We had three nights at the B&B Palermo Art when we arrived in Sicily plus one on our return from exploring the island and by the end it felt as if we had been staying with family. Silvia, the owner, is warm, willing and charming and speaks English well enough to be able to help with every question and request. The B&B is on the first floor of a grand old building (with a fabulous early 20th century lift if needed) right in the centre of the old town just off the Via Roma. Our room was beautifully furnished in traditional style and had a much-needed balcony as the temperature was in the high 20's throughout. Palermo is an incredibly noisy city and we did overlook the Via S. Spinuzza, where there are many, many loud bars and restaurants that stay open into the early hours but even so we managed to sleep. That said, for exploring, the B&B Palermo Art is in an excellent location with the Teatro Massimo a few minutes stroll away. Only one small negative... the shower door in our particular ensuite bathroom was on the rickety-side. Otherwise, 'perfetto.'
