how long does it take by train/bus to Siracusa from Palermo

We arrive in Palermo on 6/7/12, because we only have 6 days in Sicily we thought of going to Siracusa for 3 and then back to Palermo for 3 as we fly out of Palermo. Can we catch a train to Siracusa or do we need to catch a bus. I saw reviews on Hotel Gargallo would it be worth staying there.

3 hours and half by bus, more or less (direct bus)

Much more by train, with changes...truly substandard service, best avoided.

Absolutely avoid the train on this route and take the direct Interbus service between Palermo and Siracusa.

Hotel Gargallo would be a good option on Siracusa's ancient Ortigia island.
