The location is nice, parking is very easy and free of charge, the room we got was pretty big and looked quite nice, to start with the plusses. But it was also a bit smelly and worse: we quickly found out it was right next to a very busy street with traffic passing constantly. When we asked if there was another room available we were told there were only rooms without windows. And what difference does dense traffic make as we were only staying one night, the staff told us. It did make a difference as it was a saturday night and the traffic kept on going most of the night. Breakfast next morning was ok.

Nice hotel in a great locations. Handy restaurants in the area. Easy walk to the island. Room was large and clean but right beside the road so quite noisy during the night. Great parking as there is a large parking area right outside the hotel. There is a nice restaurant on top of the hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food tasty. It's nice to sit outside in the evening and see the water and have a drink before dinner. Would stay here again if we could get a quieter room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road.

Since parking in Sicily is difficult to find, this hotel, right on the waterfront, was a bonus with ample parking right in front of the hotel. We found the location was excellent since we could walk into Ortigia and although walking at night might seem sketchy, we didn't feel unsafe. The mattresses could have been better but the rooms were clean. The continental breakfast could have had more choices but the staff made us special coffees with no complaint while we waited out the rain. They even inquired about the wellbeing of my husband after I mentioned he was not feeling well. We did not eat dinner here but friends had an excellent meal. They have a large roof top terrace for dining, a seaside patio and an internal patio area for guests. I would recommend this hotel to people that aren't concerned about the contents of the mini bar.

The hotel is a real 3 stars, with services on the average and also installations. Breakfast poor. Family room spacious. Beds not so comfortable. Room bath on the average also. Position quite good, at 15 min walking of Ortigia. Parking available.

We came by chance to this hotel because it was easy to park here. We got a nice room. It wast clean and the aircondition got the heat down at once.This is a small hotel. Originally this house belonged to a fishing famlily. It is situated by the sea. The name Sparcadero means pulling the boats on shore. Its a little beach where children can swim and a mole where scililians bath and stroll.
All the rooms had different colors. The breakfast is italian standard (poor for a Norwegian). A restaurant is situated in the hotel serving mostly fish. The staff was very nice. I prefer hotels like this. Its more personel than big expensive hotels.
Our room had a bit of noice from the street, but it did not disturb us. The price was nice too.
