We stayed in the Dependence with the Jacuzzi bath and huge bathroom, perfect for relaxing after travels. The service was good and the hotel restaurant below had excellent food and service.

My husband and I stayed at the Palazzo for three nights. The surroundings are elegant, our room was beautiful with a wonderful painted ceiling and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The choices at breakfast were amazing and would suit any appetite. Whilst staying you must try Locanda del Colonnello which is run by Georgio Failla. The food was... More

Our satnav located the hotel easily, thankfully, bacause the street layout in Modica is very tangled. The hotel is old-fashioned but pleasant and comfortable: perhaps it could do with a new coat of paint, as it were. The staff were friendly and helpful but there were not many of them around. It was possible to sit at the bar and... More

On a touring holiday of Sicily staying at 5 different hotels. This one was our favourite. An old stylish hotel where service and courtesy matters. Situated in the centre of the high bit of the town. Don't worry about parking, they will park for you. Our room was perfect, not the height of luxury but comfortable and quite grand with... More

The Failla family is running this 10-room hotel which is a lovely palazzo in Modica. High ceilings, old style furnishings, very atmospheric. Also very comfortable. They recommended a restaurant - Accurzio - which was the highlight of our Sicily restaurant exploration. Overall, great experience.

First off, how cool to stay in an old palazzo, with much of the furnishings being original. It's a beautiful building with grand rooms, high ceilings, tile floors, marble staircases, and our room even had a frescoed ceiling. The bathroom has been renovated very nicely, but had a faint odor common to old buildings. Our room faced the street, but... More

We stayed for a week in the annex. We had flown into Comiso and arrived late on Friday night. Parking at the hotel was a problem but every night the staff managed to find a space for us. Everybody was extremely helpful. Unusual decorated room but plenty of space. Need to have a sat nav or a very good map... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palazzo Failla Hotel is a four star hotel, located in a beautiful XVIII century building, not an unusual example in Modica indeed, which has been perfectly restored thanks to local skilled craftsmen. The Faillas, showing the typical hospitality of their land, decided to open their house to their guests. The moment you enter, you can feel a fascinating atmosphere given by the light scent of the ancient stone walls and the pitch stone floor, typical of this area. The exclusive furniture and refined decorations will give the final touch to an unforgettable stay. Palazzo Failla Hotel is located in Modica Alta, in Via Blandini, near two of the most beautiful architectural examples in Modica, such as St. George's Cathedral and the Earls' Castle.
