Very nice B&B with a view of the piazza. Nice room, nice bathroom, nice host, and nice breakfast. Terrific city to visit with tons of things to do. Restaurants are plentiful with terrific sunset views. My only reason I would not go back is because the city is not parking friendly to visitors. They turned all the parking into resident... More

Fantastic location, all main sights of Siracusa are in walking distance. The hotel is in the middle of the city center, because of that our room was rather noisy. They are intending to change the glass windows for double-glass after summer, hopefully this will help a bit. Because the location is right in the middle of the Ortigia, parking is... More

This Boutique B&B was very centrally located with free parking about 10 minutes away or you could park in a covered car park for 10 euros per day. It was noisy at night, but being so central you really should expect some noise. Florianna was a perfect host in everyway. The bed was very comfortable and room modern and clean... More

We spent 8 days at the centrally-located Archimede Vacanze, making it a base for exploration of the island and the area west of Siracusa. Overall, we were very happy with our stay. This is a very clean, tastefully decorated, four room B&B under the management of the affable and very helpful Sra. Flo. We had a large, nicely decorated room... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at this nicely situated B&B right on Piazza Archimede, the heart of Ortygia. We had a nice double room facing the Piazza. It was a beautiful view of the fountain, however, bring your earplugs, because even though the ac is on and windows shut, very late at night/ early morning (0200), our companions in another... More

We followed signs to talete parking and parked there in an undercover car park, was reasonable price (10 euros for 24 hours I think). Was about a 10 minute walk to archimede vacanze, but easy to find. Don't know if there is any easier parking nearby. Got there and spent about 10 mins ringing the bell at reception. Rang them...

View to Piazza Archimede from our big room that we had for 5 nights - hard to imagine a better location as everything in the old town is a short walk away. Breakfast was excellent combined with really expert service in English is something we really appreciated.

The rooms are comfy and clean. Just in the center of Ortiga, walking distance from restaurants and shops. Our room had a nice balcony with view on the piazza archimede, although some noise at night ( bring earplugs). Good breakfast and friendly staff. Many stairs to get into the hotel, no elevator. Location is amazing!

A little difficult to find but well worth the trouble. Parking is a walk away, and there are stairs to get to the B&B. The welcome from your host Florentina is worth the effort. The rooms are, Comfortable, Clean, with an amazing traditional breakfast, what more could you need. It is in the centre of Ortiga so there may be... More
