We booked this hotel after a bad experience a few blocks away. We were pleasantly surprised by this little hotel. The rooms are fairly large and very clean. As are the bathrooms. Location is excellent, at the north end of Ortygia (old town). The staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. We would love to return.

Old grand building with much character in a good location in Orytgia. Basic, clean, and affordable ( affordable was much appreciated after Venice and Rome!) Staff was very available to help as needed. A stones throw from the lively town market.

The best thing about this hotel is the location, particulalry if you have a car. It is on the edge of the old town, easy to get to and out from. Parking is either on the street (some free and some paid) or in a paid car park within 50 metres. Rooms are smallish, we could still put two suitcases... More

Hotel Posta was very convenient for exploring Syracusa. The room was small but clean. The bed was a little uncomfortable as the mattress was quite firm. The breakfast had a good selection of sweet and savoury dishes. A continually flushing toilet was annoying and took 2 complaints and 2 visits by the plumber to have it fixed.

Would definitely stay here again and see no reason to look for any where else in Syracuse. The room is clean and comfortable, breakfast is a real highlight (especially if you like baked goods). The location on Ortigia is perfect and the staff are friendly and helpful. What more could you want for a very reasonable price.

I left my tour group a day early to stay in Siracusa, and the Posta was perfect. The price was great for a good size room, nice lobby with a bar, and excellent location. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the farmers market, 5 minute walk to the bus stop, and 10 minutes to the center of the... More

What a wonderful little hotel this is! Laidback, slightly rundown, the owners are right to leave it exactly as it is, caught in a time warp and reminiscent of a past era. From the forlorn tree in the courtyard entrance to to the green and red wooden shutters, this hotel allows you to soak in the peculiar ambience of Ortigya,... More
