Pleasant old style hotel which actually is located inside a neighbourhood courtyard. A good 20 minute walk to the station or 45 minutes bus ride to Catania airport / 30 minute walk to old city which of course is not that bad if you love to walk. Rooms are large, but very dim & dark. Very friendly & caring staff... More

We were tourists in Siracusa and found most of the ambience and good restaurants and beautiful things to see on Ortigia. This hotel is located on the mainland about a 25 minute walk from Ortigia. I would recommend for people just visiting for a few days to stay on the island to soak up all that's going on there.

Centrally located, the outside is not particularly prepossessing. BUT the room was very good, large and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the grounds and Basilica of Our Lady of Tears. The staff were excellent, helpful and very willing to provide advice, information and help. We could walk to all the major places of interest for example Ortigia, Archaeological Park etc.... More

My friend and I were really impressed with the hotel especially with the lovely lady who runs it, she is so kind and helpful, thank you! The breakfast was very good too. The hotel is in a perfect location to reach Ortigia, which is the old town and Siracusa, where the amphitheater is. Be prepared for a twenty min walk... More

If you have ever heard the saying' Never judge a book by it's cover', this would be a prime example. From the outside nothing really to get excited about, but once in the reception, although compact, very efficient, with excellent, helpful staff. The room was spacious, clean & the breakfast was excellent. Its location for the historical attractions of catacombs,... More

The hotel is located right in the middle of Syracuses main points of interest. It's about a 20 minute walk to Ortigya (the half-island) or 5 minutes drive. Although the outside of the building looks very old, the inside is amazing. Wood floor throughout the entire compound, very nice beds and a large bath. Free Wifi was great in the... More

Good friendly hotel a little out of the centre of Syracuse. Very helpful staff, simple but tasty breakfast in the morning. Rooms are large, modern and most have sky TV. Great air con and although on a main road, not too noisy. Its in a shoddy looking building but inside is modern, so don't get put off by the facade.... More
