Old World feel and look for the hotel, but an excellent location. manned by a very welcoming and efficient team. Didn't use spa, but it looked good. Rooms large and clean, and an excellent buffet breakfast and waiter service. Well located also next to the main piazza and Valet Parking at €10 a day.

We had a short break here, 3 nights. What a great experience. Arrived hot and bothered, check in effortless, shown to a room with a lovely sea view, it did not disappoint. As it was after a longish journey we decided to eat in the hotel rooftop restaurant. Breath taking views from the terrace, asked for a table overlooking the...

We loved the location of this hotel. Even though it was over the bridge from the main part of Syracuse, we loved the area. Very quaint, walkable streets and nicer than the main part of the city I thought. And it was an easy walk over to the main area. The single rooms we had were small-ish but uniqely decorated...

Dear guest thank you for your review. Yes, we are in the historical centre of Syracuse: Ortigia Isle, so you thought right. Ortigia is the more suggestive and beautiful part of the city. And you can appreciate the view on the isle from our Roof top restaurant and from our room with the view on the sea. Happy you see...

A classic "palace" hotel overlooking the sea and in a basically pedestrian area. Spaces seemed well-maintained albeit a bit impersonal. A decent breakfast buffet in the white tablecloth ambiance of the rooftop restaurant.

The hotel and staff are very nice. The "free parking" however is not what we expected. We booked 5 nights but when checking in we were advised that parking was actually at a different location and we would have to give a 45 minute lead time when requesting our car be brought to the hotel. The earliest we could get...

We stayed in room #314, which has two balconies, the view from both is an amazing sea view, but unfortunately you can’t sit on either due to the size.
