Comfy room, but didnt exactly have much of a view. One total peeve was they advertise as having WIFI but its sporadic and poor at the best of times. If you are someone who uses the net to organise your trips and plan your days, then prepare to be frustrated trying to log on to a shoddy network that comes...

I stayed at this hotel as part of a Rick Steves tour in October 2016. It was wonderful--spotless room with a comfortable bed and a great shower. The location is terrific and within walking distance of all the sights in Ortygia. There is a quick but pricey laundry service provided by the hotel so this is a good laundry stop...

We were welcomed by Cinzia who took very good care of us. Nothing too much trouble. The room overlooked the sea and with our windows open at night it felt like the sea was all around us. Very lucky the weather this October has been fabulous. I would lie to return as there are so many things yet to see...

My hubby and I stayed 3 night booking via booking.com. As arrived we found out we got a room with two single beds with no possibility to join the beds. In order to get a master bedroom we got trasferred to a room facing the sea for a surcharge. Overall, the staff was always very nice to us. To reach...

I had a great stay at the Domus Mariae. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is located a couple blocks removed from the streets with restaurants, bars, tourist sites which means it is quiet at night but still is a 2-10 minute walk from most of ortigia- a great location. I had a room with a small balcony...

Fantastic location, wonderful & super friendly staff. Rooms facing the sea has amazing views, the balconies hang over the sea. The breakfast was served at sister property across the street. Short walking distance from restaurants, main square etc Good wi-fi service No elevator, thus difficult if there is mobility restrictions but this is normal for that kind of building, it...

We stayed three nights. Room: although our room overlooked the street and rooftops (as opposed to a more expensive sea view) it was a good size, light and airy. Modern, light but very small bathroom. Great to have 2 windows that fully opened. Location. Perfect for walking to everywhere. Parking. This was important for us as we had a rental...

Having booked the Domus Mariae via booking.com which had the top rated mark within Syracuse we were confident before the arrival, we had booked a suite overlooking the ocean, we were not disappointed, opened the old style window shutters and WOW, this traditional style hotel/ b&b, was exactly what we wanted, sharing a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking...

We stayed 7 nights. Good large rooms, with wifi available. The service is great no matter who you talk to and the location is near to the sea and the downtown where all the restaurants etc are located. A funny thing about the hotel is that even though they say they have a bar. They even have signs for it,...

Domus Mariae used to be a convent which has been elegantly yet quaintly restored. The rooms are the smallest I have ever come across and some of them have no windows; a remainder of its Spartan past? Customer service is somewhat amusing at times by the modest knowledge of the English language. The views from the suits are sensational but...
