Maurizio & Maria Rosa, who manages the property, were kind enough to collect us at very short notice and take us to the apartment. It’s in a part of town where ordinary Sicilians live so you feel like part of the community The apartment is up 8 flights of stairs, so those who can't climb stairs or may not want to carry their luggage might want to think again. But it is worth the climb! It is spacious and well furnished with a really cute kitchen area where we cooked. There is a comfortable living area with dining table, chairs & a sofa. The bedroom is large and there is a decent bathroom & hallway. Maurizio and Maria Rosa could not have been more welcoming. They were very helpful and displayed excellent Sicilian hospitality. They supplied us with complimentary fruit & water & tips on the local sights and were at the end of the phone when we needed to ask questions. We spoke very little Italian, Maria Rosa spoke a little English, but with the help of google translate we got along just fine. Parking is free outside the building but there is a man who looks after the cars and he expects to receive a tip. We really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it.

It is the first time we come to Sicily, my wife and I live in Whashington and we do not speak Italian, and in Palermo we were really very well received, the two owners were very helpful and understanding for our needs. They gave us many directions and advice on how to visit the city. Excellent breakfast in a bar near the B&B, very cozy and nice apartment, easy to reach. It was a great experience, bye and see you next time.

Alloggio praticamente in centro e molto confortevole. Un grazie speciale ai gestori Maurizio e Maria Rosa per l'accoglienza e i preziosi consigli che ci hanno permesso di conoscere le bellezze artistiche e culinarie della città.

Appartamento molto carino, accogliente e ben arredato. Cucina e bagno servito di tutto, pulito e attrezzato al massimo, comoda per una coppia o anche un gruppo. La signora che ci ha accolti è stata molto gentile, disponibile fin da subito via telefono. Molto consigliata.

The answer from the host:
Il nostro obbiettivo punta più alla qualità che alla quantità, sia degli ospiti che della struttura messa a loro disposizione, cercando di migliorare sempre gli standard del servizio. Grazie per averci scelti.

Dopo ben 21 anni (trasferita a Conegliano per lavoro) sono ritornata nella mia Palermo..un impatto estremamente forte ed emozionante. Consigliata da un'amica, ho alloggiato con mio marito e 2 bambini (che non conoscevano la mia città natale) in questa struttura, posizione ottima in pieno centro storico a pochi passi dalla maggior parte delle meraviglie Palermitane da visitare. Appartamentino molto carino, arredato con gusto e fantasia, curato nei minimi particolari, dotato di tutto ciò che tu puoi trovare a casa tua (perfino un cesto di frutta fresca di stagione per improvvisi languorini!) ci siamo sentiti a casa nostra sul serio, e Patrizia e Maurizio sono stati molto cortesi e disponibili nell'accoglierci. Venendo da una quotidianità del "nord" all'inizio ero un po' spiazzata ma poi i due gestori ci hanno consigliato al meglio ed indirizzato nei posti giusti, solarità e cordialità.. d'altronde a Palermo si trova molta gente accogliente e calorosa. Sicuramente torneremo a Palermo e già sappiamo dove alloggiare, senza ombra di dubbio da consigliare.

I am Maurizio end with Maria Rosa, we have looked after and furnished the Norman House down to the smallest detail to make the stay of our guests as pleasant and comfortable as possible. I am a sunny and available person, open to new friendships. I love the friendliness, transparency and respect of those in front of me; it is not about useful information, a suggestion to visit in our splendid Palermo.

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
