“Perfect Palermo experience”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great service! Really accommodating host, quite central location next to nice shops and restaurants as well as sights. Of all of our Italian hotel / hostel experiences this one was the best! For a great experience in Palermo you should absolutely book here!

We really enjoyed the stay of three nights at this place. It is very central. So we could see the most important sightseeings of this fantastic town. Luca is a very friendly and polite person, who gave us a lot of good advices for Palermo.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the B&B for one night while passing through Palermo.

The room was very big and tastefully decorated.Note that the bathroom was not alongside the room we stayed in and you did have to walk through the dining room to get there but we did not find that a problem as we seemed to have that part of the house to ourselves or at least we didn't bump into anyone.

Luca gave us an introduction to the city; providing us with a map and pointing out places to visit. He was very helpful. Breakfast was sugar filled which I gather is typical of Italy, it's not something I'm used to so it was fun having cake for breakfast!

This B&B was great value, very quiet location, clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

Tip: If you are getting the bus from the airport get off at the stop for the Teatro. Get off at one of the first stops the bus makes and you will recognise it as a huge square with an impressive opera theatre. We made the mistake of staying on the bus until we arrived at central station and ended up having to walk back on ourselves which is no fun when you have a heavy suitcase.

Stayed in the B&B for 1 night. Its about a 5-10 min walking distance from where the airport bus drops you. We took the 9 PM flight so got in to the B&B about 10:30. Nice clean room with air con, good host - we could drop our bags the next day and just come and collect them later in the day. its about a 20 min walking distance to the train station and I would suggest this is the nicer part of palermo old town.

The Ai Vicere is a charming B&B in the centre of Palermo, right near the Teatro Massimo.

Angela and her family gave us a very warm Italian welcome, although we spoke very little Italian and she spoke very little English, we had fun working out what each other were saying.

We stayed in a double room, which was spacious, and came with beautiful modern art and TV, DVD player. There was what looked like a brand new ensuite too. The B&B was very clean and stylish.

Breakfast was lovely with fresh cheese and ham toasties, breads, crossiants, yoghurts, cakes and cereals. Fresh coffee and tea were avalable as well as water and orange juice.

Angelas son (sorry I can't rememer his name) spoke English and was more than happy to recommend us places to see and eat.

Overall the B&B was lovely, and a very high standard. I would have given it a 5 out of 5, but I've had to give is 4, purely because the walls were quite thin and you could hear people in the morning eating their breakfast, and our room was right next to an old-style elevator which was quite loud when people were using it (which really wasn't too often).

I would thoroughly recommend it.
