My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and were completely wowed by the view, and the location. The room decor was not particularly my taste, but it didn't detract from our time here. The staff was extremely helpful, and we really enjoyed the location as it allowed us to wander through Ortygia easily.

We picked this hotel because of the great TA reviews.We are in complete agreement with all the reviews. This hotel had no negatives for us. . We drove a rental car and after a few minutes figuring out the driving routes on old Ortygia we arrived at the hotel and the staff took care of parking the car for us.... More

I had already decided to give this hotel a 5-star review before I left. It is on the water, central in Ortygia (the old city), with 18 foot ceiling rooms, and spectacular views. The people at the front desk were very helpful, and loaned us guidebooks to the city for our 4 day stay. However, I was most impressed when... More

We stayed here in mid march for 4 nights . This hotel was superb. The most charming, helpful staff, lovely girls , who parked our car, changed our room to One with side balcony, still glorious sea view and a fabulous bathroom. Lying in large comfortable beds listening to the waves crashing against the sea wall was a thrilling experience.... More

Hotel Livingston is located along the waterfront in old Ortygia and a sea view room is definitely worth the extra cost. This hotel has just about everything you can think of to make your stay more comfortable - clean, spacious rooms, very comfy beds, slippers and robes, cool bathroom with glass sink and Jacuzzi shower, wonderful spicy orange scented toiletries,...

Good location, in a nice area of Siracusa, near to restaurants, bars, the Cathedral (Duomo)... We had a large and well equipped double room, with hydromassage, large bed, nice furniture... Good breakfast at the fourth floor, with a nice view. Free car parking (although on the street) available. On the down side, poor wi-fi coverage in the room and place... More

Comfortable room, we had a junior suite, with sea view. Bit on the expensive side. Easy access to all of Otigia. We didn't eat in the hotel as we were out and about with lots of good restaurants nearby. The breakfasts however were ok with a wide choice, though not much off the 'full english' list. Very friendly guy running... More

The Hotel Livingston is so small and cute. Sun welcomes in every day. The sea is close to the hotel and the impression is that the room flows into the sea. The room and bathroom is clean. Service at the reception is ok. You can not use the SPA at the evening because is closed. The breakfast is on the... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night at the end of a 10 night stay in Italy. It has a good location by the sea in Ortygia Island and was fine for a night but I expect there are better places to stay! We arrived after a 3 hour drive and no one was on reception, with a queue... More

This hotel is in a terrific location on Ortygia island with relatively good public parking facilities (bearing in mind that you are in a very old city). A bit hard to find, at least for our sat-nav which tried to bring us directly to the hotel through a maze of small streets, some with limited access or residents-only signs, rather... More
