“Higly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

OK, FH was one of the hotels during our 14 days stay in Sicily. We liked it so much and it is on our Top 3 list. Design hotel on the old 'Binario 4' in Modica where you will be offered a 'cioccolata di Modica', very good breakfast (excellent restaurant - minimalistic design of the restaurant with the old locomotive dominating the room, reminding you how it was before...), spacy rooms, electric bikes for hotel guests etc. By the way, let me say after 7 days it is not easy to go through the day after tipical Italian breakfast (you know, sugar+sugar+sugar+su...). I mean, we adore Italy and the lifestyle, especially cuisine, but we started to miss things like eggs and prosciutto which are more exception than standard in most of the hotels. In FH it is standard (they even serve almond milk which is deliciouuuus).
I am telling you, you will like it. The reason more - FH is completely different than the accomdation you would expect at the old 'binario' (platform).

We booked a superior room, but got a standard room. When we complained about this, we where told that the standard room was "upgraded" to a superior du to an extra chair in the room.
Unfortunately this did not match the description found on the hotel webpage.
Staff was lacking English skills, and not willing to find a solution to our problem.
Unfortunately we had such a bad experience with this hotel, so we decided to check out the day we arrived.

The room had a foul smell of sewage. Cleaning was lacking in the bathroom, where hair could be found on the floor and in the shower, where edges also was foul of lime and dirt.

The hotel is relatively new and with a central location next to the train station, but quite a walk from the centre of Modica, especially on a hot day.
Free WiFi only works in the lobby area. Parking is free outside the hotel.

Room Tip: A standard room offers same comfort as a superior room.

Pippinu, Direttore at FerroHotel, responded to this review, 24 August 2011
Dear Guest,

we are truly sorry for not being able to provide a quality service.

But we must point out that we have two types of Superior rooms: a room type with special furniture and other, the one assigned to You, larger than six square meters and with a large picture window in the bathroom.

It had never happened an error of inattention, as you can see from the many previous comments, and for this we apologize again.

FerroHotel is the renovation of a "white elephant", an abandoned building for years, which made the environment much more ugly.

Many guests, for this, to have upgraded the environment, we appreciate every day.

We hope you will accept our apologies, best regards

the hotel manager

Two years ago we discovered the FerroHotel which is situated near the seldom used train station. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is modern designed, comfortable and quiet. A very good breakfast and a helpfull and friendly staff did help us to spend a nice stay at Modica.

Hotel has a modern design located next to a disused platform of Modica railway station. No need to be alarmed by location as it is particularly quiet. I think all rooms are the same. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms had lovely bathrooms and showers. Full satellite TV available. Good breakfast.
There was free high speed internet but staff did not seem to know how to get you signed on.

Stayed here in off season to visit Modica and surrounding area. Right by train station and could walk to town if you needed (we had a car). Had plenty of free parking. Free internet. Very nice staff who spoke good english. Large, comfortable room. Very modern design. Beautiful bathroom but with typical european half shower door so it is impossible not to get floor wet! Sunflower shower head. Very low sink. Very nice breakfast of fruit/cereal/yogurt/meat/cheese/croissants/local almond cookies and the famous Modica chocolate. We ate one nite in their restaurant and it was delicious! Chef is from Napoli and prepared a wonderful meal.

This hotel is situated right next to Modica train station and is themed accordingly. Our room was lovely: bright, comfortable and clean, with a good bed and a modern bathroom. The atmosphere throughout the building was satisfactory for all the senses, thanks to the smart decoration, cool lighting, soft music, a subtle scent and the appropriate temperature. We arrived late and were offered the choice of dining at the hotel. Despite the fact that there was no menu in English or much dish variety to speak of, the sea food we had was of good quality, the chef keen to impress, and the pleasant restaurant complete with an old locomotive engine! In the morning, breakfast was served in the same area, included cappuccinos and some delicious sweet options, but was on the whole limited, especially on the savoury side. One hopes that once this hotel becomes better established and operates closer to full capacity, it will be able to provide better breakfast and dinner variety. Overall, however, we would not consider any other hotel if we were to return to Modica any time soon. It offers fantastic value for money (facilities include free parking and internet access) and is the perfect place to spend a couple of nights in order to explore this part of Sicily.
