The perfect hotel for seeing the lovely city of Siracusa. Central to everything. The parking was easy as they have a lot right across the street. Beautiful views of the harbor from the rooms. The rooms were large and clean. Wifi was good. You can't go wrong here.

This is a very nice upscale hotel located on the water front on the island of Ortega in Siracusa. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. The included breakfast is outstanding. If you ask they will cook eggs any way you wish.

Following a long day of travel, and a crawl off the autostrada to Ortigia, our dreams were answered by the elegant accommodations and helpful English speaking staff of the Grand Hotel Ortigia. I don't know if we have ever found a more walkable outpost than the historic island, or a situation so richly comfortable. Rooftop dining and morning buffet were...

Nice hotel with good service, right in the hart of Syracuse old town. Very good breakfast on an amazing terasse overlooking the ocean. Our room had 2 floors, a bit strange but it was good to have a separate living room on the bottom floor.

The hotel is located on the island of Ortigia, a beautiful spot with historic sights. The hotel is historic and keep in excellent condition throughout. The internal staircases reflect the luxurious ambience. There are great views from the roof top lounge and dining room. Breakfast selection is extensive. My room and bathroom, although tiny, felt luxurious and comfortable. I would...

We had a comfortable and functional room with two windows looking out over the harbor from the 3rd floor. The housekeeping was excellent, and we always had good turndown service. However, there was no bellman to greet us, so our driver brought in our bags. There is a lovely rooftop dining space, but we were disappointed there was no lunch...

The hotel has a beautiful reception area, lovely rooms, and a spectacular view of the harbor from the 3rd-floor restaurant. I ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, and the food was wonderful. I found the hotel employees friendly and helpful.

I stayed in this hotel 3 times in September and October 2016. It's equivalent to a 4 star hotel in Britain. I was in the Alfeo Suite the first visit which was lovely, overlooking the bay. The room was very large with two small sofas and a small table and two chairs. There were 2 fitted wardrobes with fitted drawers...

This hotel is in a grand old building that has been adapted to modern use. Rooms on the front have good views over the harbour, The staff are genuinely interested in guests' welfare and the breakfasts are varied and excellent. Location is excellent for exploring Ortigia.
