Great location just steps away from the cathedral. Beautiful spacious, clean, elegant bedroom and a separate sitting room, which is very welcome for travelers. Small fridge was helpful. Good lighting. Nice terrace with sink and lines for our beach laundry, as well as view on the neighborhood. Bathroom sparklingly clean and up to date, quite beautiful. Loads of freshly laundered...

This B & B is in a great location but not to easy to find. We got very lucky and a man on the street actually came up to our car and asked if we needed help with an address. He then turned around and pointed to another man who he said was the director of the B & B!... More

We arrived in busy Palermo in the afternoon. The B&B is located in a typical Sicilian alley, in a very central location, perfect to discover the city on foot. A free parking area is two minute walk away. We were greeted by a friendly Italian lady, and the owner arrived five minutes later. He gave us a touristic map of... More

Nice and clean internally, double room is reasonable large enough, service fit the price paid and will recommend it to anyone. The fellow in charge was very pleasant and serviceable as well. The location is near the city centre.

We stayed for 6 days late May to early June and loved it. It's located close to the Cathedral and other sites and is a comfortable place to escape the noise and bustle. The rooms are clean and well kept. Breakfast was always a pleasure. The host was friendly and was helpful in arranging cabs. The only difficulty was that... More

This was a lovely place for our 5 day stay in Palermo. Easy to find, nice breakfast, great location. You may need a cell phone to contact the owner as there is not front desk. Once called, they were very quick to get us in.

This was not a bad place to stay, but didn't quite live up to the photos, description, and reviews. The bathroom was lovely, the bed comfortable, and breakfast delicious (but bring your own fruit). I liked the little street where it was located (don't count on your iPhone to get you there), but our welcome to the b&b was perfunctory,... More

We've just spent a happy seven days at the Federico Secondo. Our room was airy, spacious and light, with french windows to a small balcony overlooking a quiet but sociable car-free little street.

We would like to extend our gratitude to Viincenzo for looking after us during our brief stay in Palermo. We arrived in an exhausted state, and were treated with sympathy, courtesy, and kindness The second floor room was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with good aircon, wonderfully relaxing memory foam mattress and pillows, which gave us much needed rest....
