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

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

Staff was very nice, but the rooms were small, tattered, outdated, and poorly ventilated. And they charged for wi-if that didn't work. It's centrally situated in walking distance from Archeological Park and Ortigia. Definitely more of a 3 star.

The location is not bad. The quantity and the quality of the dinner was very bad. The breakfast was very poor. There is no internet axes from midnight till 7 in the morning!!!!! The room was small and the only positive was the wooden working area.

Stayed one night as part of a tour group. The room was generous in size for a single room. Hotel is close to the Ortigia and Neapolis and within easy walking distance from both. The only criticism I have was the poor breakfast and dreadful coffee they had in the morning. Other than that, as a one night stop on... More

A very simple hotel but the staff is nice and it's clean. Very central and with parking and that's the main reason I stay there. Rooms can be upgraded a little. Pity they removed their coffee shop as it was the main attraction of the hotel.
