A stunning palazzo with great marble stairs. Vittoria and Francesco, the owners, are fantastic. They do not speak English so be prepared to a lot of body language and Google translate but it is adorable. The room was spacious and very clean with charming decorative pieces. We had breakfast in the terrace with other quests and I can say it...

We stayed for three nights - the hospitality was fantastic and the location is so close to everything. Vittoria and Francesco are very welcoming and made us feel like part of the family. I would thoroughly recommend a trip to this little gem in a beautiful city. Make sure you enjoy a glass of vino on the terrace - it's...

We arrived after getting lost in the city. After a climb up lovely red marble stairs, we arrived at the B&B. Sensational. Our hosts were very attentive, the room was comfortable and the breakfast on the roof terrace at a shared table was delicious and satisfying. it was close to good restaurants and bars and all the sights.

Delightful owners, but not for average tourists. If you want real aristocrats go there. But you have to climb up 5 storeys... The palazzo is in ruins, so not for the faint hearted or legged. The street us filthy, but the owners are wonderful. A bit expensive, but what can I say? If you want 5 star don't stay there,...

This B & B is located in a very old building some of which is a museum. In the B & B there are suits of armour and weapon collections. The owners and their staff are lovely and breakfast on the roof terrace is a lovely experience. The room suffered a bit from being several hundred years old but the...

I've never stayed in such a grand and charming B&B. The owners and staff were the friendliest and most helpful ever. The little touches, like cake and coffee when we arrived, the location, the genuinely unique decor and beautiful atmosphere made our time in Palermo very special. Highly, highly recommended.

We spent 3 days staying in the Torre on a B&B basis. It was amazingly atmospheric, staying in an ancient palazzo and really felt like one was experiencing the heart of Palermo. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, really hospitable. Breakfast was huge and varied and served on a lovely rooftop terrace. The palazzo is right...

This B&B is located in downtown Palermo and is within walking distance of all the main attractions and is less than a mile from the main train station.We decided to walk because the distance appeared to be so short. After about 1 1/2 hours of walking, dragging our suitcases and asking many people who don't speak any english, we finally...

Two friends and I spent a week at Torre dei Fedorico over New Year's Eve 2014. We were all overwhelmed by the splendid art and architecture of Palermo, and the icing on the cake was our stay at this B&B.

We stayed for 3 nights at Conte Federico B&B in July 2014. It is located in the old center of Palermo, a little difficult to find initially by car, especially because of the one way streets but we found that the access is in fact very easy from Corso Vittorio Emanuele (main street of the old center). As I said...
