Clean hotel, convenient walking to everythiPosted Nov 2, 2017
Clean hotel, convenient walking to everything in Ortigia. Lobby not very comfortable for lounging but excellent rooftop bar in the evening. Spa is very basic with really just a workout room, small pool, sauna, and a few rooms for spa service.

Not easy to find because a detour confused the GPSPosted Oct 28, 2017
Pros: The most positive thing about this hotel was its location within walking distance to the Piazza Duomo which had several outdoor dining restaurants.
Location: The hotel is in walking distance to the City Tour bus which is one of those hop on hop off tour buses, and the bus give a good overview of the city.
The hotel is very old and dated....not sure how it keeps a 5-Star rating. The Reception staff is nice and tries to be helpful. The roof top restaurant is very nice and the food is good. The night view with the lights on the water is pretty, but not "magical" as someone described it.

Great location for historical centerPosted Sep 26, 2017
I chose this hotel for its location, views and convenience to see the old town during our limited stay. It was overall relaxing, hotel generally clean but we had limited time, one night. We drove and had to do an extra lap of the town as the entrance has scaffolding around it - not obvious to see. Parking and drop of space was also limited, valet parking off site is 10euro a day. Our hire car was returned with some small scratches to the rear which the hire company fortunately did not query (you may wish to photograph the four corners.) The room was lovely, view from balcony overlooking the harbour spectacular we enjoyed our stay. Our bathroom was a bit tired, bath/shower especially - it does seem they are renovating.

Disappointing at bestPosted Jul 1, 2017
Pros: Not much, other than the location.
Cons: The service mindedness of staff. The hotel is not living up to its former glory and could do with an upgrade.
We stayed at this hotel seven years ago and had a wonderful experience. This time not. On arrival the staff could be best described as grumpy. The room was dark and dingy. For the three nights we were there the air-conditioning was not working. Three times I informed the reception with no action being taken. This was at the same time as a heat wave was sweeping southern Europe. In fairness we got 20% off the room as a result, but to be honest it was little compensation for three sleepless and hot nights.
Very nice hotel, rooms needs modernizingPosted Jun 12, 2017 on Hotels
Very nice hotel with a great location, pool and spa facility good, the roof top bar and restaurant is a must at sunset, great cocktails and food amazing, sea view rooms do have an incredible sea view, great staff and close to everything on the island. Our room was very clean however did look a little tied, out dated and in need of a refit, especially the bathroom. Overall a good hotel at a reasonable rate but it could be so much nicer if they updated the rooms to a better standard.
