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...

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....

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...

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...

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....

This was one of the most delightful hotels I stayed in while travelling round Sicily. Modica is under World Heritage, it's a tiny town, easy to walk around, the people so friendly and honest. My room was like stepping back in time, beautifully decorated, and clean. Perfect location right in Main Street. I arrived around 3-4 pm which was ideal,...

Beautiful boutique hotel in the center of Modica, that fits very well into the baroque Val di Noto region. All major sights of Modica are in walking distance from the hotel - if you are ready to climb up the hill. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was (of course) old-fashioned but functional. It fit the theme. It...
