THE CHANGING DESIGN IN HOSPITALITY
Wondering for a perfect B&B in the centre of Ortigia?
Would you like to know what really made me hit that reservation button at this hotel in Siracusa? Those beautiful photos of the interiors that I have seen on the web. There was something new in those photos. I’m quite up to date about the hotel evolution and I know well that, whether it’s a 5-star resort or a smaller boutique hotel, hoteliers nowadays are continually striving hard to find that something new which will really makes them different from the others. There is indeed a merciless competition, whatever the purpose is, I mean business or leisure it is, people want to get the best from their hotel stay. Here comes this B&B in Ortigia, “Design 4 Rooms”, let me say that they have found their way.
We were driving from Portopalo di Capo Passero to Ortigia (the tourist centre of Siracusa) and our only concern was the parking. If you are planning your trip to Sicily, you have certainly read everywhere that parking is a big issue. Fortunately, at a point, Cristiano, the owner of our Hotel in Siracusa where we were up to, sent us a message about the TALETE garage. I could never expect to find such a comfortable car stall in Ortigia!!! Considering that we were in one of the important touristic centres of Sicily, the daily and weekly fees were even acceptable: € 10 per day and € 30 per week. Upon arrival at the Talete garage, we walked about 5 minutes to the B&B where Mr Paolo was waiting to welcome us. The hotel property was on the 3rd floor of the building, probably built in the early 1900s. It didn’t have a lift, I guess that is quite common in Ortigia. Mr Paolo kindly helped us with our luggage.
We were given a coupon for the breakfast at the Apollo bar but works are in progress to create this nook at home.
If we ever go back to Ortigia, this is certainly the place I will choose for us since it is one of the best hotels in Syracuse! Beside of the owners and the great location, B&B Design 4 Rooms was also characterized by a high-quality standard and an extremely satisfactory quality price index.
