I stayed here over Easter last year, April 2012 with my partner. It was perfect for our first time in Palermo, Angela's english is really good so you can chat to her extensively about where to go and things to do. She'll make you feel right at home. Her breakfasts were a treat too, but get there early as it does get eaten pretty quick. The room was spacious and clean. Has a wall of windows, which let in so much light when the shutters are open, was really nice. The bathroom was a good size and clean too. We didn't have a problem with the separate bathroom, was just outside our bedroom. And yes the lights are off when we got home late, but that was fine, we just turned them on and off as we needed. We had mosquitos for couple of nights and Angela quickly told me that if I had mentioned it earlier (I only mentioned it after they'd gone) then she would've got the plugs that keep them away in the summer. The rain that April was unusual for that time of year, so they were unexpected. All in all, we had a great stay and if we were to visit Palermo again, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Some of the complaints from other guests prompted me to write this response, even a year after my stay. Angela really makes your stay worthwhile and she deserves the rating on tripadvisor.
My only suggestion for Angela would be maybe to keep an electric kettle in the room, so that you could drink tea or coffee in your room, when the kitchen is closed. But that's just an extra. There's a really nice Italian cafe, Spinnato I think it's called and we went there every night before bed for some tea. Was a good excuse to have their delicious pistachio cake :)
Hope the cactus is well Angela!
