The Algila' Ortigia Charme Hotel is housed in an exquisite 19th century building in the heart of historic Ortigia island, facing onto the ancient 'Mastra Rua' where the Siracusan nobility resided as far back as the 14th century. Recently restored to maintain its original structure comprised of three separate buildings, this boutique hotel enjoys a privileged position with a magnificent view of the sea.
Thirty guestrooms and Suites of varying sizes have been furnished with original antiques, four-poster beds and Mediterranean design motifs like colorful, hand-painted bathroom tiles, all of which add to the hotel's distinctive Sicilian feel. All rooms offer either a glimpse of the sea, or a view over a charming internal courtyard. Executive Doubles have king size beds, bathrooms with both shower and bathtub and a private, sea view terrace with a circular hydro-massage tub.
The ground floor restaurant offers a delicious cuisine that is in total harmony with the spirit of the hotel, and which distinguishes itself by its respect for Mediterranean traditions. No frozen or preserved products are used; only fresh fish and traditional Sicilian vegetables like eggplant, peppers and zucchini feature on the menu. The seafood couscous with prawns, calamari and shellfish is a perennial favorite with guests. As one might expect, the restaurant's impressive wine list is exclusively Sicilian.
