Great location near the beach and restaurants
Posted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels
The B&B is right off Piazza Mondello and is very near both free and private beaches and restaurants. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable and we had a private balcony. We had an electric tea kettle and small kitchen. They did not replace the instant coffee we used on the first day, but we probably could have asked for more. Breakfast in the lobby was extensive and included both sweet and savory items. On request, they also provided us with beach towels (in a beach bag), an umbrella, and chairs. We paid to take the shuttle to the airport when we were leaving. It was very convenient although it took closer to 20 to 30 minutes than the 10 minutes we were told. The only service I would not recommend is the laundry service. They charge per piece of clothing and gave us back our clothes nicely folded. However, they washed our whites with dark denim and now all our white clothes have a blue tint. Additionally, I forgot to ask that they not add perfume (they do that in Italy) and our clothes came back with a very strong perfume smell that hasn't come out after a second washing. Also, be aware that they don’t accept credit cards. Additionally, especially if you are coming from Palermo by bus, make sure to print out a map of the area and find an image of Piazza Mondello. Bus drivers do not announce stops and we got off at the wrong piazza and had to walk quite a ways. In sum, I would definitely consider staying here again.
