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.
"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 :)

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.
The B&B is in a great location. We managed to park almost outside but be careful you only park in a white bay as the yellow ones are for residents and only the day before the police had fined 3 groups of guests who were not aware of this and parked in the yellow spaces.
The rooms are huge with probably the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. You have a safe and mini fridge. There is terrace on the top floor with swing seats and comfy sofas they could make more use of with say a small bar.
There are religious symbols and paintings around but none of this is oppressive. We had a nun show us where to have breakfast which was novel!

Looked at the outside and thought it would be bad but was pleasantly surprised when I got to my room. It's in an old building (that's what you want in Siracusa) but I felt comfortable and the price was right.

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.
The unique hospitality provided by the hotel staff with its free shuttle service to the beach and to Ortigia make your stay truly welcoming and relaxing. The pool temperature is delightful. Food varied and plentiful. A great place to stay!

This hotel is located in the Jewish quarters, a wonderful historic part of the Ortigia island. It is well connected to the main attractions (5/10 minute walk) and beautifully designed, after the hectic tourist places you can go back here to find relax and peace!
The staff are incredible and provided great recommendations for places to eat, go to the beach and enjoy our stay there I cannot thank them enough. The day starts with a breakfast service fit for a high end luxury hotel, very well executed.
All in all a perfect stay!
