Irene was a super nice host who can even speak fluent German. Communication was easy and she offered us to late checkout as no other guests were coming directly after us. The apartment is fully equipped and nicely located in the old town. However, the apartment is in the basement with no windows in the dorm and living room which is probably the reason for the stuffy air. I thought by the pictures its a bit bigger, but that's ok as we wanted to see the city anyway.

Response from Davide & Irene:
Hi Nico, many thanks for your stay at Rifugio ai Candelai and for your nice words! As well shown by the pictures and as well descripted and detailed in the description of our Airbnb web page, the house is small, 30mq, and the openings are in the badroom and at the main entrance door, at 3 meters more or less from the livingroom, which anyway, together with air conditioning system, can ventilate the house. The house is straight in the core of the old town, making the visit of the city very easy, and it means also built in a period with different building standards. Anyway this aspect grants the guests a fresh air during the summer period, which is very hot here in Palermo! Thank you again for being here and you'll be welcomed whenever you want.. :-) Davide & Irene

This is a small but well-equipped apartment with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Excellent location with almost everything in walking distance. There is heating and AC, a washer, all necessary kitchen equipment and a good bathroom with a shower. There is WIFI. Irene is a charming hostess who answers any questions you may have quickly. And everything is nice, new IKEA type furnishing; meaning absolutely clean and functional. I highly recommend Irene and Davide's place!

Davide and Irene were so helpful during our stay in Palermo. They had so many wonderful recommendations for restaurants, day trips, etc. We had no problem getting in touch with them at any point during our stay. Couldn't have been happier with this accommodation.
