Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel
Ranked #2 of 74 Hotels in Syracuse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I have just returned from a holiday in Sicily where I and my friend stayed at the Algila Charme Hotel for almost two weeks. It occupies a renovated XIX mansion and skilfully combines modern comfort with elements of history scattered around in a carefully designed manner. The building is beautiful, and it is a pleasure to explore its little nooks and corners. Rooms may seem a little on the small side (we had a classic double, apparently suites are larger), with just enough room for travel bags and personal belongings of two persons, but as we never intended to spend most of the time indoors, we were not inconvenienced by this fact. The bathroom was clean, with several sets of fresh towels and a small Bulgary beauty set. The breakfast is plentiful and has a good choice, so that one doesn't get bored even after 10 days of stay. Dinners served at the restaurant in the evening are delicious! What distinguishes Algila is the people who work there and the small extras that may not lie on the surface, but are a pleasant surprise to discover. The team is always friendly, positive, knowledgeable and ready to help. My special thanks goes out to Laura and Magdalena at the reception desk who were always there for us and responded promptly to all requests we had. As for the extras, they are, among other things, free beach towels (even though the hotel is not on the beach), drinks buffet in day hours (with my favourite almond milk), bikes, free international calls.

Dear Ekaterina,
thanks for being our guests.
Your review is the reward for our efforts, I am glad you enjoyed everything.
In Syracuse certainly can not be bored: for your next, long stay I would recommend booking one of our junior suites which are more spacious. Do it thoroughly in advance, you can take advantage of a very reasonable rate.
No lack of surprises among the pampering we reserve for our guests: beach towels, umbrellas, drinks, mini bar, bicycles, phone calls ... all free, and you'll always find smiling Laura and Magda to welcome you


Looking forward to meeting you soon

Best regards
Mariella Taranto
Manager

We stayed 3 nights in room 401 which had a terrace and hot tub. The staff at this hotel was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast (which was included) was extensive & tasty. This hotel was in a great location for walking to all destinations. The front desk was very helpful with restaurant choices. We traveled with two other couples and their rooms were very quaint & unique. I would stay here again.

A beautiful, contemporary conversion in this delightful city that until 30 years ago was apparently a no go zone. This hotel does exactly what it says on it's description. We had an effortless, relaxed stay thanks in part to the extremely helpful guy on reception (sorry can't remember his name). Our room was cool and comfortable with a small balcony looking over the water. Thanks for the huge array of gluten free products at breakfast. Highly recommended.

When we arrived by car after a long drive from Palermo and Piazza Amerina, the staff was extremely helpful, quickly taking our bags and parking the car. Our first night's dinner was in the hotel's restaurant--excellent--which I will describe in a separate review. Our room was perfect-a junior suite with a beautiful sea view. The staff at the front desk provided everything we could possibly want-restaurant recommendations, sightseeing tips and a wonderful guide for the archeological park. This is a beautifully furnished hotel in a very good location that provides travelers with all they could ask for.

Our initial reaction to this hotel was one part "seriously?" and one part "oh well, let's make the best of it". The rooms are tiny and have no views. The bathrooms are excellent, though, and the beds are comfortable. BUT what an adorable, generous, supportive staff. Everyone bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and many things that normally cost a lot were free. Dinner in the excellent hotel restaurant the first night you arrive? Free. Minibar? Free. Telephone calls? Free. Kindle downloaded with your choice of newspaper? Free. Incredible breakfast? Included. SO after a day or two we realized this was a special place and we are glad we found it.

This is a small, very charming hotel with great sea views in a very good location. Each room is uniquely decorated, but each contains a beautiful mix of antique furniture and modern conveniences. The reception staff is most helpful and willing to offer suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing. In addition, they take care of any problem instantly.

A small boutique hotel on the island of ortigia just across from Siracusa,Sicily. The staff is the best you will find anywhere. Courteous and always available. Great location with an eastern view of the sea. Excellent breakfast..fresh every day. Walk everywhere easily. A worth while stay in Sicily.
