The positives: the hotel is quite well situated. Its a short five to ten minute walk to Ortigia island which is the only part of Syracuse worth visiting. The rooms are surprisingly large and newly renovated. Breakfast is quite adequate and you can ask for good italian espresso . The negatives: the renovations were cheaply done. The one really aggravating... More

The location is great, although parking in the side streets is too difficult as there are many one way streets. We parked in the boat terminal, which was only a block away. It's a short walk to Ortigia, which was great and very convenient. Front desk staff were very helpful. We ate dinner at the restaurant, which was fairly average.... More

We arrived here mid-morning still getting used to the mad Sicilian driving. There is no hotel parking just at the side of the road and this is at a premium. Luckily we managed to get a space that was just being vacated but parking is not easy in Sicily! The hotel was cool and inviting and although we were early... More

Located only 200m away from the old town, this hotel was a perfect choice for our one night stay. The rooms were very comfortable, wi-fi signal good. We eat there also dinner - an delicious open buffet only for 8 euros per person.

Good location with short walk to Ortygia and some small shops/supermarket nearby.  The room was a decent size and clean with a large and comfortable bed, although the bathroom needed a little attention.  The shower is an open type and the constant wetting of the floor was causing damp on the door frame and walls.  There was a tv but...

After 3 weeks travelling around the Amalfi Coast and being ripped off left and right and paying for over priced substandard accommodation the Grande Albergo Alfeo came as a pleasant surprise. Well priced, comfortable, delicious breakfast choices and an easy walk into the old town. We mostly dined in the old town where there is plenty of choice, but did... More

Well located near the bridges that connect Ortygia with the rest of the city, this elegant hotel proved to be a good bet for our 2-night stay in Syracuse. Though parking space is a problem here, there are a couple of places reserved for loading and unloading your bags (30 minutes) after which you have the choice to make endless... More

We loved our stay at the Grande Albergo Alfeo. The hotel is located in a lovely, older building with modern rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable with nice duvet covers on the beds. The location is great -- away from hectic Ortygia but only about a ten minute walk right over the small bridge. The staff are very knowledgeable... More

Ideal location for everything, easy access to Ortygia and to bus and railway stations. Electric buses (free to 65+) just around the corner. Rooms were good size with ample storage, wonderful en-suite with great shower, and immaculately clean. All staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast offered an amazing choice and ask for your coffee to be made fresh. Evening meals... More

hotel is well located for Ortiglia and is quite grand inside in public area and out. but it needs some tender loving care in terms of service. Rooms are fine and quite spacious but water pressure was awful which they were trying to fix. we could see the sea from our balcony past the cranes of the dock. Breakfast was... More
