    With a warm welcome from Danilo and previous excellent e-mail correspondence with manger Domenico our stay got off to a super start. The hotel is well positioned and very modern and clean. Our room ( apartment ) #3 was spacious and had a large terrace. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom although small was great for our stay. It's a short walk from here to all of the famous sites of Ortigia and Siracusa, the train station is convenient and takes you further afield - we chose Noto. Restaurants locally are superb and with the small well stocked (payable) mini-bar your stay is complete (Wine, water, soft drinks, tea, coffee, juice etc) We choose not to include breakfast as the Expedia website indicated with a picture a breakfast area, available at extra cost. We anticipated this being a buffet style at a time to suit. In fact breakfast is pre-ordered and delivered to your room. As we were do not like to be held to time, we cancelled this after day 1. (The cost for two was 30 Euros.) This was a minor concern and was easily rectified by the team at the hotel. This is jewel in Ortigia! We will use Allegroitalia again when we return - and we will! The best part of the experience at the hotel - Danilo and Domenico, so warm and friendly; nothing is too much trouble.

    This is a fairly new hotel in an old building. The decor is nice, with an impressive kitchen in this two-floor apartment-type room. It was clean, except for some grit on the floor, which was annoying because I t wear shoes inside. It was probably sand, because the hotel is very close to the water. It is within easy walking distance of the center of town and the Hop on Hop off bus stop, which is cheap, so getting around is easy from here. The staff recommended some very good restaurants nearby. Be sure to have the staff send you detailed instructions on where to park your car. There is a very inexpensive parking arcade a mile or so away. It was hard for me to find and it was raining when I got there, so our visit got off to a rocky start, but soon all was well and we had a lovely stay there.
