    An historic place to stay on Ortigia


    After finally managing to find the bridge onto Ortigia (the signs are a bit misleading and the one-way system confusing) I realised I hadn't bothered to write down the address of the place we were booked in to the first night! Fortunately I knew roughly whereabouts on the streetmap it was and found it after a bit of a stroll round. I have to say I was well impressed with this place which is situated right in the heart of the oldest part of Ortigia. The building was constructed in the 17th century and has somehow retained it's character in spite of renovation. We had room 7 which was tastefully decorated in light and earthy colours and had sections of plaster missed out in places to reveal the thick stone walls.

    Parking is available around the corner a couple of minutes walk away and there's a lift for baggage.

    Unique Quality: Breakfast was excellent and they deliver it to your room, at a time stated by you, on trays (for use in bed!) or on the rooftop terrace which offers views over the town and the sea.
    The room was immaculately clean and well-equipped so you could cater for yourself if need be.

    Directions: At the southwestern end of Ortigia island.

Need advice about hotels in Sicilia

by valtor

We are thinking about the following hotels and B&B:

Hotel Joli in Palermo
Aretusa Vacanze in Siracusa (Ortigya)
La corte degli angeli b&B in Siracusa (Ortigya)
B&B Morfeo in Taormina

We would like to know if anybody stayed there and has good / bad opinions about these places.

Did not stay in Hotel Joli in Palermo but it is very near the new and revamped harbour area (there is no beach hotel tospeak of in the city as tehbeach is Mondello).
All I can say is that the proprietor of my favourite Italian ristrante in Paisley trained the chef at Hotel Joli so if you're not coming to Scotland eat/ stay at theHotel Joli : )
