Our room as initially booked was in the annex however as the hotel was quiet we were offered an upgrade for a small increase in rate which we took. The hotel is beautifully restored. Large reception area with a cafe open to the public,... More

We arrived with a huge amount of drama.We got our car stuck in an alley, then dropped a bottle of wine in the middle of the lobby. The staff handled all of this with ease and grace, and we appreciated their warmth. The rooms were fun, well equipped and with character. The floor of one of our rooms was tile,... More

Stayed here for a 3 night city break in Modica. The staff could not do enough for us from parking the car to ringing restaurants and offering us breakfast when we got up late, really friendly accommodating people who made us feel as if nothing was too much trouble. The room was really spacious, immaculately clean and comfortable. The hotel... More

We stayed at Hotel Palazzo Failla three nights and truly enjoyed this charming historic hotel, beginning with the friendly welcome, the spacious and comfortable room, the excellent and varied breakfasts, and the ride down to the bus park when we left. The hotel is located in the interesting and historic upper part of Modica, where we got a good workout... More

Beautiful historic building and rooms from the 1700s. It is an elegant hotel, with such high ceilings that the room is taller than any other dimension. It has been a family home for centuries, and it was very interesting to be in the house of the people in charge of the desk, who were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. They... More

The owner and staff were super helpful and friendly. The rooms were large, beautiful, with very high ceilings and antique furnishings. The breakfast was exceptional!! The other couple with us had a room with a beautiful little balcony. This is the place to stay when in Modica

Unlike most people who do multiple locations we decided to make Modica our base for a 2 week holiday in Sicily so I can give a review based on a far longer stay than many others. I will break it down under various headings; Service - We have never experienced better service despite having stayed in many more expensive hotels.... More

Palazzo Failla is an old family estate perched at the top of Modica. The estate is filled with beautiful antiques. Our room had a little terrace that was perfect to enjoy a glass of wine every evening. The staff went above and beyond to assist us with our daily trips to Scicli and Ragusa. We just loved walking the stairs... More
