Picked this for location and it really was perfect. Everywhere on the Island was walkable from here. We arrived with a car and it was about as easy to find as you can hope in ay city in Italy (noting the one way systems and small streets). The breakfast was fantastic and a perfect setting on the roof overlooking the Island.
It's difficult to fault this place. It's near impossible to drive there given the one way system, even with SatNav, but once you're there, it's perfectly placed next to the cathedral, has nice big rooms and a decent breakfast which we had outside on the terrace. Staff could not have done more on check in, although the service at breakfast was pretty miserable. That would be my only complaint.
My boyfriend and I read reviews for many hotels in the area, before picking this hotel, on the coast in Ortigia, the most beautiful part of Siracusa. It surpassed all our expectations! It's a beautiful, quiet hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a breathtaking view of the coast. Breakfast, served in a sunny room facing out to sea was delicious, with an array of foods to suit every palette. I would really recommend this hotel. I don't normally write reviews but was so impressed by this hotel I decided to write one.
Absolutely fantastic. The staff were all very friendly and eager to make my stay as perfect as possible. The hotel is clean and incredibly charming. Right on the water with great views both ocean-side and road-side. Sits right in the heart of Ortigia with easy walking access to all of the major landmarks. The restaurant upstairs is very nice and the breakfast buffet was delightful. The spa is a little pricey, but professionally done.

"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).
