Great atmosphere flat next to Ballaro market

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Palermo was wonderful, we lived in this beautiful clean flat close to the center and the main station which was a big advantage. It has all you need - air-conditioner, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom. The owners are very very nice and kind and provided useful info about the city, local food, beaches, etc. We recommend for 100%.

Owner's Response: I am gratified by this positive appreciation for us. We try to provide our guests the information they are usually not found in travel guides so that they can orient in a short time among the many activities and beautiful places to see and among the things to enjoy, according to their vacation preferences. In this case I think we succeeded! Sono gratificata da questo apprezzamento positivo nei nostri confronti. Cerchiamo di fornire ai nostri ospiti le informazioni che solitamente non si trovano nelle guide turistiche così da potersi orientare in poco tempo tra le tante attività e luoghi belli da vedere e tra le cose da gustare, in base alle loro preferenze di vacanza. In questo caso io penso che ci siamo riusciti!

Its ok

  • 3 of 5

I think the place in overall is ok. The host is very friendly and left us very helpful information about restaurants in Palermo. The location is near train station but its not the great neighbor hood in Palermo. We didn't spend much time at home and even left the house one night and stay in a hotel in another town. There is a traditional market near by which is great. The house ceiling is low and doesn't have much light. Also the hot water tank in the bathroom is small.

Great time in a great 2-person apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay and actually hung out at "home" a lot.

Drinking rosé wine out of a 2liter PET bottle, which we got for 4 euro at an old dude's place around the corner.

Cozy apartment, fun neighbors. Great beach nearby, and yet also a very lively city-heart. And...amazing food, everywhere you turn!

Much love to the owners for their warm welcoming feel and a painful kiss goodbye to the city that took us in, for however short..

Friendly & helpfull

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a friend in August. The hosts were friendly & helpfull even with last minute changes in plans. Thank you for the figs btw :-)

Good location, close to station, center & public transportation. A/C worked as well, which was a lifesaver for Finns in +35 to 40.
