Set between the old town (an easy 5 minute walk) and the Archaeological Park and main amenities this hotel was quiet and comfortable. The old building was lovely with a great feel to it and the breakfast was excellent and in a beautiful room. The hotel decoration and the bathroom were a bit tired but everything worked fine. Staff were...

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Grand Albergo Alfeo. The staff were lovely and helpful. When I had a complaint about a room (it was smelly), they apologized and made sure that I had a perfect room for the rest of my stay. I would definitely stay at this hotel when I return to Syracuse!

We stayed here as a couple for a week on half board, having travelled many times to the Italian Mainland. The Hotel itself is well located for all the sights of the City and old town of Ortigia, and lets be honest here, out of season, unless you are an Archaeology buff there really isn't much to see or do,...

I had only one day to stay at Syracuse. This hotel along with this beautiful city was worth it to stay more... Helpful staff huge room for just the two of us and clean. Big breakfast and a nice small indoor courtyard. If you rent a car maker sure you find a parking.

The Grande is a gracious late nineteenth century hotel fully renovated a decade ago. The restoration retained all of the Grande's charm and added modern features. We had a large, comfortable room and could not have asked for more. My wife noted that it was exceptionally clean and all the linen appeared to be new. The staff was conscientious and...

Hotel on corner of Via Nino Bixio and Via Malta, makes it an good location for walking to Ortigia island, or into the center of Siracuse, or the archaeological park. Comfortable and clean, large, high-ceiling bedroom with balcony. Free wi-fi available for hotel guests. Bathroom rather disappointing - underlying malodour, presumably from drainage system. Comfortable and relaxing hotel lounge bar...

Great location, just a short walk to old town. Close to shopping and ancient sites. The bedrooms were very large with plenty of space for our 3 person room. The rooms were nicely updated. Great breakfast very day.

We stayed 2 nights. The rooms are large and confortable. The hotel is located at 10 minutes walk from the historic center. The breakfast is ok. The biggest issue we had was the very poor quality of the wifi. The wifi works fine in the lobby but the signal is the room is very bad, cutting all the time. Impossible...
