“Great staff, wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Gutkowski. The location is very convenient to everything in Ortigia as well as Siracusa. The view from the sea wall (which is located across a street), is beautiful. The room we stayed in was spacious and very, very clean. We also found it fairly quiet despite being located in front of the road. We spent several afternoons on the terrace enjoying the afternoon sun with a glass of wine and some antipasta we picked up at the grocery store. We also enjoyed the complimentary granita that was available in the late afternoon. The breakfast was more than adequate with fresh fruit and many other items to choose from. The staff was amazing, especially Christina who was very helpful and spent a great deal of time helping us with dinner suggestions. All in all, a charming, clean, pleasant place to stay in Ortigia. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are very nice, but if you prefer quiet, you can request a room in the back.

The hotel’s location is ideal: in front of the sea, with parking area and within easy walking distance of anything in Ortygia, including the best rated restaurants and sights. The rooms are small and bare bones but clean and perfectly adequate. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired with few choices, and it gets very crowded. We had to search for staff to get coffee each morning we were there; it was also the first time that a hotel had a sign that they would charge for a second cappuccino. Wifi is available but you need to get new passwords/login information every 24 hours, which is annoying and not particularly efficient. The hotel does have a very lovely deck with awning cover where you can relax or sunbathe while overlooking the sea and where they provide free granitas each evening. There is an amazing open market a few blocks away where you can get fresh prepared meals, and many hotel guests purchased lunch there and returned to enjoy their meal or snack on the deck. The hotel is also within very short walking distance to the only two places to swim in Ortygia (perhaps even Syracusa).

In general nice stylish hotel with a nice atmosphere. We stayed in the smallest room next to the terrace which was nice and fairly cheap. Although it seems that they have made an effort on the breakfast it didn't suit us and we found that we didn't like most if not all things.

I loved the area, and the hotel was very pleasant. Below average breakfast and a little drain smell, but hey, ancient building. Really nice staff, and would certainly stay again Syracuse is a terrific and fascinating town. History is everywhere, in depth!

We travelled by bus from Piazza Armerina (with a stop to change buses at Catania). We walked from the bus station (approx. 10 min walk). The hotel is located within the island of Ortygia. The hotel has rooms overlooking the sea. The decor is lovely, with extremely cozy public areas. Our room was interior but still it was great. The bathroom was huge, with a bathtub. The hotel is very close to all the sights in Ortygia and is also within walking distance of the archeological area and museum. Staff is really helpful and friendly and breakfast is great!

This hotel is small but that is part of the charm! We found it to be very comfortable and clean. It is very quiet but if your room is in the front facing the street, you hear the traffic since the hotel is on the main road that leads you out of Ortigia to the city Siracusa. When we step outside you are right by the sea and walking distance to points of interest in Ortigia. It has a very nice terrace. The breakfast was amazing! From a great variety of fresh fruits to cheeses, breads, croissants and a perfect cappuccino, I would recommend this hotel.

This was a great place for part of our family summer holiday as it was in a great location, only a short car journey from stunning nature reserve beaches and with an amazing market just around the corner from your front door, what more could you want?

We visited with 2 teens and a 10 year old and we all had a very enjoyable experience with fantastic weather and delightful staff. It really is more than you could expect for their price!
