Once again we had a room on the top floor with a private outdoor terrace. The room had a restful pale blue and white décor, A/C was perfect, comfortable mattress, crisp linens and wonderful pillows. Shower stall was roomy; rainfall showerhead plus hand held. The towels were a little frayed, could definitely do with replacing them and a more powerful... More

Stayed for 4 nights with my parents. The location was great, in a quiet side street on the island of Ortigia, close to the sea and all the major sights. Breakfast was really good, with a particularly wide selection for such a small place, including several different homemade cakes, yoghurt, fresh fruit, meat, cheese, cereal etc. Our room was fantastic...

Piazza del Sale was everything I hoped it would be, and more. The location is very convenient; a short walk to the waterfront, and near a lot of restaurants and shops. We were greeted by the wonderful Luisa, who made us feel at home right away. She also provided "above and beyond" service by assisting us with faxing documents to... More

Stayed for 4 nights in a lovely room on the top floor with a spacious terrace overlooking the quiet street. Everything about our stay was perfect. We had asked Luisa for restaurant recommendations before we arrived and she made bookings for us and we were very happy with our meal every evening. Breakfast was delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice... More

First, we really enjoyed our trip to Ortigya in Sicily. Palazzo del Sale was just part of the great experience. We arrived by rental car a bit earlier than I had originally scheduled, but a quick call from the call button outside and Giovanni met us within 10 minutes. We found parking right on the street, so it made it... More

We arrived on bikes and the very friendly helpful host Giovanni, was very welcoming and immediately took care of them locking them securely in his office! The room was gorgeous, beautifully restored using local themes including drift wood, ceramics and terracotta tiles. Very comfortable bed, spacious room and perfectly clean. There is a lovely communal area where a very good... More

We stayed here recently for 2 nights. It is well located, including a short walk to the seaside promenade to watch the sunset with a glass of Prosecco. Our room was spacious and light and had a large terrace. Breakfast had freshly squeezed orange juice, good pastries, cheeses and capucchino. When we were sharing a bottle of wine with our... More

This is an old salt warehouse very sympathetically restored into a little B & B. We booked the room with the large terrace and thought the room was lovely - modern and bright but with little touches like the old writing desk from the old salt mill. Breakfast was good and service was excellent. Giovanni was very helpful and this... More

We were recommended this property by an Italian here in the UK and were told it represented an authentic insight in to Sicilian hospitality-we were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and were treated as though we were friends, not guests. Our room, with air conditioning and small balcony, was on the 1st floor and... More

Very happy with this very attractive B&B - perfect location in the old part of Ortigia (which we would recommend ahead of the mainland part of Syracuse), charming room with terrace and delicious breakfast. All of the staff were wonderful. Only challenge is the parking - which is probably similar for other hotels in the area if they don't have... More
