              Location.Free internet in the lobby.

              Staff is frendly and helpfull but a bit less proffesional.

            • Couple
              4.6

              The hotel is not a 5 star. I would bearly rate it as a 4 star. The rooms and the hotel in general were very old, it gave the impression that it has been a good hotel in the 50 but not anymore.They didnt have internet in the room. The stuff at the reception didnt speak english very well. The only good point of this hotel is the location and the spa.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was excellent.

              The room needs air conditioning and had a strange layout. In additon, the bathroom wasn't very well desgined. It was crowded and not very clean.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              Excellent location. Lovely rooms and facilities along with excellent breakfast choice.

              lovely amd very convenient location. excellent staff of their restaurant

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The location was excellent and the breakfast very good.

              I had a 2 story room and it was very inconvenient because since the closet was downstairs I constantly had to run up and down the stairs.

            • Group of friends
              7.0

              The hotel was lovely and the location great. The breakfast overlooking the sea was very special. The lobby was very nice.

              I think there was a great discrepancy between the attitude of the male and female receptionists. The female was on duty when we arrived. She showed us a duplex room which looked treacherous. We asked for and took a room on one floor. It was dark, small and near the service elevator. Perhaps, it was in response to two women travelling alone. The male receptionist was helpful and delightful. He made good suggestions for dinner and helped us with the internet. It was too late to change rooms because we were only there for 2 nights.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Excellent location and staff... very helpful and professional. Quality interiors and Junior suite was large and comfortable for the money.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              It's located in a quiet area and especially so at night! Free parking across street in lighted exclusive lot. Comfortable beds, firm foam. Top floor location for breakfast with nice view. When there was a toilet flush problem we were given another room without any hesitation.

              Wi-Fi only in downstairs lounge. Tall-sided bath tube instead of walk-in shower. Inexcusably bad coffee for breakfast (This is Italy!!) The toilet stopped flushing so we had to move rooms.

            • Single
              6.2

              convenient to the town and harbour. a very pleasant situation

              I was most disappointed that the terrace was closed "due to an infestation of animals" as one member of staff explained to me. The boat transfer to a beach (as decribed on the website) was also not available. Its cessation in mid September was not mentioned on the site.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Good location on water, walking distance to almost everything to see

            • Family with children
              6.2

              the view as i had a sea view. otherwise the hotel is a bad need of refurbishment. The rooms are on 2 floors sounds nice but the A/C only cools downs and not the bed area which can go up to 30C. the bath tub was all chipped, WC leaked so the flushing is filling every couple of minutes. etc

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Great Hotel ,with excellent location in Ortigia , breakfast was very good with a breathtaking view of the bay . Staff was very helpful .

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Good location and helpful staff with spacious rooms. Excellent views from restaurant.

              Lighting in the bedrooms was too low to be able to read. Pleasant groundfloor bar was not manned.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Lovely hotel and all round excellent. However, air conditioning not strong enough and unable to reduce temperature from room controls. Felt pricely, but that probably due to the weak Sterling rather than being a particularly expensive hotel!
