The Royal Maniace is a beautifully remodeled hotel in what originally was a monastery built in ca. 1700. The interior space has been totally redone to modern standards. Our room was a deluxe double with sea view and balcony. The room was quite spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a large bathroom. Views from the balcony were spectacular. Hotel staff were... More

We booked the hotel last minute, 2 hours prior to arrival. The concierge was very helpful with parking our car and checking in was a matter of seconds. Our room was nice, with a beautiful sea view and value is very good. Only a small note is the perfume in our room which was way too intrusive. Still I would... More

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location right on the Ionian Sea. Breakfast was good. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. If you have a fragrance intolerance, call ahead and ask them not to spray your room.

Wonderful location on the quieter side of Ortygia. Room had a beautiful view of the sea. Within walking distance of all the sights on the island. Helpful staff and off site valet parking. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I loved this place! We had a superior room with a mini balcony looking out to the small public beach and sea. It was great to be able to walk out the front door and take a dip before breakfast. Ortigia is beautiful! This hotel is quiet at night and close to everything. We enjoyed our stay.

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
