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... More

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... More

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... More

Lovely hotel, I'd booked on Expedia and somehow didn't realise we had a whole suite, each room is spacious and the hotel is very charming. Excellent location and very nice, helpful staff. The only thing we found a bit odd was that the tap water in the hotel was salty, and no one warned us about this.

This isn't a normal hotel. You'll get a kitchen area in your room, but there are no tea bags, no minibar, no bar downstairs. But no objections if you bring in your own! There's no lift, and no offer to help with luggage, so it's up those stairs you'll go. There's no parking nearby, and you couldn't get a car... More

Stayed one night as our place had a problem! Beautiful interior rooms and Jewish baths under hotel. Our room and sitting room (or settees for kids) very large but a bit cold! Shower glass off rails therefore leaked. Grounds beautiful. Quiet.
