She met us at the station and returned us there at the end of our stay. Apartment had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean. Good location close to Balaro market, so, easy to walk to most of Palermo’s attractions. Won’t suit everyone as the area is quite dirty with piles of rubbish everywhere. We would definitely stay there again if visiting the city. Yvonne’s food recommendations were excellent as well, particularly if you want to experience authentic palermo food.

Carlo is very approachable owner, and very helpful and kind, and answers any of your questions promptly. We would recommend this to anyone who would like to sample Palermo's delights!
