This is a lovely clean set of rooms in the centre of Ortigia which we loved. The member of staff greeting us was exceptionally helpful and his advice made our stay in Siracusa that much better. The only down side was that we were there on a Saturday night and the night life of the area doesn't get lively until... More

After some very tiring weeks, we left for our honeymoon in search of new impressions and relaxation. We found it in this very nice and cozy place, and centrally located, we were right away in the historical heart of the old city. Francesco and his statt were very much going out of their way to help and to give us... More

This is a good base to stay in of you want to have Ortygia as a base. It is tucked away just behind one of the main roads in a very quiet cul-de-sac and is very convenient for getting to other places. The apartment is clean and comfortable and the host is very friendly and nice (as other reviewers point... More

Hard pressed to complain about anything involving the Residenza Arco Antico. Francesco along with his staff of Anna and Giuseppe were the most pleasant individuals to serve you. The apartment I had in room 102 was modest but given the remarkably discreet location in Ortigia not expensive. Small kitchen but enough to decide when to use. Complainers about street noise...

The customer care was awesome! We had to cancel one of the nights of our trip and the owner called us and manage it without problem. The location is very convenient as well, all the amenities are in walk distance. The next time that we'll come back , we know where to stay!

I echo the sentiments of other reviewers that Francesco is the nicest host/concierge I've ever come across in my entire life. Genuine, sweet, always helpful. I will always remember him. I did not meet the other proprietor mentioned in other reviews. Our apartment was huge and clean with 12 ft ceilings and attractive furnishings and two good sized balconies overlooking... More

Situated near the Temple of Apollo on Ortigia Island these apartments are in a perfect position for visiting Siracusa. Just off a main shopping street and close to the fabulous local food market. Plenty of restaurants and bars are close by and it's only a few minutes walk across the bridge to the new town. The apartment we stayed in... More

There are lots of positives about this apartment. The location is good, at the north end of the island of Ortigia, not far from the bridge across, so you have good access to the rest of Ortigia plus also the train station and buses which are in the other part of town. They are about a 20 minute walk away.... More

Arco Antico is in the very centre of Syracuse's Isola Ortigia, just off one of the high streets. It's run by two friendly guys, with lots of advice for our stay and always available on phone or in reception. It's a small aparthotel, no breakfast. The rooms are modern and relatively spacious and the building is quaintly old.
