“The BEST place to stay in Palermo”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

I thought places like this no longer existed. . . a lovingly appointed, elegant, spacious flat in the heart of Palermo, tended by caring and intelligent people. We stayed in July with our three kids and felt safe and cared for, a quiet oasis at the end of full days of sightseeing. We could not be happier with our choice.

Central, safe, spacious and nice accommodation in Palermo. Very pleasant host. We stayed here June 2013 with our 2 kids. The only issue was the late PM and early AM noise from the motorcycles parking and leaving the piazza that the bedroom window was facing.

Our Ai Cartari B&B experience was exceptionally good. Our room was enormous and lavishly furnished and the independent entrance a boon for a retreat in the heat of the day. Be warned to expect too much breakfast in the form of a pastry-shop full of sweet things.

in fact the place of this BB in city entre is quiet, and the streets which are not very pleasant around hide this beautiful place. The location is easy due to independent door faciliting going in & out when whe want . The best improvement could be to have a small kitchen corner . The restaurants around are fine .

Having read many positive reviews about this B&B, our expectations have been very high but they have been even outperformed. The two rooms (or should I better call them suites) in an old palazzo are tastefully decorated. Each has its separate entrance which give you a lot of unusual privacy in connection with the cordial atmosphere of a private B&B. The rooms are very quite since they are situated towards small inner court withour traffic Loria is a very charming host who makes you feel at home and can give you good advice, e.g. where to buy high quality ceramics. Not to mention the delicious cakes she prepares for an impressive breakfast.
If you want to experience old Palermo at its best, this is your choice! Highly recommendable!

Room Tip: Both rooms (suites) are equally recommendable.

We booked through Laterooms two weeks in advance, received a confirmation. When we arrived we rang the bell, were kept waiting almost 30 minutes and finally the landlady arrived only to be told that the place was overbooked. She gave us some feeble excuse about having had problems with her internet provider and then told us that she had booked us with another B&B nearby. We had no options but to accept. The new B&B was noisy, stuffy and on the whole we did not enjoy our stay there. Cannot comment on the rooms but it is the first time this happens to me and certainly this practice sounds very unprofessional. Had we been notified in advance we would have chosen another type of accommodation. Never again

We couldn't commend Ai Cartari more highly. The house is of great character, beautifully maintained and very spacious. Our bedroom was separated from our living area by a pair of huge heavy curtains - in fact it felt a little as if we staying on a stage set for an Italian opera. Breakfasts were sufficient to sustain us for much of the day and one of Palermo's premier restaurants is immediately adjoining. Rosalia is the perfect host, attentive without being intrusive - we would certainly stay again.
