We stayed here and the breakfasts were amazing. They offered free bicycle use around the island and the room we had, had a view over the water. Lovely people and well located. The reception was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend as the best place in Ortigia

We were very satisfied with the amenities and value for four nights at the end of October. The location is quite convenient; you can walk all over Ortigia and the property faces the sea, with a nice rooftop terrace. The breakfast was in a very attractive room of this historic building and included a good range of selections and nice... More

We decided to stay here because of it's location by the water while only a couple minutes walk from the center of town. The rooftop balcony was nice to relax & take in the sea air. I was also intrigued that it used to be a convent and still had nuns on the premises working with the hotel. The room... More

We stayed next door at the Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel, which booked massages for my husband and me at the Domus Mariae Benessere. We get massages often and both agreed that our massages were great, as well as, we thought, reasonably priced. A great way to unwind after a long couple of days of traveling. Highly recommend.

Location: perfect, but for price, I expected more. My sea view was a small window with a sea view but you had to stand at the window to see out. Room was small, bed was small, a/c barely cooled the room. Breakfast was adequate, in fact better than usual for Italy. All in all though, I was disappointed. Would not... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your comment about your stay. Our rooms with sea view are with windows because the building is an old aristocratic Palace, so the windows are "bifore", mullioned windows that is not possible modify for the story of the Convent.

The hotel is superbly located, spotlessly clean, charmingly decorated and has a wonderful roof terrace. The room I was in was a decent size for a single, with a good-sized bathroom with a shower cubicle.

“Parking is a challenge. Avoid room 107, as the window opens right to the smokers area and privacy is limited.”
