We had a lovely 3 nights at Hotel Livingston.

The rooftop dining room is especially lovely and the buffet breakfast offers a delicious selection. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The front desk...

Agreed with another reviewer who said it is the best four star in Ortigia. It was difficult to choose because it was low season, and there were many availabilities. I was drawn to it by people who noted impeccable cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff, and ideal location - it exceeded my expectations in each one. As a tourist with a...

We booked only one night with the idea of moving on the next day but after the first night I hurried downstairs to ask for a second. Unfortunately the hotel was booked. The woman at the front desk went out of her way and called 7 hotels to eventually find a room across town. A number of points in making...

We started our 15 day trip to Sicily in Ortigia. The Livingston was ideal for us. The staff was extremely helpful in every instance. Emanuele in the breakfast room was great and informative. Paolo took care of our rental car, and the front desk was perfect. Ortigia is quite compact so our location was awesome. Highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night in August 2016. Great location as the main restaurants, shops and bars are within walking distance, yet the hotel is near the quieter side of the island so peaceful too. Finding the hotel is OK - use Google Maps and it will take you there. We just double parked the rented...

Found the hotel by chance, and very happy we did. Very clean, nice room (a little small) comfortable. Great location, parking and great restaurant on top floor. Stayed one night. Pleasent staff. Close to pedestrian streets and sea.

Booked this hotel on the blind without much research into where to go in Sicily. It was a very pleasant surprise. Excellent location, very clean, professional staff 10 outta 10. Breakfast served from 7-10am by the lovely Emelio. Great selection on the buffet table and service is excellent. Just dont forget to order the Cappuccino! Thank you.
