Fantastic quiet corner in heart of the city. Beautiful courtyard for breakfast (weather permitting! ) and good range of food for same. Slightly unpredictable electrics in my room (bedside light not working and a kettle which worked occasionally). Bed a bit hard for my taste. And somehow booking.com gave them to understand that 2 of me was staying because I... More

Well presented B&B in a great location in the Historic Quarter of Palermo. Staff were super friendly and really helpful and were great at providing advice on tourist activities and places to eat. Buffet breakfast was really nice with lots of choices and was even more enjoyable being able to eat in the courtyard. Lots of great small Street food... More

After spending one awful night in an apartment hotel down the road we were very happy to find this hidden gem. With very helpful and accommodating staff, this B&B was perfect for our city exploring visit. The rooms were basic but clean and modern and more than comfortable. the courtyard was small but beautiful and the breakfast more than satisfactory.... More

Donnatella saved my holiday! I booked elsewhere and it wasn't what we expected......fortunately after 1 night I found this historic Palacio. Donnatella and her small team made us feel as though we were staying in their family home. Such a peaceful location in the centre of a bustling historical centre. When we return to Palermo, we will come home to... More

A very reasonably priced room, very attractive with good bathroom. Charming inner court. Very good breakfast. Proprietor Donnatella will collect at the airport. Very charming and helpful lady, who speaks English. Very good position in the old town. Nice cat.

Al Giardino dell'Alloro is a wonderful place to stay if you visit Palermo. I organise EU funded (Erasmus+) cultural heritage courses for European teachers in many places of Europe. Last week (15-21 February 2016) we had a group in this B&B. All course participants were very content about the place: the centre of old Palermo, fine and affordable rooms, good... More

To Donatella and her amazing staff, Gracie for making everything perfect for our week long stay. We highly recommend this B & B which is near all sites but far enough from the traffic to provide a quiet environ after day long touring. Especially appreciated the parking garage and facility security.

We had a great stay at Al Giardino Del Alloro. Great location, in between Palermo’s historic center and La Kalsa, close to the seafront and many attractions (don’t miss the Iglesia de San Cataldo and the puppet theater shows). The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean and the owner (Donatella) and staff (Murali and Myrian) are very kind and helpful.... More

We spent 14 days here in late April and found it an ideal place to stay: comfortable, clean, well appointed, good service, quiet, located in the old city close to museums, interesting churches and palaces, and in easy walking distance from the airport bus, the railway station and the sea front. Donatella was most helpful and speaks good English.

Al Giardino dell'Alloro is a wonderful B and B tucked away in a quiet corner of the medieval part of Palermo. The rooms are very well appointed, and the owner was incredibly helpful with suggestions of where to eat and where to stay the next night. The breakfast was pretty basic, but in every other way this was a great... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the historical centre of the city, inside the quarter of the Kalsa, just opposite Villa dell’Alloro, our bed&breakfast is different from the others. We have called it "b&b&arts": in the rooms and the communal spaces you will find paintings, photographs and sculptures of contemporary Sicilian artists. You will find not only well-furnished rooms, where every colour tones in with the idea the room expresses, but also wide communal spaces and a luminous courtyard where breakfast is served in summer and where you can spend your time chatting and relaxing. All rooms are equipped with bathroom with shower inside the room, hot-cold air-conditioning, electronic key that allows access to the whole structure, safe, LED TV, wi-fi free and many other amenities. The rooms are serviced by private elevator, and overlook a quiet courtyard, where you can spend your free time. ... more   less
