Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I gladly recommend Terrace Ballaro. The location is great and lively (the bars nearby are loud, but with the windows closed it is not an issue). The apartment is nicer than the photos and well appointed with anything you might need. Contact Frank if you have any issues - he was very quick to respond to the one problem we encountered (wifi).

  • Franco's apartment is really great, very spacious, with a bright sunny terrace that looks on to Ballaro market. It is clean and thankfully the air conditioning is very effective for the hot Palermo weather. Franco is a lovely host and came and meet us at the train station. Even though the market can be noisy the double glazed door blocks out all the noise so you can sleep soundly. Highly recommend!

    Thanks for the nice words of appreciation for our home and for the solution that we used to make our home comfortable. We were glad to have hosted you and wish you many trips around the world (sometimes even back in Sicily is so beautiful)

  • Franco and his family were great hosts, Franco picked us at the train station and even helped us out in the market the next morning, picking up a local vegetarian speciality for my wife.
    The apartment is clean and spacious, it is located near the Cathedral and Palazzo Reale. The Ballaro market is nice and shopping there is great fun.

    As others mentioned, the neighbourhood is noisy, but this did not bother us in the slightest. It's also worth mentioning that Franco installed double glazed doors on our 6th day and we noticed far less noise that evening. We stayed for 1 week and found it the perfect base to visit everything in Palermo and beyond as we also went to Cefalu and Mondello.

    Thoroughly recommended.

  • Very nice welcoming host (Francesco picked us at the station).
    The flat is clean, spacious, located near the Cathedral and Palazzo Reale. The Ballaro market is nice to buy fresh local products. But the neighbourhood is very noisy, especially the bar (we were aware of this before coming), so I recommend it for short stays.

    Response from Francesco:

    In recent times the square near the house became a meeting point for young people. However, we have now taken steps to make the silent house, assembling new soundproof windows and we have solved the problem. In addition, the Mayor has issued an order to decrease the sound volume of the pub.

  • The appartment itself was nice, clean and spacious. Franko picked us up the the bus station. The only disadvantage was the noise of the bar under the appartment. This is only om friday and saturday but that's a pitty when you want to relaxe. People are friendly and the neighbourhood was nice and lively

    Response from Francesco:

    I thank Frans for the words used and for its tolerance. Indeed, when they arrived Frans and his partner, in the bar of the square was the new inauguration and it was very noisy, I have suggested, the next day, Frans possible chance of moving to a another house about 300 meters away , very quiet, but Frans has shown me the elements as to stay there. We informed the police who intervened and now the noise is under control. us, however, we proceeded to order new frames of the windows soundproof type, which will be mounted this week, to improve the quality of the house and to make it more comfortable.

  • La casa è accogliente e molto pulita. Posta in uno dei quartieri più caratteristici di Palermo. Il mercato di Ballarò è un posto unico dove comprare del buon cibo e incontrare persone interessanti. La terrazza è ottima per cenare o fare colazione sotto il bel sole di Sicilia. Francesco e sua moglie sono stati molto gentili e disponibili.

  • Because there was a party on in the street, Francesco picked us up from the train station. He had everything ready, the apartment was lovely and though some people complained about the noise from downstairs, we instead went down and joined the people at the market then kicked back on the enormous balcony and enjoyed the band.

    Response from Francesco:

    Thanks for the kind words and for your understanding. the evening of their arrival the headquarters was triggered by the party for the promotion of the Palermo football and for a new pub. We are pleased that the magical atmosphere of the market and the neighborhood has fascinated you.

  • Francesco met us at the train station and gave us some great tips about where to eat on the walk to the apartment. It's in the very lively Ballaro neighborhood which means great people watching and excellent food but also very loud nights so bring your ear plugs. A fun place to stay if you don't mind the nightlife. We still slept well.
