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

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect for us as it was a short walk to the bus terminus, and also an even shorter walk to the funicular down to the beach, and a 10 minute walk past shops etc to the main area. We had room 18 on the 3rd floor (no lift so one way of... More

We stayed in the Svizzera for 6 nights in September 2014. From the reviews, it looked just like the hotel we like to stay in and it did not disappoint. We asked for a room on the top floor with a private balcony and got Room 22. The room was small ( we knew that) but very well appointed. The... More

As Airline staff I stay in 4/5 star hotels all the time, so spoilt or not, I do know & appreciate excellent service. I especially loved this Hotel because along with the excellent friendly staff, it had a very homely feel and it was extremely clean. It had a wonderful breakfast (although I think the one very efficient lovely Matteo... More

We stay three nights after stays in Venice, Florence and Rome. Best view, best room, best breakfast and best concierge. Good location to Main Street and bus station. We very much appreciated the helpful staff.

Found this place online and it was last minute kind of booking and we were surprised with the location and proximity to the city center. The staff were extremely friendly with good English communications. The facilities were modern and well maintained; and most importantly is the cleanliness of the rooms. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Taormina.
