We had a splendid time in Palermo and a perfect stay in the B&B! The charming B&B ist located in the historical part of the city, the cathedral, the Norman palace and the central station are within walking distance. The rooms in the B&B are very beautiful and clean. The breakfast is served on the terrace where you have a stunning view over the city. Barbara and Emiliano are the perfect hosts: very cordial , always helpful and gave us good recommendations for restaurants and activities. And also the girl who was serving breakfast and the cleaning lady were very friendly and made our stay in the B&B even more enjoyable. Grazie Mille! We will recommend it to our friends and family!

We enjoyed three nights at La Terrazza Sul Centro, cannot fault it and highly recommend it.

The B&B is well located, close to Quattro Canti, making it easy to walk to all the sights. Barbara, Emiliano and team provided a very efficient, helpful and friendly service throughout our stay, providing great assistance with the car and luggage. Nothing was too much trouble and all assistance provided in a cheerful manner.

The rooms have been renovated to a good standard and are of a good size, ours was quite large and it was a delight to be able to unpack and store items in the large cupboard. The room was clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable.

Breakfast on the top floor terrace was well provided with ample selections. The view across the roof tops was stunning.

Thank you Emiliano and team, we had a great time, and highly recommend the B&B.

Perfect location, minutes from the Quatro Canti and within 15-20 minutes walk of all sites such as the cathedral and palazzo dei normanni. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice and delicious pastries and home baked cakes and we loved the wee breakfast terrace with amazing views. Barbara and Emiliano and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the 3 floor climb. Highly recommend.

Kudos to Barbara and Emiliano and their friendly staff for making our three night stay memorable. We can confirm what the other reviews say -- this lovey B&B is well-located, comfortable, a great value, and met all of our needs. Our room was spacious and clean. The terrace is lovely. Breakfast is provided with a smile. Keep in mind that you must climb up to the 3rd floor, but the view is worth it. Plus, as another reviewer stated, considering how much we enjoyed the Sicilian food, walking up the stairs was a welcome bit of extra exercise. Would absolutely return.

Just to echo other reviews. The terrace is stunning and a great place to have breakfast. Barbara and Emiliano and all their staff were very helpful and friendly. We had two separate stays with them. For the second stay we were in the annex room on the mezzanine floor. This was fine but we'd like to point out that you did get a little bit more noise from people passing by on the shared staircase. I would still heartily recommend this B&B, just a few steps away from Via Maqueda and the twin sites of Chiesa San Cataldo and Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio.
Finally - the fluffiest towels we have ever experienced.

Although the location is convenient to many sites, it is also in the heart of party central and the noise that goes with it - even with the windows shut. The 60 steps are daunting after a hard day of sightseeing. Dreaded those four flights up when we were tired. The room was fine with a small balcony overlooking a busy street. There were even multiple steps in the room. Steps to go in and steps to get from room to bathroom. Bathroom was fine, although no shelf in shower for toiletries and one built-in soap dispenser. Little shelf space so used stool to put items. Small refrigerator, but no ice or ice machine. Adequate hangers but only two shelves and no drawers. TV had no English language program. No one at desk except for check in and check out. Breakfast is on the lovely roof top terrace and was very good. But only served from 8-9:30. Room was very clean and linens were replaced every 2 days. Lots of good restaurants in the area. But you have to like stairs.

Response from Barbara Alongi, Proprietario at La Terrazza Sul Centro
Responded Dec 7, 2022
Dear guest, We are very sorry that you did not have a really good time, unfortunately the stairs disturbed you so much that you did not understand that the reception is open every day until lunchtime and in the afternoon online, we were present evry day from 8:00; that the machines that produce ice do not exist inside the rooms hotel but perhaps in bars and that breakfast is open until 10:30. Luckily holidays have a beginning and an end and you won't have to take the stairs anymore, unfortunately Palermo is too old and there are these buildings without a lift, we are so sorry. We don't think you're a grinch at all, don't even say that as a joke! Many greetings from all of us.

We have just returned from Palermo. We loved this B&B/Hotel. It is in the heart of the city. It is situated in a side street behind a huge door which opens to reveal steps leading to the B&B. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Vito on the reception desk gave us recommendations of places to visit and restaurants to eat at. Breakfast is a lovely, varied feast with a wide selection of foods, including cakes made by Barbara, the owner. Lovely to be able to eat breakfast outside with the beautiful view. Bliss. Our room looked like it had recently been renovated with aircon, comfortable bed, big shower etc. The owners are lovely. We would definitely recommend staying here- you won’t be disappointed.

Our recent stay at 'La Terrazza Sul Centro' in Palermo was really delightful. Situated in the heart of this beautiful city and just a short 10-minute walk from the station. This place offered both convenience and charm.

The highlight was undoubtedly the cozy rooftop terrace, providing stunning views of Palermo's skyline as well in the mornings as the evenings. Breakfast featured local products and delicious homemade pastries. The room, while basic, was nice, clean and had everything we needed.

The staff were all very friendly. The gentleman at the reception was very helpful, offering great tips on sightseeing and dining and assisting us with parking recommendations as well as info on where we could drive in the city and where not.

Overall, our experience exceeded expectations. Palermo is a captivating city, and I wouldn't hesitate to return to this charming B&B.

Perfect place to stay for a short trip in Palermo. The hosts were very hospitable and helpful. They both went above and beyond to make guests feel welcome. Lots of tips were provided of places to eat, things to see and where to get best granita and ice cream! Highly recommend!

We are here at the moment and are staying one night as we have travelled to Palermo for two days from our base in Cefalu.
We arrived early in the morning and the people at the hotel could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Our room was not ready but they gave us our room keys so we didn’t have to come back to check in. They also sent us a message when the room was ready. When we arrived back at the hotel our bags were in our room.
The room is exceptionally clean and comfortable. Air conditioning works well. The hotel is also well situated to sightsee with everything nearby.
As I have said, the staff were very nice.
We are glad we chose this hotel and would definitely recommend it to others.
