The situation . The roof terrace & the fabulous breakfast - probably one of the best we have had anywhere . The fact that we could make ourselves a hot drink & a snack . The helpfulness of the staff - garaging the car was not easy but someone came with us to park it & then to collect it & escorted us to the autopista . We can't wait to return .
Nothing - it was all great
The location, staff, breakfast served on the rooftop, comfort....actually...everything!!!
Nothing to dislike!!!
Everything was great- a great place to stay if you want B&B and good value for money.Would recommend strongly.Beds excellent!
Nothing really- wifi was a little variable but no real issues
Our holiday in Siracusa would not have been such a wonderfully Sicilian experience without Ettore and Maurizio, the brothers who run the place. And the breakfast? How much pride and enthusiasm! That is Sicily at its best. Nada & Robert
Amazing breakfasts and really friendly staff.great location.
Bed was comfortable Breakfast fresh cheeses and fresh fruit Very hospitable owners
Location was too far into the end of island Wifi was slow Lack of available sockets Shower pressure weak but workable
great helpful staff, superb breakfast (top self-made fresh juice and cake ...) on the top of the roof with splendid view, good location in the centre (duomo), we got a parking space for free very close, free wifi, kitchen in the room
(too) small single beds in the double room, wifi is very slow and not reliable, poor view from the room
Good location. Helpful staff. Thanks Antonio for finding parking place next corner.
This establishment was great. Friendly, quirky, fabulous location, super wonderful hosts and staff, a pretty terrace and abundant tasty breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. Highly recommend.
Our room was directly over a small alley that had a restaurant with outside tables and a bit of foot traffic, so it was noisy at night but that's a little inconvenience compared to the wonderful time.
I communicated with Antonio several times while we were planning our trip. He was extremely easy to work with. When our plan failed to land in Catania due to very bad weather, we wound up way south of our destination. We arrived in Ortygia very late, when old city is closed to all but pedestrian traffice. Hector (another staff) came to meet our cab and help get our luggage to the hotel. He then walked us to a nearby restaurant, spoke to the manager, and we were quickly seated an served. The rooftop breakfast with freshly squeezed juice each morning was a great place to meet and visit with other travelers from all over. The location of Aretusa Vacanza is wonderful for exploring, discovering shops and cafes. Very short walk to the seaside and to the Piazza Duomo. Very grateful to the staff for taking such good care of us.
Very spacious room with very comfortable beds. Nice, modern looking bathroom, all very clean. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was the best of our trip with nice fresh juice, home made cakes, pies and cheeses, original pastries and good coffee. A real treat!
Wifi was a bit unstable. Shower was as typical italian option - small shower head. Not a problem, just the only thing (with the wifi) that wasn't ideal.
Great host Antonio Lovely breakfast served on deck - fresh-squeezed oj and great coffee Centrally located near good restaurants
The friendliness and extreme helpfulness of the staff together with the superb location made our stay in Ortigia particularly memorable. The breakfasts on the roof top terrace were a real treat!
Lovely friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and very nice comfortable room. We had a quadruple room with interconnecting rooms that was perfect for two single ladies. The owners have a very positive attitude to customer service. Ortigia is beautiful and a great place to unwind , and this tucked away little hotel is the perfect place to do that.
Unhappy accident with double booking on first night which was resolved to the best of the hotel's ability with courtesy and consideration. We were sad only to miss one night in this lovely place.
The staff was great, helpful, warm and friendly. The location was spectacular. I could have stayed another month. The breakfast buffet spoiled me.
The only thing I didn't like is that it had to end.
The room and bath was a clean and comfortable place to call home for the duration of the stay. We have NEVER experienced such friendly, helpful staff during our travels - no matter how many stars the hotel might have had. Everyone, from Mauritsio, Flavia, and Ettore to Tony and Acela radiated positive warmth, energy and information. We enjoyed the common roof terrace at every time of day. The breakfasts were decadent.
Lovely, helpful friendly hosts and the BEST breakfast in all of Sicily!
We thought the staff was extremely helpful, addressing all our needs. They helped print out our boarding passes, arranged for a cab for a 6:00 AM pick-up and made reservations for a nice restaurant for dinner. The breakfast on the rooftop was excellent, also. This location is very convenient and the price is certainly good.
We struggled to get an internet connection the whole time, but this may have been a problem all over town. You have to appreciate narrow, steep stairs and an old facility, but that's what traveling in Sicily is all about. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom had been modernized, though.
Tugged in the maze of Ortigia. Great little terraces for breakfast. As everybody mentioned, the freshly squeeze juice.
Wifi didnt work for us in the first day. But staff help fix after.
- As soon as we arrived, we were given lots of information regarding Syracuse. What to see and where to eat. Staff is very friendly and always available to help. Breakfast is excellent with fresh orange juice. We even had a laptop in our room. Very good location and very close to small beach.
+ location! Right in the center of everything. + very clear instructions on how to get there + although the B&B is located in a pedestrian zone, the guests of Aretusa Vacanza can park their car in one of the sidestreets to the B&B or for only 5 euro extra in the parking garage. + close to the charming piazza's and cosy streets of Ortigia, with lots of nice restaurants and bars. + we had a nice dark and quiet room, which meant a very good night's rest. + all the rooms have a little kitchen island and a fridge. Very handy for travellers who are tired of eating out every night. + you get breakfast on the rooftop terrace with view on the bay, with fresh pressed OJ and local specialities. Heaven! + Very helpful and friendly staff. Antonio, who welcomed us, not only gave us lots of recommandations on where to eat and drink, he also let us in on the culture of Ortigia and pointed out what not to miss. This made our visit so much richer.
- Sometimes the WiFi would fail, but that is just a minor detail considering you are in such a very lovely place where you never fall out of things to see or do.
Antonio was fantastic, very helpful and very pleasant, breakfast was generally good. Car parking facility very good.
We felt we were hidden away in a back room with very little natural light. Room and bathroom were very tired looking. Bed was most uncomfortable bed we have slept, linen and pillows seemed very cheap. WiFi virtually non existent in our room.
Very obliging staff. Generous breakfast.
The location was excellent. The rooms very comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was very good and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I had a very enjoyable stay.
friendly staff, perfect breakfast, great location
