Hotel Principe d'Aragona
Ranked #8 of 18 Hotels in Modica
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 20, 2008

I spent 3 days in this hotel and had a lovely experience.
It is a short walking distance from the centre of the beautiful baroque city of Modica with all it's shops, restaurants and historical attractions. The bus terminus for services to Catania and other cities in Sicily is also a few metres away.
The reception staff are friendly and helpful.
The hotel is clean and modern, with a pleasant sun terrace and swimming pool.
The rooms are also spacious and clean with very modern facilities.
Breakfasts are also sumptuous with cheeses, hams, fresh rolls, cakes, croissants and the typical dark Modica chocolate.
I would certainly recommend a stay in the hotel and a visit to Modica where you can breathe Baroque in every step!!

Reviewed April 12, 2008

We used this hotel as our base for exploring the baroque cities of Modica, Noto, and Ragusa Ibla. Modica is a lovely city, and this hotel is on the edge of the lower town. The hotel, with a huge, American style sign and stand alone presence, is very easy to find and a great location from which to get into and out of town if you're driving. I believe having a car is necessary here, and there is a large, free car park.

The rooms are quite small and seem best suited to the business traveler who is only sleeping there. The room isn't big enough for two people to walk around freely--we had to take turns. Other than a small straight back chair, there is no place to sit or relax after a long day of touring. The lighting in the bathroom is horrible--very dim, cold fluorescent light is made the whole room, actually very nicely appointed, seem very grim.

The staff assistance was variable--very polite, especially on check-in, but there seemed to be only one recommendation for dinner, a restaurant down the street that serves very traditional (plain) Sicilian food. It was nice, but once was enough. A request for a different recommendation provoked a started response, as if this question had never been previously considered.

The breakfast was fine, but the server was openly unhappy in her work on both mornings we were there--we had to corral her to request cappucini and knew clearly that we were bothering her.
