    Location parking is a few metres away. Breakfast was excellent and caters for different diets and religion.

    Room 202 was a bit noisy in the afternoons as seems to be some maintenance work going on. Also room 202 is under the breakfast room and one could hear the staff moving the chairs and tables.

  • 8.8

    We stayed in June. Position in relation to the old city, restaurants and sights is excellent. Everything is within easy walking distance. The terrace where breakfast is served provides a lovely panoramic view on a sunny day. We pre booked parking which is open air and straight across the road. It's boom gated so fairly secure. Overall the staff were pleasant and very helpful.

    If you want to be right in the centre of things in Italy be prepared to put up with some street noise into the early hours. We had a split level junior suite. The bed is above and everything else including bathroom is below at entrance level. Could be a challenge for elderly travellers.

  • 4.2

    Arrived at property after 2.30 in the morning due to a delay in easy jet flight of 4 hours We were shown to a so called junior suite which consisted of a high cringing small room that had a spiral stair case leading to a bed We refused to stay in it because we could just fall down the stairs really clausterfaubic The only other room they had was a tiny room fit for a child . We could not sleep the whole night it was awful We changed the next day after one in the afternoon. They refused to do anything about it and in the end they gave us a 40 euro discount. That room was not worth 40 euros it was a terrible start to the holiday

  • 5.0

    Disappointing - breakfast & situations are great, all the rest to be improved...

    Noisy hotel, from the inside! If you need to sleep, you should go elsewhere. People starting to clean rooms and prepare breakfast as of 6am in the morning. At this price, I appreciate to wake up when I decide, not when managers speaks on the phone or to other employees on the corridor. Be aware that they speak loud to wake you up, but they loose their voice to say hello. Rude check out, the lady stayed on the phone when preparing my invoice, and forgetting the "please" when telling me I had to pay 10 euros of taxes.

  • 8.8

    The Grand Hotel Ortigia is a beautiful, stately hotel in a great location looking out onto the sea. It is near the bridge linking Siracusa with Ortigia and so is very convenient for walking around the island or for going into the city. Because the hotel is only three stories, you do not get very high up views of the sea - my room was on the first floor so you did not see much sea. However, the room which was on two levels, was very well appointed and I found it to be very comfortable and spotlessly clean. A very good buffet breakfast was served on the third floor where you could dine outside on the terrace which had great sea views. The wi-fi available free throughout the hotel was excellent.

    There was nice reception/lounge area which was a bit soulless and there did not seem to be any service to have a coffee, a drink or a snack. There was a small bar which was equally soulless - I never saw anyone in it and i stayed there for a week. The staff were pleasant and helpful but just that bit distant/removed. I was there for seven days but felt no connection with the staff even though i was interfacing with them day in day out .... the feeling of being just a number.

  • 10.0

    Beautiful views

    Important to reserve a parking space otherwise it's very expensive

  • 8.2

    Excellent breakfast selection in a lovely space with views, and possibility of outside terrace if the weather permits. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

    The bed in the upstairs gallery was such a tight fit that there was room for a bed-side table on only one side of the bed. A particularly large person would have had difficulty getting down that side of the bed

  • 8.2

    Great room overlooking the Port. Good well stocked Breakfast Buffet.

    A means to make toast at breakfast.

  • 7.0

    Rooms a bit small

  • 9.6

    Well located to walk the beautifull ortiga. The hotel used to be a great hotel, now is a bit old, but is quiet well.

  • 9.2

    Private Parking available Excellent breakfast in the teras with outstanding view.

  • 8.8

    good localisation, acces to the parking, very good breakfast, nice view from the restaurant

    cold room

  • 8.8

    Staff (with one exception) were excellent - helpful, obliging and pleasant

    The man on the Reception Desk who was less than helpful; also the "suite" was small and very inconvenient, with bedroom upstairs but all clothes storage downstairs

  • 8.8

    The room (on two floors) was large (with a rather small bathroom) and room service/cleaning was excellent. The hotel has a nice top-floor terrace with a view towards the bay. Helpful staff.

    If you expect a high-tech outfit: it is not. The hotel is very traditional, but this is only an observation, not a complaint.

  • 5.8

    The location is excellent and the only hotel in the area with on site parking which is why we chose it. We had a room with a sea view. (We had specified this at booking).

    The room had dated decor and felt unloved. We would have expected tea making facilities in the room. The roof terrace felt unwelcoming-we went up to get an afternoon drink but didn't stay. We turned around and went into the town. The breakfast was poor with little in the way of healthy options. The cold meats were very fatty, the bacon greasy and the scrambled egg sour and inedible. Fresh fruit was the best option. Although the car park was useful it wasn't clear how to enter and we had to pay extra for this luxury. Overall this hotel didn't live up to it's 5 star rating.
