As soon as you step inside the entrance lobby, it feels as if you are in a boutique hotel that blends perfectly with the streets of Ortigia. This is only enhanced by the exposed stone features and quality furnishings in the other public areas on the ground floor. The library/lounge is particularly delightful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, (room 9), with an airy lounge and shared patio balcony. Plenty of space if a little functional. The small kitchen area and fridge came in handy for the odd lunch or aperativo.
"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).

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.
