The De Stefano Palace Hotel is a conversion of an old building that had to maintain certain historic features due to government restrictions. This can limit the flexibility of the architects and can affect things like size of elevator, acoustics, placement of outlets, flooring materials, etc. This charming hotel became our home base for 3 nights. While the exterior is... More

The DeStefano has a good location, near the cathedral, restaurants and a grocery store, but there are so many stairs! Evidently, it was a former palace at one time, and converted recently. Our room, #34, faces the back and is very quiet and very small. We couldn't even open the closet door all the way because it was so close... More

Quiet & comfortable. The hotel staff were professional, efficient and friendly. I thought my... More

The hotel has some beautiful artistic ideas but I wish it had stuck to basics. Rooms are super small, and there is absolutely no counter space in the bathroom for putting personal items. We got creative and balanced our toiletries on the top of the wide facet. Additionally, they put in hotshots in the shower, so the water temperature kept... More

Wonderful Coffees and specialty lattes/cappuccinos were custom ordered. Fresh seasonal fruits were plentiful. Breakfast made a great start to each day. Hotel was very centrally located between old and new town and nearby restaurants. Rooms were unique depending... More

A beautiful luxury hotel in the "new" part of Ragusa. Difficult to find your way through the one-way system, but once found the hotel gives a parking pass for local streets. The rom is one of the most luxurious we have stayed in, with lots of space and quality fittings. The bathroom was not huge but well laid out and... More

If in the region this hotel should be on your must stay list. The hotel is located near the old part of Ragusa, only a 10 minute walk with several quality restaurants only 5 minutes walk. The hotel is beautifully presented, old outside charm with a modern and clean designer finish inside. The staff were extremely accommodating with no questions... More
