Very nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, very nice breakfast. I was worried about my room being on the 4th floor without elevator, but the staff promptly took my luggage upstairs and downstairs when it was time to leave. Great location, I'd definitely go to La Pensione Svizzera again.

We stayed there during August/September as a base for our excursions out of the area. Staff was friendly, helpful and extremely attentive. Buffet breakfast was excellent. They will start breakfast as early as 530 am for guests with early excursions. Coffee was also excellent. Great value for money and highly recommend

I stayed at the Pensione Svizzera with a friend for two nights, and was very impressed with the hotel and staff. We had a room on the 4th floor with a very large balcony overlooking the Isola Bella Gulf (you can't beat the view), and loved the very cosy atmosphere of the place and its cleanliness. The courtyard, where the... More

I really recommend this hotel. Lovely staff, great service, very good location, delightful breakfast, super cleaned rooms. My room had a breathtaking view overlooking Taormina bay with private balcony. Absolutely outstanding!

The best of the hotel is the staff. They are very kindly. Taormina is a walking city with hilly and windy roads. This hotel is perfectly situated for walking to the main shopping street--Corso Umberto.

This hotel advertises itself as being owned by the same family for 70 years - and it is true! They are hands on and on site every day. The place is much more reasonable than the other hotels of its quality in this very expensive city. The view of the Strait of Messina from your room is spectacular. Every part... More

We loved our stay at Pensione Svizzera in Taormina. The location was fantastic. The hotel was very clean. The staff were very helpful with everything we asked of them, they even recommended the best place to get Sicilian granita. We had an amazing view from our room staying on the third floor. Breakfast was served in the morning in the... More

Taormina is a walking city with hilly and windy roads. This hotel is perfectly situated for walking to the main shopping street--Corso Umberto. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating and gracious. They gave us great advise for picking our restaurants.

I doubted if there is another hotel with the same name in Taormina as I did not feel or experience the specialties described by other guests. The location of the hotel is oke and it does have a view of the ocean, but from our room it was obstructed (partly) by another building. The room was much smaller than we... More

Helpful owner and staff and a pleasant hotel. If only it could be transported away from Taormina!! Don't get me wrong. It is a very picturesque place but it typifies everything that is wrong with busy Italian resorts. Local restaurants are poor and to be frank they want you in and out to maximise nightly covers. The hotel and the... More
