Very good 8,0
Lovely stay for 2 nights in a family room. Excellent location and incredibly friendly staff. Breakfast was wonderful with loads of local pastries, home made crostata and jams. Coffees were very good too and plentiful. I must stress again how lovely the staff was. Addressing all our needs and questions with a smile. I would definitely recommend it.
carmela, gb2 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
This is a fine bed and breakfast in a very nice location in Ortigia. One can not drive to the B&B. After we became completely confused, we called their office and a staff member graciously came and escorted us to the B&B. The room was very nice although our window was overlooking the scaffolding of the construction across the street (no fault of the B&B). The staff could not have been kinder. When we asked if we could extend our stay an additional night, he told us they were booked. But he located another nice B&B for us and made all the arrangements. The breakfast was amazing, the best I ever enjoyed in Italy. The only fault is, even though there is an elevator, the stairs could be dangerous for the elderly and young. The stairwell extended partially into our doorway. There is also a tricky spiral staircase leading to the breakfast terrace. My sister and I had no trouble with the stairs. We would gladly stay again on a future visit to Siracusa

Excellent place.
Family run business, excellent service, very good breakfast. It is a very old building - about 300 years old, so some steps maybe necessary depending on your apartment. Front desk is open until 11pm. Very very place. Would definitely stay again.
Michael, us6 night romance trip
Exceptional 10,0
Great location right in the centre of Ortigia. Restaurants in every direction and the Duomo Piazza only a few mins walk away. Room was spacious, clean and felt safe and secure. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast on the roof terrace was a great way to start the day! Parking is in a private garage situated about 5 mins walk away from the hotel, which you will be shown to upon arrival - you will need to leave the keys with the attendants with the car and pay them upon leaving. The garage opens from 7am, we had to leave earlier so the staff made arrangements for our car to be left outside the evening before. We would definitely stay here again if returning to Syracuse.

What a B&B should be
:Lovely place with superb hosts. Great room with little kitchen and loft with beds. Comfortable beds. Clean. Spacious. Only problem is that it is right on the passageway and people pass by all night. Take a blind fold and ear plugs and you will be fine. Nice breakfast on the room with cordial service
