Perfect B&B on Ortigia IslandPosted Oct 1, 2014
What's not to like? We had a "mini suite" - plenty of room to move around. On arrival, we pulled right up to the B&B and then the receptionist jumped in the car to help us find appropriate parking! Breakfast was excellent, with many interesting selections. Wifi worked. Good advice offered also re restaurants in the area. The only downside is steep stairs to climb, but if stairs are not an issue for you, the B&B La Via della Giudecca is a great choice!

Great location, great breakfasts!Posted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: It's central location, the beautiful, historic building and the breakfasts.
Cons: It's a personal choice, but we found the bed rather too hard for our liking; other than that, it was perfect!
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.

Stay here on OrtygiaPosted Mar 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great rooms, location, and service. Wonderful abundant breakfast. Drop off luggage and then go find free parking on the Belvedere, anywhere within white lines. Left the car overnight with no problem. Good shopping as you walk toward bridge to archaeology sites, which are not to be missed!! We walked there and back but you probably can take a cab. Staff gave us great recommendation for trattoria. Visit baroque square and cathedral at dusk. Lovely.

Great B&B highly recommendedPosted Oct 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Well-located to wander the most atmospheric streets of Ortigia and just a few minutes from the main piazzas for sightseeing. The rooms are lovely, staff are very friendly, there is free wifi (a bit patchy in our room, but there are two computers in the reception area) and the breakfast buffet was superb (especially loved the cheese tartlets).

Once we found the b & b we were very comfortable. Anything we needed they helped us with. The place is charming and oh-so-clean. The breakfast was more than enough. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Very difficult to drive to, even with directions. I hope they can improve that.

It would be hard to beatPosted Oct 22, 2012
Pros: Excellent location at the heart of Ortigia.
Cons: No security box but the room door would be suitable for Fort Knox.
Location: In the heart of the old Jewish district and only a few minutes walk from Piazza Archimede and the Duomo
All the positive comments that others have made are true. This was one of the best hotels - it is a hotel rather than a B&B - that we have ever stayed in. The location was superb: central, of historic interest, with a lot of life in the evening. The hotel fully deserves its high rating If we were to return to Ortigia we would be very disappointed if we could not get a room here.

Modern, Lovely, and Friendly!Posted Mar 5, 2012
Though in an older building, the guest rooms and public space have recently been updated and are beautiful. Our room (#10) was a beautiful, very modern suite, with a comfy bed. It had a nice, new kitchenette, but few pots and pans or cooking goods (olive oil, salt, etc.) to work with, so we really didn't use it. The staff is SUPER nice and eager to provide anything you need. The owner, Giuseppe, is gallant and solicitous; Roberta speaks English well and can advise you about attractions, restaurants, etc. Our room had a washing machine, and she was kind enough to offer the hotel's dryer -- a Godsend! "Johnny" makes sure you have everything you need for breakfast -- the breakfast buffet is lavish, with cold cuts (prociutto, salami, etc.) cheese, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, and wonderful pastries. Fresh coffee drinks & juice made from freshly squeezed oranges is delivered from a nearby bar. There's WIFI service in each guest room, and a nice, fast connection in the lobby, where there are two large-screen terminals which can be used, free, by guests. All in all, a great find!

We loved it. Very comfortable and beautifully restored old building in the heart of old Siracusa. The help and advice from Roberta was marvellous. Only thing we would have changed: fresh bread at breakfast. Coffee was something I shall miss for a long time though. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The room-flat was great and beautiful. The cleaning and location as perfect, but without view of the city. The hotel is great but only during the morning you have someone at reception (at least in low season)
