First, the good parts. Nice location on a waterway near the marina with a view and balcony. Room is the normal smaller room for the Italian B&Bs . Nicely located near everything in Ortigia. Beautiful view from the rooftop where we had breakfast every morning, with a nice variety of pastries. The view from the rooftop of the city and... More

We stayed in this B and B for four nights and found owners friendly and helpful but we were disappointed in the size of our bedroom. It was quite small compared with rooms we have had in other B and B's in Italy. We had a little balcony with a view over the harbour which was more of a working... More

When you come over the stone bridge from Siracusa to the stunning old town of Ortigia, L’Approdo Delle Sirene is just along the quayside. It is owned and managed by a delightful family. Our room (number 5) was beautiful and very pleasant, although our “sea view” was very much a sideways one. The direct view from our window was of... More

We really loved this bed and breakfast. It was convenient for the centre of Ortigia and a great place to watch the world go by from the terrace. The people running it were very friendly and tolerant of my Italian! They provided prosecco and antipasti on the evening of my husband's birthday which was much appreciated. The breakfasts were amazing... More

A super B&B situated by the harbour. We had an attic room which was spotless clean. A little spartan and obviously no view as we had a skylight window, but this was no problem as we were on the same level as the roof terrace overlooking the harbour and we sat out there on an evening. A comfortable bed but... More

Very convenient for the sights of Ortigia, which is a delight to stroll around, also for access to the newer town across the bridge. The room was well laid out and had a feeling of space and light, as did the adjoining bathroom, and had a small balcony with view over the water. We appreciated the kettle/tea bags, also the... More

There were 3 couples in our group. We spent 3 nights at this beautiful B&B in Ortegia which is an island attached to Siracusa. If you are visiting Siracusa, you want to stay in Ortegia. This hotel is found just as you cross the bridge to the island and it is right on the water. Fiora and her son were... More

Lovely location by the fishing port (which while we were there had one of the biggest yachts you ever seen - apparently courtesy of a Russian Oligach). Our room was the first floor corner so you could watch the comings and goings. Ortigia is lovely for walking around and has plenty of restaurants at night. We were fortunate in being... More

Location: right on the water at the entrance to the Ortigia peninsula. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the local market etc. Rooms: Nice light rooms, free WiFi, tiny bathrooms. Room safe didn't work. Breakfast: Breakfast Italian style - which means lots of cake and sweets. However, also boiled eggs, ham and cheese, jam, cereal and fresh fruit. Others: The... More

Easy to find, just across the bridge joining Ortigia to the mainland, and with free parking on the harbour side of the street immediately outside the building. L'Approdo delle Sirene is part of an old building offering stunning views across the harbour from the breakfast terrace and some of the bedrooms. Service is very friendly and helpful, with excellent recommendations... More
