“Beautiful place, feeling like home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

4 guatemalan friends decide to go to Sicily on an adventure trip...We were lucky to find this place! My friends and I were impressed of this beautiful B&B boutique plus it had a great location. It has a very elegant and modern taste, the bedrooms are neat and comfortable. We loved having our breakfast specially prepared in a cute and cozy dining room. To top if all off, the host was really great! We would definitely stay there again if we ever came back to Palermo.

The B&B is located in an ideal, central and posh part of Palermo. You have to ride a tiny elevator up 6 floors, but there was no problem with it the whole time we were there. The lobby is elegant, clean and smells lovely and the room we had (Room 3) was large, bright and well-designed, with a shared balcony that looks onto the street from 6 floors up.

There was a small stain on the bedding when we arrived and there are a number of scuff marks along the walls, so the room definitely needs a new paint-job, but other than that it was cleaned daily and efficiently. The only other complaint was the shower probably needed a more thorough clean under the raised plastic tiles, but no bad smells or anything of that sort. The cleaning staff was there daily and was very friendly, though spoke limited english if at all.

Maxim himself is not there often, but you can reach him by phone if needed and he was good about getting back to us. Breakfast was repeatedly stale and not very impressive, though there are a variety of choices, but across the street is a little cafe that does fresh and cheap pastries as well.

Our biggest complaint though was the music - they have a sound system that runs through the hallway and within each room (with a personal volume control) and played 4 songs on repeat, over and over, the first 5 days we were there! Although there is a controller in the room to turn it off from playing inside, our controller was broken and so we could not turn it off!! This was even worse when they accidentally left it playing overnight one night. They apologized for this, but continued to play the music in the mornings until we had to ask again for it to be turned off. I would recommend they refrain from playing music at all, because this was infuriating and woke us up repeatedly (not to mention drove us insane hearing the same 4 songs over and over again).

Overall we enjoyed the room, which was lovely and bright, and the Wifi was very good from our room the whole time (though it might be spotty further down the hallway?). The location is the main selling point, as well as the design, which is elegant and attractive.

Room Tip: Rooms 1, 2 and 3 have balconies and face the street side, Room 4 has no balcony and faces the street...

When we arrived at the B&B we were a little bit worried when we saw the house but when got inside it was total different place. We arrived to Palermo in the morning and we got the opportunity to check in at that time. The room was modern and clean. The owner informed us about the city and the seeings. We also asked for a typical italian restaurand and was recommended one near the hotel. It was a nice restaurang and we were probably the only turists there. The breakfast room was very nice and the breakfast was one of our best during our trip in Sicily.

Well located but the surrounding area doesn't seem to be very salubrious - until you realise that the rest of Palermo is much the same. It wasn't clear from previous information that the B&B is in what looks like a residential block containing a number of hotels and Max's is on the 6th floor - but the lift does work. The room are very clean and spacious. Max is very voluable and well informed. He directed us to two very good, non-touristy restaurants within walking distance. One small problem is that this is very much a one man band and there's no-one to turn to if Max is out.

This bb very elegant and clean. Palermo is the most elegant part, in the heart of the center 100 meters from the Politeama theater and 200 meters from Massimo theater. The owner is always there and everyone has a kind words. Recommend to for tourists and businessmen.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice.

Great place right in the center of the city.
The B&B is a nice surprise...when you get to the building there are several bead and breakfast in the different floors, but this one is different since the beginning, starting from the sign on the street, the main door, the lobby...is a real boutique hotel with the price of a bed and breakfast!
Very good service
stylish rooms and nice decoration!

We stayed in the small appartment in B&B and it was perfect. The rooms are nice, modern and comfortable. Maxim's mother was there to welcome us, she was really charming! Breakfast was really nice. Palermo is a wonderful city; so much to see and this B&B is perfect for walking everywhere.
