"Lovely hotel a stone's throw from the centre of Or"
My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at the hotel. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the hotel is a short walk to the Piazza Duomo in the centre. We used the spa almost every day -it's small but perfectly formed, and lovely and quiet in the afternoons. The only downside was the noise from the rooftop bar on the Saturday evening, but it died down by about midnight. All in all we had a wonderful stay in Ortigia :)

Nous avons passé trois nuits dans cet hôtel très bien situé à pied du centre historique.
Nous avions une chambre vue sur mer, la voiture garée sur un petit parking juste devant
Nous recommandons cet hôtel qui vaut largement ses quatre Etoiles
Very smart, well maintained hotel in ideal location, next to the harbour and close to shops, restaurants, bars - and only a couple of minutes walk to the old market and the ruins of Apollo's Temple. The hotel staff could hardly have been more helpful and the breakfasts were superb - such variety and all high quality food stuffs. Would recommend this as a great hotel to stay on the lovely island of Ortigia/Syracuse
Friendly helpful reception staff. Location could not be better. Room comfortable and spacious. Only negative was poor service at breakfast - eg failure to clean tables or replenish buffet items (we were by no means late arrivals at breakfast). Well worth staying in Ortigia rather than new town despite difficulty we had in finding hotel by car. Cross bridge on to the island. Then bear right at junction near ruins of Apollo temple which you will see ahead slightly to your left. Follow road up to large piazza with Diana fountain in middle (Piazza Archimedes) exit diagonally opposite and then turn immediately right (ignore the restricted entry sign as you are allowed up this road to access the hotel). Hotel is on rhs. Two temporary spaces outside. Hotel will then take your car away and park for you.
"Excellent location near all Ortigia has to offer"
Superb location and v helpful and friendly staff. Our room overlooking the bay with nice balcony was worth the extra money. There is no bar and you have to use adjacent facilities. Good choice of mainly cold food buffet breakfast but omelettes and bacon also available. The staff were so helpful in sorting out parking near the hotel which can be difficult.
Beatiful area, very friendly and helpful staff close to the warfe and market area.
walk to everything. Excellent breakfast. room was small but very comfortable and memorable !! Parking is about 200m from the hotel. Can't wait to go back !!

The B&B is in a great location. We managed to park almost outside but be careful you only park in a white bay as the yellow ones are for residents and only the day before the police had fined 3 groups of guests who were not aware of this and parked in the yellow spaces.
The rooms are huge with probably the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. You have a safe and mini fridge. There is terrace on the top floor with swing seats and comfy sofas they could make more use of with say a small bar.
There are religious symbols and paintings around but none of this is oppressive. We had a nun show us where to have breakfast which was novel!
