The staff are very friendly and makes the stay so nice. The rooms are modern even to the absence of soap dishes in the shower and sink. Breakfast consisted of mostly a variety of sweet rolls, cheese and some meats. I suggest that the hotel install soap dishes, towel hooks and a clothes line for the distant travelers. We stayed...

This is a wonderful charming hotel. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Room was large and very clean. bed was comfortable and location is such that it is fairly quiet. Breakfast was well presented and tasteful - one could not ask for more in a hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Our room was noisy. You could hear people talk clearly in the corridor and room next to us. There were lots of little flashing lights when you turned off the main light - the alarm, the minibar fridge, the bathroom was very very cramped. We just felt this place felt short of what we would have expected for the price... More

We spent three nights here in room 12 which had the most amazing bathroom - the bath is part built into the bedroom in a glass box! The room was large with a balcony and the most amazingly painted ceiling. This hotel is a gem near the centre of Ragusa. Beautifully restored but very modernistic it has a great atmosphere.... More

This is a beautiful building, lovingly and sympathetically made into a comfortable and modern hotel. I have to particularly commend the staff, and Sofia (?) the head housekeeper, for running such a smooth operation - nothing seems to be too much trouble, and all with a smile. I see that others have made negative comments because there is a serious... More

I cannot even work out where to start with my praise of this hotel! What an incredibly lucky find! The hotel is absolutely a work of art - cathedral like inside and beautifully appointed! This is 5 star luxury without the price tag. Of all the hotels I've stayed in in my life, this really rates in the top 5... More

Where can I start - this Hotel is an absolute gem!!! We were immediately greeted by the lovely hotel staff - who seemed to ignore the fact that we were being quite boisterous - there were six of us travelling together - we had just arrived so were all excited like little kids (besides two of our group count as...

From the street it's hard to believe that this nice of a hotel exists. Quiet small typical Sicilian street. When I arrived the streets were empty (8:00). Room had very high cathedral ceilings that looked very old. Bathroom was very modern and the staff nice enough. Only downside was they were still under remodel (expansion) and the jack hammering started... More

Can't say enough about this beatiful hotel. We have been traveling through Sicily for the past 7 days & this hotel & staff are the best we have encounted!

We have no hesitation in recommending this fine boutique hotel in Ragusa. From the minute we walked into De Stefano Palace we were greeted with a smile and genuine service. The hotel is in an excellent location in a very safe and convenient area with a parking spot outside front to drop luggage off. It is a short walk to... More
