    Al Giardino dell'Alloro is a wonderful B and B tucked away in a quiet corner of the medieval part of Palermo. The rooms are very well appointed, and the owner was incredibly helpful with suggestions of where to eat and where to stay the next night. The breakfast was pretty basic, but in every other way this was a great... More

    I stayed here for 2 weeks in late September-early October 2014. I always slept through breakfast, just because that's a luxury I don't have back in the States, so I cannot comment on the breakfast. But I had a wonderful time here. My single room was right outside the breakfast nook on the first floor, looking out onto the beautiful... More

    We recently spent three nights at this B & B and were glad we did. Following the directions on the B & B's website, we found it an easy 15 minute walk from the train station. It was easy to find. Palermo can be an unnerving city, noisy and crowded but this B & B is located in the older... More

    Room clean and air-conditioning good but wi-fi unreliable (had to re- log-in every day and often didn't work). Breakfast very poor - bread/pasties dry, coffee awful, fruit under-ripe (peach looked like a green apple!). Also dreadful muddle over booking (nearly got charged for 3rd room we had cancelled 6 weeks before our visit). Advice: book and make changes if needed... More

    We had a very enjoyable stay at ‘Al giardino dell’alloro’. The location in the heart of the old town in Palermo is within walking distance to many interesting places. The rooms are very quiet, and the furniture and decoration are chosen with excellent taste. The owners are very friendly, and we felt they are ready to go the extra mile... More

    Nothing could have been better here. Cats sleeping in the courtyard. Great staff. Lovely rooms. Fun location. They even had beer in the vending machine which was nice to hang out in the courtyard and rest for a while.

    I enjoyed my stay in this B and B where all the rooms are built around a small central courtyard. A clean, tidy room - very helpful owners - excellently positioned for seeing the city, but in a quiet area.

    Great location, lovely room, good service, clean, and a beautiful cat (Tommy)! I'd thoroughly recommend as a base to see the old town. Not easy to find though - even for local cab driver. Good local restaurants - the inoteca on the same street was brilliant.

    We had a room off the garden courtyard, modern bathroom, comfortable bed and quiet. Hosts were helpful and enjoyable. Breakfast included every form of coffee for the asking, and tea, hot chocolate, juice, croissants, yogurt, and other breads. Perfect location. We were very happy there. Loved the art.

    This seems to be a newly renovated apartment. We stayed two nights, two weeks apart. We stayed in the iris room. Mr SIngh looked after us very well. On our first stay, our passports were kept by the reception till departure. This is somewhat worrying. Breakfast needs to be improved, as many in trip advisor are saying. WiFi is free... More

    Official Description (provided by the hotel)
    Situated in the historical centre of the city, inside the quarter of the Kalsa, just opposite Villa dell’Alloro, our bed&breakfast is different from the others. We have called it "b&b&arts": in the rooms and the communal spaces you will find paintings, photographs and sculptures of contemporary Sicilian artists. You will find not only well-furnished rooms, where every colour tones in with the idea the room expresses, but also wide communal spaces and a luminous courtyard where breakfast is served in summer and where you can spend your time chatting and relaxing. All rooms are equipped with bathroom with shower inside the room, hot-cold air-conditioning, electronic key that allows access to the whole structure, safe, LED TV, wi-fi free and many other amenities. The rooms are serviced by private elevator, and overlook a quiet courtyard, where you can spend your free time. ... more   less
