“Hotel Roma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

A wonderful hotel centrally located on the island of Ortigia. The rooms are very modern and spacious with good air conditioning. The food at the hotel restaurant was one of our better meals and as a bonus with outside seating you are on the Piazza del Duomo...be aware that at 8 the church bells ring but it does ad something to the stay!

Syracuse was our favorite stop on our Sicily tour. We had a very comfortable, modern room (free wifi, good air conditioning) at the Hotel Roma, and it's location could not be better. The hotel is just around the corner from the Duomo, with its wonderful church, lots of restaurants, and if you like Caravaggio, his Burial of St. Lucy.

Our reservation was part of a package tour, so we cannot speak of the value per price. But our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is located splendidly, close to the Piazza del Duomo and, in fact, everything else in Ortigia. The parking garage is 15€ a day, a bit expensive, but it is just 20 or so meters away. (We left the car in the garage for the duration of our stay.) Service was excellent, as was breakfast. If we return to Siracusa, we will probably go back to this hotel.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The location is superb: just a few steps away from the beautiful Piazza del Duomo, at the very heart of Ortigia. In the mornings we had our breakfast on the terrace, with a view on the Duomo further along the street. Nevertheless it was quite easy to reach the hotel with our rental car (and fortunately they had a garage with valet parking to leave the car during our stay). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

This hotel is right beside Piazza Duomo, which must surely be one of the loveliest piazzas in Italy, both during the daytime and after dark when the lighting is beautiful. The hotel is smart and comfortable and we were charmed to have a glimpse of the sea beyond the rooftops of the town from our small balcony. We didn't have time to use the hotel laundry service, but found an excellent laundrette near the bridge between Siracusa and Ortigia, Lavanderia ad aqua Ortigia, via dei Mille, where the owner was friendly and helpful. The Roma is well placed for lots of restaurants etc. too.

Single travelling with a group. Hotel is extremely smart, modern and 'designer'. Lovely lounge area with traveller friendly library and all types of internet access. Small but pretty walled garden. Extremely efficient staff. Single traveller but given double bed - absolutely superb room, faultlessly clean with 3 (!) balconies - one with a small table and chairs - overlooking and right by the sea. All I heard all night was the sea crashing against the sea walls, fantastic. Star gazing at night & watching the night fishermen a must. Breakfast extremely good - lots of amazing cakes! No dinner served - but then you wont need it with the numerous inexpensive eateries within walking distance. Absolutely wonderful and I loved it there and definitely want to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing balcony. I didnt find the front balcony noisy at all (compared to Palermo!).

The hotel is well situated in the heart of the old city of Syracusa within walking distance of all the sites. If you arrive by car, park outside the main entrance and they valet park your car for you (handy with narrow streets and Italian drivers!). The staff are helpful and friendly and there is good wifi in the bedrooms which are clean and of a reasonable size. I recommend this hotel.
