We spent 4 days @ this outstanding B& B. Alessandro & his staff were there for all our needs. Our bed was great. Shower although small was adequate & water was nice & hot. Noise was not a problem. Air was there when we needed it. Their breakfast is super.

My husband and I just got back from Palermo. We stayed at Porta di Castro and I couldn't recommend it enough. Right in the centre of the old town, the location is perfect to explore the city. I have to confess that the first impression of the area wasn't great but there was no reason for that! Located in a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of September in the apartment at the very top of the building. I have to confess to being a little concerned when our taxi drew up outside Porta di Castro as there are no pictures of the outside .. and it is located in one of Palermo's narrow streets. However, as... More

We stayed here for just one night but were very impressed with the quirky nature of the hotel and fabulous hospitality. The hotel is in a small narrow street but the taxi driver took us straight there. The welcome was great, we were given a 3 roomed apartment for two couples. It was up quite a few stairs but the...

This may not be a five star hotel, but what I will tell you is that this has got to be the best service I've ever received! We are back in NY after an incredible 17 days abroad and our experience at this B&B will always stay with us. Allessandro was simply incredible. His job, his mission and his satisfaction... More

I stayed at Porta Di Castro for 3 days at the beginning of September. I cannot say enough about the owner, the staff and the facilities. Firstly, the B&B is perfectly located to get to the sites and around Palermo in general. I walked for up to 5 hrs everyday through the many winding hidden streets and when I saw... More

My husband and I along with our two children arrived at B&B Porta di Castro on the last two days of our Sicilian vacation. The owner Alessandro and his manager, also named Alessandro, were both at the reception when we arrived. The place was beautifully renovated blending old with modern. We were immediately checked in, given a glass of orange... More

Our whole experience was amazing. They could not have been more friendly, helpful or good looking! the breakfast was a feast fit for royalty and served with a smile. The B &B itself is clean and decorated with flair! I would definitely go back anytime.

Our family stayed overnight here on our way to meet our boat charter to tour the Aeolian Islands. What a surprise to find the most accommodating host at this B&B. From the moment we arrived (somewhat exhausted from our overnight flight from NYC to Palermo) we felt welcomed and pampered by the proprietor (Alessandro) and his staff. From great recommendations...

This is without an exaggeration and without a doubt the best B&B I have ever stayed in. STAY HERE. If it is full, change your tickets so you can stay here. The building cleverly mixes the original features with the modern and new. The rooms are decent size, the shower - powerful, the wifi fast and air con functioning perfectly,... More
