Our experience at Ai Cartari was very positive. The room was so spacious and clean with lots of hot water and a comfortable bed. The private entrance is convenient. Rosi Loria was welcoming, helpful and gracious. The Italian breakfast was plentiful and fresh. The location is very central with two great restaurants just around the corner. We highly recommend the... More

Though my husband has already left his review on this B&B, I feel that he was overly generous in assigning a three rating. I believe if you pay for two nights in a location yet feel compelled to check out the next morning and pay to stay anywhere else, this rates as a terrible location. This is just what we... More

Ai Catari is a wonderfull place to stay- very spacious and beautful antique rooms with magnificent furniture and more antiquities. Even without knowing other B&B'sI think this must be the most beautiful in Palermo....Also very well taken care of by Rosi Loria, for the breakfast but also her help to solve parking problems...

We stayed here in May and feel in love with Palermo and the beautiful appartment in Ai Carteri and hence repeated the visit in October. Breakfast was delightful with home made cakes. The place is very central. I have recommended this to family who intend to visit next year.

We stayed at Ai Cartari for an overnight stop in Palermo during our tour of Sicily. After some slight confusion about how to get into the b&b (we had to wait for some time after ringing the buzzer) we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room/suite which is filled with character and has been tastefully decorated. Also it... More

I have to start by talking about Rosi, an exceptional helpful host. We stayed at Ai Carteri for 4 nights in September, I was a bit sick...I took her advice on medication and felt better, a lovely woman. The bedroom is a small apartment, very spacious and clean, eventhough it is in the heart of Palermo you do not hear... More

Ai Cartari offers an authentic Sicilian experience and it's location (in the heart of the historic centre) can't be beaten. The breakfast was beautiful, with plenty of coffee, jams, bread and homemade cakes. Of course, for us, Rosi was the real joy, who couldn't do enough to help us and happily chatted to us during our mornings.

Our stay at Al Catari was the perfect end to our holiday in Sicily. Great location for exploring Palermo on foot and plenty of good restaurants nearby. Behind the understated entrance (which can be a little hard to locate initially) lies a wonderful Main Hall, beautifully furnished with art and antiques. The Bedrooms were simply but tastefully furnished with antique... More

We have stayed twice at Ai Cartari, in September 2012 and again in September 2013, and we love it. The building is a medieval paper factory, converted to a modern dwelling that preserves much of its original character. The rooms are huge and spectacular, tastefully furnished in a style sympathetic to the antiquity of the place. Rosi is friendly and... More

Our family of 6 booked two nights at Ai Cartari, based on the reviews here. Sadly, our experience didn't measure up. When we arrived we were greeted, not by the owner, but by her assistant that spoke no English. My wife and I were staying on one side, our family on the other. She showed us to our room first...
