Domus Mariae Review

On Ortygia's eastern shore, this hotel, in an unusual twist, is owned by Ursuline nuns, who help to make the mood placid and peaceful—but the elegant accommodations are far from monastic. Guest rooms are bright, modern, and comfortable; some have sea views (an extra €15), while the others have balconies overlooking the street. Refined furnishings distinguish the public rooms, and there's a chapel and library for guests. A pretty roof terrace takes advantage of the hotel's superb position.
