district: Isola di Ortigia
Located on the island of Ortigia in Siracusa, amidst Sicilian baroque architecture and ancient Greek ruins, the charming 3-star Hotel Gran Bretagna is set in a palazzo entirely restored in 2001.
The hotel takes it name from the English merchants and sailors who choose Syracuse as a meeting point for their trades and important passage to Malta. The excellent position of the hotel enables guests to visit Ortigia on foot with the Porto Grande harbour, with its tree-lined promenade, 100 metres away.
Subdued rooms come with air conditioning, a minibar, a flat-screen TV and a safe. Bathrooms have a free courtesy set and a hairdryer. Some rooms sleep up to 4 and/or have balconies. Junior suites feature frescoed ceilings.
A complimentary Sicilian breakfast is served in the dining room with a glass ceiling. There is also a reading lounge.
If you want be an “Ortigian” you should stay at Hotel Gran Bretagna!
