This is a relatively small hotel in an excellent location in Taormina. The hotel is only a short walk from the heart of the town but is on a much quieter street. The view from our window was spectacular and the room was quite nice. It's a small jewel in a beautiful location.

It would be difficult to overstate how happily surprised I was by La Pensione Svizzera. I booked two nights via their website for ~80 euros/night for a twin room without a view and I was expecting very basic functionality. I was wrong. The rooms were clean and well-appointed (although the beds left something to be desired); the hotel itself was...

Lovely small hotel close to the city of Taormina, very skilled and friendly staff - simply enjoyed our three day stay. Be sure to reserve parking when arriving with a car, as parking spaces are very limited in Taormina. The hotel is situated next to the cable cabin that takes you down to the beach, so relaxing is comfortable and...

We spent a month in Italy and found that overall, Hotel Pensione Svizzera was one of the two best places we stayed. The location is very convenient-central to top sightseeing. The garden and outdoor seating area is beautiful and tranquil, while the breakfast room is cheerful. The breakfast buffet was the most extensive of our entire trip. We requested a...

We arrived in Europe just as the major airports were all being closed following the volcanic eruption in Iceland. As a result of this we arrived in Taormina without any luggage. The staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful & understanding. They went out of their way to keep in daily contact with our airline to monitor...

We stayed at the hotel La Pensione Svizzera from 11. of May until 13. of May and we loved the place. Of all the hotels we stayed in on our trip round Sicily we loved this hotel the best. Very lovely, not so big, room with a great view from the small balcony. Try to get a room on the...

I really loved this little hotel. I can be picky about hotels and especially about service, but this place lived up to the great reviews. To sum up the negatives: The rooms are small. There is no elevator in a four-floor hotel. You need to ask the front desk for an internet password and it will work for a limited...

Vinciguerra, Owner at Hotel La Pensione Svizzera, responded to this review

Dear guest, thank you very much for your open comment. I agree with you that we do need a lift, but want to explain. Since La Pensione Svizzera was constructed in 1920, it comes under the binding force of the Cultural Protection and we have not yet been given the permission to construct an outside lift. Once resolved the problem,...
