Even though we stayed here only for one night, we loved the place, the ultra-central location in the heart of the island, next to everything. The rooms were large and had a certain charm, as they kept the architecture of the building and were nicely decorated. At night it can get noisy being in a touristy area (Piazza de Archimede),...

This is an ideally located B&B, right in the centre of Ortigia. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I can’t fault it except for the breakfast which is just coffee and a pastry at the bar downstairs.

Siracusa is a fabulous town and B&B Itaca is very well located in the old part, Ortigia. We were able to drop off bags in front of the B&B but free parking was 15 minutes walk away. Giuseppe, our host, greeted us on arrival; he is a friendly and laid back character and he gave us a map, told us... More

Our stay in Itaca was one of my favourite experiences of our trip to Sicily. The location, in a lovely piazza in central Ortygia district is ideal for travelers who would like to stay in a historic, clean, safe and beautiful part of Syracuse. It is convenient to several good resuraunts and boutiques, and it is easy to find. The... More

We had a wonderfull stay in Itaca, it is in very central place of Ortygia. And the owner kindly welcomed us although we arrived really late (~22:30h). He also kindly explained how to park the car in free parking. Our room window faced to the the Piazza Archimede which has a fountain in it, it means you may hear it... More

I booked this bb after i read the positive reviews and im glad to be adding my own positive review after my stay. it's clean, tastefully decorated and helpful staff. it's located bang in the middle of the ortigia so it's 15 min walk to any point. The B&B is easy to find with a GPS but parking is challenging... More

Was staying at this B&B like staying in a five star hotel with all the amenities, where everything was perfect? No! But, that's not what we wanted. We wanted a reasonable place to spend our time in Ortygia, but we had no idea we would have such an amazing stay here. Staying here was like staying at home, where Giuseppe... More

Everything about this place is nice. The room is nice, staff is extremely helpful and the location is excellent. The breakfast in the cafe across the square was one of the best we had during our travels in Sicily.

We stayed at Itaca for two nights in late June 2012 after a mix-up with our reservation at a different B&B. The rooms are spacious and impeccably clean and the management very helpful and welcoming. The central location is excellent and means that the lack of breakfast at Itaca itself is not so much of an issue. It's possible to... More

We didn't book, simply turned up. No problems - the owner was friendly and welcoming, advising us on good places to eat. The room was spacious, well equipped, quiet and stylish. Really liked the single piece of marble used for the shower tray. Very comfortable bed. Totally relaxing,
