We extended our stay in this Hotel to enjoy Ragusa and the South Eastern sites and beaches of Sicily. The look and feel of the hotel is classy and smart and the staff were informed, warm and helpful - booking restaurants and advising on beaches, directions and places to go. The sister hotel located round the corner provided a pool... More

We stayed here 3 nights as part of a 2 week tour of Sicily. We had a tiny room with a very small bathroom. The shower did not even have a soap dish or anywhere to put shampoo. The sink was artsy placed on top of the vanity with very limited area around it to put toiletries. Due to its... More

I stayed at De Stefano Palace 3 nights during my travels in Sicily and it was the best experience of all, it really gave me the good feeling: beautiful, stylish and with a superb service level. The staff were friendly and helpful. Very close to the spectacular way down to Ragusa Ibla, which is important.

This is a great boutique hotel, in a quiet residential area, and yet only a few blocks from the main square in front of the big Duomo church of the city. The building is very modern in side, with great interior design and respect for the original layout of the building. It is clearly well managed and clean. The breakfast... More

Overall was good, breakfast was nice, there are not many open air spot in the hotel, it seems everything within four walls. Our room had a small window but overall was a good experience! It is close to ragusa ibla which at the end is the only reason why visiting ragusa

As many others have mentioned, the hotel is a modern conversion of historical buildings and quite charming. There are 2 "suites " in the hotel. Both have lovely baths with an increasingly commonly found glass window separating the bathtub from the bedroom. Not sure the reason for this, as the light from the bathroom illuminates the bedroom if one goes... More

This sympathetically restored palace for Sicilian nobility; there is even gilt and a restored fresco. The palace is on the south side of the upper town, conveniently located for both the high town and historic area. The superior rooms are impressive: ours had elegant double doors and a vaulted stone ceiling 12 ft (4m) high. Luxuriously appointed, very comfortable beds... More

We stayed here last year for 5 nights and had a great stay. Loved the hotel and our room and the staff were very friendly so this year we returned for 2 nights at the end of our break in Sicily. Hotel is still nice but the room we were shown to when we arrived was on the ground floor... More

We were there for 3 nights and it was the best. Great breakfast and the staff went out of their way to give you whatever you needed. It was close to anything you could need in town. The room was very modern and clean nothing could be found that was wrong. I would come back again.

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...
