This was our third and final base on our 2 week trip to Sicily and was marginally the best.
On arrival we were immediately offered soft drinks and nibbles. Our luggage was brought to the room for us.
We found the hotel, exactly as named, charming, and the staff, particularly on reception, even more so.
Our room was not massive, but very characterful (as was the hotel in general). The mini-bar only contained soft drinks, but was free. The bathroom had so many mirrors, I was constantly thinking who is that old guy in the room with me? The water power on the shower was not overly strong, but so what, it did the job.
We reported 2 minor issues with the TV and a light and the maintenance man was there before we got back to the room.
We had an excellent evening meal in the hotel restaurant and found the breakfasts superb, particularly the fact that all hot dishes were cooked to order, and you didn't have to be Einstein to quickly work that one out!
We found the location central for easily reaching the main sights of Ortigia and quickly fell in love with the place. At no time did we ever feel remotely unsafe (reference a previous review).
I cannot rate for value as we did not receive a breakdown of individual hotel costs.
