We enjoyed taking advantage of the great winter rates at the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes in January 2019. We had a beautiful room that we very clean and comfortable. The staff was very professional and friendly. The only thing lacking in our experience was the buffet breakfast.

The hop on-hop off bus to Ortigia was certainly in operation in October 2018. Check what time the last bus back is, though. I seem to remember it wasn't that late. Have a good trip.

"Ask for a quiet -no smoking room"
"We could not get an upgrade to a larger room even though it was ow season and there were few guests. At least ask."
"Get a superior room. Ask for a full (not Juliet) balcony. Room 102 was just right."
"eventually if you go for a beach view it could be worth it"
"Ask for a room facing the town!"
