Hotel Archimede B&B was recommended in a recent Rough Guide edition (1993) as an OK budget accommodation. We have just returned and wanted to advise that we were not pleased with this hotel even though we found Rough Guide very reliable in all other instances. Most of this hotel's staff were cold, unfriendly and inattentive. The hotel itself is only meters away from the train station on a busy street close to a somewhat rundown piazza between the city of Siracusa and the island of Ortygia. Although close to the train, it was not noisy although that might be because we think we were only one of two rooms occupied. Our room was dark, lit only with fluorescent lights and had extensive mould in the bathroom and some mould also on the bedroom walls. There was a small breakfast available although one day we were reprimanded for coming down too early for it (15 minutes before the official "breakfast time"), even though it had all been laid out before we came to the dining room. Considering the price (we paid 70E) I would not recommend staying at this hotel for any reason.
