At least the reception girls are very nice.

The hotel is old without a proper elevator, it uses an old storage very slow lift. But it doesn't get you on the top floor, you have to walk the last floor. The surrounding area is a third world area, dirty, chaotic, with no parking spaces. The room was big with a funny barred enclosed balcony that looks nowhere.

Good location

Posted May 10, 2017
Pros: Location, price, comfort
Cons: Nothing
Location: 10 minute walk into the old town - able to park right outside.
Good location and had everything we needed to explore Siracusa. It was very comfortable with a nice breakfast and helpful staff.

Well located but mixed service

Posted Apr 11, 2017 on Hotels
Well situated midway between Archeological Park and Orteiga. Service very mixed, mainly we guessed, because some staff had not been trained. Various advertised amenities didn't happen e.g. room not available as advertised, no promised free parking, empty minibar, no coffee on first morning. Reasonably good value if advertised amenities are delivered.

See Syracuse

Old hotel with friendly staff. Splendidly ancient and rickety (hydraulic) lift. No reserved parking so that can be a problem. Kettle provided but no coffee/tea so take your own!

Dear Mr. John, thank you for your review ! All the issues highlighted by our precious Guests are very appreciated to always improve oure service standards. Unluckly we don't offer, and we don't advertise online, reserved parking. Anyway the in the hotel nearby there are a lot of FREE parkings, very close to the Hotel Mediterraneo***. We are very sorry your tea/coffe set was empty... We hardly reproach our staff for this serious forgetfulness ! But why you didn't promptly ask for tea and coffè to our reception staff ??? I hope to see you again and we wish you all the best !!! Hotel Mediterraneo The Direction

Close to all tourist spots, very helpful staff

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, free and easy parking
Cons: Stronger wifi in the rooms
Location: Ortygia island and the Archeological park in Syracuse, all easily and cheaply reached by the local bus stopping nearby.
Reserved parking in front of the door, easy access to/from the autostrada and tourist spots in Ortygia and Syracuse. The staff was able to book ferry tickets from Catania to Naples when our flight was unexpectedly cancelled with no alternate flights available and no travel agency open. The wifi is strongest in the lobby. The room and breakfast are good. Good value for money.

I spent a pleasant week here.

Family-style. Walking distance to the long-distance bus station & the railway station. About 6 city blocks from the start of the old town & from the Greek theatre uphill in the opposite direction. Antiquated elevator, but only two flights of stairs to the top. Nice room, recently redecorated.

Central Location

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: It had nice common areas and a good breakfast.
Location: The immediate area is a little rough, but we had no problems.
The location is close to restaurants, the historical areas and the train station. We walked to the island and the train station and took a local bus to the museum and archeological area.
