This hotel was situated directly on seafront and our hotel room/small suite with terrace overlooked the sea. All the sites we wanted to visit were within walking distance and Piazza del Duomo, only minutes away, was the perfect setting for an evening meal. The hotel staff were professional, friendly and helpful, organising both our taxi transfers from Catania airport &... More

Hotel is in a stunning location, within very easy walking distance of the old historical city. Breakfast good and generally good service from the reception staff. Complementary Wifi which was great. We booked two rooms one had a spectacular sea view and the other looking out over the garden. My slight criticism of the accommodation would be that we had... More

We had a really enjoyable three nights stay. Parking was right outside the hotel. Breakfast was simply but adequate (excellent coffee). Bathroom was clean but the showerr could have done with a good clean at the bottom. Sky tv cost 12 euros per programme (if they actaully subscribe to that particular channel)

Really enjoyed 2 nights stay here in a sea view room - and what a view! Good breakfast, good service from reception staff. Overall location is excellent - short walk to shopping, sights etc. My only negative point was the parking - there are a few spaces outside the hotel for parking, and it's a one way system. The first... More

This is a wonderfully situated hotel, right on the sea front in Ortigia, the old part of Siracusa (Syracuse). We paid a little extra for a sea view room, (room 124). It was a large room, with a very large bed, well furnished and with a smart, clean bathroom. There were two French windows, each leading onto a balcony, one... More

Such a romantic location! A beautiful island of narrow streets filled with flowers and balconies and interesting shops and restaurants, that is so small that the sea is never far away. We had a suite with a roof terrace overlooking the sea and the sunrise. All you can hear at night is the crashing waves. Staff were charming and helpful.... More

We know Ortigia well. This was our first stay in the Maniace. Staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a disabled friendly room which was lovely and had a sea view. Breakfast was excellent and the staff attentive. Well situated in the old town at the foot of the Via Roma and near a good choice of restaurants.Mr. Mrs... More

We were two sisters traveling on our own. We drove around Ortigia 2 times before we could find the Hotel. It is not easy to find and all the streets are one way. That makes this even more difficult. The good thing is it was well worth. The Hotel is well located in the old part of the Island. The... More
