The two most usual complaints about this hotel are: first, that it is difficult to find and to park at and, secondly, that a number of the rooms are inconvenient. Our observations on the first of these two matters is that it is not difficult if one comes, as we did, from the west (eg Comiso) but it certainly does seem difficult from other directions. (Incidentally, Global Maps do a good town plan of Ragusa, normally available at Stanfords.) As to the rooms, what is needed is for the owners to do a thorough review of the situation; for instance, in our room (number 4, I think) the air conditioning did not cool the upper level and there was no ventilation up there.
Having said that, we had a very good stay. The staff worked very hard to assist us, dealing with the parking and getting a large fan from another house late at night to cool our bedroom area. The Reception staff dealt with all sorts of questions for us - restaurant bookings, public transport from Ragusa Ibla, visits etc etc. And the breakfast staff took great pains to ensure that we had an excellent start to the day even when we were rather late. We were very grateful.
We were also very appreciative of the pool - a rarity in Ragusa. Also, the location of the hotel by the steps to the old town made it easy for us to visit Ibla (and return by bus) as well as enjoying the buildings and shops of the upper town.
