Comfortable room but tiny shower. Average breakfast with luke warm coffee.Difficult to reach despite our GPS (note: part of Via Roma is a pedestrian only zone!)
Lovely hotel. After a confusing journey through town we were happy that their staff we able to park the car in their garage for us. Lovely view of the main square, watched the evening passeggiata from our balcony. Friendly and helpful staff, great restaurant recommendations. Would return.

Driving to the hotel is possible, but you may have to do as we did: park somewhere first, make your way there on foot and then receive explicit instructions (and map) from the helpful staff. Book parking and you needn't see your car again until you're ready to leave.
The staff were terrific: there when you wanted them and out of the way when you didn't. The location is perfect for the old town of Syracuse on the island of Otigia, and that's the place to be if you are visiting Syracuse. Restaurant indoors and extending onto the street. Perfect. Good for watching the world go by.

Room was a bit rundown especially bathroom. Aircon was noisy and when we opened windows we faced on to a courtyard with two big industrial Airconditioner units which were noisy. Breakfast didn't look all that appetizing and after requesting 2 fried eggs I was eventually told that they would cost an extra 8€. The restaurant then lectured me on why this was reasonable.
The staff were great

Everything is wonderful about this hotel. Our room was exquisite. The location could not be better - close to the piazza, great restaurants and bars. The staff are an absolute standout. We had a medical emergency & the way they helped us during this time was so comforting to us and most appreciated. They went way beyond what you would expect. Lovely caring group of people. The restaurant attached to the hotel is wonderful. We had afternoon drinks here everyday. The meals are delicious too.

The bathroom was a bit outdated and a bit of a smell to it. But it was clean. And we got incorrect information from the front desk staff on several occasions when we asked if places would be open (we stayed over Easter weekend) and about restaurants. But we figured this could be a language issue, we don't speak Italian, not the hotel's fault.
The hotel was in a great location, just behind the Duomo. It was clean and while the bedrooms were a bit small, there was plenty of space for our family of four. Luckily for us most of the staff spoke English and all were attentive and helpful though they did not always have the correct information on when sites were open and directions. Thia could have been due to the language barrier though. The breakfast was great, many choices of delicious food and good coffee. It was beautifully presented too.

Breakfast was little uninspiring
Excellent location just off main square. Spacious bedroom with windows on 2 sides overlooking both square and via Roma

The front desk helped us book a few day trips with Mario, a great driver, the breakfast was delicious, and the morning waitress was very helpful in packing us a snack when we had to leave early!

The staff made us feel welcome and there were no unpleasant surprises. Very central location.

the restaurant was only open one day for dinner when we were there because it was off-season. A couple of the staff didn't care or seemed unhappy to be there working.
Great location Great breakfast comfortable room & bathroom most of the staff were great

Somewhat difficult to drive to. Try to get a room away from the front of the hotel; rather noisy at night
This hotel was in a wonderful location for exploring Syracuse. In Ortigya, the sights were within walking distance. The staff was helpful in taking care of our car, luggage, and restaurant recommendations. The room was large; breakfast outside when the weather was temperate.

a few members of the staff were not helpful, the bed is even harder than the other hard beds in Sicily..restaurant was unfortunately closed during our stay.
Most of the staff was super helpful, great breakfast, the best location next to the largest square and convenient to all restaurants and shopping, and the waterfront; very clean & pleasant - we stayed 9 days. Grateful to have the car taken care of for us. Very quiet when we closed the window, and when we opened the windows in the bedroom and bathroom we got good cross breeze. Nice view from our room over the rooftops to the water.

The location right in the best part of town. Very comfy nice bed great bathroom. Incredible breakfast with more choices than you can deal with. Staff were first rate.

There wasn't much not to like, but breakfast supervision could improve. Things would run out.
It was quiet, comfortable and in a central location. Free afternoon soft drinks was a nice touch.

There was nothing I did not like about this hotel.
The location was superb. The hotel staff was professional, and could not do enough for their guests.

Great location in the center near the cathedral. Good breakfast, particularly eating it outside looking out over the piazza duomo. Very comfortable beds. Clean with simple furnishings.

Our room was noisy. Too close to the main air condition unit.

The hotel is very difficult to find if arriving by car.
Excellent location and very, very attentive and helpful staff. Perfect breakfast outside on the square.

Certainly not a 4 star hotel. The place is run down, the rooms have old decor and half the lights did not work. The breakfast was awful, particularly for Italy where the food is so good. A clerk suggested a restaurant and offered to de the reservation and then forgot to tell us that the restaurant was closed once we went looking for it unsuccessfully.
location, location. The staff did their best to be helpful and they were nice.
