Yvonne is a wonderful host and her apartment was the perfect base for three women. She set the upstairs room with two twin beds, per our request. When we arrived, she found us several blocks away, where the taxi had dropped us, and helped to get us to her apartment. The apartment is beautiful; clean, comfortable and well stocked. She introduced us to how to make coffee in the moka coffee pot, which is wonderful. The welcome goodies and supplies she left for us were much appreciated as well! The two bedrooms were very comfortable as was the spacious living area, but the outdoor space, overlooking the beautiful dome of the Chiesa next door, was where we spent most of our time. Yvonne provided lots of suggestions, tour information and reference guides, which helped us to plan our days.
The apartment is steps away from the bustling Ballaro market with a myriad of food and goods for sale. It’s also walking distance to the Quattro Canti with the beautiful Fontana Pretoria, the churches of San Cataldo and La Mortorana, Piazza Bellini and the hop-on-hop-off tour buses, allowing easy access to all the top attractions Palermo has to offer. The apartment allowed us to enjoy being part of the local community, getting used to the daily routines, exploring the market, shops and eateries in the area. We highly recommend this as your base while exploring Palermo if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture. Yvonne is a perfect host, just a text or call away, should you have any questions or need anything. Thank you for sharing your apartment Yvonne!
We had a very nice stay in the apartment. I brought up a couple of things with the owner Elena and she was very responsive to my suggestions to improve a couple of things.
I would encourage renting this apartment...also her nephew Andrea was great...very helpful and responsible and even ordered a taxi for us to the airport on our final day.
