The property is in the historical city centre included in the old market 'Capo'. All monuments are at walk distance: Teatro Massimo (200m); Cathedral (500m); City Hall (600m); Teatro Politeama (400m). All the city can be easily reachable by bus (Mondello beach can be reached in 20 minutes). The apartment is ideal for a cultural holiday in Palermo. Churches and monuments are just in front of your window when you wake up in the morning. The building was build in the beginning of XX century and it was renovated and refurbished in 2007. The building is very safe because it is inside the court-of-law compound and it is guarded by police 24h a day. The apartment is in the historical city centre at less than 200 mt from Massimo theatre.

If you arrive in Palermo by plane, you can take the Airport bus to the city centre (Politeama bus stop) and then walk for 600 mt towards the Court Hall. If you arrive in Palermo by train, you can take the metro (Orleans station) and then walk for 900 mt towards the Court Hall. If you rent a car (most probably at the airport), follow directions to city centre and then to the court hall. The apartment is in a pedestrian - only area but you can find payment garages at 100 mt. from the apartmentMore

Una città meravigliosa, molto ricca dal punto di vista del patrimonio artistico e architettonico, con il palazzo reale, la cattedrale, piazza pretoria e le innumerevoli chiese. Passeggiando per le vie del centro ti capita di incontrare palermitani che, vedendoti turista ti conduce in angoli della città poco battuti da altri turisti. Sono stata 4 giorni a Palermo e ho soggiornato in un appartamento del residence del Capo, sopra uno dei mercati storici della città. Il residence è in pieno centro e si può raggiungere a piedi la cattedrale, il pslazzo reale, piazza dei 4 canti, il teatro Massimo ed altri luoghi molto belli del centro storico. Un appuntamento nuovo in una struttura antica, i cui proprietari spno sono molto disponibili. Bella vacanza, ci tornerò

La mia vacanza a Palermo è stata breve e sorprendente. La struttura che mi ha ospitata è stata fondamentale perché mi ha permesso di vedere molte cose in poco tempo. Avevo paura di svegliarmi troppo presto col rumore del mercato, invece gli infissi nuovi hanno attutito molto i rumori e comunque non è un mercato particolarmente rumoroso. Al contrario è molto utile perché si possono comprare pietanze tipiche già pronte e consumare nell'appartamento dotato di cucina e forno a microonde. La pulizia è impeccabile i teli da bagno sono confezionati e sigillati in apposite buste. La gentilezza dei proprietari conferma quella proverbiale dei siciliani.

I stayed in the same apartment building for 3 weeks a few years ago and come back here as it captures the essence of ordinary life in Palermo above the El Capo market. I love the atmosphere and the chaos but be prepared for a lot of noise at night. I always take ear plugs. However, you can buy the freshest fish and incredible prepared delicacies a minute from your door. The best and freshest vegetables at incredibly low prices and vegetables you have never seen before. If you buy beer, they will offer to open it on the spot. The apartment is spacious but you may need to buy basic items like salt and pepper, olive oil etc. I think it would be great if those could be there when you arrive.

spent 6 nights at this apartment. It was clean, bed comfortable, wifi good. It look right on to the market which you could watch from the balcony the down side of this if you are a light sleeper ear plugs are needed as it starts around six in the morning. The kitchen was good for making breakfast and light meals. The shower was small and you have to wait for water to heat up again after one person has a shower. The area is a great base from which you can walk easily to all the famous landmarks in the city. The added bonus although an old building it had a lift.

Appartamento era pulito e li c'erano tutto che avevo bisogno. Quando sono arrivata a Palermo il padrone già mi aspettava. Lui è stato gentilissimo e servizievole, ho ricevuto molto informazione utile da lui. La posizione è ottima, si può raggiungere le più importante cose da vedere a piedi. Mi sono sentita anche molto sicura perché l'appartamento è situato vicino alla zona tribunale. A me è piaciuta specialmente l'atmosfera storica nei vicoli del mercato di Capo.

Appartamento nuovo e pulito. Veramente ottima la posizione, nel cuore del centro storico, da cui è possibile visitare Palermo senza utilizzare l'auto.

We enjoyed staying here and would recommend it as a great deal for a stay in the city. Know that it is a busy city though, and expect noise from the market. Booking was easy and Gabriele answered all questions promptly. We were met by his brother and then met his parents who reside in the building... all very friendly and helpful. I would only suggest that there be a dish cloth and tea towel in the kitchen for cleaning up because we made good use of the facilities and these were the only noticeable things missing!

For young people who don't mind some evening noise this may be ok but it was a bit too "in the thick of it"!for us! We certainly saw a side of Palermo we had not seen before and became lost in the car behind all the markets a couple of times! It was clean and beds comfortable if a somewhat unworkable layout-as stated in the write up- only one REAL bedroom- didn't use the kitchen to cook as it was more pleasant to eat out!

We just spent a week here and I must say it was fabulous! The location in the Capo Market makes it a great place to start exploring this amazing city. Everything you need is literally at your doorstep. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable and clean. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. If I was going to Palermo again I would 100% stay here. We walked the entire city, taking in the all the markets, the many cafes, alleys, sights etc. We walked at night with no fears and we got up each morning to coffee, pastries and paninis 1 minute from our door.....Loved here! It was easy to find after getting off the airport to Palermo bus, it was a 5 minute walk from the bus stop...easy!
