From the grotty neighbouring alleys, frequented by fish traders 24/7, to the tired decor literally falling apart at the seams - we checked out, a day early, to get away from this "4-star" farce. Staying in 2 different rooms, both were far too small for the large, dark-wood beds, which featured knee-bashing legs, we constantly banged into. We tried the breakfast once and didn't bother again; stale old cakes / pastries, we had seen being set up, at 1am the previous night, then stored next to the lobby all day, every day. None of the staff were particularly warm or communicative. Making up the room was poorly done (it wasn't swept once, in 4 days) and the mini-bar, never replenished. The decor, circa 1990, features lurid tones of orange and lime and overall, there was not a sign of any style, luxury or even value. Skip it and stay on nearby Ortigia itself - even a B&B would be of a higher standard.
