CLEANING FEE ARE SEPARATE FROM THE TOTAL YOU PAID ON AIRBNB SITE:10 euro if you stay one or 2 nights; 20 euro from 3 to 4 nights; 30 Euro if you stay 5 nights to 7nights.
If more than 4 people cleaning fee is 30 euro even if you stay one day.
Cleaning fees are not included on the total amount and needs to be payed cash before leaving the apt. You can leave it in the room on the table or giving to me along with the keys. Thank you!
IM ECO-FRIENDLY,please collect your plastic, glass and paper separately.
As well I need to be careful on the usage of utilities since our government asks very expansive taxes and specially electricity is very very expansive.
So far I had great guests, respecting me being very happy using utilities carefully without wasting it.
There is a meter of water, gas and electricity usage that i check on the check-in and the check-out.
You have a maximum of 10 scatti per day of electricity! It’s a lot believe me, so i count them just to avoid extra and unnecessary usage when out of the apt forgetting air condition ON or boilers.
Boiler can be left ON just during the night time and OFF before 7 AM. Couple hours ON from 8PM to 10PM or 11PM is totally fine and enough. Thank-you guys for this!! ;-)
You can use laundry with a fee of Euro 5 p/laundry (Short Cycle 30 minutes);long cycle is 10 euro. Ask me for details.
- please, collect and take care of your own garbage bringing it out of the apt.
-No smoking indoor, feel free to smoke in the terrace

- If you use it, please clean it.
- If you do lose or do not return house keys, you pay Euro 100 for the main key and 20Euro for each small key.
- Towels and linens are provided. Please leave them in the room so i can collect for washing. No need to take bed sheets away from the bed.
First day of your arrival you'll find a bottle of water (or more than one!) and toilet paper, after that you need to provide for your self if is a longer stay.
Little more here, but important.
GLASS: if you break a glass i dont care, however please let me know there is broken glass in the floor because i walk bare foot.
HAIR: if you collect your hair and trow in the garbage will be helpful so i don't need to call to repair sink :-(
SAND: please make sure you don't bring sand in the house from the beach. the shower and sink get clogged by that :-(
Any broken item will be deducted from your deposit. No exception (I don't care about glasses though, i do care about my cups ;-))
Be safe in Palermo: drivers are not the best in the world and keep an eye of your pockets and purse for the thieves .
Have fun in Palermo! ENJOY LIFE!
Lydia was an exceptional host. I was made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived. She knows Palermo well and had many good recommendations of what to do.
The flat was great, with a lovely roof terrace to enjoy the sun (in late November!). The room was clean and tidy, with a very comfy bed so I had no problems sleeping at night. A great location to base a trip to Palermo from, everything was within a comfortable walking distance. Also, being right next to the metro meant that getting to and from the airport was so easy.
Lydia is a friendly host, and the room is excellent value for money. I would definitely return.
Lydia's place was amazing - if you are going to stay in Palermo, there is no other spot to choose but hers! Her communication from the beginning was fantastic. Arriving from the train station (I came from the airport) was easy - she's not even a 2 minute walk away. She is also perfectly located for all the sites of the historical city and any buses you may need to visit other towns. The bedroom is spacious, the bed is extremely comfortable (and huge!), the bathroom is big, and she makes you feel like the apartment is yours. Her terrace has terrific views of the city. Every morning she asked my plan and made sure I knew where to go (map included). Her company was much appreciated at night (however, she let's you do your own thing if you want). Words cannot describe the experience you will have staying with Lydia!
Ho passato 4 giorni meravigliosi a Palermo, Lydia è stata così accogliente e amichevole che il primo giorno mi ha accompagnata a visitare il mercato di Ballarò e la sera abbiamo cenato assieme. Il suo appartamento è in un punto strategico della città e questo mi ha agevolato molto nei miei spostamenti. Inoltre, inutile sottolinearlo, Palermo è davvero una città affascinante!!
Accueil efficace et serviable. Chambre spacieuse et propre. Terrasse à disposition avec belle vue sur les toits de Palerme. Parking gratuit très proche. Mitoyen au centre historique. Wifi opérationnel. 4ème étage sans ascenseur accessible même pour un retraité.
Lydia's apartment is very well located in the center of Palermo. Everything is easily accessible on foot.
The room is spacious and clean and the bed very comfortable.
The apartment is lovely, with a terrace and a beautiful view.
Lydia is a very welcoming host, she gave me tips for restaurants and advised to visit the city.
Thank you for his cappuccino, kindness, and I definitely recommend this place!
Lydia was a great host who takes the time to sit with you in the morning and provide advice on things to do, see, and experience. Even before arrival, she was incredibly responsive. Given my super late arrival, things got tricky with how to get to her place, but we worked it out! Once settled in, she was able to give simple directions and was just a phone call away should you run into any issues - in or out of the apartment. She was even able to asset me with a few phone calls since I don't speak Italian. The place itself is in a great location, nearby attractions and within walking distance of the city center of Palermo and seaside. There is a rugged beauty you likely won't find anywhere else in the world, so be open-minded and enjoy the amazing view from the terrace!!! Let yourself be immersed in the culture and language in the small streets. Don't be afraid to try the local restaurants downstairs and around the corner - they are amazing, especially the Villa San Giovanni Degli Eremiti - there's something about a traditional Sicilian restaurant out of the tourist areas that make you feel as if the trip wouldn't have been complete without it :) It was a wonderful experience and I'm very happy with my decision to stay here with (website hidden) - There isn't a lift in this building, so if you have giant luggage like I did, keep that in mind! Unless you like the workout ;-)
The apartment is a great base to see Palermo and is a beautiful place to stay. Very tidy with an incredible roof terrace, all the amenities you could want whilst on a trip. Lydia as a host was great, giving tips on where to go, what to do and the best places to eat. Highly recommended.

I love to have guests and to let them feel at home! I love to prepare food, good Italian ( sicilian) food! I'm very happy person and ill make your staying in Palermo an unforgettable experience especially because my apt has a spectacular view from the roof where you can take awesome pictures of main spots of the city! You never know what i cook and can always seat on my table having a bite of delicious food. I lived for many years in San Francisco and I had (website hidden) from all over the world and since then Im eager to continue my experience with foreigners that share different cultures. Thanks to airbnb im having the chance to do so.
