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... More

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... More

For me this hotel is like home (I spent more than 10 months in total), I stayed in a lot of different rooms, the staff is very kind and professional. They also have 24h. reception and free parking. Hotel rooms are big but old, all the mattress need to be replace. Toilet is OK but also very old and sometimes... More

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... More

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,... More
