“Top quality hospitality”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

This intimate boutique style hotel offers quality rooms and personal hospitality in a wonderful location with unique value for money. Situated in the heart of Ortigia the staff will take care of parking arrangements for your (rental) car so don't let this scare you away. Staff speak English very well and are genuinely helpful making your stay enjoyable. Great breakfast served outside with dramatic views. Book a room with a (stunning) view if possible.

From the moment of my (unexpectedly early) arrival to the time of departure I felt extraordinarily welcome and valued as a customer.

The hotel is the result of an incredible labour of love by the owners and this shines through in just about every aspect of a stay here.

The family is truly delightful, and there seems to be no limit to the effort that they will make to ensure that their guests enjoy their stay both in the hotel and Syracuse itself.

My room was attractive although not particularly big. The bathroom was really very small but well equipped. A very efficient shower. Nice towels and soaps etc. Efficient air conditioning. I had a sea view which was ever changing and interesting. There is a small flat screen TV but virtually nothing in the English Language. However, barring illness I can't see why anybody staying here would want to watch TV....

Breakfast is an experience. So much to choose from and just about everything that could be home made has been. If you like your coffee strong ask Alberto to make it for you!!! The terrace where breakfast is served has gorgeous views and you can idly contemplate life sitting with a drink any time you choose.

I can't wait to come back, but fear that with all these rightly wonderful reviews it is going to become increasingly hard to find vacancies!

Room Tip: Get a sea view.

We stayed here for the last 3 nights of our 2 week honeymoon in Sicily. And we were so happy to end our incredible trip in Henry's House.

The hotel is very charming and beautiful with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the street below. The room was very comfortable with good air-con and a lovely bathroom and shower. The only thing was because the bed is antique is was quite noisy. The room was beautifully decorated with lots of character.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of selection. Plus you can eat it on the roof terrace overlooking the sea.

The location is at the end of Ortigia (the old town) so you are perfectly placed to visit all the sites, restaurants and to go swimming off the rocks.

The hotel arranged a taxi to get us to and from the bus station which cost €10.

We would highly recommend staying here. Just wished we could have stayed longer...

Room Tip: We were in room 309. The bed was quite noisy and you could hear everything from next door as there a...

I's really a very original place, you feell like you are in somebody's old house... and the taste of this owner is very present everywhere: old forniture, curtains, carpets, nothing is trivial or "hotelish".
Good and complete breakfast served on a terrace on the sea.
Service is attentive and very present - Sicilians have a special way.
Only small negative: the paintings - but that's very personal.

This hotel just opened but is furnished entirely with antiques that the father has been collecting for years. We stayed here in May and were extremely well treated. One day there was a film being made which necessitated moving our car. One of the brothers drove our car around all of Ortigya until he found a free parking spot. and then when we left, he and his father took the scooter and picked up the car for us, which was at least 15 minutes away. what incredible service. the location was perfect for walking and sightseeing. their restaurant suggestions were topnotch. Breakfast was delightful and we were able to eat on a patio overlooking the sea. but most importantly, the atmosphere was one of how can we help you, how can we make your stay with us and in our city more enjoyable. We enjoyed our time in this family hotel.

Great hotel to stay at in Syracuse. We booked on a whim not doing too much research and could have not been more pleased with our choice. The hotel has 2 terraces with magnificent waterfront views. No need to spend the extra money on a beach front view room as you can enjoy breakfast, wine, etc.. anytime on the terraces. The brothers who own the hotel go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need in order to have a memorable stay. The rooms are clean and adequate size. Location is great walking distance to everything. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Sicily. Lots of sweet and savory options. I wish we could have stayed longer and hope one day to return. If you are looking for a great hotel in Syracuse this is the place to stay.

What else is there to say that hasn't already been said in the previous reviews??? it's simply "My home in Ortigya"! We stayed (only 3 days, alas!--could happily have stayed there 6 months!!) in the room with the private balcony overlooking the harbour and enjoyed every minute. Delicious breakfast (especially the mini-cannoli), truly helpful staff (including very useful "tips" for getting best-value seats for the Greek drama performances, etc.at the Greek Theatre), and so forth.

The location of Henry's House, almost at the tip of Ortigya is perfect, ambience thoroughly charming, bed comfy, breakfast delicious, staff wonderful---it was great!

Room Tip: The room with the private balcony is well worth having!
