When planning our trip to Taormina to meet our wedding planners they suggested this B&B which was a very reasonable price and close to the Main Street. I was a bit hesitant booking a b&b but it was as good as a hotel. The owner Patrizia met us in arrival and showed us to our room, it was lovely and... More

Really nice room and centrally located however we had one problem. We gave in our passports to check in and did not receive them back for over 8 hours. This was after much chasing on our side ( including a phonecall), when we finally got them back we felt that there was little appreciation as to why this would be... More

It is a little and cozy B&B right on Taormina City' s main road. Everything is accessible and you do not have to worry about driving and parking, if you decide to park at the owner's little garage. like 5 minutes away - walking distance. For those, like my husband and I, who love this beautiful postcard-like town. It is... More

We spent four nights at this B&B - did not realize that it was so close to all the action, and there was plenty going on in Taormina at that time. The streets were crowded with tourists and there is nothing wrong with that, but we would have preferred to stay a little further from the hustle and bustle. The... More

This is a special B&B. We found it online via the reviews and were not disappointed in any way. Patrizia puts her warm and kind energy into her rooms, which are tastefully and comfortably furnished (a great joy when travelling). Breakfast is the usual Italian fare of pastries, juice and coffee (good coffee I might add), with the bonus of... More

Generosity, warmth, a beautiful room AND value for money are hard to find, but Joan's Heritage has it all. A roomy, VERY beautifully furnished room, comfortable beds, sparkling bathroom, lovely terrace (right above the action). Patrizia is a warm and delightful hostess. We didn't want to leave. Much THOUGHT has gone into guest comfort and making the room lovely to... More

My other B&B was not available for my first night in Taormina, so I booked one night at Joan's -- one of several listed by Vagabonda for my price range and circumstances. Patrizia Bottari (owner) told me to call when I arrive at the bus stop, and she would meet me. Was I surprised when she pulled up on a... More

This was such a lovely B&B we really enjoyed our stay here! It had such a great location right on the main pedestrian shopping street in Taormina which makes it great for geting back late at night. And also just to be so central! Its about a 2 min walk from the cable car that takes you down to the... More
