Reviewed 21 September 2013

The best breakfast of our Italian trip with lots of choice, served in the garden of the hotel, which was not too cold in March.

Helpful staff.

The room and shower were very spacious and clean. It is close to station and bus station, in a quiet location, close to the police station, but we heard no noise from there.

Be aware that a car near the hotel was clamped - we were traveling by train, but check on parking if you are driving.

It is a 20 minute walk to Ortygia. Not a problem for us, but some may not like this. Would stay there again.

The hotel is nothing fabulous and there isn't a great view from the window but they compensate that with the great pillows and large beds for a good night rest after a long day out. And this was all we needed. We stayed two nights there while visiting Syracuse, Ortygia and Riserva Naturale Oasi Faunistica di Vedicari. The garden for breakfast was cosy and they had a good variety on the buffet. One bad thing is they had no laundry service on board and no irons to offer, so we had to wait 24hr before we could wear what we wanted, and solely ironing price was higher than expected. Otherwise it was a great location that was not so far from the Parco Archeologico della Neapolis and Teatro Greco, and relatively close to Ortygia. Everything was easily accessible on foot and on a good time frame of about 10-20minutes the most. The parking area was convenient and never too crowded just on the street in front of the entrance, and exit to the highway was easy and convenient. We had great nights out in Ortygia drinking all we wanted and we needn't pick a cab or the car to get there and back. It is not the vacation resort hotel but for a city hotel this is a really good choice.

I made a reservation at this hotel through Booking.com. When we (two older single women) arrived we found the neighborhood questionable, with absolutely nowhere to park our car. I went into the hotel and found there was no lobby, just a reception desk in a hallway, with some rather odd looking folks standing around. The receptionist was actually quite helpful, showing us the room--which was dark and dingy--completely unacceptable for a two-day stay. He did suggest other hotels when we stated that we didn't want to stay there.

As we were reloading our luggage in our car, we noticed a couple apparently having sex in a car right near the entry to the hotel. We certainly didn't feel safe or comfortable there, even in broad daylight, and couldn't wait to get away from that area. I strongly suggest that family groups and women traveling avoid this hotel. I did report the situation to Booking.com as well, and they did not charge us for a broken reservation.

Room Tip: This is not a hotel for families and single women traveling alone.

Hotel Coloniali is located a 10 miinute walk from idylic Ortigia island. The hotel is Well organised and staff is competent, gentle and helpful.

Rooms are confortable and mostly clean although ours had old toothpaste around the wash bassin.

Freshly squeezed orange juice on a generous breakfast buffet.

Absolutely to recommend.

This hotel where we spent two nights has the great advantage of being able to park in the street outside and is equidistant from the end of Ortegia Island and the Syracusa Archaelogical site about twenty minutes walking in either direction.
It may not be in the most attractive area alongside the now unused railway tracks that lead to the port but it was quiet.
The hotel claims four star status but the facilities, excellent breakfast and price are more in the three star category. The breakfast area becomes a separate restaurant with a separate entrance in the evening which was disappointing.

Room Tip: It is quite important to sleep in a back room; we slept well but one visitor was kept awake by noisy...

Coles to the station and bus station, easy walking distance to local sights. Nice clean rooms, bathroom particularly good. Wi-fi worked well. Good prices, nice staff. Breakfast was good, the only downside was getting them to serve a coffee, the second morning we gave up and relied on the coffee pot rather then a nice 'cino.

Would definitely recommend and return.
