Sant Agostino BB is an amazing restructured building in the heart of Palermo.
It's situated inside the "Il Capo" Market one of the oldest and most typic markets of the city.
Although the rough tiny traditional Sicilian road full of stalls and people, once you get inside the door of the San't Agostino BB you feel like you're in heaven. There's no sound and everything is tidy and clean. You can forget about the rest of the world and relax. It's also beautiful and curated in every detail. All the people that work there are friendly and extremely helpful.
I was there for two weeks and I have to say I will remember it forever.
I felt better than my own home.
There's a back garden that is just great and I bet in the summer is even better!
The building that is all part of the bb (this made me feel very SAFE) is full of amazing paintings and sculptures by the same artist and the walls are frescoes following the old Baroque style. The forniture are quite modern and very functional but of good taste.
The kitchen is above all dreams and you can use it to cook your own dinner or lunch as well.
The staff is available only in the morning from 7 to 11:30 for the breakfast otherwise if you need something you can call them and they always try to help.
There's also a lift if you don't fancy to walk the stairs (1 floor).
In the room there are: tv, blowdryer, hand soap, air conditioning, towels and amazing warm bedsheets and throws.
In the main room where the breakfast tables are there's also an electronic black baby grand piano, that we played. There's also a nice guitar and a Computer you can use to connect.
The internet is wireless and it gets into most of the rooms.
I haven't found a supermarket close to the bb but you can get most of what you need in the actual market, since you're IN it. There's a small coop in via Maqueda about 15mins walk.
The bb is VERY close to the Teatro Massimo di Palermo (2 mins walk) and it's close to Vucciria Market (20mins) and to via Maqueda.
15 mins walk to Teatro Politeama and also to the bus that goes to the airport.
The owner also have little apartments to rent around the corner from the bb, but I like the bb experience a lot more and seeing other people in the morning.
I really recommend it if you're working person, if you're a student it may be a bit expensive.
Will go again.
