The primary building is an old elegant family castle in very nice area close to Cathedral, restaurants, etc. We found discounted rate through Expedia but when arriving were taken 2 blocks away to another property, down small alleyway, on top of restaurant. Room/bed was fine, wifi went on and off entire time although they tried to fix it. Fortunately, our... More

Absolutely fabulous stay! Teeming with old world charm, Hotel Palazzo Failla came well recommended and my wife and I were not disappointed. Our room was quite spacious and clean; fantastic staff - very friendly and accommodating, prompt, attentive to our needs. We felt welcome from the moment we stepped in. The complementary breakfast had everything we want to start the... More

This is one of the most enjoyable stays I've ever had in a hotel. From the first contact where the staff took our bags out of our car and then drove our car to the parking area, we knew this was a hotel with Old World and Old School charm. In the best possible way. Our room was huge with... More

A real Palazzo in the majestic quarter of Modica Alta. Customer service is excellent. While one competing hotel noted if I arrived by bus it would be 20 or so euro cab ride, Palazzo Failla said, "Let us know your arrival time, we'll pick you up." The hotel itself is all good, from the gracious welcome and on-going interchanges with... More

As with many hotels in southern Italy, this is a converted palace that still requires a lot of work. It could be much better. The building itself is quite charming and the staff is very friendly and very attentive but ........ Firstly, the location is at the junction of 2 busy roads and it's a constant parade of cars and...

The hotel is located in the upper part of Modica (alta). It is on a lovely cobbled street with many shops, restaurants and sightseeing locations near by. Walking down to Modica is lovely, but quite a walk up! The staff was very helpful and friendly! Although I didn't realize that the room we booked was in the attic, the host... More

From the moment we parked our rental car until we packed up again, our experience at this top-notch hotel was totally enjoyable. Although we arrived early in the day before our room (in another building separate from the hotel) was ready, we were warmly greeted and invited to leave our suitcases so we could begin to explore Modica "Alta."

From the moment you enter you are made to feel welcome. The girls at reception could not have been more helpful or cheery, advice on parking the car, help with baggage and even suggesting the possiblity of a multi-lingual tour of the town. The hotel is delightfully faded splendour, elegant, timeless, huge high ceilings, giant doors, antique furniture. Bathroom was... More

This fabulous hotel is located at Modica Alta, which means a steep walk down the hill to the main part of the old town. That fact is counter balanced by superb views down the valley. The room was spacious with antique furniture and all the usual features of a luxury hotel. Staff were very helpful and went out of their... More

Really lovely hotel in Modica with a great sicilian feel. We had the junior suite with 2 balconies- perfect for people watching in the evenings! Laura and Julia at Reception were so helpful booking taxis and restaurant reservations for us. Fantastic breakfast - lots of choice, and even gorgeous tiramisu if you want. (we did!) locanda colonello and gazza ladra... More
