The b&b is wonderfully located and it is very easy to find. Our room was lovelly decorated, very clean and it had a very nice bathroom. Since it is in the Piazza Archimede, it could be noisy on weekend nights, but we were there on a Monday and it was very quiet. Breakfast was the best I had in Italy!... More

If you stay at B&B Diana, you're within walking distance of just about everywhere in Ortigia (Siracusa's historic center). That alone might recommend this place, but there's more: our host was non-interfering and flexible (although largely absent; that wasn't a problem for us, as we liked being left to our own devices, but perhaps other tourists might want more guidance);...

This B&B was very well located in one of the main piazzas in Ortigia, Piazza Archimede. Only a short walk from anywhere on this marvellous island of churches, narrow streets and beautiful views. Our room was nicely furnished and had its own en-suite shower room. Breakfast is served in an attractive room overlooking the fountain and comprises a wonderful buffet... More

Excellent location in Ortigia, and a nice breakfast is served every morning. The place is quite noisy though, both from outside and the inner walls are very thin too so you can hear everything from the hallway and other rooms. The owner is very friendly and was very helpful in solving a luggage delivery problem for us. The parking is... More

I stayed here for six nights, extending my stay when I fell hopelessly in love with Ortygia. B&B Diana is not perfect but who comes to Sicily for perfection? And this B&B is nothing fancy. But it is charming, quaint, friendly and perfect for me. Breakfast is now served in the house. In addition to the usual fare, my hostess... More

I was a bit disappointed by this one. Great location on one of the main piazzas in Ortygia, slightly noisy at the bar below but it didn't bother us. What did was the fact that the room was smoky and dark. Just not nice to come back to after a day's touring. Owner was very pleasant. Highlight was the freshly... More

Very convenient! Very nice family. They don't serve breakfast -- instead, they give you a voucher for breakfast at the most perfect cafe in the world, across from one of the most magnificent duomos in all of Italy. One thing: Park at the public parking lot as you enter Ortigia, then take the FREE bus to the Plaza Archimedes, where... More

Charming place right on the main square. We felt we were residents of Syracuse for several days. Welcoming host. The B and B does not serve breakfast. We were given coupons to a nearby cafe which was excellent and enhanced our experience. We expected the location to be noisy but it was not.

This B & B is located on the second floor and shares its space with another B & B. It is in an ideal location; right on the Piazza Archimede in Ortygia. There can be a bit of noise at night, though we did not seem to be bothered by this. Our windows faced the side street and I wondered... More
