The owners of Hotel Teocrito have spent time in the US and offer a combination of some of the best features of Italian and North American hospitality. Lucia, Guiseppe and his wife are friendly, courteous and efficient. The hotel is well-maintained, room fittings are designed for effectiveness as much as appearance with enough shelf and closet space in bedroom and bathroom, a shower that gave out plenty of hot water and kept it inside the sliding doors. Breakfast was one of the better ones we’ve had in Italy. Guiseppe makes a mean cappuccino. The hotel is close by the archeological sites and museum and there is a fine supermarket just five minutes away. The advertised 20 minutes walking time to Ortigia is a touch optimistic. I’d say half an hour by the time you’re across the bridge and into the main streets. Note that Googlemaps currently misplaces Hotel Teocrito – right street but wrong side and too far west by about 300 metres, a bit of an issue if you arrive after dark. Guiseppe is onto this but we know from experience that getting Googlemaps to fix things isn’t a breeze. One other glitch we discovered isn’t the hotel’s fault but will concern those looking to use Siracusa as a base for area exploration. Noto is a convenient day’s outing but Ragusa isn’t. You can get there no problem but neither bus nor train offer convenient returns. You either have to turn around within the hour or face getting back to your hotel at 8 or 9 in the evening. As a base for Siracusa itself, we would definitely recommend this hotel.

Entrance shared with others in buildingand somewhat drab and off-putting, but hotel itself impeccable. Handy for Archaeological Museum and excellent Archaelogical Park but less so for Ortygia. Buses for Catania, and beach leave from short distance away. Hard to get info. re local buses.

The staff was absolutely wonderful in helping us resolve a very difficult situation. The entrance, as mentioned by other travelers, is simply the front door to a four-story building next to a bar. But the hotel itself is perfectly normal and worth overcoming the initial hesitance that the entrance gives. The location is as convenient as you can get to the archeological site and museum.

Hotel Teocrito is relatively well located, 5 minutes from the archeological park and 15-20 minutes from Ortygia (historical center). If you arrive during rush hours, parking may be an issue because the hotel does not have a private parking lot and finding a parking place in nearby streets may be difficult. Finding a parking place nearby in non-rush hours does not present a problem. Hotel is located on the first floor. You enter the building through a door that seems to give to an apartment complex and then climb the stairs or take the old elevator to the hotel. The excellent service and room quality makes one quickly forget the bad impressions given by the potential parking place issue and strange entrance to the hotel. Actually, the furniture makes the room look like it belongs to a hotel of a higher class. Bed is comfortable, bathroom is functional and pretty spacious, room is surprisingly silent as compared to other hotels in Sicily. Personnel is very knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast is good but there aren’t enough tables to accommodate all the guests if too many want breakfast at the same time. On our second day we had to wait our turn to eat. Despite the minuses, we had a very good experience at Hotel Teocrito and would return without hesitation.

My partner and I have just returned from a short break at Hotel Teocrito. Although the entrance, being on the first floor was unusual, it did not detrimentally affect the ambience of the accommodation. The hotel itself was very conveniently situated, being close to supermarkets, the Archeological park and the museum. Syracuse railway station and the island of Ortygia were 20 to 30 mins walk away. Ortygia was very charming with many eating establishments. The hotel staff were always polite, helpful and friendly and the rooms were pleasant, clean and tidy.

When we were looking for it, we said "I hope it's not that building" as we waited half a day to cross a busy street. However, once inside, it came as a bit of a surprise - kind of like at oasis in the middle of an apartment block! The reception was very friendly, the room as expected; tv, safe, good strong shower, comfortable bed, and most importantly the windows were quite well soundproofed. Breakfast was adequate, coffee good, what more could you ask for?!

Teocrito was a very welcoming hotel with friendly, helpful staff and bright, clean accommodation. We were provided with maps and important sights and places to eat were marked out by the desk staff. Special dietary needs were catered for. The archeolgical museum is just across the road, and the archeological park a short walk away. An ideal hotel for a city break in Siracusa.

Albergo ubicato in un condominio. Entra sicuro nell'androne del palazzo, soprassiedi al suo squallore ed all'odore di fritto di calamari e gamberi (surgelati) che, quasi costantemente si apprezza, e vai al primo piano. Verrai accolto con molto garbo dal personale che si prodigherà per accogliere le tue richieste. Le camere sono spaziose, confortevoli e ben arredate. L'albergo è di fronte al museo archeologico P. Orsi e vicinissimo all'area archeologica. Lo consiglio sicuramente a chi vorrà visitare la città

This is a hidden gem in Siracusa. It is a 15 min. walk from the historic center, but the price and quality of the hotel make up for a short walk. The hotel has been recently redone and is very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the staff went out of their way to assist. There is free wi-fi in the lobby which is very convenient. We will stay there whenever we have the chance.
