I stayed for two nights at this lovely hotel that is right on the water on Ortigia. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was terrific. The facilities are quite modern. I could not have asked for better accommodation for my introduction to Sicily.

Paid a ridiculously low price for a flight and 7 days at this hotel at the beginning of December, so thought there'd be a catch with a dodgy room or something. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Had a beautiful room with a sea view (ok you had to stand on a step) but went to sleep at night listening... More

Three comfortable nights in October, gorgeous sea view and easy access to the sea, gracious staff, very clean, great breakfast and cappuccino every morning, and easy walking to most of the sights with a bus stop across the road for those further away, what more could one desire? There's a terrific little grocery a few doors east where we'd pick... More

I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a tour of Sicily. I did not get a sea-facing room. My room faced a small internal courtyard. It was very quiet. The room was a very good size with large bathroom. The bathroom had a shower, which worked well, and no bathtub. The bed was very large and comfortable. I... More

Despite having booked our room through a "hotels" website for a great price, we were very pleased with facities and services at Royal Maniace. Each staff member (front desk to breakfast attendant) made us feel welcome. Staff were quick to respond to any request - from additional hangers to TV questions to bus and taxi info. Service always came with... More

Royal Maniace Hotel is a very nice small hotel right on the edge of the sea. Beautifully situated within easy reach of restaurants, museums,churches etc. Our room was very nice, huge 6 ft bed, lovely bathroom, excellent seaview from the small balcony and the price was extraordinary value for money. Breakfast was more than acceptable with fresh fruit juices, variety... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Maniace for five nights. It is in a charming old building on the waterfront in Ortigia. People were sunbathing and swimming on the rocky beach in front of the hotel. We were fortunate to have by far the best room in the hotel which was on the top floor and had a... More

There are lots of hotels, B&Bs and rentals in Siracusa & Ortigia, so if you've never been there, it's hard to know where to stay! Well, you can't go wrong with the Royal Maniace! It's location on the tip of Ortigia, right near the fort and the waterfront. Since Ortigia is so small, you can walk everywhere! It's 3 minutes... More

A great location right on the waterfront. A very comfortable room with very good wifi connection. Good staff. Very nice continental breakfast. Very quiet rooms with a good view of the lightening storm over the sea.
