Like a previous reviewer, we were a bit baffled to find our B&B on the 4th floor of a large building (there is a lift - taking 2 people and one suitcase). Having stayed for 5 days, I can only say that Ricardo's and Sara's service was second to none. The B&B is a 4-5 bedroom flat, well insulated and the double-glazing dampens most of the street noise of armies of Vespa drivers and the occasional ambulance. Breakfast is typically Italian, i.e. on the very sweet side, with a warm chocolate croissant and lots more. We bought a couple of savory things and eggs to have a more continental breakfast and Ricardo boiled us an egg every morning. The place is eerily quite at night, so it was easy to go along the Italian way, sleep early and get up early. We would have like a tea/coffee making facility in the room, for a nightcap cuppa - so we had to have a bottle of wine instead -). All in all I can only agree with the previous reviewers. We think they must have made some changes, since every room has now a bathroom allocated opposite of your room and bathroom sharing as mentioned before did not happen. If you do not wish to love in the bustling old city centre of Palermo, we recommend to go to Bondello (Beach) - 30 minutes out of town with a frequent no 806 bus service. Public transport at 3.50 Euro for an all day ticket per person, is a very cheap and quick way to get anywhere, including beautiful Monreal and Pellegrini mountain that you can see from the B&B's balcony. PS Take a minimum of bags, cards & money, valuables on your daily excursions. We had an experience with bag thieves, they are ridiculously fast - and we had a lucky escape. Have a nice stay anyway
