“Magical place to stay”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

It's a small hotel in Sicily, so don't expect everything to happen right away. But, the staff go out of their way to make each guest feel special. The rooms are charming and the location is fantastic.

A very a famiglia feel. No matter what official duty they had, each staff person would help you with whatever you needed.

Was there with a very "high maintenance" group who were universally satisfied. If they can please them, a normal person will truly feel special.

Room Tip: Definitely have a drink or a meal on the terrace overlooking the cathedral across the street. The s...

Just one night was enough to decide to visit this place again. Wonderful people, food, wines. Perfect for romance, adventures discovering Ibla downtown.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, ask to stay on same elevator floors level.

We stayed 5 nights at the Antica Badia hotel and truly enjoyed our stay. The building itself is historic and charming - you feel like royalty in the dining area. Our room was small but very comfortable. The furnishings are very nice and modern and the jacuzzi shower was good fun. The best part is the staff. At the front desk they handle any request cheerfully and have many good suggestions on sightseeing. We ate breakfast each day and several dinners at the hotel and always the food was excellent and the service fantastic. Of the 3 hotels we stayed at this trip to Sicily this was the best and also the lowest cost. It is also a short walk and many stairs to Ragusa Ibla so no need to drive inside the city.

Spent 16 days in Sicily and passed through Ragusa. This was one of the nicest hotels I stayed at in so many ways. The friendliest of service at the front desk (2 young gentleman and 1 young lady) and a lovely breakfast (the server from Oaxaca, Mexico was a charm). The hotel is an old residence and feel like you are in a castle long ago, lovely room, cozy and tasteful decoration, and good location (walk to the bottom of the hill gives you a stunning view of Ragusa Ibla). Also, across from a beautiful cathedral. The service is what put it over the top. Well done.

This is a boutique hotel in the center of Ragusa, located in restored palace. Public spaces looked impressive, but NOT the Junior Suite we had! In my book this would rather be a "small dark room". What was even worse, apparently it was located close to the washing machines which the staff started to operate at 7 am!

I would strongly advise to have a look at the room before you take it.
