Our family stayed overnight here on our way to meet our boat charter to tour the Aeolian Islands. What a surprise to find the most accommodating host at this B&B. From the moment we arrived (somewhat exhausted from our overnight flight from NYC to Palermo) we felt welcomed and pampered by the proprietor (Alessandro) and his staff. From great recommendations...

This is without an exaggeration and without a doubt the best B&B I have ever stayed in. STAY HERE. If it is full, change your tickets so you can stay here. The building cleverly mixes the original features with the modern and new. The rooms are decent size, the shower - powerful, the wifi fast and air con functioning perfectly,... More

Everything about this place is great as mentioned by other reviews, we stayed for just one night but could have happily stayed longer. The décor is really interesting and cleverly done. The breakfast is very filling and tasty with local pastries, fresh fruit, ham toasties and plenty of coffee! The location is great with the main street only a short... More

This is a great B&B in the heart of Ballaro' neighborhood in Palermo. Fantastic location, great staff, can't think of a better place to explore the flavors of this gorgeous city. If you have car the staff will find a solution for you in a private parking 1 minute walk from the premises. Clean, functional, in a reconverted church, this... More

We stayed in Porta di Castro for three nights. Both Alessandro's were really friendly and welcoming. We really liked the excellent city centre location, the quirky decor and the fantastic breakfast. A great place to stay if you're taking a few days to explore this lovely city.

This B&B was well situated to explore the old town of Palermo. The hosts were extremely helpful in finding great food options as well as suggestions of what to see. Breakfasts were also very generous. Rooms were quirky but tasteful.

We only were able to stay one night in Palermo but this Bed and Breakfast place was fabulous and quirky! Attention to detail in the rooms was immaculate. Alessandro met us late at night after our flight was delayed and recommended a Trattoria only minutes walk away which we would not have found ourselves. Woke up to a fabulous breakfast... More

This is probably one of the best places I've ever been. Not only because of the beautiful rooms, the attention is just the best. If there's something they can help you with, they won't even ask, you will have your problems solved in just minutes.

Stayed at B&B Porta di Castro for 3 nights in June. This is a quirky b&b in the back streets of the city. Not a pretty location but very central for all the main sites and for picking up the hop-on-hop-off buses. The staff were lovely and very helpful and friendly and speak good English. Be aware, there are no... More

We arrived in Palermo after traveling around Sicily for 10 days. Lost within minutes, we called Alessandro who came by scooter to lead us to the hotel. He then arranged for someone to help us return our car to Hertz on the other side of town (we NEVER would have found it) Having then realized that we had left an... More
