“Lovely hotel, lovely location.”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

. This hotel was nice, rooms were clean and they got this charcterist which each room got a different colour which I appreciated a lot this idea. Hotel staff are nice. I recommend this hotel if you want to visit ortigia or relax for week.

I visited Syracusa for 4 days for work and I was suggested to stay at Hotel Sbarcadero.To be honest I didn't expect as a small hotel offer you so many comforts.
I found the Hotel really nice and clean. All the Hotel was renovated I was really impressed from the staff that was really outstanding and helpful to advice place to go like tourists attractions
The hotel is located just in front of the seaside, where you find equipped, free and really beautiful beaches.
The hotel area is very quite and safe. It has a very strategic location because you have everything around from shops, restaurants and just 10 minutes walking to reach Ortigia, the historical centre of Syracusa and a typical market where you can enjoy fresh fish that I never see before!!!! Really Amazing...
We left our car at the HOTEL free parking, just in front of it.
The room was spacious and clean and has all the comforts that you need it.
I am sure next time I will visit Syracusa, I will stay at this Hotel that I really recommend! The money you spend is really worthy

Hotel is located at the harbour, so you share your breakfast with the local fisherman. The hotel itself consists of renovated fishermans houses, nicely decorated with fresh colours. Very quant! The rooms are spateous and clean, with a very nice shower. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the city center. But some other sites like Neopolis are close by. As are some of the best seafood restaurants.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOUTIQUE FIVE STARS FOR 2 OR 3 STAR PRICES (at least off season).

this is a newly recently (1 year) renovated charming hotel at the old fishing port on siracusa. the view of the port is lovely, though there isn't much of a view from the rooms, don't let this deter you do have great rooftop sitting and view access and its a fantastic place to stay. the hotel is a 2 floor easily accessible (no lift but only a few wide open steps) boutique style hotel with different colored rooms that have a bit of a different feel to each one, with beautifully tiled matching bathrooms. my room had a modified loft, bed was comfortable, tv just fine, small fridge in the room, and good lighting, and lovely windows, that when open, with white chiffon curtains that flow in the breeze. there is a small alcove courtyard, and a lovely roof terrace. the rooms are VERY VERY spacious and impeccably clean. it was very peaceful and quiet but i can't speak for when the hotel is full.

the walk to ortigia (centro storico) is a nice stroll, only about 10-15 minutes (with good shops, restaurants, and bars) and if need be, you can even take a local bus. the hotel is within an opposite direction short stroll to the catacombs and a little bit of longer walk, still easily manageable, to the archaeological park i am assuming open during "on season." yes, the area is a bit desolate in the evenings, especially in winter, however, i will also choose off the beat and path because i loathe congested tourists traps.

the staff is one of the friendliest and accommodating i've met in italy and i've been here almost 2 months and on 2 other occasions. the general manager graciously even offered and gave me an unsolicited lift to the bus station which i thought was super kind of him. the restaurant has good service and great affordable food. its a lovely little trattoria style cafe, tables both inside and out.

i usually like to try different hotels but if i came back to siracusa i would stay here without doubt. and siracusa i would come back to. it is a VERY clean city (and is only a 20 minute drive to a beautiful beach resort area terrauzza and plemmirio) especially compared to catania and messina (two cities i would choose not to return to)

The hotel is on marine port; the location was a little isolated in the evening. The property apparently used to be an old fishermen's quarter. However, rooms were large and clean. As it was the Christmas eve, the restaurant was closed, and hence we walked to the centre. The breakfast was simple, but the hostess kindly made fresh juice and cappucino for us. An excellent value for money.

Room Tip: It may be better to have lower floor rooms, as the upper floor is at the road level from the other s...

Sbarcadero hotel is just awesome! Located in a perfect position just few minutes walk from the city center of "Ortigia". Prices are convenient and affortable.
The staff is incredibly friendly and always willing to help giving tips about the city. They also give extra services like laundry and boat trips providing extremely good prices which cannot be find anywhere!
Hotel Sbarcadero is the best place to go in winter or summer whatever your trip will be focused: cultural, relax or for work.

We stayed as a family (3 teen-aged boys) at the beginning of October 2012.
The hotel is modern, with very big rooms, the kids had a "loft" with the 3rd bed and a roof balcony with view to the harbor. Our room (parents) did not have a view (only to the inner courtyard), but this did not bother us. each room had a small refrigerator with complimentary bottles of cold water that was very refreshing and a nice welcome! The rooms are very large and spacious, without frills, but all we needed was there - a very comfortable bed, bedside tables, a desk & 1 chair ( another chair would be welcome,,,) great air conditioner, and large window. The bathroom had also a bide, and my only complaint would be that the shower stall was quite small and lacking good drainage. I would also welcome a shelf in the bathroom for toiletries.
The staff was very nice and helpful! we felt very comfortable to ask for advice, and even managed to communicate with the night desk man )that did not speak English, but managed to understand us fine).
The hotel is right in the harbor, which is really great. Going out and seeing the piers and fishing boats with the beautiful island of Ortigia in the background was lovely!
Breakfast was a small buffet of pastries, mostly sweet, a few salty, a bit of sliced cheese (& some sliced meat that we didn't eat), a few yogurts, packaged toast, butter & jam. Good coffee & juice, and the kids requested chocolate milk and there was no problem getting that for them. all in all breakfast was different from what we are used to, but sufficient and good (especially the fresh pastries!)
Next door is a very good Bar-restaurant (Mividia) that has great pizzas & pastas. their foccacia is not to be missed! nothing fancy, just good local food at a good price.
The only bad experience we had at the hotel was brushing against the cacti at the entrance to the hotel! After spending some time with our tweezers (lucky we had one!) we tried to remember to stay clear of them!
There is a lot of free parking right in front of the hotel-great.
All in all, very recommended hotel. We would come again! (just please move the cactus:-) )

Room Tip: Room 202 is a triple with a roof balcony that gives a view of the harbor!
