Our first visit to Sicily started with Mt Etna erupting out of the blue and delaying our arrival by a day. We chose this hotel using Trivago and we weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary. We managed to squeeze the hired car through the archway leading to this hotel in the middle of the city. From the moment we entered the small reception area, we were transported into 5 days of ecstasy (i.e we had a lovely time).The rooms were tastefully decorated, the beds comfortable, large windows that looked out on to the inner courtyard. The lighting could have been better but this added to the charm of this boutique hotel in an ancient house, converted from one part of a large convent, with tunnels leading to the cathedral next door. Breakfast was a fantastic experience, with a large variety of Italian cakes, fruits and drinks. The architecture of the dinning area was in keeping with the baroque building. The receptionist and waiters were very friendly and attentive. Although there were other guests staying in the hotel (Americans, Italians, British), their presence was hardly felt. All in all, we had a lovely stay and I am sure we will go back to Ragusa and this hotel. There is so much to see in and around Ragusa.
