Great hotel overlooking the Ionian Sea

Posted Apr 19, 2014
This hotel seems to be a recently converted residence in a section of mainland Siracuse off the street running along behind the sea-wall. The staff were helpful, pleasant, competent, and tolerant do poor Italian. Some staff spoke some English. The hotel is modern, with well designed interiors and very clean. The breakfasts were lovely and more ample than most in Southern Italy with coffee or tea, pastry, fruit, yogurt, and bruschetta with a variety of toppings including meat, cheese, and egg. The rooms are large with high ceilings. The rooms by the street open out with shutters to a view of the red moon over the Ionian Sea. The terraza shown in the website has a stunning view of the sea. Bring a sweater in spring or fall. So what's not to like? Well, it is about 2 kilometers from the main things that tourists come to see in Siracusa: the Parco Archeologico and Museum and the churches, shops, and Medieval streets of Ortygia. If you are on foot you will need to be quite fit to get to these sites. There are few restaurants near by, but one of the best in town, "Red Moon" is about an 800 meter walk from the front door.

Excellent service

Pros: The staff spoke good English and were very helpful with information. Parking at the front door.
Cons: There is no lift, however staff are helpful with luggage.
Location: Ortygia has many wonderful restaurants, narrow avenues to explore and historic monuments, with some marvellous views of the Harbour and mountains.
This hotel has the look and feel of a family run business who really care about the comfort of their guests. The staff were especially accommodating and helpful. only a short walk of 20 minutes to the wonderful Ortygia area of Syracuse and a wonderful restaurant just up the road.

Great hotel, friendly and relaxed, we loved it.

We stayed here for six nights in June 2013. It's a small family run hotel, and the owners could not have been more helpful or made us more welcome. The hotel is in a quiet location and has a very relaxed atmosphere. We picked it for its outdoor space - a beautiful terrace, and it was a joy to retreat to the hotel after a morning out at the archaeological remains or wandering round Ortigia. Few hotels in Siracusa have outdoor space, and certainly none of the others in this price range. It's about a 15 min walk into Ortigia, but we thought that compromise was well worth making. Breakfast was great - very Sicilian (you can have it served on the terrace if not too hot) and we were treated to a FANTASTIC meal one evening on the terrace. Catering for vegetarians didn't phase them. It was the best meal we had whilst in Siracusa. Make sure you ask them to cook for you if you stay here!

arrivati all'hotel non abbiamo trovato la camera

Posted Nov 8, 2015
Pros: non applicabile
Cons: l'attenzione alle prenotazioni
Location: non applicabile
Il giudizio è negativo seppure non abbiamo avuto il piacere di utilizzare la struttura. Appena arrivati nonostante avessimo conferma di prenotazione Expedia, la camera non era disponibile. Tra le altre, anche se fosse stata disponibile, il prezzo non sembrava quello giusto (57€ contro gli almeno 75€-80€ che normalmente fanno). Ci hanno dato indicazioni per altri albergh che per fortuna abbiamo trovato ma non al prezzo che loro avrebbero dovuto darci. Quindi qualcosa non ha funzionato nel sistema di prenotazione o lato loro o lato Expedia. Il nostro biasimo quindi va a chi ha causato il problema, ma loro stessi hanno fatto menzione di un errore commesso a comunicare la disponibilità delle stanze. La persona che ci ha accolti è stato comunque gentile e disponibile a suggerire altre sistemazioni.

Solo l'hotel basta x venire in Sicilia

Posted Aug 10, 2014
Pros: La terrazza sul mare
Cons: Tv in camera
Location: Posizione unica, vicino a tutto, anche a piedi, consigliato.
È un 3 stelle ma per posizione, personale, confort e stile potrebbe tranquillamente essere superiore. Ha una terrazza a picco sul mare che é un antidepressivo naturale! Dalla camera si vede un panorama fantastico. Mi é venuto in mente Orazio "... e terra neptunem procul spectare furentem...". Colazione buonissima. Complimenti. Poi, valore aggiunto, i gestori sono anche di origini pugliesi....
