Hotel staff was up to speed. Location of hotel is walking distance from Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina. It has a garage which is a great asset for this town. Great view onto the Etna Volcano from the roofterrace.

Superb views of Etna and the coast from our room, which was large and comfortable. Good breakfast served to the table by friendly staff. Easy walk up through a stepped garden to the main street ( Taormina is a hill-top town so if you can't do steps it's not so good). The valet parking is done well by helpful people...

We stayed here in March - a lovely time to stay. The hotel is perched in Taormina overlooking the sea on one side and mount Etna on another. Book a room with balcony and sea view. The rooms are large ( superior double) ., perhaps a little old fashioned - but nice for that. There is a garden at the...

Hotel Villa Schuler is perched on the side of the mountain with stunning views over the sea and Mt. Etna. It is located perfectly within easy walking distance of all the sights of Taormina and the breakfast on the terrace was excellent. There is also a massive garden off the back of the property which, in warmer weather, would be...

Schuler is in the center of Taormina. It has a garden which connects to the main road. A Highlight is the excellent breakfast: great choice, location outside and most of all lovely service from Rosita.

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...

Dear guest from Edmonton, Canada, Thank you for your positive feedback. We are happy to read that we were able to meet your expectations. And YES. Our frequently praised breakfast served a la carte is special and unique, but then you mentioned another important aspect: FLEXIBLE BREAKFAST TIMES. While many hotels have fixed start-and-stop breakfast times we think that flexibility...

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!
