A perfect small luxury hotel to visit Ortigia. Location is perfect, parking readily available/arranged in front of the hotel. The hotel is in an old modernised palace, with nothing of a major chain hotel. Staff was very welcoming and attentive. Recommendations and bookings for restaurants and best ice cream parlours were spot on. Free bicycles were a great idea to visit the city (would be great to have 1-2 children bicycles or seats). No beach or much space for children to run in the hotel, but really no issue for a few days.
