We stayed in this hotel as part of a cosmos tour of sicily.
The hotel reception is lovely and welcoming, and the room was equally as lovely and clean with a generously sized bathroom. The evening meal was delightful and the restaurant decor was modern and stylish. The waiting staff were also very kind and friendly. Breakfast was basic breads, yoghurts and meats, some fruit was offered but appeared to be tinned.
The hotel isn't in an ideal location for evening walks or a wander to a bar or shop. We wanted to walk to Ortygia in the evening and found ourselves in darkened streets with no shops or people near by. It seems the hotel is set in the business area of the town.
As a whole the hotel is fine for one night but I wouldn't not recommend an extended stay in the area.
