Quiet location 2 minutes walk to Ortigia

Posted May 9, 2017
A quiet hotel very close to Ortigia. Reasonably priced rooms for a great location. Lovely helpful staff and nice breakfast served in elegant dining room. Free Wifi with excellent signal. Rooms off courtyard are quiet with a seating area.

Lacking acoustic separation

Posted Sep 23, 2016
Siracusa is a very popular town for tourists so you're not going to get the same value for money here as elsewhere. The hotel is well located just 5 minutes outside the old island. Unfortunately, there's no acoustic separation between rooms beyond the plaster board. I could hear furniture moving, footsteps, toilets flushing, etc. The room was a little dated, especially the bathroom.

did the job

Posted Jun 30, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed in June 2016. Location is good near the centre, the look of the hotel is fine, it was clean and did the job for the night but nothing else: The plumbing in the toilet needs some work, the pipes rattled like an old truck exhaust pipe every time upon flushing, I bet the neighbours weren't amused either. Also, at the time of my stay there was some painting going on and the smell of paint and dissolvent in the corridor was heavy, almost inebriating in a hot summer day. Finally, the rooms could do with a simple mosquito net fitted on the windows.

Great location with everything in walking distance

Posted May 14, 2016
Pros: Great Sicilian breakfast. Quiet. Rooms clean and room service very good. Hotel staff friendly, polite and helpful. Great value.
Cons: There is no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, but there are cafés and bars a couple of minutes away.
Location: Perfect location. This is just a geat place to wander round.
Ortigia is lovely to walk, lots of twisting narrow streets with little Café bars and Trattatoria. The famous Puppet theatre is among the lanes and is great fun, book a show. Everyone seems friendly and lots of people have some English. There's a great food market and public transport is easy to use. Bus and Rail terminal is ten minutes walk from the hotel. A trip the the Catacomba di Santa Lucia was easy and interesting with a quided tour. The Parc Arciological was a waste of 10 euros (each) the Greek theatre being converted into a modern theatre with lighting banks, modern staging and the original seating covered with temporary wooden seats. The Tomb of Archimedes was inaccessible as was much of the site. You couldn't really wonder about. Great boat trip across the bay and round the caves.

Halfway House

Posted May 9, 2016 on Hotels
In one direction the archaeological park (magnificent), museum and Catacombe di San Giovanni (impressive in scale) are within walking distance (if fit) - just head for the wig-wam (the modern cathedral which is visible for at least 20 miles) whilst in the other direction and slightly closer is Ortegia, the historic centre of Siracusa. The local electric buses are an alternative transport bus No 2 for the archaeological park area and if in Ortegia bus no. 1 to return to the hotel Both routes are circular. The hotel is less than 500m from the Catania and Catania airport bus terminus and the train station is a similar distance away.
