Siracusa hotels and B&Bs

Over the last few years, Siracusa has become a modish and popular place to stay, with an explosion of chic B&Bs and updated hotels. There’s a good choice for the visitor here, and you can find better accommodation at a cheaper price than is normally possible in Italy.

The historic centre on the island of Ortigia is composed of tightly-packed buildings and narrow lanes, with traffic restrictions. If you require a hotel with convenient parking, this may not be the best place to stay. Whatever location you are considering, read past guests’ comments about parking facilities, and contact your hotel in advance for directions or to reserve a space. There is a cheap public car park at the northern corner of Ortigia which may be your best option.

Ortigia is an atmospheric place to stay, and if you want historical character right outside the front door, this is the best area for accommodation. Several of the hotels and B&Bs listed below look out onto the sea or fishing harbour (note that there aren’t beaches within the town centre, though). The drawback of staying on Ortigia, though, is that the railway station, the archaeological zone and the museum are all quite a long walk away.

Recommended accommodation

Aretusa Vacanze B&B

A very practical accommodation choice, Aretusa Vacanze offers bed and breakfast in studios and apartments with kitchenettes, giving guests the opportunity of a semi-independent stay. It has the option of two-bedroom apartments, making it very convenient for families or groups. I stayed there some years ago and was impressed by the friendly and helpful staff.

Grand Hotel Des Etrangers Hotel

An old-school five-star hotel on the waterfront on the island of Ortigia. The hotel has an attractive rooftop restaurant. Parking is some distance away. Some rooms are at the back of the hotel; it’s worth paying more for a sea view.

Il Duomo

B&B accommodation in the heart of Ortigia – it’s located on Piazza Duomo, so you couldn’t be more central for sightseeing and enjoying the historic centre.

Hotel Mercure Siracusa

A modern four-star hotel offering a brightness and efficiency rather than historic character. The hotel has a rooftop outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and sun-terrace. This is a practical and up-to-date place to stay, with convenient car parking and several rooms equipped for disabled guests. It’s close to the archaeological zone, but a fair walk from Ortigia.

Caportigia Boutique Hotel

Located between the railway station and the island of Ortigia, this popular hotel offers modern comfort along with a few historic details like exposed stonework. It’s around ten minutes’ walk to Ortigia. The shared roof terrace is an advantage – for some extra luxury, pick the deluxe room with its own private terrace and hot tub.
