“worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

Excellent location in the heart of Ortigia. Just an apartment for rent - no B&B. if you come by car agree with the owners as the official entry into Ortigia is highly limited. Come in autumn and consider visiting Noto and Catania while you are in Ortigia.

We arrived very late and disoriented having driven from Palermo, getting very lost on the local roads, but our host was waiting for us and led us on his scooter by moonlight round the magical island of Ortigia (think Dubrovnik with a Sicilian twist), through lovely winding streets and finally through a large wooden doorway to a courtyard, which our apartment looked onto. Inside, the palatial size of the main room exceeded our expectations, as did the modern design, which complimented the old stonework and beamed roof beautifully. When I saw the enormous roof terrace, I thought I'd been upgraded, but no, this was the apartment I'd booked. Lovely breakfasts and late night drinks were enjoyed up there, admiring the Siracusa sky. I felt I had stumbled on a real find that offered more for my money than I'd ever find in a hotel. As well as having it's own extensive Greek ruins, Siracusa is the perfect base for exploring Noto, Ragusa Ibla and Scicli, for Baroque splendour and hill town heaven.
Tips: avoid Modica, it's a maze and there's only one chuch of note.
Inspector Montalbano fans, head straight for Ragusa Ibla, the place is the series' main set.

We stayed in "limone" apartment. Lovely big room. Steep steps up to a lovely private balcony up on roof of apartment which had table & chairs. Check in for apartment is at Not'art boutique hotel about 10-15 minute walk from apartment. We arrived by train and the member of staff (really sorry forgot his name - he was very helpful on arrival and departure day) took us by car up to the apartment. Great location plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Would stay here again

Lovely big room, comfortable bed, hard pillows, very dirty floor rug (we rolled this up, and hid the funny furry cushions) noisy air-con due to power fluctuations, big roof terrace but with steepish steps to get there, comfortable dining chairs and good parasol and two sun chairs; we preferred it to the more expensive hotel we stayed at in Taormina!

Stayed in the Limone suite at the Not'Art aparthotel in March 2012. It is a huge room with self catering facilities. The decor was ok but there were some awful dirty looking cushions on the bed that that we had to move. The private terrace for the Limone suite is actually on the roof - up quite a lot of steep steps... so may not be suitable for some people. Sadly there is an aircon unit on the roof which was extremely loud when on and would spoil time spent on the roof. It seemed to be linked to other people's aircon, not just ours as it would kick in when our aircon in the room had been off all day so you can't control when the roof is noisy. The room was very cold - probably fine later in the year but in March it was freezing and we couldn't get the aircon machine to produce any hot air. There were no blankets or extra bedding so we had to wear a LOT of extra clothes when in the room! The steps up to the roof jut out half way across the bathroom door so you have to be very careful not to walk into them - again not great for kids/disabled/elderly etc. There are no staff on site - you have to go to the hotel (a few mins drive away) to check in and out. We used the hotel garage which is just outside the apartments - there is a man who parks all the cars in it and moves them round so as to fit in as many as possible. Remarkable how tight they pack them in! This was useful as I'm not sure where else we would have parked but it took up to half hour to get our car out when we wanted it on the 2nd day. I think they assume you will be leaving your car there until the end of your stay - try to make it clear if you want it in between... but the guy speaks no English!! Overall good apartment though.

Ortygia is a must for visitors to SIcily, and Not'Art is a delightful boutique hotel on the city edge of the island. Easy to get to from the train or bus station, close to the wharves, and ideal for walking through the narrow old city of Syracusa, the owners of Not'Art have created a stylish experience in a 2700 year old city.
The staff are all friendly and very helpful and reception is open 24/7.
The hotel building includes a large bar and a cafe, along with a stylish clothes and fabric shop.
Note that the top floor rooms have only high windows, hence no view. But that's not really a problem as the rooms are large and well appointed.
