The view is remarkable!
A lovely hotel in a spectacular location. The pool is wonderful, the room was quite comfortable. We definitely would return. The staff, while very professional, were less than enthusiastic about helping.

Our 4th stay !
This is our 4th stay we love Taormina and this hotel ! The location is perfect situated just off the main Corso Umberto with beautiful views over Etna and the coast below. Yes the hotel could do with a little updating but the location and service is second to none. We will return next year !!

Old School Glamour
Stay in style with one of the old school grandes dames of the top end Taormina Hotels. Conveniently situated right by Catania gate, I upgraded myself to a deluxe sea view room, which was a massive corner room with views to Mt Etna and a balcony facing the sea. Bathroom was huge and had a bathtub, which always pleases me. Service was old school perfection. Freshly made butter biscuits in the room during the evening. Only minus was that breakfast, though fine, was nothing special- unless you have a sweet tooth- as there were at least 10 cakes! Highly recommended
