    This is a comfortable hotel, located a couple of meters off the main street, with a breathtaking view of the old town of Modica. It provides a good breakfast including a life-giving cappuccino. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Modica is stunning, full of old churches, eateries, cake places, and real life sceneries of a functioning city.

    Everything was fantastic!

    We were pleasantly surprised in this old town to find a boutique style hotel with only around 5 rooms and gorgeous roof top terrace to enjoy the city view. Our room was ultra modern and quite large with a balconette overlooking the charming narrow alley ways of Modica on the first floor. No elevators here and not needed with only ground and first floor. The roof terrace is second floor. Comfy bed and high alfresco ceilings. Breakfast was included buffet style including cheeses, cold meats, croissants, pastries, biscuits, cereal and fruit. Check out the roof top terrace great panoramic views. They even have a wine cellar. Ask at reception its on the ground level. Lovely quite area and Hotel with friendly young staff members who assisted us in directions and where to get the best gelato. There is a railway station and bus service to get around to Ragusa. Great food and restaurants in this area and lots to see all in walking distance. We took the little train tour around the main sites for only 5 euro each. You must try Modica chocolate during your stay here!

The staff were very helpful and friendly. They suggested an excellent new restaurant for lunch when we asked and arranged an early breakfast for us on our last morning. We would definitely stay there again.

    I interpreted the photographs on the Le Magnolie page as the hotel having a very large and gorgeous rooftop garden, but this is in fact for another hotel they own somewhere else. The rooftop terrace is very small, although could be enjoyed for the view of the amazing town of Modica.

    It was very comfortable and space good. Quiet location up some steep stairs or tiny roadway. The simple decor is elegant and gives a restful atmosphere which we liked

    Took us ages to find. Do not follow google maps, it will take you everywhere but the hotel, Put in the street name. There was practically no parking and we had to park half a km away on the street. The hotel is up a street which is inaccessible to cars so not good for the disabled. Not enough sockets for phone charging.

    To be honest, there was nothing I didn't like. One suggestion I would like to make though, is that although the mini-bar was well stocked, it would have been nice to find something to "nibble on" in there too. Some things I thought of were; a small bag of olives, a square of cheese, some peanuts or crisps or a chocolate would have very welcome at times.

    The staff were exceptionally friendly and most helpful. The breakfast had a good variety and was fresh and tasty. The room was exceptionally spacious and well equipped. It had a well stocked mini-bar, a large and comfortable bed, a comfortable chair, a multi-channel TV and Wi-Fi. The bathroom was spacious and the towels were fresh and clean. The room was also well maintained during my stay.

    Shower was awful....one had to pull a knob out for the main shower to work, however it kept retracting on its own and going off and/or the water cut out resulting in the knob retracting. All very annoying when your shower cuts out umpteen times and you have to hold it to keep it on leaving you with one spare hand. A design flaw. Steps/steep slope to hotel. No lift in hotel...thus had to haul heavy case up stairs. Poor staff. Receptionist didn't offer us a map or talk us through it to provide us with local knowledge. I had to go down and request a map. She couldn't even tell me where the hotel was on the map! The safe didn't work. Receptionist didn't know what the issue was and had to telephone someone to find out. It turned out that the usual code system was not working and we needed an additional key. In the breakfast room and at reception we were met with gloomy faces. We only saw two staff. Both appeared miserable and disinterested. The hotel was cold, sterile, lacking warmth and atmosphere.

    Location close to the main thoroughfare and sites. Large room. Big bathroom. Large good looking shower. When the shower was on and working it was great. Super breakfast.

    Bed was a little too firm for my liking and the bedding was a little tired (although clean). Breakfast was ok but the choice was a little limited and lacked variety from day to day. Climb up to the hotel is not for those with limited mobility and internally the hotel does not have a lift. Do not rely upon Google Maps for directions, as these will take you up to the top of the hill, when the hotel is only one level above the Corso Umberto (just behind the tourist information office).

    Room was very spacious and equipped as advertised. Shower excellent. Great view from the roof top terrace. Home made jams at breakfast a nice touch.

    There was a smell of damp in the ground floor of the building. Whilst the bathroom was very grand, things hadn't been finished properly and not everything worked - bath edge not sealed so water leaked out onto the floor; and I ended up filling the bath from the shower head rather than the taps. Once full, the Jacuzzi jets didn't work. For the money, I would have thought these things would have been attended to.
