If you’re looking for a base to explore western part of Sicily, don’t go to Palermo. It’s dirty and smelly beyond comprehension, chaotic and not inspiring at all. Choose/go to Trapani instead, for example. It’s cuter, equally interesting, closer to important historical/touristic sites and some beaches, with much better restaurants, bars and night life. But, if you have to stay... More

Lovely large flat (2 of us shared the biggest apartment as we wanted seperate bedrooms) with an out-door seating area big enough to have meals (rare in central Palermo) and spacious old rooms. It is really for groups of friends who are going to enjoy being out on the town every night and only coming back to sleep in the... More

Dear Madam, thank you for your comment. We are sorry that your stay here wasn't as you expected. Just some corrections: in our apartment all furnitures and equipment are adequate in relation of the number of the guests. The table in the kitchen can be opened as a book, and four more foldable chairs are behind the kitchen's door. All... More

Nothing to say except that I don't regret my choice. Casa Teatro Massimo appartements are great places managed by 2 very nice and helpfull sisters. The flat I booked was huge, on 2 levels, very clean and handy (everything you could possibly need in the bathroom or kitchen was there). I definitly recommand this place!

The Verdi apartment is large, beautifully decorated, well equipped (incl washer), clean and quiet, with a private terrace. It is centrally located so you can walk to everything in Palermo. It has been completely renovated to modern standards. Palermo is the noisiest city in Italy so it was wonderful to find this haven of peace in the center of the... More

Great location, in the middle of everything yet quiet and calm inside - Serena was incredibly helpful and gave great recommendations and advice. We were a group of 5 girls, in the Verdi apartment, who found we had plenty of space, an outside balcony, all we needed in the kitchen to prepare dinner when we weren't heading out to amazing...

Nicoletta could not have been more helpful. We just left after 3 nights in the Mascagni apartment, which had everything we needed and was so quiet at night. It was unusually hot in Palermo but the A/C worked perfectly. The puppet theatre right up the street was great fun, and we were amazed by the conductor for Madama Butterfly. We... More

Very well located in the heart of Palermo. The room was on the first floor and didn't receive much light but it's not unusual in a crowded city like Palermo. Although in a busy street, the apartment is amazingly calm. The place is very well equipped with everything for cooking and even a washing machine. There's nothing special to say... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and we loved it. We had the Puccini appartment (2persons), more then enough space, good kitchen, and a enormous bathroom. Everything was clean and nice decorated. The location was in the center of Palermo, near some great markets (go there). We would definetly go to this place again!!

Stayed in apartment Mascagni, which was very well equipped - including a washing machine. Location was great, with most things within walking distance, including a short work to the nearby fresh food market (with everything from fresh seafood to spices to cheese).
