We had a very enjoyable stay here and found the hotel modern with very helpful staff and its location ideal, being just a short way outside of Ortigia. Excellent breakfasts and very clean and comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a very pleasant, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent, and the room was very nice, and clean. The location was central, and it was easy to walk to Ortygia and enjoy the beautiful Piazza and its architecture. Make sure you see the Caravaggio, too...

After having read some reviews, I was very apprehensive about this hotel, but it had been booked by our tour company. It was still undergoing renovations while we were there. My room looked brand new (and I checked the mattress for bugs and was relieved to find none). A piece of the flush apparatus of the toilet fell off in... More

For our first stay, we had an interior facing room - not a great view, but very quiet.Then we had an exterior facing room, better view a little less quiet.Loved the breakfast, the downstairs salon to sit and read, the handy location, and the price. no complaints except the receptionist over the weekend had no experience.

I did not quite like my stay at the Grande Albergo Alfeo. Especially it’s not a good trade off considering the tariffs they charged for rooms. I had driven in my car and the parking which they promised never existed. It was a thin narrow alley where one gets to park cars. And I wasn’t comfortable doing so. The location... More

We were there in December 2013 and stayed in 2 rooms for 4 nights. The rooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were well appointed. However, it was not possible to get coffee or anything else to eat or drink outside of breakfast despite there supposedly being a bar. It appeared as thought the hotel was running on a skeleton...

A sudden summer storm was adequate enough to flood the hotel. The staff didn't know what to do and they weren't helpful at all. Breakfast wasn't served, the elevators were stopped working and in general the whole situation was a chaotic. The room was nice and spacious and the location is very near to Ortigia.

By far, this was our least favorite hotel during our 2 week stay in Sicily. While the hotel has adequate furnishings and is a very good value, I would agree with others comments regarding a fair breakfast (No eggs or fruit) and rather unfriendly staff. We were bothered by mosquitos because it was warm and we had the windows opened.... More

This is our least favorite stay during our five weeks in Italy. The hotel, the room and the breakfast were all fine, but the lack of friendliness upon check-in really colored our overall impression of our stay in Sicily. We had requested parking months in advance when we booked our one night reservation and when we arrived the gentleman at... More
