This hotel is a converted convent that includes a Chapel with beautiful interiors. Our room on the 4th floor was accessible by elevator, a luxury in older properties. Our room overlooked the interior courtyard. The twin beds were very comfortable and the sheets and comforters were luxurious especially after a long day of touring. I also used the spa services...

Nicely located, right on the sea; though our room only overlooked the interior patio space. We had a (perhaps??) king bed w/an extra day bed type of furniture off to the side. Room was spacious. Our 1st room had no shower, so we asked to be moved which was done happily. The shower was great! Breakfast was good -- mostly...

Loved our stay here on the island Ortigia in Syracuse. Great charm and much small winding history on each route throughout the town. This was a great place to stay for the price and location. Parking can be a challenge on this small island but plenty was available off the street across from the hotel. Breakfast was a nice selection...

My husband wants a shower , and what we got was a non working jacuzzi tub with a hand wand . Instead of the double or queen bed- two twin beds. Haven't tried the breakfast yet but eggs are extra we have been told. Except for shower issue- the bathroom well appointed. Close to shopping and churches.

This is a very nice hotel on Ortigia a few minutes walk from the main tourist areas. We had a large spacious room with a balcony and sea view. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were excellent and friendly although it was a surprise to be greeted by a nun when we returned one afternoon! Yes,...

Comfy room, but didnt exactly have much of a view. One total peeve was they advertise as having WIFI but its sporadic and poor at the best of times. If you are someone who uses the net to organise your trips and plan your days, then prepare to be frustrated trying to log on to a shoddy network that comes...

I stayed at this hotel as part of a Rick Steves tour in October 2016. It was wonderful--spotless room with a comfortable bed and a great shower. The location is terrific and within walking distance of all the sights in Ortygia. There is a quick but pricey laundry service provided by the hotel so this is a good laundry stop...

We were welcomed by Cinzia who took very good care of us. Nothing too much trouble. The room overlooked the sea and with our windows open at night it felt like the sea was all around us. Very lucky the weather this October has been fabulous. I would lie to return as there are so many things yet to see...

My hubby and I stayed 3 night booking via booking.com. As arrived we found out we got a room with two single beds with no possibility to join the beds. In order to get a master bedroom we got trasferred to a room facing the sea for a surcharge. Overall, the staff was always very nice to us. To reach...
