Nice little hotel in the town center. Delicious buffet breakfast in the garden with ample choice of sweet and savory food. Nice infinity pool on rooftop with great views of the sea and the Greek theatre, but the pool is much smaller than on the pictures. Rooms are comfortable and quiet but small and plainly decorated with no design, the... More

We stayed in the hotel for four nights and was extremely disappointed with the hotel. Its ideally located just off the main street however this is all the hotel has going for it. The hotel consists of two buildings and unfortunately we were put in the second building which was extremely dark and dull with a very strong unpleasant smell.... More

Sadly, this place didn´t live up to its rating here on Trip Advisor. We booked this hotel because of its rating here on T.A. THE GOOD: The location is probably its strongest asset - you can walk everywhere. The view from most of the rooms is great and the rooftop pool is small but adequate. THE BAD: THE STAFF! Grumpy...

Make sure to get a superior room, the view is stunning. The hotel is located just off of the Main Street and has a nice garden in its entrance and a rooftop with a beautiful view. The decor is minimalist which is a good thing in Sicily, however some more work could be put into the rooms/bathrooms. Be wary that... More

We loved our stay at Il Piccolo Giardino. We stayed for 8 nights as part of our honeymoon trip. The team was always helpful and attentive and we felt like we were part of the family by the time we left. The rooftop pool is small but adequate, with an amazing view. Reception helped us organise a fabulous tour and... More

We arrived late on a Thursday hoping to relax after a number of restless nights travelling by boat, and we were not left disappointed. We were met by the welcoming and friendly Beatrice, who went out of her way to accommodate us despite having no reservation. We only stayed one night, as we had another hotel booked for the days...

Cosiy hotel with all the facilities you need (except a beach) central in Taormina. Nice clean rooms and a excellent rooftop pool and sun roof. An oasis with a small garden. A bit expencive comparing but in high season this is what you must accept for this standard and location.

Excellent location - a staircase away from via umberto. Helpful staff, very clean, nice decor, lovely pool area with great views. Worth paying slightly more for the delux twin room with balcony. Strongly recommended. Will be back.

We spent five days at this lovely hotel. We were heartly welcomed by the nice lady in the reception when arriving late in the evening. We were celebrating my 60th anniversary in taormina. My husband and I had the lovely junior suite, with a large terrace, and the room itself was big and comfortable, with a nice design. Our sons... More
