5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This very interesting and artsy apartment still had a touch of home and felt comfortable. Paola had twisted her ankle just hours before our arrival, but still made sure we were well taken care of and was helpful and friendly. The location is great, easily within walking distance of the bus/train station as well as the major sites in Palermo. Great place to stay. We would stay here again.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Convenient area in historic district. Third floor walk-up, no elevator. Elegant large rooms. Host was pleasant but distracted so not as much help finding local info. Breakfast was slim by B&B standards- bread, jam, coffee. Boiled eggs were provided on request.
