Just to echo other reviews. The terrace is stunning and a great place to have breakfast. Barbara and Emiliano and all their staff were very helpful and friendly. We had two separate stays with them. For the second stay we were in the annex room on the mezzanine floor. This was fine but we'd like to point out that you did get a little bit more noise from people passing by on the shared staircase. I would still heartily recommend this B&B, just a few steps away from Via Maqueda and the twin sites of Chiesa San Cataldo and Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio. Finally - the fluffiest towels we have ever experienced.

We had a splendid time in Palermo and a perfect stay in the B&B! The charming B&B ist located in the historical part of the city, the cathedral, the Norman palace and the central station are within walking distance. The rooms in the B&B are very beautiful and clean. The breakfast is served on the terrace where you have a stunning view over the city. Barbara and Emiliano are the perfect hosts: very cordial , always helpful and gave us good recommendations for restaurants and activities. And also the girl who was serving breakfast and the cleaning lady were very friendly and made our stay in the B&B even more enjoyable. Grazie Mille! We will recommend it to our friends and family!

The location of the B&B is ideal, only a 10 minute walk to the station and then right in the heart of the main sights. Barbara and Emiliano were very helpful during our stay, starting with advising us by WhatsApp about checking in prior to our arrival, then by Emiliano meeting us on the stairs to help with our luggage, and giving us very useful and accurate advice on where to go and places to eat. The room was comfortable, nice decor, and they provided extra pillows on request. Air con was available but not actually required as the temperature was okay. The terrace was one of our main reasons for booking this place and we were not disappointed. Having breakfast there was perfect as the views were beautiful. We also took advantage of sitting up there one afternoon with a bottle of wine while the sun set. Breakfast was okay, it would have been even better if the croissants were some of the amazing filled ones you get in most cafes. Overall we thought this was a lovely place to stay with very accomdating owners, and a great terrace to relax on.

We have just returned from a long weekend in Palermo. We had an excellent stay at La Terrazza sul Centro. The location provides the perfect base for seeing all the major sites of Palermo. Starting each day with breakfast on the beautiful terrace was unforgettable. Our bedroom was very comfortable and quiet, an advantage of being on the top floor. The owner, Barbara is charming as is Mary who serves breakfast. Would also recommend the airport transfer as a stress free means of reaching the hotel. No need for a car.
