Great B&B located in the old city of Palermo. The bedrooms are not very big but it's due to the location of the B&B in the historical center.

In the growing competition of B&B's opening in every conceivable space in the La Kalsa quarter of Palermo, a new standard has been set. Khalisah is new, restored, clean and more: it's stylish! It's the "W" hotel of Palermo B&B's. Greatly decorated and appointed with art books and in my room even a guitar. Also comfortable, I slept like a...
