This hotel was the home of Ragusa's founder and was the first building completed after the earthquake. It wasn't just a home, it was a palace -- with many cozy nooks and crannies, unusual staircases and a large ballroom. The decor makes you feel like you are living in a palace. We rented two rooms - one for my husband and I, another for our two adult sons. Both were roomy and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The staff was very accommodating and we had a great stay. Parking was a bonus.

Unfortunately this hotel is past its prime. The common areas were fine, but the bedroom was not good. Shower water pressure and temp constantly changed - poor/good pressure & hot/cold temps. Snotty baseboards, tacky furniture, poor bed. Definitely not 5 stars.

it is a nice experience to get away from the corporate hotel image. This was a small hotel and quirky. We walked into the old town down 330 steps and at the end of the night up 330 steps. We called in at there bar next door and had a great desert and nightcap.

We chose Ragusa rather than Ragusa Ibla (the older town) because of its easier access with a larger car that we had during our trip around Sicily. Our hotel, an old Palazzo that once belonged to a Barone, is almost opposite the town’s cathedral of San Giovanni Battista and was very easy to find and even easier to park as one could drive straight into the driveway where an employee took charge of the car and our baggage in a most efficient way. Check in processing was quick and courteous and although we were early for our rooms they took our suitcases and suggested the next door bar and restaurant that belong to the hotel where we could wait for our rooms. Our room was large, with period furnishings, a balcony that looked out at the interior driveway of the hotel and had a good size bathroom. On the same floor was the breakfast room, two adjoining rooms with a third one where the breakfast on offer was laid out, our coffee order was taken and we served ourselves at the buffet. Food was plentiful although the variety was less than at other places, given the smaller size of the hotel. This is a great period building with all the modern facilities that one might require at a central location that provides easy access to restaurants and within easy walk to the attractions of Ragusa Ibla.

This hotel suited our needs perfectly. It is only a 25 minute walk to Ragusa Ibla via a most charming network of stairs and quiet streets. We were also lucky to find out that it is within a 2 minute walk to the hip restaurant strip in Ragusa just past the piazza across from the hotel. It is a great hotel for the money.
