We've been to many air bnbs before, but must say this was one of the worst ever. It was really dirty! The bathroom has not been cleaned for quite some time, especially the shower and the toilet. The shower door is broken and replaced by a shower curtain thet should be replaced quite some time ago. It does not look like on the photos. The kitchen is even more dirty. Fridge and stove have not been cleaned got quite some time. There were leftovers of food on the dishes and kitchen ustenils. When we arrived there was a pile of dishes that has apparently just been washed and was left on a really dirty old towel full of mold. The furniture has been changed. The photos are outdated. Looks quite different. Also when there was water problem - ran out of water every day round same time - nobody was responding to our messages. For us the only pros were air conditioning, spaciousness and central position. But I think that's not what Air Bnb is about.

Martina & Federico's apartment was wonderful - more than enough room for two people with a lovely mezzanine level and well equipped kitchen. It's close to plenty of restaurants and cafes as well as the train station and main tourist area in palermo. Martina & Federico were very helpful hosts and replied quickly to all of our messages. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting Palermo.

We had a great stay here. The flat is brilliantly located and very central. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great. It was also very welcome to have the air conditioning! They provided some great suggestions of places to eat and drink which were really helpful. Thank you Marina!

We were welcomed by Frederico's cousin, Marina, who was very helpful and nice with some great tips and suggestions for things to do and places to eat, drink and shop. The apartment is super central and really easy to get to from the airport - we just jumped in a sharing taxi which cost the same as the bus (€7) but much comfier. The place is super cute and looked fairly as expected from the photos we had seen with a small but equipped kitchen, bathroom (shower curtain is a bit worse for wear and needs replacing), bed upstairs in the loft, small dining table and an arm chair under the loft (not another bed as shown in the photos!). Would have been a bit cosier with a two seater couch rather than one lone armchair but since we didn't spend too much time in the apartment it wasn't that big a deal. However, the pillows on the bed were very flat so would have been better with multiple or fluffier pillows. The aircon was lovely as it was quite warm in Palermo during our stay, so we generally kept the windows closed and didn't really notice the noise. All in all, we had a great stay and would recommend!

Pros: - Spacious apartment - Good location, close to transport, bars, and supermarket. - Communication prior to check-in. -Check-in was easy Cons: - Photos are dated. Shower screen in photo is in reality a dirty shower curtain. And the second bed (ground level of apartment) has been replaced with an old shabby armchair. - Drying dishes and clutter left on kitchen bench - No hot water for entire 3 night / 4 day stay. We checked in at 9:30pm Saturday and notified both hosts separately 30 minutes after check-in, and both failed to reply, and only Federico responded the following day. When Federico finally replied, he's response was to stick my head out of the window and see if the cleaner was on the street. When the cleaner could not fix the problem, the cleaner then told us someone would be there to fix it the following day as it was a Sunday . A further 24 hours went by (Monday morning) with no contact, so we contacted both hosts again and they were not even aware that it hadn't been fixed. We were then told someone would be there to fix the hot water later that day, no one showed up. We checked out the following day (tuesday) and never heard anything ever again from either of the host. We understand and accept that things go wrong with houses, and the difficulty of getting people to fix those problems on weekends is even more understandable. But the lack of response and communication showed us that neither host cared about our experience in their property. Palermo is a wonderful city, but unfortunately we remember it for this frustrating experience.

Marina was very nice! She welcomed us and gave us advice about the neighborhood and how to get around. The place is cool, nice for cooking and hanging out. There is a small balcony looking over a nice and busy piazzetta. (for information: with the window opened, it is generally noisy as it is close to one of the main streets.)

My boyfriend and I had great time staying at martina&federico's. Marina was our host and she was so helpful before and during our stay responding to all our messages really quickly. The flat is in an ideal location- and it quickly became our favourite area of Palermo- it's really close to nice bars/restaurants/the main sights and the markets just 5mins away. The beach in mondello is an easy bus ride away and definitely worth it! We ended up going 3 times. A couple of issues are that the flat could do with a sofa and some of the pictures advertising it need updating. I.e. The shower doesn't have a door but a curtain that is feeling a bit sorry for itself, there is no little table upstairs and there was no breakfast stuff! None of this mattered really though because we just think it's a matter of updating the original description/photos. We were provided with loads of info and support and it's a great base to explore Palermo from. And it's in a quieter square than most- which is nice when you've spent a busy day among the markets and the mopeds! We slept brilliantly- which could partly be thanks to the aperitivos- but the bed was really comfy. Marina also let us have a late check out which was greatly appreciated because our flight was in the evening. We had a fantastic time in Palermo - it's a beautiful city with so much going on and the flat is brilliant. We would love to come back one day- thanks so much for having us!
