We stayed here in September. Could not have been more pleased. Everyone was genuinely helpful, kind, enthusiastic. We were unprepared (our fault) to find hotel while in our car as it is on a pedestrians only (tiny) street. Hector, a real gentleman, came to our rescue appearing cheerful and unfazed (unlike myself ;) ). Room was clean and comfortable, breakfast... More

We loved breakfast on the roof terrace. The location is perfect - right in the middle or ortigia. The staff were very helpful and informative. We had a two room suite which would work well for a family.

We felt very much at home in this small hotel in the centre of Siracusa. The receptionist came to look for us when we got lost upon arrival and was the most friendly and helpful person imaginable. The room was a bit dark, but otherwise OK for 2 nights. The mini kitchen was very useful. The hotel seems to consist... More

There could be nothing negative which can be said about this wonderful accomodation. To begin with the staff and the owners are so friendly and helpful that make the stay so pleasant. Apart from helping us with suggestions of what to see and where to eat, they went out of their way to help us with all our requests (and... More

We visited here early october. This is out of season, but local people recommended this is the best season! B&B located at the best place of Ortygia, and hosts were very helpful and served nice breakfast (even fresh orange & lemon juices were just squeezed on our front!) on scenic terrace on the top. Here is very nice place and... More

Interesting double level room with basic cooking facilities for self-caterers in centre of beautiful old Ortigia. Spotlessly clean. Quiet, relaxing surroundings. Fine breakfast on terrace, one of the best in Italy. Good price, especially for room and location.

We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast on the rooftop was a nice way to start the day. Rooms were well-furnished and also had air conditioning units if you need them. I can't say enough as well about the location, very central to everything in Ortigia, easy to walk around and come back for... More

Ortigia is one of the most beautiful spots in Sicily. On arrival in Ortigia we called the hotel as requested and waited with the car next to the Fonte Aretusa. A lovely gentleman came down and found us and we drove the car to the only garage parking in Ortigia (cost 5 Euro a night - very cheap). Don't panic... More

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Had the last room available which was advertised as economy. It was spacious and comfortable. Were helped to the car park by the charming Hector who speaks French, not English! The breakfast on the terrace which has great views was fabulous. Would certainly go again, tremendous value for Ortigia.
