Hotel is stunning, with excellent views of the temple (if you are lucky enough to get the right room) on the 2nd floor of the small suite on the ground floor that has its own private terrace with a view towards the ruins. Rooms were clean and well appointed, with tea making facilities. Internet is also speedy and reliable. Mattresses... More

Divine location with truly awesome views of the temples set in pristine Sicilian landscape. Our special thanks to the chef and restaurant staff. The food, wine and service was excellent. If you are planning a pedestrian visit to the temples be warned the road is busy and no pavements. Highly dangerous for walkers. Signage is completely absent. We searched for... More

From the drive up the rosemary scented driveway to arriving in our room we were not disappointed in our choice. The staff were very welcoming and helpful . The room was spotless and well appointed. The views from the property to the ruins was beautiful not to mention romantic at night. Easily accessible to the Valley Of Temples. Breakfast was... More

Our visit to the Valley of the Temples was highlighted by the wonderful stay we had at Hotel Villa Athena. The place is beautiful and situated right in the middle of the Valley of the Temple. The service was excellent. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant and the food was just average.... More

The Valley of the Temples is literally a 5 minute walk from this hotel so the convenience is unbeatable. But the rooms are seriously mediocre. They are clean but very claustrophobic. We stayed in the family suite booked through the website. It felt like a basement apartment - low ceilings and poor layout. There is a living room where they... More

Best hotel, best service, best location! The kindest staff! We had great value for booking in advance and no cancelation but they even gave us an upgrade as it was low season. No words could describe our experience there. Staying in a room that overlooked the temples was surreal. we didn't want to go to sleep! If you can, don't... More

Hotel Villa Athena was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Europe. The hotel staff went out of there way to make you feel welcome. They met us at our car for our luggage before we were even able to get out of the car, gave us a free upgrade to a room with a view of... More

Everything about this hotel is fantastic. To be able to see the temples from your room, the pool, the dinner table - everywhere and from such a beautiful hotel - you just can't beat it. The dinner at the restaurant was amazing too. We had planned to go out but enjoyed our dinner so much the first night we decided... More

With fewer than 26 rooms, Hotel Villa Athena is an incredible place to stay in Sicily. It sits on the edge of Roman ruins and even has views of the ruins from your shower. The staff was exceptionally attentive and professional and the setting beyond belief. The best place to stay, bar none in Sicily. Restaurant at hotel was equally... More

Just had a very short break and stayed at the Hotel Villa Athena for 3 nights. The view was stunning (facing the Temple of Concord). The room was clean and well equipped with a very good shower. The restaurant was first class; try the Spaghetti alla Norma. And best of all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The archeological... More
