Reviewed 4 June 2014

My wife and I stayed at this B&B for two nights in Palermo. It's on a beautiful street - close to all the action, yet far enough away that you can get some peace and quiet. Rooms were very comfortable, and the host (a fluent French speaker) gave very good advice. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We were in the triple room, and it was very large, and could easily sleep three people.

Manlio and Manuela have created a welcoming, quiet, haven in the busy city of Palermo. The B and B really is an easy walk from the bus stop at the central station when you arrive from the airport. The location is also very central, making it easy to explore the markets, churches and gather up the atmosphere of this fascinating city. This young couple are very welcoming and try to do everything they can to make your stay an excellent one. The large room and separate private bathroom were very clean. The decore is interesting and a little funky! Manlio was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants - these turned out to be just what we wanted to experience in Palermo. Back in the B and B the breakfasts of bowls of fresh seasonal fruit, sweet Sicilian treats , good coffee or tea, yoghurt etc were great, This is the place to stay in Palermo!

Located a stone's throw from Quatro Conti, the historic epicenter of old Palermo, La vie delle biciclette is quite fittingly situated on a sidestreet off Via Roma full of bike vendors. It's convenient to the city's three main markets as well as the bus and train stations and most other points of interest. From the outside, the building simply looks like another faded palazzo, but open the doors and wow! Their accommodations were a calm and quite oasis in the middle of a frenetic city. Decorating style was funky but carefully thought out with lots of antiques, fascinating knick-knacks, and gallery-quality photos they've taken. Our room was extremely large with a romantic canopy bed and the separate bathroom was atypical for Sicily in that it featured a sizable tub and ample hot water for a restful soak after a long day on the streets. Simple put, Manuela and Manlio are a couple of the sweetest people we met during five weeks of traveling in Sicily. They're a young, artistic, and very well educated couple with an extremely cute and well-behaved son — but don't worry, you'll neither see nor hear him during your stay except for perhaps a glance at his smiling face over breakfast. Freshly squeezed orange juice and big bowls of fruit salad each morning were wonderful! Immediately upon walking in after a long haul from the Aeolian islands, we were offered restorative espressos and supplied with helpful maps and business cards detailing a number of attractions and more importantly, local eating options, all of which turned out to be great. It was the perfect setting for the finale to our honeymoon on the island. We can't say enough nice things about this place!

Quiet, clean, beautifully decorated B&B in a Palazzo in the heart of Palermo. Manlio and his wife were such great hosts--incredible helpful with great restaurant recommendations. Our room was spacious and comfortable. A very elegant place.

The breakfast was the best we had in our 12 days in Sicily--lots of fresh fruit (available at all hours during the day, by the way) and delicious cappucino. The little things make a difference too--like the fact that they have complimentary bottled water which you can take at any time.

Definitely stay here!

If you love meeting people and trying local food, the B&B would be ideal for you. That's why I'm regular here - stayed three times so far.
Whenever I go back, Maluera and Manlio give me a warm welcome - this year their cute prince joined! They are ready to give lots of tips: places to visit and eat (you cannot miss the places they suggest, esp. gelato, Bucatini con le sarde, Sicilian food products places!) Even before arrival, they kindly check timetables and do some research for me. If you want to buy nice Sicilian wine, ask them!
I'm sure I'll go back again soon! Arrivederc!i

This characterful Old building is situated in a typical narrow street but only yards from the via Roma, and a main bus route within easy walking distance are the Central Station street markets, elegant shops, beautiful Churches the diversity is amazing. Manilo and Manuela suggesting restaurants, make phone calls on your behalf.. They are a lovely young couple and with baby Manfreddy, they give you a glimpse of Scilian family life when they come in to do breakfast. The rooms are spotless, fresh towels offered daily and your own kitchen and sitting area accessible any time. A fresh fruit bowl water and facilities for making a hot drink all free. The showers are hot and spotless also.. Its an old building so no lift but stairs are shallow and easily accessible. Roof top views from apartment are lovely. We will be back next time we visit Sicily as we loved it so much. Jo David Coline and MiMi.
