5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very good price for simple immaculately clean ensuite room. On Ortigia and easy walk to everything. Area may look a little run down if you arrive t night (as I did) but typical Sicilian old town and very safe.

Stayed 7 nights in Apr 2019

Not What We Paid For

The description of this place is completely wrong. All of the amenities that are included in the description of the room we booked did not exist or were laughably inaccurate. There was no wi-fi, either in the room or in the hotel at all. There was no private kitchen, or washer-dryer or rainfall shower head. There were no complimentary toiletries, unless a bottle of hand soap with a pump counted. The receptionist spoke no English and was extremely rude when when we asked simple questions about internet use. I am extremely disappointed with this selection and caution anyone who is thinking about booking this particular place.

Convenient location

Location was easy o find, shops and restaurants nearby. Able to walk to places of interest.

4/5 Good

Our stay at Artemide in Syracuse, Sicily.

On the plus side, the Artemide is very well situated in Ortigia - close to the sea, and walking distance to the central Piazza Duomo. The free Ortigia-round shuttle passes very close-by. Our room was very clean. We were surprised to find that breakfast was available in Piazza Archimede - a five minute walk from the B&B - and not on site. We were given tickets to present each day at the Bar Centrale. Very nice pastries both savoury and sweet available and coffee. However, breakfast only included one coffee and one pastry each. If you wanted more, you had to pay - coffee Euros 2.50 a cup and pastries from Euros 2.00. We are two coffee people, and it adds up on top of room rate. It turned out that it was very pleasant to have breakfast here and watch the world go by, but we should have been told in advance. The big minus for the Artemide for us was the beds. The mattresses and pillows appeared to be constructed of bricks, and were the most uncomfortable we have ever experienced in any hotel or B&B. We suffered sleepless nights, as it was literally impossible to get comfortable. Such a shame - spoiled our stay. Other minus was we were asked to pay in cash - no credit card payment facility available.

Pros: Vert clean and good location for visiting Ortigia's places of interest.

Cons: Beds - mattresses and pillows.

Location: Very convenient for sightseeing - most walking distance or via the free Ortigia-wide shuttle.

Jewel in siracusa

Artemide is a stylish but welcoming place that drops you into the center of Ortygia. Our host picked us up from the train despite our late arrival. The attendants were also very helpful directing us around the city.
