The rooms were clean and comfortable, but nothing spectacular. However, the vary large terrace was fantastic for our large group to gather. We were careful to buy some drinks and snacks from the hotel, and they were quite accommodating about letting us bring our own food and drinks on the balcony. Nice little garden that leads to a number of...

Good hotel with a great terrace with a view of the town and the Ionian Sea. Nice breakfast and good rooms with veranda. No sea view from the rooms. Efficient and kind staff. Well organized transport to the beach where you can choose among several beaches. Many good restaurants within walking distance.

Just come back from the above - and, broadly, the impression was very good, but there are a few drop-offs: Location: Quite Good, on a high backstreet at the southern end of the town, and about 5-10mins walk (downhill - coming back may take longer!) to the main street and shops, and this means you are nearer some of the...

Every time I am in Taormina, I stay at this hotel. it is just a few steps from the heart of the town, with stunning Mt Etna views. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and rather large by European Standards. The front desk staff is extremely helpful with hiring cars and booking excursions. I highly recommend this hotel.
