Stayed at the B&B for 2 nights- Volcano room (asked for a different one us not being a couple, but if you are- it's the romantic room)
Great location! It should be noted that there is a big difference between the exterioe and the newly and tastefully renovated place, so don't be scared.
Staff very friendly and welcoming and helped us in a time of need,
Note that they speak little English.
We had a bad experience with the payment- we weren't asked how we would like to pay (it being stated clearly in the booking site- the payment is on site) and charged by credit card immediately upon arrival without us knowing. I found out by getting an email on the second day. After we had asked, the mistake was corrected although it came out I paid more because of currency differences in those days!
Room- comfortable and clean. We were promised Bathrobes as the site stated- never got them, just some small towels with holes in them.
If you like lots of light- the volcano room is not for you.
The Wi-Fi was great, breakfast OK- typical Italian.

Bottom line- There was nothing horribly wrong with the B&B, but expected more assuming the reviews and the price we paid (which to me was too high)

Room Tip: Volcano room for those who want romance and a touch of light

This was a great experience with a hotel style B&B. My daughter and I each took a separate room and both were lovely and comfortable. The staff were helpful and the contnental breakfast in the morning was good. The location,just off Via Roma was perfect for exploring the centre of the city and safe. Delicious food is nearby and we were comfortable wandering around the area at night. If you are in Palermo, stay here! Also, give Vino&Pomodoro or Gagini Restaurant a try. Two of the nicest places we have been to in Italy!

Well if you are 20 to 50 years old and in good shape and have one luggage, this is an excellent place for you to stay. (Need to climb 2 flights of stairs) Rooms are nice price is great, and its in the middle of Palermo. The family that run this B&B are Fantastic. They will serve you breakfast till 12 Noon, and will assist you in every way possible. Unfortunately for us we had 5 luggage's with a bad back and 67 years old (our last stop in Italy after 35 days) But they did call a neighbor to help with the luggage. Bottom line you can do it. Ho by the way they will change your linen and towels every 3 days unless you want to cough up 4 Euros a day to have them changed every day. (of witch we gladly paid for the service we stayed 7 days) .

The whole B&B is outstanding. It brings you to the heart of Palermo and gives you the image of how Palermo should be seen. Kindness and and hospitality, euphoria and relax. What more could you ask from a Sicilian journey?
