We stayed 4 nights. Staff was very helpful and quickly handled our requests. Resturant suggestions were local with great food. Parking as in all of Ortiga was a hassle. Our room overlooked the sea and gentle breezes came in off the water from our balcony. The room itself was lovely and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was very good made better by... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel is functional. I was a little disappointed and expected more from a 4* hotel but hotel is perfectly functional but just lacking a certain charm/comfort. Would describe the rooms as sparce, cold and functional not at all romantic. Good: Spacious room with high ceiling Interior of hotel is nice and bright Safe Free Wifi... More

We loved our first visit to Ortigia and plan to go back. It is a lovely place to stroll around to see the sights, people-watch and eat at a different restaurant every night. The daily street market is a must-see! We had some trepidation about finding the hotel and then parking but needn't have worried. The website directions are spot-on... More

I booked for a family, elderly mother in law and husband. We were treated with great service and attention. Rooms were very clean and air conditioning very effective. The location is the best in Syracuse with a bay just outside. True value for money. I didnt expect much and was really surprised how lovely it was. Try it.

My boyfriend and I read reviews for many hotels in the area before picking this hotel, on the coast in Ortigia, the most beautiful part of Siracusa. It surpassed all our expectations! It's a beautiful, quiet hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a breathtaking view of the coast. Breakfast, served in a sunny... More

The positives. Location is good. Breakfast is ok. They park your car for free, which is very difficult in Ortygia. We had a jr suite with a huge terrace facing the sea, which we somewhat enjoyed. The negatives. The bedroom was so close to the bathroom, where my head was literally at the bathroom door. The bathroom always smelled like... More

A last minute trip to Siracusa had us looking for hotels on Ortiga. What a gem this hotel is. The hotel staff even parked our car! Clean, modern and right on the water, you could not ask for a better place to stay. Constantino gave us quite the lesson In Sicilian history at breakfast. Don't bother looking elsewhere, this is...

We had a very enjoyable stay in a room with a balcony looking onto the sea in this hotel. The location is ideal for exploring Ortigia, and is quiet, being on the sea front of the island with no noisy shops or restaurants nearby. The room was well laid out and equipped and the staff were exceedingly pleasant and helpful... More

My wife and I stayed six nights at the Royal Maniace and found it a great base from which to explore Ortygia. As previously noted by other reviewers, it is within easy walking distance of the major sites, not to mention some terrific restaurants. I would definitely recommend paying a little extra for a room with a view of the... More

Super little hotel in a terrific position a stone throw from all the major attractions. Four of us stayed between the 29th of April - 2nd of May. The hotel has recently been refurbished. It is very clean throughout. We were given a free upgrade to a sea view room offering lovely views along the coastline. I give this little... More
