This really comfortable and accommodating B&B was one of the highlights of our stay in Sicily as Erminia and her mother made us fell so welcome and at home. The place was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortably furnished and the breakfast was super. Afficionados of the TV series "Montalbano" will, of course, delight in staying right on top of one...

This spot is truly charming: the ancient palazzo in the shadow of the magnificent baroque duomo provides a haven of genteel calm with its tastefully decorated rooms (ours had a hand painted ceiling and ancient decorated tiles on the floor) and is an ideal base from which to explore Ragusa. But what makes this place special is the warm and... More

no need to repeat the previous reviews, since all is correct: perfect location (and nicely warm on a chilly night outside), lovely hosts, amazing breakfast. The palazzo takes you back in time and is a unique backdrop for your holidays. We'll cherish the souvenirs and hope to be back soon.

There are B&Bs and then there is the Palazzo Castro Al Duomo. The location is perfect in the very heart of Ragusa Ibla. Our room overlooked the square,a perfect setting. The house is stunning and beautifully furnished. Our room was spacious, and learning that we both drink ridiculous amounts of tea, we were provided with a kettle,tea bags, and cups... More

We loved staying in this gorgeous, perfectly situated palazzo, run by the lovely sister hosts, Lucia and Erminia. They were extremely attentive and helpful and served a luscious breakfast of wonderful breads, homemade jams, cake, excellent coffee and juices. The palazzo is exactly where you want to be, and has been in their family for centuries, filled with beautiful art,... More

We really enjoyed staying here because: *It's a great location right in the middle of the old town, but the owners had a parking permit for us and gave us very clear instructions about driving to the B&B so it's not difficult if you're travelling with a hire car. The views from the balcony over the old square are beautiful... More

We have just returned from a week in Ragusa Ibla, and there can have been no better choice of place to stay, I'm certain. This very grand and handsome family palazzo is situated right on the main piazza, and has the most charming views from its balconies. Our suite ( de Merlitti) was fabulous. We could imagine that we too... More

I recommend you stay here, we had a great time. First we were three travelers and she upgraded us to a room larger which was very thoughtful. The location is perfect, she gave specific directions of location and parking. The town is tiny and fun to walk around and central to explore other towns. The breakfast, as others have mentioned...

During easter holidays earlier this year we stayed shortly in this B&B. The location is fabulous, the B&B itself is a historical building which has been restructured. Breakfast is served in a beautiful decorated room with a very personal touch of the host. The rooms are very spacious and also nicely decorated fitting with the spirit of the building. Since...

It is one of huge most gorgeous places we stayed while in Sicily- beautifully renovated, great location. Our room was beautifully appointed and decorated and we had a balcony view of the main square and the Duomo. Fantastic typically-Sicilian breakfast
