Who are we

Architects and interior designers created, in a nineteenth century building, a modern but at the same time classic and rustic structure, furnished with all the necessary comforts for an unforgettable stay.

The design, curated in each detail and the proximity to the most important locations of the city centre of Palermo make the B&B Arsenale Porto the perfect place where to stay for both business trips and for those who want to visit the wonders of Palermo.

Parking and No ZTL

The building is located in a road with a large space where you’ll be able to comfortably park your car and unload your luggage. We remind, also, that we aren’t in a ZTL zone (Zona a traffico limitato: limited traffic zone).

Close to the harbour and well connected

When you step out of the harbour, you’ll find right away and in very little minutes the Via dell’Arsenale, which is connected with various buses and the subway stop “Giachery” that will allow you to reach the city centre.


The single and double rooms are made to guarantee our guests privacy and relax. The spaces division allows, furthermore, to create small apartments with baths and private kitchen space.

Design and comfort

The common areas for breakfast with small household appliances and cooking zone make the B&B Arsenale Porto an ideal structure for long periods of stay as well.

The benefits of the B&B Arsenale porto

Your relax. Our Mission

The organization of the spaces and the privacy of the structure guarantee the maximum relax for single travelers, couples or groups.

It’s possible to book single rooms or even small apartments equipped with kitchen and private services.

The great benefit of the B&B Arsenale Porto is therefore to be a real “oasis” even if in the proximity of the city centre, it’s located inside a baglio, a typical Sicilian fortified structure with a large courtyard with large spaces, free parking and a garden where it’ll be possible to spend time in the open in absolute relax.

The rooms

With the recent renovations we have realized spacious rooms and organized the spaces to create areas with single beds but also double beds for couples and families.

The organisation of the rooms and common areas allows, as well, to create small apartments full of all the necessary services to host even large groups with, still, the most privacy.

We offer comfortable and well designed rooms to make your stay pleasant and relaxing.

Kitchen and common areas

The structure allows to make use of spacious common areas that in case of need can be limited for the use of groups that stay in nearby rooms to create small apartments.

The simple style, rustic but modern and rich of comforts guarantees relax and privacy for whoever wants to enjoy the kitchens and the common living spaces.

The mezzanine

The mezzanine with the double bed, the kitchen and the rustic style has been created for those couples that look for an original, comfortable ambient but rich in style.

The led lights in the bedroom are perfectly combined in the space with the natural rustic walls in full shabby chic style: the attention to the details without overlooking the comfort of a modern space are the strong points of the B&B Arsenale Porto.

The outside

The B&B Arsenale Porto is made in a rustic style and it’s born in the inside of a building entirely renewed with a large and well lit inside courtyard.

The B&B offers many services and is located in a strategic spot for who arrives in Palermo through ship: close to the harbour and well connected thanks to the bus stops, you will be able to visit the centre of Palermo while making use of a structure ideal for families and a group of tourists.

The large common area and the garden opposite to the murales are furnished with benches, small tables and comfortable deckchairs where you can spend time in the open, have a snack, read a book or listen to some music.

The suite “Messina” with the Jacuzzi

For who is looking for amenities and comfort besides functionalities, it’s possible to book the double suite with an hot tub. A fabulous couple sized Jacuzzi is waiting for you to spend with your partner a weekend in absolute relax while getting lost in a personal, quiet and far from the city’s chaos area.

The suite “Messina”, furthermore, is furnished with a small inside balcony which opens on the small garden and the stunning murales which has been specifically made for the B&B Arsenale Porto. From the balcony you’ll be able to have a comfortable breakfast or a snack on the external table.
