Commanding the sea-front of fabulous Siracusa, Grand Hotel Ortigia is a superb, family friendly hotel in Sicily, and offers the perfect base for exploring with excellent food.

At Long Travel we love Ortygia’s narrow streets, lined with oleander, pretty baroque balconies, tempting glimpses of blue sea and fabulous shops and bars. Capitalising on its prime position on the seafront, and the beautiful and imposing building, Grand Hotel Ortigia offers traditionally stylish accommodation for all. Rooms are comfortable and the whole Grand Hotel Ortigia exudes taste and quality but still has a family feel.

The delightful roof terrace and restaurant, of the Grand Hotel Ortigia serves excellent food and has stunning views over the harbour. During the summer season, the private beach is reached by boat and is only for guests of the Grand Hotel Ortigia. (This service is chargeable )

This 5-star luxury hotel offers its guests elegant, large and spacious rooms, where to rest after a wonderful day exploring the city. 
Enjoy breakfast with a breathtaking view, the rich buffet breakfast is served every morning at the wonderful Terrazza del Grand Hotel. Here the choice of sweets of the delicious Sicilian pastry-making tradition is complemented by a wide variety of cold cuts, cakes of all kinds, fruit tarts, rusks, Nutella cream, jams, sandwich bread, yoghurt, cornflakes, seasonal fruit, as well as fruit juices, coffee and cappuccinos.
The Grand Hotel Ortigia feels exclusive. Such an architecturally important building, right by the sea, on Siracusa’s famous Ortygia, with an excellent and well-deserved reputation for its food, has always been a huge favourite with Long Travel clients – it is an exceptional family-friendly hotel.

“Grand Hotel Ortigia is very well located with super helpful staff. The private beach and boat transport was excellent. High quality breakfast with a wide range.” Richard & Suzanne, Exeter

“Extremely friendly staff. So central for exploring Siracusa, we really enjoyed the roof terrace too.” Brian & Jackie, Farnham

“Food and accommodation excellent, with an unbelievable view from the restaurant. We had assumed dinner would be expensive so didn’t eat in much, but BIG mistake, because it was very good value. The staff were fantastic, the best anywhere! My wife fell ill towards the end of the holiday and the help, kindness and sympathy of the hotel staff was overwhelming.” Malcolm & June, Isle of Wight

“We found the staff at the Grand Hotel most helpful and pleasant, and the food was good. Ortigia was just the right size for exploring and we were fascinated by all the little streets and the way in which one suddenly emerged in a beautiful piazza.” Stella & Nora, Frinton-on-Sea
