You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for. It’s cheap, so it won’t be a 5 star place. I had a room on the second/top floor. Bit old but clean, although non smoking you could smell that in the past it had been a smoking room. Annoyingly, qifi never worked in my room once when I was there. Breakfast is basic. I parked in front of the hotel, on the street without issue. Location is in walking distance of the old part of town, travelled as a woman alone and felt safe.

Great staff, so-so location.

Easy to find parking. Staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable. On foot, you are about 20 min from bars/restaurants in Ortigia and 10 min from ruins. But you're outside the main area and there's really nothing around. (The proof is in the pudding when you need to shell out 2E for a beer.) But again, the staff was terrific. Place was clean. Moderate shower.
