We arrived in this hotel after having a bad experience with a B&B. It was very late in the night and the staff really helped us to find a solution so that we could take a rest in the night. The day after they transferred us in a more proper room that would fit me and my friends together. We...

The room was spacious with a very tiny balcony. The shower had mineral buildup on it so the water didn't flow properly. With the exception of the day the cleaning staff did not come, the room was very clean. There weren't many options at breakfast but they were always refilled quickly. Wifi was only available in the lobby.

My wife and I appreciated the small personal touches at the hotel-great restaurant and activity recommendations by the staff, and the fact that there is always someone at the desk-they wait until all guests are back for the evening before locking the front door. However, you can stay out late as the desk is staffed 24/7. At breakfast (included in...

The hotel is nicely located just one block away from the sea/harbor, although not easy to find. All staffs were very kind and worked promptly in responding to my requests. Buffet breakfast was very good in a cozy bright room. For money-saver, I recommend to go to a grocery store just across the street, one minute walk from the hotel....

My wife and I stayed in the Gran Bretagna for five nights in May. What marks this hotel out as very special is the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff from those at reception to the waiter who served us our (excellent) breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious and unusual, with ours having a wonderful fresco on the ceiling. The...

This hotel is situated on Ortigia; the very heart of Siracusa. It is very close to many restaurants and the hotel is really nice; clean, fresh and good service from the friendly personnel. In addition, the hotel had two private parking lots just outside the hotel. I can really recommend this hotel!
