Stayed for 3 nights as part of week-long 60th birthday break in Sicily. Very stylish hotel, with excellent service. Front desk charming and helpful. Roof top terrace for breakfast is just fabulous way to start the day. Views over the harbour/boats, sea and hills beyond - combined with very extensive high quality breakfast - makes for excellent start for the...

This hotel is in a lovely location in the very small island called ortigia but within walking distance to Syracuse and the lovely Greek buildings there. The hotel staff are very friendly and always happy to help. The reception is a cool marble room which is a help because of the heat of Sicily. Our room was wonderful with a...

The Grand Hotel is on the island of Ortigia, close to the bridges that join it to the mainland. That puts it within walking distance of all the major sights of Siracusa, and it has very pleasant views over the marina. The hotel was built in 1890, and seems to have been remodelled at least twice since then. Our room...

Hotel is situated right on the sea front with stunning views. Hotel staff are 2nd to none. I had a debilitating accident whilst there and they were fantastic, sorting everything out for me. Gianluco, Veronica and Desiree on reception were stars. Katiuschia and Aicha at breakfast were simply charming, helping me however they could. The evening restaurant is a real...

I stay in Grand Hotel Ortigia during weekend. I can recommend this fantastic hotel to everybody. Beautiful location close to the sea, rooms clean (thanks to cleaning lady Alessandra), staff helpful, for breakfast everything what you want. It's the first time when restaurant in the morning is serving vegetable juice. Great idea.

We have stayed in this hotel on several occasions over the past few years. The staff are very helpful, the rooms are comfortable although it would be better if the air conditioning units were not directly under the windows and blocked by the curtains at night. There are no shutters. The restaurant, however, is an utter disaster. The setting is...

The Grand Hotel Ortigia near Siracusa, Sicily is right on the sea. Make sure you get a junior suite with a loft for stunning views of the harbor. The hotel is right in the middle of everything and you can walk to wherever you want to go. Very near restaurants, sights, shops, etc.

Its a beautiful, decent old hotel. The terrace is so wonderful at breakfast when it's early morning, and peaceful for an aperitif. It is quite, and good hotel to sleep in. The style is very art neuvo and deco, but an eighties version, so feels like faded glamour (e.g. Massive curtain pelmets and decorated doors) but great base as opposite...

Grand in location - overlooking wide expanse of bay and marina nearby, across a busy street though - grand in decor (marble, high ceilings, still feels like the family palazzo it once was), and with a grand top floor bar-dining area view. Friendly staff, clean rooms, good food. BUT - the 1st floor rooms have been reconstructed so that you...
