This is a really charming hotel, beautifully restored building in a delightful setting. The rooms are charmingly decorated with four poster beds, and painted beamed ceilings. It makes a lovely romantic setting to take your wife to as a romantic getaway. We had a sea view room over the beautiful bay of Ortigia. The breakfast is excellent with locally made... More

Stayed here a week with my wife January 11 to 18. Large, well-equipped room opening onto small roof-top balcony in a recently renovated palazzo. First-rate lighting, plumbing, elevators and heating. Attractive decor. Exceptional breakfast with fresh-squeezed orange juice, coffee and eggs made to order plus the usual fruit, bread and cereals. Six minutes walk down ancient cobbled streets to the... More

This hotel is brilliantly placed right in the Ortygia but on the quieter East side. We were two couples staying four nights.Our rooms were very comfortable and clean with excellent bathrooms - big showers with lots of hot water. The breakfasts were fantastic - some of the best we have had anywhere. There is a delightful facility offering tea, coffee,... More

If you go to Ortigia, try to stay at this lovely hotel. It's just a little back from the sea in a quiet part of town. Ask for a room facing the side street to be sure you don't get traffic noise (there wasn't much). Rooms are comfortable, wifi is free, staff are very obliging (I left my adaptor behind... More

Siracusa's old city is charming in its dilapidated way. The balconies tell the story. The Algila is just off the road along the ocean on the "wrong" side of this delicious little island (ie view on the - convenient - parking lot and the sea, not the side with hotels, restaurants and sites). The old house was renovated six years... More

In traveling to over 35 countries in my life... And being an active reviewer... This is my first negative review ever I believe. Our experience in this hotel was nothing short of terrible. We had high hopes from all the positive reviews... What a disappointment!!! Hotel: Not charming at all. Outdated and tacky. Rooms: Small, outdated and tacky. He had... More

We stayed for a couple of nights during our holiday in Sicily. Ortigia is an unbelievably romantic little gem and the hotel is facing the sea, stunning location. Service is excellent and breakfast very good. The building is stunning, the deco could be improved,

Having looked at the last few reviews for this brilliant hotel, I can't really think of anything to add except to confirm all the positive comments. The staff without exception are friendly and helpful, including with regard to the parking situation. In fact, we parked right outside the hotel for five days last month. We used the car for various... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, treating ourselves to the top floor room with terrace and sea views. The staff were really friendly, helpful and understanding when we arrived late due to flight problems. The breakfast was plentiful and varied, and the inclusive dinner we got at the Grand Hotel was very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
