“great Palermo location”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Cristiana's apartment very much. Beds were the most comfortable of our whole trip. Lots of room to spread out. The apartment is on what we would call the 4th floor, so the breeze was great when we needed it. Since there are a lot of stairs, wouldn't recommend for people who would have trouble with that. Cristiana is a wonderful host who had time to take us around the neighborhood to some of her favorite places. Since she speaks excellent English , it was fun to get some idea of life in Sicily/Palermo from a local. The apartment is situated in a very central location to all the sights you would want to see within easy walking distance. Even the 3 major markets are not far away. of course, in Palermo, there are so many places to experience, there's always something around the corner. !

“At home in Palermo”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2013

Stayed here from the end of October to the beginning of December. Excellent location; easy access to transportation, food, sights and businesses. Perfect for an independent spirit and those whom are not seeking a typical tourist accommodation. Allows you to feel more like a traveler and not a tourist. Cristiana is a very helpful resource regarding all thing Sicilian if requested ... yet she leaves you to your own until asked. I much appreciated the orderly, immaculate apartment and kitchen. WiFi worked great. If weather is harsh the apartment can become cold as heat is provided by wood stove only. Not a problem for me but some may not find convenient. I would recommend to family and friends and will definitely return in the future.

“Bon rapport qualité - prix !”

Nous avons été ravis de notre séjour. Cet appartement est très bien situé et occupe une place centrale permettant de tout faire à pied. Calme, paisible et propre et confortable ce qui a contribué à rendre le séjour particulièrement agréable. De plus, Cristiana est bien avenante et arrangeante, préoccupée par le souci d'un bon accueil. merci pour tout. Benoit et Sopheary

“A beautiful oasis of calm in the city”

Reviewed 2 May 2013

I cannot praise this place enough. It is a beautiful restful, calming retreat in the centre of bustling Palermo. It is on a quiet piazzetta, within walking distance to the best markets, the Cathedral and lots of beautiful restaurants. The host, Cristiana, is a wonderful person, who will help you with all your needs (she even waited up half the night when our plane was diverted and we arrived in Palermo five hours late). The apartment is suited for anyone who is looking for a refreshing alternative to city accommodation - the decor is fantastic and Cristiana's lovely artwork adds to the wonderful atmosphere. If you are thinking of visiting Palermo you should definitely book your stay here - Fantastic.

This is a beautiful and homely apartment in the heart of old Palermo. It has everything you will need and the owner is such a helpful person. She is an artist and her beautiful paintings are all around you. Palermo is a crazy city but this place gives some wonderful peace away from the traffic.

“Comfortable: )”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2013

Cristiana and her brother were both very welcoming and were happy to help or provide information for anything we needed. The apartment is very big and has lots of character. It is perfectly situated within Palermo and is within walking distance to the station, tourist sites, and the supermarket.

“Homely, rustic, spiritual, warm & very Italian”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2013

Stayed at abaoaqu recently and the photos lived up to everything I imagined. A lovely space, comfy bed and a warm, rustic charm that made it extremely pleasurable to come back to at the end of the day. The location was also perfect for exploring the streets of Palermo and also very accessible to public transport if we wanted to venture a little bit further out. Free wireless was a great bonus as it allowed us to research local restaurants and things to do in the area. I strongly recommend staying here if visiting Palermo... even in the winter when you can use the real fire wood burner... cosy :0)) My only negative was that it was quite difficult to find and the online instructions could be improved upon...

“A work of art”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2013

The house is very old, very Sicilian, very beautiful. We appreciated all of the love and care that has been put into the restoration of this old-Palermo dwelling. We felt like guests in someone else's space, but very welcome and grateful guests. The house seems like an example of the best that can be done to preserve the spirit of the old buildings of Palermo, while making a comfortable and nourishing place to live in. A welcome change to the usual sterile hotel room, or modern soul-less apartments. Thanks for this opportunity to see how to live - surrounded by art and true character.

“A magic stay!!!”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2012

Much care and passion in this charming apt in the center of old Palermo. Excellent location, useful amenities, very available owner, wonderful home décor. A place to relax and breath arts and good vibes. Thanks for this magic stay!

“What a wonderful house!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2012

This stay has been one of the most valuable choices we made to organize our stay in Palermo. In no way we could expect such a spacious apt (100m2!), completely furnished and so cozy as only our own home can be. Its atmosphere made us almost wanting to stay more home rather than going out in chaotic yet charming Palermo. The hostess Cristiana has been always reachable and available, and provided us with many info beforehand, because likely she could not welcome us personally (her kind brother did that instead). We really appreciated their infinite kindness to let us enjoy the house and the town. I personally loved to wake up in the morning and see the warm light of the sunbeams coming through the many balconies, shining on the coloured walls and the plants. Cristiana offered many things which often a tourist may not want to buy for a short stay such as olive oil, coffee, etc. We only had to bother with our own food. The location is amazing, in the heart of the old town. Steps are a bit tough, especially if you carry much luggage, but it is then like entering another world where arts and nature prevail. We are already looking forward for our next stay in Spring!
