Convento San Giovanni Battista (SIP107)

Palermo Sicily
Book Now

House of the Ordine Frati Minori

Located in Baida, with access to the heart of the Sicilian capital, this is a highly recommended lodging with plenty of history. It provides a fine contrast of modern and traditional design as well as a great Stay for some well needed relaxation in the breathtaking gardens.

The venue is only a short bus trip away from Palermo's major attractions like the Palermo Cathedral and the Norman Palace.
 
Rated 3.9 out of 5
The monastery is in a quiet location with outstanding views, however this means access is mostly by car. The rooms are comfortable. People were friendly and it helped to have an outstanding restaurant on site for dinner. Breakfast was simple.

Great place with a beautiful view, very friendly and helpful staff, easy access to public buses, comfortable room, sometimes a bit noisy and breakfast could improve. Overall great!

The place is wonderful and the staff were most obliging, though we did need our Italian quite often. The dinners at 10 euros were very good value, though tough on vegetarians. The breakfast was rather complained about, and really should be improved.
- Hertfordshire, United Kingdom (October 2014)
Public transport to-from the city center was easy, practically at the door. Breakfast was meager. View from the terrace was incredible. All-in-all, it was a good experience and inexpensive. We appreciated being out of the city center.
