This was the perfect place for us in Siracusa. While the guide books will tell you to stay in the old city (on the island of Ortigia), we were happy that we stayed just over the bridge on the mainland. In fact, we plan to let Rough Guides know that they need to revise their statement that there is only one good place to stay on the mainland in Siracusa.
Hotel dei Coloniali is a beautiful new hotel with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. It's a short walk (or a very short drive) to Ortigia. The rooms are elegant and modern, and the breakfast is nicely done. It's a 4-star hotel for a fraction of the price you would pay for one elswhere.
We had a car and were able to park right in front of the hotel (a treat anywhere in Sicily). Whereas Ortigia is not set up for driving and, in fact, drivers are actively encouraged to park in a massive lot near the entrance to the island and take a minibus or walk into the city.
