“Good location”
Reviewed April 27, 2009

Secure underground parking, basic rooms, good position (close to the main attractions and the ring road).
The staff was helpful, but not very friendly. The wireless internet service is available at rooms, but not free, 3 EUR/30min.
Breakfast was boring: same in every day (croissant, jam, honey, cornflakes, ham, cheese).
Hotel surroundigs is not very reassuring, but we had not any problem.
Many groups (students, tourists) stayed at the hotel, rooms on the 6th floor are quiet and undisturbed.

We stayed for 1 night in this modern, cheap and clean hotel.
The room wasn't luxurious but all the basic things were ok.
The position is quite good to see the city (very near to the underground station with trains to the airport) and the staff was kind to us.

Reviewed September 11, 2004

We stayed at the Athenaeum for three nights at the end of August 2004. The room was quite large and well equipped if rather basic in terms of decor. The breakfast was okay but the evening meal was very good and excellent value for money. The staff all spoke at least some English and were all very helpful and friendly. The area around the hotel is not great (little of Palermo appeared to be) but it is well positioned for access to the central sights being only 5 minutes walk from the Porta Nuova and the Roal Palace. It is also easy to find when arriving by car and reachable from the ring road without getting entangled in the traffic of central Palermo. It has a good (free) underground garage. The hotel is fully wheelchair accessible (though central Palermo certainly isn't!). Recommende as good value for money
