I and my sister stayed at this B&B Palikè for 2 nights. Excellent location for visitors with Sightseeing tour bus just in front of the building, walking distance to historical sites, shopping streets and restaurants, cafe and bars.
We found this hotel from tripadvisor and decided to email for booking. Anna Maria the B&B keeper wrote back in Italian so we had to google translate but everything was easy.
We arrived to our B&B by taxi, it was so easy to find. The place has elevator which is free. The house is clean and good smell. Decoration is very lovely. Anna has a staff from Kenya who speaks English very well. We got room in the corner with en suite bath. The room is big with loft and bedroom for 3rd person. Decoration is very lovely with rocking chair, antique furniture, small refrigerator with big bottle of water provided for free, there are also small snack given. Bathroom is big with shower, bidet, wash cream, shampoo and hairdryer. Towels are clean. Free wifi is available but we have trouble connecting on an iphone but ipad worked just fine.
Anna is very helpful and kind, even though we didn't speak Italian.
Breakfast was lovely, freshly brew espresso and homemade biscotti eaten with Anna husband's relative honey. After breakfast Anna will give us map and recommend what/where to see each day. She also handed us candy before we leave the apartment. And since the bus is just downstairs, every time we changed the bus we always ran up to the room for sunblock/ restroom / jacket.
On the day we check-out, we requested Anna to call us a taxi to the port. We were taking an over-night ferry to Naples. She showed us from her balcony that the port is very near about 500 meters away and we can actually walk. But our luggages are so huge and we didn't think that the wheels will survive to the port so we insisted for a taxi. She made a call. But it turned out that she called Nicola, her husband and Nicola came with his friend in a small car and they took us to the port! We totally love B&B Palikè.
