Our stay in Siracusa was one of the highlights of our trip and staying at the Porta Marina made it even more wonderful. The hosts are true ambassadors to their very special corner of the world. Great recommendations to restaurants and the sights in the area. Even a friendly hello when seeing us at the market. The b & b...

Got an email the morning we were supposed to check in that their reservation system didn't retain our booking and they couldn't accommodate us. That was dec 30 - Syracuse was full! They arranged for a "modern good apartment", which turned out to be dirty, tiny, and outdated. No parking or breakfast. So, beware. You may be next.

Simona and Giuseppe are the owners of this charming well located B and B. We went between Christmas and New Year with our adult children and stayed 3 nights. Each room is individually decorated as though you were staying in a private house. Simona was extremely helpful in recommending and booking restaurants and explaining where all the city attractions were....

The Porta Marina B&B is located in Ortigia, which is the island next to Syracuse. It has lovely views across the water to Syracuse. While not as centrally located as some other places, nothing is far away in Ortigia so location is less important. The B&B has 3 levels, and no lift. Our family had rooms on all levels. The...

Simona and Giuseppe are a most delightful young couple who have created a lovely bed and breakfast where three large and comfortable bedrooms look out over the Porta Marina and yacht harbour while two more rooms share in the stylish "house style" of colourful and antique furnishings, and efficient and clean en suite bathrooms. Breakfasts are served on a shared...

We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed a room with a view of the marina. The building has been beautifully renovated and our room was most comfortable. Breakfast selection is excellent, the aircon is quiet and efficient, and the wi fi signal is strong. Full marks to Guiseppe and Simona!!

We stayed at the Porta Marina B&B for 3 days in october 2016 and had a wonderful stay. The B&B is quite perfect situated near the city centre, near the port and close tomthe mainland.

The place is run by a lovely couple who are most helpful and friendly. We arrived late but were met by Guiseppie who sympathised with our late arrival. Our room was at the top of the building and unfortunately had a strong smell of sewage. This was uncomfortable and was strong enough for us to think about moving hotels. We...

Simona (who speaks very good English) was extremely helpful with all aspects of our stay, & very pleasant (beginning with initial email contact before we left the U S)---she was invaluable for newcomers to the area. She made excellent referrals (for guide, restaurants). This B&B is in a great location by the harbor, & very well kept. Reserve the harbor...
