Grand Hotel Ortigia Review

An elegant though somewhat old-fashioned 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. While you indulge in excellent food at the rooftop restaurant, take in the superb views over the harbor and seafront. To relax choose the small in-house spa or, between June and September, take the shuttle service to the hotel's private beach. The hotel is also one of the only in Ortigia with private parking, right across the street.
