B&B La Bella Vita

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2014

We came to appreciate the people of Sicily as very friendy and helpful. Fransesco and Luigia were no exception. They went to great lengths to make our stay a success, following up details of our onward trip for us. The room we stayed in was fine, with a very spacious terrace, The location of the B&B is excellent, and allows to do all your exploring in Palermo by foot or public transport. Well-recommended!

To make the best of this amazing city you need to walk, breathe and eat - and then relax for a while. This beautiful apartment is the place to do it! Quiet, calm and comfortable and in the perfect position to walk everywhere you wish. Francesco and Luiga are delightful, charming, helpful and professional and recommended the Trattoria da Pino, just around the corner which was excellent, fun and very cheap! The room we had meant we slept really well, the bathroom is great and the whole ambience is perfect.

Room Tip: Try for a terrace - these were fully booked for our stay but our room was still just fine

In a prime location of Palermo, steps away from the bus stop to the area and located on a pedestrian only street with coffee shops and shopping, we had a very nice space to spend our week in Palermo. The hosts Francesco and Luiga were extremely kind and accomodating and we enjoyed the choice of breakfast in the mornings.

Palermo was our first stop on a 2-week trip to Sicily. We feel very lucky to have stayed at La Bella Vita. Luiga and Francesco met us at the airport--Luigia helped us deal with Alitalia about our suitcase which hadn't arrived with us. By the time we arrived at the B&B, Francesco and Luigia had made us feel completely at ease. Apart from the great advantage of getting to know Francesco and Luigia, you should stay at La Bella Vita because the rooms are comfortable, quiet, and clean. Ours had a beautiful terrace where we could eat breakfast when the weather permitted and look at the sea or the mountains. The bed is very comfortable. We had enough room to unpack and spread out a bit. We enjoyed the completely modern decor of the room and B&B. The electric kettle and tea bags, each hand-lettered so I'd know which ones I could use with my dietary restrictions, were great when we came home in the late afternoons. The neighborhood is excellent, close enough to walk to everything, with good restaurants and shops a few steps away. Francesco brings breakfast to your room, based on what you've ordered the night before, at the time you specify. You can order as much as you want, so you won't be hungry. We especially enjoyed Luigia's home-made cakes. I also really appreciated that they had gotten rice milk for me so I could enjoy caffe latte each morning--the only time on our trip I could have that treat. We enjoyed having a cold bottle of water in the refrigerator at the front door that we could bring to our room when we came back each afternoon. With the exception of one day when it had been knocked out by a major electrical storm, the Internet worked well in the room. Either Luigia or Francesco was always available to answer questions, help with problems, or discuss what we'd seen or done each day. We loved Palermo; a big reason for that is our wonderful stay at La Bella Vita.

Palermo is a wonderful destination but can be challenging in terms of traffic and busy streets. La Bella Vita is situated in a central but quiet street, is safe and secure and has lots of shops, cafes and eating places all around, The B&B is on the top floor of a tall, modern building with great views. Our apartment was very well equipped witht the bonus of a terrace on which to sit out and have the delicious breakfast that is brought to your room with a menu to choose from at the time of your choice. A real bonus is the situation of Bella Vita within Palermo. It is within close walking distance of the historic centre and all the sites but, in the other direction, to modern Palermo of Guicci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Wonderful hosts, Francesco and Luiga, who look after their guests exceedingly well and who will pick you up at the airport and drive you back at the end of your stay, for half the price of a taxi. We will back as, I am sure, will be many other guests. Grazie mille!

B&B La Bella Vita is fantastic accommodation in a great location run by the exceptionally nice couple. The rooms are clean, modern and thoughtfully put together. The bathrooms are sparkling. I am generally very picky about the standard of the rooms and bathrooms of any hotel and I am happy to say that the second I saw the place in person, I was completely at ease. Add to this great start is the ideal location, on a peaceful, attractive high-end block that had a few nice cafes, a bank machine, etc...but within comfortable walking distance to lots of things. It was a pleasure to come back to after a day of running around. Francesco and Luiga are just super and all the reviews are true. The hotel may be difficult to find on your own the very first time so I would definitely elect to have Francesco and Luiga pick you up at the airport. It is a very fair price, they have a nice car and it just makes it completely easy and stress free.

Are you looking for an inviting B&B that is good value, beautiful rooms,quiet, clean,great location with wonderful warm hosts???Look no further!! B&B La Bella Vita is your place! I cannot say enough about it or the wonderful couple that own and run the B&B. From the moment I knew I was going to Palermo,they were helpful in answering all my questions and concerns and upon arriving I was welcomed into their lovely B&B,feeling right at home!
First its located in a great location..right among all the shops and near all the sights...everything within walking distance.The rooms are clean and modern with all comforts needed plus very quiet.Breakfast is prepared for you according to what you choose from the day before and served to your room at the time of your choice.If you are looking for pick up from the airport Francesco does this at a very reasonable price.
I felt right at home here and I cannot thank Francesco and Luigia enough for all the kindness they showed me.They are truly special and I know that anyone who stays at their B&B will feel the same!Thank you Francesco and Luigia!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely!!!
