The apartment is very nice, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We were received by the owner Salvo, who is a very friendly and nice person, and his charming and gorgeous wife Tatiana. The location is in the older part of Palermo, close to the Botanical Garden, which I came to visit, and the seaside. Donatella, who work for Casa Giuditta, collected us at the airport for a very reasonable fee and was most helpful in explaining the history of the area, and of the city. She gave us good advice for restaurants and touring. The apartment has a big flat screen Tv and internet Wifi and a view on the square of piazza della Kalsa. Salvo told me in perfect English that they have many apartments in the same building. He does his work with passion and did everything to support us. One little accident could ruin my holiday: I forgot my bag in the nearby fish restaurant with more than 300 euro and several credit card plus Iphone. I was sure my holiday could be a mess but they were looking for me and they gave my bag, intact!! I felt very protected in that part of the city, there were so many tourists around and I feel that people there live with tourists and respect them. Of course if you choose an apartment and not an hotel you must be ready to live like a local, Salvo told me that many customers choose the apartment because is cheaper but after complain that there is not 24 hour reception, buffet breakfast etc. Instead I enjoyed the in room kitchen and a big fridge and washing machine, I was traveling for long and this stop has been good to wash everything ! In short, we loved it and will return, perhaps in July 2011. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Casa Giuditta for a weekend trip to Palermo and were extremely satisfied with the accommodations. We rented one apartment private. The facilities were in good shape, all very clean and comfortable. everything looked new. The apartments are extremely safe and also located in the heart of Palermo. I would definitely choose to stay there again and would also recommend it to others traveling to Palermo. The Staff gave me a lot of precious advices of what to do and where to eat in not touristic restaurants. We liked very much to go in places where real Sicilians goes. Finally they offered us the services to go back at the airport at a very reasonable price. Recommended !
We arrived at Casa Giuditta after a long bus ride from Trapani. Donatella, a charming lady, welcomed us and even helped to carry our baggage. As I understand she speaks 5 languages ! Donatella told us a lot of the city, gave us maps and pinned the must see things (there are a lot of :) ). Our room was in the "main flat" - because there's another flat next to this one. It was nicely decorated, there's air condition of course - quite useful, because the summer in Sicily is hot. The bathroom is ok, there's a cabin (for two people), toilet, and the usual stuffs. The room was spotless, and the bed was comfortable. There was also kitchen fully equipped and washing machine. We didn't have problems with the water – plenty of hot water - also the wifi worked very good. This is not a hotel, so don't expect scrambled eggs, hamburgers, and the usual American or western European breakfast things: breakfast in italy is just a croissant and a cup of coffee. Of course if you want more there is the kitchen and a big fridge with refrigerator for self catering, so one have plenty of options to choose. There’s wireless internet inside the room, for free, I did not find it even in luxurious hotel (my last experience was to pay 5 euro per hour for wifi in a 5 star hotel ! ) We'll surely return! Thanks for everything!
Everything was fine. Only better to send and sms or e-mail to inform about arrival time, especially if you plan to arrive late.
Salvo arrived to greet us within a few minutes of our arrival.The apartment was clean,spacious,and exactly the location advertised.
It is apartments. There is no restaurant inside, but you may buy food in a market and prepare it in a kitchen. Good location in the historic center of Palermo. There are many restaurants and interesting places near the apartments. But there were problems with hot water.
The location couldn't be better, it's not a generic hotel (it's actually an apartment) on the main strip; it's about a 5-10 minute walk from "downtown" Palermo, situated on a lovely residential street with two seafood trattorias located below. We loved being able to feel like a local, and not have to check-in with hotel staff, and were given a beautiful, newly renovated room, which had a flat-screen tv, wonderful kitchenette with laundry (we did 4 loads in 5 days) and 3 beds!! It's also near the marina, literally, like a 2minute walk, which is nice to take a bottle of wine, and relax and watch the big ships sail away. There's also a big supermarket (Callefour) just up the street. highly recommend Casa Giuditta; Salvo is the best!!
The only downside would be the Wi-Fi, which wasn't always working, maybe 50% of the time we were actually in our room. Apparently residents are able to tag on to the wi-fi connection, so it's not always feasible to log on. but- you're on vacation, right? So who cares?? If you need to check your facebook status every hour, or are in town for business, you can easily find plenty of Internet cafe's around the town. For us, it wasn't a big deal.
Number on Materazzsa, 46 was pleasant, big, with good kitchen and other home appliances. It is easy to reach shops and museums. The minus unique-restaurant on the ground floor, happens is noisy also loud music.
The minus unique-restaurant on the ground floor, happens is noisy also loud music.Still a problem with plums in a bathroom room.
Nice and spacey apartment with working air-condition and wifi. We were actually given a larger one than we paid for. You will be greeted by Salvo who gave us nice recommendations for places around. We really liked the little restaurant right next to the apartment with fresh fish grill and good wine. Go for a nearby local market for breakfast, awesome experience
The apartment has an excellent location in the city center and was fully equipped.
It is located right by the water and right on the edge of historic, downtown Palermo. Some of the rooms have a small view of the Coast. You are right in the middle of a neighborhood, so you really get the feel of being in the city. The guy who runs it is kind and speaks English. Very simple to check in and out.
location is close to bus stations and city center in walking distance. bars close and a very good and affordable restaurantrestaurant just around the corner. the owner was friendly and very helpful
