This is a great place to stay, 150 meters behind Teatro Massimo, and within walking distance to most of the best sights in Palermo. It's directly over a local market where fish, fruit, vegetables and meats are sold. Within a couple of minutes you can walk to bars, restaurants, and night markets in front of the Teatro. The apartments are... More

I liked the hotel and the location, it's simple but had everything that you need except stuff to cook for two or three people. It's on the front of an old street supermarket we a lots of vegetables with very good flavor, but I you don t like to much people don't go , choose a more peaceful place

The apartment was simple, spacious and very well located over the market and the centre of Palermo. Close to the opera and shops. We were very comfortable. The apartment was not serviced for the week we were there but rubbish was taken at our request.

The location is quite nice! But the kitchen equipment is very-very limited (one cup, for an example). Also it could be nice to have some tea, coffee, sugar, etc... wifi was available only in one corner. During 4 days of our stay they never-ever cleaned the room.

Clean, great location (street markets were extremely nice and it was great to out and find fresh food just outside the hotel), great price. Nice staff. Special thanks to Mukesh! Improvments: better kitchen gadgets for cooking and dish washing would have been nice.

We stayed for 4 nights and found the accommodation to be very convenient. The fact there is a market right outside the window seemed a bit of a minus to start with, but it actually was great. They don't start up until later in the morning so there was no noise first thing. It also made for some interesting people... More

Good location. Near the market, you can always buy fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and of course fish. The apartment was comfortable, good mattress in the master bedroom, a TV with an HDMI output, the kitchen is also fully equipped, i had no problems with cooking Bed linen and towels were changed 2 times a week I think that is enough....

This is a great location for a visit to Palermo. All the main sites in the city are within walking distance. Great situation in the Capo Market where you can get all you need. Accomodation is fine, plenty of room, although shower is a bit small.

All the photos published on the website of that place are real- all facilities are indeed well equiped, rooms are clean. It is indeed a city centre. You can go by foot almost everywhere excluding sandy beach which is a few km out of city. There's a fish and fruit market just by the street on porta carini so you... More
