This older hotel had very unique remodeled rooms. The rooms in the low 100 series of rooms (eg. 104), were situated on two levels. In our room, there was a large sitting room on the lower level. Stairs led up to the bedroom and bath on the upper level. Windows extend through both levels. I have never seen a similar layout. Rooms on the lobby level (two digit numbers) were standard hotel rooms. Our immediate neighbors had the bedroom and bath on the bottom level, with the sitting room above. I liked our layout best. The room was very clean and modern with a fast internet service. The bathroom was small with a tub. Breakfast was better than average. Quiet. Centrally located on the island of Ortigia. There is a small parking lot of the hotel opposite costing 15 euro per night. Friendly staff spoke excellent English. Overall a very pleasant experience. As it was part of a tour, I can not comment on the cost and value.

I searched and searched for a dlx hotel in Siracusa that hit all the notes...and I could not have hoped for better. The hotel was nearly full so we ended up in what I think was their premiere suite (Arethusa) which for its' cost, I thought very reasonable. It was wonderfully decorated - very fresh and colorful in shades of blue. All the renovations were done with quality materials - marble baths, etc. ITHe suite was bi-level as many are due to the high ceilings - not a problem for us - full baths on both levels. And the room and public areas were kept immaculately clean. There was always someone polishing or cleaning. The hotel is easily found by car after crossing the bridge to Ortigia and has parking (for a fee) across the street. Their breakfast is up on the roof with beautiful views. Staff very accommodating. I can't give one downside to our experience.

I love grand hotels, and this is one. I have to clarify that I stayed in room 303, with huge windows and a balcony and no stairs. Perfect. My room was beautifully decorated, giving the feeling of a "grand hotel". Breakfast was probably one of the best ever breakfasts I ever had in a hotel, regarding service (with a smile) and quality and variety of the food. I also used the hotel to secure transportation from and back to CTA, Catania airport. The price was fair and the quality of the service great.

We stayed for 10 days and everything was superb. Great location and an amazing staff. The restaurant on the terrace is stunning (try the pasta with clams and pistachio...). The beach is extremely nice as well. 10/10!!!
