Fabulous 8.6 From 130 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Classic, friendly, wonderful place
Great, classic place, very friendly staff, reasonably priced parking. Breakfast was wonderful and the view spectacular. It's classic, which means few outlets (it took me forever to find the off switch for the overhead lights... behind the pillows, in a logical place). Harder place to get any work done in the room. But that's a very minor gripe.

Quiet Luxury
Classic setting excellent staff who could not do enough for you. Amazing breakfast buffet. Comfortable room excellent bathroom and all necessary facilities. Shame no pool or gym.
Peter, ie4 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
A three star experience at a five star hotel.
Air conditioning not working throughout hotel. Stayed in 3 rooms one night and still did not sleep due to heat. No apology from staff (except Chiara the following day). Staff quite rude. There was no compensation offered for inconvenience. Charged full rate for two nights without sleep. Never have we experienced such poor customer service from a supposedly 5 star establishment. Website shows beach facilities but none available. Had to pay $40 Euro for beach experience elsewhere. No offer of compensation. They are the worst 5 star we have ever stayed at and can’t understand how they merit 5 star.
Antonio, ca2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
We loved the hotel and location but our room was below the restaurant so it was very noisy in the morning . People were moving tables above our heads as we were trying to sleep! The room itself was a bit small but ok.

Great location, amazing food
All the common areas of the hotel are magnificent! The bathrooms are updated and very nice as well. The room itself leaves something to be desired and is very small. I would definitely stay here again as the location is perfect and the rooftop restaurant makes some of the best food in the city.

Lovely seaside hotel
We had a lovely room with 2 beds upstairs for the children and double bed for adults at the first level. Nice amenities, turn down service. We had nice time.
gbFamily trip
Exceptional 10.0
We had a wonderful time in Siracusa. The Grant Hotel Ortigia was excellent and the service was likewise. The concierge got us a terrific guide for our visit to the archaeological sites. The rooms we had were just what we had requested including a fabulous view of the sea. In addition, we had to go from Siracusa to Catania to catch a late overnight train to Milan. The manager graciously allowed us a room until our departure. It was extremely important. Sebastian was just terrific and we so appreciate his gesture on our behalf.

Really Grand hotel
The Grand Hotel Ortigia was just that, grand! It was beautifully decorated. The room was clean and beautiful. The view we had was of the water and it was grand. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.
