Bee Claire is well located in the old part of Palermo, surrounded by most places of historical significance, good shopping and great dining. It has good access to public transportation and is only a 30 minute bus ride to the beautiful private beaches of Mondello. Gloria, the owner, was very warm and gracious. We received a friendly reception from her and her canine companion, "Smokey" and were made to feel like welcome guests to her beautiful home. The room was lovely and bright with comfortable beds and kitchen basics. The only let down was the bathroom's plumbing. The shower cubicle was small and the base would overflow quickly, so showers were pitifully short. Be sure to note the address of the property, as I couldn't spot one on the Home page, and get directions. The building is tucked in a warren of ancient cobble stoned streets and isn't distinguishable until after you get there. All in all, a special place to stay.

“An ideal base in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Great location close to the lively Ballaro market (3 mins walk, great for breakfasts and picnic goodies) and the Quattro Canti, the heart of the old city. The apartment was clean and unfussy, with a view onto the quiet inner courtyard. Everything we could have needed. And at a great price. Many thanks for the welcome Gloria (and Smoky)!

“Great little find”

I stayed in the Bee Claire guest house with my friend in March 2013. This is in an excellent central location just a 5/10 minute walk from the train station. it is also very near Ballero market which is fantastic. The apartment is in lovely condition and very clean and reasonably well equipped. The owner lived upstairs and was very helpful and friendly so it was very easy to contact her for advice on anything to do with the apartment.
It might be useful for guests to have a little checklist of things like where the bins go etc, as we did feel we kept on bothering the owner for little things. This however was no problem at all, however, as nothing was too much trouble.
We would definitely stay at Bee Claire again. We paid a very reasonable price for a lovely little apartment.
