The practical location, 5min by walk from the train/bus station and 3min to Ortigia, makes this an ideal hotel for the less busy months where the free shuttle (navetta) is nowhere to be seen. The rates for the rooms are cheap for a 4 star, but you will quickly realise the hotel is more in line with a 3 star rather than a 4 star. The staff is impeccable, helpfull and smart. The downside; rooms lack attention to detail as compared to the rest of the hotel and need of proper good maintinance (As some claim, lamps with no shades is true. Our TV was disconnected from the hotel-tv feed and I had to move furniture to re-connect it. The bathroom had a good powerfull hot shower but we had a fault with hot water at the wash basin, which we did not report since it was no major issue for us, consumed toilet paper was not replaced ont he last day). The breakfast service needs huge improvments, I've had much better breakfast at hotels rated 3stars and in agriturisimo. Overall, hotel is good value for money if you can live with the above, which we did.
