I heard about this B&B from a friend and I am really glad I stayed there. I was in Palermo for a conference but could not afford the fancy hotel that most conference members booked. Castiglia's B&B has a great central location and Giuseppe- the owner- gave me a detailed explanation of how to use the public transportation in the city. The room was excellent! Clean and cozy with private bathroom and a nice shower (the shower is very important to me!). The other thing I need to mention is that I looved their breakfast. I was really appreciative when the owners got out of their way to accommodate my dietary needs. I knew they had a standard breakfast so I did not expect anything fancy but everything they served was delicious! They also gave me some really good suggestions for restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a peace of mind about cleanliness and accessibility to the city center!…
B&B is very good situated -near to the train station and city centre. There was no problem of arriving late at nigth. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was big with air conditioning, bathroom small but very clean. Breakfast tasty - warm cornetto, yoghurt, coffee and milk, crackers, jam - and in a good price. The only thing is that it is rather loudly area (cars and scooters are going all the night) but all Palermo is noisy city. And the price could be little bit lower. However we recommend this place.
I did not have a booking and had been wandering around all the decayed areas west of Via Marqueda looking for a room, everything was full. It was getting dark and the streets were looking a bit more dangerous. I saw a young guy with a backpacker pushing the bell at Castiglia and followed him up. I met the owner who very efficiently sorted me out with a room, he also provided information and maps about where myself and my new acquaintance could get a couple of beers and some food. The room was EUR50 and given the excellent location close to the airport bus stand and central Palermo train station I think it was worth the money. The shower was great - very good pressure and the room was clean and it was nice being on the 3rd floor away from street level noises and smells. The area around is interesting - seems like there are a lot of governement and offices around. It was only a short walk to interesting historical sites and shopping streets.…
We stayed here, arriving late one night. They were very professional and efficient. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable the shower was good and the room was a good size. Near the train station and although the areas is a bit less fancy, I felt safe even when going to get cash from the bankomat (ATM) at midnight. If you are used to cities, this would be a great place to explore Palermo from, without spending a huge amount on accommodation.
This was the first B and B we stayed in during our 3 week stay in Sicily and Italy and it was wonderful. Maria and Giuseppe were excellent, helpful hosts who, despite our sketchy Italian, managed to meet our every need. They gave us maps and guided us verbally around the city. One night we got hopelessly lost traveling to another city and were late in returning and they even called us to see if we were okay. The rooms were large, clean, and well ventillated, the bathrooms were exceptionally clean, the breakfasts were great! Yogurt, coffee and fresh rolls, even some fresh fruit, jellies and toasts. We couldn't have been happier. The quirky elevator which has to "rest" between trips added even more charm to the place. Thanks to the lovely hosts and the clean and welcoming rooms, our stay in Sicily was an experience we won't forget.…
