When we were in Agrigento the local paper had a front page article about the decline of tourists the town is attracting. And to be honest I can understand that. The superb ruins are off course worth a visit, but the beach area a few kilometers from the city is not as wonderful as many other beach areas in Sicily. The old town itself has some charms but at least the same amount of traps. We had big difficulties in finding the gems. The same goes for hotels. There are some supposedly nice hotels close to the ruins but that means missing out on the nightlife in the town, and for my wife and me that's half the stay wherever we go.
Hotel Amici was one of few hotels in the middle of the city. Staff was helpful and very nice. Rooms were clean. We were surprised when we even had a balcony (not much view though). The hotel is in need of general refurbishment but there isn't anything wrong the furniture, it's just that it looks old. We paid 75 Euro per night so price compared to what we got wasn't all bad. Breakfast? Yes, but not good. We dropped it for the second day of our stay.
A little tip, we saw some really nice B&B's in the old town. Modern furnishing, good prices and even views. If I had to visit Agrigento again I think that would be the value for money bet.
