We stayed here just for one night. Few steps away from the city centre, this B&B is perfect choice for Palau. The rooms are very nice, bathrooms big and new and impeccably clean. The owner is nice and helpful. The breakfast is so generous that you will not need lunch!

We stayed for 2 nights in September and couldn't find fault with anything- lovely room, great breakfast, friendly welcome and very close to the harbour from where we did a fantastic day trip to the Madellena Islands.

The welcomeing move of Pietro was to move his own car away for our benefit in an area with scant parking possiblilities. Next was his handout of folder material about all possible activities in and around Palau plus a map of town handwritten review with value for money restaurants, the best available boating trips etc. His breakfast table was the...

This place is impeccably clean, the breakfast is good and the location great. My husband and I stayed there for three days in august and we were really impressed with everything. It's not a luxury hotel by any means but it is charming and the owner Pietro is very friendly and his breakfasts are great. I would not hesitate to... More

We stayed based on the positive reviews we read and they are all correct. Peter runs a great little B&B which is so close to the night markets and marinas while still in a quiet neighborhood. CLEAN. Peter is very accommodating. We are now in a different city paying 3X more and it is way below the quality of stay... More

We stayed in this beautiful B&B in June 2014 for three nights. We were warmly welcomed by Peter who even had reserved a car parking space for us when we arrived in the evening. Peter, who is an amazing host, showed us our spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equiped room and made us feel incredibly welcome throughout our stay. There... More

Exceedingly clean, comfortable and well equiped. Excellent breakfasts! Peter is a kind and thoughtful host. Easy access to La Madelena and boat trips around the islands. We ended up extending our stay by several nights.

Where to begin? We really couldn't fault this fantastic B&B. It was very easy to find, and we were greeted warmly by Peter who showed us to our lovely, clean, bright and spacious room. Peter doesn't speak much English, and we spoke even less Italian but we got there between us! The room was beautifully decorated and nice and airy,... More

This is as good as B and B's get. The rooms and ensuite are very large and superbly presented. Peter provides a great range of local information and the breakfast is fantastic with a great range of different foods provided. Peter encourages guests to take away left over breakfast items. He is very helpful in many different ways. The B... More

Very comfortable and clean room panoramic view with large bathroom. Situated in center of Palau but in a very quiet street. Very, very complete breakfast with fresh fruit, cheese, ham, croissant, youghurt, eggs and so on. Pietro (Peter) is a very gentle and careful host. Plenty of documentation about the region and advise for restautants. The drapes were renewed every... More
