“Wonderful centrally located apartment - be sure to book Stefania's tour of Palermo.””
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We loved the apartment, which was beautifully clean and comfortable - the air conditioning and patio were especially welcome. The location was great, and was within walking distance of everything. Stefania couldn't have been a more helpful host. She is also a tour guide, and we opted for her half day tour which took in lots of the sights as well as giving us an introduction to Palermo's wonderful street food - she is very knowledgeable and passionate about her home city. All in all, a great stay.

“Lovely apartment in very convenient location for exploring Palermo”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Stefania was a most welcoming and helpful host and Casa Amaltea was a very comfortable apartment , conveniently located in a side street , close to bus stops, shops and cafes/restaurants.
Our tour of Palermo, with Stefania as our guide, was so interesting and included tasting of some delicious local foods.
Thank you Stefania for making us feel so welcome in Palermo.
We would highly recommend Casa Amaltea to anyone looking for a self catering apartment in central Palermo.

“Lovely flat in perfect location to explore Palermo!”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a great week in Palermo. The apartment is very well appointed and comfortable with modern facilities. It's very clean and has a lovely terrasse. Stefania, the owner, is very friendly and pointed us to the best sites to visits and restaurants to try (you have to fuel all the walking!). It's just a 5 minutes walk from the Politeama place so very handy to explore the city on foot, yet in a little street away from the bustle. Politeama is also the place where the bus from/to the airport and the open-top tour buses arrive/depart so very good if you don't want to drive. A couple of streets away is via Liberta with high end shops. There are loads of restaurants and bars in the area, as well as little shops for bread, fruits and vegetables and of course a fabulous ice-cream parlour: we didn't manage to try all the flavours so we'll have to come back

“Very friendly, helpful hostess and a good location for buses round the city and beyond.”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We bought a four-day travel card from the AMAT kiosk who also supplied us with a bus map. There is a free navette which takes you round the historic centre, so you can hop on and off, but it is very crowded. Best trips out: Cefalu and Solunto/Porticello, both by train. There is a lot of walking for the last trip!

“This was a perfect fit for us"”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved this beautiful rental. It's located on a quiet street, so there wasn't much traffic of any kind. The private patio is large and secure. We were very impressed by the spacious and attractive interior. We cooked two dinners and found the kitchen to be more than adequate (there is a great 24 hour market within a ten minute walk). There are plenty of restaurants close by. The owner, Stefani, knows Palermo inside and out and is happy to tell you what to see, or even act as your guide. Lastly, the bus stop from and to the airport was a little over a block away.

“Fantastic spacious apartment in city”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We loved staying here. The flat had everything you needed and was very spacious. The location was city centre but the flat is double glazed and very quiet indoors at night. We loved having a kitchen to cook local food in and a garden that got the sun all day. There was plenty of kitchen equipment and a breakfast and juice provided. The bathroom was large and modern with a great shower. Towels and soap provided. The host had thought of everything - there was a TV, spare duvet, local books, cleaning tools, excellent Wifi, very secure, even lovely flowers in the garden! I can't rate this apartment highly enough! The host was very friendly and made sure we had the info we needed to get to the flat and provided local tips. The location was near the shops and theatre and short walk from the harbour. I would definitely stay again and would say it is the best apartment I have been in for a holiday!!
