Emanuelas apartment was a perfect homebase for us, a couple and a friend, during our stay in Palermo. It is very bright, spacious and nicely decorated and we found everything we needed there. As it was very hot during our stay and the apartment is on the top floor of the (elevator-less) building, we were particularly glad about the air-conditioning. The area is a bit rougher than other parts of the city and with the exception of fabulous nearby Ballaro Market doesn't offer much in terms of shopping, eating or drinking out, but the centre can be reached by foot in about 15 minutes and the main station in less than 10. Emanuela was a lovely host. She was flexible about check-in times and always quick in responding. On the day of our arrival, she gave us a very warm welcome in person, brought us fresh biscotti and gave us tips for our time in Palermo. All in all I would definitely recommend the apartment.

We had a wonderful time in Palermo! Our hosts have been very friendly, very courteous with check in & out times, communication in advance was easy and when we arrived at the apartment they bought cannoli & mini cassatas for us! Perfect start for a holiday. The apartment was clean and in a very good condition with everything you need. The kitchen could be a little bit better equipped (maybe a sharp knife to cut meat & vegetables) - but this is only for people who cook a lot. The ballaro market is nearby - you get there everything from fish, meat, vegetables, fruits, etc. There is also a supermarket and the central station is in walking distance. Make sure you take a train to Cefalu for a daytrip. This is really a very good apartment for your holiday in Palermo, if we will ever come back we would love to stay there again!

Fantastic flat - bright, luminous, spacious, immaculately clean and stylish. Perfect base, everything works, good shower and decent water pressure. Really comfy beds and great shared areas, nicely decorated and great for lounging around in after a long day's sightseeing. Kitchen generally well equippedish but a bit basic (especially on knives) if you like to cook as we did (you have to go to Ballaro food market - just sensational produce and soooo cheap!) Emanuela and Patrizia efficiently dealt with all booking queries and were there to check us in. Location is close to all monuments and is in a residential area much of which is quite (and in some places extremely ...!) scruffy but full of character and with THE most friendly people. We did however really struggle to find many decent restaurants and perhaps a cab ride to the new town would have offered greater variety but we really wanted to stay local. I was surprised and disappointed at this, food being one of the driving motivations for us going to Palermo! The street food is brilliant and cheap and great fun (and mostly fried! you can't leave without trying the Panelle of course ..) The flat is noisy (quiet neighbours but noisy traffic 4 floors down.. and up..and no lift...good for working off all those Panelle) Really good value for money and I wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else because the character of this district was fabulous but it is chaotic and noisy (and very poor in places) which is kind of what you expect in Palermo. Buatta restaurant, walkable and on Via Vitt. Emanuele pretty damn good; the other one was Trattoria Vecchio Mafone which was good and walkable from the flat. the local restaurants we went to or saw were very quiet suggesting maybe people don't go out to eat so much during the week so maybe that's why we weren't finding so many - It wasn't for lack of trying! Luckily we like to cook so made the most of market Ballaro and feasted on seafood and fabulous fresh seasonal vegetables for 2 evenings. Thoroughly enjoyable and a great base especially with the market so close.

This was one of the best hosts we have ever met, everything was very accurate and the host was very helpful in any question, responded very fast to all our requests and took care that we feel comfortable during our stay. Apartment itself is very nice and spacious, with several balconies and beautiful floors which makes the whole place special. The only thing which was missing is air-con, since it is quite hot in August in Palermo. It was also a little bit noisy from outside, even it was the top floor, but I guess this is everywhere in Palermo, if you like to stay in the centre of the city. Our overall experience was very good, and this was mostly because of the amazing host, who is absolutely caretaking and trustful.
