Hmmmmm. Have mixed feelings about this place. We stayed in the apartment which slept four people. Two single beds on the lower floor, and a double bed on the mezzanine level. It is an old building, and lots of character.
The lady who greeted us Roberta, was extremely helpful, and such a wonderful lady, who was extremely welcoming, and a great asset to the place. She was extremely helpful in helping me park the car, recommending restaurants etc
Sadly a number of negatives with the accomodation. Firstly the double bed, it was more or a camp bed. Not at all comfortable, and I didnt get any good sleep for two nights. In fact on the second night, my wife, who slept so badly the first night, went and slept in one of the single beds on the lower level with her mother. The shower!!! Well I have never in my life been in such a small shower cubicle. It was virually impossible to bend down to grab the shampoo or even get my hands above my shoulders to wash my hair. Also such limited hot water, that we had to take an hour between each shower for the water to heat up again. Also the plug in the sink didn't work, making shaving use more hot water than was neccesary, especially as it was in such short supply.
I don't want to be negative about any place, and look for the positives. It is a great location, the young lady Roberta, running the place was a delight and it was very clean. At 90 euros a night for three people, I guess you get what you pay for. I have read other reviews, and it was one of the reasons we booked the place. I think maybe the rooms for two are just better, and I just had the wrong room.
If you read this Roberta, I am sorry to give an average score. If scoring was based on just you, it would have been an excellent score. Thank you for being a great host xxx

Room Tip: I think my review says it all. From other reviews I have read, the rooms for couples are great, but the one for the four people isnt.

Very nice and helpful host Roberta - she assisted us with everything we needed; the welcome was friendly and efficient, the tips about the town were helpful and superb restaurants recommendations. No problem with English.
Excellent location in the heart of island. Very large and clean rooms, though little bit "empty". Comfi beds. Italian breakfast (cappuccino and croissant) in the cafe not far from residencia.
Too small boiler for hot water. As we were there off season the room was bit chill.

Stayed at the Ortigia Residence at the end of March 2012. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and with the help of the owner (Roberta) everything was perfect. Roberta was "always" available to assist us with anything we needed. The location, room and value was excellent. I would not stay anywhere else when we return to Syracuse for our next visit.

Stayed on Ortigia island in Syracuse at the beginning of October and was absolutely delighted with this beautiful bed and breakfast. The rooms were enormous - bedroom/living room, kitchen and bathroom. It was fully equiped for self-catering and spotlessly clean. Roberta was so helpful, providing us with whatever information requested - bus timetables, directions, etc. We thought the breakfast would be disappointing as we had looked up the details and saw that it was only coffee and a pastry. But in Italy the coffee is always delicious and the pastries are no ordinary pastries - choice of huge croissants with different fillings - my favourite being the marmalade croissant. As our stay included a Sunday we had breakfast in 2 different cafes and both were excellent. Was tempted to not give a review and to keep this delightful b&b a secret as I will definitely be going back!

I stayed here with my wife and 1 year old son in April 2011. I was greeted on arrival in Siracusa by Roberta who had sent an email a couple of days earlier with tips to make things very straight-forward. She could not have been more helpful or pleasant. I stayed for two weeks in Sicily in total and we stayed in 5/4* hotels in most places with a couple of 3* hotels in certain places. This place offered by far the most superior location / value for expenditure ratio. The apartment was perfect and was very spacious and totally spotless. (i was initially a little worried cause it was so cheap - no need). The only semi-negative was the steps up to the apartment with my pregnant wife and 1 year old but this was a very minor inconvenience and Roberta was kind enough to help us carry our stuff up. I really liked this stay.
