Let's start with the positives.
Clean and good location.
Ok, now that's over with. There is no way this should be a 4 star. The rooms, certainly the one I was in was more like a soulless motel room, even Premier Inn have better rooms. No natural light apart from a tiny skylight.
Breakfast ...... If you like tinned fruit, enough cake to give you a coronary, scrambled powdered eggs that were disgusting to look at never mind eat, worse still, cold coffee, it may have been warm at 7.30am but by 8.30........ Tepid.
The Italians are known for making coffee, not in this hotel, that's for sure.
Why would you serve tinned fruit when the whole island is a verdant paradise?
Beyond belief.
For the price almost 400 euro for 3 nights, think they may have taken lessons from Dick Turpin.
Never again............

Have just returned from fabulous veg nights at the Alberto Alfeo. It is ideally situated for the island of Ortigia - a five minute walk. Although no parking, we managed to get a space on the street outside without any problem. On check in, the male receptionist was not very friendly - my Italian is a bit rusty but he didn’t help me out. Anyway, Alessandro was a gem - very mannerly and helpful. The hotel is typical Italian and our room was fab. Very large and spacious with a jacuzzi bath which was great. Breakfast was nice howeve the restaurant was closed most nights although we ate out every night anyway in Ortigia. Overall, this hotel is fabulous if you’re visiting the Old town I would definitely recommend it.

Five minutes walk from Ortygia the old island 'heart' of Syracuse and ten minutes in the other direction from bus and train stations. Very friendly reception, rooms immaculately clean and outstanding spread on offer at breakfast.
Only drawbacks were that 3rd floor rooms have roof-top 'viewing platforms' rather than balconies, access to which is via what looks like a Fire Exit; and although the hotel has a bar and a restaurant, opening hours tend to be rather random.

This hotel is centrally located and is clean with spacious rooms by European standards. Two blocks from Old Town and middle of shopping district. Public parking one block away and cheap. Room had a few minor running water issues. Has a restaurant and friendly staff but do not recommend. All our dishes were very salty. Too many really good restaurants around. Worth the stay.

There were many nice aspects to this hotel. Our first impression was the generous size of the room with a small lounge area on entry. The walk-in shower was much appreciated as we admired the smart tiles in the bathroom.

Bath robes, slippers, tissues next to bed were only some of the special touches.

Breakfast was very good with considerable variety including another flavour granita.
In the lounge area, adjacent to reception, one could help oneself to a refreshing lemon granita. I encourage other hotels to copy this!
We were very happy with this hotel.
