...oh yes, the rooms are nice and clean too! Visited for two nights. Service was good....rooms serviced quickly in the morning. The continental breakfast was nice and fairly typical of what we have found in Sicily. The "crown" of the hotel is the terrace which has a wonderful view of Mt. Etna and the Ionian Sea....breathtaking. Our room was nice...

On my recent visit to Italy we stayed at this hotel. It was clean, staff was friendly & accommodating to our every need. The rooms were large and clean. The breakfast was plentiful and there was something for everyone to enjoy. The terrace was amazing - the view was breathtaking and you could see Mt Etna in the background. This...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It was clean. The breakfasts were delicious. The view from the terrace was breathtaking. The staff was very accomodating to our every need. What I liked about it was that it was a centrally located in Taormina. We walked down a few stairs and we were in town. I would stay at...

The hotel was clean, located in a very convenient garden setting. Every morning we lifted our shutters and looked out at "Ms. Mt. Etna" herself. What a beautiful sight! The hotel's patio was expansive and allowed for just sitting and enjoying the fabulous views of Taormina. Just a short walk down a garden path and stone steps and you were...

We stayed two nights in this fabulous town and oh so comfortable hotel. The rooms were large, the front desk very friendly and helpful, the location...PERFECT. We saw Etna puffing everyday (missed the last volcanic hiccup by 12 hours). We had a pretty little balcony and overlooked the beautiful sea. The terrace took in miles of coast line and was...

The hotel had everything that was needed for a restful stay. We stayed two nights and had a wonderful breakfast both mornings. The views of Mount Etna from the deck were spectacular. Sitting outside was possible late into the evening without the hustle and bustle of the city bothering you. Our room was clean and large enough for spread out...

We stayed for one night and I recommend this hotel. It's very clean, excellent continental breakfast, great locality - 2 mns walk from Umberto Corso. One needs to note that the room was small and furniture was old but enjoying a small terrace...if I had to come again to Taormina I would stay in this hotel

A unique hotel built into the cliffside of Taormina. Reception/street level is top floor (Floor 2), the rooms are below on Floor 1 and 0. There is a huge terrace on the top floor with awesome views of Mt Etna and Taormina. Hotel has a great location for exploring the town. Exit out on Floor 0 past the breakfast room,...

While not a luxury Hotel it was a delightful change of pace upward during our tour of Sicily. The room was large and clean. Very nice balcony and bathroom. The terrace is world class. Great Breakfast and terrific location. Villa Zuccaro attached to the building is the finest Pizza Restaurant in Sicily ( I am sure that will be disputed...

The hotel was very nice and clean. But Danilla made it more pleasant to stay there. She helped in setting up a tour of MT. Etna and arranged to get us to the bus station for our trip to Syracuse. She also set us up in a great hotel in Syracuse. She could not have been more helpful and accomodating...
