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. The staff is very kind, helpful giving direction and also for special needs as "gluten... More

For starters the breakfast was very poor, no options to choose from. Staff were rubbish!! We asked to be upgraded to a room with a view for an extra 20 a night, only to get an awful view of a court yard and what seemed to be the smallest room on the floor (judging by the map on the door).... More

We spent two nights at this hotel during a 14-days tour of Sicily (9 hotels). This rather small hotel on the coastal street of the Ortigia Island is well located within 5 minutes walk from the cathedral square and the historical centre of Syracuse. Many rooms have a nice front or side view to the sea from tiny balconies. There... More

We had three great nights at this lovely little hotel. All the staff were so friendly and couldn't enough for you. The room was excellent as was the bathroom. We had a great little balcony allowing us to sit out and look over the bay. Local is great and parking difficult as it is on the road, but the hotel... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Royal Maniace at the end of August and were very happy with the experience. Wonderfully situated, overlooking the sea, in Ortigia, it made a very comfortable base for our exploration of this part of Sicily. Our superior room was spacious, clean, quiet and had a small balcony overlooking the bay. This old building used... More

Stayed just one night as I had an apartment booked the following day. I had noticed the hotel on my last visit and thought it would be a nice place to stay. It's an historic building which has been sympathetically restored and is situated right on the waterfront. Helpful and friendly staff, easy to find, quiet, good AC and wifi,... More

We arrived by car and were lucky to get a parking spot right in front of the hotel. We were given a room on the ground floor which had one window to the outside, which required you to climb a few steps to reach it. The room had a damp smell and we knew we weren't going to be happy... More
