"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.
The Hotel in Ortigia was really good. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the food was of a high quality. The breakfast buffet particularly offered a large selection. The hotel was conveniently situated in Ortigia for easy access to the sights and restaurants.
"Very pleasant hotel overlooking the 'Porto Grande'"
We had a very nice suite (Alfeo) overlooking the harbour and would strongly recommend asking for a room on the front of the hotel. The hotel is in a quiet area and the staff were all very helpful. The old town can be explored easily on foot and there is a wide choice of restaurants on the island.
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.
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.
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 !!
