Description

The space

In the center of Palermo, in a 30's building, in a great apartment with ceilings and floors of epoch, I rent out a beautiful, great and bright room for brief or middle periods.
The house is found in a strategic zone of Palermo: from here you can still reach afoot all the points of connection and the greatest part of the places of tourist interest of the city as the Theater Massimo, Politeama Plaza, Court, the Market of Capo, Zisa, Cantieri Culturali, the Belle's Arti Academy, the Cathedral, Palazzo dei Normanni, the Fleas Mercatino, the Market of Ballarò, the Catacombs and so many others. You will excellently be connected besides with the station and with the greatest points of intersection of the city; just outside the house there is the stop of 3 lines of urban bus: 122 (it can connect you with the railway station and with the buses that put in connection with other Sicilian cities as Cefalù, Catania, Messina, Syracuse, Agrigento), 124 (it can connect with Politeama Plaza, where the shuttle arrives from the airport Falcone-Borsellino of Palermo and the airport of Birgi-Trapani and from which you can take the buses for the western zone of Palemo and going straight down you can reach more easily the Port of Palermo) and 110 (it can connect with Piazza Indipendenza from which you can take the buses for Monreale). You will be in one of the most lively, most commercial and sure zones in the city; if one day you didn't want to do really nothing, outside the house downstairs you can find everything that you need and much more! Also for who loves travel knowing the best and more representative local gastronomy, you cannot find a best place than my house: in fact you will be a stonesthrow from some of the most famous places of gastronomic attraction of the city: the Pastry-Shop Scimone, creator of the most famous and excellent "Dita d'Apostolo" and for all its delicacies, the rosticceria Nino 'u Ballarinu, as many famous for its "Pani ccà Meusa", one of the best of the city, and the famous typical restaurant Ai Cascinari. You will feel you fortunate as me to live in a proper zone for everything and all without never becoming obvious and banal but for its proper vitality both to whom comes to Palermo for relaxation and tourism both to whom comes for job or for study. The apartment is enough great. There am an ample entry, 2 bedrooms, (one of which it also acts from study), a wardrobe-room, a saloon/dining-room, 2 bathrooms (one with tub and the other with the shower), a kitchen and a small terrace; every room has its balcony or its window.
I live a lot at home, I like the quiet and the calm and, if the calm, the quiet, the independence are all you want and all you need, the flat allow all the roommates to have it and to not disturb each other.
As I wrote, the apartment is entirely decorate with ancient tiles and with ancient roofs, it is endowed with autonomous heating and it is well ventilated in the summer and it is totally equipped. My guest is not only welcomed like in a family and calm atmosphere but also is enjoying some confort of a room endowed with television with the earthling digital, a comfort matrimonial bed, a balcony, the own bath with tub, linen, the use of the kitchen and Wi-Fi.
The breakfast is not included!
I will make sure me of your good arrival to house, trying to facilitate your permanence in this splendid, rare and interesting city. You will have your personal keys and I will try to be you of help in the search of restaurants, places to be visited and small duties; previous notice there is the total availability for the check-in and the check-out; I speak very well Spanish and I get by with English. In the house there is a small ransom little dog, extremely polite and good, called Hormiga.
I hope to be clerar in my explications in spite of my incorrect english and i hope to have you as my guests.
A presto!
P.S. Two suggestions more: 1) Please, don't consider your booking already happened until when you won't receive a positive answer by me; 2) Please, read the house rules! Thanks


House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

Il mio lavoro a teatro mi porta spesso fuori di casa, quindi vivo il mio appartamento come un nido dove rilassarmi nei periodi lontani dalla tournée. Amo la vita tranquilla e mi prendo cura con amore, pulizia e attenzione di casa mia. Altrettanto richiedo ai miei ospiti che con amore, simpatia e familiarità saranno ben accolti.
Al vostro arrivo troverete un appartamento e una stanza puliti e ordinati. Il mantenimento di questo stato di cose sarà ben gradito.
Le pulizie di casa sono programmate 2 volte alla settimana salvo cambiamenti o esigenze personali. È mia regola non disturbare i miei ospiti durante le loro vacanze; quindi, nel caso di permanenze dalla settimana in su, sarà necessario stabilire al vostro arrivo l'orario e i giorni migliori per le pulizie per non disturbarvi o intralciarci nel menage casalingo.
Potrete utilizzare la cucina, rispettando gli spazi e i tempi comuni. Quindi, sarebbe proprio bello che evitaste di intrattenervi ore per cucinare manicaretti che potrete benissimo gustarvi nei mille ritrovi gastronomici di Palermo, la città forse più economica d'Italia. Chiedo di stare attenti (al gas, per esempio, a maneggiare bene e con cura i vari elettrodomestici e accessori) e poi di pulire e mettere sempre in ordine.
Lo stesso tipo di cura chiedo nell'utilizzo del vostro bagno privato e degli ambienti comuni.
Vivo con una cagnolina molto buona e affettuosa di nome Hormiga. È trattata come una figlia quindi, per favore, non stupitevi se dorme sul divano di casa oltre che nella sua cuccia. Sarete certi però che nella vostra stanza non entrerà tranne se non le darete voi stessi il permesso. Ha solo un piccolo difetto: non abbaia mai ma lo fa solo quando si impaurisce per i tuoni, i petardi e i fuochi d'artificio come, del resto, tutti gli animali. A causa della sua presenza, non posso accogliere ospiti accompagnati da pet.
Nonostante non si evinca dalle foto, la stanza che metto a disposizione per gli ospiti è grande e permette di vivere la casa in maniera del tutto indipendente, avendo anche il vostro bagno personale. Nonostante ami quest'indipendenza e divisione degli spazi, mi metterò a vostra disposizione per informazioni e consigli.
Spero di essere stata chiara e rimango a disposizione per ulteriori chiarimenti, pensando sempre che la migliore regola di un ospite è tentare di mantenere la casa nel suo stato originario!

I had a wonderful stay at Marika's, for me she is really the best host in Palermo, though I only stayed for two nights. Marika goes everywhere with her cheerful little friend Hormiga, they came to pick me up form the station on the first day, and woke up at 5am to say goodbye when I left... Marika's home is absolutely beautiful, she styled it with all the vintage furnitures, paintings and objects, I enjoyed the most was the balcony where you can sit and see the vivid colours of the city. Marika made the room so comfortable that I couldn't ask for more, she gave me all the tips on how to get around, explained me how to explore the most of the city in a short time. I hope to stay here when next time I visit Palermo. All the best to you Marika and Hormiga. Y

What a great stay! Marika was lovely - warm, interesting and a mine of local tips. Her flat was really comfortable and in a 'real' neighbourhood a few minutes' walk from the centre - and the tourist crowds. Thanks Marika - especially for the breakfast treats. ps Hormiga is sooo cute! R

Marika was an angel. She was warm and welcoming. Her house was clean and tidy and it felt like home. Coming from Australia, I had had a long day of travel, and Marika welcomed me with a large glass of cold water and a very much needed hug. Marika provided a range of things in the fridge for us (which she didn't have to do) and she even gifted us with a beautiful traditional Italian breakfast with so much food we couldn't finish it all. Marika was helpful in every sense of the word. I highly recommend Marika and her beautiful home to anyone wishing to stay in Palermo. She made my friend and I feel like we belonged. Thank you, Marika for a lovely stay. Love Genevieve and Donna.

I can only confirm: Marika is a wounderful host who helped me to enjoy my holiday in Palermo. The apartment is in a great location, very clean, brand new bathroom, amazing bedroom with fresco on the ceiling. At my arrival in Palermo, Marika picked me up from bus station and treated me typical street food. Marika can provide great recommendations for activities and restaurants to enjoy. Also - make sure to ask her about the best pastry shops!

This is a very unique accommodation experience. Marika was very helpful and very sweet , especially is she was super incredibly thoughtful . She always concerned me , let me feel at home .She knows everything about this city , and she give me so many advice , it's very helpful for me . She has a small dog "Horgima", Horgima just like a child , very smart and lovely ,also very quiet. For me ,Hormiga not just a dog ,she more like a real sweet friend . This room was very comfortable, very clean and very unique. The whole house was very clean, and very artistic, Here has a personal bathroom, also can use kitchen .Sometimes, drink coffee and sit in the rocking chair watching TV, chatting with Marika , more happy then everything. Environment was very convenient, just beside the main road. There is a supermarket and a bus station, to the bus station or port just need 20 minutes. Basically, in this city, there is no need to take the bus, I can go to many places, very easy . I am very enjoy stay here, stay here like stay friend's house .thank you so much Marika and Hormiga .Super High recommendation. 這是一個非常獨特的住宿經驗。Marika是位非常有幫助及體貼入微的人,她非常有責任感,而且總是關心房客。她非常了解這個城市,會非常有耐心的提供許多意見且分享許多生活熱趣。她有一隻小狗,房Hormiga就像是位小朋友,很聰明可愛,牠很安靜而且不會掉毛,跟牠在一起會忘了牠是隻小狗,會認為牠真的就是個很安靜可愛的朋友。這個房間很舒服,很乾淨,佈置很獨特漂亮。整個房子都非常乾淨,且很有藝術感,有個人的浴室,也可以使用廚房,有時候,做在餐桌喝著咖啡,或者做在搖搖椅看電視,跟marika 聊天,比出去玩還舒服,就在家裡一樣。環境非常便利,就在主要道路旁邊。樓下有超市及公車站,到公車站或港口坐公車只要20分鐘。基本上,在這個城市內,不太需要搭公車,用走的就可以去許多地方,非常簡單。非常享受這個住宿經驗,待在這裡就像是待在朋友家,很高興認識到這個城市,這位朋友。高推薦。
