“Lovely apartment in the heart of Palermo”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My wife and I have just had 8 days enjoying Palermo and staying at the Ponticello apartments. They provide the perfect base for exploring Palermo and are excellent value for money.

We stayed in the apartment on the top floor and while it was still a bit cold to sit out (January), we had a lovely view down to the square below and across the rooftops from the terrace which spans the apartment, and thoroughly enjoyed having the sun stream through the large French windows (I suppose in Sicily they may be called something else!). The apartments themselves are modern, beautifully designed and well equipped.
They are also very well looked-after and kept very clean. Cristina is a great hostess, and very ably supported by Salam, who was very helpful. Everything of interest in the old town is just a short walk away. We highly recommend without any reservation.

“Outstanding Location”
Reviewed December 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

If you are in the process of arranging for accommodations in Palermo, you will make an excellent choice if you select Ponticello Apartments. Our stay in these outstanding accommodations was greatly enhanced by the hospitality of the manager, Christina. She is extraordinarily warm and gracious and especially generous with her friendly manner and helpful advice. She also has a wonderful assistant, Salam. Everything about our stay was beyond expectations even though they were high after reading reviews of Ponticello Apartments. If you're looking to book a room(s) in Palermo, don't hesitate to contact Christina and hope that there is availability.

“Modern convenience in the heart of historic Palermo, with a superb host”
Reviewed November 5, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The ultra- modern Ponticello Apartments are located in an old neighbourhood within walking distance of most of Palermo's historic sites. The architecttural renovation inside is impressive, including an elevator to the upper floor apartments and many convenient features within. Our apartment on the third floor was very spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet - the last a real plus in Palermo! The manager, Cristina, ably assisted by the friendly resident caretaker, Salam, is a superb host who speaks excellent English and offers great advice about her city's sites and restaurants. Cristina is a wonderful ambassador for Palermo. Grazie mille!

“Fantastic location, ultra modern”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Cristina welcomed us, helped us park, and was always on hand. I have given 5 stars because the location and finish are exceptional, though there are a few jiggly problems.
Firstly the 2 expensive TV s have no English channels so we're useless to us, and secondly, the kitchen equipment is a bit sparse and not very good quality.
The big positive was the central but quiet and very safe environment, plus of course the ever helpful Cristina

“A beautiful stay”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

An absolutely wonderful stay from the moment we walked in.
The staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable and the building is modern and our apartment was beautiful, clean and with an excellent layout.
My only criticism would be the lack of international TV channels available but the excellent WiFi enabled us to stream shows from home.

If we return to Palermo then we'll stay at Ponticello.

“Ideal place to stay”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This self catering apartment building is perfectly placed for visits to practically all of the tourist attractions in Palermo. It is quiet and very comfortable with quality wi_fi. The manager/owner was both charming and helpful also organising transport to and from the airport.If looking for an apartment this is just right.

The apartment we had was absolutely stunning! Great size, balcony and a lovely kitchen.
Close to a bunch of restaurants and only about 10 minutes walk from the centre, it was a fantastic experience.
Would recommend this place to anyone going there!
