Spent a couple of nights in the hotel and overall, pretty good. I had the Mandorla room and getting to it gave you a flavour of the historic building, though the room itself was nothing special, the only view being the wall of a neighbouring property. However, it had everything I needed, was reasonably spacious and quiet at night. The hotel is easy to locate on the main Corso Italia, well located for Ragusa Ibla (if you're okay with the climb back up!), and for some of the less touristy, and probably better quality, restaurants to be found in Ragusa Superiore. The staff were always extremely friendly and courteous, and Ignazio gave me helpful advice. I stay in Sicily a lot, often for long periods, and for me breakfast is basically coffee and a cornetto. The hotel breakfast offered a great array of meats, flans, fruit, croissants et cetera well presented and in lovely surroundings, but the one thing during my stay that I didn't see was cornetti, ideally with the lovely ricotta filling. That said, think they had everything else!

Very friendly staff, they went out of their way to help. We had a lovely room with a big balcony, the room is named Magnolia. Such a unique building in a great location for getting around, would stay again when next in Sicily.

Ignazio is a perfect helpful employee. We have liked furniture and architecture of this palace. The place is calm, silent, like in a dream. The spa is private, with a warm and peaceful atmosphere. We can only recommend such a hotel.

We spent three nights at the Antica Badia Hotel and had a very enjoyable stay.
Our room the Violetta was a comfortable size and the bathroom was big and modern.
The common areas are all decorated in the original palace style and you feel like you have entered another century. Breakfast was particularly enjoyable and we could have
unlimited cappuccinos and expressos in lovely little dining rooms. The staff were all very
friendly and helpful. The hotel garage is a big plus in Ragusa as it is not easy to park in the old town.
There is a spa and the massage is really good.
