We stayed here one night -- after a hasty escape from an unsatisfactory accommodation near Agrigento -- and we cannot wait to return and stay a little longer. Having fled our previous lodging with no plan, we found Antica Badia Relais Hotel with the TA app and made a reservation. We did not arrive until nearly 8 p.m. -- and... More

An attractive warren of a building with about 20 rooms situated right beside the cathedral of St John the Baptist. Easy to find in the town. Rooms are fine with good bathrooms, decorated with lots of mirrors, lace, swags and big silk curtains. Picturesque function rooms that would look good in wedding photo's. Wi-fi impossible to get working despite clear... More

The rooms are large, the plumbing new and the desk staff helpful. However, the wifi doesn't work well, the hotel layout is odd and the many gathering rooms old and fusty. The hotel is not at all close to Ragusa Ibla which is much more charming than Ragusa. Within the latter town, the hotel is well located across from a... More

The Antica Badia Relais is in an excellent location across the street from the Duomo in Ragusa Superiore but a short walk to Ragusa Ibla. The staff is excellent and we received fabulous service. The common spaces are beautiful as is the dining room/breakfast area. Our first night was spent in the Magnolia room. When, the next morning, neither we... More

We stayed in Ragusa the third time, Antica Badia is always our first choice in this area of Sicily. In the center, but still a quiet Hide-away. Excellent breakfast, much more what you expect in Italy and a restaurant in the Hotel that is much more than the usual Hotel-Cousine. Every room we have experienced up to now a jewel... More

I spent 2 nights at Antica Badia during a little western Sicily tour with my mom. It was the month of December. Although the hotel is an atypical 5 stars (an ancient building remodeled with good taste and great attention to details), the service and personnel make you feel welcomed since your arrival. The regular rooms (I stayed in one... More

Lovely historic building with quirky, modern interiors (typically Italian amazing modern bath fixtures). Our room (all rooms named after flowers) had a cathedral-like stone arched ceiling and futuristic decor-actually very comfortable and fun. Over-the-top richly decorated dining room (picture silk-drapped tables. Fine china on pillows-yes, pillows). Nice dinner and good breakfast buffet (however, cold coffee both days...?). Staff very helpful... More

Antica Badia Relais is a lovely gem of a hotel in a restored Baroque palace located in the historic section of Ragusa Superior (located on the hill above Ragusa-Ibla). Our stay was a wonderful experience - the hotel is beautiful, the breakfast buffet was a delight each morning, and the staff are fantastic!!! We cannot say enough praises for the... More

Our first visit to Sicily started with Mt Etna erupting out of the blue and delaying our arrival by a day. We chose this hotel using Trivago and we weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary. We managed to squeeze the hired car through the archway leading to this hotel in the middle of the city. From the moment we... More

So beautiful that you will not want to leave. All the people at this hotel go out of their way to take care of you and make sure that you experience the best of this delightful and Baroque gem.
