Ordinarily I would have rated the hotel at about 4 because there was no minibar in the room. However, Giovanni, the proprietor, allows you to use the kitchen and the refrigerator. Thus, you have all of the comforts of being at your home. The hotel is located right in the center of Ortygia on an upscale shopping street. You are within easy walking distance of everything you will want to see on the island. If you are arriving at the train or bus station, there is a city bus that serves the island about every half hour. If you miss the bus or can't find the stop, it is only about a 15 minute walk to the hotel. What will make your stay here special is the fact that Giovanni is a most gracious host. He has a remarkable grasp of the history of Siracusa, and will basically serve as your personal tour advisor should you desire.

Wonderful B&B perfectly located on Ortygia (Siracusa). The B&B is in a beautiful old building right on the Piazza Archimedes, though our room was protected from any noise on the piazza by facing a quiet side street. The host was welcoming and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and itinerary. The room was well air-conditioned and comfortable. Breakfast was good and served in a cheerful, sunny room overlooking the Piazza.

This was a period building with several apartments within it.
It was not a hotel and this was a deliberate choice on our part (my wife and I).
Our apartment was on the top floor (3 in total) but there was a modern lift if you preferred.
The apartment was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed for any self catering, although we did tend to eat out for most of our week long stay, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The proprietor, Luca, was excellent in terms of pre-arrival communication with relevant advice. He met us on arrival and reiterated the advice and added more information and provided a useful information pack. Although we didn't need him for anything, he provided no less than 3 contact numbers for him or relevant members of his immediate family in case we had a query or needed something.
The location was very good and from outside the building looked like it could have been occupied by local residents.

My room overlooked the square, so was a little noisy but it was right in the middle of Siricusa and an excellent location. I parked the car about 5-10 mins away and could have could the circular bus to/from it, but chose to walk. Their English was better than my Sicilian/Italian!

A wonderful b&b in a great location in historic Ortygia. We loved the very central location with several restaurants, local shops and all the sights nearby and all within walking distance. The host is very accommodating and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent, with lots of choice and very good local produce. The whole b&b is spotlessly clean with lots of attention to detail. Highly recommended.
