  • 8,0.Very good

    The hotel is in great location. I only wished that I had been warned or at least had been given more explicit directions on how to get there. I trudged along uphill with my luggage fot a 1/2 hour from the bus depot. I would have taking a taxi had I known how difficult it was to get there or the local bus. And this was in February. In the summer, it would have been even more difficult. However, the staff was very helpful and helping me out. And figuring out what activities to do in the area. And the hotel offers a terrace with a great view. It's the perfect spot for a drink.

    Taormia beauty

    Free parking right in front. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Room w view of ocean. Only downside was about 60 steep stairs to center of town. A little challenging for us old folk, but doable if in decent shape. Grounds and terrace with view of Etna was awesome. Bar and very friendly bar tender. It’s a 10.

    Fantastic views of mt etna and Taormina. Close to the center of town. Helpful staff. Parked right on the street in front of the hotel (November). Wish they had a gym but that is rare in this country. Room was great with a balcony!

    Great terrace with bar service. Stunning views of Etna. Was at the western end of the ‘centre’ of Taormina but not too bad walking places. Staff were really friendly. Breakfast buffet decent and can sit out on the terrace. Hotel also had an iron and ironing board on request. Hard to find in Italy so this gets the thumbs up. Only thing really lacking from the hotel was a pool. If they could incorporate one with views of the sea and Etna, it would be excellent. (Oh, and the safe in the roof wasn’t screwed into the wardrobe - kind of defeats the point of having a safe as a burglar can just pick the whole thing up). Still, the hotel is recommended.

    So convenient to just walk out the garden, down the stairs and one is on the old town. Nice breakfast which can be eaten inside with air conditioning or outside al fresco. Received especially nice bar service from Cristina (Pelé is the best ever) and also from the woman at check-in who also lent a hand in the restaurant when it unexpectedly filled due to the rainstorm. If arriving by car, do yourself a favor and use the valet service they offer. Stop at the top of the hill if possible or just beyond the hotel door, out of the way. We booked a Superior Gardenview room (145) and enjoyed evenings on our terrace with a fantastic view of greenery. The room was good sized, very nicely appointed and was kept extremely clean. I wish it had a hot water heater for my late night tea; that would have been perfection! Taormina is absolutely gorgeous, not to be missed. We would definitely, without a doubt, stay here again. We chose well.

    A lovely hotel with a fantastic view from the roof terrace over the Mount Etna. The hotel was lovely and cool in the heat. A great choice of continental breakfast. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated in the old town in the heart of Taormina.
