"Lovely hotel a stone's throw from the centre of Or"
My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at the hotel. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the hotel is a short walk to the Piazza Duomo in the centre. We used the spa almost every day -it's small but perfectly formed, and lovely and quiet in the afternoons. The only downside was the noise from the rooftop bar on the Saturday evening, but it died down by about midnight. All in all we had a wonderful stay in Ortigia :)

Grand seafront hotel rising above an old harbour wall, less than 500 metres from the cathedral and historic Isle of Ortigia …More
Located on the quieter side of Ortigia within Syracuse, this is a gem of a hidden hotel. Great service, great rooms, and great interior. Some of the sea view rooms also look out over the sunrise on the sea in the middle of summer. Wonderful.
Great hotel and location in old part of town. Relatively easy to find and park the car. Room was comfortable. Excellent breakfast on rooftop terrace overlooking bay and port - serving staff were great. Private beach a short boat ride Only grumble was the wifi connection was really bad. Spent a very enjoyable four nights at the hotel.
We have stayed in 4 hotels during our trip to Sicily and this is by far the better one. Siracusa is not a big town and there is no big name hotels there. The hotel is a 15 minute walk to the main part of town. The INTERNET worked great; much better than the 5 Star hotel we stayed in Taomina. The hotel staff is just plain nice. The shower is the only thing that I don't like but I guess this is a problem all over Europe.
Would definitely recommend and will surely return. Service with a smile, english speaking and very helpful staff. They also remembered what i had for b fast the day before and asked if I would like the same. Excellent.
This hotel is situated in a former large villa which has been recently beautifully restored in the Italian style. It is set back from the road behind a large garden of mature trees. The hotel is family owned and a close eye is kept on the running of the establishment. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are of a good size and spotlessly clean, bedding is changed every two days. breakfasts are continental type with a wide choice, always including local delicacies. We consider that the price we paid for our stay was extremely reasonable for the standard and service which we received.
We booked this hotel last minute and was a beautiful surprise for many reasons. Beautifully renovated baroque building with modern elements. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food, and i do mean EXCELLENT. Even at 11pm I had the most delicious pasta and wine. The rooms are very spacious and spotless clean. I will definitely be returning to this hotel in the future. I recommend this hotel to anyone with exceptional taste. The beautiful modern bathrooms and rain shower facilities with proper water pressure was a real treat after a long day of sightseeing. Bathroom even had a jacuzzi in it. Beds are very comfortable with beautiful linens obviously carefully picked for quality sleeping. Thank you to the amazing staff from Antonio at the front desk and Mario our amazing waiter/server for making us feel welcome at all times. True warm Sicilian hospitality :-)
