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

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
