Excellent receptionists and waiters do their best to make guests happy. Very good food at restaurant. (The complementary sorbet is also a kind and pleasant gesture.) Nice interior, comfortable, huge rooms. Good location - 5 minutes walk from Ortigia.

Our third stop in our two week Sicilian tour and we loved this hotel. The rooms were great we had a very spacious matrimonial room and my daughters had a double which was a little smaller but still very good. Great location in walking distance to Ortigia a waterfront community with great restaurants.

In a building from the late 19th century, this hotel has high ceilings and spacious rooms. A recent complete refurbishment programme has brought it into the 21st century, without spoiling the calm and elegant atmosphere. A beautiful breakfast buffet, including a choice of hot dishes, is served in the impressive dining room. The staff are friendly and helpful, particularly Sergio... More

Hotel service is very friendly. The rooms are very large and nicely appointed. The only thing is that some are very noisy due to the traffic. Ask for a room higher up or away from the road. Location is a short walk from the Island of Ortiga so early to get about. Breakfast is a bit of a let down.... More

This is a four star modern hotel well located about a ten minute walk from Ortigia. The staff is professional. The breakfast buffet is a quality assortment. The room was clean, well appointed, everything worked... Nothing to complain about. We were lucky to find a parking place right in front of the hotel.

The breakfast room was amazing with a beautiful high ceiling and arch. The buffet breakfast was amazing with a lot to choose from. The hotel was very clean and the service was excellent. Ortigia is just 5 mins away over a lovely bridge and the train station is near should you want to visit Taormina etc. I felt we had... More

Overall I liked the hotel, even though there were problems that made my stay a bit uncomfortable. The shower ran hot, then burst with cold water. Repetitiously hot and cold. And the shower door would not close securely, allowing water to escape to the bathroom floor - slippery when wet. The toilet stands low and has a narrow rim which... More

Very impressive exterior and good location but rundown inside. Rooms were good sized but need renovation badly. Housekeeping was pathetic with cockroaches and mosquitoes. Staff was indifferent to complaints. Breakfast was very average. Wifi all over Italy is very flaky.

I had wanted to stay as close as possible to Ortigia but with a car, I needed to make sure there was available parking. Grande Albergo Alfeo was ideal - it was a 5 minute walk to Ortigia. The room was very nice - a comfortable large bed, high quality bathroom (and the best shower in any hotel I stayed... More
