We stayed here 3 nights on a tour of Sicily and greatly valued the opportunity to stay in a historic palazzo, beautifully decorated and maintained by the caring and most gracious owner-innkeepers. Though we had a suite facing the Piazza Duomo, it was quiet in the evenings and we slept comfortably in the king size bed. Restaurant recommendations include Quattro... More

What a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful place. Right next to the Cathedral, and superbly run by the family (the building has been in the same family ownership for 300 years). Genuinely friendly, welcoming and helpful. A perfect room, overlooking the square and the Cathedral. Simple but good breakfast - there is a real interest in providing good quality food. And now...

Our 4 night stay was greatly enhanced by all the information provided by our host Erminia. The room was large clean and had a wonderful balcony overlooking the Duomo where we watched a... More

We were in a day trip in Ragusa in December and decided to stay overnight completely spontaneously. Checked few B&Bs and hotels and decided to stay in Palazzo Castro. It was a great choice! Despite the fact that we did not book in advance, all the rooms were spotless clean and ready for the customers. The heating was immediately switched... More

If you're looking for a charming place to stay in Ragusa, this is it! Not only will the building/rooms draw you in, but Ermenia, your host is the reason this place is so wonderful. She was warm & welcoming and couldn't have been more accomodating. Showed us several rooms from which to choose before we settled on one in the... More

We stayed in the beautiful and spacious Jasmin room overlooking the Duomo and the center of Ibla. The sisters are very charming, breakfast typically sicilian and surprising. The palazzo is a fascinating place, we would definetely recommand staying there.

Everything said in the other reviews is perfectly true: the palazzo is beautifully placed, Ragusa is charming and peaceful, the palazzo itself is interesting and comfortable, but what made the visit so very pleasurable was the friendliness of Ereminia, happy to talk to us about the interesting things in her house, about the (truly gorgeous) foods she provided for breakfast,...

The two sisters who run the B&B are very lovely as well as being efficient, great cooks, and extremely helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their historic mansion. It was wonderful to be located right in the center of Ragusa Ibla in such a beautifully decorated historic building. We were especially grateful to the sisters for helping us with... More

This was the most outstanding B&B accommodation on our recent tour of Sicily this August. The building is magnificent, both inside and out, and deserves a 5 star rating along with the excellent service we received. The house is beautifully furnished and full of interesting paintings and other interesting pieces. Our bedroom with ensuite bathroom was huge and slept our... More
