We booked rooms here as my father has stayed here during all his Agrigento visits and enjoyed talking to the owner in what little Italian he could. However, it turned out that they had sold the place and the new staff was a mixed bunch of friendly and aloof. The new owners whom I had booked with, not my dad, had said they had renovated the place. However, when we came there, the room was decent enough but without as much as a painting on the wall or anything vaguely cheerful and I would be hard pushed to call it renovated. Especially considering that they had put the prices up unreasonably much since my dad stayed there last.
Unique Quality: Having said all this negative stuff, there is not much of a choice quality wise if you want to stay in the city centre rather than down in the temple valley (Belvedere etc. seem to be much the same style) and the location is really hard to beat. In less than a minute you are in via Atenae with all its shops and with Italian breakfast at the "Sunflower" cafe and it takes five minutes to the Central station...
Very convenient situation near both main street and station where the local buse start.
Unique Quality: Obtained a ground floor en-suite room on the last night of festival! Very friendly. Coffee and croissants on sale in the morning. Quite good bargain at tratoria next door but see section on restaurants for what I thought even better.
Directions: Clearly signed from the main road, Via Atenea, down some steps.
