I stayed for 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. Beautiful view of Mount Etna from the terrace. Great location in Taormina. Friendly staff, modern and clean rooms. Nice breakfast served. Comfortable sitting area with great wifi. Also, choice of Sicilian excursions from the hotel. Hope to come back in the future!

We are a mature couple and have been on the road for 10 months This hotel was well located just above the main thoroughfare but very quiet and set in tranquil surroundings.

Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. We had a small terrace outside the bedroom that allowed us to take in the sites and sounds of Taormina. The expertly maintained breakfast offered a decent variety of well-stocked European breakfast foods. Best of all, our bedroom window provided direct views of the nightly Etna lava flows. Great place to stay in... More

The location of the hotel is very good, a short walk into the center or Taormina and the terrace has a wonderful view of Mt. Etna. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was clean but the decor in the room and the public spaces in the hotel is a bit outdated.

The hotel rooms themselves are a bit basic and dated, but the location and the terraces make up for it. Just a few steps to Via Umberto from the rear entrance of the hotel-- easy in and out for special dinners or lunches in town. Walking distance to bus station for Mt Etna or other exploring, and a friendly and... More

Located just a handful of steps away from the center of town, this clean, well-run and comfortable hotel has a million-euro view from its terrace where Mt Etna literally takes your breath away. Wi-Fi is limited to the large and comfortable common area with bar area looking out onto the terrace. Breakfast was varied and ample. Rooms are quite comfortable... More

...oh yes, the rooms are nice and clean too! Visited for two nights. Service was good....rooms serviced quickly in the morning. The continental breakfast was nice and fairly typical of what we have found in Sicily. The "crown" of the hotel is the terrace which has a wonderful view of Mt. Etna and the Ionian Sea....breathtaking. Our room was nice... More
