Our bed & breakfast offers rooms with all comforts, inspired by astronomical themes. Salvo, the owner, is an astronomy-enthusiast and therefore he invented a "solar system style" for his B&B.
And if (among swimming and sightseeing tours) you'd like to have a look at the Moon... Salvo will be happy to point his telescopes for you !
The B&B Kosmos is located in Syracuse - Sicily, in a quiet residential area. The position of the Bed & Breakfast is ideal to reach in few minutes by car Ortygia, the historical centre of Syracuse, the archaeological park or the freeway direction Catania or Ragusa. At the same time, the suburban location, allows you to enjoy the peace of mind of a residential area.
The "Mars" room is a double room, 18 square meters big. The room is inspired by the planet Mars, therefore the main colours are red and black. A Mars poster decorates the wall behind the bed.
The room has also a 32" flat screen TV, an air conditioner and a heating plant. Free WiFi internet connection is available in the whole guesthouse.
The room has a private bathroom with sink, shower, wc and bidet and hairdryer. Bath towels are changed every day.
If you are interested in archaeology and arts it is possible to visit the archaelogical park of Syracuse, Ortigia and the ancient Eurialo castle.
The autostrada (highway) Catania-Siracusa-Gela is at only 6 Km distance, 10 minutes by car.
It is possible to drive to the south part of the island, to the Unesco world heritage sites of Noto, Pantalica, Modica, Scicli and Ragusa.
South from Syracuse there are also a lot of beautiful beaches like Fontane Bianche, lido di Noto and Calamosche in the Vendicari nature reserve.
Driving north it is possible to visit the mount Etna, Catania and Taormina.
We had an excellent rest by Salvo's. The place is nice and clean. Salvo is a great guy.
I advise you this place, you can't be disappointed!
Staying 5 days at Salvo's Kosmos B&B was a great experience! Salvo transferred his passion of astronomy into the original and smart decoration of his rooms (the passion-red Mars room, the quiet grey Moon room, and soon the Earth room which is still a surprise, obviously!). I was so enthusiast about the photos he put on the site that I did not pay attention to the fact that his B&B was not in Syracuse city center...! Since I had no car, it would have been a serious problem if Salvo did not spontaneously offered to ride me around with his car. So during those 5 days, he showed me the nice places and beaches around, we met his friends so I shared the real life of Syracuse! And Salvo's mother, who is absolutely as nice as fond of cooking, prepared the homemade morning cakes and specialities: I just let you imagine...!! Moreover, Salvo showed me the Sun, the Moon and Saturn with his telescope!
So I would of course warmly recommand Salvo's place: very clean (towels changed every day), abundant breakfast in the spacy yellow Sun-room, quiet of the garden...and unconditional kindness of Salvo and his parents. The only thing is that a car is really needed to stay at Salvo's, since the public transports are not easy in this area of the city. Thank you very much Salvo, my friend, for al those nice moments, really hope to see you again!
Salvo's place is very nice; the cakes made by his mom for breakfast were our favorite part! The room is large and very clean, and it is straightened and picked up every day. You will need a car to get to places from the B&B, since this Siracusa suburb is pretty isolated. We had a car, and found the location a good starting point for day trips. Be sure to take your map with you to find your way back! Salvo is always ready to help with suggestions and guides, and he was a fabulous host.
Salvio s bnb was an excellent address.We spent 2 nights at his home where everything was great, The rooms are decorated with lot s of taste, they are very clean with lot s of space and very quiet. The breakfast was excellent with home made sicilians cakes which his mother has cooked for us. We could even see Saturne by his telescope in the night a real great experience for us. We recommend highly this bnb it is more than a five stars hotel.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
