Me and my wife spent our one week long holiday here. The personal were very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfartable. The loocation was good with only 10m walk to the old town Ortigia. And there is free parking and wifi. Great vacation at a great hotel

Stayed: July 2014, traveled as a couple

The location is good if you want to stay near the Roman theater and museum, it is like 10 minutes walking distance from there. But if you want to go to the city center - Ortigia, either you need a car to drive there or on foot like 30-40 minutes.

The area is not bad but we really did not like it, the quarter is old and grey...middle class area.
The hotel's main entrance is the same as the condo's where the hotel is located. And it dos not have a big signal with the hotel's name. Same with the elevator, which you must share with the neighbours.

Once you reach the hotel's floor, everything changes. The place os super cute, calm, clean, etc, Rooms are also very good, super clean and huge, the only con I would say when you open the window and see the neighbours.

Breakfast was ok, not the better one but it was fine.

Nearby you can park the car free of charge but on the street.
Syracusa is not cheap, so this is a good option for budget reservations, and if you know where the hotel is.

First impressions at street level not encouraging but once inside, we were delighted with the facilities and the warm welcome. Rooms were spacious and bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast excellent and staff very helpful with restaurant recommendations etc. Close to archeological park and the hideous modern church which is not worth a visit but will always guide you back! A pleasant 20 minute walk takes you in to Ortigia.

Don't be put off by the strange entrance door. This is a friendly hotel which is well sited for Ortigia and the old Greek/Roman ruins. The walk to Ortigia will take you 20 mins but that's not too far!
Room was comfortable with a very good double bed, free wi-fi and a good sized bathroom. They have Sky TV but only at additional cost.
We overlooked the wacky church which looks like an inverted ice cream cone. It is worth a visit however.
Breakfast was very good with the only scrambled eggs and bacon we encountered in a 2 week, 7 hotel holiday. Reception staff were very helpful.
There is free on-street parking.
This is a great budget hotel for Syracuse and worth a stay.

Very good location to see all the sights in Siracusa! Everything is in walking distance. Very clean, convenient, friendly staff - especially Signora Lucia! She was very pleasant & helpful - made us feel like at home! Rooms very clean & comfortable , ours was view of the Sanctuario Madonna della Lacrime- Breakfast very nice with lots of options.
Was a little hard to find, because its not really a "hotel" but I appreciated the coziness!

Room Tip: Request room with view when booking.

It is a good, typical "feel like hotel" hotel. No specials drills or buzz. Breakfast includes ham, cheese, scrabbled eggs etc which is nice for a change from typical "only sweets" Italian breakfast. The walk to Ortigia was not so long - 10-15 min and pleasant.
