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

This recently refurbished enterprise provided an excellent two night stay. Our room was nicely decorated and the bathroom clean and tidy. You might find street noise a problem if you stayed in our room, ask for a courtyard if this will be a problem for you.

Great and beautiful place to stay in the historical centre of Palermo, near the station, the port and the main streets and sights! Francesca was extremely helpful in recommending some of the sights and places to eat, as well as in providing for a very early breakfast on the day we left.

We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are located round a courtyard, it was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful. It is a little difficult to find as it is tucked away on a very small street. We enjoyed our stay here.
