Exceptional 10.0
This is a unique property that is a feast for the eyes. It’s A 500 year-old building that has been expertly restored to incorporate the past while having all modern conveniences. The breakfast is superb and the staff is friendly, helpful, and makes one feel as if they are part of the family. It should be classified as a boutique hotel. I give it the highest rating possible.

Unique, eclectic boutique hotel very near the historic district of Palermo with a very helpful, kind owner and staff, as well as an abundant, delicious breakfast and a friendly dog (Ciro).

Great location, helpful staff. Forget the car in Palermo as parking is a major issue.
John, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Charming surprise!
I really loved this little hotel. Don't be put off by the outside; it's really a charming place to call home. Breakfasts are unbelievable! They wait on you like you were royalty. I loved the dog in the lobby who made friends with anyone who welcomed it, but left alone those who didn't. The only reason I graded them down on comfort is that I wanted more hot water in the shower. Otherwise, it was great!
Mimmye, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Rooms Need reburbishments
The pictures are quite deceptive. The reception area was good however the rooms were quite run down. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, shaky and on the verge of breaking. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. So 10/10 for the staff.
