Villa del Lauro is a small hotel in Ragusa Superiore near the steps that lead down into towards Ragusa Ibla, where most of the tourist sites are. The street is narrow and steeply sloping, which makes parking tricky, and in part dictates the layout of the hotel. Unusually for the area, so far as we could see, this has a... More

The beginning of our stay at this hotel was not flawless. We had rented a room in the annex of the building, just opposite the main building.a thing that we were well aware off. The room was actually fantastic, a duplex with a balcony that offered a splendid view over Ragusa. My enthusiasm dropped however dramatically when I asked for... More

This was a nice hotel made from a historic building and filled with charm. Here are the "good" and the "bad". I stayed in Room 11 Good: Large room Clean room Lovely garden setting for breakfast Good (free) wi-fi connection Bad: International TV stations did not work in my room Very small shower stall. VERY small, indeed. Had to walk... More

Excellent customer attention, boutique hotel with nice room. We were here during Christmas Holidays with the family and got there after drive from Catania, just about every restaurant in town was closed--no problem, the receptionist made us sandwiches and brought drinks. Nice way to start. The location is not far from Ragus Ibla. Breakfast was GREAT, my kids loved the... More

We wanted to stay 2-3 nights in this Hotel but checked out after 1 night. The Swimming Pool was inviting. But when we wanted to jump in, we saw a dead Dove in The Pool. We took it out and put beside the pool. Next Day the dead Dove was still there. There are about 100 Doves in and around... More

Our suite was lovely, very spacious with a separate living room. The view onto the street was very pretty and it is a very short walk to Ragusa Ibla. The pool was very nice and the main room where you have breakfast/ballroom was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend this lovely place.

The hotel owner really has a great eye for design and the villa renovation is truly lovely but as a hotel it just isn't quite working yet. Ragusa - a strange town I'm not sure if its on the way up or on its way out but it doesnt seem to have lots of tourists beyond day trips or 1... More

This was our first time in Ragusa and our visit to this part of Sicily was mainly because of the Montalbano series which showed the beauty and baroque of Ragusa, Ibla, Scicli and Modica. You will not be disappointed as these places are stunning and well worth a visit ! We were lucky enough to find this charming hotel Villa... More

Modern touch in a classic building on ideal location. Comfortable room with kitchenette, downside was the small shower and airco not cooling properly.. (we got an extra fan). Breakfast perfect quality in the tranquil garden. Too bad the beautiful pool was VERY cold (early september!), only the pigeons could take a plunge there...

It was very tricky to park near this hotel, compounded by the very steep roads around it! The receptionist helpfully let us park inside the compound at the rear. It wasn't an official carpark, more of a steep driveway but much appreciated. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the rooms were huge. The bathroom was a bit cramped but functional.... More
