“Very nice B&B to experience Palermo”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

B&B carella locates in an old building in the very center of Palermo, its room is well designed with modern facilities. I stayed there for 6 nights in total with some friends, and this mixture of old and new gave a very cosy and authetic feeling about Palermo from the very beginning. There is no big sign for this B&B at the entrance, but once you find it, the old gate, you hardly miss it again. The hosts are very friendly, speaking sufficient English. When we need to make some change of the rooms or ask for suggestions, they were very easy going and helpful. I would definitely recommend this B&B to everyone who visits Palermo, who appreciate details of design, comforts, and local spirit of Palermo.

Despite the entrance (the old and beautiful Carella Palace is a rather pitiful conditions), the B&B (first floor, no elevator) is definitely very nice and clean. The staff is helpful and very kind. Location is also very good if you want to visit beautiful but wildly chaotic downtown Palermo.

The B&B Carella is a very nice place to stay. The location is central to the downtown area and all the things to see in Palermo, The rooms are new with modern designs. Our room did not have a shower in the bathroom but the tub was satisfactory for two nights. The staff were great and helped with parking and other needs.

I am not a fan of Bed and Breakfast hotels but I truly love B&B Carella! This place is truly a gem in the middle of chaotic Palermo. Don't be dismayed by the outside entrance, once you get inside you will be impressed by the cleanliness, decor and taste of the place. Run by a sweet young couple, this place has been in their family for generations and they exude pride and strive for excellence. The guests are made to feel like royalty. Each room is an actual suite and has a theme of the elements of Sicily, Volcano, Sea, Land... The rooms are spacious and clean. The location is great, on the main street that will take you anywhere you want to go in Palermo. B&B Carella is my favorite place to stay in Palermo!!!

I like to start with the best part,right in the middle of everything,easy walk to all major attractions in the city,safe area,just opposite there is Palermo Prefecture,near a military zone,so...
In 5 minutes you can reach Teattro Massimo,beautiful,lively,full of good restaurants zone. Or,if you want to take the bus to Mondello Beach,you walk to Teatro Politeama and take the bus.
If you are with the car,there was not free places near the hotel,but,first street after Cavour ,there is a parking garage,20 Eur/day,or,you can go on Cavour ,pass the Prefecture,after the military building,then ,in the right you enter an alley to Piazza A lessandra,there are a lot of free parking places,safe area.
The structure is new,very well designed,very nice people in the staff,nice room,comfy bed.
We were staying on weekend,so ,I think this is the reason they never toke the garbage can from our room,so,in the end ,our bathroom was something alike the street nearby,a bit dirty.
The breakfast was good,they offered us at the beginning only sweet items,we ate,and after 15 minutes they put on the table some savoury,they should tell us from the beginning what to expect,you need to ask.
All in all,a very pleasant experience,I ' ll give anytime this structure another chance.

Room Tip: Only Volcano room has street view !

I had a really super nice time staying at B&B Carella. Frederica, Mauro and Alberto are amazing people.
They make you feel very welcome, comfortable and will help you with any advice you might need during your visit in the city. The rooms are very very nice. All decorated differently, they are super cute and very original. The location is the best. Walking distance from all the things you want to see in the historical center.
No doubt for me, when I go to palermo again, I will definitely know where to stay, and looking forward to see them all again.

Room Tip: they are all amazing! (I stayed in the blue room, and it started to feel like my own apartment, ver...
