Our apartment, located in the building of the historical Hotel Orientale, is an extraordinary heritage of Seventeenth-century architecture, carefully restored respecting its artistic frescoes.
Our apartment is located within the historical Palazzo Lungarini reachable through a beautiful staircase.
The living and dining room is wide and bright, with a big and comfortable sofa, a dining table, free Wi-Fi, TV, and a bookcase.
The kitchen and the bathroom are decorated with tiles, comparable to majolicas, but typical of sicilian tradition. The kitchen is equipped with oven and stovetop, refrigerator, freezer, wooden furnitures, kettle. There is a washing machine too.
Entering the wide and wonderful bedroom the real soul of the palace can be perceived. The astonishing artistic frescoes are all around the walls and the ceiling, making the room a very noble sleeping area. Two great windows light up the room, equipped with a double bed, two little sofas, an elegant dresser with a mirror, a wardrobe, and a vintage desk.
The balcony overlooks on Via Lungarini, typical alley of La Kalsa neighborhood, in the heart of Palermo.

Casa degli Affreschi is the perfect choice to share places and customs of locals.
The apartment is located in the heart of the historical Kalsa neighborhood, just few stones away from the Foro Italico seafront meadows, the "Cala" marina with its cafes and ice-cream parlours, and close to many historical monuments and cultural sites as Palazzo Steri, the Abatellis Museum, the Spasimo, the Botanical Gardens and many others.
Just outside the front door of the building you can mingle in the heart of the oldest Palermo district: alleys and squares, noble monuments and churches, clashing in harmony and contradiction with local market stalls, with their colors, aromas and flavors, including some of the city's best street food, and finally the city cultural soul of museums and theaters.
Finally, at walking distance from our apartment you can find several restaurants, and find yourself at ease both if you are looking for gourmet dining and for a typical local "trattoria".
