This is a lovely place to spend a few nights in the beautiful part of Siracusa, Ortigia. The location is excellent, on the north east of the island, easily reachable by car, with easy parking nearby and yet at a short distance from all the attractions and restaurants of Ortigia. The hotel is housed in an old palazzo, beautifully and... More

We had a wonderful stay of 5 nights. Our room overlooked the sea - which was gorgeous. Breakfast was very good - and they have a special menu for you to choose from (eggs etc) in addition to a very nice buffet. We liked the location since it was situated halfway up the coast of the island. We walked everywhere-... More

We stayed at this hotel in May 2014. Before we opened the taxi door the hotel manager had arrived and insisted on carrying in both suitcases and the shoulder bag. After booking in we were shown to our room and the bags followed. Breakfasts were superb with a huge variety of food and really excellent coffee, all served by cheerful... More

If you are going to stay in Siracusa, stay in Ortigia; and if you do go then the Algilà is a great choice. A lovely couple of old palazzi renovated with good taste and with lovely staff. The restaurant was closed but breakfast (hot and cold) was plentiful and excellent. Nice touches like free soft drinks in the minibar. Our... More

This is a nice place and may be better being off-season . Breakfast great. My only problem was excessive heating in the room. There was no air. I had to sleep with window open . Special thanks to Marcello at reception who patiently helped me with my Italian and the lady in breakfast area who was very friendly
