for the price we felt that the size and facilities in the room were poor. On the first night it appeared that the staff were overstretched by a wedding reception and the meal was disappointing.
the pool is lovely and the grounds stunning- lots of pretty shady corners to relax quietly, with flowers, trees and views of the gorge. A comfortable hotel with helpful staff. easy parking in hotles own car park. Quiet at night. Convenient for Archaeological park. It is quite a long walk to Ortigia, especiallly on the way home when you are tired from sightseeing, although we did do it- say 20 mins. Expensive bar.
Many previous reviews commented on the location of the hotel as being far from the town; this was not so. A cycle hire scheme (rather like that one newly installed in London) was close by and three buses were immediately available to take you to the station or the main town. The main museum was close at hand. No town based hotel could possibly have had such a wonderful location with a large well organised pool area which was never crowded. The rooms were cool and clean and the food was wonderful (and not overly expensive). The staff were friendly and attentive and this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in at a very reasonable price.
Proximity to town centre
Lovely room and pool We had trouble finding the hotel. They need a better map on their web site.
Attention to details like flowers in common areas Clashing styles of decor
Great Breakfast. Nice Pool. Seaview from our room. Internet didn't work, no wifi anyway. Breakfast service not very attentive. Our room was not very clean (especially in the corners or under the bed.) Some tasteless modern elements in the beautiful architecture. This is a middle-class hotel in the building of an old luxury hotel.
Convenient for touring the city, everything within walking distance
Very friendly and helpful staff. Good parking and close to sightseeing and the sea.
Location is excellent and the staff were very helpful.Comfortable attractive room and very good breakfast
Brand new so everything is still very clean and new. no
International feel, free parking, swimming pool, contemporary style, great for access to archaeological park Minor gripe- we had to phone down to reception each time we wanted the air conditioning in our room switched on. This request was never denied but it could haver been better explained at the start
Staff helpful and efficient. A hotel fully up to international standards for groups and individual travellers. Location is not ideal for 'seeing' Syracuse old town, and some distance from downtown restaurants unless visitor wants to rely on taxis. For that reason is better for mature travellers than families.
I liked the room. The stuffs were helpful. The dinner buffet was excellent.
Just few minutes from the city center. clean and comfort. feels like business hotel. hotel is new and modern. breakfast cost 10 euros for person.
Very good for business, not as a holiday hotel Too far from the old city centre
New hotel, close to some of main tourist attractions in Syracuse. Offers free parking and nice solarium / pool. Very nice staff with good breakfast. Room decoration and comfort excellent. Best hotel I’ve stayed in. none
Excellent facilities in this very comfortable hotel situated close to some of the historical sites in Siracusa. It is not conveniently located to explore Ortigia - 30 minute walk!
the modern look of the hotel
Conveniently situated not far from the old town and very close to archeological sites. You can park your car across the street for no charge. Free wireless internet in the rooms. International TV channels.
Staff and family ownership very nice and helpful. Confortable and very clean. Brand new. Excellent!
We were not enchanted by the area of the hotel and it's entrance from the street, but we changed our opinion very quickly after seeing the hotel from inside. The entire hotel area - reception, rooms, restaurant were vely clean and nicely furnished, with all facilities. The personel was very friendly and helpful and gave us good tips about the city. We also appreciated the location after visiting the city - it is very close to Ortigia and to the archaeological park and at the same time in a very calm area.
Clean rooms. Breakfast was OK. Free parking in the street next to the hotel. Only a short drive from the lovely old center of Siracusa where there is a big cheap parking garage. The hotel is located in one floor of a tall building. Not much atmosphere but professional. Ask for a room which is not next to the busy road, otherwise you hear the traffic.
The room was clean and functional. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is slightly away from the town centre.
The location was perfect. We parked the car when we arrived and walked everywhere. Hotel staff helped us get tickets to a performance at the Greek theater.
Very helpful staff at reception Breakfast could be a lot better. Hotel hard to find because no frontage on street.
Close to all the museums. Street parking available. Very nice rooms clean and quiet. Laura at the front desk put together a map of the sites including restaurants. A wonderful stay in the city.
It is located in central place, the service was excellent, it is a place that we always want to come again.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpfull, their was a nice laid back atmosphere.
Hotel is situated in a quite location but still fairly close to the centre. The breakfast was good but choice restricted. To make things worse the ham and cheese offered on other days was not available on the Sunday as the kitchen was closed!!
The Hotel is central and close to everywhere, the staff very helpfull and speaks english, and a secure good parking place since I was riding my motorbike. Excellent. The only thing which did not bother me a lot was that my double room was with two separate beds, instead of one double so me and my wife had to sleep apart for the night :) I am sure that if I complained they would have fixed something but did not even bother since I just stayed for one night.
Generally conmfortable despite the comments below, very helpful desk staff No proper internet service, overheated room, poor food, especially breakfast fruit juice, very poor waitress in the bar
What I needed No
The staff were very pleasant. The hotel needed a bit of make over which judging from the building works outside, it may be getting. Our room was rather small.
exploring Siracusa construction was going on
