This hotel was easily accessible from the bus station (the best and cheapest way to get to this hotel from Catania airport; approximately 1 hour and 20 minute journey). It took a short walk of about four minutes to reach the hotel. First appearance of the hotel did not do it justice. It looks a little shabby and not particularly... More

Pensione Svizzera was perfect for our singing in the Anglican church next door. A lovely little hotel with comfort, bedroom with sea view, excellent breakfast, attentive and friendly service and a great terrace to sit in sun or shade. Also near the Corso Umberto with all its treasures, the bus station and the steps down to the sea!

First, one has to remember that the hotel is only 3 stars! It is sometimes easy to forget this such is the warmth and uniqueness of this place. The place is full of charm and character, it really is a wonderful place to stay in Taormina. Let me start.... 1) Location. I don't think you could find a better place... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It's a very attractive hotel with a nice terrace/garden where we ate breakfast outside in the sun. Our room was great, with a lovely small balcony overlooking the sea, and very quiet. Breakfast is very good with a wide choice of food, fruit and cakes. The location is excellent, just 5 minutes...

It was worth staying here for the wonderful terrace and breakfast overlooking the sea. The staff are efficient and friendly, not overbearing. The pensione is in a great location and good restaurants are closeby.

Perfect stay in Sicily. I loved the location of this hotel- quiet at night yet close enough (2 minutes walk) to get into the main strip. we opted for a sea-view which was beautiful! Room facilities were great, very comfy bed and staff were attentive and great value for money. Thank you for a beautiful stay! PS- while you are... More

This small hotel provided the perfect ending for my three week adventure in Sicily. I arrived from Siracusa by train in Giardina Naxos , took the bus up to the Taormina bus stop, and discovered that my hotel was a mere two- minute walk towards "town". Ideal location for those traveling by public transit; cable car to the beach is... More

We only stayed two nights at this hotel but wished we had had longer. As other reviewers have mentioned it is ideally situated, being close enough to the town to walk in and amble along the streets and sample some of the many restaurants as well as two minutes from the cable car to the beach. We had a room... More
