Stayed here for a total of three nights and had a great time. The rooms are nice (some are more spacious than others) and comfy. There is a tv in each room, and it was fun watching Men In Black dubbed in Italian! The staff is simply amazing; so friendly, warm, helpful, certainly among the best out there. The women in the morning make several types of cake for breakfast (orange, pound, chocolate, apple) and you will be tempted to go back for more! Breakfast also includes freshly-squeezed orange juice, yogurt, cornflakes and milk upon request, cornetti, bread rolls, and a great assortment of fresh fruit (bananas, oranges, kiwis, apples, etc.). The B&B is in a residential part of Palermo, a ten-minute walk from the train station, and relatively easy to find as long as you have a map to orient you in the right direction. The walk to the B&B is along a main street, so even when I was alone in the evening walking back to the B&B it was okay... you have to be aware, but there are always other people around who can help if there's any trouble.
I would definitely stay here again, and I can't recommend the staff highly enough; they are all superb.
