This is a great luxury hotel, perfectly placed in the beginning of ortigia. The service was stunning at reception but also afterwards as we lost a ring and when we called 3 days later they had found it and send it to us! Unique as was the friendlyness of the staff and a great Barman too. We also enjoyed the very spacious room with view on the harbour and see.

The pros : historical building very nicely renovated. Nice buffet selection for breakfast. Delicious cakes served as amenity in the room upon check in. Very helpful staff at Reception (Sylvia) and at Concierge desk (Concetta) going the extra mile to provide excellent recommendations. The cons : avoid duplex rooms as bed isolated upstairs can make you feel claustrophobic and isn’t practical with wardrobe and toilet being downstairs.

Dear Oliver, thank you for your recent stay at Ortea Palace, we are very delighted you had the chance to appreciate our property and the historical value of our building and even more that our team has welcome you as you deserved. We are sorry you didn't appreciate our unique duplex room that was built to take advantage of the high ceiling to let as much space as possible in the rest of the room. We can't wait to host you again in Ortigia! Regards Emanuele Guest Experience Team

This hotel is a nightmare to deal with. I booked a room for a two night stay in September 2020 before the Covid outbreak. On their website, they hail a long stay special. I thought that meant a better rate not a non refundable option. So, when I clicked confirm I was unwittingly tied in. They then closed the hotel for the year and didn’t have the courtesy to inform me. Another hotel in Noto in Sicily refunded me when I asked. This hotel has fought tooth and nail to keep my money despite them cancelling my reservation and closing their hotel. They have offered me a voucher which is effectively worthless. One simply can’t go all the way to Sicily at the drop of a hat.

My partner and I visited Ortea Luxury Palace in August 2019. We were reasonably happy with our stay. The check-in process was efficient, and our room was stylish and well-equipped (unlike the lobby, which felt sterile and tired). We were in a split level junior suite with a sea view, and on both levels the view was partially obscured by the massive parking lot directly in front of the hotel. I suspect this is the case for all rooms facing the sea, which is unfortunate, but it is not a deal breaker. The breakfast spread was adequate, but more plant-based options are needed. I was very unhappy about the additional charge to use the pool and sauna facilities – in a luxury hotel, these amenities should be provided as standard inclusions. No wonder they were deserted!

Palace luxury is such a grand name but when you start to look at details, something is amiss. Perhaps the name incites you to look for luxury. You could have luxury without being grand. Something perhaps with the interior design of the Palace. We spend the NYE here and very fortunate to experience the fireworks right in front of the balcony on the 3rd floor looking at the harbour. It felt cold. The receptionists were friendly and veterans with service and I applaud them during the first day of the year. Bright and cheerful. The design didn't quite work for me but the intention was there.
