This was a lovely place for our 5 day stay in Palermo. Easy to find, nice breakfast, great location. You may need a cell phone to contact the owner as there is not front desk. Once called, they were very quick to get us in.

WiFi connection has no problem. very strong and stable.... More

This was not a bad place to stay, but didn't quite live up to the photos, description, and reviews. The bathroom was lovely, the bed comfortable, and breakfast delicious (but bring your own fruit). I liked the little street where it was located (don't count on your iPhone to get you there), but our welcome to the b&b was perfunctory,... More

We've just spent a happy seven days at the Federico Secondo. Our room was airy, spacious and light, with french windows to a small balcony overlooking a quiet but sociable car-free little street. The location is superb if you're into both the antiquities (cathedral is four minutes walk) and Palermo life (Capo market is four minutes one way, while Ballaro... More

We would like to extend our gratitude to Viincenzo for looking after us during our brief stay in Palermo. We arrived in an exhausted state, and were treated with sympathy, courtesy, and kindness The second floor room was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with good aircon, wonderfully relaxing memory foam mattress and pillows, which gave us much needed rest....

The property itself is well mantained, clean, in an excellent location. Parking is available at a few steps away. I booked for one night only. This said I haven't been impressed with the following: - two days before my arrival, the owner emailed me saying that I must check in either before 12 or after 4pm because on Sunday the... More

We spent two nights in this charming B&B and was really satisfied. Room alone was simple but with the story of the old times that can be only in so old building. Especially the bathroom was really nice and light. Federico is located in the center of Palermo and only few steps from the Palermo Cathedral and market, really good... More

Great modern room with a nice bathroom. Absolutely loved this B&B. In two minutes you're in front of the Cathedral and few minutes to the other direction and you're in the middle of a great market (spices, meat, tons of fresh fruits, ...). Only bad thing was the bed - super hard mattress! Felt like sleeping on a floor. Remember... More

My boyfriend booked this and I was a little dubious due to the cheap price however I was very impressed!! Our room was big and spacious with a small balcony. There is a lift. The rooms were very clean and a lovely en suite. The staff didn't speak great English however this didn't cause any difficulties. The breakfast was lovely... More
