To Donatella and her amazing staff, Gracie for making everything perfect for our week long stay. We highly recommend this B & B which is near all sites but far enough from the traffic to provide a quiet environ after day long touring. Especially appreciated the parking garage and facility security.

We had a great stay at Al Giardino Del Alloro. Great location, in between Palermo’s historic center and La Kalsa, close to the seafront and many attractions (don’t miss the Iglesia de San Cataldo and the puppet theater shows). The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean and the owner (Donatella) and staff (Murali and Myrian) are very kind and helpful.... More

We spent 14 days here in late April and found it an ideal place to stay: comfortable, clean, well appointed, good service, quiet, located in the old city close to museums, interesting churches and palaces, and in easy walking distance from the airport bus, the railway station and the sea front. Donatella was most helpful and speaks good English.

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.
