This Hotel was perfectly situated for exploring Ortigia and nearby Syracuse. We landed at Catania about 9pm and eventually got away from the airport in our hire car after 10pm. Travelling at night wasn't the easiest but we found the Hotel more by luck than judgement having forgotten to get satnav at the car hire. We parked on a disabled space outside the Hotel but the receptionist took our keys and moved it later. There is a parking area opposite the hotel which we always managed to get into with the help of the unofficial attendants for a couple of Euros a time and the occasional beer. The room was a decent size and the bathroom fully equipped although our shower tray filled up but allowed enough time for a shower before overflowing. The Staff were excellent. Breakfast was plentiful. Dinner in the evening was a bit limited and disappointing so we eat out. Numerous restaurants made this very easy and fun. It did not take long to work out routes in and out of Ortigia either on foot or by car. There is no shortage of things to see, Noto being a must as well as Montalbano's Casa at Punta Secca (if your a fan). Highly recommended, the visitors book says it all.
