    Great staff, so-so location.

    Easy to find parking. Staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable. On foot, you are about 20 min from bars/restaurants in Ortigia and 10 min from ruins. But you're outside the main area and there's really nothing around. (The proof is in the pudding when you need to shell out 2E for a beer.) But again, the staff was terrific. Place was clean. Moderate shower.

    Not great

    Uncomfortable bed, very loud refrigerator in the room, annoying during night. We were told breakfast was from 7.30 to 10h. We came downstairs little after 7.30 (we were in a hurry to catch a flight), but there was nobody there and no breakfast set up. We left around 7.45 and the woman just started setting everything up... so we left without breakfast. Very unprofessional! Good location, not far from the old city center. Free parking in the street. Room was clean, but not big.

    Two steps away from Ortigia (8 minutes only)

    There was a light smell of smoke from previous guests probably. The hot water in the shower is reversed. A part from that, everything has been nice, the deal I got was cheap and the location was wonderful
