This hotel has an excellent location at the heart of Taormina - down a few flights of stairs and you're in the middle of the village. There is a wonderful patio with views of the sea and Mt. Etna and an indoor seating area also. A great place to have an aperativo and contemplate the volcano. The hotel is bright... More

Recently stayed in this Hotel in June for 1 week. We had a free upgrad to a superior room on checkin and were delighted with the space and amenities this provided. The room appeared modern and newly fitted with a lovely bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. We had two large pillows each to sleep on which were nice and fluffy... More

We just came from a five day holiday. The hotel is nice and clean with nice views. The staff are very helpful. Good value for money and situated near the centre of the town. Highly recommended. We had a great holiday. The scenes are fantastic.

A very nice hotel at the very, very top of Taormina, looking out at the ocean form the rather expansive upper deck area. A short walk to town and a great place to explore shops and restaurants, with striking views of the coast line of Sicily! The hotel is very nice with good rooms and ample size. The deck provides...

Lovely hotel, great value for money and extremely freindly, pleasant and helpful staff; what more could one ask for (well, ok if being really picky a pool would have been the cherry on top but that would have been greedy!) Pleasant, clean, well-proportioned rooms - if you get the choice ask for one overlooking the garden. Fantastic roof terrace with... More

We loved this hotel for good service, huge breakfast buffet and overall comfort level. But the biggest plus was the huge rooftop terrace which provided a panoramic view of the area. The terrace was especially great because we could watch Mt. Etna erupt with lava the three nights that we were there in May 2015.

It didn't look like much from the road, but the interior was well appointed and the staff friendly. Just step out onto the very large terrace and enjoy the billion dollar view: the beautiful village below, the Ionian Sea, and to the right, Mt. Etna. Behind, other small towns perched on the cliff's edge. Our bathroom was newly remodeled and... More

Visited for 2 nights in May. The staff were welcoming and check in was quick and efficient. Willing explained bus info, etc. and how to reach Corso Umberto using their back gate. Room was very clean and quiet. We enjoyed the evenings on the large terrace with stunning views of Mt. Etna. The breakfast had ample selection to choose from.... More

Stayed here for two nights befor starting a group tour of Sicily. Arriving at Catania airport, I had organised a car for the trip to Taormina. It should have taken about 45-50 minutes to get here, but I had a driver who thought he was on a racetrack and after doing 180kph on the local "freeway", we got here in... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in June, hotel seemed quiet but so did the whole town. I think our room had just been decorated as it was beautifully fresh, clean and very modern, mood lighting in the big shower and furniture had a new smell! The room was big and airy with a huge bed and lovely fluffy towels. Lovely... More
