As central as it could be, just off the pedestrianized Via Maqueda. A nondescript entrance leads you to a lift to take you to the fourth floor. Inside, prepare for Ali Baba's cave, for the whole B&B is painted and furnished in an original style. A cross between Gaudi, Dali and Detmold, it's all delightfully coloured and decorated by hand....

We stayed on this B&B for 3 nights and we're very happy with the accomodation the breakfast and the location is ideal. The owner Vito is the Sultan and a very gracious, witty and helpful person. Markets abound in each direction and many main attractions are within a 10 min walk. Its on rhe fourth floor of the building but...

conveniently located in a great area of Palermo, friendly staff and the hotel has some great character! I'd definitely recommend staying here whether you're traveling with friends, family or partners!

It´s perfect for couples. It´s uniquely designed, one that you´ll never forget, located right in the middle of all the action, a short walk away from all the famous points of interest in Palermo, and it´s run by sweet, friendly people. It´s probably the most convenient place to stay in in the city. I love that it´s just behind the...

First of all, there was no signs anywhere so we wasted about 30 minutes just to find this place, and after we found it, my husband had to phone the hotel because the door was locked. He told him that we were downstairs, asked if he could open the door for us but the guy's response was,"I'll text you", then...

We stayed in the Sultan's suite and it was kitchy fun! We dressed up in arabic costumes (made by the Sultan himself) and took funny pictures, enjoyed the XXL jacuzzi tub and it was great migling with the other guests at the kooky breakfast table. The b& is smack in the middle of a market street, like being in a...

Most of the places I've stayed in Italy have had a certain charm and Gran Sultanato is no exception, the location is convenient if traveling by foot as there is no place available to park really. The rooms were immaculately decorated and the entire place holds a certain charm, but there were a few drawbacks. While we had a decent...

I'm really in two minds about this place. In the plus column: the people are very nice, helpful, welcoming, and friendly. The rooms are quirky, completely unique, and a million miles away from the bog-standard, soulless chains you find everywhere you go. Our room had records on the wall, an old fridge in one corner, and a round bed. Things...
