The Cathedral Guest House, in the heart of Palermo, offers elegant, luminous and silent matrimonial rooms on the second floor of a 15th century totally renovated building, with elevator. Each room comes with its private bathroom with shower, free WiFi, double glazing, heating and air conditioning. At your disposal is a bright living room with balconies and an fully equipped kitchen overlooking a small square, typical of Palermo Old Town: you'll feel part of the city, always preserving your privacy.
Guests can always have mineral water, tea, infusions and chamomile for free. Breakfast is served only on request for an additional cost of 8 euros/people: you would enjoy typical fresh local sweets like "cannoli", "iris con ricotta", "cassate".
As a super host I will always be happy to share with you tips and information about the most typical restaurants, secret corners, events and places of interest not to be missed.
The Ballarò market, the Norman Palace, the Botanical Garden, the many Baroque and Arab-Norman churches, are just some examples of the destinations which you can reach in a few minutes on foot or by bike: ask for a guided bike tour to discover the secret corners of the largest historical center in Italy! Welcome to Palermo!
Please notice that I have only matrimonial rooms. If your reservation is for two guests, I usually close the second double bedroom, as well as the second bathroom. If the reservation is for more than 2 guests, you will enjoy obviously both rooms and both bathrooms.
In both cases, you will have at your disposal the kitchen and the living room.
You can ask for the use of both bedrooms for only two guests, but you will be charged of an additional cost of 20 euros per day.
Interaction with guests
I keep looking at my city like I was a tourist, so I will share with you many tips about Palermo.
You will not find a TV in the apartment...this is a choice !
By the way: the best way to experience the Old Town is by bicycle! Ask for a guided bike tour with me among monuments, good food and history! Cycling has never been so cultural and comfortable!
Other things to note
HOW TO GET HERE:
From July 2015 onwards Palermo’s Arab-Norman Itinerary has become an UNESCO heritage site. This recognition comes with various traffic restrictions on via Vittorio Emanuele, the main road leading to my apartment.
By car, please, pay attention: web maps of the recent huge restricted traffic zone (ZTL) are not yet updated !! I suggest to park at "Piazza Papireto" (off the ZTL) that you can easily reach following this path: Corso Calatafimi, Piazza Indipendenza, Corso Alberto Amedeo, Via Matteo Bonello, Piazza Papireto.
Then you will walk 5 minutes along Via Bonello, Via Gioeni, Via Sant'Agata alla Guilla and Via del Celso.
