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.

Once a wreck- study the photos, they are amazing- this is now a delightful B & B, very well placed for all the sights of the old city. The rooms are arranged round a pleasant flower-filled courtyard and are well appointed and decorated with modern art- ours had a cheerful nude sunbather, so bronzed as to make any medic wince!...

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
