Alla Guidecca in Siracusa

Location is fine. Rooms vary in desirability and no way of knowing ahead of time what you will get. We found most of the staff sullen, begrudging, resentful and usually not helpful with the exception of the breakfast waitress. On arrival we were given a room with beds set up as a double (twin beds with common sheet and blankets) and not with separate twin beds as we requested. When we objected, we were told it would have to wait until the next day. After more complaints and with our separating the beds ourselves and removing the linen and blanket, proper bedding was supplied., The front desk hours were not posted and were erratic and limited (from 8 in the morning until 7 or 8 in the evening). Public rooms were nice but not available when front desk was closed. Breakfast and amenities were not commensurate with room rate we received in other similar rate hotels. Breakfast waitress was pleasant. Salon was inadequately lit and furniture in the salon h was not inviting. TV didn’t work and was not serviced as requested. No porch light and our path up the stairs to our room and to find the lock in the dark was not easy. Incorrect information was given as to hours mikveh could be viewed and the charge of 5 Euros, even for guests, , should have been accompanied with some printed information as the explanation was meager and sterile. The courtyard near our room was pleasant and the refrigerator and table for dining were useful. We were not told of the charming porch reached by the steep winding stairs inside our rooms and didn’t try to ascend until just before leaving as curiousity led us to look at what we thought would be a loft that was not needed by us. It would have been nice to use and we wondered why we weren't informed of the porch.
