This review is long over due. We visited Hotel il Piccolo Giardino in July 2014 for a second time as we loved our stay in 2013. Both visits we found the staff very helpful and friendly and Taormina itself is just an amazing gem of a town to visit. I can’t imagine holidaying anywhere else now. Having stayed here the... More

Well, this is an establishment of 3 stars, maybe I must not complain, but... I remained without words as I found NOBODY at the reception desk. Not only once. Furthermore, no answer to phone call when I was in need of some assistance or I had something to ask for. Lovely atmosphere should be appreciated, however this place seems to... More

Terrific location in Taormino - just 39 steps (literally) down to to the Corso Umberto. Bright very pleasant hotel, comfortable en-suite room. Staff very friendly and most helpful with information, booking taxis etc. . Lovely small garden with orange tree and clementines. Roof pool with sun deck. Lift to all floors. Would be very happy to stay again.

The hotel was excellent. we had a great view to the Theater and the service was great. rooms are spacious and have a little balcony where you can enjoy a glass of wine after a long day. Defenitely recommend it.

I've been in 7 different hotels in Taormina and now this is my favorite, I dont' need to pay 400€ if Im going to have to walk a lot to go for dinner. Il piccolo giardino is right on the center of the corso, perfect spot, and i must say perfect service. The owner is right there every morning, plus... More

Rooms were small but nicely decorated. Even though our room was over the restaurant it was very quiet. The location is excellent down some stone steps to the Main Street. The hotel is not easy to access if your coming in by car. Drive up to the hotel drop off your luggage and then park your car. The car park... More

For the record, I never asked your hotel for any money, not do I desire any reimbursement for our stay. We went to the Police in the hope that other guests will be protected from future thefts, and to alert them to a potential issue. If you really are interested in pursuing this, the Ipad serial number is DLXJQDZ1F196. I've... More

Just had the family ipad stolen from the room, with the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. Since everything was locked up, the only reasonable explanation is that someone had a key, like a staff worker. Totally ruined the experience, and suffered poor customer service response from the hotel when trying to discuss the matter. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Gentili Signor. Valentine G. H. Il regolamento di Tripadvisor mi da la possibilità di rimuovere le recensioni diffamatorie e offensive, ma nel suo caso la lascerò online, per il solo motivo che lei è un BUGIARDO. Lo dimostra il fatto che si è rifiutato di fornire alla Polizia e a noi il suo indirizzo Apple ID per consentire la localizzazione... More

A simple room that's fairly small even by Italian standards but very clean. Breakfast included but don't dare be late or close to the cut off time as they simply close the doors and lock you out of the area that the food is in, no communication, would you like a coffee before we pack up nothing just a rude...

Like many have said the location is great and the best thing about the hotel. It is within yards of the main street with plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops. It's also close to the Greek Theatre, taormina's main attraction. The room (we stayed at the back) didn't have a view to speak of and was of adequate size. Lacked... More
