I liked it. Staff was nice and helpful.. Breakfast was nice and simple. Don't go too late or you might have nothing left. Nice room with 2 bedrooms and a small lounge where we could have cooked. Not sure if all the room are like that but it will have been handy if we had stayed more than one night.
This charming hotel is in a great location overlooking the sea and within easy walking distance of everything in historic Ortygia. Our room was spotlessly clean and came with a small balcony that overlooked the street and ancient church below. There is an amazing rooftop terrace, open to guests, where one can sunbathe or eat a meal overlooking the absolutely beautiful blue Mediterranean. The helpful staff assisted us as we found a nearby parking spot for our car and gave us a paper to put on the dashboard so we wouldn't get a ticket. Breakfast was delicious and the server particularly nice and ready with a smile. The best, though, was Cinzia, the amazing front desk woman who was so interesting and funny and helpful. She was just great and made us want to come back to Siracusa and Domus Mariae for another visit very soon!
Wonderful B&B perfectly located on Ortygia (Siracusa). The B&B is in a beautiful old building right on the Piazza Archimedes, though our room was protected from any noise on the piazza by facing a quiet side street. The host was welcoming and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and itinerary. The room was well air-conditioned and comfortable. Breakfast was good and served in a cheerful, sunny room overlooking the Piazza.

This B & B is advertised as 'ensuite' but that's not the case. None of the rooms has an ensuite bathroom. We did have a private bathroom, but it was not connected to our room and we had to walk through the common area where the breakfast table was to get to it. The other rooms similarly had assigned bathrooms but none was contiguous to a bedroom.
Breakfast was another problem. Nothing was really prepared, including the coffee. It might better be described as a self-catering accommodation. No comparison to the other hotels and B & Bs we stayed at.
