We spent a lovely week in this Hotel-Palace. The hotel was beautiful both in the outside and the inside. Very typical big and comfortable rooms with great views. The owner was really lovely and she prepared delicious breakfast for yhe ten teachers that travelled to Ispica. I reccommend it to everybody who goes there.

Palazzo Gambuzza is a very pretty, quaint establishment, in a great location, and provides breakfast service. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, the big negative I have to take a star away for is because they advertise that there is internet, and I feel it is a bit disengenuous: there is internet, when one sits right at the front,...

Palazzo Gambuzza is located just 2 minutes from town center and in easy walking distance to two restaurants and one bar. The hotel has seven rooms/apartmenrs. We had a small suite with bedroom, sitting area and bathroom. The room was well appointed with a good bed, small flat screen TV (only one foreign channel though-French) and old fashioned furniture one...

This is our second visit to Sicily and our second stay at the Palazzo Gambuzza. If you are looking for a centrally located, historic experience-you've come to the right place! Accommodations are comfortable and reasonable. Breakfast is included( marmalade and honey made by monks available for sale). Lovely,private courtyards too. Someplace special!!!!

We stayed in Palazzo Gambuzza in February, it was a nice location to stay during our 'Baroque weekend': a trip we organized to see Sicilian baroque cities Modica and Noto, so Ispica was an additional stop in between. Ispica itself has several cathedrals to visit, but nothing really special. Palazzo Gambuzza is a nice place, indeed. Carefully restuctured, this old...

This is an amazing place, a hotel based in a renovated palazzo, tucked away behind one of Ispica's main churches, Basilica di S. Maria Maggiore, with its beautiful semi-circular courtyard surrounded by arched alcoves, known as the Loggiato. Our suite of rooms was named after this and was spectacular. Huge, amazingly decorated (including a UNESCO-protected painting on the bathroom ceiling!)...

We stayed in the Palazzo proper - in the Angeli suite. We thought that the place was delightful, very well and courteously run (Rosanna and the staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful) and very nicely located, within easy walking distance of the main square and most restaurants. The breakfast was excellent. We would not hesitate to return if in...

This hotel is elegant and peaceful. Located adjacent to the Basilica and its plaza this truly ancient hotel has been wonderfully restored by two local families. The courtyards are lovely with lemon and lime trees. The breakfast room has an ancient cistern below it to tour. We could walk to the center for gelato and the superb Il Mercato restauarant....

We were really looking forward to our stay at the Palazzo in May, having seen the stunning reviews. The four days stay was in the middle of our trip and we had paid extra for the apartment with a washing machine. Another benefit was to be able to self-cater and cook some of the wonderful fresh foods that Sicily provides....

Ispica is not a wonderful place, just a typical small sleepy Sicilian city. But Palazzo Gambuzza is a very nice island in the middle of the city, very close to the beautiful church and very peaceful. The comtessa is a energetic but very pleasant landlady and she will welcome you in the morning with a breakfast second to none. Very...
