Charming little hotel on a charming little town

Posted 30-Jul-2015
The hotel is on Ragusa Ibla, the lower town, which has the Duomo and where tourists are more likely to linger. Upper Ragusa is accessible on foot. The hotel owners run a Michelin-starred restaurant in the vicinity, but the reception desk was kind enough to recommend two trattorias with more traditional fare. My room was fairly tiny, particularly the bathroom, the design of which required some ingenuity due to the very limited space available. Still, a very convenient option for a stop-over on this charming little town.

Tiny, friendly hotel

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: Character
Location: In the World heritage area of Ragusa Ibla. There is a beach about ten miles away where the hotel has a private area.
When full this hotel has 22 guests, it must have nearly as many staff. It is built into the side of the hill, like most things in Ragussa Ibla and hence has a lot of stairs but it is worth climbing them to get to the characterful rooms. Breakfast, which is on offer for four hours in the morning, has a wide range of cheeses, cold meat, cakes fruit and yoghurt. Plus fruit juice tea/ coffee etc. We had a nightmare journey to Sicily, entirely the fault of Rome airport The hotel staff, who had booked us a taxi from the airport, kept in touch with us and the taxi driver so that when we finally arrived seven hours late, the taxi was still waiting and reception staff were available to greet us. What more could you ask for?

Not a 4star hotel really a glorified B&B

Posted 24-Jun-2014
Pros: The staff were helpful and courteous
Cons: It would require a total revamp and especially with regard to the standard of breakfast. Taken into account it's sister Michelin starred Restaurant.
Location: The centre of Ragusa is a pleasant easy walk along lovely narrow road emerging into the main square next to the Duomo.Ragusa is brilliant.
The Private Beach at Ragusa Marina is an Extra which you have to pay for, so in reality it has no facilities if you exclude the Bar/Breakfast Room. The standard of breakfast fare was extremely poor the same every morning with the choice of fruit reducing as the week progressed. The shower was so small u could hardly turn around and the quality of the bathroom facilities poor. Overall very poor value for the money and a hugh disappointment

Atmospheric Hotel

Posted 23-Jun-2014
This is a great base from which to explore wonderfully quaint Ragusa. It is a 10 minute stroll up and down hill to the Piazza del Duomo; just far enough to make you feel like you're living in the city. The breakfast is great, excellent pastries; I wish we would have a few more mornings to try them all. My only complaint is the shotty internet, which only really worked in the lobby.

Parking situation is difficult. Only three places near hotel and even in winter they can be full. Otherwise very nice place.

Bella esperienza

Posted 05-Jan-2014 on Hotels
Siamo tornati dopo qualche anno e l'esperienza è stata molto piacevole fatta eccezione per la posizione della camera, sulla strada e quindi rumorosa. La camera inoltre era un po' troppo calda. Per il resto ottimo hotel, ottimo servizio e, straconsigiiato, il ristorante dell'albergo, eccezionale.

スタンダードルームはお勧めしません

Posted 02-Jan-2014 on Hotels
雑誌にも掲載された素敵なホテルです。洞窟のような雰囲気にひかれて宿泊を決めたのですが、スタンダードルームだったため、部屋の中は通常の壁で洞窟らしさはゼロ。バスなし部屋からの眺望は身を乗り出すと街並みが見える程度で植木にはタバコの吸い殻がたくさ入っており、興ざめしました。また、レストランは、事前に予約されることをお勧めします。到着時当日の予約は満席で無理でした。せっかくこのホテル泊まるなら、少し奮発してデラックスやスイートに宿泊されることをお勧めします。スタンダードでしたら、せっかく無理してここまで来たのにとがっかりするかもしれません。
