I recommend it especially for the tourist traveling solo or a pair who can handle close quarters. It is inexpensive and is located right near the New Gate, which is near a beautiful park and the main market (Vucciria) that has a lot of shopping and restaurants. What elevates the place was Marco. He was very friendly and helpful for someone visiting for the first time and recommended a street food place nearby that had two local-only sandwiches that have been my favorite food in all of Italy: Panino con la milza and the Panino con panelle crocchè e melenzane, a block away at Nono u Ballerino. All kidding aside, I will be trying to find a way to return to Milano (from Washington, DC) just so I can have those sandwiches again! The downside of the room is that the bathroom is cramped and is best for someone who is not tall. I am 5’8” and had a hard time seeing myself in the mirror. So if you can adjust your expectations in that one way (I was in Apt A), I think you’ll live the location as the friendliness of Marco. And don’t skip the sandwiches!

This is a sold B and B. It's clean, centrally located, and has a lot of fun decor inside. But the best thing about it is the proprietor Marco. If you don't speak Italian and can communicate in English, then this is an especially terrific spot. Marco is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and that really helps when you are navigating an area where English is uncommon. I'd highly recommend this place and I'm a very experienced traveler.

Porta nuova is perfect for a short stay in Palermo. The B&B has a personal touch, Marco (the owner/host) makes you feel more then wellcome and in the morning he prepares a lovley breakfast, in scililian style. The B&B is located right next to Palermos historic center which makes it possible for you to take nice walks to all the sights.

On arrival, we got a great impression of Marco, very informative and friendly.
We were staying at Marcos B&B for 2 days.
The place is in the center of Palermo, in walking distance to any part of old/new city you would wanner visit.
The place has AC. Amazing rooftop terrace, and laundry-service :)
I highly recommend Marcos B&B for any visit in Palermo.
Thanks for a great time, I'll be back

Great location, close to the restaurants and other important sightseeing places. The owner is very welcoming and accommodating! The B&B has air conditioning which was an important criterion to me. It also has a balcony where you can relax in the evening. The B&B is an apartment consisting of 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms, it works well to share the bathroom and the B&B is quiet and works well for young couples (as it was in our case).

B&B Porta Nuova was a great place for our trip to Palermo: central location, but still easy to access by car, with free parking lots in the streets around. A friendly, helpful host, clean rooms with shared bathrooms (separated for men and ladies), a small Italian breakfast included - and all that for an unbeatable price. Highly recommended!

Cosy b&b near the cathedral of Palermo. Rooms are nice and clean, toilet are in common but clean as well. An amazing terrace is available for all guests on the roof. The owner is very kind and helpful (he is a real Palermo citizen so he can give you suggestions where to go to eat and to visit). Prices are fare. Metro station "Orleans" is 5 minutes walk.
In conclusion: a nice base to visit Palermo and its surroundings.

It was a great pleasure staying at Marcos B&B. The place is lighteened, lovely designed, clean and suited very central. Just one minute to the most importaint sightseeings in Palermo like catedral, palazzo reale.
On the rooftop with great view obove the city is the terrasse where I had my deliciouse breakfast made by Marco.
He gives everybody the feelilng of feeling home, warm welcome and gives good tips for the city. He answers quick and even I changed my arriving time spontaneous, he was there in a minute.
I recommend to everybody this great B&B. Definitely by my next stay in Palermo I will be staying again at B&B Porta Nuova.

My stay at Porta Nuova was pleasantly nice and comfortable. It's in a great location close by Porta Nuova leading to Palermo's historical and architecturally beautiful sites. As a female solo traveller, I found the B&B and its surrounding safe. Marco, the host is very nice and very knowledgeable about the city and around. He is quite a source of good information--places to eat at or to visit. I am very satisfied and happy to have stayed at Porta Nuova.
