Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel Ortigia

Located right in the centre of the baroque jewel of Ortigia


Right in the centre of the baroque jewel of Ortigia and just a stone's throw from the seafront, the Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel offers 54 comfortable rooms created in a warm yet authentic style. Rooms are located throughout the two adjacent palazzi, Palazzo Bongiovani and Palazzo Algila, stretching across four original buildings. Beams and other original features such as antique pieces help to reflect the Sicily of the 1700's and no two rooms are the same. All rooms have a safe, hairdryer, free soft drinks in the mini-bar, TV, a shower and complimentary Wi-fi throughout the hotel. There is a small French balcony too, but not in all of the rooms. Views are of baroque buildings or a partial sea view. 


The attractive restaurant serves a delicious buffet breakfast and evening meals too (the restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings) and do try a 'latte di mandorla' in the Cosy Bar  – a local drink using fresh almond milk with a shot of espresso... delicious! Shops, bars and excellent trattorie abound, serving up sumptuous seafood meals. At the end of the day, as Ortigia’s white buildings turn a magical honey colour, an evening stroll with alfresco dining in Ortigia's beatufiully lit piazzas is arguably one of the most romantic and charismatic experiences in Sicily!

Please note that due to the hotel's location, car parking is only available off-site and has to be pre-booked. Charges apply and are payable locally, direct to the hotel.

The hotel can lend you bicycles free of charge too!
