IN the very center of Ortygia (Syracuse's island and historic center), the hotel is close from any point of interest. It is a small hotel (just a few rooms/floor) with lovely decoration (mosaic at the reception, old pictures of the city, warm colors) in a very old building. The staff is really helpful and they all have a great smile on their face. Rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated.
Some weak points: only Italian channels on TV (when you're stuck two days by very heavy rains and wind on Italian holidays, that means everything closed, you'd like a bit of English TV). Windows are not water-proof: floods in the room! Rooms are not acoustically isolated: you hear everything from the reception hall, and worse, from the street when a party occurs in front of the hotel's doors (until 3 o'clock). Breakfast is copious but you would certainly appreciate fresh bread, fruits, cheese rather than products from discount shops.
