Magical splendour upon entrance with marble designed floors, high ceilings and awe inspiring staircase. Have a look down from the top floor. Warmly welcomed from reception. Luxurious sojourn on this historical Island of Ortigia. Centrally located and walking distance to Duomo. Electric bus # 1 stops in front of hotel. Offers trip throughout Ortigia. There is also bus #2, 3...

We arrived at this place with the inspiration to be able to profit from a 5 star hotel with all its amenities. It revealed itself to be a proper disappointment. Personnel at the reception is not particularly welcoming the guests and the first room we got was even though equipped with a seaside view (apparently an exception in this structure),...

This hotel is in an excellent location with stunning views. It is worth paying the little extra for a room with a sea view. The room was spacious and clean. Balcony doors open to the sea view. The hotel staff are very kind and helpful. The breakfast buffet (included in the price) is great. A mixture of traditional and Sicilian...

We had a third floor room with a sea view across the bay. Good comfortable bed. Everything was spotlessly clean. Well equipped bathroom. One grumble - the rail in hanging cupboard in the bedroom was so high up it was difficult to reach even for quite tall people like us. The wifi was slow. The hotel staff were all approachable...

Where does one begin with this hotel? It is listed as a 5* hotel on every travel booking site and yet it could not be further from the truth. The mattresses must have been about 30 years old with lumps in them, the night we stayed over there was a party that lasted until 2AM and which the front desk...

This hotel feels a little long in the tooth but it is well located and the staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is right on the harbor and has a roof top garden great for evening cocktails, panoramic views and sunsets. Had a spacious room with a private balcony. Perfect for taking in the afternoon sun.

When we arrived Olmo took care of us from the start. A perfect view of the bay from our third floor room was possible because we had a room with a balcony.

Chose this hotel as it said 5 star with a spa. Although the location for views was stunning, we felt disappointed with the hotel especially the spa.
