Hotel Como is perfectly located for a stopover for people travelling with public transport. It's opposite the station and just around the corner from the bus stop. The area around the station is very rundown and even though it might not necessarily be dangerous I would not like to walk around there alone at night in winter. But in summer it was fine. The hotel looks recently renovated and the room, though basic, was very comfortable. Although travelling alone I had a double room. The bed was perfect for me though the pillows were terrible. Service was courteous and very efficient. Breakfast was basic but adequate. I'd read reviews that mentioned the smell of cigarette smoke so when I booked I asked for a non-smoking room and it was fine.
It was about a 30 minute walk to the archeological area and 15-20 minutes to the start of Ortygia. If you are visiting Siracusa for a few days' holiday, I would definitely recommend staying on Ortygia as it's much nicer, but for what I wanted (one night stopover while travelling around Sicily by bus) it was perfect.
