I can’t for the life of me remember, but it was either the odd-numbered or even-numbered rooms that were just fine. (We were happily ensconced in rooms to the rihgt as you stood facing the hotel.)

Having traveled throughout southern Italy for several weeks and spent some time in the good, the bad and the ugly, this waterfront hotel was a pleasant accommodation.

Slightly cramped but well appointed rooms, in this hotel on Ortigia Island. If you prefer to sleep with windows open rather than ac or heating, you may find the evenings/early hours noisy from local bars and the "passeggiare" of locals along the front, but thats a penalty of downtown living,,, Go out and have another cocktail! Excellent bar/patio on the... More

Vintage-style hotel, with comfortable rooms, and very good location in Ortigia district. Wifi and buffet breakfast are included in room rates, which makes it a good deal. The hotel is on the seaside, with possibility of rooms with view.
