A simple and lustrous gem in the heart of Ortigia. On the Levante seafront, it enjoys glorious sea views. The staff is friendly and we think it’s a great springboard for visiting this corner of the world.
The Hotel Gutkowski‘s owner,Paola, has excellent taste with an eye for detail resulting in this lighthearted powder blue hotel on Siracusa’s old town’s seafront. The décor is generally simple with some eclectic touches. The common areas feel very much like a homely living room complete with books and magazines. The rooftop terrace with a view of the sea is perfect for relaxing with a book, or soaking in the sun watching the boats go by at sea.
Although you will have many eateries to choose from in Siracusa, the Gutkowski houses a bistro that’s become the locals’ favourite because of its simple, tasty Sicilian food with a modern twist! Its Chef, Salvatore Storaci, creates the menu on a daily basis so you can choose from the blackboard. The breakfasts offer a luscious spread of seasonal fruits, homemade jams, fresh cheeses, freshly baked bread, rich olive oil and sun-ripe tomatoes.
This charming hotel spreads out in two nearby buildings. No room is entirely equal to another. All rooms are linear with superb simplicity and have been divided into three categories.
Basic Rooms are comfortable with plain and functional furniture. They are situated on the ground floor and have windows facing the inner courtyard or the charming alleys of Ortigia.
Classic and Plus Rooms are bright and airy. They are individually furnished creating a unique atmosphere and personality. Some have a balcony with sea views or of the picturesque town. Plus Rooms have been conceived to be particularly peaceful and relaxing with that little extra bed-size space and bathroom plus pleasing fabrics.
