Well, the B&B description doesn't lie. There is, indeed, a 40 stairs flight awaiting you before you arrive but let not this scare you as you will be rewarded. Antonio, the owner, obviously knows Modica from top to bottom and will give you all the guidance you need to see the jewels of his town. He also knows a fair...

The owner of the hotel was really nice and very accommodating. I made an error in my reservation and he showed us all the available rooms in the hotel and gave us the prices so we could choose what we wanted best. The rooms were clean and utilitarian. He gave us great recommendations for dinner and places to see in...

Lovely hotel, great views of a beautiful town, and a very cordial and welcoming proprietor. But - be prepared for some serious cardio workouts. From street level to the hotel entrance you need to hike up about 90 steps. And most of the rooms are higher still. Pack light!

Hotel is located conveniently on the main street in town and our room had a small balcony with a very nice view of the upper part of town. The GPS does not locate this hotel well so you have to pay attention to the instructions the hotel gives you and look for the bank (it's towards the end of the...

The owner, Antonio, was so friendly and accommodating and fluent in English. My first morning, I slept through breakfast after a long travel night, and he had saved food for me when I emerged. He also personally phoned Alitalia multiple times for me and arranged delivery of a lost suitcase. He was very helpful in directing us to locations, creating...

The host couldn't have been more helpful with directions, recommendations and any other information that we needed. We had a great one night stay in a lovely comfortable bed. We felt spoilt by the amazing view of Modica from our room

The Hotel Relais Modica (HRM) is a wonderful place to base yourself in Modica. The location is very close to St Peters and it's a great spot. Once you get to know Modica you will understand that the steps to the hotel aren't really that many but it might surprise you at first! If you have mobility problems I would...

We really loved our 4 night stay in Modica, one of the Sicilian baroque towns and the Relais Modica was such a great place to base ourselves to explore the area from. Antonio looked after us with breakfast every morning, helping us with Italian and with really good suggestions for places to visit around the area. Our room was spacious,...

We greatly enjoyed our two night stay at the Relais Modica. Our room was bright, very spacious (a triple, as no double was available for our dates), and sparkling clean, with a good-sized bathroom attached. The best feature of course was our little balcony with absolutely stunning views over Modica and across to the Cathedral..........this view however comes at a...

Hotel is a little hard to find - do not use Google maps which is completely wrong. Make sure you find the small sign to the hotel in the Main Street before climbing any stairs. Rooms are clean and spacious and the owner speaks good English and is very hospitable. Breakfast was below average compared to other places in Sicily....

We received this book review just yesterday and we were a little surprised. We will try to answer step by step because we do not see any complain about the hotel except a little note on the breakfast, but we consider this like a personal opinion. About google map, we have several times informed the direction of Google about the...
