Algila Ortigia Charme Hotel
Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel stands on the ancient “Mastra Rua”, a street that from the 14 th century was where the most important noblemen of the city had their residences.
The refined historic building that houses the hotel is the result of the fusion of two buildings and a recent restoration has preserved the original structure, creating an intriguing distribution of the rooms that is fascinating.
The restoration was overseen by the architect Manuel Giliberti who retrieved all the original elements in stone, like arches and carved keystones. Where necessary they were completed with new parts made using the same techniques and materials used for millennia; those local lime-stones that had such an influence on the development of the baroque style in this area. Decorations based on old Sicilian designs then integrated what had been seriously damaged by time, like the wooden ceiling of the room that is now the restaurant, that reproduces the few original boards that survived. Sicily is a place where local craftsmen and artists continue to work in the traditions of past centuries.
Antique furniture and precious brightly-painted ceramics of old Sicilian design, textiles in warm colours and an obsessive care in hiding the signs of the modern technology that guarantees high quality comfort, produce a harmonious atmosphere that will play an important part in your Sicilian experience; the rest will be played by the Sicilians, with their great sense of hospitality, their culture, their natural courtesy and kindness; things that we hope you will experience yourselves, and firstly in the people who run our hotel with great passion and sacrifice.
You’ll see two other places marked on the map; these are two equally fascinating hotels with differing positions and characteristics, also managed by us:
-Antico Hotel Roma 1880, next to the Cathedral, the former Temple of Athena;
-Residenza Alfeo, with six splendid suites on the waterfront of the Great Harbour.
