“Great location; great hosts”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

As noted by other travelers, it can be hard to find this BnB at first. But we took a taxi from the bust station and called Carlo for navigating us. It has a great location, just few minutes of walk to Archimede piazza, a bit longer to Duomo. But everything is in a walking distance: you can get to Siracusa tourist sights in about 30 minutes by walk. The BnB is very cosy and looks like a small museum :) Rooms are spacious enough (I was cordially given a double room for single use). They are clean and you will find all basic facilities needed. Some fruits and soft drinks were also provided. Both Angelo and Carlo are very friendly and were very helpful with our transportation and eating places' requests. Great value for money and great place to enjoy beauties of Ortigya and Siracusa.

Lovely hosts full of good information on Ortigia - where to go,where to eat etc.

If you are driving, make sure you know where to park the car (cheaper at weekends but still expensive for a couple of days and the machine only accepts coins ) and make sure you have a map to find the B and B

perfectly placed in Ortigia for everywhere, good breakfast. Room was nice with good bathroom - windows pointing inwards so difficult to get a draught if its hot.

Inexpensive. Heartily recommend.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the more airy it will be.

We spent two nights at La Corte Degli Angeli in Ortigia, Syracuse this August. Overall I very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

Location- perfect, just couldn't be better. On a small street in the middle of the historical center of Syracuse. Be sure to ask for exact directions, and it could be difficult to find. With directions we had no problems.

Rooms- both the bedroom that we had and the rest of the house (dining room, living room, terrace) were prettily decorated. All the necessary amenities were there, including a hairdryer.

Breakfast- the best we had in Italy, including a large variety of pastries, jams, nutella, yogurts, great coffee/tea. Served in a lovely dining room, where we got to chat with other guests in the morning.

Hosts- we mostly dealt with Carlos, and he was very nice and accommodating. He provided us with all the information we requested, including recommendations on where to eat and what to see/do while in Syracuse. He definitely made us feel at home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the green room, and thought that it was perfectly comfortable, with a small hallway, ni...

If you choose to stay in Ortigia, this a good place for enjoying the old historical center.

The house style is baroque, in line with the surrounding architecture (so, if you like a simple, minimalist style, look for something else...).

Breakfast was excellent, with fresh pastries every morning.

My only complaint is that rooms are not sound-proof, and we were disturbed by some noise from other guests.

Beautiful palace, perfect location, but maybe I went there the wrong day, as I did not feel particularly welcome or comfortable. Our room was beautiful, but small and hard to ventilate, as the only window gives to a small inner court. The dining room was nice, but so full of stuff that it was difficult to move around. The living room looks nice in the pictures, but I don't think it is available for guests. Music playing at siesta time and in the morning. A kind of wake up call I do not really enjoy.

A fantastic bed and breakfast in Ortigia, well appointed with beautiful artwork and sculpture all within the confines of a stunning old residence with a private courtyard in the center and a terrace to relax on after a busy day of wandering Ortigia's lanes. Comfortable and cozy room with a mini-fridge and a typically cozy bathroom. Great breakfast.

The 2 owners, especially Carlos, are extremely kind, helpful (trust their dinner recommendations!) and do a great job of negotiating the ever-intricate world of guest-owner relations: they'll leave you in peace if you'd like but they'll be just as happy to have a great conversation, or give you kind-hearted pointers on your (horrible) Italian!

Just stay here and see, you'll be happy. A place very befitting of the gorgeous Siracusa.

Say hi to the gatto, Baggio, and the friendly terrace turtle for us.
