It is centrally located, but is difficult to find, person we dealt with via email spoke English but when we arrived we were greeted by a nice lady, but she didn't speak any English, so we were unable to communicate at all; very dark and stuffy room, no screens on windows, lots of mosquitoes, no privacy. We ended up leaving...

Nice hotel, close to city center and transport. Airport Express right outside the front door. Good breakfast with free choice of coffee, and some 'real food' like ham and selection of cheese together with the mamelades. Very firendly staff.

my wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at start of our Sicily trip. Before our stay the owner Rosi was very helpful giving us directions to the B&B as i had read that it is hard to find so we had no problems walking to it from the train station which was only 10 minutes away. Ai Cartari...

Initially difficult to find as not advertised as a B&B on the outside of the building, we were just greeting by a locked door and a choice of 5 or 6 doorbells, none of which say the owner's name. Once we gained access we were amazed at how spacious the building was inside. The location was superb, right on the...

The Ai Cartari B&B is such a beautiful place. Rosi was the kindest host, providing me with good information and ideas for my visit to Sicily and an absolutely fantastic breakfast every morning. The place is wonderful - made me feel like I was staying in a hidden castle (but it's actually an old factory); very atmospheric. Highly recommended!

Ai Cartari is brilliantly located, very spacious, charming, and good value. Rosi put on the most incredible spread for breakfast each morning; the table was groaning! Our favourite restaurant, Antica Foccaceria, is just around the corner, and all the sights are in walking distance. A terrific B&B!

This B&B has a lot of charm and character. The location is great. The owner is lovely and provided an amazing breakfast. She even made us home-made banana bread one morning. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Palermo.

Very convenient. The room (suite) was quite nice, roomy, and quiet. The signora was helpful and recommended an osteria close by that offered very fine regional cuisine. She arranged for a taxi very early in the morning to get us to the airport. In general, I have no reason to return to Palermo except when flying in and out, but...

Ai Cartari B&B is a wonderful place to stay and discover Palermo and neighboring areas, such as the cathedral of Monreale. As a party of four, we found the B&B comfortable, centrally located, and well worth recommending to others. The decor of the house was wonderfully eclectic and full of antiques. Our "room" was actually two rooms -- one with...

This is an outstanding place to stay: central, yet quiet; comfortable and roomy. Superb personal, yet discreet attention from Rosalie who is happy to share her knowledge and opinions of the city. Great breakfasts; especially enjoyed the homemade pannacotta, and the jams. Highly recommended.
