Botique B&B Vintage ★★

A boutique hotel in the heart downtown Palermo's La Kalsa district

This used to be a creaky old pensione good only for its location bang in the heart of the historic center at the harborside edge of the Kalsa, half a block from both the main drag Corso Vittorio Emanuele II (refer to it as Il Cassaro for instant Palermo street cred) and the shady, exotic park of cafe-lined Piazza Marina.

In 2003, however, the Letizia was completely overhauled to become the Sicilian equivalent of a boutique hotel: Persian rugs on parquet floors, rustic beamed ceilings, sumptuous bedspreads of fabrics in ribbon-candy or heraldic embroidered patterns, and a mingling of arte povera wood furnishings and modern functional units.

Letizia's neighborhood, filled with the crumbling palazzi of its 18th-century golden age, has also recently undergone a successful rehabilitation and is now far safer and more salubrious than in years past. The prices are, for downtown Palermo, phenomenal (and rooms start a bit cheaper online, from €85).

Even the suite (room 105, with its little terrace courtyard and potted mandarin tree) goes for just €124–€150.
