We stayed here for a wedding weekend and were delighted with Siracusa which is filled with exquisite old buildings, little alleyways and open squares, overlooking the sea on two sides of the narrow peninsula. The hotel did not feel like a 5 star. We were grateful to have booked a sea view room which had dual aspect French windows so... More

We stayed in mid June with friends who had another double room with sea view next door. The hotel itself was fine, in a great location and the view of sunset across the bay was super. The rooftop bar was very relaxing with more good views. There was a strong smell of chlorine from the downstairs pool in the extension... More

We stayed at this hotel last summer for one night during a trip in Sicily. When we arrived there was absolutely no help in showing us where we could park our car and my husband had to figure out where the public parking was on his own, our room was in need of update and not really clean.

In my opinion Des etrangers Hotel is the best hotel at Siracusa. Hotel is in the heart of the old city, very close all the restaurants, jewish quarter, duomo (old catedral), Aretusa foutain ext.. hotel rooms large and comfortable, front side rooms have beatifull view, breakfast was delicious and staff were friendly especially to advicing of the restaurant.

This hotel is on a small island in the city of Siracusa. There is a beautiful roof top bar with great views of the harbor and surrounding quaint town areas.

An interesting, grand old hotel with prime location its major asset. The Des Etrangers struck me as a formerly-noble edifice, re-cast as modern hotel. Such accounts for the long and circuitous route to breakfast, and to the rooftop restaurant. Comfortable mattress, albeit curiously low. Bathroom amenities are always wanting in Italy, but the shower stall in my room was absurdly... More

There is something rather faded about this hortel and I wondered how it kept its 5 star status. We had pre booked car parking, but anything to do with a car in Ortigia is a nightmare and the directions to park were the cause of great stress to this traveller.
