A very cozy and ancient looking hotel. We stayed there only for a day. Hotel manager was very helpful, polite and well-mannered. We stayed in a family room, witch was quite spacious. Unfortunately we have stayed there in a very hot weather. Air conditions wasn't working properly and it was very hot. The nearby street was very busy even at...

We went to Modica for a night and spent in this historical hotel. The room we stayed was a but odd and dark. However the service was really excellent. Lorenzo was always helpful and made our stay pleasant. The only problem we had was the diversion of the road. It took us 90mins to get out of town in the...

We were upgraded to the Bishop's Room, which is beautiful if a bit formal--felt rather like we were staying in a doll's house! Nevertheless, it was nice to have the small balcony. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was great (one of our best) with buffalo mozzarella and fresh orange juice. One of us felt the bathroom was...

This is a quirky place, oddly shaped rooms, crazy color schemes, super-odd lobby and a difficult breakfast area. I've not seen any other hotel in town but I suspect this may be among the top five. What separates it from others may be Lorenzo and Sylvia. Two super smart desk clerks who will make your stay welcome. The place is...

Grana Barocco Art Hotel is IT! Enough have been said about the elegance and most central location of the hotel by previous reviewers, but you have to experience it yourself. Beautiful decorations, perfect location, good soundproofing, sumptuous breakfast. A stunning feature is the glass floor in the cellar where the breakfast is served. You can actually see stone elements of...

Although we made the reservation only one day in advance, the front desk was extremely kind and accommodated us with a couple of choices. In April, of course, this was possible. The rooms are so elegant, while providing every convenience in the bathroom and sitting room. We had a small balcony looking right out on the main street. Closing the...
