Response from the owner Dear Daniela, I'm sorry about your bad personal experience at Origlione House, Absolutely this is the first time of a such bad judgment! Anyway, I'm almost sure you haven't read my description of the house in the listing before booking. If you would have read it, you would have noted that most of the points you underlined as negative, are written: 1 - 2. The flat can be heated by heater pumps, if you use the gas bottle you have to pay extra (this is because it is very expensive, more than electricity). 3. It is written that the house is at the second level without elevator and the rooms in the apartment are on three levels... Obviously there are stairs, if you don't want to go up and down maybe you could choose another house with elevator. 4. I'm used to refuse requests of guests with little children, anyway I can't flag a field of the age of my guests. Obviously it is not a house suitable for people with handicap (it is flagged). 5. I change bed linen and towels on regular basis, so they can't be "more than old" even not new (but always very well cleaned). 6. Showers are normal size and there is even a jacuzzi bath tube. comment regarding your opinion on furniture (but a curiosity, did you see the pictures of the listing?) 8.In the list you can see the location information .. Ballarò market is an important point of interest for many tourists, and anyway, about your concerns, I always give to my guests many and many local information (which you did not want to have because you were in a hurry and because you already knew everything about Palermo) this just in order to avoid unpleasant experiences that in fact have never happened.
