Staff was very helpful and the location is overlooking the sea. Wifi in lobby was good but in the rooms was on and off in terms of strength. Located within walking distance of many resturaunts and sites (but that is true of most of this part of Siracusa.

Overall this is a nice hotel in a quiet location right on the seafront. Ortygia is very small so easy to get around to bars, restaurant s and sightseeing locations on foot. Everywhere is clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine, if a little over reliant on ricotta and chocolate - and there was really no excuse for not having freshly... More

The location is astounding and if you pay for a room with a sea view you're in for a lovely vista. The hotel itself is very old and in need of some repair. The staff (mostly) needs some customer service training. When we arrived we were literally tossed a key. No explanation of how the hotel works. No offer to... More

The hotel is nicely situated looking out over the water. It is an easy walk to restaurants and to the main square of the town and to shopping.To visit the ruins its a bit far so one should take a taxi. Rooms are of adequate size and are clean and fairly comfortable. Bathroom lighting is too dark and there is... More

With our own balcony and an incredible sea view, there is little more that one can ask for - this hotel is a pleasure to visit (my 4th time) with friendly staff, clean, comfortable rooms (minimalist appeal) and a great location. However, with the view comes a certain amount of wind and so if there is wind on the island,... More

I was lucky enough to spend 5 nights in this tiny gem of a hotel, 10 rooms I think, managed by the friendliest staff you could ever imagine...who helped me daily with an Alitalia lost luggage problem, using the Manager's personal computer and his telephone. The hotel's location is ideal with a glorious sea view in Siracusa Ortigia. The property... More

A lovely small hotel with perfect rooms overlooking the sea, & mine had a small balcony to perch on - ideal for watching the world go by. The breakfasts were plentiful - from fresh fruit salads to omelette & bacon, plus good bread & pastries - all served with a smile & a chat. My room was plenty big enough... More

I spent in this hotel 6 wonderful days. Is well located between the Museum of art Bellomo and the Castle Maniace. Is also near Via Roma that bring you easy to the main square Piazza Duomo or to Piazza Archimede or to the open market.
