This is a lovely place to stay. Elena and her husband really go the extra mile for their visitors! We felt so welcome and happy at their beautiful palazzo in this wonderful location. The breakfasts on the pretty terrace were deliciously memorable, and our room was huge and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean. We would return here in a heartbeat.

It's fantastic to be able to stay in such a historic building that has been in the owners' family for generations and kept in such a loving way. Elena was fantastic - so helpful and even provided us with some homemade treats at breakfast on both days. Sitting out on the terrace is a joy - amazing view and so... More

The lovely Elena (owner) makes this place really special. This old Palazzo is owned and run by the family and is brilliantly situated in Ragusa Ibla. Breakfasts are excellent and the rooms spotless. It really is like staying in someone's home. The little terrace is delightful and you can munch your breakfast of yummy homemade jams whilst gazing out across... More

Situated at the second floor of an old house, the place is nicely decorated having a charming vintage look and giving you a cosy feeling. We got just everything we are looking for at a B&B: a place with a local touch, a chat during the tasty breakfast with a friendly host, tips about places to go/ restaurants to try.... More

Hello, thank you for your review. Because of Ragusa Ibla is the historical centre of Ragusa, it is a “traffico limitato” and there are a lot of signals to forbidden the acces to non-resident and non-authorized. The pass that we give to our guests at their arrival is the same that every other hotel of the historical centre gives to... More

This family-run accommodation does fully convince with an absolutely overwhelming hospitality provided by the owners and their obvious passion to make their guests feel at home. I have never experienced a breakfast in Sicily as sumptuous as this one, exclusively composed of home-made deli food. Apart from a really huge terrace offering spectacular views of the city, the old Palazzo... More

No need to look any further for your accommodation in Ragusa Ibla. Elena is simply lovely. She and her husband met us in the free car park below the town and delivered us and our luggage to our room so we didn't have to squeeze our hire car through the narrow streets. All the rooms are on the second (top)... More

We loved our four nights here. We were on the top floor, in a beautiful large room, with a painted ceiling and tiled floor. The bathroom was immaculately clean with very modern fittings, lovely shower. The balcony where you have breakfast is wonderful because of the stunning view of Ragusa. Elena is lovely and gives you advice on places to... More
