We just returned from a 3 night stay at Hotel Posta, and have to say that we loved it! This hotel is a great value. The beds are comfortable, the place was spotless, the rooms were small, but quiet. If you are oversized, the bathrooms might be too small for comfort. The included breakfast was delicious - breads, cakes, cheese, hardboiled eggs, cold cuts, etc. You can dine outside on a small, but pretty walled terrace. The location is around the corner from a lively market where you can find plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. From the hotel, it's an easy walk to the marina, the other sites of Ortigia. You can also walk around the corner to the post office and mail off all those postcards you bought. (Take a number as soon as you enter, then wait your turn. Only send cards to your closest friends in the States because it ran us close to 2 Euros/card.). It's also an easy walk to the bus "station" (no actual building - just a small grey kiosk where tickets are sold) and lots of buses are lined up. Cheap tickets - about 4.5 Euros per person R/T to Noto. This hotel is a winner. The lobby is more like a small living room with comfortable chairs, free wifi, (we couldn't get the wifi to work in our room), a computer which can be used for .50 Euros for 15 or maybe 30 minutes, and a television. Female staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Male who was on duty at times didn't want to be interrupted. We also stayed at a much more expensive hotel on Ortigia during our stay, which had a larger room and bath and a pretty view, but smelled like a sewer. So, we were somewhat afraid of what to expect when we moved to Hotel Posta. But what a wonderfully pleasant surprise! This hotel is a home away from home!
