Taormina is amazing, and the hotel was conveniently located just off the Corso Umberto. We had paid for a slightly upgraded room but on arrival were told that e had been upgraded again. Not sure what exactly the difference was in the room. It was spacious and had a view of the sea. Unfortunately the sound proofing in the rooms... More

Great location in centre of town. Limited 3 star service provided in rooms - poor internet, no tea making facilities, no drinking glasses and very small rooms. Also staff had difficulty relating to English speaking clients. Continental breakfast was adequate

Everyone that worked at the hotel were amazing and so friendly. The view from our balcony was amazing across the town and out to the ocean. If you don't get a... More

This was my third time at this hotel. This time we were a group of 8 and had some changes in our travel itinerary but the Antonio, the General Manager made sure we were seen too and without hesitation took care of our needs. 5* Service 5* Location Jonathan Xuereb, Malta

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.

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
