The room is clean and cosy. We stayed at this place for 3 nights, excellent hosts, throughout our stay they were very polite and friendly and made us feel welcome. Overall great experience: a very pleasant place to stay for visiting Sirscusa.

As we were backpacking around Sicily we were looking for affordable accommodation. This fitted the bill perfectly.

The location was excellent. It is just a few minutes walk from Ortygia (which is beautiful and peaceful) and about 15 minutes walk from the catacombs and Archaeological Zone.

The hotel is clean, the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast was the best we had in our two weeks in Sicily.

We had to leave early the last day to catch a bus and we received an email from the hotel to apologise that we didn't get breakfast. How nice is that?

This summer me and my girlfriend wanted to visit Sicily. We found the Populus Hotel through internet. We booked and we arrived. We do not speak Italian but fortunately the people in the reception they were speaking english fluently ! (This is rare in the south of Italy, and specially to Sicily!). The hotel is well situated, near the center of the town in a friendly neighbourhood.It is easy to access the local museums and also the very famous Greek amphitheater ! There is a bus station just by the road of the hotel. Near the hotel can be found small traditional Italian restaurants that their prices are very reasonable.Finally the breakfast was awesome, with plenty of food and of course the best Italian coffee ! They provide free internet access with good bandwidth. I will certainly visit again Sicily and i will stay in the same hotel for sure. I highly suggest this hotel for everyone that want to visit Sicily !

There was so much noise coming from across the street from an old lady that kept screaming all day long, from the traffic on the street below and from the AC unit that I hardly got any sleep... And this was a quiet room.

On the plus side - location is OK, staff is as friendly as they can be with little foreign language skills. That's it.
