This hotel is situated in the very heart of Ragusa. We could park our car on the courtyard of the hotel. As we were the only guests on an Autumn day, the hotel felt a bit empty and cold, but on a busy Summer day it must be warm and cozy. The hotel is situated in a historic building. The...

It is far from perfect but it is charming. Rooms are incredible. We stayed for two nights with two small kids and people were very accommodating and patient with us. As some might have hinted here, breakfast is a disappointment, but you adapt. You could probably get a better breakfast anywhere else but then you will not get the beautiful...

Elegant old hotel. The service on reception was extremely helpful and even when we returned after midnight they provided hot drinks to our room on request. Room we had was adequate but perhaps a little "tired". The Hotel is in the upper town part of Ragusa whereas the beautiful part of the city is the lower Ragusa Ibla and whilst...

I decided to treat my husband for his 60th birthday and opted for this hotel on the basis of its 5 star rating. We have done a lot of travelling and have extensive experience of hotels of all stars but were a little disappointed with our experience. The location (in the centre of the main town) is excellent and you...

Delightful centrally located hotel with Car Parking facilities, perfect for visiting the city of Ragusa and near by Ibla. Our room was spacious & comfortable with a large modern bathroom and walk-in jacuzi shower. We received a very warm welcome from Ignazio at reception who also advised us on the best tourist sites in the area. We would gladly return...

Only stayed one night but in that short time it was obvious that the staff were amazing - from the lady at reception standing outside on the road to guide us to the hotel (we arrived late evening) to the staff at breakfast. A truly lovely start to our time in Sicily.

Check in was smooth and the lovely woman also helped us with reservations at Il Duomo that night. Room was green one with nice terrace and beautiful roofs and domes visible in the bright light of Southern Sicily. We had some wine and made watercolors on the terrace. The bathroom was super modern luxury brand fixtures but there was no...

We stayed two nights in Antica Badia hotel. The hotel is easy to access, directly across from the cathedral. Not in Ragusa Ibla, but walkable. The hotel is beautiful; well-restored and full of antiques, but complete with modern amenities. The thing that made it exceptional, rather the person, was Ignazio. I learned more about Ragusa and Sicily from a few...
