“We highly recommend Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

My husband and I spent 4 nights (3/23 - 3/27) in this hotel and loved it. I can't say enough about how wonderful all of the staff here were. Beyond helpful in every way, they were also very pleasant and sincere in their enthusiasm for our stay. The room fee included a huge breakfast - full menu with omelets etc. made to order - or room service if you ask for it. The location is ideal, the room adequately sized (we had a small terrace overlooking the sea) and they provided a self-serve area of juices, seltzer and light snacks all day long. Upon our checkout we were given a voucher for a free candlelit dinner on our next visit. Sadly, that probably won't happen...but it was a great gesture and a nice way to end our trip.

We loved this hotel. It is elegant and stylish, with all the beauty and warmth that makes Sicily so captivating. Marcello and the other staff at Reception are highly professional, helpful and very charming, as are the staff in the hotel restaurant, where breakfast is absolutely wonderful and dinner is also excellent, with a short but very good and well-priced wine list. Arrangements for transport to other cities were made very efficiently, but I have to say that we were so happy at this hotel that is was sometimes hard to leave it to go somewhere else. We can't wait to return to this lovely hotel in beautiful Ortigia.

This is a delightful small hotel, on the waterfront in Ortigia, Siracusa. Pricey at 203 euros a night, but beautiful and tasteful renovation. Staff was friendly, professional and accommodating. Room was not large, but well appointed with Frette linens on the bed, with a view of the sea. Possibly the best breakfast I have had in an Italian hotel in many years of travel in Italy. ,

The one drawback, thin walls and lack of soundproofing, if you are as unfortunate as we were to have noisy, active children in the room above you. But don't let that stop you, this is a lovely place.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean are nicest.

We just came back from a short break in Sicily, stayed at the Algila Hotel after reading all the good comments about it and we didnt regret it!!! Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, big room (we have four year old, so for us very important spacious room!) overlooking inside court, so it was very quiet in the morning! Definitely recommend this hotel to families with small kids and couples:)) Perfect location, just two minutes walk from the center of Ortigia. We went to have dinner at Dionisio restaurant, recommended by the hotel, charming, non touristic, Sicilian restaurant, when any restaurant has locals it means its a good restaurant:))

I like the front desk later. The receptionist was really cheerful. This is my first time to be in Syracuse and I’m thankful that the first person in the hotel we wanted to stay in had a pleasing personality. It was a busy day in the hotel and a lot of people were confirming their booking over the weekend and I was impressed with how she handled everyone. The rooms were small but nice, considering the place that we were in I think everything was kind of tight in the area. Algila Ortigia Charme just made this thing possible for me because I got to ride a bike around the area. It’s been a while since I did that. It was a fun experience in Syracuse. A lot of couples were there for their honeymoon too.

We spent two delightful days at the Algila in January. The hotel lives up to its name: full of charm and attention to detail. Most impressive was the attitude of the staff, from reception to dining room. They could not have been more charming, helpful, and enthusiastic. We will surely stay there again when w are next in Siracusa.

We loved this hotel and its location. We had a superb view of the water. Yes, as other people have commented, the hotel rooms are a little small. However we found them absolutely adequate in size and very charming. We had a meal in their restaurant and can thoroughly recommend it. Unfortunately it was open only one night while we were there, our last night or we would definitely have returned. I have written a blog on the meal at gallivantingisadora.blogspot.fr... 3 restaurants in Ortigia.
We would definitely return. We actually had booked into the Hotel Roma in Ortigia as friends told us it was in a better location. I don't agree! We were notified a few weeks before departure that the Roma would be closed for renovation and we would be accommodated in the Hotel Algila, managed by the same group. We were very happy…..and if you have a car it is indeed a much better location, with a small parking lot right on the doorstep.We never had any difficulties finding parking there and in any case the hotel has a few reserved parking places.

Room Tip: ask for a view over the sea.
