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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I spent 4 nights here in late June. It was terrific. A sun filled room with a view of the Teatro. Walking distance to everywhere, including the port, when I arrived back from Lipari. Bus stops to the beach and station all very close. The rooms were big and spotlessly clean. The bonus? Staff who went out of their way to provide information on shops to purchase my coffee machines and other speciality products and souvenirs. Breakfast was great,Good coffee and cannoli. Another bonus? A day room which could be used for those like me on late trains and flights. And staff still fussing to ensure that i was okay, and cool enough - I was there during the heat wave. A great end to my 5 week wandering in Sicily. Thank you.

The property is very conveniently located. It is just a bit away from the very crowded area and also a boulevard separates it from run down neighborhood. From this location it is very easy to get to the 2 important monumental areas and the markets, we even caught a festival around this place. The welcome to the b&b was good, there are few tea and coffee facilities. The room looked good and everything worked fine inside, it had funny lights for shower. Considering the sweet breakfast was not that great, we appreciated that we got a salty option, 2 cheese types and 2 salami. The communication with the property before arriving was difficult, as apparently the fee could not be charged. The building needs some refurbishment for main hallway, stairwell, interior courtyard. People were roaming around in the evening late and also some early noise in the property made us realize how bad phonic isolation is. No view from our room. Breakfast offer not that rich.

All’ ombra is ideally situated right next to Teatra Massimo which means you are central to all the major historical sites and entertainment. The B&B itself is lovely once inside , the room we had was spot on with a balcony with views to the Teatra. Breakfast is basic but enough to start you off in the morning. We organised an Airport pick up for 35 Euro thru the b&b And was there waiting for us off the plane. Bus stop to get bus to Mondello Beach is About a ten min walk bus 806 takes u there in 30 mins 1:40 Euro one way, don’t forget to validate ticket when you get on Bus (unlike me ) Palermo itself is a very vibrant city, awash with eateries and drinking establishments , all within easy walking distance from the b&b. Well worth a city break if you are thinking of it.

So first thing to point out is that a Bed & Breakfast in Palermo is not like you might find in the UK. Basically they are usually a couple of floors within an apartment building. The best way to find this building is to go to front of the Teatro Massimo then face the steps, go around the exterior wall of the theatre to the right hand side, until you are at the back right hand corner, then cross the road when you see Galloway restaurant and keep to left of restaurant until you see no. 36. Do not be put off by the dark stair way when you go inside the building, once you're in the B&B it is really beautifully restored and is very authentic. The staff are excellent and the place is spotless. I've attached photos of view from window...can't get much better than that :)

Do not be put off by the front door or the dark staircase to this bed and breakfast which is in the square next to the Massimo Theatre. Inside it is light and airy, well maintained, well decorated and impeccably clean. The room was large and en suite well fitted out. Breakfast was good and the staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Location is also good for much - most -of the great deal there is to see and do in Palermo. We would be happy to use it again.

The location of the B&B was great. The view that's shown on the website is from the dining room area. Our room didn't have a view but wasn't too bothered as it was only a short stay. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated.

Stayed two nights and both Marco and Gabriella could not have been more helpful - booking taxis to and from and suggesting restaurants according to our wants. Totally unprepossessing from the outside with a lovely antiquated lift - but super, modern and clean interior. Thoroughly recommend. Thank you!

Brand new place that was very good, very good bed, nice room with hig ceiling nice view and cool shower with mood lights. Not too noisy since on third floor but need old elevator to get there and doors must be closed on all levels or you wait as we had to. Breakfast is custom tailored to you. Be specific when you arrive as they meet you so if early, you will have to wait as we did. service very good, arranged cab at last minute. great value.

“This location which had a beautiful view from it's charming balcony was central located to many historical sites and many means of transportation throughout the area. Our accommodation were modernly sophisticated, yet filled with old world charm.We were welcomed and embraced by the manager Gabriella and Margherita who care for the BnB wholeheartedly.We may have physically left All'Ombra del Massimo but our hearts remain there.They have made Palermo a lifetime memory and desire to return to.”
