We arrived after getting lost in the city. After a climb up lovely red marble stairs, we arrived at the B&B. Sensational. Our hosts were very attentive, the room was comfortable and the breakfast on the roof terrace at a shared table was delicious and satisfying. it was close to good restaurants and bars and all the sights.

Delightful owners, but not for average tourists. If you want real aristocrats go there. But you have to climb up 5 storeys... The palazzo is in ruins, so not for the faint hearted or legged. The street us filthy, but the owners are wonderful. A bit expensive, but what can I say? If you want 5 star don't stay there,... More

This B & B is located in a very old building some of which is a museum. In the B & B there are suits of armour and weapon collections. The owners and their staff are lovely and breakfast on the roof terrace is a lovely experience. The room suffered a bit from being several hundred years old but the... More

I've never stayed in such a grand and charming B&B. The owners and staff were the friendliest and most helpful ever. The little touches, like cake and coffee when we arrived, the location, the genuinely unique decor and beautiful atmosphere made our time in Palermo very special. Highly, highly recommended.

We spent 3 days staying in the Torre on a B&B basis. It was amazingly atmospheric, staying in an ancient palazzo and really felt like one was experiencing the heart of Palermo. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, really hospitable. Breakfast was huge and varied and served on a lovely rooftop terrace. The palazzo is right... More

This B&B is located in downtown Palermo and is within walking distance of all the main attractions and is less than a mile from the main train station.We decided to walk because the distance appeared to be so short. After about 1 1/2 hours of walking, dragging our suitcases and asking many people who don't speak any english, we finally... More

Two friends and I spent a week at Torre dei Fedorico over New Year's Eve 2014. We were all overwhelmed by the splendid art and architecture of Palermo, and the icing on the cake was our stay at this B&B. It is located right in the heart of the old section of Palermo in an ancient palace which is still... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Conte Federico B&B in July 2014. It is located in the old center of Palermo, a little difficult to find initially by car, especially because of the one way streets but we found that the access is in fact very easy from Corso Vittorio Emanuele (main street of the old center). As I said... More

Hard to find and in ghetto location. Verified parking space and was not available upon arrival. Much confusion over wifi password with the owners. Tiny shower even by european standards. Seven flights of stairs with no elevator or bellhop. Fortunately the last stay of our trip.
