breakfast is great! We left our bags with them the second day and returned in the... More

Economic stay while you are in transit, just for one night, makes it a surprise gift when you find yourself in this tidiest place and are treated with really good manners and taste. The position is very comfortable, close to the port, historic centre and the main arteries of the city. Breakfast was good and nicely served.

This B&B was very welcoming. Centrally located and close to the port, restaurants, shops and transport. Our room was spacious, clean and well serviced daily. Bathroom was well maintained. Staff were very helpful with sightseeing activities also with transport. Breakfast was adequate and typical of an italian B&B. I would highly recommend staying here.

Afea is in an excellent location close to restaurants and great shopping while being close to the local community. We stayed in a lovely large room with double and single beds and leather couches to divide the room into the feel of a studio apartment. The buffet breakfast was very nice and the breakfast room was decorated with old photos... More

We had booked an upgrade room which was absolutely massive! Surely this must have been an apartment once upon a time: lovely tiled floor, high ceilings, a great double bed, and a fabulous bathroom. This B&B reminds you why the Italians are known for their style. Clean, well organised. The wardrobe felt a bit cheap, Ikea-style, nothing wrong with it,... More

The B & B has probably been recently restored, and this can be seen from the furnishings, cared in design and very beautiful. The light and bright environment is enlivened by very lively paintings. Breakfast good, quite varied, with sweets and salty options. Clean room, renewed nice bathroom with tub. Great location. The owner was very courteous and helpful. The... More

Having spent two weeks in peaceful rural Sicily, our last afternoon in Palermo was a rude awakening. Happily, the Afea Bed & Breakfast saved the day! Our plan was to check into our hotel, return the rental car, and take a bus to the airport the next morning, avoiding the hassle of morning traffic. It was a good decision. We... More
