As soon as we were greeted so warmly by Giuseppe and Paula it was clear we were treated as old friends. Nothing was too much trouble for our wonderful Sicilian hosts. They were quick to help us with any request for help or advice and their hospitality went far beyond any simply professional basis. The lounge, breakfast room and large... More

Casa Ruffino is a unique place in Italy which we were lucky to get in. First of all, this is extremely beautiful, cosy and clean hotel. Every room is desighned in different way with great taste of its owners - Paola and Guiseppe. Inside the room you can find everything you need: air conditioning, hairdryer, safebox.

We felt really welcomed by Giuseppe and Paola from the first moment. The room was clean, spacious and lovely designed. The breakfast was a wonderful feast of delicious food – fresh bread, hams, various different cheeses – outstanding ricotta, eggs, fruits and sweets to mention just some, plus strong coffee, tea and freshly made juices. Next time we go to... More

We stayed here for the last two nights of our holiday and what a good move that was! This is a lovely B&B . Our room was beautiful with a lovely mix of contemporary and antique pieces . But the best thing about this place is the welcome from the owner Guiseppe. We felt so relaxed here and the food... More

Casa Ruffino is an outstanding B&B. Both Guiseppe and Paola were extremely kind, friendly (they invited all guests one night for a dinner, and we received a jar of homecooked jam from them when we were leaving) and helpful! Room was pretty and clean, even quiet despite of the busy nightlife on the streets nearby. Breakfasts were delicious, we always... More

From the moment my friend and I arrived at Casa Ruffino, we were given the warmest welcome and made to feel at home straight away. Our room was a good size by European standards and had two twin beds which worked perfectly for us. The bathroom was also a good size and while the shower took a bit of time... More

Casa Ruffino, as many of the other reviews allude to, really is a home away from home. From the lovely greeting, through the beautiful freshly prepared breakfasts, to the sad farewell, Casa Ruffino was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are large and spacious and ooze character. The real stars of the show, however, are the owners Giuseppe and... More

Nice bed-and-breakfast, really worth to go here. Reasons: Giuseppe and Paola are really helpfull and do their best to make your really happy. Just talk to them and they will show you the Sicily they love. The number of rooms is limited ( only 8) , most of them are "old good style decorated", some with furnitures coming from 18-... More

We were in this B&B five years ago, when the hospitality, the comfort and cleanliness of the room, and the exquisite breakfast were excellent. It is hard to believe that this could have improved, but with the opening up of a large breakfast lounge on the ground floor the B&B has acquired a boutique quality on top of all its... More

Breakfast was superb. It was served at the table and had a huge variety and selection of ham, cheeses, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, scrambled egg etc., etc. This was by far our best breakfast in Sicily. The B&B was an easy 30 minute drive from the airport, missing the Palermo traffic. Parking was relatively straightforward. We stayed twice, once at the... More
