The room was somewhat shabby chic, but our hosts were lovely and extremely accommodating. They hardly spoke any English (or French, or Spanish, or German) and we don't speak Italian so our stay involved a lot of sign language, but we managed. There were a couple of slight problems while we were there (no hot water, a tripped switch, etc); but they resolved them very quickly and with good humour. Our biggest issue was actually finding the place, firstly, there are two B&Bs of the same name, and secondly the plaque bearing the name of this place is about three doors down from where it actually is! If you're staying here, you need to go through the large blue gate next to the hardware shop - there will be somebody about to show you in. Our host baked (awesome) fresh pastries every morning and made us cappuccinos and espresso. The room was lower than ground level so, although we couldn't find any working air conditioning, it remained nice and cool.
So to sum up: if you're used to five star luxury, this may not be the place for you; but if you're looking for somewhere comfortable, friendly, and reasonably central to Mondello to lay your head, I would put Baglio Busalacchi on your short list.More
