“Good renovated hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

Hotel is just located outside the old Syracusa city in an old building that was completely renovated. The reception is efficient but it would help if they volunteer more information on car parking and supply the guest with a map of the city with major attractions. The room we had is of a good size, clean and well furnished; the only point is that it gave on to the street and the street noise did wake us very early. The breakfast is very good and can be improved by adding fresh fruits. The hotel offers 10% discount if the booking is made 3 days in advance. A paid parking lot is available around 50m from the hotel.

We stayed 2 nights at the Alfeo. Very positive experience. Our room was on the last floor in the roof. We had to climb a few steps outside our room to access a small terrace and have a gorgeous view on Ortygia. This is true that from the bedroom there was absolutely no view but a wall. There was plenty of light though. High ceiling. Warm colors. Large room and bathroom. Nice entrance. Everything was done tastefully and very modern.
Breakfast was really average and service at breakfast was about the same ......
we decided to go to a nearby bar with better pastries.
Frontdesk was very helpful and cordial.

This hotel is situated just before the bridge that connects to the old village Ortigia. Beautiful town and lots to do so would stay at least 2 or 3 days. Fantastic history and the museo Archeologica Paolo Orsi is very good. The catacombs are also very interesting. Very friendly staff - Rita Scamporlino and her team. Big rooms with a good breakfast.

We should have stayed on Ortygia, which is not this hotel's fault. Plus points, it was equidistant from Ortygia and the bus/train station, which made it handy for exploring Syracuse or farther afield. The maid kept the rooms spotless and the breakfast was good (the restaurant staff were friendly too). Minuses, the neighbourhood was quite sketchy after dark, so it was a shame that the bar was never open and there was no room service (not when we asked, anyway). Also, the female on reception was collosally rude; one assumes she owns the place. On balance this is clearly aimed at business travellers; if we returned to Siracusa we wouldn't return to this hotel.

On day four of our bus tour we stayed at the lovely hotel Alfeo in Syracuse Sicily. This was a very modern hotel with lovely rooms. Great breakfast. The staff were great. It was just a short walk from the beautiful Island of Ortigia. What a lovely place Ortigia is. We were taken to the fantastic food market by our local guide it was such an interesting place. Ortigia has some wonderful places to eat. If you are going to Sicily Ortigia and Syracuse are a must.

This was a comfortable hotel, within a short walk to Ortigia Island and easy access to main archeological sites. The room and bathroom were minimalist modern but immaculate with quality bath fixtures. Our room overlooked the inner quadrangle (no view) and we had a problem with mosquitoes the first night when we opened the window, solved by using the air conditioner.Otherwise, we found the hotel staff helpful and the common areas tastefully decorated in Art Deco and comfortable. A computer for guest use off the lobby was well-used. Street parking for our rental car worked out although it might be a problem in the high season. As another guest mentioned, the Wash 'N Dry "self-serve" laundry just two blocks away was a wonderful find. David (Italian) and Mariah (Canadian), not only launder your clothes, but fold and package them in plastic for easy pick-up--and return any money you've prepaid if your wash turns out to take fewer machines. Amuni, a recently opened restaurant next door to the laundry served the best fish we had in Sicily, along with a 14-item antipasto. We liked it so well, we ate there twice during our stay and just had Chef/Owner Hector select what he wanted to prepare the second night. He produced a sumptuous feast.
