The Acropoli has a perfect location in the heart of this charming city. The staff was polite, efficient, and provided us with free parking close by...a real plus! The room was spotlessly clean, modern, and actually luxurious! And the price was right, too! I highly recommend this great B&B.

Reviewed 16 November 2008

We stayed here for one nights in October 2008.

The B&B has a parking deal with a nearby garage for 5 EUR p.n. (which is nice in Syracuse, you don't want to park in one of the highly unpleasant large carparks outside the old centre).

The room was very clean and modern for a B&B (LCD TV and things like that). The bathroom was also clean and brand new with one of those showers that has jets coming from all sides. There was a permanent damp smell in the bathroom though which would hint at a design flaw as it really was kept perfectly clean. Breakfast was OK but not great by a long shot.

In short nice modern rooms in the centre of the old city (pity about the smell in the bathroom), for breakfast I would recomend going out to one of the many small bakers or coffeeshops.

  • Liked — Nice room, bed
  • Disliked — Damp smell in bathroom

Ok, so we left it very late to find accommodation. We didnt know that the Greek festival of drama was being held in Syracuse when we planned to be there. Yes, stupid. However we felt very lucky when after numerous phone calls from Palermo we managed to get a room for 3 nights at Hotel Acropoli.

Now we know why.

Construction work was taking place in the hotel , and also in the building next door. Need I say more?

We were disappointed that this vital piece of information wasnt supplied to us when we made the booking. When we approached the owners about the problem, they were very dismissive and didnt even offer a discount on the room rate. We werent impressed.

The rooms itself was fine and the hotel is in a very good location... but beware. The construction is not even nearly finished.

Located in the Via Roma in the heart of historic Ortygia, the B&B Acropoli
proved to be one of the best values on my recent trip to Sicily. It's a little
hard to find (Via Roma 15, look for the sign above the door) and when I was
there they were working on the coutyard, so it looked closed. For 50 Euros a
night, I had a beautifuly furnished room, with Air, Fridge, Hairdryer, Phone,
Shower, and Cable TV. I also had access to a basicaly private terrace.

The receptionist, Maria, speaks good English and is very helpful.

They also provide a generous breakfast.

The only downside is that they are working on the building next door and it gets
a bit noisy in the morning. And, as everywhere in Ortygia, parking stinks (I
was not using a car, so it did not matter)

Highest reccomendation!!

Note: Do not confuse with B&B L'Acanto, located in the same building, and
shockingly shabby!
