We loved it. We paid for one night, but we prolonged our stay here because it was perfect. 'Nuff said 😊 Comfy bed, big kitchen with moka. Suggestion in syracuse: avoid the street food, but spend and go for good restaurants, otherwise you will be really disappointed.

We rented the a room which turned out to be a first level with a king bed and a loft space with two single beds. It was by far one of the most comfortable places we stayed throughout our European adventure. The bathroom is quite large and includes a bathtub, a walk-in shower, a sink, a toilet and a bidet....

Ortigia Residence is not a hotel, it's more or less some rooms directly in the middle of Siracusa. Location wise it's perfect. It's really in the middle of everything, nothing is too far away from the place. Basically it's just an old house (with some shabby entrance and some nasty stairs to walk up), with 3 (?) rooms and a... More

Really huge room. Our room had 3 different parts to it and could have slept 10 people or something. Amazing. The bathroom was huge and had a bath and a shower. Also the sink was in a different room which was handy if you wanted to brush your teeth or use the mirror while someone was in the shower. Pretty... More

We rented the Archimedes room which had a fully equipped kitchen. Couldn't have asked for a better kitchen. The BnB has a fabulous location in the heart of Ortigia.

Hmmmmm. Have mixed feelings about this place. We stayed in the apartment which slept four people. Two single beds on the lower floor, and a double bed on the mezzanine level.

Stayed on Ortigia island in Syracuse at the beginning of October and was absolutely delighted with this beautiful bed and breakfast. The rooms were enormous - bedroom/living room, kitchen and bathroom. It was fully equiped for self-catering and spotlessly clean.
