This is a very different and interesting B&B. Renovated 600 year old church with many items preserved within the property. Our junior suite with balcony was perfect for us. Always nice to have a little extra room especially with the very hot weather to siesta in the afternoon. The property is in a neighborhood so there was street noise at all hours, it was very loud at times with fireworks around midnight and motor bikes constantly zooming up and down. But you certainly get a feel for day to day life in Palermo. The breakfast was very good, nice fresh fruit, wonderful pastries and unlimited cappuccino and espresso. Alessandro is an amazing host and even gifted us each a tile from this very beautiful structure. We would highly recommend if you want an authentic experience.
