I chose this based on reviews and their website. First, it's very easy to reach, just over the bridge onto Ortigia, the charming and historic old center of Siracusa. Parking was easy and free, on the street. The rooms are decorated in a contemporary style, but the building is an old palazzo. The owners live there (several generations). It gives... More

We loved this hotel! It was in a GREAT location, just off to the right of the bridge going into Ortygia. The helpful owners showed us where to park for FREE (he actually walked out with us to make sure we were in the right spot) and we stayed there until it was time for us to leave the area... More

Nicely designed B & B in a lovely & lively location. The breakfast terrace had a lovely view & food was good. Our room was rather small but we were only there 2 nights so not a problem. Owners helpful in trying to get a parking space.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 40th anniversary exploring Sicily and one of our most hospitable stops was spent at the small and stylish L'Approdo delle Sirene. Gianmarco and Fiora were great hosts. The B&B is nicely located outside of the hustle and bustle of the shopping area, but very convenient for walking. Loved looking out at the berths... More

This B&B is the perfect base to explore the beautiful city of Ortigia. L'approdo is a great little boutique B&B. Clean good sized bedroom and bathroom, comfortable bed and a great breakfast served on the terrace. Staff were friendly and also informative about the sights that should be seen and also suggested a number of restaurants. Highly recommend it. Ortigia... More

Stylish small hotel overlooking the fishing port and the marina. Ask for a room with a view of the port - the best room is the corner one. Great breakfast. Our room was large and comfortable. It's right over the channel between Ortigia and the mainland, where the fishing boats dock - which is great, if you like that kind... More

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
