As its title suggests, this hotel is very much in the style of the historical 'grand' hotels, with a decor and facilities to match. Clearly been upgraded and refurbished at various times. Pleasant location opposite Ortigia's marina and within walking distance of most of the town's tourist attractions. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Nice restaurant, located on the top floor...

The hotel is very weill located and the breakfasts are wonderful--wonderful cheeses, pastries, fruits and a great view. The room is a bit small for two. The staff is helpful. The hotel has lovely details from the end of the 19th century but has modernized with nice bathroom, elevator, wifi. etc.

My first holiday alone. Staff went out of their way to hep. A minor issue with getting a table for dinner on the Wednesday evening, was quickly resolved by the Restaurant Manager. They know the meaning of customer service.

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...
