绝对超值享受 ! 你不会失望的 ! We experienced extraordinary friendly service at B&B Arestusa Vacanze. The lady was so friendly, she helped us personally to find a parking place nearby the hotel in the old town upon our arrival. The host brought kindly our luggage to our room. The room was large and very clean, with simple but beautiful decoration. Everything for... More

Wonderful service. Great breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, cheese selection, cakes, ham and sandwiches. Very quiet place in a cute little street, close to many restaurants. Nice room and very functional when coming with kids. Liked the little kitchenette that allowed us to eat our own cooked meals.

I am so glad we stayed here, with Antonio, Ettore and Maurizio. They were so sweet, helpful, warm, gracious. They were always there to answer my questions .... the location was perfect for us in Ortigia, within easy walk of the water as well as many sites, restaurants. The establishment is in a small alley and has a reception on... More

Antonio was so helpful to us as we communicated online prior to our trip to Ortegya. When our plane landed at an unexpected airport due to weather, Antonio and Hector were beyond helpful in getting us to the B&B and picking us up from our taxi because no car travel is allowed in the old city after 8pm. Wonderful location... More

The owner/staff were outstanding, very friendly and helpful, and had good restaurant recommendations. Everything is within an easy walk. Their parking was a couple of blocks away. We had the first floor room, which was large, with a small kitchen and sleeping for three. However, the room is right on the walk street, with an exterior door as well as... More

During our five nights at Aretusa Vacanze in a triple room, we found the staff and owners welcoming and charming, even organising the making up of our the room so we could move straight in, despite arriving earlier than checkin. The room was very clean and spacious and included the use of a tiny kitchen counter with fridge and a... More

This charming little boutique hotel tucked away on a small street with a great restaurant next door was a real find. Room was big and the bed was terrific. Selling point is the rooftop breakfast where the owner serves a huge breakfast and includes his mother's cake, which is delicious. Near everthing and at night you can go to the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in room 10. We were greeted by Antonio who was absolutely fantastic!!!! He was extremely helpful & runs the show here! Unfortunately I wasn't impressed with our room. Dark & dingy in the annex of the building. The only positive I can say about the room was it was quiet. The pillows were like... More

Location, breakfast and staff are fabulous. Can't be better situated and all of Ortiga can be visited by foot from there. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this B&B for anyone travelling to Syracuse!
