“Palazzo Castro Al Duomo Ragusa Ibla Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We stayed here for one night in June 2012.The accommodation is in a beautiful palazzo on the cathedral square in Ragusa Ibla and we found the stay a very special experience. The family that own the palazzo were really helpful regarding our stay and gave us a very warm welcome. They also took time to show us around the other parts of the palazzo, including the garden and terraces, and were happy to share their knowledge regarding the history of the building and the town as well as other parts of Sicily.

The room that we stayed in was very spacious, with a balcony that overlooked the square (but there was no problem with noise). The accommodation was beautifully decorated and presented. The bedroom featured hand painted antique floor tiles, a frescoed ceiling, and oak furniture. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was clean, spacious and modern, with a great shower. The remainder of the palazzo was equally as stunning. The traditional and delicious breakfast was provided in a room that overlooked the scented garden in the palazzo's central courtyard. The owners kindly arranged for us to be able to park our hire car close to the accommodation. The building had a lift which made taking luggage up to the rooms easy.

If you are visiting Ragusa this should be your first choice of accommodation.

We stayed just one night. I would live to stay more. The town is lovely and the B&B is just perfect, all you could ask in a B&B. Location is the best you could had. It is a family palace located by the Duomo in the main square. Hospitality is great.It is run by 2 sisters. One of them explained us all the history of the house and their father who decorated and restored many of the furniture of the house. Room was beautifully decorated, with lovely ceiling and floor and it was huge. Breakfast i still remember it. By a gorgeous patio with orange and lemon trees The fresh and warm ricotta with honey i wil never forget. Also the ricotta pie made by one of the sisters was delicious. everything was fresh and homemade. This is what i like in a breakfast. Great coffee and just squezeed orange juice.
In summary a 10 out of 10. Congratulations

We unfortunately only stayed one night but this is a magical place run by Erminia and her mother. The palace is full of works of art created by Erminia's father and some by Erminia herself. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms large (everything works!). Our (and I think all rooms) have views of Ragusa Ibla's cathedral square. We were there on palm Sunday and were able to watch the procession from our balcony. The breakfast is full of local and family specialities served by Erminia and her delightful mother. Would have loved to stay another couple of nights wrapped in the unique atmosphere of the palazzo and Ragusa Ibla.

Room Tip: With a view of the square!

Very charming place to stay, although a little bit worn mattresses in beds, but apart from this everything was excellent. Lies next to the cathedral and close to everything. Very nice sicilian breakfast and very nice and knowledgeable host. If you do not mind paying cash it is the place to stay.
