Impractical and not a welcoming room. Completely OTT praise for bunging a "stylish" statement piece of furniture here and there. Room size is reasonable and fairly quiet in acomfortable bed. But plenty of niggling faults: no drawers, no working safe, no tissues, no glasses, A/C not working. Basic shower with a poor finish. Breakfast was not bad, certainly not lavish,... More

We stayed here for three nights. I have wanted to visit since I read Thucydides histories. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast was excellent, and the room was of decent size with a large window both there and in the bathroom. There was also a place to sit out and enjoy the sunset and to eat take out if... More

This is a very good middle range boutique hotel facing the water in Ortigia. I have been here several times and it continues to be a great place to stay. It is located on two ex fisherman houses facing the water. The place has its charm: it has been rebuilt simply but with excellent taste with some industrial fixtures and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was very simple and clean and we had our own private rooftop balcony with a sea view. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Staying in ortigia was great as we were right by the sea and close to all the beautiful old buildings and quaint alleyways and streets. We had... More

Great location, great value, very friendly staff. The rooms are on the small size but definitely I got a feeling of being in an authentic Sicilian hotel. The staff are very friendly and speak good English. The area is a beautiful old town with lots of restaurants and things to see and do. Be careful if using a hire car... More

We stayed at Hotel Gutkowski for 2 nights during out honeymoon. It was recommended by Red magazine and the website looked great. The hotel is lovely and has a modern feel compared to other hotels in Ortigia. The downside for us was the room we were staying in. We did not have a sea view and it was on the... More

The hotel is very charming, the furniture is minimal but with very typical colours and traits. The position is very good being in the centre of Ortygia. Staff is very welcoming. Breakfast is pretty good. Would recommend and would come back.

We found our stay at Hotel Gutkowski pleasant enough, from check-in to check-out, but nothing particularly spectacular or outstanding to rant and rave about. After coming from Taormina (where an arm and a leg is the expected currency), the price point was great (especially with the inclusion of the Buffet Breakfast in the mornings). Aesthetically, I felt the room to... More
