La Pensione Svizzera is a very nice small hotel a few blocks from the historic district of Taormina. We had a charming room with lovely balcony with a beautiful view over the coast and Ionian Sea, which came with a free fruit basket and wine. The desk attendants were very helpful, and they found a necklace my wife had left... More

Stayed here for one night during our trip to Sicily. The rooms are nice if a little basic but the views and the location (it's about a 5 min walk to the main street) make up for that. We were a little let down by the breakfast, we arrived 30 mins before it was due to finish and most everything... More

Our room was on the 4th floor...so no gym needed...no elevator:) Mario, Gavin & Fabio were very helpful with our luggage so having no elevator was not an issue for us but you need to be in decent shape to have a room on a higher level! The bottle of wine in our room when we arrived was a nice... More

Found this a really pleasant hotel to stay in. Our room was a bit small however when other rooms were being cleaned we noticed that they were bigger so maybe we just got one of the smaller ones, but it was still an OK size. Rooms were nice and clean, bed was comfy. Bathroom was small but again this didn’t... More

We recently returned from a most enjoyable seven day stay at this hotel. The view from our room was breathtaking providing a panaramic view of mountains and seascapes and on a clear day the Italian mainland albeit with a little help from binoculars. The room was bright and airy and well equiped and the bathroom was modern with a good... More
