  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel is nicely situated on the island of Ortigia, and is well located for exploring the sights of Siracusa. There is a luxurious quality to the service and some of the fittings in the hotel. The rooms was a good size and clean, and the bed was very comfortable with pillows of various firmness so there is a choice. The only thing I didn’t like about the room was the lighting in the bathroom. It was a bit too dim, a brighter more modern bathroom would be better. The hotel is facing the sea on the western side of the island, which makes for an ideal location for watching the sunset. The guests were given a voucher on arrival for a free glass of bubbly and some snacks on the rooftop bar in the evening, to take advantage of that. However, at the moment the view is pretty much blocked out by a large Norwegian cruise liner. So if you like looking at big cruise ships, great, otherwise, not so great. Most importantly the air-conditioning system in the room was great, and really helped me cope with the heat. Also very importantly, of the 3 hotels I stay in on this trip, the only one that had a kettle and tea/coffee. Breakfast is also on the rooftop bar. There is a good range of food, and to manage the buffet bar due to Covid restrictions, you stood behind a rope and pointed to what you wanted and a server gets the items for you. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely be happy to stay there again.

    Classic, friendly, wonderful place

    Great, classic place, very friendly staff, reasonably priced parking. Breakfast was wonderful and the view spectacular. It's classic, which means few outlets (it took me forever to find the off switch for the overhead lights... behind the pillows, in a logical place). Harder place to get any work done in the room. But that's a very minor gripe.

  • 6.0.Good

    Good waterfront location. At Euro 300 per night for a family room was told the single bottle of water would be free but any more would be charged. Drank the water on the first night and left out for replacement. It was not replaced. Same water available from supermarket at less than Euro1. Are they serious about customer service. While I booked the room over 6 months ago , the rate I paid was way above the rate on the day. I suggested an upgrade and was shown a room with a sea view, but told an extra Euro 40 per night even though this room was still available on line at less than I had paid.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This hotel is very well situated in Ortigia, the older historic part of Siracusa. The staff were very attentive and the property was very clean. The decor is a bit older and dated but oK. We stayed in a room that consisted of 2 levels which was inconvenient because of some steep stairs separating the bedroom from the washroom and sitting room. Risky walk down to the bathroom was sometimes trying. These rooms are not for those having trouble walking or navigating stairs. Otherwise the room was quiet. The breakfast was great and served on the roof terrace overlooking the harbor with a beautiful view.
