We have just stayed at this B and B and had a lovely time. The room with balcony overlooking the street was fab as was the breakfast room and the breakfast. Staff were really helpful too. Although the area is quite rough I never felt anxious about walking around at night indeed it felt quite safe and very lively!!! I... More

Honestly there is nothing to say. Just do not hesitate. They are welcoming. The room is nice and big. The atmosphere is charming. The location is ok (though maybe not the safest in Palermo at night). The best? The breakfast outside in a small, calm and lovely place. I recommand this place.

Couldn't have been more convenient (in the heart of Ballaro in Palermo's historic center, very atmospheric). The staff was excellent. The hotel was pretty. Please note the front desk has somewhat strange hours (as a B&B, there is not someone there 24 hours). The concierge went out of her way to help us meet all our needs in advance, though.... More

The location is perfect...Within walking distance of most everything. Being in the old city, there is a charm and grittiness not found in greater Palermo. As tourists, this is the area where we wanted to be. We parked our car on the street across from the B&B for three days. No problem. Our accommodations were quiet, roomy with a great... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in June. Lovely B&B right in the centre on Palermo. Only good things to say about this place. Great room and very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Breakfast was also very nice and perfect eating out in their court yard. Would defo recommend this place and would stay again if I went back to Palermo.... More

Great, helpful staff, a big thank you to Marta for all her information and getting us glasses of wine in the garden after a busy day in the town. I would highly recommend it and it is the only...

Beautifully restored and renovated, it was always a pleasure to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, very comfortable and so easy on the eye. The friendly and very professional receptionist gave us a list of hotels to try and they were outstanding. Da Carlo is...

Such a welcoming, helpful, considerate staff, lovely breakfast, interesting and convenient location. The Ballaró market provides an exceptional Palermitano experience, and it is literally down the street from the B&B. The staff helped us out by making dinner reservations and calling cabs - we actually hired one to take us to Monreale and pick us up later, which was a... More

For our purpose to get a glimpse of Palermo city within two days the B&B was perfect because everything was within walking distance, the house was nicely furnished, the service very good and Palermo as a city breathtaking.
