We stayed here for 4 nights while in Taormina recently. The location is great - steps from Corso Umberto. They had a giant terrace overlooking the Mediterranean on one side and Mt. Etna on the other side where we ate breakfast, which was a lovely way to start the day. We had a early flight out of Catina the day...

We had a lovely relaxed stay at this wonderful centrally located hotel. The views from our Suite's terrace and the hotel terrace were magnificent. All the hotel staff were friendly and very helpful before and during our visit in arranging car transfers for us and providing advice etc. We would definitely return next time we are in Sicily.

Perfect location, amazing views, friendly staff who seem to speak every language. Hotel Villa Schuler is beautiful and the rooms very well fitted out and comfortable . The sit down breakfast, which is included, is delicious. The view is sensational both directions. The only thing I would add is a kettle in the rooms. Great stay!

Beautiful hotel in Taormina. The room was small but we had 2 balconies with really nice views of Taormina, the sea and mount Etna. The staff was very helpful and recommended good restaurants. Well located and with parking available

I stayed at Hotel Villa Schuler 9 years ago when I was on a tour of Sicily. It was such a perfect experience in Taormina that, for this trip, when traveling with a friend, I contacted them to return. I wasn't disappointed-it was just as lovely as I remembered! A divine location with views of the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna,...

A classy hotel, very handily placed with a lovely breakfast served out on the terrace which has views to Mt Etna if you are lucky (we were our last day). It is difficult to find in a car so I recommend printing out the hotel's directions of how to get there (quite tricky) and taking advantage of their free parking...

I returned last week after a week's stay with an artist group at Hotel Schuler, everything was so enjoyable, morning breakfast on the terrace, helpful, pleasant staff. Much to be said for staying at a family owned hotel, little extra touches. The last night of our visit the owner hosted an art reception on the terrace, complete with bubbly. He...

We stayed in this hotel for our first night in Sicily.
