We stayed here for seven nights. This is more of an apartment rental than a hotel. The building is gorgeous and really well located for exploring the island. We enjoyed the living area, separate bedrooms, and access to a terrace and stroller parking in the lobby. (We were travelling with a four-month-old baby.) It is quiet. You will be charmed...

My daughter and I stayed on the top floor which had a small kitchenette and a lovely balcony with sea views. We drove to Ortigia, not realising that it would be close to impossible to find a car park around the area, however we did. Breakfast was delicious and in abundance. Staff were helpful. There is no lift in the...

Hotel situated in a great location. However we were not pleased to find out that we had to stay in the Anex building . We were not told that this is walking distance from the main hotel. No Internet in the anex which was a huge inconvenience for us. The rooms were dark, and at 6 am the garbage trucks...

Our first night wasn't great - we booked the loft apartment with sea views - which wasn't a loft and didn't have sea views - was in a separate building so didn't have access to wifi and had to walk back to the hotel for breakfast. However after explaining my disappointment the reception staff were great and offered an alternate...

This is a small B& B residence, rather than a hotel. All of the rooms are suites. Breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast with more sweets than anything substantial. The best part of this hotel is the location. You can walk to any part of Ortigia from this hotel. I would have given five stars, but didn't because the receptionist...

The building itself has loads of character - think stone arches and interesting features - and is in a great central location in beautiful Ortigia. However, it is more a set of apartments than a hotel which may be, in part, a reason for the appalling customer service (more of that later). Rooms/apartments are large and that seems to be...

The hotel looks nice and charming - But the staff can (without keeping you informed) relocate you in another building, in front of the hotel, which is composed of flat-rooms (i.e. with a poor kitchen and a really basic bathroom) - Absolutely not charming (i.e. lights not working etc...) - Even though we had called few days before our arrival,...

If you are captivated by the enchanting photo of the Residence Alla Giudecca's courtyard garden think again! This is only used for marketing purposes, and access to this outdoor space is by permission only with a special key. The garden is kept locked at all times, and is not generally used by residents. You will find no signs for the...
