Porta di Castro B&B reviews

8.2 Very Good

This inn is very well situated, a few steps away from the royal palace and the palatine chapel, however on a small street that seems to be menacing, especially for late evening returns. The reception and service are impeccable (Alessandro is most agreeable). The street is very busy most of the time but the rooom that we hand had good soundproofing to ensure our good comfort.

Alessandro was a wonderful host. His recommendations for restaurants was great. His B&B is an eclectic high quality collection of amazing objects; this man has real asthetic taste. It was worth the price just to stay there. The breakfasts were quite good too. He also arranged for our taxi from the airport (a driver he knew) and made sure the price was fair. He looked out for us in more ways than I can list & was a wealth of information on Palermo. You just have to be prepared for Palermo. It is a big, busy and a bit gritty place. Let Alessandro be your conduit for an interesting & enjoyable stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Porta di Castro, Alessandro was a great host and made us very welcome. The breakfasts were good and Alessandro and his staff were great in making sure we had everything we wanted to eat and drink before our days sight seeing. Porta di Castro is well situated to get around the city but if it is a quiet spot your after it's not for you!!

We would like to thank the hotel staff for their warm welcoming on our arrival in Sicily. The information we got from Alessandro regarding the places to see and the local restaurants to have our dinner was extremely valuable. If we had another chance to visit Palermo again we would definitely stay at Porta di Castro!

We stayed in the B & B Porta di Castro for a total of 11 days in two parts. Although we only booked and paid for a room we were given an apartment at no extra cost. This was typical of Alessandro and his team who were extremely welcoming and helpful, not just about the accommodation but everything else too; nothing seemed too much trouble. Both apartments were very quiet despite the traffic noise in the street. We were walking distance from many sights, including the fabulous Cappella Palatina. And there were lots of buses from the nearby Piazza Independenza. I found driving in Palermo pretty challenging and parking in the centre is very difficult. Overall a really excellent B & B in a fascinating city.

We stayed in Palermo for 2 nights during the first week of October 2012. Thank you Trip Advisor. We stayed in Porta di Castro basing purely on the excellent reviews. The place is fantastic. This is more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. The location of Porta di Castro is the best, just next to the train station and close to the main sights. In this B&B you feel like visiting a friend! Alessandro is absolutely amazing, he's extremely good host: preparing fresh and tasty breakfast, giving us valuable tips and suggestion for exploring the city and dining out. We are so grateful for his hospitality. Our room was beautiful, very clean and decorated in a tasteful manner. The bed was comfortable and the shower was wonderful. We received a fresh bottle of water in the room each day. There is free Wi-Fi. I wish we had stayed longer! Thank you Alessandro and Massimo!
