Wonderful start to our holiday in Sicily. Hotel is in a perfect position with the most amazing sea view from our room. Downside is that parking in Ortigia is pretty impossible. We were able to unload but then had to drive ten minutes away to a municipal car park at the entrance to the island and then had to queue... More

The best part of this stay was the proximity of a beach just across the street from the hotel. Down a staircase is a lovely small stretch of the sea where you can cool off. The rooms were OK, but the air conditioning was under-powered. There was also a sewer/gas smell in the bathroom one day. Hotel staff are helpful... More

Formerly a convent, The Royal Manice Hotel is a small hotel located in Ortiga on the harbor. While our room and shower showed a need for repairs and a terrace with chairs looking at a wall, we would highly recommend this hotel because of it's location and staff. The main Piazza del Duomo was about a 10 minute walk away... More

Stayed 3 nights in June 2016 our first visit to this city and it is worth a look in our view. Traveled from Catania via interbus straight from the airport. Not a bad trip, we intended to take the free bus from the coach terminal but took a taxi instead for €10 and it was money well spent - we... More

The hotel is very nice, with simple but comfortable rooms. The breakfast was adequate, and the service is friendly. The best thing about the hotel is the location. Right on the water (and even a stairway down to the beach). Would return if in Siracusa for sight--seeing.

Attractive location. Try to get a room overlooking the sea. Rooms moderate size, bed comfortable. Room clean. Staff and service are good and helpful. Nice restaurants nearby. Standard hotel room furnishing, comfortable, not luxurious.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The location of this hotel was perfect for us as its only 60 feet from the Cala Rossa beach (pebbly but the only decent sized beach in Ortigia) Also the location is right in the heart of the action when it comes to great restaurants, the beach, and sightseeing. The room was very impressive and... More

We arrived at the Royal Maniace Hotel and were greeted with a warm smile and a hearty welcome by the receptionist who told us she had a gift for us! The gift was a fabulous sized room at the front of the hotel with the most spectacular sea view. This little gem of a hotel sits in one of the... More
