“Best hotel for the business traveler to Siracusa”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The Antico Hotel Roma 1880 offers the business traveler a host of conveniences that make it the clear choice for the business traveler to Siracusa. The staff, including Sofia, Elisa, and Enzo are knowledgeable, multi-lingual, and can assist with any transportation or reservation need. The single rooms are immaculately clean, thoughtfully furnished, and temperature controlled. The bathrooms are modern and commodious. The free Internet WiFi in the rooms and the computer station in the lobby offer high-speed connectivity at any time. The breakfast and excellent restaurant are to the highest standards of quality and service. If there is time for touring or relaxing in Sircusa's center, the main tourist attractions are a short distance away on foot or by car service. Rates are reasonable, so value for the money is high.

Room Tip: Check with the staff to address special requirements for rooms.

Our family of four adults stayed at Hotel Roma. It is a great choice for Ortigia. The location is absolutely perfect. They offer four nice bikes that you can use to tour the island. All four of us stayed in one room...a garden suite. It was very nice. We had lots of room, including a little patio area and a sauna!

Breakfast was included and it was excellent.

The best part about Hotel Roma is the folks at the front desk. They will do anything for you and they are very friendly. We drove and they rode in the car with me to help me find a parking place. They gave me a parking pass. They helped us with the bikes and made great restaurant reservations for us.

Stay at Hotel Roma. You will love it!

We visit Ortigia annually and have have just returned from our third visit - this time ten days - to this very good **** hotel. They must be doing something right.
Apart from its ideal location it is the staff who make this such a pleasant experience. Of course the front desk are friendly and helpful but this is a rare hotel where ALL the staff seem to want to give real service. The chambermaids kept our room meticulously clean and made it up when suited US not them, the bar staff were happy to learn to make hot chocolate the way WE like it, and all the other little touches which suggest a management that cares.

Well appointed room with a balcony in a very well located area just behind the main square. Perhaps a little generic but a decent breakfast buffet & helpful staff. Worth paying a little extra to get hotel parking

Dear Mr .Bower,

thanks for having written your review.

Every customer's opinion is important for us and can be a good point for improving.

In your comments everything seems to be ok except the hotel's style that you define "generic".

That's a personal opinion and as for all personal opinions is incontrovertible, you may find our style "generic", but we are not "generic" just think (for example) that all the bathroom's ceramic coating are hand made, and that's not generic , may not like it but it's not "generic"
same for curtains, to remain inside the room.
Not to mention the internal patio and the Athena room which preserves both ancient greek and medieval excavations..

Maybe your only one day stay was not enough to have a look at the little hotel treasures, hope next time you may have time to discover them.

Best regards

Alfio Settembre

I stayed at the Hotel Roma for 5 weeks last year. By the time I left the staff were my friends and I couldn't thank them enough for their kindness, knowledge and willingness to help make my holiday a truly wonderful experience.
As a solo traveller, I found this hotel was in a perfect spot for exploring Ortigia from early morning until late at night.
I hope to return soon. Tina.

The. Rooms were spacious albeit not a big fan of peach, the staff are very helpful, you have a little balcony to step out onto and breakfast is good. The best thing is the location right next to the duomo and all the restaurants and shops.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in order to accomadate the setup for an art show that was being staged just down the street for Catherine Carilli. Besides the location which is wonderful in terms of being in the heart of things, the staff at the front desk went beyond the call of duty in helping communicate with our Italian shipper when things got held up at customs.

If you are looking for a good run, head out the hotel and go to the right, and down Via Roma to the sea wall which you can follow if you keep going right around the entire island. There is a brief section where you cut across the area near the bridges, to reach the other side past the morning market to reach the sea wall again, keep right and return up Via Roma. Go earlier in the morning before the traffic comes into town, and you can almost have the whole roadway to yourself.

Room Tip: We got moved to a Junior suite in order to extend our stay another night, and while the room was big...
