"Nice B&B in Ortigia, Siracusa's historical centre"
We spent one night in this B&B in Ortigia, Siracusa's historical centre. The B&B is in a historical building, but the rooms seem recently refurbished to a good standard. The staff was very helpful, and the location was convenient (walking distance to the main square of the old town, short driving distance to the archaeological sites and some nice beaches).

This is an excellent hotel for the price. On the island of Ortigia so it is walking distance to anything you want to do, and also close to the one big parking lot on the island. The manager Angela was very helpful and gave us some great suggestions. The breakfast had a great selection. We would stay here again.
What a lovely location! balcony overlooking the sea, lovely decor and clean room. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Oritigia is a lovely lovely place had we known we would have stayed there longer. Would definately stay here again.
Ordinarily I would have rated the hotel at about 4 because there was no minibar in the room. However, Giovanni, the proprietor, allows you to use the kitchen and the refrigerator. Thus, you have all of the comforts of being at your home. The hotel is located right in the center of Ortygia on an upscale shopping street. You are within easy walking distance of everything you will want to see on the island. If you are arriving at the train or bus station, there is a city bus that serves the island about every half hour. If you miss the bus or can't find the stop, it is only about a 15 minute walk to the hotel. What will make your stay here special is the fact that Giovanni is a most gracious host. He has a remarkable grasp of the history of Siracusa, and will basically serve as your personal tour advisor should you desire.

We arrived at the hotel in the evening and the gentleman working there was lovely and incredibly helpful. The location is very good - we could walk everywhere. We had two rooms for our family - one with a full on view of the ocean and it was bright and sunny. For an EU hotel, the rooms were a good size but our bathroom was quite small. The rooms and the hotel itself is very dated and pretty worn. No lift so had to carry bags 3 floors (thankfully the gentleman helped us). We crossed the street to their other building for breakfast which was fine but breakfast was pretty limited and the room small and cramped. We tried the massages because they were quite affordable and they were ok but nothing special. The price point is reasonable but my sense is there are now more options for a similar price. I might look around a bit or check to see if they have done any updating before reserving.

Super service from the friendly, helpful, staff throughout our 5 night stay . Clean modern facilities and excellent cold buffet breakfast included ( cold meats and cheeses , pastries and bread , cereal, fresh fruit , coffee, tea and juice ) .
Perfect central location on Ortigia island for all attractions in Syracuse . Walls between rooms quite thin and internal noise does travel - but not unduly disturbing ( we had a quiet back of hotel 1st floor room looking onto a courtyard ). All in all would recommend as good value for its 3 star rating.
