No airs, you can feel right at home! This was my first time staying overnight in Palermo and it was really fine. 10 minute walk from the train station, typical old building, a warm welcome with fresh fruit and a drink, large spacious rooms and a hot shower.

This nice B&B is right in the heart of the old center of Palermo, so ideally situated for all your sight seeing and in the middle of street markets and near chic restaurants. Full up choice. The B&B is cozy and Marjolein makes you feel straight away at home and advises you on where to go and what to do.... More

Space: bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and rather large roof terrace Price is rather low (55€/night in high season) Host is multi languaged - Appartment was a little dirty, hairs from previous guests on the ground, doubts whether the bed...

This is the second time we stayed at ArtePalermo. It's location is close to all that's great about Palermo's historical centre, the food markets, the historical pallazzi, the shopping. The stairs were a task but not a problem. Marjolein is a very helpful hostess, sitting us down with a complementary city map and asking us what we were interested in.... More

The B&B is situated on the 4th floor of an old building. Don' t expect an elegant entrance, or an elevator; you are now in the heart of Palermo. The rooms are basic but clean. The beds are OK and you can enjoy the home made art of host Marjolein. Upon arrival she tells you all about the way of... More

we stayed 4 days in Arte Palermo and climbed the stairs without problem. Our host Marjolein speaks 7 languages and was able to tell us all we needed to know about Palermo and the places to be. (even wher to buy a shirt from FC Palermo.) We like authentic places and in Arte Palermo that is what you get. A... More

Positives: friendly host (dutch lady) and her dog, spacious room and relatively clean, very arty, good value Negatives - up 7 flights of stairs, breakfast was basic, not in a very nice part of Palermo (seemed scary out at night)

We felt so at home. Marjolein Wortmann was generous with information about Palermo which gave us a beautiful entry into Sicily. We had a wonderful 3 days exploring the City with her excellent suggestions in hand. Our room was large, sunny, colorful, & full of Ms. Wortmann's terrific paintings. Our room was quiet & private. And the furnishings very comfortable.... More

Me and two friends stayed first 2 nights in June at Artepalermo in Palermo and since we enjoyed our stay there, we had 1 more night there before our return home. Artepalermo is centrally located in Palermo making it possible to walk all over the old town. The B&B is close to interesting markets in the Old town , to... More

We contacted ArtePalermo to book a double room at the B&B, but when owner Marjolein Wortmann suggested that we rent her centrally located holiday apartment for the same price, we jumped at the chance - and have no regrets. The bedroom, kitchen and dining room/entry hall were all airy, spacious and clean. The double bed we slept in was firm... More
