These two splendid buildings are situated in one of the most beautiful places on the island of Ortigia, an enchanting place which has been declared “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.
Magnificent and imposing, situated in front of Porto Grande (Great Harbour), Des Etrangers Hotel & SPA, connected by a low building, directly overlook Passeggio Adorno and to the side, overlook the great belvedere and the Aretusa Fountain.
The complex has five floors and stretches towards the nearby Cathedral Square with irregular shape, due to the ancient design of the medieval city.

The style and design recall the town’s splendour at the beginning of the 20th century, with that typical Neo-classic Sicilian taste, balconies decorated with wrought-iron work and stone columns, a large imposing doorway and, inside the hotel, high-quality marble flooring, walls and ceilings enriched with plasterwork and gold-leaf friezes. The faces of Zeus, Medusa, Gelone and Arethusa, illuminated by an antique bronze chandelier, welcome arriving visitors.

Almost all the bedrooms overlook the harbour, while the restaurant, on the top floor, has a breathtaking panorama: views over the roofs of Ortigia, above the calm shining sea, the bell tower, face-to-face with the sun setting.
On the ground floor, a large congress salon with natural light holding over 330 people, a reception salon with sea view and a luxurious wellbeing centre, complete the range of facilities of this prestigious hotel.

The exclusive Aretusa Spa & Wellness with an indoor Jacuzzi, is conceived to ensure the privacy of its guests. No fees required to wellness trail like emotional showers, sauna, Turkish Bath, cloud-bed, ice machine. Moreover with fees, our guests can pamper themselves enjoying the Aromatic facial and body rituals or trying a large variety of massages, as Swedish, Californian, Oriental, Shiatsu and couple massage.

Our staff is also available for aesthetic treatments. In the relaxing area herbal teas and an assortment of infusions are served. The Des Etrangers Hotel & Spa is furnished also of a Fitness Centre with modern Technogym equipment and machines provided of tv monitor and usb connection. Personal trainer on request. The entrance to the Wellness and Fitness Centre is free of charge for all our guests.

His Opinion: Das Hotel liegt wunderbar mitten in der Altstadt, alles auf Ortygia ist leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen. Die Zimmer sind schön bis sehr schön, unseres allerdings (118) lag halb seitlich (wunderschöner Blick auf die Aretusa Quelle) und direkt darunter lag eine Kneipe mit Aussenbetrieb, das war Seher lange Seher laut!!!!!

His Opinion: Das Hotel liegt auf der Isola Ortigia und unser Zimmer bot eine atemberaubende Aussicht direkt auf den Golf von Siracusa. Frühstück und Bedienung waren gut. Allerdings sind die fünf Sterne, mit denen sich das Hotel anpreist, längst verblasst. Unser Zimmer entsprach mit seinem sehr in die Jahre gekommenen Bad alles andere als einem fünf Sterne-Niveau.

His Opinion: Hôtel un peu vieillot, qui aurait besoin d'un bon lifting et relooking (surtout du restaurant, du bar et de la salle de petit déjeuner).
Chambre spacieuse et confortable, literie un peu limite et clim bruyante.
Service peu mieux faire...
Ce qui le sauve : la vue incroyable et la situation au coeur de la vielle ville de Syracuse.

His Opinion: Ein herrliches Spätsommerwochenende mitten im November! Das Hotel verdient alle seine Sterne, Traumblick direkt vom Zimmer aufs Meer und den Sonnenuntergang.
Der Papyrus-Brunnen "Fonte Aretusa" ist direkt vor der Haustür und zum romantischen Domplatz sind es nur ein paar Schritte durch die verwinkelten Gassen von Ortigia, wo man auch viele hervorragende Restaurants findet.
Am Besten frühstückt man (netterweise bis kurz vor 11 Uhr!) im Panoramarestaurant - mit einzigartigem Blick auf ganz Ortigia, vom Castello Maniace bis rauf zum Hafen - so ausgiebig (wenn man will, auch ganz deutsch mit Müsli und viel frischem Obst), dass man danach das Mittagessen klein hält und umso mehr Zeit hat, um durch die engen Gassen und den Lungomare entlang zu flanieren!

His Opinion: The hotel was just wonderful, real value for money, the internet photos do you injustice -do change them. We really enjoyed the afternoon candies the staff left on our rooms, made us feel like home. You could add canoli for breakfast, since it is typical sicilian, and perhaps improve the coffee served. Great location and great view

His Opinion: Excellent location - cental but quiet, very good service and breakfast. "De luxe room with sea view" had really very nice view from the small balcony but for this category and 5 star hotel was not very large and had no anteroom - entrance from the corridor directly to the room. But for the price I paid (107 euro) it was OK and I was satisfied.
