“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

So many reviews have highlighted the many reasons for choosing tis B&B, that it is difficult to write anything that hasn't already been covered by others. For us the extra service, the quiet location and its proximity to shopping, tourist attractions, places to eat and the airport bus stop were all recommendations for La Bella Vita. The charm and helpfulness of the young owners however make this an extra special place to stay. For example, despite the fact we were staying at another B&B for our first nights in Palermo, Luigia and Francesco were happy to store a bag for us while we travelled around Sicily which made our travels by train and ferry a lot easier.

We only had one night and Palermo and wished it was longer. This B&B is spotless clean with great rooftop panoramic views. Managed by a really lovely couple - would highly recommend it. Extremely good value.

We planned our accommodations early and vacillated between this location and another one in the same area. We are very pleased with every aspect of our stay at B&B La Bella Vita. From our pre-arranged pick up at the airport (We highly recommend this luxury, as we were well cared for and taken directly to the B&B without any taxi or car rental hassle.) to the drop off at the car rental location, we were assisted with courtesy.
Luigia and Francesco are both wonderful hosts and an adorable couple who have been running this B&B for 3 years. They are doing a fabulous job and work very hard. The entire experience was excellent. Their recommendations for dinners were excellent. From pizza to authentic Sicilian cuisine, their directions were perfect. They made a referral for a tour guide that turned out to be spectacular.
As the previous TA pieces state, the breakfast offered is very good. The linen and towels are wonderful. The location is perfect.
If I was to state 1 small issue, the beds are hard. They were not the hardest that we came across on the island, but there were others on our trip that were more to the North American comfort level of firm, but not hard. But this is definitely a personal choice.
I highly recommend La Bella Vita. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you both, Luigia and Francesco. You are "the best".

We do not normally stay at a B & B's when we travel, but this one came highly recommended from Trip Adviser, , we thought we would give it a try.

We arrived early in the morning, after an overnight Ferry from Naples. The room was not ready, but I didn't expect it to be, as we where there about 9;30 in the morning.

We where greeted by Luigia and Francesco, our two charming, lovely young hosts who welcomed us into their own apartment to rest and have coffee after our long trip.
They are a wonderful couple with a flair for making you feel at home, and we did feel like we had known them for a long time.

It is a terrific B & B and is located in the New section of Palermo on a pedisterian only street, loved that, absolutely loved everything about it, from the menu for your breakfast that you pick out the night before, to the small refrigerator in the lobby that held something if you needed to use it, to the closeline on the terrace , in case you need to wash out a few things.

THE TERRACE, 7th floor, we had the end terrace surrounded on one side by the wonderful mountains and the port of Palermo on the other side, what a view, and especially at night, you could see the stars forever, and walkway below us, no cars, just people
of course we had breakfast outside every morning on that terrace

The Room was spacious with a large bed and comfortable, large hand shaped chair, which they gave me,as I have leg problems, big bathroom, shower with a great shower head and water flow, only down side to the room was the airconditioner, which was noisy.

The breakfast was served each morning by both Luigia and Francesco, they where always smiling and a bright beginning to each day.

We where there 1 week and would go back in a minute and will do so next year, when we visit Palermo once again.

Great location, charming hosts, clean, comfortable, what more could you want

Luigia and Francesco are wonderful hosts. They picked us up at the airport and drove us to their B&B. We were thrilled with our room; the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was large, the shower was great, and the balcony was awesome. From one view on the balcony is the ocean, the other the mountains; below is a piazza filled with shops and restaurants. You select your breakfast choices and they are delivered to your room. There is a small shared refrigerator in the entry hall which we appreciated to keep a couple bottles of pop. Each room has a container of water in the refrigerator which is nice to have very cold water available. The B&B is in the new part of Palermo, the area is very clean. It's reasonable walking distance to old Palermo and sites. The balconies have a small clothesline if you need to rinse small items of clothing. We definitely recommend staying here.

A fleeting but pleasant stay in this most centrally located B&B, which was both quiet and comfortable. Luigia and Francesco were extremely helpful in guiding us to their apartment (it's situated in a pedestrian precinct next door to Tourist Information office) and the pre-booked parking was a doddle. We highly recommend this enthusiastic young couple.

Luigia and Francesco, the couple who run La Bella Vita, were so helpful throughout the course of my trip planning process and during my stay with them in Palermo. They really are a lovely, kind, and welcoming couple, exactly what anyone would want when staying at a B&B, particurlarly in a foreign country. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious, and modern, as was the bathroom. The large terrace with views of the mountains on one side and the sea on the other was great, as well. I would highly recommend B&B La Bella Vita to anyone visiting Palermo. The location is central in a nice part of Palermo near the Port. Had a wonderful visit!!
