The manager Salvatore was extremely hospitable and welcoming, spoke English perfectly, gave good advise where to eat out, buy groceries, what to see in Taormina, Castelmola and other places, like Mount Etna.

Our visit to Taormina was greatly facilitated by Maurizio, the hotel manager. He is most thoughtful, considerate, and very helpful. This enabled me and my husband who has mobility problems to make the most of our stay in Taormina. The hotel is clean. All of the hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. Thank you Maurizio.

When we arrived at the hotel, we had to drive across stream to access the parking and found... More
