We had a lovely short break here and would highly recommend it. Our room, No 205, was large, clean, comfortable and with a great sea view. Air con was very welcome but the windows also opened which was very nice for a sea breeze. We didn't eat at the hotel apart from the nice breakfast so can't comment but I... More

We were traveling by car around Sicily and stayed in mostly 3 star bed and breakfasts and hotels. Upon arrival the staff was most welcoming and helped us with parking and choices for dining. Our room was small but comfortable and decorated nicely, with a bathroom that exceeded our expectations. It was modern, and larger than most by European standards.... More

If I was just reviewing the hotel I would give Domus Mariae 4 stars instead of 3. The location is excellent: a five minute walk from all the restaurants and bars in Ortigia in a quiet quarter. We had a sea view room which had great views and was really comfortable. The roof terrace is a great spot to relax... More

Stayed here for four nights in July 2014. Booked at the end of last year so got a great price. This proved excellent value. The double room was very spacious with high ceilings, nice furniture and good shower. The decor and furniture in the whole hotel is very classical which really suits the old converted convent, perfect! The breakfast was... More

We spent two nights here. The room was well-equipped and very clean, the staff were extremely friendly and competent. I would not pay the surcharge for a sea view again, as our room had a small window high up on the wall. The location is excellent for Cortigia, but not for the Greek theatre and the archeological zone. The restaurant... More

This is lovely hotel, with nice staff and in a good location, not to far from the centre of Syracuse and overlooking the sea. The breakfast buffet is good, with excellent coffee. I would say try and get there early ish because the breakfast room gets quite busy later on.

The Domus Mariae Benessare is a lovely hotel. Clean rooms, excellent breakfast. We had a room on the first floor with sea view. The room was large but the air conditioning was not good at cooling the room. The hotel checked it and said it was definitely working but we still couldn't get the room cool at all compared to...

Just returned from a 3 night stay and we loved it. Luckily for me I was upgraded to a room with a sea view when I arrived so that certainly put me in a good mood. Parking is chaotic so we left our car and used taxis. The room was spotless!! Sheets were changed on the third day, towels every... More

We stayed at Domus Maria in Syracuse for 5 nights in June and July 2014. The room was on an internal courtyard so we could not look at the sea but that was all that was available when we booked. The room was quiet and reasonably large. The air conditioning was necessary and effective although it tended to get a... More
