Exceptional 10.0
Luxury in Otigia
Amazing hotel, luxurious in every way. Only downside was the concierge was useless and her recommendations for restaurants were "all the trattorias and osterias you will find in Otigia are great" and "the best seafood restaurant in town is our hotel's".

Very good 8.0
An imposing property with some issues to work out
The hotel is quite new, having opened in April (after about a 10-year renovation of the former Post Office) and, while stunning in many respects--some impressive and gorgeous public areas and fixtures, lovely sea views--still has some kinks to work out: there was no doorman or bellman in sight to help me up the stairs with my luggage on arrival, although I was warmly greeted once inside; the door to the room I was allocated would not open, and although they eventually did get it open with some added manpower, I could not do it myself; they asked me to wait while they worked on it, which Iw as loathe to do and asked for another room--they were going to leave me up there in the hallway while they sorted it out, which I did not find to be a good solution. They were kind enough to upgrade me to a junior suite duplex, which was lovely. The staff generally tried hard, although sometimes were not as helpful as I would have wished. The concierge, who was terrific, was unfortunately out for my first two days, with no substitute, and although one of the receptionists tried to help me on my arrival, when I asked about the fine arts museum, she had no clue, and the hotel had no maps of Ortygia on hand--I had to wait 20 minutes for a computer printout. Not what I would expect from a luxury hotel. Housekeeping was not very good about replacing toiletries, and I had to ask twice on one occasion. The corridors are uncarpeted and the one on my floor was narrow and felt overbright.
