When you step through the great, wooden doors from the bustling street into the interior court, you enter a peaceful sanctuary in a 200 year old, newly restored and renovated interior that is B&B Carella. The renovation is perfectly done, creating a colorful, sun-lit modern, living space with state of the art bathrooms and kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and ample space, while still preserving the original stone and wood beam construction, dating at least to the early 19th century. Federica, the proprietress, and her partners have done such a fabulous job restoring this beautiful, historic building. Everything was comfortable, quiet, relaxing and peaceful. The breakfast was fabulous -- an array of Sicilian delicacies and pastries, fresh fruit juice and excellent coffee. The company and conversation was fabulous. I would recommend B&B Carella and would love to go back myself. Fedrica and Marco are the most gracious, friendly hosts. This is one of the most memorable places we stayed in Italy during our two-week travels.

Room Tip: I had the blue room, which was beautiful, comfortable -- I've seen several of the rooms, each on...

I am very satisfy for what I got - the location is more than perfect, close to the bus stop from/to the airport shuttle and hop on/hop off bus. Very nice and safe area, good for woman solo traveler. The breakfast is good and tasty. My room was nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable.
I highly recommend to all visiters to Palermo, who would like to feel at home far from their own home.

I spent an entire week at B&B Carella ,and I would comfortably spend a month there. Extremely great location , close to bus, train and airport. 5 minute walk to Teatro Massimo - 10 min walk to catch the bus to Mondello beach.
What makes this B&B special is how you are made to feel when you are there.
Federica and Marco start your day off with a very nice breakfast and if you are lucky you can get a chance to hear Federica sing. They are warm and welcoming and you feel like you are part of their circle of friends and they treat you accordingly.
The room is fairly large, very clean and very comfortable with excellent Air Conditioning. The cost is also very kind to your wallet and extremely well worth it ..STAY HERE if you visit Palermo.
