IN THE HEART OF IBLA
One thing we carry since before we were born
A DREAM OF ENTERPRISE
Dreams are often ahead of their time. For over a decade, the entrepreneurial dream of Dr. Distefano was to give tourists the opportunity to live and breath the essence and history of Ragusa Ibla. His unique vision was to bring together, in a single project, a variety of Ibla’s rustic houses and grand palaces which, though each was unique, would constitute the core of his ideal hotel in Ragusa.
A hotel diffuso, literally a “spread-out hotel,” is not your classic kind of accomodation where every room is the same. Rather, there are many different kinds of units, each of which was carefully restored in such a way to give history the utmost respect.
After a decade of work, Dr. Distefano’s dream is finally a reality. Recently recognized by the European Union as an independent hotel, Hotel dell’Orologio is the first and only hotel of its kind in the province of Ragusa. It consists of a main building with 9 rooms centered around the reception area in Via Ioppolo behind the Clock Tower Torre dell’Orologio), as well as 4 rooms in an annex (also on Via Ioppolo) and 4 palazzi along Via Febbraio, each with two or more suites complete with kitchen.
Dr. Distefano and his entire staff are proud to welcome you to the Hotel dell’Orologio for a unique and charming experience in the Heart of Ibla.
