“Beautiful view and great location!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We booked a room with ocean front view and a small (standing only) balcony. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated but pretty small and pricey, however, we decided the view and location was worth it. We had free parking right outside the hotel and never used the car while there since the island is very walkable. The road passed between the hotel and sea but was quiet at night. The bathroom was nice but the shower was small and hard to adjust the temperature. The bathroom sink did not have a stopper to allow you to fill the sink which was a problem for us since we were hand washing our clothes - but luckily we could wait for our next stop. We thought the breakfast buffet was outstanding - many more choices than our previous stops and all very good. There was juices, coffee, tea, breads, rolls, yogurt, hot dishes, meats, cheeses, several cereals, fresh fruit, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful and spoke English. We really enjoyed our three nights here and would stay again .

Room Tip: Splurge on a sea view room.

Nice spot right on the sea. Easy walk to attractions and sites. the staff was very helpful and friendly. The gal at the front desk gave ideas for eating and info about mass times. Our internet worked very well, but others in our group had trouble. We had a nice balcony. There is not any exercise equipment here. The breakfast was quite nice.

The Hotel Livingston is set in a beautiful location and if you have a sea view the view is lovely.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and ours was very comfortable if a little small. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent by Sicillian standards. Parking can be arranged and is worth while booking in advance. The only real irritation was that the wifi does not work in the bedrooms - you need to go to the lobby or upstairs sitting area - where it is ok.

Room Tip: Worth paying for the sea view

Great location on the waterfront. The single rooms are quite small and awkward with a double bed but adequate. The decor is old and the beds are hard. The single room on the bottom floor was very dark. The bathrooms are clean. The wifi wasn't very good in a few rooms but works well in the lobby despite dropping out frequently. The restaurant and buffet breakfast were great and the waiter very attentive and friendly. The reception staff were also friendly and helpful. The saunas didn't seem to work when we tried to use them except the dry heat one and the jacuzzi was quite cool

We stayed in Ortigia for 3 nights which was more than enough to enjoy every bit of this tiny island. The hotel was wonderful with great staff well appointed rooms. Even parking :-) Spa pool is OK but you aren't going to spend hours in there !!
Saturday evening the Duomo Ortigia Piazza turns Madrid esq. Brilliant.
Great place for a short stay, and with lots of restaurants you don't have to spend a fortune on eating, but you can if you want

We only stayed one night, but it was charming. Our room, and many others have small balconies that overlook the ocean. At the lower end of Ortigia, everything is within walking distance. We even walked from the ancient Greek and Roman ruins back to the hotel.

Great location facing east to the sea. The road around the island separates you from the sea and this is busy all day but quite at night when we were there. Staff helpful and room s good, bathrooms excellent.
