My husband and I went there for our delayed honeymoon and a second wedding anniversary. And we will definitely be back! Let me put it this way - if you are expecting luxury and all mod cons you are not going to find it here. But if you are willing to sacrifice all that luxury for a lovely charming atmosphere,...

Hotel is a short walk from the main sights of Taormina. We had two small balconies looking over the coast but, although the road is small, the traffic was very noisy at night. The bathroom was clean but poorly lit and it was difficult to get wet in the shower as it would only attach to the wall at a...

Well located some hundred meters out from the old town Corso Umberto touristic street, without too much climbing up to the hill. Some rooms have balconies with the view to the sea and mainland Italy. Also nice, small hotel pool area... Wifi didnt work properly.

This hotel is a three star and it offers the right things within its category. We had a pleasant short stay there and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Taormina as it is only 5 minutes away from the main popular road, Corso Umberto, and walking distance from the bus station. The staff are quite pleasant and very helpful,...

Very good location at the top end of town with super sea views. Outside pool. 5 min walk to main restaurant area. Hotel is clean but dated but then you are not paying top $ for this place. Aircon was an extra 10E per night but there was a fan in both our reasonable sized ground floor rooms. Buffet breakfast...

The advice to anyone staying here is to ask to see the room before you check in. By all accounts, the quality is hugely variable. Our room was the size of a double bed with not quite one metre at the sides and the end with one chair tucked under a dressing table. Decoration was pretty grim. Wifi was so...

This was by far the best value for money we had on our stay in Sicily! The hotel was 3minutes from the arch/ bus stops of Taormina, great location. We were able to check in early (around 11:30am), the room was large, clean, bright and AMAZING views of the bay. Definitely a wow factor! A balcony to sit out on...

Good value, but the hotels pretty mediocre. Ok breakfast, the pool only gets sun until 1 or 2pm, and the bathroom in our room was a bit smelly. Definitely pay up for a room with a balcony. I was impressed with the size of the balcony, and the view is incredible.
