The Grand Hotel Ortigia is small but truly grand. It's located on the lido, overlooking the harbor, an easy walk to all the sights on Ortigia. There is free parking.
We booked the Aretusa Suite which had two bathrooms (one with tub, the other with a large stall shower), a lofted sleeping area, a large sitting room, and a terrace with a harbor view.
Staff was helpful and efficient. The breakfast, served at the rooftop restaurant, was excellent, with fresh baked goods, fruit, juices, coffee made to order, and many other hot and cold dishes.
The hotel had the look and feel of the kind of Mediterranean hotels you see depicted in movies.More
