The Giuggiulena Hotel, ranked as a bed and breakfast in the tourist literature, is a shelter carved into a cliff overlooking a bay off of the ocean on the east coast of Sicily, in the city of Siracusa. It is an almost self-contained environment, a serene and visually beautiful oasis, where you hear only the lapping of waves from the sea, as if you were on a secluded island in the middle of nowhere. The hotel is a little piece of heaven, a cocoon engraved inside a rock overlooking the ocean. Actually, it s on the other side of a bay, facing the historic part of the Siracusa, about a 15-minute walk away. Area information: the accommodation is centrally located in Siracusa overlooking the sea and one of the small marinas. It is a ten-minute walk to Ortigia, the historical centre of Siracusa, or alternatively there is a local bus and boat service. Local bars,restaurants and shops are all within close proximity. From the half of May classical greek tragedy shows take place in the greek theatre of Siracusa and Palazzolo Acreide. In the third week of May deck flowers in the main street in Noto. A tour with a boat around Ortigia island and a visit to sea cave.Many museum and archaeological sites are in the town and nearby Siracusa. And of course you can spend your spare time walking around the lovely Ortigia Island, which is the historical center town of Siracusa and now an Unesco Site.
The friendliness of all the staff but in particular Sabrina the owner. Very good spacious rooms . Excellent breakfast.
everthing! unequivacally. Hospitality, accomdations, service, food, cleanliness, location. everything.
Our hosts were wonderfully helpful and accommodating, even to the extent to taking me to the ER for an emergency. We loved the room and breakfast balconies overlooking the sea. Breakfast was also a feast. Just leave the car and walk int town. Besides, arguable the best restaurant in town is only a couple of hundred yards up the street!
We liked absolutely everything! Light nice room, balcony with a great sea view,fantastic sea. We went swimming many times! I can't find words to describe our feelings. It's a paradise for sure. During two weeks we were travelling around Sicily and it's the best place for sure. And our special thanks to Sabrina, everything was increadable.
Nothing, of course.
The room and the view.
