What an amazing place! We spent 4 nights at Svizzera and were on our honeymoon! Everything from the very beginning until the departure was just PERFECT! The hotel Team (especially Giuzi and Mario) at the reception and at the dining room were simply SUPERB! The hotel is literally minutes from the town center, a minute away from the cable car,...

We chose this small hotel after reading previous reviews and were not disappointed. It was truly a charming hotel in a great location for the cable car and the main shops and restaurants were within easy walking distance. Although fairly central it was an oasis of quiet, calm and relaxation. We were enchanted with the beautiful tiled garden and seating... More

As always, La Pensione was not disappointing. Have been there 3 times now, last time was 3 years ago. Very clean and the staff were superb. Will be hard to beat on price for what you get. Not good for those who are unfit or unable as no lift, but otherwise, cannot fault it

After being informed to park our car a short walk down the street at the public parking facility, we were shown to our clean, comfortable room by the friendly staff, who were pleasant and helpful during our 2 night stay. Lovely view of the water from our room. Hotel is within walking distance of all major areas of Taormina. Good... More

The hotel's location is not as central as some other hotels, although it's only a 5-10 minute walk away from the best parts of the town! On the other hand it's a great location for visiting beaches as it's right next to the chair lift that goes from Taormina down to the coast. The chair lift goes every 15 minutes... More

A charming guesthouse. The service was excellent. Beautiful views from our room of the coast and Isola Bella. There was a beautiful garden to relax in. The only negative thing is about this hotel is that there is no lift.

This hotel had many things going for it: Location It's situated just down from the entrance to the old town, comfortably walking distance to anything you need. As well as that, it's 50m from the cable car down to the beach. Rooms Nicely appointed and a fair size, the rooms were quiet and comfortable. Breakfast The range on offer was... More
