Albergo Athenaeum, Palermo
No three star hotel!!!!
I needed a hotel close to the University Hospital and this one was one of the closest. The hotel is in a run down area of Palermo and I didn't feel save walking outside after dark. The hallway outside my room had a motion light with one bulb that did little to illuminate the hallway. Everything in the room was old and needs updating. The water temperature of the shower was cold and the shower head sprayed water out of the side. The mattress was very hard and it felt like I was sleeping on a piece of plywood. The small refrigerator made noise all night but it helped drown out the noises outside the hotel. I had booked three nights but ended up staying only one as I checked out first thing in the morning and found a nicer hotel. No where near a three star hotel. Rating was very misleading.

Very Good8.0
Good choice
Well located if you are driving in and want a place to park your car. We then walked into Palermo - the Palatine Chapel is about 10mins walk away, and the other attractions are within at most 25 mins walk. We had a room on the 6th floor with a balcony view onto the Norman Palace and down to the sea. We didn't walk around at night as the hotel is located in smallish residential streets, but could easily have taken taxis if we'd wanted to.

An enriching experience
This is the poorest 3star hotel we have stayed in many visits to Italy. The staff were largely indifferent in their service. The internet had very poor connectivity, and had to be renewed with new and different log in details every day. WE booked a double bed and the best the hotel was able to offer were twin beds. Their was no ceiling light making it very difficult to read despite their being four shaded table lamps. The neighbourhood, of the hotel was appalling with streets full of rubbish with litter, dust, building works dilapidated housing stock around etc. and finally the breakfast by my previous experience was at best just satisfactory. I will not recommend this as a 3 star hotel.
