This hotel does not have a 4* feel or appearance. The reception areas are in need of refurbishment. Communal areas feel very dingy and depressing. The restaurant did not have an inviting appearance at all so we even skipped breakfast, preferring to go to one of the numerous little pasticcerias nearby. The room however was clean with lovely crisp white... More

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel, in Sicily I have found that finding a really good bed is a challenge and this one surpassed my expectations. The rooms are large, renovated and comfortable. Everything works, TV, Shower, Air Conditioning, refrigerator and the Wifi as well. It is a 5 minute walk from the old city Ortiga Island, but I... More

The hotel was almost perfect. Great location, very friendly and competent stuff. Breakfast was totally not Italian. A lot of vegetables, fresh fruits etc. The room where we stayed 302 had a nice small patio on the roof which was fantastic. The only thing what should be improved by the hotel is the smell in the room after arriving and... More

I choose this hotel because of its location, very close to Ortigia, but outside of the traffic jam of the Island. It is very nice: an old palace recently renovated, with a wonderful restaurant where an excellent breakfast is served. My room (a superior one) was very large, nice furnitures and a small balcony on the main road.

The Grande Albergo Alfeo is situated between the rail and bus stations in one direction, and the old town of Ortygia in the other, with both being 10-15 minutes' walk away. The advantage of NOT staying in Ortygia, by the way, is that you're outside the really touristy area, and you mix with real people and find real shops and... More

This hotel was convenient, easy and modern. The bathroom was great, particularly by Sicilian standards. The rooms are very sizeable with tall ceilings. The location is a perfect mid-way between Ortygia and the new-town. It is surrounded by cafés and small bars and a short walk to great restaurants. It is not an amazing hotel (and no parking) but certainly... More

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...
