We stayed here for the last night of our Secret Sicily tour. It must have been the end of season as there didn't seem to be any other residents. Our large, very quiet and dark bedroom (112) was on the ground floor and overlooked the expansive pool. It was very clean, but lacked atmosphere, as did the restaurant. Our tasty group dinner was swiftly served and the wine waiter did a good job. However there didn't seem to be a bar which meant pre- and post dinner drinks meant a lack of conviviality. Next morning my wife and I went for a short stroll around the neighbourhood which comprised nice housing an a stunningly modern church, but it seemed an odd location for such an aspirational hotel property.

although we reserved here, we didn't get a chance to stay here due to a double-booking on their part. And, it is a long walk from the train station ..... after double checking and once it was clear that the problem was on their end, they offered to hold our bags while we explored Ragusa ... and while they found other accommodations for us. Although the other place was a couple of blocks away, they did drive us there and got us settled. It was a little exciting (not in a good way!) since we were communicating in Spanish, but everything worked out. I think if someone can make a bad situation right, they deserve credit for that .....

We stayed in the apartment with red walls, it`s design is beautiful. There is a balcony, free parking and good cosmetics available. Good location, few minutes walk from the city center. If I come to Ragusa again, I would definately recommend it. The owner was nice and waiter for us after official check in time. Also very clean, with hand sanitizers.

The hotel appeared modern and clean but they only supply one door card which is inserted to power everything. So couples can’t split up and go in different directions. The tv had 6 channels, all in Italian. The coffee machine didn’t work. The plugs are designed for 3 prongs so a standard 2 prong adapter generally won’t work. Internet is pretty slow- forget uploading photos. Only 1 person at check in for an entire bus full of tourists. Meals seemed good but am a bit nervous of after effects after reading previous reviews! There is no, or very little ventilation in the bathroom so a shower quickly elevated the humidity and the partial shower screen is inadequate to prevent water from splashing onto the floor. These issues would be enough to convince me not to stay again if we made a return visit to the area.

I visited here in May 2019 the rooms were very clean and the place was centrally located . The staff and owners very friendly and can arrange a pickup for you at the bus station. The room are large and perfect for a family of 4. There is a good canolli place down the street.. I highly recommend this place..

Overall this Hotel served its purpose well. On the positive side it’s close to the centre (new Town) and the Hotel is genuinely interesting. Our Room was on the first floor overlooking the Street and had a huge ceiling and had lots of character. The bed was comfortable and free water was in the mini-Bar. The lightning wasn’t great and the safe in the room was operated with a key on the same key ring as the card which operated the lights. Nice idea except that to lock, or unlock, the safe you had to take the card out of the light reader and within 60 seconds you were in darkness! It also had Sky so we could watch the Ryder Cup and see Europe win which was a real bonus! The are some useful observations to make. There are no lifts and getting to the first floor if you have heavy bags, as we did, is difficult after a long drive although when we checked out the guy on Reception gave me a hand. If you have a room on the second Floor bear this in mind, especially if you have a lot of luggage! I think we were unlucky as the night we stayed was a day of celebration (can’t remember what it was) and there was a Disco going on until at least midnight, if not later. This was followed by people having a long and protracted argument in the Street at 3.30am. Not the fault of the Hotel (clearly) but it’s a risk with close proximity to city centres plus having a room street facing. The Breakfast was slightly disappointing compared to other places we stayed. It was OK but very basic. Parking is also a lottery for those who drive there. On Sunday street parking is Free. We were very lucky but on another day I’m not sure how we would have managed, although I’m sure we would have found a solution but this is definitely worth bearing in mind. The WiFi was good. Getting to Ibla (old Town) is walkable downhill although a mammoth trek getting back unless super fit especially if you are having a meal there as well. The going rate for a Cab is €10 which is a bit pricey but unless you drive (not really recommended as parking is very limited) it’s the only real option. Stupidly we did wait for the Bus (at the right time) but unsurprisingly it didn’t turn up!

Stayed here three nights and found the hotel to be ideal to visit the sights in Ibla and Superiore. Close to restaurants , bars and shops. The breakfast is very Italian but adequate for us. All the staff were very pleasant and it seemed a “happy” establishment. The receptionist spoke excellent English and was very helpful. Safe and fridge in room with fast WiFi. Would stay here again.

Don't stay here if church bells bother you! They ring and ring but really become quite bearable after a while. This little hotel is actually not so bad if you're just there for a day or so. It is close to restaurants and shopping and is relatively quiet (besides the bells!). Our room was spacious and clean, however, the bathroom was tiny and I felt like I would bang my head every time I walked in. The shower stall was teeny, don't drop the soap! Linens were find, pillows flat. Good towels. The wifi worked well in the room and breakfast area. There was no view from our room and since there is no provided parking, we just left the car on the street around the corner. It was fine overnight, no problems. Breakfast was quite nice with fresh fruit, grains, breads, juices and sweets. The coffee was good but we felt like we had to bed for a second cup. The staff were friendly and check in/out was easy.

We were supposed to be staying in a different hotel and were only informed a day before travel that we had been transferred to this one due to "upkeep". That the original hotel had a pool and garden for relaxing was very attractive to us. The De Stefano was not an adequate replacement. The hotel is a quirky boutique hotel but certainly not luxury. The shower cubicle was the smallest I have ever seen other than on a boat or caravan. I had to enter sideways and then there was hardly room to move. There were no drawers in the room and the wardrobe was very shallow and the doors could not be opened fully as they were obstructed by the bedside table. I’d say Premier Inn standard at best (but even there we’d have a bath tub and a sofa. And working wifi). There was very little space to hang wet bath towels or beach stuff, and in 4 days things just didn’t dry. The room safe kept resetting itself and having to be unlocked by the staff. The hotel room doors are not well soundproofed and the management preference is to play musak in the common areas through speakers in the ceilings; musak which was loud enough to be a constant irritation inside the bedroom through the non-soundproofed door. We had to ask several times for it to be turned off, once at 11.30pm! The wifi was unavailable more often than not, despite having possibly the longest wifi password in the world. On the subject of the manager, the hotel seemed to be run by three very pleasant young men, but the manager was never in evidence. There are no pleasant areas to sit and relax around the hotel, no outside space. In the room we had one desk chair and otherwise the only place to relax was on the bed which is not ideal when you are an older person. Breakfast was OK, but didn't change day to day. The best thing about the hotel was the young man making the excellent breakfast coffee. The spa and swimming pool are only available for personal booking. We did try them out and were able to swim a little but the pool is really too small for exercise, more of a large Jacuzzi. My husband who is generally a tolerant man said on day 3, “it’s been a lovely day I just wish we didn’t have to go back to that weird hotel”. Which sums it up really. When we got back on the last night the maid had taken our personal tea mugs and they had disappeared. We never got them back. While the location was still a good base for exploring the area, the hotel did not live up to expectations in many respects.

As one other reviewer has mentioned, the staff in this hotel are what make it. They beam genuine smiles and are very helpful and speak great English. First thing is that parking right by the hotel is impossible and even the nearest street parking is always full. Best advice is to not even attempt to get anywhere near the hotel if you like your rental deposit in tact. Park in the car park next to the post office and it’s a simple walk down hill to the hotel. The pool is a real treat to find in the middle of a city like this and is a veritable oasis (so much so that there are mosquitos - watch out!) The breakfasts were huge and covered anything you would expect from a continental breakfast. We stayed in their basic double which was comfortable and well proportioned but just off the reception on the ground floor. The hotel need to find some way of sound insulating that room as we could hear every word spoke at reception. Location is great - if you want to walk to the old town Ragusa it’s not far as the crow flies but there are quite a few steps down and up - you will earn your lunch. Our trip down and back up reached 35 floors! All in all a great stay made by the wonderful staff and a much needed pool!

Pictures on line looked good but you never know. When we arrived we were delighted to see we were not disappointed. A farm converted into a very quaint relaxing place to stay and located only 20 minutes from the old city centre. Rooms were nicely appointed, clean with exposed stone walls. The front desk was polite and very helpful. Grounds had a swimming pool with lounge chairs, there were various seating areas throughout and a nice patio to enjoy your breakfast on. Speaking of breakfast, a wonderful buffet iwth fresh pasteries, cheeses, fruit, breads, eggs and the list keeps on going. This is our third trip to Italy and Artemisia is one of the nicest places we have stayed. I would highly recommend staying here and the price is right.

Ok, you're planning on going to visit Ragusa or Ibla so I won't give a review of how pretty the town is. However, I will highly recommend staying at this B&B -- one of the first and still the best. The decor is homey yet chic, right out of the pages of Decor magazine. The rooms are huge with high ceilings, ornate chandeliers, with perfect touches of old and new. The breakfast is a satisfying spread with homemade jams and cakes and, if the weather is good, you get to sit on the veranda overlooking the town and soaking in the whole Italian-ess of it all. Location-wise, it is a 5-10 minute walk to the public parking lot, 5-10 min walking to the duomo and all the shops and restaurants. So, near the happening areas without being in the happening area and its noises (although when we were there it was relatively quiet all around). But what makes this the bets damn B&B in Sicily is the wonderful proprietor and hostess Elena and her husband Simone. Elena speaks about 1000 languages and since she was born and raised in this very house, she was always happy to share with us the history of the town and make great recommendations on where to go. Ciao, Elena from J and Vale. Grazie per tutti.

We loved Ragusa, and loved Il Duomo Relais! It was my favorite of all the places we stayed in Sicily. I felt happy and at home as soon as we arrived. It is a bit tricky to find, you have to wind around up to the top of the hill on a narrow street, but Katia’s detailed directions helped, and parking was readily available along the street. There are only 4 rooms here, 3 upstairs with balconies and a view of the dome of the duomo and surrounding area. The one downstairs room is directly off the breakfast room and lacks the view, so I would recommend booking upstairs if you can. It is a lovely, peaceful place. The room and bed were great, complete with a welcome bottle of wine and almonds to enjoy on the balcony while savoring the view. There were plentiful pillows, and bedside tables with electrical outlets, lamps, and drawers. No dresser, but a wardrobe with a shelf and an ottoman in the corner which I used for my clothes. Katia was able to provide some extra hangers on request. There’s a refrigerator and a safe. The bathroom had good lighting and good water pressure in the shower, big fluffy bath towels and robes, a shelf for toiletries and two robe hooks. Could have used a hook or ring for the hand towel, otherwise everything was well laid out for a comfortable stay. Best of all was our wonderful hostess, Katia. She was very gracious, welcoming and helpful. Each morning she welcomed us to breakfast and outlined the day’s offerings, which varied somewhat – caprese one day, torta another, etc. There was always meat and cheese, breads, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juice, and assorted pastries, including little cannoli which she filled to order. There was a coffee/tea/hot cocoa machine available around the clock, as well as fresh fruit and candied almonds. The location is very central, close to the duomo, though you will get a workout climbing up the steps each day.

I stayed in one of the double rooms about three years ago and recently returned to stay in the suite. I can't emphasize what a fabulous job the proprietors do to make sure their guests have a comfortable and pleasant stay. They were always prompt to reply via email--even to the occasional question we had while we were staying there. Although there is no parking on the premises we never had a problem finding a spot on the street nearby. The room was immaculate with antique Liberty furniture. It was very nice to return to the palazzo in the evening after strolling the quiet streets of Ragusa. The air conditioning worked great and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were large, modern and very comfortable. There is always an ample spread at breakfast with Ragusan specialties including meats, cheeses and baked goods. This is a terrific place to stay in historic Ragusa Ibla but also a fantastic choice to see the region.

We stayed here for a week while visiting the area. This is a lovely 17th century building which has been beautifully restored. It has 4 very individual bedrooms and a breakfast area.(the wonderfully restored old stable).There is no kitchen so breakfast is not cooked, but delicious none the less. It is described and served by the wonderfully vivacious and helpful host, Rita. It includes the usual cereals yoghurts cheeses and salamis as well as the many Italian and Sicilian delicacies prepared by Rita’s husband, a chef. There was always something different every day, a real delight! Our room had a lovely walled terrace with a beautiful view of the dome of the Duomo. Rita was an exceptionally attentive and helpful host even coming to collect us in the car park when we arrived. The narrow one way system means that it is difficult to find Neropece even with google maps and a satnav. Within 5 mins of phoning Rita arrived and escorted us to a car park near the hotel. She also provided us with a parking pass to enable us to park nearer the hotel during our stay. On our last day we had to leave early and were provided with a lovely picnic breakfast to eat on the way. A fabulous experience. Thank you Rita for all your help. I would certainly go back. One minor problem, is that if you have mobility or breathing problems, there is no lift!

Fantastic experience. Ivan was very welcoming as were his staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Ivan glided seamlessly through the hotel speaking a range of languages. Remembering each guests' nationality and finding time to chat. I thought the hotel was exquisite and the breakfast plentiful with a view to take your breath away.
