“Excellent location for the historical centre”
Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Florio for a long weekend and it proved to be an excellent choice. We were delayed arriving due to a storm at the airport resulting in being diverted to Trapani. This was no problem and the owner rearranged to be there when we eventually arrived around 3 hours later than planned.

The B&B is in the modern part of the city but very well placed for walking to the historical centre. This suited us and our room was very comfortable with a good ensuite bathroom.

The breakfasts were excellent with different breads/pastries each day. It was all freshly prepared. We were given tips on how to eat the ricotta in a local style (with sugar & honey).

Plenty of bars nearby ( coffee, pastries, connoli, gelato savouries etc). Recommendations for eating were good. We especially enjoyed La Tenda Rossa and a fish restaurant near the port.

Wifi included was a useful bonus. It's also less than 5 minutes walk from Teatro Politamo where the airport bus drops off and picks up. (Tip: make sure you prebook your return bus to airport at the tabacchi as ours was full and some people couldn't get on)

Would stay there again if in Palermo which is well worth a long weekend

B&B Florio is really in the heart of Palermo: café’s, shops, theatres, bars, the port are all in walking distance. The beautiful beach of Mondello can be reached easily with public transport. The rooms we stayed in are stylish, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, warm cornetto and cappuccino were a perfect start for the days we spent in Palermo. The owner, Francesca is helpful and friendly, she gave us useful advices about what to do, see, eat in the city. We can't wait to come back!

We stayed here one night in a pinch when we were in need of one night's accommodation in Palermo after changing our plans last minute. The owner, Francesca, is wonderful! She was so helpful and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The B&B itself was quaint, clean, and well kept. The rooms were well stocked, A/C controls in each room (the last hotel we were at said temp control in each room which was far from the truth!) so this was a very big deal to us! The location is perfect! Walking distance to Politeamo Square yet it's on a quiet street so the noise of the Square doesn't keep you awake with all the cars and people at night. The location is also walking distance to shops, restaurants, and buses. Great B&B! Wish we had spent our entire stay here and not just one night!!!

I have stayed at the B&B Florio on several occasions as I travel to Palermo every so often for business. From the beginning the owner has been very friendly and takes great care to accommodate your arrival times. Breakfast is available at 8.00am but the onwer has been willing to make it available slightly earlier when necessary. The B&B is very nice, clean, and comfortable. It is located in a very nice, residential area of the city and there are lots of nice restaurants and eateries.

Room Tip: The two rooms I've stayed in are both comfortable. I prefer the one with the queen size bed to t...

Florio BB helped me out when i was in need of a one nights accommodation. The owners are gorgeous people whom were very kind and friendly and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and cozy. The bathrooms seem to have been renovated as well making the rooms look even more beautiful. The area is my favorite area in Palermo. All my favorite bars and restaurants are located on its door step. A definite recommendation from me.
