We spent 2 comfortable nights here after arriving very late at night on the boat from Salerno to Palermo (never again and strongly recommend flying rather than enduring endless queuing and then 10 hours of poor quality facilities). However, the taxi from the port took us straight to the B&B and we were warmly greeted by the young Sri Lankan...

Spent a few days in Palermo and stayed at Al Giardino Dell'Alloro. It was a very pleasant experience. Donatella and staff were exceptionally friendly. Helped us out with train and bus schedules. This place is very conveniently located between the old and new sections. If you're headed to one of the food markets for street food or to the Teatro...

The room we were given had no natural daylight (it was in the basement), the shower was broken and dirty. Despite the owner being welcoming the value for money was pretty misleading and definitely overpriced. I'm sure there must be nicer rooms but ours was definitely not one of them.

Convenient B&B around pretty floral yard, clean and well maintained. Staff very helpful. Good breakfast. Good location-everything less than ten minutes walk. Tourist bus good for orientation, at end of passage. I’m going back.

We spent a week here, and it was excellent. Donatella and her husband were kind, and really helpful when we had problems with stolen cards, and then needed a doctor. Also, it is opposite a "Free Bus" stop, very useful for sightseeing. Would happily return.

Dear Pauline, thanks for your comment, I hope that although two small problems, immediately solved, your vacation was enjoyable in our beautiful Palermo and in our home.

The location is perfect for a stay in Palermo. Our room was lovely - very clean with a balcony overlooking the peaceful courtyard. Breakfast was delicious. Staff were very nice and extremely helpful. Stay here!

Fantastic quiet corner in heart of the city. Beautiful courtyard for breakfast (weather permitting! ) and good range of food for same. Slightly unpredictable electrics in my room (bedside light not working and a kettle which worked occasionally). Bed a bit hard for my taste. And somehow booking.com gave them to understand that 2 of me was staying because I...

After spending one awful night in an apartment hotel down the road we were very happy to find this hidden gem. With very helpful and accommodating staff, this B&B was perfect for our city exploring visit. The rooms were basic but clean and modern and more than comfortable. the courtyard was small but beautiful and the breakfast more than satisfactory....

Donnatella saved my holiday! I booked elsewhere and it wasn't what we expected......fortunately after 1 night I found this historic Palacio. Donnatella and her small team made us feel as though we were staying in their family home. Such a peaceful location in the centre of a bustling historical centre. When we return to Palermo, we will come home to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the historical centre of the city, inside the quarter of the Kalsa, just opposite Villa dell’Alloro, our bed&breakfast is different from the others. We have called it "b&b&arts": in the rooms and the communal spaces you will find paintings, photographs and sculptures of contemporary Sicilian artists. You will find not only well-furnished rooms, where every colour tones in with the idea the room expresses, but also wide communal spaces and a luminous courtyard where breakfast is served in summer and where you can spend your time chatting and relaxing. All rooms are equipped with bathroom with shower inside the room, hot-cold air-conditioning, electronic key that allows access to the whole structure, safe, LED TV, wi-fi free and many other amenities. The rooms are serviced by private elevator, and overlook a quiet courtyard, where you can spend your free time. ... more   less
