We stayed 7 nights. Good large rooms, with wifi available. The service is great no matter who you talk to and the location is near to the sea and the downtown where all the restaurants etc are located. A funny thing about the hotel is that even though they say they have a bar. They even have signs for it,... More

Domus Mariae used to be a convent which has been elegantly yet quaintly restored. The rooms are the smallest I have ever come across and some of them have no windows; a remainder of its Spartan past? Customer service is somewhat amusing at times by the modest knowledge of the English language. The views from the suits are sensational but... More

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
