Old hotel past its prime
Location is great - you turn the corner uphill and beautiful piazza and great dining options are steps away.
This hotel isn't deserving of it's five star status. Yes, it has great bones and it has a wonderful location but it needs updating - while renovations can be costly - takes basic maintenance and pride for 5 stars to have clean walls in the room and Clorox for the mildew in the bathroom. Staff was nice but poorly trained.
outstanding location on the sea and view. Rooftop restaurant. Spa.
no parking and using the street is almost impossible.The Hotel is immense and was very empty and dull; personnel was demotivated (end of season); building needs anyhow renovation. The room was about OK, but the bathroom was far below standards (no tub, old fashioned, leaks everywhere,etc...). However, low season rate is, in globo, competitive.In summary:nicely decadent.
location of hotel is excellent.Staff very helpful and frienly.Lounge bar could do with upgrade,very stuffy.
Rooftop bar. Only had one drink. No buzz or atmosphere.
friendly staff and spoke good English which i expect from a 5star.
i was dissappointed that when i requested a room with a bath and told it might be possible that it never happened and nobody spoke to me about it again.i also hoped after expressing dissappointment with the lift out of use that it might be possible to move to another part of the hotel where lift worked. i had a small child aged 3 and i felt we were not fully understood and having to take a service lift was no fun.overall it was a good experience. we hope to visit scilly next october again.
Nothing like a 5 star hotel at best an average 4 star
Great location. The island is great!
The parking is terrible. There is no shuttle as indicated. It is at least a mile walk. Once you find the parking lot there are spaces that are for handicapped but are very poorly marked. Unfortunatdly we parked in one of them and received a parking ticket. Including this cost and the hotel cost made the cost of the hotel very expensive. The procing at this hotel is a bit of a bait and switch. At check in the staff tries to talk the traveller into an upgrade. And for good reason. The standard room is more like a jail cell than a hotel room. So we upgraded for 20 more euros. Alse the elevators are scarey. Very noisy and unstable. My wife used the stairs instead.
Excellent location and quiet - the first hotel in Sicily to achieve this. Plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants nearby. Bit of a trek to breakfast from our room but well worth it - both for the buffet and the outstanding views while enjoying it.
Excellent 5 star hotel - one of the best hotels of our Sicily trip. Junior suites are spacious and finished to a very high standard. Cleaning comes twice a day and small details/gestures (fresh cakes and fruits in the room, ...) make this hotel a true gem. Breakfast is very good with something for everyone (not just the sweets that make up a local breakfast) and it is served on a gorgeous rooftop resaturant/terrace. As a city, Siracusa is very pleasant and worth a long stay. I found it more interesting and less crowded than Taormina and also more affordable.
lose to centre , fantastic view ,
The central location in the old town The balcony with seaview
The beautiful view over the bay
Very late service by chambermaid to make-up the room
