About this Hotel

Price From $154

The hotel with the best combination of style and value in all of Sicily is on a coastal road in Siracusa's historic center of Ortigia.

Gutkowski's owner, Paola Pretsch, converted a pair of powder-blue houses overlooking the Mediterranean into a 25-room hotel. She decorated the properties along minimalist lines, enhanced by traditional touches, with mod furnishings near old stone doorways.

In the main building, the rooms with direct sea views are 3, 4, 8, 9, and 15—the last reached via a terrace. In the other structure up the road, the views are best from second-floor rooms 24–26. (From the first floor, only the sea horizon is visible above stone fortifications across the road.)

The scrumptious breakfast consists of homemade cakes and cookies, fruits and cheeses, organic marmalades and honey, and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Rate includes breakfast.
