Atenas was a great location to stay to catch the sites of Sevilla. Beware though, you WILL get lost on the streets in this area (Santa Maria section). Even with a map, it is nearly impossible to navigate without getting lost.
Atenas was clean and comfortable. As usual for most Spanish establishments, the place reeked of smoke -- mainly because the workers were always smoking. As long as my room door was shut, it was fine.
One complaint - we tried to check in on our first night, and though my Let's Go book said the average rate was 75-80 euro for a triple, the innkeeper tried to charge us $130 or so, saying it was because the upcoming Semana Santa festivities (though he said they never charge 75-80 for the room). We decided it was too much and went somewhere cheaper for the night. However, we returned the next morning and requested the same room for 2 nights -- this time speaking to a woman. We were charged 80 euro per night this time...the original price I had thought. Clearly the guy (owner I believe) was trying to screw us!! This was made obvious when he came in later and we overheard him speaking in Spanish to the woman, yelling at her for charging us that price, and then heard him quote someone else on the phone the absurd rate again.
Though our experience was pleasant, this really turned me off to this place in the future.
