As we were backpacking around Sicily we were looking for affordable accommodation. This fitted the bill perfectly.
The location was excellent. It is just a few minutes walk from Ortygia (which is beautiful and peaceful) and about 15 minutes walk from the catacombs and Archaeological Zone.
The hotel is clean, the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast was the best we had in our two weeks in Sicily.
We had to leave early the last day to catch a bus and we received an email from the hotel to apologise that we didn't get breakfast. How nice is that?
