stayed here with a couple friends, rooms were good with lot's of floor space. bathrooms are very basic. Could use some updating for sure, but it's great if you're on a budget. Breakfast was pretty basic but still good. I didn't have much interaction with the staff so I can't comment much on that but check in was easy and... More

The one good thing about this hotel is the proximity to the train station. That's the only good thing. But there are other hotels near the station so I suggest you stay at a different one. The Archimede hotel is in need of updating. It's not dirty but it's not nice. We were told it was full up but in... More

It's a good location and the staff was very helpful. It isn't luxurious by any means, but more than adequate. It is a short pleasant walk to the old city or to the archaeological ruins. I'd rate it good.

After an awful night's sleep here (paper thin walls, doors that slam very loudly) we left early for our train. We asked for some hot water to make a flask of tea with our own tea bags and they flatly refused! The staff were rude. To make things even better, I found over 120 bites all over me from the... More

This is a 2-star hotel near the train and bus stations and is very convenient if you want to visit places outside Syracuse such as Pantallica, Noto etc. and need to start the day early. The accommodation is what you would expect for a 2-star hotel but the reception foyer makes it feel more luxuriant and spacious with a small... More

We found this hotel to be sub standard for the price we paid. The hotel is located right beside the train station. This was very convenient for us but this was about the only good thing going. When we first checked in we were given a warning about tourist prices and different places around the city and how they will... More

I am not pleased with this hotel. First, I phoned to book a room. They told me it was 60 euros a night. Then, when we got there, they wanted to charge us with 5 euros more! The room was very cold and we had to ask for the remote control for the air conditioner, to make it hotter. They... More

Hotel Archimede B&B was recommended in a recent Rough Guide edition (1993) as an OK budget accommodation. We have just returned and wanted to advise that we were not pleased with this hotel even though we found Rough Guide very reliable in all other instances. Most of this hotel's staff were cold, unfriendly and inattentive. The hotel itself is only... More
