We had a short break here, 3 nights. What a great experience. Arrived hot and bothered, check in effortless, shown to a room with a lovely sea view, it did not disappoint. As it was after a longish journey we decided to eat in the hotel rooftop restaurant. Breath taking views from the terrace, asked for a table overlooking the...

We loved the location of this hotel. Even though it was over the bridge from the main part of Syracuse, we loved the area. Very quaint, walkable streets and nicer than the main part of the city I thought. And it was an easy walk over to the main area. The single rooms we had were small-ish but uniqely decorated...

A classic "palace" hotel overlooking the sea and in a basically pedestrian area. Spaces seemed well-maintained albeit a bit impersonal. A decent breakfast buffet in the white tablecloth ambiance of the rooftop restaurant.

The hotel and staff are very nice. The "free parking" however is not what we expected. We booked 5 nights but when checking in we were advised that parking was actually at a different location and we would have to give a 45 minute lead time when requesting our car be brought to the hotel. The earliest we could get...

We stayed in room #314, which has two balconies, the view from both is an amazing sea view, but unfortunately you can’t sit on either due to the size. This hotel is very quaint and has an old world charm with antique furniture, old-fashion bathroom fixtures (they work great and are probably new) and turn down service. We stayed two...

I must admit we chose to pay a bit more and have the "room with a view" - ah, what a great decision! This city is a real gem and in order to enjoy the whole "package" you must stay here. It is located behind the fountain of Arethusa (check your Ovid) and the view over the sea is wonderful!...

We made a non-refundable reservation at this hotel and immediately realized that we were not actually going to stay in Syracusa. We called immediately and asked to cancel; they said that they would not refund the money. We understood and asked if that money could be used for a stay in their hotel in Taormina (owned by the same group)....
