Great location, very good room and great breakfast
Located along the water at the entrance to the Ortigia island, this was a great location for visiting both the old area (Ortigia) and sites on the Siracusa "mainland". Our room was clean and comfortable, though a bit small, the view over the water was great, and breakfast buffet wonderful.

Great waterfront location
Nice waterfront location. Ortigia is ideal for a day trip. Castle is great. Parking is not easy. Some great restaurants all within walking distance. Serivice / reception was excellent and made some great restaurant recommendations. Breakfast on roof terrace was great. Bed very hard and shower overflowed but overall great location.

A no brainer to stay at, would definitely return
Location, service and cleanliness made this great value for money, and difficult for me to find faults other than a slightly uncomfortable mattress.

Ortgian Bargain
l’Approdo is a comfortable small hotel wonderfully located on the island of Ortigia. The rooms are simple, clean and small, but the hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of all of Ortgia’s shopping and historic sites. The rooftop breakfast deck provides a wonderful view of the canal and harbor, and the breakfast is the equal of others we have had at much more expensive hotels in Italy. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great apartment in the ultimate location!
We stayed at L'Approdo delle Sirene for two nights and had the best time. Its a great B&B in an amazing location. We had a small balcony on our room which was great, but the real winner is the roof terrace which is open all the time and adjacent to the breakfast room so that can be taken there too. All staff were very friendly and professional. If we do head back to the area I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. 5*

Friendly, clean hotel close to sights
What a lovely, hotel with a fabulous breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was extremely clean and thoughtfully laid out. One piece of feedback is the TV signal was a little weak - I think a booster may be required.
