I work for a hotel company so I am a bit picky when it comes to choosing a hotel. I was very happy with my choice of Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel. I love the location, the room was very comfortable, clean and the bathroom had the right amenities. You will not go wrong with this hotel, the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good with a variety of items! You can walk around Ortigia easily from the hotel, around the hotel there are wonderful places to eat as well. Excellent overall!

Room tip: Great rooms with Balconies

Algilà Charme Hotel is a true jewel for Ortigia. We left utterly satisfied by the accommodation, encompassing the beautiful room, the charming lobby and breakfast area, the quality and diversity of the breakfast ingredients, plus the professional and polite staff. This was a pleasant surprise for us, after visiting three more cities in Sicily. Among the hotel highlights we would include aesthetics, calmness and location. For an even higher result, the hotel could improve the shower accessories, which were a bit uncomfortable to use. The original Bulgari amenities have left a scent in our minds!

Dear Guest,
Thanks for kindling taking time to leave a review. We are extremely delighted to have received your feedback.
We are more than happy that you had a great stay in your suite. They are popular with guests from all over the world, as are the uniquely furnished rooms and hotel in general.
The location couldn't be more perfect - we agree! Directly opposite the magnificent Ionion Sea. The hotel suites also offer private hot tubs in some of the rooms with this sea view.
We are Sicilian and so food is important to us and we offer the best as part of our open breakfast buffet - very glad you enjoyed that, along with the first class staff who speak many languages but more importantly care about the guests and your stay.

We do update our rooms often and check them daily so are sad to hear that you had some difficulty in the shower. We will be looking into this to ascertain what can be improved. We do invite you to let us know next time by calling one of our front desk staff.


We look forward to your return soon

Best Wishes

The Staff at Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel

Photos do not do this very special hotel justice. We were lucky enough to book the family room and couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in. Two exceptionally spacious rooms with beautiful bathrooms, high ceilings, stocked refrigerators connected through a perfect hallway that allowed both for privacy and the comfort of togetherness for our younger kids. It was fabulous. The location is lovely in perfect Ortigia, which in and of itself is such a gem. The staff offered many great restaurant recommendations and could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast was excellent - you would be hard pressed to find a person who wasn't delighted by the myriad of offerings. The hotel also has a spacious seating area to relax with water, some juice and little bowls of snacks during the day, which made for a nice area to relax with our kids in the hot afternoons.

A couple of teeny tiny quibbles: the tvs were so small they were unusable (wouldn't care normally but we were there during the world cup and the ball was a mere pinprick) and had very few stations, the shower floor was so incredibly slippery that my son took a nasty spill (I almost did as well, so it wasn't kid horsing around) and the parking is more expensive than it should be. The air in one of the rooms ran very cold and refused to adjust, but in a 105 degree heatwave, that was certainly preferable to the alternative. One final quibble - they use some sort of a pod machine for the coffee, which in addition to being environmentally questionable when used on a large scale, it also makes pretty low grade coffee. We'd come to enjoy our morning freshly ground lattes elsewhere, so again, though a minor quibble, I think they should switch to a standard machine to step it up just a notch.

We would enthusiastically recommend this hotel to all. It's a real find.

Room tip: The family room is terrific.

We stayed at the Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel for three nights in June. We had a beautiful room in the newer portion of the hotel across the street. The room was of adequate size with an amazing bathroom and shower. We would love to have that shower at our home! We had a large balcony with a hot tub on the the roof of our room. It was a bit of a climb to the hot tub on the roof, so we kept the wine consumption to a moderate amount while climbing the steps. The view from above was gorgeous. Marcello had to carry our heavy bags(felt sorry for him) and always with a huge smile. The kindest staff ever!! The breakfasts were excellent, when we could get out of our comfortable bed in time. This is a beautiful island and the hotel was one we would come back to in a heartbeat. Grazie mille Marcello!!

This hotel fills two renovated buildings and they are beautiful, elegant and historic. We just arrived with our two daughters and I had to review so as to not miss a detail. We are in an adjoining room and we love the lay out. Our teenage girls have their own space and we have ours. The bathrooms are large and well appointed with Bulgari products. The rooms are furnished with period pieces which all are part of the story of this renovation and all with a modern flair. Everyone is so accommodating and lovely. The front desk arranged for a car today to take us to nearby Noto, Modica and Ragussa and the price was right. Way way better than taking a train or a bus which you could but in the end it all adds up and not personal. It's also in the mid 90's so air conditioned car and drop off is key. They also have arranged our airport transfer for a very reasonable fee. Over all we are super impressed and would not hesitate to return or recommend. Also this location is unbeatable for walking or going to the beach which the hotel is happy to provide whatever you need. We booked early and very glad we did, we are very happy with this hotel, it's a beautiful building, well done! As for views and all the other comments, ask and you shall receive. We're happy with our view of the rooftops, it's what I expect. It's all part of the charm and the once upon a time of this place.
The breakfast was way more than we needed, well done! And the cold refreshments provided in the minibar hit the spot after a long hot day of walking. This hotel has more complimentary details to offer than some of the 5 star high end small luxury hotels of the world chain. We are overly impressed and grateful to not be nickel and dimed. Superb!!!!
