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

We went to Syracuse in 2013 and stayed outside of the centre and so decided to stay in Ortygia this time around. The hotel took some finding as the streets are narrow and the one way system can be challenging! The staff are warm and welcoming and the room was pleasant and comfortable. We paid extra for a sea view... More

We booked into this hotel for 1 x night and they only had a courtyard room, as all the rooms with views to the sea were taken. The room we were given was spacious and modern, with a lovely feel to same, with high ceilings and lovely drapes. With an excellent bathroom with bidet etc we were pleased at how... More

We went there because of the good reviews! Misleading... The hotel is not a 4 stars at all. Really dirty bathroom (many hair on the floor). The showers corners were brown!!! Ridicoulous TV (too small and far from the bed / equal no tv). breakfast very sad, in a dark room, very poor and service really bad (a lot of... More

Atmospheric, historical building in a great seafront location, convenient for all the sights and restaurants of Ortygia. Great reception staff. Good choice at breakfast, when available. Comfortable room with sea view (costs extra) but ours was not very big. Although most of our room was clean, the windowsills were very dusty. Breakfast service was disorganised, and breakfast staff did not... More

We stayed here for three nights in a sea view twin room. We parked in the car park across the road and just left it there as walking everywhere was easy. The room was sparklingly clean and lovely with high ceilings, fabulously draped curtains and a beautiful and well equipped bathroom. The walk in shower was terrific. Reception staff were... More

My family and I loved this hotel on Ortygia. Our room was large, tastefully decorated, updated, very clean, and pleasant. The entire facility was well-maintained. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and customer service seemed a priority. Breakfast was plentiful, fresh, and unique, including specialty cheeses and custards. There was a terrace outside the rooms on our floor... More

This was a wonderful hotel in Ortygia. Luisa at the front desk was wonderful. The room was basic but extremely clean and had a safe. Nice rooftop terrace. The breakfast buffet was all natural, fresh ingredients. There was a beautiful chapel/church at the hotel that took your breath away. Did not use the spa but heard from fellow travelers that... More
