We stayed here for a week whilst visiting relations in Southern Italy. Our room was luxurious and very reasonably priced. It was spacious and clean, with very high ceilings and huge windows overlooking the brilliant blue ocean. Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was the best. Staff were friendly and helpful and provided maps and information about the area. We found... More

The staff at this hotel were fantastic. The ladies on the reception desk were very helpful with making local recommendations. But my hat goes off to the bellboy Paolo ... he accompanied me around Syracuse in my hire car to help me get the badge and antenna replaced (which were stolen on a brief stop in the neighbouring town of...

We needed to break our journey to Marina a Di Ragusa for one night and Ortagia looked a good place. After much searching around several good options we chose The Livingston and we are glad we did. A great location overlooking the sea, parking provided outside (a real plus) and wonderful, high ceilinged rooms that are a good size and... More

Highly recommend. Our room was elegant, spacious, and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large; it had a jacuzzi and spa shower. The water view from our room was spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with the usual Sicilian spread of pastries, cheeses, fresh cold cuts, fresh fruit and juices, etc.

Loved this hotel from the moment we stepped through the door. The staff were incredibly helpful and initial parking problems were dealt with swiftly. The decor is top notch and our room was most impressive, ,spotlessly clean and with a long balcony overlooking the sea. Any road noise was obliterated by excellent double glazing and the ac worked well. Good... More

We booked a room with ocean front view and a small (standing only) balcony. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated but pretty small and pricey, however, we decided the view and location was worth it. We had free parking right outside the hotel and never used the car while there since the island is very walkable. The road passed... More

The Hotel Livingston is set in a beautiful location and if you have a sea view the view is lovely. The rooms are spotlessly clean and ours was very comfortable if a little small. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent by Sicillian standards. Parking can be arranged and is worth while booking in advance.... More

Great location on the waterfront. The single rooms are quite small and awkward with a double bed but adequate. The decor is old and the beds are hard. The single room on the bottom floor was very dark. The bathrooms are clean. The wifi wasn't very good in a few rooms but works well in the lobby despite dropping out... More

We stayed in Ortigia for 3 nights which was more than enough to enjoy every bit of this tiny island. The hotel was wonderful with great staff well appointed rooms. Even parking :-) Spa pool is OK but you aren't going to spend hours in there !! Saturday evening the Duomo Ortigia Piazza turns Madrid esq. Brilliant. Great place for... More
