Written free parking exists about hour of walking. After arrival we have been to, there is no room for booked price but higher. No more words. But location nice... It's the center of old town. Don't take your car with you.

It is true this palazzo has seen better times. We spent 4 happy nights in room 12 ans are back in room 21. Sea view, great location, good prices, clean. I am sure there are better places in ortigia. It is true that when Rosa is not here, nobody is in charge. I still recommend the place

perfect view, close to the centre, the front desk lady manager very nice and helpful BUT one problem related to breakfast: it is not provided on the hotel premises but you get a ticket from the reception and must go to Bar Centrale in Piazza Archimede!

Please read previous reviews-they are all true! Apart from being in a good location, there is absolutely nothing else to say that is good about the B & B. They don't even serve breakfast. The place is dilapidated and filthy. You have been warned!

I chose this hotel for its location near the swimming place in Syracuse. I walked in with no reservation and negotiated a fair price, so on that front I have no complaints. But the hotel itself badly needs maintenance. Broken shower cubicle, rusty dirty balcony, missing light bulbs (the whole hotel needs more light), old mattress, scuff marks on the... More

We spent 4 nights here which were prepaid otherwise we would have left after 1. On arrival the receptionist tried to persuade us to share a room despite having booked and paid for two and only complied when we insisted. My room had not been properly cleaned - the floor was dusty and waste bin not emptied. The bathroom had... More

This hotel should not have a 3 star rating. The rooms were barely adequate and only cleaned once in 4 days; the bathroom had no soap and a very dirty and broken shower. There was no TV and the mini fridge was broken. The worst aspect of this dilapidated place was the service. The owner/manager seemed half asleep and the... More

The staff-receptionist, cleaner very helpful. Otherwise- mould and lime scale everywhere in the bathroom, old walls, dirty floor, dust everywhere and ants on the floor???. The see view is distracted by the parking just bellow the balconies, noisy. This is a 3 stars hotel?? It deserves every negative point. Siracuse is just beautiful , but next time try 4 or... More

First of all, finding a parking space for non-residents of Syracuse is next to impossible. And the staff is of absolutely no help ... Secondly, the hotel is shabby looking and poorely ran - 4 differents receptionists of whom one forgot to return my ID at the time of check-out and quite a lot of persuasion and help of staff...
