First of all, we were asked to upgrade to a more expensive room because of no availability. when we arrived there was no other guest than us. Secondly, we booked the hotel because of the Spa, but when we arrived they told us that that day the spa broke. Reading other reviews it got quite obvious that the spa was not usable for at least three months. We could the „gym“, which only was two very old bicycles. Moreover the WiFi was only working at the reception and the breakfast was very unsatisfying, considering that’s is a four stars plus hotel. Cappuccino was an instant Cappuccino and they didn’t have any fresh thing to eat. Furthermore there was no parking and we could only park outside on the street and had to pay. Our wellness holiday was ruined. Cannot recommend this hotel at all.…
Very pleasant staff. Central location. Room wierd dark oppressive. Bar across street with blaring TV showing football to crowds of watchers ruined my evening. Bathroom dark and damp.Breakfast every bit as wierd and unsettling. Why is it so difficult to get citrus real juice in Sicily!
quaint nice and clean. very central, good area close to chocolate makers :) good inexpensive restaurants within walking distance and the staff go out of their way to help. Highly recommendable though I would'nt book with breakfast next time, better go for a little walk and plenty of choice round every corner
Hi. Room was ok, bed was comfortable. House is 400 years old. Breakfast was good. There is a spa (sauna + small pool) but you need to pay for it. 15 euros. No fitness. Good location. A bit expensive though.
Had one of my worst experience to date with this hotel. We had reserved and paid for a room through Expedia and upon arriving it had been given away (double booked). The real mistake came after as no one was there to supervise the hotel. No one!!! Unbelievable, we could of stolen anything. We called the cell number and no answer. We finally after one hour got someone on the phone. No excuses... no help. No refund!!! The just unbelievable. Worst we found out this is a regular occurrence in this hotel as the whole town jokes about it. I recommend you stay at the beautiful hotel de mohar instead as we ended up doing. It ruined our evening in Modica and since we did not even get an apology, I will remember this forever.
My room was very comfortable and complete with ac, tv and a spacious shower. The staff is very courteous and helpful. I had asked before arriving if there was an iron available. When we arrived I was told that they had found an iron for me! I will definitely visit again. The price was very low and the location ideal. There are many cafes and wonderful restaurants. If you wish to use the spa it, they must know in advance and can also arrange for a massage.
Firstly, I've seen some rather bewildering reviews of this hotel from other travellers complaining about the breakfast which I do not understand. The breakfast served (buffet style) consisted of bread, rolls, jams and preserves, Itaiian croissants (i.e. filled), yoghurts, fruit tarts, cake, a platter of cold meats and salamis, tomatoes and mozzarella,boiled eggs, breakfast cereals, a selection of teas and coffee made to order. The only thing not provided was a cooked breakfast (fried egg, bacon, etc) -- and in light of what was otherwise offered, how could anyone complain of tha? The hotel itself was beautiful, comfortable, staffed by non-professional but helpful and friendly people who all had an interest in our comfort and were forthcoming with suggestions about what to do, when to do it, how to do it, etc. They also knew the history of the building, a very old building, adapted at the turn of the 19th century, then again 10 or 12 years ago. Rooms were confortable (we saw two or three), beds comfortable and although it is all pastiche reconstruction the work has been done with taste and imagination and with Sicilian materials and furniture. I'm not a great fan of tiled floors but the tiled floors were beautiful and when my feet got told I wore bedroom slippers and turned on the heat. Easy. Bathroom was very much Italian/designer, very beautiful to look at but less than 100% practical, but that was a small grumble. Wonderful place. and incidentally, would recommend Modica as a place to stay -- more beautiful than expected, full of architectural pleasures plus a working theatre (and chocolate in abundance!), good food, and because it is on the flat it is an easier place to explore (for those with old legs and feet) than the hillier Ragusa, another baroque city. …
Nice, Barocco style hotel with the feeling as old time people were living Nice location, nice interior and exterior. Different colors of the rooms that are very suitable with old original furniture. The boy on reception is friendly and speaks several languages!
Look, I want to be really generous to these guys because they're trying so hard, and the staff are delightful and the building is a wonderful piece of local heritage. But the truth is that the room (the red suite) was very expensive for what it is. On the plus side, it's right in the middle of town, the bed was comfy and the room was very well cleaned. On the downside, putting a bath in the bedroom is only a romantic gesture if you also put a shower in the bathroom; the room was stuffy and the air con couldn't solve this; and a rather dingy because it only has a single window in the bedroom and another in the sitting room, each of which is high up and small looking out onto (well, up into) a tiny sidestreet. Breakfast was okay, bit short on variety, but what was there was good. And we slept well, and that's the main point of a hotel I guess. Watch out: we wanted to use the "spa" but were told that you had to book it in advance and there was only availability the following day. Since we were leaving the following morning, we decided to give that a miss, which was sad as it had originally been one of the reasons we chose the hotel. Perhaps we missed something written somewhere which notified us, but it would have been nice to have been told at check-in that we needed to book. Most of the above is soluble, perhaps with the exception of the dinginess of the room.…
beautiful arty hotel in the center of Modica. Actually, a little bit too old... Based on the pictures and reviews in internet, we booked the room with the bath tube near the bed. Although we travelled to Sicily in May, it rained quite often so the room was incredibly wet and we had to use the heating all day long. So having the bath tube in the bedroom was not so nice (and taking a shower not so comfortable) . Above all the room was dark as the windows were oriented toward a tiny back street. Poor breakfast.
