It was my first time in Sicily and was great to stay in this hotel in Syracuse. I had a wonderful night of sleep, the room had enough space, bed with the largest pillows I have ever seen. My rooom was not facing the sea and I think we had a lack of day light on it, but as i...

This hotel is right by the sea and its location isn't the best part. The rooms are clean and spacious and quiet, and the breakfast great. We found good places to eat nearby, and a laudromat only about 15 walk. We enjoyed Siracusa and this hotel was a good part of it.

Wished is known beforehand that this place was run by nuns. Single rooms equal single beds. Don't stay out late or you might be scolded by reception especially if u don't leave your key. Good showers and nice breakfast

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. It's not a secret that our hotel is managed by Ursuline Sisters of Holy Family. We're sorry if you felt scolded by our night shift: we ask to leave the key so that we are able to know who is in the room in case of emergency. We do not have a curfew,...

Although driving the streets of Ortigia to this hotel was an adventure, once we arrived this hotel was a quiet oasis. The staff were very helpful and actually came with me to my car to ensure I was legally parked. The room was simple but roomy and the beds were comfortable with oversize pillows. Our room had two twin beds...

Room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We had a fantastic sea view. It was close enough to the centre top be able to walk everywhere. We were able to park out front. Breakfast was ok, nice coffee and a selection of bread, cold meats, cheese, cereal, nice croissants and cake. We used the pool once and while it was nice...

Through the grapevine we heard about this place. When we arrived, we already knew that the location was brilliant. At the seafront and within 5 min. walking from the center of town. Just stunning, see the pictures. We stayed in February, and the rate was unbelievable. Anywhere else you would pay at least double. The hotel has been restored maybe...

This is a lovely small hotel in a perfect location right across the plaza from the sea. It also has a fully equipped spa. The breakfasts offer plenty of choices. The hotel was/is a convent that has undergone a complete tasteful, quality renovation. There is an area of the building that still is home to a small group of older...

This was once a convent and I believe an older sister or two is still living there. Beautiful setting and building, with some views on to the seafront. Good wi-fi, excellent breakfast buffet. An elevator from ground floor to upper areas. Extremely kind and helpful staff. Spa and massage facilities, too. One of the nicest places to stay in Sicily.
