“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
If this stylish guesthouse were just a couple of blocks down the road, it would probably cost double the price. It's situated on the outer edges of Palermo, meaning you have to walk a little bit to be in the centre of the action, but there are advantages to being on a quiet residential street. This 1920s property is the converted childhood home of owner, Lucila, a former gymnast, who transformed it with her husband, Fernando, a former soap opera star. It's filled with arty touches and retro furniture, plus the large back garden provides a welcome oasis.
