The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely garden and conservatory to sit in during the day time and a separate car park a couple of minutes walk away. The nearby restaurant is very good and opposite there is a handy cafe that does drinks and snacks. A good choice of breakfast food. Sky... More

Our 3 nights were perfect. The location, easy walking to everywhere, including town centre, Greek Roman theatre, tram to the lower town/beach, bus station and great restaurants. There was complimentary wine in our room, lovely touch. This is a great little hotel, with many choices for breakfasts and we especially enjoyed all the private garden and inside relaxing spaces.

Spent our first night in Sicily at this lovely hotel. Upgraded to a corner room on an upper floor and enjoyed far-reaching coastline views. Short walk to forum, good restaurant right up the hill, filling breakfast in the enclosed "outside" breakfast terrace, comfortable bed, and a great starting point for our Sicilian vacation.

Many of the rooms have beautiful sea views. Everything is within easy walking distance. The cable car to the beach is practically next door. The main shopping street is a block away. The garden terrace is a beautiful place to enjoy the many breakfast offerings. And it is also a good value. There is no elevator but you can easily... More

It helps that we had perfect weather the whole visit in this fantastic city. The staff has excellent dining suggestions and there is a great... More

Pensione Svizzera is a very comfortable B&B, a three minute walk from the central pedestrian area of Taormina. It has a charming outdoor terrace (where you can have breakfast) and it has its own parking area, which is a huge bonus in Taormina. Our room was relatively small, but clean and fully equipped. It is good value by Taormina's relatively... More

We are just back from a 7 night stay at this fab little hotel (our 2nd visit) and we will definitely return. The staff make this Pensione so welcoming from the time you arrive until you leave, from the reception staff to breakfast and housekeeping they could not be more helpful. It is very clean and well looked after. You... More

We stayed three nights at Pensione Svizzera in early October. We had room 22 on the top floor. It was small but clean and very comfortable. We had a large patio area off our room that provided us with excellent views of the sea and surrounding area. The stairs were initially a bit of a chore but became welcome exercise... More

We were given a warm welcome to the hotel by Matteo, who also insisted on carrying our bags up to the fourth floor, which was most kind of him. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our double room was small but spotless and well equipped with a beautiful view. We appreciated the free bottle of wine. Wifi worked well... More

The hotel is situated about ten minutes walk from the Corso Umberto and the town centre which means that it is not as noisy as it would be if it were more centrally situated. The views from the back of the hotel where there are several rooms with a terrace, are stunning, there is a cafe and shop across the... More
