My wife and I stayed 4 days in mid-September, but I could have stayed in Taormina at the Ashbee for the entire two weeks of our trip and been very happy. The hotel is beautiful, our room was very nice, large, clean, and well furnished, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food (mainly breakfast) was very good, and the... More

Lovely elegant hotel with beautiful pool and wonderful ambience. Bedrooms large and beautifully designed. Bed linen deserves special mention for its crispness. Within 5 minutes walk of bustling Taormina yet the minute you walk through the entrance gates you are in a different peaceful world. Lovely rooftop breakfast area/ evening cocktail bar. Beautiful infinity pool.Plentiful sun loungers with ample towels... More

We had a 4 night break in Taormina and wanted to be either in the centre of the town or close to it. The Ashbee is about a 2 minute walk uphill to one end of the main high street, the Corso Umberto, so was perfectly located for our needs. The hotel itself is a very attractive building, imposing in... More

This is certainly a 5 star hotel and I don't say this lightly. It is peaceful, cool and serene, with a spectacular view at the back. Staff are FLAWLESS, and I mean flawless, especially Danilo and Irene whom we met a bit better. The wait staff are also reassuring and friendly. I have not once saw the housekeeping staff and...

This hotel is a bit on the expensive side for what you get. It is expensive & they still charge 25 euros a day for parking. The breakfasts were disappointing. The choices were disappointing with very little choice in the hot cooked range. The staff were very friendly & helpful.

The Ashbee is2 minutes walk uphill from Taormina's Porta Messina. It has 16 rooms and 9 suites, so is ideal for a quiet and relaxing stay (we were there for a week). Our suite was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, and comfortably cool (the aircon is centrally controlled but we didn't have a problem with that). The hotel is an early... More

This hotel is situated right in the centre of Taormina, walking distance to all restaurants, bars and shops. It is a quiet hotel great for relaxing. It's kind of like having your own apartment as you have big french doors that open onto your massive balcony. The infinity pool is really great and has great views. The bar at the... More

This is a magnificent property in a great location. Multilingual staff is friendly and professional and the buffet breakfast is very good, even excellent, with sweet, sour and Sicilian specialties on offer. From the restaurants you can enjoy a great view. The hotel exudes an air of old style, XIX century noblesse. A bit ostentatious in trying to impress. The... More

WE had a fantastic fortnight in Taormina, and will always remember fondly the friendliness of the staff in the Ashbee (in particular Franceso, Mary and Giovanni). The setting of the hotel is stunning, with the infinity pool overlooking the cliffs and lovely views of the beach below. The location is also perfect - right on the doorstep of the Corsa... More

This Hotel is wonderful, service and beautiful rooms with plenty of room we also had a balcony with views of the mountain. Great breakfast. The tours arranged were perfect. We could walk down to the beach each day but returning we took the gondola.
