We just stayed one night, for a very good rate. Maybe this is why we've been allocated a smaller room, which was okay. BUT the smell from the bathroom was unbearable. Thankfully we didn't spend much time in the room, and didn't have time to complain and deal with the situation. We just closed the bathroom door and somehow handled the smell. but if you get this particular room and plan to stay there longer, definitely ask for a swap.

I changed from room 7 as I found the bathroom poor. There was no plug in the basin, the shower had black mould on the tiles and it was cramped. Also noisy as by the door into that set of rooms. The staff were fine when I asked to change, the second room had a better layout but bathroom still not pristine. There is work going on in the downstairs rooms so maybe these other areas will be addressed.

Although I had high expectations based on reviews, the Piccolo Hotel Casa Mia sufficed, but did not excel, during our August visit. The location is great for exploring Syracusa on foot. It is approximately equidistant from the Ortigia Island and the Archeological Park. The hotel offers two free reserved parking spaces, but they were never available when we visited. Fortunately, free public street parking is available nearby. Our room was just OK. It was on the ground floor and our window opened into a tall window well. We could see light, but not much more. It was quite small and simply decorated with exposed areas, presumably to show the age of the building. In my opinion, it looked like the wall had deteriorated and the paint and plaster fell off. The bathroom did not function well. Hot water took forever to arrive and had little pressure when it did. The public area on the first floor was nicely decorated in the style of beautiful villas. Breakfast was served in this attractive area with seating here and on an outside pathway. Breakfast was good with a reasonable selection of food, but we found ants enjoying the apple cake on the buffet table. I can honestly say that this was our least-favorite hotel out of four weeks in Italy.

This is a larger B&B. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is OK, except the coffee, which is not too good. But that's not only in this B&B or hotel. The island of Ortigia, with it's many monuments, shops, restaurants etc. is within 5 minutes walking distance. In the opposite direction you can walk to the bus or train station also in 5-10 minutes. All in all it's a nice place to explore the surrounding south-east of Sicily.

Hotel Piccolo Casa Mia is nice and stilish. The staff were very, very helpfull. We forgot an expensive camera in the Catania -Siracusa Interbus and they tried to help us to find it. Unfortunatelly,it was impossible. But the problem is Siracusa. This city has a great historical resonance. Now, Siracusa is dusty, and the management of the turistic objectiv are incomprehensible. Is it possible to close at 6 p.m.,in the summer time, the Greek Theatre and the archeological sit, and The Dionissos' Ear?? But Ortigia is one of the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

The general experience is great. Nice house, nice furniture, nice people, nice terraces (where we could stay in the evening and drink some grappa or prosecco that we bought from the supermarket). Situated in the middle of Siracusa, allowing us to get anywhere in the city in max. 30 minutes. ON FOOT! Now the slightly unpleasant details: very spartan breakfast (yet tasty - orange jam and oven hot buns + home made cakes + fresh squeezed red oranges juice) and very small parking lot (only 2 places - and I must stress that parking is a problem in Siracusa). However, staying in Siracusa and staying in Casa Mia was a great experience. Just as was making trips to Etna, Taormina, Noto or Ragusa. I congratulate myself for the choices we made for this holiday.

Casa Mia is a very nice and authentic hotel located in the main street of Syracuse, great location to reach the most interesting places of the city. The hotel is managed by very helpful people, with good knowledge of English. The environment is very open to all kind of people although the most predominant are young people The best asset of the B&B is the place itself. It is located in an ancient palace. The rooms are very nice with lots of details, the same with the rooms and the other common rooms. Also, it is very nice the possibility of having your breakfast in one of the big balconies surrounding the place

the location is perfect and the room is far more than a 2 stars: big, beautyful, big bathroom too. you can have breakfast outside in a sort of terrasse: breakfast is not very rich (no salty food) but there are home made cakes which are very nice! very positive feed back, only one problem and a warning: 1. the "parking" is not a real parking: it is just 2 parking places in the street out of the hotel! so the indication in the site brings confusion. then you have to be lucky and get one of the 2 available places, otherwise you will have to pay the parking place. 2. there's practically no sign out of the hotel, so when you try to find it just pay attention to the numbers. all in all I do recommend it, just be aware of what written above and you'll anjoy a great stay!

The hotel was near (in walking distance) everything we wanted to see, both Ortygia and the arceological sites. We did not have much difficulty finding a parking place nearby. Even though it was on the mainstreet, the place was quiet with a very nice cool courtyard to sit in after the sightseeing. The room was specious and clean. Some difficulties with the shower: water temerature and some flooding. The breakfast was excellent with nice fresh rolls and delicate marmelade and cakes. But some scheese or ham instead of all the sweet stuff would have been nice. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Fint, nytt rom med vindu mot bakgård. Hotellet er under oppussing, vårt rom var vakkert restaurert. Men dette inneber bråk om dagen på hverdager. Hotellet befinner seg i ulike deler av bygningen, dette skal kanskje ordnes i løpet av restaureringen. God plassering, i hovudgata i det "nye" sentrum. 5-10 minutt å gå over til Ortigia-halvøya.

Casa Mia was very homey -- everyone was very nice and made us feel right at home. Loved the location - very convenient to the bridges to Ortigia. The only concern was that the exterior of the building is currently (5/09) undergoing a rennovation, which made certain common areas very noisy...particularly the breakfast area. However, I would definitely recommend Casa Mia as a perfect choice to stay.

Un avis partagé: il faut savoir pourquoi l'on vient. L'hôtel est central et pittoresque. Le petit déjeuner est excellent (avec des produits faits maison). L'acceuil sympathique. Cependant, les chambres laissent à désirer. La limite entre la trace pittoresque d'un passé révolu et le laissez-aller n'est pas toujours évidente. La salle de bain vieillote mériterait d'être rafraîchie. Au final, le rapport qualité-prix comparé aux autres hôtels que nous avons fréqentés au cours de notre séjour nous est apparu assez faible.

This B&B was great. Within walking distance of railway station although a little awkward to find as there were some roadworks going on and the map was not clear. The hotel does not have large advertising outside, just a door. The address is correct so go by that. Once inside, is is a couple of flights of stairs up. The staff is really good. They have good English. Big bonus was a laundromat a couple of blocks away in the same street heading towards the island. You are within easy walking distance of the island. You must try the pizzas in front of the cathedral. One of these restaurants (can't remember which one - sorry - I think it was the first one on the right as you approach the cathedral) has fantastic pizzas. The best in Sicily. The rest are nothing special. Our room seemed to collect water on the floor in the bathroom as you have a shower so be careful. Have a coffee/tea break on the central patio. Staff are happy to assist. Be early for breakfast.

Excellent situation, less than 5 minutes walking to Ortigia. Shops and restaurants near to the hotel, easy to park there. The building is and old house that has been adapted to a hotel, with high ceilings, and large commun rooms. Decoration or the house is very nice.The only problem was that workers started to work early in the morning, since a inner small square is being improved. Although entrance of the building is a bit dissapointing, once yo get into de real hotel, the change is shocking. Breakfast fantastic, and is possible to have it (I was in early september) in a tables outdoor.

Casa Mia is a beautiful place and we did have a pleasant stay - but there were works going on on the main streets which sandwiched Casa Mia, so there was a LOT of noise. We felt that we should have been told when we booked or at least given a reduced rate. The family were lovely though and the rooms were very comfortable. Also, the area situated was amazing.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and on the whole found it a pleasant experience. The B&B is in a great location, around 7 minutes walk to the beautiful Ortygia, and around 15 minutes walk to the archeological site and museum. It's a nicely presented place, with plenty of character. Our room was spacious and clean, although the bathroom was a little on the small side. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room, and largely consisted of a range of sweet pastries. However, our experience of Casa Mia was considerably marred by the fact that there was building work going on literally right outside our bedroom window. This meant that we were woken up at 7.15am by the sound of hammering, drilling and builders shouting, which did NOT make for a particularly relaxing stay. There was scaffolding right in front of our window, meaning that we had to keep the shutters closed to avoid the builders who were walking past being able to see into our room. On one morning, we also had the electricity to our room cut off for several hours, which was particularly inconvenient as it was first thing in the morning. What was most disappointing was the fact that the owners did not appear to have considered the comfort of the guests in all of this - we were not made aware of the building work at the time of booking, and of course when we discovered it on arriving at Casa Mia, it was too late to cancel without having to pay the full fee for our stay. Whether or not this was deliberate on behalf of the owners, it seemed to us that it would have been sensible to either warn guests in advance, or schedule the building work to occur during rather more sociable hours (eg. from 9am). All in all, we enjoyed the good location and atmosphere of Casa Mia, but found the disturbance caused by the building work rather unpleasant, and also felt that it represented a somewhat worrying lack of concern by the owners for the experience of the guests.

Hotel was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was Ok but mainly sweet rather than savoury items available. We had a room overlooking the street which was very noisy overnight - there are other rooms which are probably quieter. Location was good but parking was limited. Would look for somewhere quieter next time.

While the double room was spacious but noisy, the single room in the roof had a bed that was rather narrow and seemed to be geared more towards children, and there were problems in it with the water, both in terms of supply and heat. Breakfasts were delicious, but we would have appreciated fresh fruit or yogurt rather than so much cake.

well located, close to the bus staion and walking distance to Ortygia. We took the bus to the ruins. Family run and very friendly people. There is construction work on the building and the street but did not interfere with our stay. A little gem. don't be put off by the door way

This is a great location, especially for visiting Ortygia. Nice breakfast. Be aware that there is no one at the desk over night. Be sure your keys work. A couple with young children could not get into the area where there room was as the key did not work and there was no one to let them in as it was after 9pm. Fortunately, other guests heard the commotion and finally let them in to the area where their room was. Limited parking if you have a car. We were able to park right in front of the building

Las habitaciones eran confortables y amplias pero tuvimos un inconveniente bastante desagradable al llegar. Nos dieron un juego de llaves que no funcionaba!!! Cuando volvimos de cenar a las 10 de la noche, no podíamos entrar al apartamento y no había un nº de teléfono para llamar en caso de problemas!!! Estábamos afuera con 3 niños de 11, 9, y 5 años!!!! Nos salvó una pareja que llegó media hora más tarde y que se alojaba en el mismo apartamento (sus llaves funconaban).

The whole hotel was much run down from the previous reviews of 2005. We had 2 connected rooms for 3 persons with one very weak air-con unit which was not even sufficient for one room. The toilet mechanism had to be flushed several times to work. The breakfast served only sweets - cakes and jam and bread. Instead of telling us they did not serve cappuccino when we asked for it, they gave us a coffee pot of latte coffee. The place was also under renovation and really was not in a fit state to be functioning as a hotel. The place is so much more run down now than the photo gallery shows. Internet can only be used at the office after breakfast which is not at all convenient if you have a queue of guests and want to start your day or are checking out after breakfast.

I very much enjoyed my three night stay in late June. I loved the museum at Siracusa (even though section C was closed) and Ortygia is a wonderfully beautiful place. The staff at Casa Mia were great at creating a helpful and welcoming environment. Thanks to all for a memorable stay.

This is a very reasonably priced place to stay. It is located on the 3rd floor of a building on the main street in Siracusa. The breakfast and the area it is served in is wonderful. The daughter is very helpful and informative. They do only take cash and the other staff person was less than helpful. The bathroom shower really needs an upgrade and they could cover over the ancient tile floors in the rooms. The room was charming and quiet on the back side of the building. You can easily walk from the train station to the hotel. No elevator so need to carry bags up 2 flights of stairs. If I had to do it over I would have stayed in Noto rather than Siracusa which really could be seen in a couple hours. Lots of trafic and confusing streets after we picked up our car.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Mia. The property is run by a charming multilingual family who live in a sumptuous apartment facing the street. The excellent buffet breakfast is served in their home and taken on the terrace at the back. Guest rooms are in a separate apartment looking onto another street at the back. Furnishings etc are old fashioned but perfectly suitable for people like us. Guests are mainly middle aged English and French. Good place to stay, near station and within easy walk of historic sites.

Very good stay on the whole. Excellent warm and friendly welcome, from both mother and daughter. Superb breakfast with pastry and home-made marmalade. Breakfast is served on a small open-air terrace with very nice decoration. All of this makes it a very pleasant family place within easy walking distance from Ortygia.

Second floor walk up location right in the heart of the city. friendly staff and very accomodating. breakfast was a buffet served in an open air courtyard.Th room was very clean and the bathroom was very large as well. The only drawbacks were the location is difficult to reach by car because of all the one way streets and the hotel does not have a large sign posted outside but rather a small placard standing by the door on the sidewalk. We found entertainment and nightlife a short walk in any direction from the hotel.

Small family run B&B. Friendly, good value, close to everything. Breakfast was also good. Only problem was our ground floor room was damp, tho this was unlikely to be a problem with the other rooms, which were all upstairs.

My daughter and I felt very comfortable in this charming bed and breakfast. The patio area was converted to an al fresco dining room, and the food was good, served on high quality dishes. The owners went out of their way to assist us with our transportation needs and directions to the sights and to the local laundry facility.

A very nice B&B with helpful manager/owners. Our room, while not spacious, was very nicely done, spotless and fairly quiet. While the parking was on the street there were enough places to park. The only drawback was a lack of an elevator. However, the owner helped us with our luggage. The breakfast was excellent and served from the owners dining room and a terrace was available for eating. I would stay there again.

This is a beautiful hotel, run by a family who are gracious, helpful and - rightfully - proud of their home which they have transformed into a business. They provide a very pleasant, regional breakfast, which may be consumed inside or out. The location is excellent, handy for coach routes, close to the railway station and a short walk to Ortygia. Siracusa is a lovely city with very hospitable and warm people, patient with tourists, and prepared to let you try to speak Italian to them. We look forward to returning in the very near future
