I stayed here on my own a few years ago and couldn't wait to get back to share this wonderful place with my husband- that probably says it all! Thanks to the lovely Cinzia for remembering me and welcoming me back so warmly- but in fact all the staff are terrific and could not be more helpful or charming. We... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Nice accommodation but the room colour (lime green) reminded me a bit too much of the catholic schools I attended. The breakfast left me desiring more but I am used to a dairy and meat based diet which is somewhat different to the Mediterranean. All-in-all a very friendly and comfortable accommodation.

We booked a double room at Domus Mariae at very short notice after an earlier hotel reservation unexpectedly fell through. Domus Mariae is an annex to Domus Mariae Benessere situated across the road facing a small square. Breakfast is taken in the larger hotel. Breakfast was typically basic but good. Paying extra will get you a cooked breakfast tho we... More

There is No elevator, but the room is great and the service is friendly and efficient. Breakfast is fantastic. Good location in the middle of Oritigia and a great number of restaurants near by. Staff in reception speaks understandable english. Highly recommended.

Our room had a stunning view over the Ionian Sea. It was so lovely to wake up to. The room also had air conditioning which made things very comfortable in the hot weather at the end of June. Nicely sprung beds too and plenty of space. But above all was the friendly welcome and ongoing support of Cinzia and her... More

My wife and I stayed at the Domus Mariae hotel on Ortygia during our recent visit to Siricusa, Sicily. We had a fabulous view of the sea from the balcony in our comfortable and well kept room. The hotel and the its larger companion across the street, the Domus Mariae Bennesere, are run by the Ursuline nuns, which is reflected... More

Receptionists speak perfect English and were able to answer all our questions. Very courteous, friendly, and especially patient. Our room 201 was large with a small balcony overlooking the Ionian Sea. No bath but a shower. There is a blow-dryer, and a mini-bar but no iron. King size bed and a couch that would fold out as another bed. The... More

Sadly we could only stay one night, but would love to have stayed longer. The hotel is in a wonderful building, breakfast was across the road in their other delightful building. Room was spotless, with very comfortable beds and a little balcony that overlooked the sea, utterly charming. Breakfast was typically buffet style but you can add items from a... More

This charming hotel is in a great location overlooking the sea and within easy walking distance of everything in historic Ortygia. Our room was spotlessly clean and came with a small balcony that overlooked the street and ancient church below. There is an amazing rooftop terrace, open to guests, where one can sunbathe or eat a meal overlooking the absolutely... More

I was here for two nights in May. It's run by a convent with amazing help staff and amazing views. The breakfasts were sumptuous, held in a very nice room. I totally loved the experience. The bathrooms are a bit larger than most hotels, they are clean and well kept. Drains however tend to be a bit slow but we... More
