This family owned and run hotel is very delightful. Each room is distinctive and comfortable. The location is central to much of the old city. We had a delicious dinner in their restaurant. My only complaint was that one of the rooms occupied by a member of our group had an odor that unfortunately was related to the septic system.

We spent three nights at this beautiful family run hotel. The owners and staff are exceptionally helpful and professional. Our bed room had been the old sitting room in the Palazzo and with it's high frescoed ceiling, antique furniture, old beautiful tiled floor and balcony was a delight. The elegant dining room is where breakfast is served and later becomes... More

We booked a hotel in Modica as we wanted to tour the hillside towns of this area. We loved the unassuming feel of this town. Palazzo Failla is family owned/operated with a warm, friendly while professional atmosphere. We were upgraded to a suite with balcony with only slight increase in price. After settling in we walked through the streets of... More

What a lovely hotel! We could not have been happier. The room was lovely and the staff was exceptional. The hotel is a few minutes walk from San Giorgio Cathedral in a lovely square at the top of Modica Alta.

We stayed here in November for four nights to celebrate a birthday and discover a little of Sicily. Our room was in the annex a short walk from the main hotel. We arrived at the hotel in a car. The hotel kindly offered to park our car as parking is difficult in the old part of Modica. The room was... More

The family could not have been more helpful, rescuing us when we had abandoned our car on the other side of Modica completely defeated by the one way system. Our room was very small with a skylight roof but proved to be quiet and adequately ventilated with an excellent bathroom. Breakfast in their restaurant was excellent.

I just finished my stay at this hotel and found it a wonderful property. The staff was extremely helpful (the hotel is family run), and went out of their way to make my visit a success. The included breakfast was both plentiful and absolutely delicious!! The menu for the main dishes changed every day so there was no opportunity for... More

Palazzo Failla is situated in Modica Alta, a quiter area of Modica in the upper part of town, with a good selection of good trattorie. The hotel is a traditional Sicilian palazzo with fine furniture and very elegant ambience.
