Rated 3.8 out of 5
I had asked about arrangements for transportation to the airport because I had a 6AM flight. I was told that the nuns would arrange transportation for me. The day before I was to leave, I spoke to someone other than Mother Superior Eleonora. The woman answered the doorbell at the monastery and I asked about arranging a taxi to get to airport for the next morning. I understood her to say that she was going to drive me and that we would leave at 2AM. The next morning she did not show up at 2AM and no one answered the doorbell to the monastery. I waited for over 45 minutes outside and finally decided that I had to walk to the train station where I had seen a taxi stand because I could not risk missing my flight. I had to take the keys to my building and my room with me because there was no place to leave them. I have since mailed them back addressed to Mother Superior. This was somewhat disappointing after such a lovely stay.

I loved staying at Collegio di Maria di Palermo al Giusino. The nuns were friendly and accommodating. The location was in the center but away from a busy street nearby. I walked everywhere. The place had everything a busy traveler needs. I’d definitely come back again.

I would like to thank the Nun who took care of us while we stayed there. She was extremely nice and accommodating. Our flight was delayed and we ended up getting to Palermo at 1 am in the morning. We called the Nun, who welcomed us at that hour and showed us to our room. I would highly recommend this place anyone who would like to visit Palermo.

It was so central and convenient and the nuns were very welcoming and friendly.

The nuns were very kind. They only come to the reception area when you ring their doorbell and then they will walk over. I couldn't get out the first morning as no one had shown me the door release button hidden away a bit off to the right of the door. Spacious rooms. Great location.

I really appreciated this option, the location, and the lovely Sisters at the college who were patient and very warm with me when our language was not shared.
