We stayed 5 days in Palermo and did enjoyed our stay very much indeed. Alessandra and Rio (very handsome) were really helpful, warm and welcome . Breakfast was good and Susana give us lot's of tips where to go and they all spoke good English. As the others said; the roads are narrowed and too close, but that is most of Sicily and specially the hotel is at the old part of the town. The place is as safe as it can be, but be on guard for the odd "motorino" (boy on little scooters) as they will take your handbag if you don't be on alert. Just a little misfortune happens from time to time when they can spot a careless tourist.
Apart from that, the Sicilian's are truly lovely people all together, very helpful on the streets and they can take you by the hand to show you where do you want to go. Traffic is crazy and don't assume they will stop for you on zebra crossing - go with locals: they are very bold!!
