Mi chiamo Nella, sono di Palermo e amo la mia città e voglio farla conoscere agli altri.
Nella's home is a comfortable, spacious appartment in the lively Ballaro neighbourhood, just around the corner of the vibrant, multicultural market full if fresh foods. If you are looking for a quiet stay, this might not be the place for you, but if you enjoy feeling the pulse of the city this is a great spot. Nella was nice enough to pick us up from the station and explain to us the workings of the house. The place itself was clean, great bed, had all the necessities including airconditioning which is a big bonus even in late september heat.
Nella was very good in communication,
I did not know where the taxi would drop us off, but Nella was already outside to greet us so it made the journey there so easy.
Her and her friend also helped carry the luggage.
Everything in the apartment was explained to detail.
The apartment itself was amazing, modern, clean and spacious.
I think the photos make the rooms look smaller but actually it was perfect.
Great appartment! Everything is clean and tidy! Appartment has three air conditions what was a great help during the hot summer days.
Parking is infront of the building and there is enough place to park.
Nella is a great host, fun and kind. Location is fantastic and the house is clean and nice. We had a good stay to Nella
It was very nice and we enjoyed our stay in Nelly's appartment. The place is clean and very fine. The bedroom is big and comfortable and the kitchen is fully equiped. Nice bathroom, warm water wifi and tv - everything one would require to feel like at home.
Localization is very good:
- just few streets away is Ballaro Market with lots of fresh products (fish, seafood, meat, fruits, vegetables and many other stuff). In the evening place changes in to vibrating night life spot with street food, music and beverages (though it looks a bit scary at the first sight),
- we had no problem with finding parking place nearby and kept there car without any fees for few days,
- Nella's appartment is inside gate-secured small building complex that gives strong feeling of security and differs from surrounding buildings that we would describe as rather obscure,
- it is close to the city centre and main points of interest for tourists. So there was no need to use our car during the whole stay (what is great deal for someone not used to Italian/Palermo traffic and drivers that we find exceptional in Europe).
Nella is very good host. Though she claimed her english to be weak we had no problems with communication and would describe it as good. She is very helpful - she recommended us some of near restaurants and beach near Palermo.
We were very pleased.
Great apartment in a wonderful area. Close to all of the main attractions of the city. Nella was so great and helpful from the moment we made the reservation until the moment we arrived at our next stop. Will definitely come back again!
A friend of Nella welcomed us (thanks for being so patient, as our GPS got a little lost in the small streets of the old center) and showed us the flat.
It is a really nice flat in a lively area, very convenient to discover Palermo by foot (very close to Ballaro Market). The living room is sunny and light and so very pleasant to stay, the room nice, Wifi works well, so everything was more than fine!
As we were travelling by car through Sicily, we were happy to find each time a place for the car directly in front of the flat.
We had a really good time and recommend this flat.
Appartement agréable, bien équipé et décoré.
Hôte gentille qui nous a accueilli a la gare en voiture.
Point négatif : ville très sale, bruyante et mal fréquentée.
I am very sorry that there is not like Palermo, there are some flaws but there are many advantages is rich in art and culture, good food, sea, sun and the people friendly and helpful.
Nella's home is a very clean and comfortable apartment. The beds are great, the kitchen is fully equipped. For us as a family of three it was even a little over sized and a nice retreat from the heat of the city. Nella was willing to pick us up from the train station, but we walked (20 minutes). She showed us around and had bought us some grapes, which was a lovely gesture. The neighborhood is not our favorite in Palermo During the night we were a bit uncomfortable walking through the dirty, dark and narrow streets. However the apartment itself felt really safe. During the day the area feels a lot better and is great for shopping in the Balaro market and having great street food. The apartment is close to the Capella Palatina and a 25 minute walk from other high lights.
First of all, Nella is great host. She picked us up from the bus station, and took us to the apartment. Nella was very helpful and flexible with check in and check out timing. The apartment is beautiful: spacious (exactly same as in pictures), clean, comfy, situated in very interesting part of Palermo. It's in a low-income neighborhood, but full of interesting details and cultures. Apartment is in a good position, we went everywhere by foot. Thank you Nella, for having great six days in Palermo!
Emma and his friends are very nice and polite people.
They left the house in perfect conditions.
Absolutely recommended guests!
