Grand Hotel Ortigia Review

An elegant, fantasy-inspired design prevails at this venerable institution, which has enjoyed a prime position on the Porto Grande at the base of Ortygia since 1890. A surreal seascape painting and whimsical chandelier set a dreamy tone in the lobby. Guest rooms have fine wood floors, inlaid wood furniture, and stained-glass windows. Spacious bi-level suites with staircases cost about €60 more. While you indulge in excellent food at the rooftop restaurant, take in the superb views over the harbor and seafront. To relax choose the in-house spa or, between June and September, take the shuttle service to the hotel's private beach between.
