Very nice property in great location and good parking close by, excellent views out over the bay from certain rooms. Delux rooms are large though bathroom is quite small, breakfast is ok for Italian standard through the breakfast room is a little cramped. All in all a nice place to stay but mainly for the room views.

This is a very nice hotel, we booked a deluxe room but it was not as expected. It was big but basic, small window with outside terrace area looking out to sea, no sun on balcony in the afternoon just in morning. If they did room only it would be better as breakfast was not what we enjoy. Parking a... More

Our room had a little balcony overlooking the ocean - beautiful view. The hotel is close to everything on Ortigia - which is tiny anyway! The breakfast is adequate - with espresso available on request.

What a setting! I love staying on Ortigia and the Royal Maniace is in a great spot overlooking the sea close to the tip of the island. All the rooms are different in their layout and if you are lucky you will have a room with a balcony facing out to sea. On this occasion I didn't but that didn't... More

We visited Sicily as part of a group, moving around the island, and stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014. We had a 3 room suite with a large balcony and overlooking the harbour. The style was elegant Italian and the rooms were very clean and fresh. The only complaint we might have had was that neither bedside light... More

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel, it was the highlight of our stay in Sicily. The location is perfect in the heart of Ortigia. The hotel is lovely, recently refurbished. Our room had a nice view on the sea. It was very spacious, modern and comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful with excellent and varied pastries. The staff... More

Nice hotel with super views over the sea. Walking distance to all sites. Friendly staff. Parking can be difficult, but the staff is very helpful. The breakfast is about average. Coffee from a machine and no fresh juices. But again, friendly staff.

Lovely hotel, recently refurbished. We enjoyed the junior suite (room 111) with lounge, bedroom, compact shower room and lovely balcony overlooking the sea. Sheets and pllowcases perfectly laundered every day. Superclean. Fantastic location, right in the heart of Syracuse and ideal to visit all the local sights. The room was immaculately clean and quiet with a comforatable bed. Breakfast was... More

We stayed for two nights last week. The hotel has a fantastic location and our view was wonderful from room 110. That's where the good bits end, I found the hotel to be very average - the decor is extremely dated (early 90s) and a bit shabby in parts (like a stained, faded old bedspread and tired, chipped old furnishings)....

On arrival at the Hotel Maniace Luca on reception very helpfully came and moved our car into a space for us which set the tone for the whole of our stay. The staff were all friendly and very helpful which really allowed us to settle in and enjoy the hotels facilities. Our first room had a small balcony but given... More
