We booked based on the reviews of Chez Seb and we were not disappointed. Sebastian is enthusiastic and eager be of assistance. Our room was nice, well decorated and clean. The location is across the street from a big mall and a block from a supermarket. Therefore everything needed is easily accessible. The Subway is located 2 blocks away -... More

Seb's hospitality cannot be overrated. He was a great help for us during the entire stay, arranging and advising on everything we would mention. The B&B itself is well located and the rooms meet the standard of a 3-star hotel.

Staying at Chez Seb was a truly great experience. Not only was my en-suite room clean, and spacious (and with air conditioning that actually worked!), but Seb was an absolutely fabulous host. Travelling solo, it made a big difference having such a kind and generous host, who made me feel more like I was staying at his home rather than... More

I really can't rave enough about Chez Seb. From the moment we arrived, Sebastian (the manager of the hotel) could not be more helpful, friendly and accommodating. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable: with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. The large breakfast area was a great place to talk to other guests and Sebastian. Although not a fan... More

The accommodations at Chez Seb are spacious and well appointed, with air conditioning, detached bathrooms and tastefully furnished. At first we were concerned that is so far from all the other tourist areas, but the metro and buses are only a block away and you can see everything in minutes. True it is a working man's neighborhood, and a little... More

Funky place in central neighbourhood, right behind Abasto shopping mall in a restored historic building; spacious rooms with high ceilings and modern bathrooms. Good location, a few blocks walking distance from the center. Several restaurants close by; we especially liked the italian place. Seb is a great host, very knowledgeable about the city and will give you all the information... More

Beautiful hotel with lovely rooms, good breakfast and nice staff. In quite a good location and about 30min walk from Palermo. Near a huge shopping centre and supermarket. Not on the safest of roads though - lots of cars being broken in to and glass on the street. As long as you are careful, the hotel is worth it!

We stayed at SOCO hotel for five days and really enjoyed it, mainly because the staff were so wonderful. Nothing was a problem for them and they helped in so many ways, such as organising taxis to the airport, making dinner reservations, doing laundry and arranging breakfast early before our departure. The room we had was a great size, and... More

If you want to be in the middle of everything, this is not the place. It is, however, close enough to a Metro station that it didn't matter as much. Warning, the neighborhood didn't look that bad but I later found out that walking around at night was probably not the best idea. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was... More
