Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.

November 13, 2016
눇This B&B is really nice located: We've had easy access to everything + warm welcome from owners + a quiet restful night (which in big cities can be difficult) + comfortable clean room + delicious breakfast + pet friendly + parking! We would surely return!
November 4, 2016
눇A beautiful property that is perfectly maintained. Wonderful hosts who were very helpful with maps and suggestions. Quiet and an easy drive to the sites.
October 30, 2016
눉If you don´t have a car it´s a bit of a walk from the city center. Public transport only works until 8:30 pm. However, the B&B is closely located archeological park.
눇The B&B is new and tastefully designed. All areas are kept very clean. The terrace and the garden are perfect for relaxing after a long day. The owners were always helpfull and could answer all my questions.
October 28, 2016
눇Warm service, lovely breakfast and gorgeous room with terrace overlooking the sea. Good location for siteseeing, but nice and quiet! Great value as well.
October 25, 2016
눉It is a bit of a trip to eat out at night, if you don't want to take the car.
눇Such a friendly welcome from the family owners. Pepe and Marina really make you feel at home. They are born hosts. Any problem ,they deal with. Breakfast is divine. very comfortable room. We had a view down to the sea, with a spacious outdoor patio. There is nothing wrong with this as a B&B. If you want to go out in the evening, Pepe will order a cab no problem, and the restaurants in Ortigia are numerous and, in our experience, very good. Highly recommended.
October 25, 2016
눇the place, the garden, the room and most of all the couple Peppe and his wife are so gentle and helpful. If I visit Siracusa again definite go again. B,fast well done. I definite give 10 stars
October 12, 2016
눇The staffs are very helpful. They gave us many useful informations and room is clean and quiet. If I have chance to travel to Syracuse again, I will definitely choose it again.
September 24, 2016
눇Location in a quiet residential area. Very helpful young owners. Comfortable Bedroom but rather lacking in soul. Excellent bathroom. Lovely patio area and garden. Very nice breakfast with home made pastries etc.
September 21, 2016
눉We are quite critical people but it would be impossible to find fault here. Thank you Pepe and Martins!
눇Our hosts were a lovely family who set extremely high standards. They could not have done more to make us more welcome or comfortable. Our only regret was that we had booked for only one night!
September 20, 2016
눉Everything was brilliant.
눇Exceptional friendly service from owners. Nothing too much trouble. Brilliant location - peaceful but not too far from main attractions.
September 18, 2016
눉Only that we had to leave to fly home!!
눇Pepe & Martina have a beautiful home and they welcome you as friends; the room was immaculately clean, spacious and tastefully decorated; the genuine interest they take in their guests was a real pleasure to behold. Breakfast was the best in Sicily and I hope when they read this that they might share the recipe for Pepe's mothers lemon cake :)
September 15, 2016
눇Nice and quiet location , modern and very clean home with a beautiful garden , delicious breakfast . Very nice and friendly hosts . It was a pleasure .
August 29, 2016
눉The walls/doors are not quite sound proof, but maybe we are too sensitive there. The rest war perfect.
눇Very nice people, located very close to the archeological park. Beautiful setting, good breakfast. Thank you!
August 28, 2016
눇The location is new and overlooking the archaeological site. Parking space and quiet during the night A super friendly couple is running the B&B. They were providing great hints for our visit including a lovely place for dinner One of the best places we were staying in Sicily 10 out of 10
August 20, 2016
눇Great place. Pepe was a great host and told us were to eat dinner in town. The location was amazing, my favorite of all the cities I visited on Sicily.
August 2, 2016
눇Very nice and extremely friendly B&B run by a charming couple. Very clean, everything is new, comfortable beds and pillows. Owners are very helpful and caring.
July 31, 2016
눉Location is slightly out of town, so getting to old-town on foot requires quite a bit of walking. But it is just behind archeological sites and in very peaceful area.
눇The landlord is fantastic guy, who told the whole story of the house and made it feel like you're staying at your friends place. It is also freshly restructured so rooms are perfectly clean and brand new, and there's very cosy garden to spend an evening with a glass of wine.
July 29, 2016
눇Everything is perfect and worthy for the price. nothing can complain. The breakfast is excellent. The location is easy to find and really close to the park. The host is nice and easy to communicate. If next time when I come here, i will choose here again definitely!
July 20, 2016
눇A lovely couple runs this family-owned guest house in Syracuse. All rooms have patios that look out onto the most amazing garden of flowers, palms, and gigantic cactus. It is incredibly restful to sit outside and watch the wind rustle through the garden, the only one I have ever seen in Italy that look lush.
July 12, 2016
눉Lighting in room very dim.
눇Parking on site. Rooms opened onto tranquil , tropical garden. Pepe and his wife were always available and helpful. Other B&B 's asked us to choose a specific time for breakfast . Here there was a 2 hour window for a very nice buffet. Excellent , modern shower. Within walking distance of the Greek Theater.
July 11, 2016
눉Rooms are anything but sound-proof.
눇Private parking behind gate. Quiet location and very close to ancient theatre. Good breakfast, good price / quality ratio. Clean and modern.
July 3, 2016
눇Favourite parts were sitting out in the garden and the breakfast! Location was great for us, we enjoyed walking into the city (easy to bus/taxi/drive if needed though). Brilliant hosts, really welcoming with great advice. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you!
June 24, 2016
눇Loved the location away from crowds but accessible by bus. Lovely garden and bay outlook. Felt very welcome and cared for. Easy to get to and to park the car. Highly recommend .
June 8, 2016
눉If you don't have a car then it may be distant to the city centre (on the positive side it is near the archaeological site). The sound isolation between rooms could be better but was not an issue as other guests were not noisy.
눇Great B&B with nice view over the city. Clean and comfortable rooms. Good Wi-Fi. Wonderful breakfast. Friendly hospitable couple running the B&B. Parking was literally 5 meters from the room. Good value for money.
June 5, 2016
눉It was wonderful. I admit I like screens to keep out mosquitoes but one seldom finds these anywhere in Italy. (And when we were there there were no mosquitos yet.) Also, as in all of Sicily, sidewalks are absent close to the home, so walking into the town or to Ortigia is somewhat challenging even though close by. Not a factor for most people as, unlike my husband, they do not mind driving.
눇Unusually nice, luxurious and sophisticated but warm and personal. For instance, the outdoor sitting area is surrounded by plants which produce white flowers, fragrant in the evening. His mother designed the garden, and she is the one who bakes the Sicilian cakes for breakfast. (And breakfast is fabulous, with cheese, croissants, yogurts, ham, breads, fruit. Orange juice is squeezed for each guest individually just as coffee is made to order.) During our stay another (also foreign) guest developed a medical problem, and our hostess made an appointment for the same morning with their own doctor. Our host left work to take him to the appointment to make sure there was no language problem. Things like this one cannot buy.
May 28, 2016
눇Beautiful quiet setting run by a lovely couple who make you feel at home, immediately. Walking distance to main sites and only a short drive or taxi to old town. Do yourself a favor and stay here.
May 28, 2016
눇This modern, very clean home with lovely gardens and ample parking is conveniently located in a quiet residential area near the archeological park. The friendly young couple who own the B&B can't do enough for you. The breakfast was excellent with freshly squeezed orange juice and mamma's home-made marmalade.
May 12, 2016
눇The location was very good and the hosts were extremely friendly and helpful! The bed was very comfortable and the garden lovely with lots of palmtrees and cactusses.
May 11, 2016
눇Everything is great for me. It is a beautiful and comfortable property just located besides the Greek Archaeology Park. Martina and Peppe are very nice and helpful host.
May 10, 2016
눉I believe nothing could have been better. Seriously, congratulations.
눇Both owners are really nice people, they received us with a smile in their face and gave us tips on what to do/visit in the area. The place is lovely and so are the rooms, which are perfectly clean and tidy. Besides, the breakfast was amazing, specially the home made cakes. I would definitely come back.
May 9, 2016
눉Could do with a bit more lighting in the rooms - near the bed for reading and over the desk
눇A beautiful peaceful haven of tranquillity in a residential area at the back of the town. There is a long hedge of jasmine which was in flower during our stay which had the most wonderful scent. The young couple who run the B&B are extremely welcoming and friendly making sure you get the best our of your stay with plenty of information about what and when to visit nearby.
April 28, 2016
눇Beautiful residential home recently converted into high-end, comfortable B&B. Spacious room with lovely bathroom. Hosts Martina and Pepe could not have been more gracious and accommodating. Because the B&B is a few minutes outside of Ortygia, where most of the attractions are, it is most convenient for those with a car, as well as those who prefer quiet at night and crisp ocean breezes in the morning. Breakfast was delicious.
April 27, 2016
눇I really loved everything about this B&B. The location is great, it's just on the top of/outside of the Greek Archaeology Park. Ortigia is also a couple of kilometers away. I went to all the sightseeing sites by feet, very convenient. The B&B is modernly decorated located in a beautiful garden, where one could take a good rest to have a bird view of the sea and the Park. The breakfast was also great to start a good day. Last but not least, Martina and Peppe are very nice host (thank you). Martina knows a lot about the historical sites, and it was enjoyable talking with her. Peppe kindly picked me up at the train station. It was a great stay in Siracusa. Hope to come back again.
April 21, 2016
눉No real complaints. Would have liked a brighter light in the room to read - but most modern designed buildings seem to have low lighting.
눇Well located, just above the archeological park, in a beautifully designed modern villa type building, lovely garden and distant sea view over the bay. Well equipped and designed bedrooms, excellent breakfast, parking on site, a quiet area of the city and the young couple who own/manage the place are delightful.
April 21, 2016
눉The property is very close to the archeological site, not many restaurants around. However, this is not a big problem if you have a car because downtown Syracusa is just a five minutes drive
눇The structure has been recently renovated and it is very comfortable. There is a small garden and our young son enjoyed to stay outside. The view on Syracusa is spectacular and the breakfast is delicious (homemade jam and cakes).
April 9, 2016
눉Could hear the people in the room next to ours through the communicating door.
눇Warm and genuine welcome. Martina's expert knowledge of archeology and the local sites. Quiet neighbourhood but close to the centre and sights. The home made citrus cakes and jams - delicious !
April 2, 2016
눇We have traveled a lot throughout Italy and this B&B ranks in the top 5%. The owners really understand "hospitality." The little extras like fresh orange juice, home made cakes, the cactus garden and especially the conversation with Martina and Pepe make Temenos stand out from the rest. Stay an extra night. You won't regret it.
November 24, 2015
눇Everything. Beautiful owners. Welcoming& so helpful. Location fabulous directly behing the Greek theater. Bus available from there to Ortigia.
November 14, 2015
눇Giuseppe and Martina are excellent hosts, they made us feel welcome and provided us many tips in to discover the surroundings. The B&B has the best view in town, itàs very quite and relaxing, BTW we have evaluated a bit less the position because it is 3km away for Ortigia ( we like walking os it's not a big challenge), however it was really close to the archaeological center and as we had the car it was really close easy to get away without driving through the city center, therefore for us it was excellent. Have a great holiday Giuseppe and Martina!! You deserve it! :-)
November 11, 2015
눇Superb setting, hospitable hosts, free parking on site, excellent directions given, very quiet location away from town centre (five minutes drive away),
November 1, 2015
눇Quiet and beautiful location overlooking the Greek archeological park, Ortygia and the Mediterranean. Immaculate and well equipped room. Super breakfast. Very helpful and friendly hosts. Free secure onsite parking. Close to a bus that takes you quickly and for very little money to Ortygia.
October 23, 2015
눇Fantastic in all the ways! We really enjoyed our stay there.... Very clean and relaxing place with beautiful garden and easy parking and the Greek theatre just at your feet :). Martina and Beppe couldn't be more welcoming and helpful! We want to go back ...now ! :)
October 21, 2015
눇The hotel was on a beautiful property about 2 miles from the center of town. This allowed for a peaceful pleasant atmosphere, but an easy trip in for shopping, sights, food,etc. The owners were friendly and made every effort to make your stay enjoyable.
October 6, 2015
눇Modern purpose built facility in an old garden in delightful area. Each room with own access from a verandah. Good breakfast in dedicated space. Stay here outside the city for easy parking.
September 22, 2015
눇The Temenos is very well situated in a quiet area yet close enough to the sites but far from Ortygia. But the atmosphere and the added bonus of Martina's knowledge of Greek and Roman history was really unique service.
September 22, 2015
눉Breakfast could be more varied and include not only sweet things. For instance cheese,ham,eggs. Coffee could also be stronger.
눇Beautiful house. Kindness of hosts. Great cakes.
September 17, 2015
눇Hosts are really nice! They recommended us the best restaurant we had in Sicily. It`s place for locals mainly (in Ortigia). Hosts very friendly and nice! Definately would recommend Temenos to everybody visiting Syracusa.
September 15, 2015
눇Very clean, very nice staff Martina and Pepe were very helpful, excellent standard of cleanliness and in a fantastic location near Teatro Greco. Some home made food for breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.
September 10, 2015
눉Leaving Temenos !
눇Excellent, everything - Martina and Beppe could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The B&B is brand new, clean and tastefully decorated. The garden area is very pleasant. Quiet and peaceful location but near to the centre. Breakfast - very good, particularly if you have sweet tooth!
September 6, 2015
눉I missed salty food, like salami, oliva oil or cheese. Sweets were very good.
눇Very clean, nice and new house, wide room and quiet place close to the theatre and 5 min driving to ortigia. The hosts were a very kind couple and helpful with the advise.
October 24, 2016
눉Thin walls & noisy guests. 25 minute walk to nearest decent restaurant.
October 20, 2016
눇Great location. Helpfull staff. Private parking.
October 18, 2016
눉Had to keep the mosquitos at bay when sitting outside. Hazard with the Island I'm afraid
눇High quality stay
October 4, 2016
눉Driveway a little difficult for a larger car.
눇Very welcoming and helpful hosts providing a comfortable place to stay whilst exploring the area.
September 27, 2016
