The photos do not do justice to this hotel. It is set into the hillside of the beautiful Ragusa. The main entrance is in the valley bottom with a second entrance at street level on the hilltop. Some might find this challenging but there is a lift and staff are very helpful. Rooms are modest size but have modern decor... More

This 4 star hotel hugs the escapement of the Ibla hill. The lower level entry is via a vehicular roadway (a bit hard to find) whereas the top level exits to a quiet pedestrian/car shared cobbled laneway one block in from the main town pedestrian spine. Thus the location is very convient yet quiet. We had a room on level... More

Very nicely built in a very modern style. The entrance (from the road) is very surprising (I like it), the rooms are nice, but the best is probably the breakfast, not for the food but for the view...surprise

A recently-refurbished, modern hotel that is extremely close to the historical centre of Ragusa Ibla. The San Giorgio palace is also good value, clean, and easily accessible. Parking is limited, but this is Sicily, so this is true almost everywhere. Rooms are reasonably spacious and are very comfortable, and the beds are excellent.

I highly recommend San Giorgio Palace hotel. The rooms are beautiful, smart, comfortable. The staff is attentive, friendly, and helpful. The setting is spectacular. My group of 5 stayed here -- we each loved the hotel and our rooms. They serve a wonderful breakfast on their spacious terrace overlooking stunning scenery. And are very close to the center of town.
