The Charm of a Timeless Treasure Trove

Stanze al Genio isn't just any B&B; it's an alluring world steeped in the history of Italian majolica, a tradition that dates back to the 1500s. Here, you'll be immersed in a sea of nearly 5000 ceramic floor tiles, each piece telling its own unique story.


From the entrance to the dining room, you'll find these stunning tiles adorning every corner. You can explore this fascinating collection, which is sorted by age and geographical origin, every day at 3 pm in English or 4 pm in Italian.

Comfortable and Quaint Accommodation

This quaint B&B prides itself on the few comfortable rooms it houses, each distinctively furnished in line with the historical theme. Expect vintage-style furniture, painted ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and of course, the beautiful majolica tiles. These details, along with modern amenities such as double glazing and private bathrooms, create a charming blend of old and new.


Every room also comes with a balcony that offers scenic views of the bustling city or the tranquil inner courtyard.

Delicious Italian Breakfasts to Start Your Day

As a guest, you'll be treated to a delightful Italian breakfast every morning, served by the hospitable Claudio. Enjoy freshly brewed coffee, warm cornetti, juicy fruit, and delectable yogurt. For those with a sweet tooth, don't miss out on the freshly baked croissants and cannoli, a Sicilian specialty.

A Word of Advice


Before visiting, it's worth noting that the entrance can be a little tricky to locate. However, once you've found the 'small door-within-a-door', you'll step into an unforgettable world of history, art, and comfort. This may not be a luxury accommodation, but it's a memorable experience worth every penny, especially for travellers seeking an off-the-beaten-path stay.


Stanze al Genio is more than a B&B; it's a living, breathing museum that tells a timeless tale of Italian art and history. It truly stands as one of the quirkiest hotels in Palermo, offering an unparalleled opportunity to immerse oneself in the cultural heritage of the city while enjoying a unique stay.
