Palazzo Maria is perfectly located for a stay in Cefalu. It is literally right next to the Duomo steps in the main square! We spent three nightst here in June 2014 and have been really surprised when reading some of the other reviews. There was some noise but only what we expected due to the location and it certainly didn't... More

Location in the main square cannot be beat though may not be for everyone. We did our due diligence and opted for a room not overlooking the square and we were satisfied. The rooms had Italian charm and were a design mix match, typical B&B and clean enough. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Rooftop was quiet spectacular though sparse with... More

Having read previous poor reviews,I would not have chosen to stay here. However, we needed somewhere close to palermo for our last night, but not in Palermo as we had spent two nights there at the start of our holiday. As there was nothing else available we booked one nights accommodation. One arrival staff were v pleasant telling us we... More

Stayed for a week end of June. Joanna Apartment. Air-conditioner Unit leaked from day 2 and we advised the office but it was still leaking when we left. The sink in the bathroom needed attention as the water took forever to go down the drain - a simple job I would imagine. They were advised of this too but this... More

My husband and I stayed at Palazzo Maria for two nights. We had a very large apartment with two terraces overlooking The Duomo - the perfect location for our time in Cefalu. The apartment had an open, spacious kitchenette/dining area, walkway into a large bedroom and a even larger bathroom - very reasonably priced. We arrived by car and parked... More

We were traveling around Sicily 7 days in the end of May. Almost every day we were in different town and different hotel. And I have to say that staying in Palazzo Maria was the most pleasant experience. We loved the location, as it's in the centre of the town...room was perfect, with a big kitchen and living room...we have... More

My wife and I stayed a week here enjoying the brilliant apartment - this is authentic "old Italy" - mile high ceilings, two balconies overlooking the Duomo and square and loads of space. The whole atmosphere is laid back with the owners Angelo and Stephano delightful chaps. You must understand though that it is in the style of apartments (rather... More

Palazzo Maria is a small hotel located in Palazzo Maria--a medieval structure in Piazza Duomo, the heat of Cefalu. The rooms are ample and clean. We rented the Re Ruggero which has a kitchenette, ample living room, bedroom and spacious bathroom. Its two terraces overlook the piazza and face the Duomo. The staff (Antonio) was very helpful recommending places to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't fault the location. Great view of the Duomo from the balcony and very easy access to restaurants and the sea. Service was excellent. Only downside was our first night workmen were setting up for a concert(building a stage etc.) and the second night the concert was on. We had great seats for... More

We were lucky to get an upgrade to an apartment with a balcony overlooking the duomo and the square it was idilic. Great for wandering round the old town, or joining the crowds on their evening stroll. No parking in the old town, and no advice via the booking. We walked to the apartments and were advised to park on... More
