It was our 1st stop on our 9 night tour of Sicily and after a painful hire car collection at Catania, we had just over an hours journey to Ortigia. The hotel (With Satnav and hotel emailed directions) were relatively easy to find and the hotel had parking directly outside. Check in process was pain free and the stand out... More

Dear Sarah, thank you for your kind review, we are glad you appreciated our services and the hotel itself. Everything seems to be perfect but, despite this, we did not deserve a perfect score. I'm sure there's a reason even if I can not guess it. I invite you to visit our site where, soon, there will be photos of... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel on 19-20 June. Our room was comfortable and cool. The hotel itself is quirky and interesting. Breakfast was very good. The hotel is ideally placed to explore Ortigia in a narrow lane close to the cathedral. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only downside was that the price was really quite high.... More

I stayed at Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel with my mother, husband and 4 year old daughter. The location of the hotel was excellent, very close to central part of Ortigia.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel. The service, the cleanliness and the room were just great. Breakfast is superb! This hotel is very recommendable and offers more than what you would expect.

Dear Markus, thank you for being our guest . We are always happy to note we have fully met expectations and, in this case, superseding them. The hotel offers a very wide range of possibilities and free services. From April 2015 we will be able to accommodate even larger rooms with terrace and jacuzzi: we will open, in fact, Palazzo...

Perfectly situated on Ortigia, this is a tastefully renovated hotel with all mod cons. The breakfast is particularly good by Sicilian standards and the staff friendly and helpful. Parking is an issue generally in Ortigia, but the staff will help you. Sat Nav works well to get you through the maze of streets.

This excellent hotel is really lovely, the rooms are beautifully decorated and beds extremely comfortable and very quiet. No sound from neighbouring rooms. Room 209 really has only a tiny wardrobe and no drawer space at all so that was a shame. Although it is advertised as having a sea view , that is beyond the general car park which... More

Regarding the parking, our property is not located within the pedestrian area and parking is available with different options, as we have repeatedly written on this site.

We stayed at the Alfeo apartments and were astonished at the room quality and superb sea view! I also can not say enough about the staff (Christine in particular) who were all unbelievably helpful! The apartments are separated from the main hotel which was unique for us. It did create a challenge of getting our car parked and baggage to... More

Such a stunning, well presented hotel, in the lovely area of Ortigia, right by the sea. Convenient parking close to the Hotel and within minutes walk to all restaurants and quaint streets and shops. From the moment we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted, the staff couldn't be nicer. Our bedroom smelt of a subtle luxurious scent as we walked through... More

The hotel has a nice location near the water in Ortygia, the old part of the town. They have converted several old buildings and turned them into a hotel. The common areas are nice although the room itself was a bit tired. The bed was very hard and neither the bed linens nor the towels were high quality. The bathroom... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel is located in an exquisite ancient building on the waterfront of Ortigia, the historic centre of Syracuse. Giving onto the ancient "Mastra Rua," where the Siracusan nobility resided from the 14th century, the hotel is a starting point for cultural itineraries. Its recent restoration maintains the original structure made of three buildings, contributing to its dynamic layout. Rooms are furnished differently with antique furniture, four-poster beds and refined interior decoration with distinctive Sicilian touches and Mediterranean features such as colorful bathrooms tiles. ... more   less
