Hey from Rosario

Member since January 2022 | 2,825 hits
Hello everyone. My name is Rosario Cicciarella for friends Saro. I am originally from Modica in the province of Ragusa.

Since 2019 I have been living in Palermo with my partner Caterina and my 9-year-old daughter Viola.

I lived abroad for many years in London and then in Brussels. We have decided to return to our land and to bring a little European breath to the neighborhood of the Historical Market of Ballarò.

We speak English, French, Italian, Arabic and a little bit of Spanish.

We are passionate about cooking and music and we like to travel with the mind along with your adventures.

A glass of wine on the terrace at sunset, going around the city, concerts, art exhibitions, cultural events.

We are part of some third sector associations in the hotel district, we are in favor of inclusion and hospitality policies and we put the concept of humanity first. Our land is where our feet rest.

We are waiting for you in our structure and we will try to brighten your stay by giving you all the possible advice to be able to experience an unforgettable stay in our beautiful land.

The sea, the sun, in street food, enjoy a good glass of wine talking and dreaming with you.

Great place to stay, Rosario was amazing as he responded quickly to our messages and suggested a great place to have dinner. It's a little difficult to find, but the rooms were great and a five minute walk to Quattro Canti and the market is right outside the building. Views from the room were magnificent and would definitely stay here again when returning to Palermo.

Wonderful place, area verging on the old Arab district, may look creepy to many, but the experience is unforgettable. The view from the room, the non-obvious safety of the place... will come back if opportunity arises.

Ottima struttura vicinissima al centro. La camera aveva la terrazza con vista spettacolare sul centro e sul mercato di Ballarò. Si sentivano i rumori del mercato anche a finestre chiuse ma personalmente non mi hanno dato fastidio. Gentile e disponibile il gestore.

Il B&B è comodissimo e molto ben tenuto, le camere sono belle con viste molto buone. Il solo punto sorprendente e abbastanza sgradevole è il quartiere un po' oppressivo che può impaurire al di fuori dei giorni di mercato. Nonostante, la localizzazione permette di accedere velocemente a tutti i punti d'interesse e alla stazione, una posizione strategica per percorrere la città a piedi.

B&B unico, nel cuore pulsante del mercato di Ballarò, di cui si respira pienamente l'atmosfera. Rinnovato da poco, gestito con cordialità e disponibilità.
