Driving into their narrow alley should have been a warning about what was to come. No way is this a 5 Star hotel. Rooms were ill conceived making it hard to get around. There was not one luggage rack in our room to open a suitcase. Bathrooms had similar problems.Didn't really have anyone to bring the luggage to the rooms... More

We found this hotel on-line and couldn't believe what a gem we had found when we arrived. All the staff were exceptional in their knowledge of the area and had suggestions / recommendations for any type of restaurant that was fancied, from basic pizzas to Michelin 2*; all staff were attentive, but discrete and nothing was too much trouble.

Fantastic property, with incredible furnishings and style. The staff is very professional, truly helpful and friendly. They gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing and managed a change in our booking very gracefully indeed. We were so happy that we stayed at the Antica Badia a day longer than originally planned. If you love art, architecture and appreciate beauty... More

location – good, across from Cathedral and short walk to restaurants. Longer but very pleasant walk down to old town, catch the bus to bring you back My GPS sent me on a wild goose chase around incredibly narrow streets to pull up in front of hotel, not necessary as you drive through the doorway into an inner courtyard; google...

Barocco style at the highest levels. The hotel is located in the hart of Ragusa and is 15 minutes walk from Ibla or few minutes by cab (10 euros fix rate). It offers large, clean, quite, finely decorated rooms. Parking available. The staff is outstanding, extremely professional and friendly. Michele and Ignazio are always available and full of suggestions. A... More

Stayed here a couple of nights. It wasn't fully occupied. We almost felt like we were the only guests at the time. It's a clean hotel with interesting decor in the rooms. Our room was all purple, Violetta. Had good breakfast - not as great as some of the other boutique hotels we stayed in Sicily but meh... it had... More

This hotel is amazing and the service is outstanding! We spent two nights there in July 2014 and would love to return soon. The city of Ragusa is well worth a visit, this hotel is located in the central parts and you've got everything you want close, within walking distance. The staff speaks english and is more than happy to... More

We booked here thinking we were going to be in the old town: turned out we were in the old part of the new town!! The staff were lovely and extremely helpful, and the breakfasts were fine though there were ever so many cakes each day on the table. I think there are two main problems with this hotel, accommodation... More

For a little inconvenience it is possible to enjoy Ragusa Ibla and this lovely establishment. The common areas are ornate, if a little under-used and the outdoor areas limited with no views. We booked basic rooms, all are comfortable and quiet but I suspect there are others that are more impressive. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Ignazio,... More

Very good location, charming reception, rooms with lots of character. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Although the sicilian breakfast was not our favourite (lots of cakes), everything works well with us.
