We went to Siracusa with my mother on a little family get-away, and stayed at the Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel for 3 nights. It was the most delightful hotel I have stayed at in quite a while! The only minor issue was that our room had no view of outside, there was just a little courtyard balcony bit with some... More

Two historic buildings in Ortigia. Bus 1 from the Siracusa bus station stops right in front of the hotel. It is a charming building with very nicely appointed rooms. Very helpful and friendly staffs at the reception/breakfast. Breakfast was just fantastic. Excellent and safe location. Less than 5 mins walk to Cathedral and the restaurants (Ortigia is small). We took... More

A charming hotel in an historic building in Ortigia's centre. 4-5 mins from the cathedral square. It faces the sea on a small square, and at a point in the peninsula where it catches sea breezes, useful on a hot night. Some rooms have small balconies, not enough to sit on but atmospheric. We stayed in the 'new' section, an... More

I made reservations more than a month in advance of our two week trip to Sicily which included my son and his lady. As our trip evolved they decided it was too much for them to go on to Siracusa before returning to Seattle (more than 17 hours travel time). At this point changing our reservation meant significant loss of... More

Was at this hotel in April 2015. Our room was lovely in all respects except three. 1) The "safe" was the usual little box in the wardrobe with a four number digital combination. However, the box was not bolted to the shelf in the wardrobe and was small and very light so anyone could have just carried it away with... More

We booked a sea view room but the room was actually looking over a car garage with little view of the sea. Quite disappointed. But the room was spacious and comfortable. Great location with quick access to the Centro area. Parking was convenient which is a big plus for an old city. Breakfast was another disappointment though, mainly because of... More

눇We totally enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous hotel and highly recommend it to others. We would stay there again in a heart beat!! Our room was spacious, impeccably clean, beautiful and comfortable. The Sicilian tile in the bathroom was gorgeous. The hotel has a great location with easy access to major landmarks and just steps away from a lovely... More

Excellent Location, spacious and modern rooms, actual "Free WiFI" (in the room and no laborious login), delicious complimentary breakfast and the be best part- lovely and helpful staff! We only spent one night, but I wished we could have stayed longer. We were in the new building across the small street, the room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, handy complimentary...

This was our last hotel in a 14 day trip to Italy. It was by far the best, including other 5 star hotels. Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel combines the efficiency of a larger first class hotel with the charm and warmth of a smaller hotel. Our room was large with a sea view, spotless and a very comfortable king bed.... More

We stayed 3 nights in April at this well located and beautifully presented hotel with friends. We were told on arrival that rooms of the same price varied as it is an old hotel. That was a bonus for us as our room was spacious and comfortable. Our friends however had a much more cramped room. The staff were extremely... More
