Lovely hotel, great location, excellent value
Posted Nov 1, 2015 on Hotels
My two sons and I stayed here for two nights. It was perfect from start to finish. A jewel box of a hotel down a picturesque narrow alley, five minute walk to the Duomo, two minute walk to the Arethusa Fountain. Our room was spacious and lovely with four solid bars on the wifi. We were on the third floor, but there is an elevator, retrofitted into the 18th century building, and it was convenient for the lovely breakfast on the rooftop patio. Breakfast had a huge assortment of delicious items, including (real) scrambled eggs, bacon, multiple types of pastries and breads, home made jams, cereals, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee any way you could possibly want it. The staff was lovely and incredibly helpful. I heartily recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Ortygia. It was lovely, convenient and incredibly good value for the money.
