Hotel Mediterraneo
Ranked #50 of 75 Hotels in Syracuse
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We chose this hotel because it was easy to get to and there was free parking. It was just a short walk to Ortigia for the sights. The staff was very helpful, offering exceptional service by making several phone calls to help us track down our luggage which had not made the transferring flight. However, only one of the staff really spoke English :-) The internet did not work in our room, however there are very nice small landings with comfortable seating areas where the wifi works, so we almost felt that we had a separate internet room next to our bedroom. Breakfast was average for a Sicilian hotel.

Stayed: July 2012, travelled with family

I selected this hotel on the basis of other reviews and was not disappointed. Everything was perfect: it is charming, clean, well-run, good bathroom, air conditioning and breakfast. I wish though that it was a little bit nearer to Ortygia. It's about 15-20 minutes walk.

The hotel is well located just between the new and the old town. The staff is very friendly and you can park your car for free right in front of the door. Rooms are quiet and confortable.

Room Tip: There is a lift so the level does not matter.

Very friendly staff and Sicilian decor.
Well situated for us as we wanted to be within walking distance of Ortigia, the train and bus stations.
On the edge of the business area and only a stone's throw from Ortigia.The setting is not scenic so not really a hotel to idle away the hours in, but a good base.
Our room was nice but the beds need upgrading and were not very comfortable.
Great to have tea and coffee in the room and breakfast from 7.30 - 10.00 am is very civilised when on holiday.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor. May be better to have room on 1st as stairs and lift a bit awkward to use...

This hotel was the fourth of six hotels that we stayed in during our 2 week tour of the island.
The other hotels we stayed in were Mercure Centro in Palermo, Villa Sant Andrea, Best Western Kaos in Agrigento, Belvadere Taormina and Relais Santa Anastasia near Cefalu. Please check out my reviews to these hotels. We drove around the island for the two weeks so if you would like any tips on driving in Sicily please make contact with me.
Wi-Fi – Free Connectivity is very good the connection can be made in the rooms and it is unlimited with regard to the time allowed.
We arrived here for a two night stay after a long 4 hour drive and we were very tired and very disappointed with the hotel. From the outside it looks really tired and rundown. The check in was done by Veronica who was very helpful and pointed out different areas to visit and a couple of restaurants.
She then showed us to our room which was literally 5 steps away from reception and clearly for a disabled person, I do not have anything against this and it is good that they have these facilities, but the shower was very tatty and there was not much room in it as there was a seat in it. There was a lift door in the room which had a table in front of it and all night at regular intervals there was a large ‘clunk’. There seemed to be no reason for this and it kept us awake during the night, this coupled with the fact that we heard every phone call that came into reception and every guest coming and going. There was no plug for the sink.
The breakfast was good with fresh cake etc and they made fresh coffee as you ordered it.
The other rooms may well be different we did not get to see them, the hotel was full so we could not move rooms.
This hotel is quaint and it is very expensive, it was £140 per night where the previous hotel (Best Western Kaos was only £84 per night, it is basically a B&B rather than a hotel.
On a more positive note if you are in Siracusa make sure you visit the island of Ortiga, there are some beautiful buildings to see and quaint little streets, typical Italy, we visited the Castle at the bottom of the island 4 Euro each not bad value for money, we also took a boat trip and paid 15 euro each to go around the island and then go to some sea caves, on the way back we stopped for a swim so make sure you wear your swimming costume.
On our first night we ate at a restaurant called Zsa, this is located on ‘Via Roma’ on the island, we had seafood pizza and spaghetti seafood and it was fabulous so fresh and tasty, worth a visit.
On our second night we ate at the Osteria Seba, very good pasta do not have the roasted meats, they do not know how to do this in Italy, stick to the pasta.
The following morning before we set off for Taormina we went to the Greek Amphitheatre 10 Euro each. Make sure that you go to the ticket office on the right as you drive up to it as you will be sent back to get a ticket. Well worth the visit, the biggest in Europe.
