stayed here in March. A little chilly. Can't blame the hotel. Curious about prior complaints. Here is what I found: the toilets are not loud, they are ideal. The breakfast was excellent- best in Italy so far. Newly renovated- looks perfect and beautiful. Front desk staff: professional, helpful, pleasant. Was smart enough not to attempt to drive to hotel.

The hotel is located in Ortygia, a charming area with many bars and restaurants. Our room was huge with a view on the sea. It was very clean, it has wifi in the room. The staff was very nice and helpful. Good breakfast !

A good location in Ortiga, right on the water front. Within easy walking distance of all bars restaurants etc. Hotel was very clean and being redecorated.. Friendly staff. Breakfast was okay, ran out of food quickly but a good selection of cakes. Room was on the small side, but with a delightful balcony with sea view.

I was really very happy staying at this small nice hotel on the waterfront. Very quiet, close to all the places which should be visited. I also enjoyed eating at the nearby restaurants. The breakfast was also very good. The rooms and the bathroom are very nicely decorated and big, a balcony with a very beautiful view, and a nice... More

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
