We booked online just a day before visiting Ortigia from our rented vacation apartment in Catania. We were delighted to get a sea view room, though smaller than the non-view one originally arranged. The hotel is charming, friendly, and decorated in a kind of hipster style with some industrial touches, some country pieces, and some modern furniture, all of which works very well and comfortably. Great bed. Lovely linens. Reading lights on BOTH sides of bed. Clean white bathroom with sea view, large tiled shower, and heated towel rack. Heard no noise from neighboring rooms once we closed our door. Breakfast was excellent, local cheeses, pastries, fruits, cereals, everything one could wish for (including hot milk for the coffee.) we sat on the second floor terrace in the late afternoon, had it to ourselves, cannot imagine a nicer spot for winding down. We would absolutely book here again.

Not the Ritz, but <90 Euro for a nice room directly overlooking the port and Ionian Sea beyond and close to everything in the ancient city center, Ortegia Island. Staff are congenial and in all a fine value at a memorable spot.

While the rooms are quite spartan, the seaside view was opulent! The breakfast is very good, the staff extremely helpful, parking is pretty easy, and the location is top shelf. My only complaint is the AC is on a timer which shuts down at night, first night around 1 a.m., second night around 12, and snaps back at 7 a.m. so, with the windows open, the road noise was loud. I was given a fan which helped drown out the noise a bit. But the price and location are great!

Dear Carole,
Thank you for your comment. Yes we do turn off the A/C when the temperature is not too hot (although during the hot summer we do let it all night! long) We are sorry that it bothered you... Kindest regards

Simple but charming hotel. Central location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Airconditioning worked like a charm. Fast and reliable WiFi. Our room overlooked a courtyard, so we slept like babies. As the traffic in Syracuse is completely insane, the rooms on the street side are likely to be less quiet. The hotel has a modest rooftop terrace and a small but cozy terrace on the street side. Abundant breakfast. We did not have dinner there, but the hotel restaurant seems very popular and that's probably not without reason. Excellent price / quality ratio.

Room 9 overlooks the sea. Calm for our first couple of nights, and a roiling surf for the next few. Some traffic noise until about 10pm, but the double-glazed French doors are well designed for quiet. We kept them open at night, because the sea air is so peaceful. The hotel has tasteful design elements, not fancy, simple, and very comfortable. Perfect location, walking distance to everything. Knowledgeable hosts and staff, whose recommendations were very helpful. Bellissimo

Room tip: Room 9 has wonderful sea view
