If you are touring southern Sicily (from Taormina, Siracusa, etc), this is the best hotel to base your stay. A charming hotel in an old Palazzo with all new amenities and good spa facilities. The hotel put us in contact with Chiara of the local tourist bureau and we had interesting tours lined up for our whole week in Sicily.... More

Although we would place the rooms (our travel group rented three) at the 4-star level, the remainder of this hotel is definitely 5. It's a beautiful palace that was once home to the original "mayor" of Ragusa. Service was excellent from start to finish. In Ragusa, this is THE place to stay -- and Ragusa is a charming city, very... More

This is not a conventional hotel. The rooms are quite different - our friends travelling with us had a relatively conventional room with high ceiling but ours was womb like in a barrel vaulted room. It was however a very quiet and comfortable room with an exotic if small shower that had several different shower heads to spray from all... More

This place was very bizarre. First of all, it smelled like a bad anti-septic, that permeated everywhere. Then , while there was a virile man at the "welcome desk", it was Conchetta who hauled our bags. The man just was flaccid, and indifferent to us. We originally were placed In a cave-like room, and although the bed was very comfortable,... More

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. If... More

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
