Highlight hotel of our trip
This hotel is only four years old. The original building was an elegant former post office. Although the standard room was not large in floorplan, it was artfully appointed with high ceilings, faced an inner courtyard, and in an ideal location to explore the island on foot. The staff was outstanding! We were given a welcome iced drink on check in, sat in plush chairs in their lobby, while we waited a few minutes to check into our room. Cannoli and bottled water was on the table in our guest room. The staff dropped off a dessert each night as well. The spa was free, we reserved it for two hours and that meant we had the entire place to our selves. What value for the money! Breakfast was outstanding! They do everything right at this place:) Only drawback, there was no signs outside with the hotel’s name. Almost like they wanted to keep it as a “ private club”. The hotel has been bought by a large American chain. I hope it can retain its Sicilian charm!

10/10 Exceptional

Stayed all over Sicily on this trip and the Ortega Palace was by far the best hotel experience. The room was superb (Junior Suite) and the hospitality service was fantastic. We were greeted at check in by what seemed to be our own personal check in assistant, shown to our room and she did not leave until we were happy with the accommodations (we were). The breakfast and service was fantastic and the reserved, complimentary use of the spa area (pool, sauna, steam room) made it a very nice, private experience. It was also much welcomed relaxation after spending a day walking the streets of Siracusa and Ortigia. Beautiful hotel with great service, conveniently located adjacent to paid public parking. I realized how great the parking was after watching large numbers of people lugging their suitcases through the streets of Ortigia to get to hotels more centrally located near Piazza Minerva.

Highly impressed with the luxury of the hotel and specially with the room. Price is reasonable considering what it offers. Every “corner” is nicely decorated. The staff provided “white glove” service at all times.
