Giuseppe is a wonderful host - we managed with our limited Italian and his limited English. The rooms are nicely furnished and the location is probably the best in Ortygia. It is definitely a B&B ie, you have your room and that's it. No common "hotel" space. Breakfast is in the outdoor cafe downstairs - basically a pastry and coffee of your choice.

Very friendly host who welcomed us with great recommendations for where to eat (and where not to eat!) and on best places to park car. Room was clean, spacious and had small balcony overlooking the piazza with fountain. Good location on Ortegia, we found free parking less than 10 minutes walk away outside the restricted driving zone. Included breakfast was a simple croissant/pastry and coffee from cafe below B&B. Recommended.

Itaca is a beautiful place to stay, and right in the heart of Ortigia. Giuseppe was kind and incredibly helpful. Our room looked out on the plaza - we loved it.

Hotel Itaca is wonderful! We stayed a paltry one night and I wish that we could have stayed for a week. Not only is Ortygia amazingly beautiful, but the hotel is itself is just fantastic. The bathroom is great, although the shower is just a tad small, but the views of the fountain are to die for. We parked on the Syracusa side of the bridge where there is free overnight parking and it is a pretty easy walk over to Ortigia and to Itaca. I hope we can go back some day! Don't hesitate to try the owner's restaurant, Sciano (I think it was called). We were not sure about it, but the food was great and our server was very nice.

Guiseppe is a very friendly and welcoming host, even though his english is limited. Itaca B&B is located directly on a piazza and it could be a little noisy at night from the cafes. Guiseppe didn't have a breakfast room but provided vouchers for the cafe downstairs. If you're driving, there is no parking at the property. The tourist carpark is about a 2 minute drive away and costs about 2 euro a day. Leave your car in the car park and catch the free shuttle back into the square or it's about a 10min fast walk. Itaca B&B was great, as was our host, and my only slightly negative comment is the breakfast from the cafe was pretty basic.

If you are thinking of a typical American Bed & Breakfast, this is not it. It is more like a very bare bones efficiency. We were supposed to get tickets for breakfast at a nearby cafe -- we didn't get them. The owner was not there upon arrival even though he had asked, and we told him, what our arrival time was. Luckily, someone else was nearby and could call him.

I can't really find a single thing that I could complain about! More than anything we booked the Itaca, as so many guests were happy with the owner's restaurant tips. And here are a few more fans!!! Giuseppe really made us feel exceptionally welcome, gave us hints and tips and really made our stay in Ortigia special. The room was very clean, spacious and modern. Mile grazie Giuseppe!

What lovely find in the middle of Ortigia. The room was large, clean and quiet. The owner met us, helped us get settled and gave good directions to park the car. You need to park about 5 minutes away, but there is a convenient shuttle right to the door. The breakfast was in the bar downstairs so it was limited to cafe and fresh baked pastries.

We stayed in the Itaca B&B 2 nights and I must say that it was absolutely fantastic. By far, our best accommodation during our 2-weeks trip to Sicily. Ideally located in Siracusa, the room was beautiful. The owner/manager welcomed us in a very friendly way and took time to explain us all the places to visit in Siracusa and recommend us very good restaurants. We will definitely be back in this B&B, which offers great value for the price.

The price is 20% higher compared to other similar b&b located in the same or in other cities. The breakfast is very poor (only cappucino and brioches)and it isn't offered in the B&B rooms but in the bar located in the public square. From our point of view the correct price for the supplied service should be around 70 EUR.

Upon arrival we had to wait approx 15 mins for the owner to come and meet us to let us in. Once checked in, he showed us the way to the rooms which were a 5 min walk away from the main building. These rooms were brand new and extremely nice and a great suprise and fantastic value. Unfortunately the toilet in one of the rooms was prone to not flushing and we had to call the owner twice. One of the rooms was massive with a huge sofa and both rooms had very comfortable beds. The other room was still a good size, especially for the 70 euro rate. Fantastic rooms!

Very nice place. In the old city, walking distance to anywhere on the island. Parking is actually a public pay parking lot at the entrance to the island, but easy walking an only one euro per day (city subsidized) and you pay per day, not per time you come and go. Breakfast (included) is at the cafe next door, nice that there is a large selection and coffee. The biggest downside is that due to a storm, we showed up a little late and our cell phone was dead. Since we were late, there was no one to check us in so we had to call from the cafe next door and the manager had to come let us in. It was a very nice, large, modern apartment over looking a fountain in the piazza, very nice.

The B&B and the service was simply fantastic. When we make our reservation online, we commented that this is our honeymoon trip. The owner actually gave us a surprise, and upgraded our room to a brand new suite! The suite was just lovely, simply indescribable. Romantic, spacious, clean, private, everything honeymooners can ask for. To complete it all, the owner has also made a dinner reservation at a nearby Osteria for us too. The food was delicious at a reasonable price. We just let the chef decide what to serve us. During our 2 weeks stay in Italy (where we travelled fr North to South), Itaca was definitely the best place we stayed. Thank you for making our trip such a memorable and romantic one. We will definitely be back!

Giuseppe, the proprietor was wonderful. He had many suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants that we followed. We had a meal of a lifetime due to his suggestion. The rooms were very nice and clean and the air conditioning worked silently and very well. The location on the island is the only one a visitor should consider. Everything was in walking distance (except the greek theater). Thank you Giuseppe! We hope to return soon.
