Ten minutes, either way, to the Greek theatre site or Ortigia bridges, three minutes to the railway station; could hardly be better placed. Unfortunately, plaudits cease here. Bedroom decoration was tired, our 'double bed' two singles pushed together, there was no room safe. Dinner, more notable for quantity than quality, was slammed down, perhaps because the restaurant manager had threatened... More

The location is center, the train station is 5-7 minutes walk from the hotel, a moderate size supermarket was at the back street of the hotel. The location is in the residential apartment that means you get no view except the building. To reach the lobby there are steps and the sitting area is quite big with free WIFI. To... More

Location is good, walking distance from the train station, conveniently located opposite a bus stop that serves Catania airport, etc., you can get to the island in 15mins, too. Reception area is very nice, looks like it has been recently refurbished. Receptionists are also helpful and friendly. Breakfast is appalling, possibly the worst I've seen in a 4star hotel: no...

The hotel was very nice, the service was good, the workers were helpful and the food was good. The hotel is located right in the middle of Syracuse where there is lots of traffic. We were not sure if the area was very safe. (?)

First, there were no place to park. Then no wireless connection for several days. The breakfast was poor and very crowded. The room we reserved were a triple and they gave us a double with extra bed so no space avaialble in the room. Bad decission and not best option for sure

We stayed in this hotel as part of a cosmos tour of sicily. The hotel reception is lovely and welcoming, and the room was equally as lovely and clean with a generously sized bathroom. The evening meal was delightful and the restaurant decor was modern and stylish. The waiting staff were also very kind and friendly. Breakfast was basic breads,... More

We stayed here just for 1 night as part of a tour group. Our room No 323 was a good size and well appointed with a fridge, desk, twin beds, and A/C. There were no tea & coffee making facilities. It had a shower but no bath which was not a problem for us but could be for those wanting... More
