This hotel turned out to be one of the best things we did in Siracusa. The miqwe below the hotel and the history of this once villa led me to want to stay here. I was not disappointed. We had a lovely two bedroom suite with kitchenette and living room. The hotel is small, very quiet and very intimate. Downstairs... More

Tucked away amongst the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter, this hotel (not to be confused with another of similar name, La Vie della Giudecca) is a slightly ramshackle but most pleasant discovery. A large bedroom with ensuite and a kitchenette and separate sitting room made for an airy and pleasant environment. The place was clean and well kept,... More

I understand that satisfying the diverse need of guest from different countries in not an easy task. People have different needs and different things are important to each guest. If the hotel does not meet the particular needs then the experience is sub par. In the case of Alla Giudecca my most important need is wifi, both for work and... More

Our family stayed at this carefully preserved old town castle hotel in April 2012. We got our own side building at low price. The decoration looks authentic and the rooms are really high. Under the hotel there are ancient bathhouse ruins. One of the most memorable hotels I've visited so far.

We booked this hotel at the last minute and were very pleased with the apartment. It was large and spacious and led to a wonderfully kept courtyard. Breakfast was plentiful with some good healthy choices.The location is great, within walking distance to all the key sights in Ortigia. If you come by car, be prepared to drop off any luggage...

We stayed at Hotel Alla Giudecca for 5 nights in July this year and we were pleasantly surprised by how good it was. We had a two bedroom apartment on 2 floors and a lovely living area, and we were 3 minutes from the sea where my children swam each day. We visited the markets each morning for food supplies...

I did not stay at this hotel, although I tried to - there was a conference on which seemed to take up the whole place. The reason for this review is to express my surprise and frustration at the manner in which the Mikvah tours are conducted. I specifically sought out the hotel for that purpose one fine spring morning... More

I suggest you be careful at this hotel - i went in person to reserve a room for visiting friends (i had to go back about 3 times, since no one was ever at the desk), offered to pay in full in advance with a credit card, and did so, receiving a receipt for the payment. No one told me... More

We loved our apartment at alla Giudecca. The building is full of character and beautifully restored, and the apartment large, stylish and comfortable. We didn't get the sea view but we still enjoyed our shady balcony (apt.1), large living room, 2 beds and bathroom. The kitchenette is small, but ok to make a good pasta meal! Breakfast was good, nothing... More

Here we don't find the usual hotel bedroom. What we had here was a two floor apartment with a terrace, from which we could see a bit of the blue sea. The people there are very nice! The hotel is in the old Hebrew baths, in Ortigia. As soon as we leave it, we can feel surrounded by ancient legends:... More
