This is a nice, clean and stylish place and the owner will give you good advice about tours in the area and speaks good English. Good breakfast too. Opt for some of the larger rooms with balcony downstairs if possible as the upstairs are a bit cramped in size at the same price.

We had booked an attic room - but when we arrived, we were offered a room with a terrace for an extra 5 euro a night. Quite a bargain! The terrace was on top of our room (reached by an external stairway) with pretty spectacular views. Probably the best 5 euro I've ever spent. And overall, the cost of our... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in beautiful Modica for our anniversary and hit the jackpot by staying at Hotel Relais.... The most amazing view in a most secluded courtyard overlooking Modica.. Okay it is alittle steep in steps to reach but you are in a hill town and with the views I would gladly have walked more steps.. The bed... More

This property is in the heart of Modica. The rooms have a ton of character and are very clean. The breakfast in the morning is delightful. The owner will whip up cappuccino for you and serves lot of yogurts. We selected Hotel Relais for two reasons; first, we wanted a true Sicilian experience and second, we always prefer in-town locations... More

we stayed in Modica for 2 nights. If it comes to Hotel Relais Modica we could have stayed longer, because Antonio made us feel very welcome. The room was great. good bed, large bathroom, all very clean and a splendid view from our balcony. Breakfast was very nice, a good choice. The hotel is in the centre of beautiful Modica.... More

I spent one night in Modica at Hotel Relais. Modica is a gorgeous and wonderful city, and Hotel Relais made the stay that much more special. I really did have a room with a view; from the terrace, room and from the bed! It was quite special. Antonio and Francesca, the owners, are the perfect hosts and so wonderful. I... More

After the terrible experience of being robbed, arriving at Modica was so wonderful, even with the rain. Modica is a pretty little town, with wonderful churches, divided into two parts: Modica alta and Modica bassa. The Hotel is in Modica bassa. And the room we were given had a wonderful view to Modica alta and its old Cathedral. The bedroom... More

My wife and I only stayed here for one night during our trip to Sicily, but we wished we would have stayed for more. The hotel is situated right in the heart of historical Modica and offers stunning views of the adjacent hillsides. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished and the breakfast was delicious.

With a memorable view of Modica and the wonderful welcome from Francesca and Antonio we will not forget our 4 nights at the Relais. The room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast quite acceptable. We were treated like family by Francesca who went out of her way to resolve a problem we had with collecting a hire car (a...
