A great little B/B in Ortigia. The staff speak fluent English, and they are very helpful with directions to various attractions and with restaurant recommendations. Two places were recommended to us for dinner, and both places were fabulous. The breakfast buffet in the morning is quite nice, with a great view of the harbor. Three glitches with our stay: 1)...

L'Approdo delle Sirene ("The Siren's Landing", alluding to Ulysses travels in the Odyssey) is a small, well-run, well-located B&B on the waterfront in Siracusa's historical Ortigia island. The family-run place is great for solo and coupled-up travelers seeking a quality alternative to large, impersonal hotels. The proprietors, an entrepreneurial family with other businesses on the island, are proficient in English... More

We drove into Syracuse from Cefalu. It was an easy drove compared to finding other places in Italy. We parked just outside the B & B. An elevator takes you up to the reception desk. Our room over-looked the harbor. We loved the room, the people, the town and the food. The hotel gave us great recommendations for restaurants and... More

This Inn is within an easy walk to the town center. The rooms are large. Nice bright colors. The owner, Fiora, is very friendly and accommodating. This is a B&B but you are given freedom and space. The guest rooms are on opposite sides (door and hallway) of owner quarters.

It's not possible to praise this place highly enough! We were made to feel incredibly welcome by the charming and friendly owner, who immediately took us up to the terrace for a free coffee and a lovely rest, because we had arrived so early in the morning (due to the Easter bus service-don't even ask!)- we were there hours before...

This hotel is in a great location and the owners are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast in the rooftop room is great and we were upgraded to a sea view room which was very comfortable. Great value for money too!

This hotel was bright and cheerful. The room we had was large, clean, and very comfortable. The view from the terrace was spectacular. They serve a delicious breakfast in this glass enclosed terrace, or you can take your goodies up to the open air terrace if you like. The location is great. We were on the harbor and within walking... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B and found it to be in a nice quiet location at the end of the bridge to Ortygia, the old town beside the small fishing port. It was a 15 minute walk from the bus/train station and close to many restaurants, cafe's and landmarks. The B&B is situated in an 100 year... More

Although near to the bridge and the old town we found it a lttle bit difficult to locate this B&B. The owners helped us immediatly to find a free parking in the street.Having breakfast on a terrace, near the water was very charming. Our room was what you can axpect from a normal hotel room : nothing less, nothing more..

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
