“A good find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Antonella was wonderfully helpful in every way. She made reservations for us in restaurants and helped us decide where to go each day. Stephaniia was also extremely helpful to us especially when we had to find a tyre garage as we had a puncture. And Patricia actually walked us down to the road we had to take to reach the centre of Ibla so that we didn't get lost. The whole atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit, yoghurts, cakes, toast etc. Each room has the use of a shelf in the fridge in the breakfast area. Other reviews have mentioned the small breakfast area, but Antonella asked each night what time we would like to have breakfast in order to avoid too many of us being there at the same time so it was never a problem. Parking was excellent and the location meant we were never far from the main road network for all our excursions and only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Ibla and about 20-25 mins (up the steps) from Superiore.
We had the earth suite which is down some steps and which is very spacious with a comfortable bed and a powerful shower.
I would definitely recommened staying here.
The reason I have dropped a point against cleanliness is as follows - When we arrived the room was beautifully clean. There is a sign saying towels and bed linens are changed only every two days. I don't mind this but I like the option of a daily change of towels (especially as the cost here was the same as a 3* hotel in the centre of Ibla). We stayed for six days and the bed was changed on the fourth day. I also felt the room was not really thoroughly cleaned during our stay - although it was spotless on our arrival and of course with only 2 of us staying it didn't exactly get dirty, I still felt the daily clean could have been more thorough.

A fantastic place and a real find for our trip. I picked this via the internet and it really surpassed my expectations. Very friendly and helpful staff, great rooms and a great location, especially if you have a car. Being at the edge of Ragusa Ibla we could walk easily everywhere and also have quiet and privacy. The rooms were large and well appointed. A real oasis to relax after the hassle of a long drive. We arrived unknowingly on festival evening and the staff helped us to get into town, found us a parking spot and booked a restaurant on our behalf. I'd love to visit again and I recommend it very highly.

I followed a sign for a B&B and they were full. The owner call A Casa di Grazia and there was a room. I couldn't ask for a nicer place AND it had free parking! It was a really nice contrast to the city around it as the B&B is very modern and extremely functional. Quiet, convenient, great host, good breakfast with lots of food options, reasonable price and parking. Really couldn't ask for more.

The B&B in the corner of beautiful Ragusa Ibla, just below the rock of Ragusa Superiora.
So you have in walking distance both of them - like 15-20mins to Piazza Duomo of Ibla and a good long climbing to Superiora.

The four rooms are designed with the 4 elements in mind, with carefully selected colours, even logos designed, etc.

The only downside I can confirm is that the kitchen is really small, so if all the four rooms are rented, it might be complicated to arrange the breakfast. Fortunately during our stay only two rooms were taken, so this was not an issue.

Room Tip: "Earth" is in the basement - a junior suite. The level of entrance has "Fire" an...

We rented 3 rooms with friends (2 couples from Belgium and 1 couple from Holland), celebrating New Year's eve in Ragusa Ibla and stayed there for 4 nights. A casa di Grazia is an excellent place in a beautiful town. The service is super and very personal: one cannot expect better! The breakfast is also great but we were lacking some space all of us wanted to have bf at the same time. Nvertheless, definitely a much better place than a traditional hotel!

A Casa di Grazia is a nice base to explore Ragusa Ibla and the surrounding towns. It's well situated i.e. just off the highway. And yet, the B&B is very quiet. Parking spots, monitored by the B&B's cctv, are available behind the building.

We stayed at the Earth Suite and it's very spacious. The bathroom is well appointed and is stocked with quality toiletries. Wi-fi isn't available in the room but you can still get internet by cable, which the B&B can provide. Breakfast buffet is simple but tasty.

Room Tip: The suites are very spacious. Earth suite is at the lowest level.

A wonderful place to stay in Ragusa. Intimate, friendly, very clean, and although it is in an old building, is brilliantly modern and well-designed. The Earth Room is large and has lots of storage room. Perfect location in terms of walking access to Ibla and the new city, and the road in from the highway - the ease of finding it and the free parking were a bonus. Self-serve breakfast was lovely. Very friendly and helpful staff.
