    Nothing really. It met our expectations. Not fancy, Not a lot of extras. Clean, friendly and helpful.

    Very nice breakfast on the out door patio. Close to Ortigia. Parking right outside the door. Concierge suggested some great places for dinner. Not touristy. We ended up staying an extra night.

    The hotel was fine but the location is a little bit run down. However, it is only a10 minute walk to Ortigia which more than compensates.

    Staff were friendly and the rooms comfortable and spacious. Breakfast on the terrace was a good way to start the day.

    Friendly Staff. Lovely breakfast all three mornings much of which were homemade pastries and cakes 🍰, which we ate on the rooftop terrace. Located near the train and bus station, Ortigia and the Archeological Park are nearby. Comfortable room - the shower could have been bigger. Wifi reception is very poor in Siracusa and much of south eastern Sicily.

    We had a room for four with a double bed and two singles. Plain and simple but not great value for money compared to other accommodation we had in Sicily. The pictures of the front of the hotel from the website make it look almost glamorous, which is not the case.

    Location close to station and a good secure storage for our bikes. Breakfast was reasonable for Sicily.

    Very well located for Syracuse - it's about a 15 min. level walk to the old town and there are bars ,restaurants and shops along the way. It's street parking but it's free and there is plenty of it. The railway station is only 5 minutes away and we took the train to the beautiful Baroque town of Noto. The rooms are very clean and spacious with comfy beds. The breakfast was typically Sicilian with lovely pastries and ham and cheese. The staff were very friendly. I would happily stay here again.

    For those with heavy luggage, there’s no lift up to rooms, however staircase is wide, carpeted and steps not steep (compared to some hotels we stayed in). Some of the Reception staff didn’t speak great English, though they were never not helpful.

    Great location, easy 10 min walk to shops/restaurants/bars and Ortica island. Breakfast bar was great, lovely coffee and fruit selections, even had proper (not pre-packaged) sliced bread for toasting! Lots of character generally, large rooms with gorgeous wooden shutters, floors & wardrobes, Roomy bathrooms.

    Sorella Luna is fairly basic, but has everything one needs for an overnight stay. WiFi works well and without problems, even thought bandwidth is fairly limited. A very good bed, slept well, and the helpful staff carried my (rather heavy) suitcase up to the floor with rooms (no elevator). I had to leave too early for breakfast, and have nothing to say about that.
