From the beginning until the end of our stay, Gloria and Zaza were very friendly and helpful. The apartments are beautiful, well appointed and central, but amazingly quiet. We loved staying there and would definitely stay again if in Palermo. We could easily walk to all the main areas we wanted to see. Couldn't have wanted better.

“Hospitality at its best in Bee Claire”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

I stayed together with a friend for 11 days in Palermo. This was our first time using Airbnb. Gloria, the owner, and Zaza were very friendly and hospitable. When we arrived late in the evening at the apartment, there was a cold bottle of water, the room was clean, we had sheets and towels. It was a very warm welcome. During our stay, we sometimes had a maintenance problem in our room. Gloria made sure that on the same day the problem was solved. Furthermore, our towels and sheets were once replaced for new ones. It felt like we were staying in a hotel. I am very positive about Bee Claire. Besides the fact that it is runned by great and hospitable people, it is also situated very central. It is near to the central station and the main streets. We had a very pleasant stay at Bee Claire and I can recommend it to everyone coming to Palermo.

“Wonder visit and STAY in Palermo”

I have been to Palermo multiple times. This time I selected Bee Claire for a one week stay, based on the the first impression that I got in 2013 when visiting a friend of mine staying there. I must say that it was a great pleasure to stay at Bee Claire, my violet room was awesomely clean and decorated with such a style..., the hosts Gloria and Zaza made a great experience out of my visit, which I expect to repeat in april. Last, but no least, Bee Claire is very well located to Massimo, Gregorio´s Pop Krooner (Karaoke), Trattoria Da Salvo, and you name it..

Bee Claire is well located in the old part of Palermo, surrounded by most places of historical significance, good shopping and great dining. It has good access to public transportation and is only a 30 minute bus ride to the beautiful private beaches of Mondello. Gloria, the owner, was very warm and gracious. We received a friendly reception from her and her canine companion, "Smokey" and were made to feel like welcome guests to her beautiful home. The room was lovely and bright with comfortable beds and kitchen basics. The only let down was the bathroom's plumbing. The shower cubicle was small and the base would overflow quickly, so showers were pitifully short. Be sure to note the address of the property, as I couldn't spot one on the Home page, and get directions. The building is tucked in a warren of ancient cobble stoned streets and isn't distinguishable until after you get there. All in all, a special place to stay.

“An ideal base in the city”

Great location close to the lively Ballaro market (3 mins walk, great for breakfasts and picnic goodies) and the Quattro Canti, the heart of the old city. The apartment was clean and unfussy, with a view onto the quiet inner courtyard. Everything we could have needed. And at a great price. Many thanks for the welcome Gloria (and Smoky)!

“Great little find”

I stayed in the Bee Claire guest house with my friend in March 2013. This is in an excellent central location just a 5/10 minute walk from the train station. it is also very near Ballero market which is fantastic. The apartment is in lovely condition and very clean and reasonably well equipped. The owner lived upstairs and was very helpful and friendly so it was very easy to contact her for advice on anything to do with the apartment.
It might be useful for guests to have a little checklist of things like where the bins go etc, as we did feel we kept on bothering the owner for little things. This however was no problem at all, however, as nothing was too much trouble.
We would definitely stay at Bee Claire again. We paid a very reasonable price for a lovely little apartment.
