To travel with style, try a palatial experience of Palazzo Cattolica Art -Apartment!
“There is not much to add to the many positive reviews that were already posted here. Antoinio's apartment is indeed a quirkily arty and comfortable oasis above the historical centre of Palermo. Quiet and sunny in the day, one step away from buzzing friendly bars at night. And the host is as friendly and helpful as described. The place has a homely feel that competes with Palermo's many sites and draws you back "home" for a siesta or early night and makes it worth climbing the 132 steps of the magnificent entry stairs. We spent 8 days here and it is somewhere we would like to go back if we find ourselves in Palermo again. It sleeps four, but probably works best for a couple or three-four very good friends that don't mind sharing a bedroom, as there not really are any "private" rooms (apart from the bathroom! :)”
The apt is literally downtown, set in a lovely street with lots restaurants and cafes in the historic heart of Palermo, just around the corner of Teatro Massimo. Although it's right in the middle of all the restaurants and night life you can't really hear any noise once inside of the apt. The place is spacious, stylish with full equipped kitchen, heating, air conditioned and an amazing view of St' Ignazio Church from the terrace. The apt is on the 4 floor in an ancient building without elevator.
“toni’s place suited us perfectly - it was spacious and well kept, with a balcony that offered stunning views. It’s quiet but also so near the action of bustling Palermo. On your doorstep are tasty restaurants and bars... too many to choose from in fact. We really appreciated the recommendations toni gave us for food and drink... each were tastier than the last! Definitely a great place to stay if you enjoy walking, eating and drinking. So near all the main sites and easy transport links to the airport and other places in Sicily”
Appartamento ristrutturato, sito a pochi passi dalla Cattedrale, in pieno centro storico, nel percorso pedonale arabo normanno, in zona servita da mezzi pubblici e bus turistico, a pochi minuti dalla Cappella Palatina, Teatro Massimo, Quattro Canti.
“It was the best host! You reply quickly and are really friendly. The room was clean and the terrace was so nice. The terrace and the room are not directly connected, but you can move around freely. If you come to the hotel from the station, it is recommended to come to the main street. Google Maps tells me how to get to markets and alleys, but the roads are complicated and it was hard to carry luggage.”
