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.
Malgré une météo capricieuse nous avons passé un excellent séjour et avons profité pleinement des services proposés par l'hotel. Nous étions un peu inquiet au vu des avis partagés sur cet hotel ! Si on s'affranchit du fait que les français sont râleurs et arrogants et croient souvent que tout leur est dû parcequ'ils payent, et bien nous avons eu une très bonne expérience avec cet hotel et son personnel sicilien ! La chambre était impeccable, il faut s'habituer à la chaleur locale et aux habitudes locales. Pour le bruit en effet si on cherche le grand calme alors il ne faut surement pas allé en centre ville à Ortigia, très animée et où tout se passe ! Il faut alors privilégier des lieux plus éloignés loin des festivités urbaines !
C'était parfait, à refaire sans hésiter !
Merci au personnel de l'hotel qui est très appréciable et parle en plus très bien français ou anglais.

"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).

Generally very good experience here. Rooms were clean and nice and staff helpful with everything. The hotel is centrally located. The breakfast, although not large, was quite good. The only difficulty was location if you are driving since it is in the center of the old city and no place to park there (so getting bags in and out of hotel was a little tricky -- and would have been really no fun if raining). Also, parking in general, even if you can find a space, is about 10 minutes walk.
