My first impression dragging my luggage down Via Maqueda was: what kind of place were we stayin? From the outside much of the street looks non- descript. It can be a bit hard to find, but find it we did after passing through an old car size doorway. The palazzo screams vintage elegance. Our apartment was immense, nearly the size of my house. The furnishings and decorrations reach back to a very different era of Sicilian life. And the ceilings are beautiful and rival the finest museums. We were met by Giovanni, the proud and meticulous owner of this hidden gem of a B & B. Giovanni was gracious and ever so belpful in negotiating the streets of Palermo. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom modern and the Wifi excellent. The location was in the heart of old Palermo near the Quattro Canti. Although there is parking, I don't recommend driving as Palermo is a warren of twisted alleys, tight spaces and aggressive traffic. Use public transport as it is effiicient and, along with your feet, gets you around quite nicely ( with Giovanni's excellent tips). We loved Palermo's busy street life right outside the door of the Palazzo Montevago.

We rented a two bedroom apartment at the Palazzo Montevago for two nights--would have been great for much longer. There is a kitchenette included and a dining table so this would be fine if you wanted to cook. Also a living room and large bathroom with good shower. Free wifi with good connection. Free parking in the palazzo courtyard. Elevator from courtyard to main floor but not to second floor apartment. The location is 3 blocks from the historic center.
But the wonder of the place is how beautiful and elegant it is. The main floor (apartment was up one flight) has huge, high-ceiling rooms, chandeliers, painted ceilings, fine furniture, a sun porch--guests are allowed to use these rooms as well and a continental breakfast is served in one of them.
Best of all is Giovanni. He was so helpful. We had rental car problems and he made calls for us to explain more fully than we could.
Sign outside the doorway on the street would be helpful. It is difficult to locate.

Room Tip: Ask for the two bedroom apartment.

Spent 3 nights in this historical building, it was so relaxing with great facilities.
Difficult to find, even the locals struggled , anyway we eventually found it, and it was worth the wait, central to Palermo, with parking, really comfortable accommodation, with so much historical charm

Room Tip: Be patient when trying to locate , particularly at night

Beautiful appartment in one of the main streets of Palermo. Well equipped for la ong weekend exploring Palermo. Enjoy the Italian breakfast in one of the impressive rooms and feel yourself like a king. And in case of questions the owner will help you out.

Palazzo Montevago is proof that looks can be deceiving. Despite being a little hard to find, once you've walked inside it's like stepping back in time. Beautiful rooms, ornate furniture, and the host Giovanni couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. It's only a ten minute walk from the city centre, and the apartment we stayed in was huge - more than suitable for any family, couple or friends on holiday. Thank you for such a wonderful stay - I would recommend this place to anyone!!!
