Salvatore was there waiting for us and gave us a complete overview of everything to see and do in the neighborhood. The apt. was spotless and well equipped with even coffee, milk, and pastries for our breakfasts.
What a delightful experience! Photos do not do justice to the beauty of this exquisitely restored apartment in a 1500s noble residence, fully equipped and perfectly located. The host, Mr. Abramo, is a gentleman of aristocratic manners, offering exquisite hospitality. Truly a gem!
Great place, great host, very convenient location...
The most beautiful room in Sicily.
I stayed for 4 days and loved to wake up here. Its in a great location and is secure and luxurious while in the middle of the culture and centre of Palermo. The apartment was clean and incredibly comfortable and had everything you needed- including excellent biscotti. Salvatore was very helpful and lovely. Francesca his housekeeper was great with communication and gave me excellent advice for my time in palermo. The apartment is tastefully decorated and my stay in Palermo was fantastic because of such beautiful accommodation.
The apartment is located in the middle of the historic center, an ideal location to visit Palermo!!
We were warmly welcomed by Salvatore and Francesca, waiting for us at the entrance! Because Salvatore's English isn't that good, Francesca explained everything to us, showed us around in the apartment and told us about the most interesting places to visit in Palermo. The kitchen was well equipped, all the basics were there. They even left some water, milk, cookies, croissants, jam etc for breakfast.
We stayed there with our little boy (2years old). A baby cot was no problem. The apartment has 1 bedroom so our boy could sleep in the evening while we could sit in the living area. The only thing we missed is a sort of balcony to sit outside int he evening... but I guess you can't have it all!! :-)
The beauty of the flat is equivalent to a 5 star hotel – much more impressive than in photos, and perfectly neat. You feel that you actually live in a palace, with the high ceilings and antique furniture.
Moreover, the hosts are very hospitable and nice people. They welcomed us with a traditional Italian Easter cake which was absolutely delicious.
The location is perfect – a short walking distance to all major attractions.
Can’t recommend enough –this place has all a tourist in Palermo needs (and even more). The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and respond very promptly.
Salvatore and his assistant Francesca were wonderful. They were so lovely. First Salvatore assisted us with parking our car then once in his beautiful apartment gave us a lot of information about Palermo. The apartment is equivalent to 4+ hotel. The photo's don't to it justice. It is so much better than we could have hoped for. It is spacious, spotlessly clean and very safe. We were a family of three. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for making our vacation a memorable one.
We had an amazing time at the Antiche Dimore the Sicilia, the flat is absolutely amazing, with exceptionally high ceiling, amazing paintings dating back to the ‘600, antique furniture and amazing large space, the property was kept to a 5 star level with everything you might need for a comfortable stay.
The property is also in an amazing location just 5 mins walk to all main tourist attractions, 5 mins walk to Massimo and to the "4 canti" and to the main shopping area.
Salvatore and his wife were very sweet, friendly and very (very!) helpful and made us feel very welcome. There were lovely treats when we got there to welcome us and they were so helpful in so many ways that I cannot name them all here or I would exceed my word limit!!!.
We had an amazing (amazing!) time and a great start of the New Year there and we will definitely go back, it was really nice to return each night to such a warm inviting and home. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone that wants to enjoy Palermo in a great home.
Très bon séjour, en plein coeur de Palermes.
Seul "bémol" : le bruit le week end !
Prévoyez des boules quies et tout ira bien.
You enter into a vast antique courtyard through a deceptive door, up some broad stone steps and into a little piece of history. Do not book this apartment if you want "mod-cons" such as wi-fi, even though it has a perfectly equipped kitchen, a TV and a lovely bathroom. Do book it if you want to be nestled right in the heart of all things Palermo, between the main markets with most major sites a short walk away. This is a 1 bedroom flat with a sofa bed in the hallway, not a 2 bedroom flat as I'd expected, but that didn't matter . The host Salvatore was absolutely charming and more than helpful, even taking time off work to let a late arriving friend into the house while I was out. Would stay here again and get others to do the same.
