My name is Enrico. I am a retired engineer. Upon retiring, together with my wife Valeria we bought and refurbished some apartments in a nice building in the centre of my city. My wife Valeria took great pride in decorating and furnishing the apartments up to a very high standard. I must say I was amazed with the result. We wanted people to come to love Palermo as we do, and we trust you will feel home here.
Enrico & Valeria purchased this apartment in 2000
We love meeting new people from all over the world and introducing them to the beauties of our own city. Most of all, our goal is to make people feeling truly at home.
This is the reason of the low prices we ask. When I started I did not mean to 'set up a business' with these apartments: I am retired, I did not want a new business, only to fulfill a dream. Which was to encourage people to explore Palermo and fall in love with our gorgeous city, without having to spend a lot of money or sleep in cheap, ugly and remote places. Or, worse of all, fall into some 'trap' - things looking great on paper but actually dreadful in reality. Palermo is stunning, but to enjoy it you must feel like home - possibly without spending much.
Located 5 minutes walk from Politeama Theatre, the very heart of Palermo, this is truly a gem in the heart of the city. Featuring 10 fully refurbished, modern apartments with all the amenities you need, we are sure you will be delighted from the first moment of your stay!

Immerse yourself in the local atmosphere, and we are sure that our city will charm you with its many boutiques, quaint cafes that make espresso to write home about, and restaurants that will make you want to return again and again -- all within a short walk from your doorstep!
Whether you're visiting Palermo for business or pleasure, our luxurious apartments are the ideal place to rest your head at the end of the day - though you may like them so much you'll not want to go out!

The apartment in the building run by Mr. Rossi was spacious and comfortable. The elevator was a welcome sight since our bags were heavy and the kitchen area, though only equipped with the basics, was also appreciated for a change from eating out all the time. The immediate neighborhood was a bit rough (mostly uncollected garbage on the streets) though there was a nice bar across the street and a produce vendor and bakery just a couple of blocks away. We soon figured our our way to the Politeama Theater area, a hive of activity and stores of all kinds. We were grateful for the assistance that Mr. Rossi's office gave us on a couple of occasions and also grateful for the moderate cost of the apartment.
Palermo is a bit chaotic, but the apartment is clean and fitted well my family and I. The owner is very friendly and gave us lots of tips. It was ease to park the car on the street at night.
The location of the apartment was excellent. It was close to the ferry where we arrived from Salerno. We walked from the ferry to the apartment which was just minutes away. We passed the Avis rent a car where we had booked our car. The local bus transportation was also only minutes away. The area looks a little rough around the edges but is very safe and friendly. We felt perfectly safe and the natives were very helpful when we needed directions or where the best place to go for dining. The apartment was very nice and Mr. Rossi, the owner, was very charming and hospitable. I would definitely stay there again!
I enthusiastically endorse all the 5-star reviews. Mr. Rossi owns several apartments in this building in the heart of the city, and when we were not perfectly comfortable in the place we had reserved he happily changed us to something super-perfect. Mr.Rossi is extremely helpfui, kind and courteous: his prices are totally reasonable and the accomodations are spacious and confortable -- and totally quiet. When I go back to Palermo I will absolutely stay with Mr. Rossi. Long may he wave! (BTW, the neighborhood is wonderful: a superb market around the corner, a lively, urban street scene, GREAT street food, fabby little local bars, absolutely w/o tourists: if you want to see the real Palermo, you can't do better than this place. We spent 3 weeks touring Sicily: and although this was not our most elegant accomodation, it was certainly the most personal, the most sympatheque -and by far the best value for the price.. Absolutely 5 Stars.
We enjoyed our "little nest" to come home to after our days of sightseeing. While it is not immediately in the core of the city, it worked to our advantage in that it was very quiet at night. It was no more than a 10 minute walk to the center of town. Perfect for our three day stay in Palermo.
I am officially in love with this apartment. Just a dream! My fiancee was very happy too, we decided to come back here for our honeymoon next year!
What to say more? Well:
1. owner: very nice and helpful.
2. Apartment: super! exquisitely elegant, comfortable and romantic!
3. location: perfect: very central, just behind Politeama theatre, right in the heart of palermo.
I am just looking forward to coming back there... wow!
