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

This is a very nice hotel, the quality of the renovation is excellent and the finish of the fixtures and fittings is top notch. I must admit that we found the one way streets of Ortigia very hard to navigate and consequently we ended up parking in a back street nearby as it was the nearest we could get to... More

I have got a room with a small balcony with sea view which was really great. The room was spacious and always clean. Breakfast was not bad at all. I have checked many hotels before making my booking, and Royal Maniace is definitely the best combination of price and quality in Ortigia.

We just got back from 5 nights at the Royal Maniace Hotel - a wonderful experience! Location- picturesque and lovely, easy walking distance to anything on Ortigia. The room- spacious and simply decorated, comfy beds, wonderful marble bathroom, well stocked with amenities. We were on the ground floor, there was a little stone staircase that led to a window overlooking... More

Royal Maniace Hotel Ortigia, Siracusa Sicily Italy is in a great location right at the seafront of Ortigia Island. With all the one way roads on the island not an easy location to find initially but once you get there (and you can park right in front of the Hotel) you don’t need your vehicle anymore. It’s walking distance from... More

My husband and I just got back from a stay at the Royal Maniace. I had been quite excited about staying at this beautifully restored Hotel right on the sea-front. Sadly, our short stay here was marred for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I had specifically requested a parking space since we would by traveling to Sicily by car and... More

We arrived at the Maniace kind of late, it was almost 10 pm. The recepcionist was extremely kind and even managed to obtain a special parking permit for us since we were travelling by car and the hotel does not have its own parking (as is the case in most hotels on the Ortigia Island). The reception area is delightful... More
