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

Ours had a good size terrace on which one can enjoy some Sicilian wine.Very helpful and friendly staff. Fabio always willing to help! Abundant breakfast including tasty fresh... 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

We stayed for 7 nights recently at the lovely and delightful La Pensione Svizzera. We had a great sea view and the rooms were spotlessly clean with fresh towels every morning. The front staff were some of the most helpful I have come across in many hotels across the world. Special thanks to Fabio for all his help. The property... More

A friend and I stayed the La Pensione Svizzera while in Taormina for a wedding. The location in Taormina can hardly be beat: minutes away from Corso Umberto I but a slightly removed from the madding crowd of the main square, the hotel is steps away from the bus station that transfers visitors to and from the airport in Catania...
