Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Porta Carolina is located at the border of the old town close to the botanic garden, about 15 minutes walk from the main train- and busstation. Entering the building brings you into the courtyard. The rooms are on the 1st floor (2nd floor for US-travellers) and have a private bathroom. The rooms are very clean, comfortable although not very big. Guests can use the shared kitchen with all necessities including coffee, tea and bottled water. Breakfast is served on the groundfloor, freshly made omelet, fresh bread and excellent coffee. Guests can use the pool, not very big but good to refresh. All in all we enjoyed our 4 day-stay.

Ho soggiornato in questo B&B durante il periodo invernale. I riscaldamenti non funzionanti erano sostituiti dal condizionatore che doveva riscaldare anche il bagno. Risultato? Freddissimo. La camera era arredata anche in modo piacevole ma l’umidità e il freddo hanno reso il mio soggiorno sgradevole. Inoltre il bagno era piccolo e con un’unico sapone spray scadente. Non vale la tariffa richiesta.

Booked bed and breakfast but when we arrived we were told that there would be no breakfast because of 'technical issues'. There was no mention of any refund to cover this however so we found ourselves paying for something that we didn't receive. The room was clean and neat, however it was quite dark and in that regard not at all like the pictures on the web. Also, the shuttered door leading on to the balcony was closed permanently so that the apartment remained dark, dull and heavy and without a flow of air. The neighbourhood we found a little confronting with waste management in Palermo being something of an issue. All in all our stay was reasonable but not something that I would recommend or be returning to. Three to three and a half stars or sround 6.8 to 7.2 out of 10 would be my realistic appraisal.

Wir haben wunderbare Tage im Porta Carolina verbracht! Wir hatten das 3-Bettzimmer, schön mit antken Möbeln eingerichtet, passend zur Stuckdecke. Man fühlte sich wie in einem Palazzo. Vom Balkon aus hat man einen wunderbaren Einblick in den sizilianischen Alltag, die Nachbarin von gegenüber hat mir jeden Morgen fröhlich zugewunken. Die Strasse ist eine Einbahnstrasse, nachts nicht stark befahren, ab und zu jault ein Moped ohne Auspuff auf. Das Badezimmer ist neu mit einer Duschsäule mit Massage und Radio. Flauschige Handtücher, hochwertiges Toilettenpapier und geräumig. Das Bett war sehr gut, wir haben sehr gut geschlafen, die Bettwäsche edel, die Matratze sehr gut. Wir hatten jetzt im Oktober sogar eine leichte Daunendecke. Die Klimaanlage, ebenso das Wlan haben perfekt funktioniert. Obwohl als bed and breakfast betitelt, was für Italien an sich schon ein Widerspruch ist, gibt es kein Frühstück. Ist aber auch bei der Buchung schon erwähnt. Dafür gibt es zwei Häuser weiter eine wunderbare Pasticcheria, man sieht in die Backstube und alles schmeckt zum Niederknien. Es gibt auch eine kleine Auswhl an Lebensmittel für den täglichen Bedarf. Auf der via Lincoln gibt es links die Touring bar mit dem besten Cappuchino und süße und pikante Teile, alles bestens. Die andere Bar rechts auf der Via Lincoln ist nicht so gut und teurer. In der Unterkunft gibt es eine komplette Küche mit schöner Sitzgelegenheit und Kühlschrank. Dort kann man sich auch einen Espresso kochen. Nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt hält der kostenlose Bus, der täglich von 6.30 - 21 Uhr als Circle Line durch die Altstadt fährt ( Navette). Zum Hauptbahnhof geht man keine 10 Minuten, an der Hauptstrasse hält aber auch ein Bus,der dorthin fährt. Die naheliegendste Sehenswürdigkeit ist der bot. Garten und nebenan der Park der Villa Guilia, beides sehr sehenswert! Alfonso war sehr hilfsbereit und über whatsapp immer zu erreichen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden wieder hier übernachten.

Porta Carolina is a delightful but inexpensive place to stay in Kalsa in what was the old Arabic part of Palermo. It's in easy walking distance to the central train and bus station, the fascinating markets and the attractions of the old town of Palermo. It's 7 minutes walk from the free bus that takes you around the town to the main attractions and 5 minutes to walk to the ocean front. Food options are everywhere - including the fantastic Bar Touring ( amazing arancini )just meters away. The bathroom is contemporary and the room Classic in what seems to be an old palazzo. It's very good value and the staff are really helpful. It was hard to leave.
