This hotel is a real scam!!! Never a 3 stars hotel.
The hotel is located directly on a dirty parking space. In front there is the port of the old and obsolete fishing boats, not the view presented in the hotel management's pictures. Nothing picturesque there, trust me! Some men dressed in shabby clothes who look like some beggars were drinking at the hotel's "restaurant"... Therefore we didn't want to have breakfast there the next morning.
We received an UNDERGROUND ROOM, 1 m below the ground!! The room didn't have any window. The only natural light came from the door's glass and the "view" was the wall of the building in front or the feet of the people passing by the inner "patio".
The minibar contained 1 bottle of sparkling water and 1 bottle of still water. That's it!
The area surrounding the hotel is a suspicious neighborhood.
There is no point in staying at this hotel (for the reasons above + the distance to Ortygia) when you pay the same price for a room at a real 3 star hotel right in Ortygia. We changed the hotel after the first night and found a wonderful hotel at the same price. I'm gonna review it as well on tripadvisor.
