We were there in April with our Golden Retriever and was welcomed by the staff. She helped us with the car park and recommended a great restaurant which we went there twice! Beautiful location with a nice balcony. The only down side will be the breakkfast service, very short of staff where we had to ordered 3 times and waited for 30 mins before getting coffee.
I would highly recommend this nice place in Ortiga, get the rooms with sea view :)

nice hotel in a very good position with a great sea view.
The breakfast was ok, not special.
The bed was very comfortable, although my room was not too large.
Easy check-in check-out, reasonable price.
The position in the heart of Ortigia overlooking the ocean is what makes this hotel special.

Location of the hotel is excellent and gives you a good chance to explore the beautiful city of Siracuse. The hotel staff will also make sure you have a parking space, so feel free to come with a car. The hotel itself is very elegant, It features a fitness center and even a small chapel. Unfortunately the swimming pool is extra paid (from 35 euros up).

Service is very kind and helpful - extremely helpful, going an extra mile if needed. Plus - they are very patient with the guests request. Wi-Fi is working well throughout.

Breakfast buffet is very decent with fresh bread, juices, cakes, fruits, coffee, tea etc. and the lady that served us the breakfast was super friendly and smiling all the time!

Minus for sleep quality... the doors to the rooms are quite loud and the walls are pretty thin hence the other guests and the cleaning ladies make so much noise early in the morning you can't sleep any more...

Otherwise - great value for money. Recommended!

There are two adjacent buildings with slightly different names. We stayed in the building named Albergo Domus Mariae in which all the rooms overlook the sea. The view was magnificent, and the room was spacious and very nicely appointed with all modern amenities. The manager was a ball of energy, extremely helpful and always pleasant and friendly. Ortygia is a wonderful place for walking around and absorbing the culture, but parking can be a challenge. This property is adjacent to a safe public parking lot which is informally "managed" by a local man who gives special treatment to those staying in the hotel. Breakfast is served in the adjacent building. We found breakfast to be quite good and varied, although the servers seemed occasionally challenged by large numbers of diners. Just a minor quibble in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable stay. Highly rated.

Room Tip: We preferred this building to the adjacent one with a slightly different name because the rooms have...

Spacious and modern bedroom and bathroom, helpful and friendly reception staff, a lovely roof top terrace on which we were served excellent aperitifs....and a great location for exploring Ortygia. We had the hotel's meal one evening, simple, cheap....must be ordered in advance. Parking could have been a problem but there seems to be an informal arrangement with some people who patrol a parking lot opposite, who, for a tip, found us a space opposite the hotel and looked after the car for our two day stay. A really enjoyable visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view....they're overlooking the road as well but there was minimal tra...

Very nice hotel/albergo, centrally located in Ortigia. We had a nice room with sea-view. Clean place, friendly & helpful staff. Parking place by the hotel.

Messy breakfast, Staff not being able to serve properly and in time. Slight improvement in the second day after complaining about it.
