It's a 3 star, so don't expect too much, but the staff were excellent, helpful, friendly, mostly tried very hard to speak in English, which for me was useful. Guiseppe and Guisepp in particular, and Salvo Montalato, all especially helpful. We walked around this capital city, guided often by Salvo and Guiseppe advice. It's a great place to visit, masses...

This was the first hotel I stayed in with a school historical tour. The hotel is a good 15 minute walk to the center of Palermo. The air conditioning did not work and more than half the light bulbs in the room did not work. The bathroom was clean, but the shower stall leaked a lot. Of all the hotels...

The Athenaeum Hotel is the perfect place to stay when vacationing on a budget in Palermo. The service of the staff is A+, we asked for recommendations of places to go, things to do and got great suggestions. Enjoy the bargain!

Nice hotel on the outside, nice lobby. Location is a 10 minute walk from the center, but the road to get there is busy and very unpleasant. Rooms are nicely decorated and reasonable size. Bathroom is basic and narrow. People at reception are friendly. Breakfast was bad; too much sweet stuff. Big plus: free parking.

We were moved to this hotel by Easy Jet Holidays as our original hotel had unexpectedly closed. Easy walking distance from the metro,and anywhere in Palermo for that matter. My wife was quite ill at the beginning of the trip and the staff were extremely caring and helpful. The hotel restaurant was a life saver as was the nearby pizza...

I stayed in this hotel with my husband for 5 nights. As soon as we arrived in this hotel we were welcome nicely by all the staff. Our room was located on the 6th floor of the building. The room was a nice size with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The room was cleaned everyday. It was not...

We found this hotel to be a wonderful departure from many other hotels we've stayed in during our time (1 year) of living & traveling in Italy. The room was comfortable, clean, included most amenities you'd expect, AND a refrigerator! That's something we haven't encountered at any other authentic Italian hotel. This means that instead of paying 1 to 4...

The hotel is in a residential are. When you look outside, you are among the locals. There are some nice places nearby to get some authentic sicilian food. It is also within walking distance to many of the sights. It is true that the hotel is about a 20 minutes walk from the Duomo and also the main train station,...
