Positives - Location - Breakfast - Dinner - pool - grandeur - car park for hire car Area for improvement - information - the reception staff are very helpful BUT only when asked.... More

We have just spent 7 nights here and we loved the hotel and all the staff. Very helpful reception staff and also dining room staff too. The majority of the hotel was really opulent ( the odd spot of renovation could be done - but nothing too major). Although the walk into Ortigia is about 20 mins there is the... More

I really wish I hadn't booked this hotel. Old, scarily appointed rooms with awful beds. A long way from Ortigia. A little like the shining but without the atmosphere. My boyfriend told me not to look at the view as he was afraid I might top myself. Awful

Stayed 2 nights here on an 8 night trip seek the last of the summer sun. Chose Grand Hotel Politi over staying in Ortigia because we wanted the pool. So glad we did, as it was lovely to come back for a swim and a sun lounger after a hot day touring. We were given an upgraded room with a... More

Excellente! Very nice and stylish hotel Staff attentive , helpfull and customer oriented. Dinner in restaurant was knoking high: local flavour embeded in fantastic taste by Chef Corrado Mazzara. Piccolo Ivan and waiter Sebastiano make the difference from very good to excellent.

everything about this place was lovely. The old-world feel was welcoming and the setting of the hotel was wonderful, overlooking caves. It had a character and charm mixed in with 5 star service and rooms. The breakfasts were amazing. Staff were helpful and friendly. We only booked this hotel upon arrival in Syracuse, so were delighted with our luck. The... More

Villa Politi was clearly once a very Grand Hotel and has the potential to be one again but currently it has gone beyond faded grandeur. The hotel is located conveniently near the archaeological sites and only a short drive from the centre of Ortygia. Parking on site is good. Staff are friendly and helpful and the food is OK but...

This hotel may not be quite as grand as it once was when Winston Churchill came here, but it is still able to take you back to that era and has plenty of grand features. The lobby, after you've gone past reception, is full of character. The grounds as well are very unusual as the hotel is built above caves... More
