Old building refurbished in minimal fashion. In a back street that's not too attractive. You can park for free in a side street. The hotel is elegant but sparse and therefore feels a little "cold". Receptionists helpful, and breakfast great. The only drawback is that the really old part of town is Ragusa Ibla looks close on the map but it is a 25 min walk downhill ( yes, coming back is exhausting) or $15 by taxi. I would recommend staying in Ragusa Ibla.
