Ok hotel

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Cons: Informing fellow guests to keep the foot level noise down at night as floors are wooden.
Located in the Old Town. Parking spaces are limited. Stayed for 3 nights and was disappointed to get a room (basic, but clean) with no balcony, facing the back. Roof terrace - great place to chill and sip free granitas late afternoon. Breakfast is simple cold buffet. Friendly staff.

Looked at the outside and thought it would be bad but was pleasantly surprised when I got to my room. It's in an old building (that's what you want in Siracusa) but I felt comfortable and the price was right.

The ONLY good thing was the location

Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was VERY small and no air conditioning. The location was great, BUT, when checking in at 8:00pm I told the desk clerk where I was parked, (on the street), he said NO PROBLEM. When we checked out our car was gone and had been towed. 2 hours and $120 later to get the car. Find another hotel nearby and you will be much happier.

Arty hotel but choose room carefully!

A busy place in a busy town, we were frustrated with the air conditioning. Staff great but with so many tourists to care for they forgot some requests.

Everything we wanted

Posted May 31, 2013
We had a short, but most enjoyable stay in Syracuse, including attending a most magnificent production at the ancient Greek theatre. We were able to walk everywhere from the hotel and found a charming restaurant very close by. The staff were very helpful. Rosemary & Mike

Characterful stay

Posted May 14, 2012
Lovely characterful place. Good restaurant in hotel and great one nearby. Excellent breakfast. Emailed to say that we needed a twin room but they didn't reply and only had a double when we arrived.

The Hotel Gutkowski in Ortygia - delightful

Posted Oct 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
When we first arrived at the Hotel Gut I was a bit disappointed that we weren't staying in the blue building shown on the website (we were in another building a few doors down) and our very small room with a sea view actually had more of a view of a busy, noisy road and a graffitied sea wall. Having said that, I quickly realised that where we were staying, with it's lovely breakfast room, lounge area and terrace, was perfect for our needs and wants. It's a simple yet delightful and stylishly quirky hotel in a great location on Ortygia and I would definitely stay there again. I would just upgrade to a room with all the pluses.
