Palazzo del Sale is the sister B&B to Giuggiulena in Siracusa, already described here. I was fortunate enough to get to stay at both places, run by Sabrina, her brother Giovanni, and Louisa. The service is untoppable - everyone goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and happy. When one place wasn't available for all the days... More

We stayed on Valentines for two nights in the duplex suite. The room was very well decorated and the upper mezzanine floor was self contained, private and perfect for our teenage daughter. A large ensuite shower room and balcony completed the room. Breakfast is fresh varied and of high quality. You eat in a bright contemporary living room with an... More

The standout for this property is the staff, namely Giovanni and Louisa in our stay were exceptional. We arrived and were very much welcomed and were assigned a room with a terrace, which looked gorgeous but unfortunately we encountered a plumbing problem , a smell and told Giovanni who immediately investigated and tried to fix. Unfortunately a spare room was... More

Beautiful, spacious and clean in an excellent location in Ortygia. Because the hotel is a renovated building, the rooms are all different and unique- we especially enjoyed the views from the large rooms on the top floor which had balconies. Breakfast consisted of a large smorgasbord-style spread with excellent pastries, cheeses, meats and fruit. Service was very efficient and personable.... More

Beautiful light spacious very clean and airy room right in the heart of old Syracuse. The things we liked the most were the, service, outside terrace and home cooked cakes at breakfast. To give an example of the level of service you can expect here: We returned to our room in the early hours after a wedding, needless to say... More

We recently stayed at this location 2 nights and found the location terrific. Giovanni was very welcoming and very helpful. Our room was large and comfortable; we had no natural light and were close to the breakfast/common room but there were not many guests so other than hearing the set up in the morning, we were not disturbed by others....

We really could not fault this Hotel. Beautifully laid out bedroom, with bed that was very comfortable and gave an excellent nights sleep even to myself with back problems. The bathroom was charming with a very good, larger shower. We had a private terrace which was wonderful. Breakfast was sumptuous with fresh breads, cakes, meat, preserves, cheeses and fruit. Luisa...

Lovely hotel which could not be better placed in Ortigia. It was close to everything we wanted to see. The hotel was clean and everything was well presented. Our room was on the top floor with a private terrace and it was charming and very comfortable. Luisa was really helpful with parking, what to visit and where to eat and... More

My usual hotel review disclaimer: I am very picky! So choosing a place to stay is always a bit of a challenge, perhaps especially this time since it was our honeymoon. Well, Palazzo del Sale could not have been any better. We arrived very late at night and Giovanni asked us to call when we entered Siracusa. We ended up... More

My family (6 adults) stayed at Palazzo Del Sale for 6 nights in August and we would all highly recommend this accommodation. The owner and manager Giovani and Luisa were remarkably helpful - we asked them countless questions every day about where to eat / what beaches to visit / local attractions etc and they always went the extra mile...
