“Perfect Historic Center Location”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

Casa del Baronello is a great place to stay in Palermo's historic center. The apartment is equipped with every household item one could possibly need. It is secure and safe, and the location is ideal for exploring Palermo without a car. The owner is a clear communicator and is readily available to help without being intrusive. The apartment is like a grand palatial fortress. The rooms are spatious and the kitchen is stocked with dishware, utensils and appliances that make it a delight to buy fresh food and produce in the nearby Capo market and cook a delectable feast in your own niche of Palermo's most historic neighborhood. There is also ample space for a family with young children.
Contrary to remarks in a previous review, the noise level is not a detraction when one observes that Palermo is a major city with a vibrant European nightlife. Yes, there is a very nice club/bar nextdoor to the apartment, but it is actually a very reputable establishment where locals go to enjoy good music and conversation. It is not a discotecque by any means. There are children there with their parents and people of all ages enjoying life after work. If you are looking for quiet nights, I suggest going out to the Sicilian countryside. Take advantage of the apartment's proximity by having a glass of wine on your own balcony or by joining in on the festivities downstairs in an inclusive and light hearted environment. It is no different then having an apartment on a plaza/piazza. This is part of life in Palermo and one would be hard pressed to find a completely quiet apartment in this bustling city of historic and cultural wealth.
The apartment is exceptionally clean and well appointed. It has nice lighting and some good natural light as well. It is very easy to walk from the apartment to the Cathedral and most major sights. I also suggest the famous Cuticchio Puppet Theater which is also a short walk from the apartment. There are many archaelogical and historic gems surrounding the actual apartment grounds and Casa del Baronello offers a peaceful reprieve after long magical days of exploration. This is a very thoughtfully arranged place to stay and the owner puts a lot of attention and care into the guests' well being. Bravo Casa del Baronello!

“Sadly spoilt by noise”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

Casa Del Baronella is situated close to many of the popular sites in the city of Palermo. Don't bring a car as Palermo is Full! The appartment consists of two double bedrooms, one at each end, with two bathrooms and the kitchen in between, all clean and comfortable.
There is a small balcony but the whole appartment is situated, not as in the picture (that's where the owners live overlooking a quiet courtyard/parking area ) but at the rear of the building. Within 12 feet of all our opening windows is the loudest discoteque/night club in Europe. The music starts late evening and on our first night, Thursday, went on until 1 o'clock in the morning ( We had only arrived after getting up at 3 am to get to Gatwick ). On the next night the music blared away until 3 o'clock in the morning. As I write this I am looking for alternative accommodation ( half-way through our stay ) as we are dreading Saturday night.
This is a terrible shame as the owners are lovely people and have invested in modern double-glazing but the noise at night is just too powerful, reverberating throughout the whole appartment and sleep is impossible. All the windows are shut and I wear foam ear plugs ( meant for the plane ) but the music is unstoppable.
Suitable For: Insomniacs, deaf people or youngsters who would probably think that this is exactly what they are looking for.
Unsuitable For: Everyone else.

Dear Graham and Ivette, first I want to thank you for acknowledging our efforts in ensuring the best to our guests.
The historic center of Palermo is famous for its intense and fun nightlife, which attracts many people. I agree, however, that this fascinating feature of the city can not be at the expense of peaceful sleep as guests of Casa del Baronello. For this reason we have equipped all the windows of the structure of cutting-edge fixtures, the best with regard to noise reduction of external noise. These fixtures allow us to guarantee a peaceful night to our guests, which is accompanied by the pleasure of staying in one of the most beautiful and fascinating area of the City, in a location, which is Casa of Baronello, representative of the beauty of the old mansions of Palermo.
Anyway, I understand your discomfort because actually, in the days of your stay, the pubs you mentioned in your review have disregarded the rules in force concerning the amplification of music. Precisely for this reason they have received very heavy penalties, such as pecuniary fines and the obligation to close the activity for a week. I hope that this serves to show how much we, but also the city administration and its guardians take care of the welfare of our tourists. Unfortunately this is not quite resolutive to ensure that all people comply with the law, but certainly warrants a serious commitment on our part.

Thank you again, it is always useful to receive constructive feedbacks.

“Splendid sojourn in Palazzo Cupane”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I, together with other family members, including a child, had the pleasure to stay recently (August 2015) for one week at the beautiful, historic and restored Casa del Baronello in Palazzo Cupane. Right from the warm personal welcome given by Francesca up to the end it has been a very pleasant and enriching experience.
To start with, the house has a very privileged location, particularly for us that decided not to rent a car. Just off the main street in the historic center (Via Vittorio Emanuele) and at walking distance from the Cattredale di Palermo, Palazzo dei Normanni, Via Maqueda, Teatro Massimo, Fontana Pretoria and many other places of historic and cultural interest (churches, museums, art galleries, etc.). Furthermore, restaurants, patisseries, “focaccerias”, grocery stores and drugstores are conveniently located nearby.
The Palazzo Cupane is an impressive and recently restored building, with a main wooden entrance gate and interior atrium that makes you feel going nicely back in time.
When you get inside the apartment you start to notice the interior architecture, with high ceilings, two spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms (the showers in both of them are great and better than in many four-star hotels that we have been before), a dining space and an ample open space kitchen with a large window and all the basic appliances, china and silverware that you may need if you want to prepare your own breakfast and light meals (as we did everyday), or to even cook more sophisticated lunch or dinner dishes, if you feel like.
The bedroom furniture and interior decoration resemble minimalist.
The two amazingly silent and very efficient air conditioners (one in each bedroom) were key to provide us a perfect indoor condition to counterbalance the hot and humid weather outside, typical of Palermo during the summer.
We definitely recommend Casa del Baronello if you want to experience “the best of Palermo within a walking distance.”

grazie per la recensione, è stato un piacere ospitarvi, spero di ricevervi presto di nuovo! La zona in cui si trova Casa del Baronello è uno dei suoi punti di forza, e la presenza di locali nelle prossimità rende piacevole e non pericoloso frequentare i dintorni anche la sera! La movida notturna palermitana è una delle "attrazioni" della città, perché insita nella nostra cultura e nel nostro retaggio un po' spagnolo!
Grazie ancora, e spero a presto!
