About the property

The Residence Abside is located in one of the oldest areas of the historical center of Palermo, a few meters from the majestic Teatro Massimo and the Quattro Canti.

This recently renovated residence is near the arch of the apse survivor of a church built in the sixteenth century, by the hands of the workers of the butchers, which was destroyed in 1943 by bombing in the Second World War, it remains just a portal reused for the Church of Santa Chiara. In the subsurface of the flowing streams and aqueducts of the old Arab city ending at the sea, you will experience the smells of the classic Sicilian cuisine, a neighborhood full of colors, sounds and lived authentically ethnic. A piece of history unfolds in the streets that lead to this building convenient to reach, provided with new and comfortable apartments, ideal for families visiting the Sicilian capital.

Just to sleep

  • 3 of 5

The owner Gaetano, is very nice and helpful. The apartment is in a good location, near restaurants and markets. We were suppose to get a two bedroom apartment, but it was only a large studio with one bed and pull out sofa bed, the wifi, never worked, and there was a bad odor in the apartment. iIf you're looking for a place to just sleep and bath; it's a great place for your money.

ampio e comodo

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo riservato l'appartamento soltanto per questione di prossimità al luogo di lavoro affidatoci da un cliente (multinazionale), si è comunque rivelato gradevole anche per visitare la città nelle poche ore libere..a piedi si arriva quattro siamo stati comodi!

Très déçus par cet appartement

  • 2 of 5

Malgré la gentillesse du propriétaire nous avons été déçus par cet appartement.

En effet, nous avons dû partager l'appartement avec 2 jeunes filles pendant 2 jours, ce qui n'était pas du tout prévu! On s'est retrouvé à 4 dans une chambre (on ne pouvait pas utiliser le canapé lit du séjour vu qu'il y avait d'autres occupants dans une autre chambre.

De plus l'appartement n'est pas très propre, la cuisine est très mal équipée et la salle de bain pas très privative... Mais ce qui a sauvé nos vacances c'est l'emplacement central de l'appartement!

Though we were helped at the beginning to get to the appartment (got lost in the city and the contact person was really helpful to send a friend, meet and help to get to the place), the rest was pity. The appartment was not the one we've booked and prepaid 100%. Conditions there were 3-4 times worse ( no light in the bathroom, cockroaches in shower, a bed for the third person not possible to sleep in). The "rimborso" were not given back to our account. The person didn't come as was agreed with him in the morning to take the keys and discuss the misunderstanding. His phone at this time was not available and then he just didn't answer. He sent the text message 1.5 hour later when we were already in out way. By phone person was ready to solve everything - in reality - nothing.

une maison sympa

  • 3 of 5

une maison vraiment sympa et un propriétaire arrangeant. Le seul regret c'est le manque de ventilateur dans la deuxième chambre, la chaleur est telle qu'il était impossible d'y dormir.

- Se escucha mucho el ruido de la fiesta de varios locales que están al lado del apartamento, cuesta dormir.

- La red Wifi solo llega en el balcón y no es muy buena

- El propietario enseña el apartamento a otras personas interesadas mientras tú no estás en el apartamento sin tu permiso, sin avisarte...


- Limpio

- Calefacción / Aire acondicionado

- Céntrico, buena ubiación

En nuestro viaje a Palermo tuvimos varios problemas con el propietario del apartamento ((nbside residence apartments).

1- El día que llegamos con la excusa de que en nuestro apartamento, el que habíamos reservado, había problemas por la lluvia nos llevó a otro donde alquilaba habitaciones (era una residencia, compartiendo cocina, lo cual no era lo que yo había alquilado y todo sin avisarnos). La habitación estaba sucia y el baño de la habitación averiado.

2 - Al día siguiente nos llevó al apartamento que yo había alquilado desde el principio (después de nuestras quejas). Apartamento sobre el cual he escrito las ventajas y desventajas.

3 - Un día llegó con otra persona al apartamento el "dueño o representarse de la agencia que alquila los apartamentos" para enseñándoselo...y resulta que lo hacía siempre que quería cuando nosotras no estábamos en el apartamento sin avisar ni nada!!

4 - Un día, el penúltimo antes de irnos, nos encontramos al volver a la tarde-noche, la puerta de nuestro apartamento abierta!! No faltaba nada dentro pero estaba abierta y la explicación del señor fue que pudo haber sido la de la limpieza buscando un cojín pero que Palermo es muy segura que podíamos dormir con la puerta abierta...

Vamos que en el apartamento en el que esteis puede entrar cualquiera sin que lo sepais!!!!!!!!

Sinceramente no me han quedado ganas de repetir y no lo recomendaría a nadie...

Owner's Response: Words of this guest are unacceptable. I think its necessary to advice other owners about the risks to have these guests.
