While the hotel is about a mile away from the heart of the city, at $80/night including free parking and breakfast, with clean rooms with AC, a fridge and a quiet balcony, one can hardly go wrong. Competent, pleasant staff who speak English. I'd go back anytime.

Located in a not too elegant corner of Palermo, the Albergo Athenaeum was according to expectations, especially for a visitor who had business with the university and stayed there for a couple of nights. Room and service (with the exception of an elevator problem that was solved relatively quickly.) as well as price were in harmony, so that a hotel that can be recommended without any special remarks.

This is a nice inexpensive hotel near the university, and near many of the tourist attractions. It is not on a main street, so it is a bit more quiet. The rooms were moderately large, and the breakfast was better than average. The staff people were helpful and informative. I would definitely stay here again.

Yes the hotel is situated in a typical side street of an Italian city. Expect the neighbors to have washing hanging from the line. It offers all the comforts, sizable rooms with balconies, fast internet and free parking. Where it lost the fourth star is that the breakfast room on Sunday morning had no clean tables and everything had to be re-brought. No cheese. No bowls for fruit. The air conditioner didn’t work either. Otherwise centrally situated.
