great hotel, excellent staffPosted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: The location, friendly staff and in-house restaurant.
Location: Overlooks the harbour, easy access to beach as a result. Easy to get to the main sites in Ortygia as well as nr bus stop for Parco Archeologico
Just checked out and had a great experience. The staff are faultless - always helpful, friendly and available. The location is perfect, overlooking the harbour. Breakfast and dinner are served in the top floor restaurant, and food always good. Private beach access comes with hotel stay which is good if you choose not to travel far for the beach. Overall, highly recommended.

Beautiful hotel in a perfect location.Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Its location, the roof terrace and breakfast were excellent.
Cons: There could be more in- room information.TV/Sky instructions and perhaps some history of the hotel.
Location: There are many excellent places to eat. Teatro Grecco in Syracuse is worth a visit. You will enjoy a trip to the hotels private beach by boat.
Initially we were put off by the website photos of the bedrooms. This was a mistake, the room we had (217) exceeded our expectations. It was nicely decorated, was of a good size, had lots of storage, 2 large windows and a good size bathroom with a shower/ jacuzzi bath and bidet. The air conditioning was a little below parr but did keep the room at a comfortable level. The hotel is beautifully restored, smells so clean everywhere, has a wonderful view over the harbour from the roof terrace. The breakfast is excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. It is true (previous review) there are some works taking place to accommodate cruise ships, we believe, but is far enough away not to be too intrusive. There are lots of good places to eat within easy walking distance that you are really spoilt for choice.

Short StayPosted Jun 19, 2014
Pros: Very pleasant
Cons: No suggestions
Location: Good location for walk into centre of Ortiga and the many good cafes and restuarants and the duomo.
It was just a one night stay but we would like to have stayed longer. It was a very good location, the staff were very courteous, the room had a good view out to sea and the breakfast was excellent.

Lovely hotel in charming part of SiracusaPosted Jun 12, 2014
Pros: Location, friendliness of staff, cleanliness of room and good choice at breakfast.
Cons: Although there is a spa, there is no pool available.
Location: Wonderful Archaeological Park with Greek and Roman remains. Winding medieval streets in Ortigia, full of places to eat.
This hotel is close to the harbour and within easy reach of good places to eat. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. Our room was comfortable and quiet and the breakfast choice, served on the top floor and outside terrace of the hotel, was excellent. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location.Posted May 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great location and view of harbor. A little rough around the edges Not truly a 5 star hotel, although may have been at one time. Great breakfast venue on roof top with terrific views and good quality breakfast. Free use of Bicycles was an extra benefit.

Great hotel in a perfect locationPosted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: The location, the cleanliness, the food and wines and the service
Cons: The only improvement would have been more storage space for clothes (we had a triple room)
Location: Great location on Ortigia, within walking distance of all the main Syracuse attractions
The staff were very welcoming and the hotel seemed freshly renovated. The breakfast was excellent and hotel spotlessly clean. Location wise, the hotel overlooks the bay on the lovely island part of Ortigia (Syracuse).

Great little hotel with a lovely breakfastPosted Apr 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
Really enjoyed the location of the hotel. The beds are very dated and not very comfortable unfortunately. The staff could be a little more friendly.
