The apartment was great. After 3 days in Palermo, I can't think of a better location. Having a master bedroom for the parents and a separate bedroom for two teenage boys was great. having a large living room with 3 couches meant plenty of room for everybody. Had a nice balcony overlooking the main street. A pedestrian only street full of shops and restaurants. We did not use the laundry washer but it was there. I can only think of a few slightly negative things but they were not significant enough to take away a star.
We didn't cook but I did try and use the oven to reheat something. I could not get it to work. All the labels were worn away. Maybe it was me or it was not working. Host should either fix that or leave clear instructions on how to use it. But not a big deal. I just used the microwave. I am sure if I asked, he would of taken care of it. The master bed was kind of hard and not too comfortable. It could stand a new mattress. The kids beds seemed a but better. And finally, everybody likes 2 pillows. There was only 7 in the apt. So I was left out. I just used a couch pillow as my extra. But 1 more pillow would be ideal. Thats it for the negatives. Host and his wife were super nice. Gave us all kinds of restaurant tips, and sites to see recommendations. Also left us 2 large bottles of water in fridge and a bunch of local treats to enjoy. That was a really nice touch. Upstairs shower was nice. Plenty of hot water. Downstairs had a jacuzzi but we did not try it out. Nice having 2 full bathrooms. One last negative. The elevator did not work so we had lug up our bags about 3 flights and walk up and down every time. Not a big deal for us but could be for some people. I would ask if this is fixed if that is a concern. Overall, highly recommend and would love to stay again.
