Kalamarina rooms


An immersion in ancient and modern Palermo

Kalamarina Rooms was born in 2007 inside the historic Palazzo Fatta built in the 16th century. From the balconies of the Maestrale and Grecale rooms you can admire the marvelous Piazza Marina, the Fontana del Garraffo from 1561, the Villa Garibaldi and the foliage of the centuries-old Ficus Macrophylla – the largest in Europe! – and a glimpse of the Cala, the ancient port of the city. The balconies of the other two rooms, Scirocco and Libeccio, overlook via Bottai in front of the Trabucco della Torretta palace, an 18th century noble palace.

Experiences and feedbacks

Very comfortable structure in the center. The very large and comfortable room for two and a little dog. Friendly and very helpful staff. Room cleaning is daily and flawless! The car can be parked safely by purchasing the ZTL pass. I highly recommend it !!

Simona (da

Spacious room overlooking Piazza Marina. The owner is a kind and helpful person and above all he has the La Cambusa restaurant just below the B&B where you can eat well at fair prices. More than positive experience

Patrizia (da

Strategic position to visit the center. Large room with air conditioning (essential for an August in Palermo). Breakfast bar with excellent and abundant agreement with the structure, wide choice for savory and sweet breakfasts. Excellent quality / price ratio considering the high season.

Elisa (da

Great view of the square and the park. You are a stone’s throw from the main street with shops. The structure overlooks a beautiful square. Breakfast is served in the bar opposite and includes coffee and croissants. Lovely place.
