I am not pleased with this hotel. First, I phoned to book a room. They told me it was 60 euros a night. Then, when we got there, they wanted to charge us with 5 euros more!
The room was very cold and we had to ask for the remote control for the air conditioner, to make it hotter. They werent very happy to give it to us! They didnt care about us freezing there. And to finish with itk, we were asked not to pay with card because of the price confusion.
Really cheeky service, I was very disappointed. I think they should be more concerned about the customers.
I would not go back there.

We are an english couple, we have been to Hotel Archimede last months for a tour of Siracuse, suggested from a tourist guide.
We found it very comfortable place, managed from a very friendly people. Very great Staff!!
All the service were very good.
Our room was brilliant, a wide room , clean, tidy and perfumed.
The location is good as well, the Hotel is located in a good area nd is between Ortigia island and the Archeological park. The car parking is watched 24 h on 24 by CCTV.
The breakfast was incluse in the price (75 euros) and we found it very good and fresh! A very nice italian breakfast.
Considering the price we can advice Hotel Arrchimede to anyone!
Excellent!

Hotel Archimede B&B was recommended in a recent Rough Guide edition (1993) as an OK budget accommodation. We have just returned and wanted to advise that we were not pleased with this hotel even though we found Rough Guide very reliable in all other instances. Most of this hotel's staff were cold, unfriendly and inattentive. The hotel itself is only meters away from the train station on a busy street close to a somewhat rundown piazza between the city of Siracusa and the island of Ortygia. Although close to the train, it was not noisy although that might be because we think we were only one of two rooms occupied. Our room was dark, lit only with fluorescent lights and had extensive mould in the bathroom and some mould also on the bedroom walls. There was a small breakfast available although one day we were reprimanded for coming down too early for it (15 minutes before the official "breakfast time"), even though it had all been laid out before we came to the dining room. Considering the price (we paid 70E) I would not recommend staying at this hotel for any reason.

, Manager at Hotel Archimede, responded to this review, 16 July 2006
We would like to apologize with the customer that have been in my hotel on 22 march 2005. I could be presumptuos to say that he wrong hotel.
We can accept if he sais the staff were cold but we can't accept the word inattentive; the staff is really serious, polite and professional.
Ourofficial Breakfast time is from 8.30 to 10.00 but sistematically we change it for every CUSTOMER demand. We choose a soft atmosphere for our hotel that's why the rooms weren't dark.(there are not dark definitly.)
I exclude every kind of problem about cleanliness, mould and tidyness.The building is totally restored and rearranged from 18th months and we pay very very attention about cleanliness and hygiene.
We feel sorry for this customer but since 1999 that's the first complain received.
We will take an advice from this complain too, and we will promise that situation like that never will happen again.
