What more do you want: The host is just "the perfect host". He takes care of everything needed in the most friendly way. The room (we had the room at the end of the floor facing the street) was very nice and very clean. The 2 bed were in a good shape (just too short as always in Italy). This... More

I really enjoyed my stay in Taormina thanks to the service received here. I felt very welcomed and the owner was waiting for me on the balcony to make sure I found the place. He was very helpful with the parking (which is along the street) and even went to check my parking was ok. The room was lovely, bright... More

Taormina has plenty of attractions but it is an expensive town. If you want luxury, superb views and gourmet breakfasts there are places that cater for that market. If like us you enjoy slow travel, if possible using public transport and spending more time in each place as a base and having local advice to maximise those experiences, but don't... More

If you are looking for good value accomodation near Taormina centre then this is a great choice. We stayed for 6 nights and found the room very clean and had all we required for a base to explore eastern Sicily. The room also had air-con which would be particularly helpful in the summer months. We choose the B&B thanks to... More

Not every place is for every traveller but if you are wanting to visit Taormina and your accommodations are just for cleaning up, catching some winks and setting out on next adventure this one fits the bill....and the Price! Nando was a great host, recommended a very nice Ristorante for evening meal all the while dealing with Italian illiterate guests... More

I stayed at Fontana Vecchia for 3 days. It has a comfortable, clean and cosy rooms and has a good location just 5 walking mins from the town centre. The owner is very friendly and helpful person and also prepared breakfast earlier, if I needed to leave the house early in the morning.

Despite a welcoming host who was helpful with directions and a charming name, this is a bare-bones B&B; perhaps a bargain for Taormina, but....the only common area is the kitchen, which was un-airconditioned and in August, quite warm. The host does not arrive to help with breakfast until 9 a.m., so you make your own coffee and select from the... More

I choose Fontana Vecchia very late for the price, not for location.It was a little complicate to travel with public transport from Giardini Naxos to Taormina.I took a shared taxi with others travelers paying just 5 euro/person.There is public transport in Taormina but is impossible to understand how works.It happens to be chaotic in April ,because they have a special...
