The room was spacious with a very tiny balcony. The shower had mineral buildup on it so the water didn't flow properly. With the exception of the day the cleaning staff did not come, the room was very clean. There weren't many options at breakfast but they were always refilled quickly. Wifi was only available in the lobby.

My wife and I appreciated the small personal touches at the hotel-great restaurant and activity recommendations by the staff, and the fact that there is always someone at the desk-they wait until all guests are back for the evening before locking the front door. However, you can stay out late as the desk is staffed 24/7. At breakfast (included in... More

I have stayed three times in this hotel. Some twenty years or so it even had a good restaurant at street level. I'm used to visit Syracuse by yacht,but in the winter visit on errands. This hotel is a perfect getaway,with helpful reception and a few hundred metres from some of the best restaurants one can dream of! I'll be... More

The hotel is nicely located just one block away from the sea/harbor, although not easy to find. All staffs were very kind and worked promptly in responding to my requests. Buffet breakfast was very good in a cozy bright room. For money-saver, I recommend to go to a grocery store just across the street, one minute walk from the hotel.... More

My wife and I stayed in the Gran Bretagna for five nights in May. What marks this hotel out as very special is the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff from those at reception to the waiter who served us our (excellent) breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious and unusual, with ours having a wonderful fresco on the ceiling. The... More

This hotel is situated on Ortigia; the very heart of Siracusa. It is very close to many restaurants and the hotel is really nice; clean, fresh and good service from the friendly personnel. In addition, the hotel had two private parking lots just outside the hotel. I can really recommend this hotel!

I've just spent ten days working in Syracuse and I feel really lucky to have come across this hotel. Apart from the brilliant location, it's one of the friendliest and most welcoming places I've ever stayed in. The staff were wonderful and did their best to make it feel like 'home from home'. I've stayed in more luxurious hotels but... More
