6/10 Good

Plusses and minuses
Our host was friendly and had some good tips but had an outdated map that was too small to read and forgot to tell us about holiday closures. Also, the bed was somewhat uncomfortable, and the AC not the best. Our balcony was nice to have but not the view the pictures indicated. We would've appreciated simple tips on how to get to Ortigia also.

Giovanni and Leonora provide a real family welcome and a chance to meet fellow guests at the breakfast table. Giovanni's talents as a photographer adorn the walls and the property is nicely placed between the old town and the antiquities whilst being handy for both bus and rail terminus. A terrific break.

Modern and functional, clean, and very personal service provided by Giovanni and his wife. Very nice breakfast, high performance WiFi, and a beautiful collection of photographs all over the B&B. Very attentive owners who are genuinely concerned about your comfortable stay. Both owners are qualified tour guides and can provide helpful tips to make your visit more enjoyable.

This is the place to stay in Siracusa, Sicily
Giovanni and Leonora are perfect hosts as they are patient and explain everything that has to do with their B&B. They are quite proud of their business and it shows in how they pay attention to their guests. The rooms are spacious, modern and very comfortable. Plus the location cannot be beat as you can literally visit all of the key tourist attractions on Ortigia and in Siracusa such as the Neaopolis Archaeological Park or the Paolo Orsi Museuem.

Great stay in Syracuse!
Our stay at Photoguest exceeded all of our expectations. The room was very clean, breakfast was delicious, and the hosts are wonderful people. They even tried to help track down some distant relatives of ours when we told them that we had family that originated in a neighboring town. The location is great for walking all over the city for sightseeing and dining. I would highly recommend staying here to experience Syracuse!

Excellent location with easy walking to Ortygia, the archeological park and restaurants. The room was very good and the owners provide a friendly breakfast and are very helpful. Public parking is available but not obvious so make prior arrangements with the hotel.

My partner and I were looking for an accommodation that would be reasonably priced, close to the historical sites in Siracusa and Ortigia and would provide a solution for parking a car. We were lucky enough that PhotoGuest House had an opening. The host and his wife were more than welcoming, helping us with every odd request that we had, providing an amazing breakfast and also great recommendations for what to do in the city. I would greatly recommend anyone who looks for a place to stay in Siracusa to go there
