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. They have a happy hour in the courtyard, breakfast on the terrace, and they can also arrange... More

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

We stayed here for the second time in one of their superior rooms. Without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff could not have been more helpful especially Lucia and all the other, the food could not have been better, the location is stunning, the room was wonderful. They also have good links with the local... More

We had a 7 night stay at the Pensione Svizzera. Good room (reasonable size) and the breakfast was good, although not a lot of variety. Good Location, 2 minutes walk to the cable car (to the beach) and 5 minutes walk to the bar and restaurant area in the town. Parking available 2 minutes walk away at extra charge -... More

A great place to base your stay in Taormina. Opt for a room with a balcony and a view of the sea if you can it will be well worth it. The stairs can be a challenge but they will assist in working off the wine and pasta ! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights here it... More

We had 5 nights at the Svizzera. This was a very nice B&B, clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful and informative. It is situated just outside the old town wall, so an easy walk into all the bars and restaurants. We were on the 4th floor and had a little terrace with excellent views over the lovely bay.... More

We had originally chosen Hotel Angela for our week in Taormia after being in Modica for the first week - but then in an effort to shave something off the cost of two weeks in Sicily we changed to Svizzera - when we saw the Angela on a bus trip we were so glad we changed as you would not... More

Very nice hotel, excellent sea views and friendly staff! My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights during our honey moon in Sicily, and we both were extremely happy with this choice. Great location, very close to everything, around the corner from gondola that will take you right to the beach. We booked a room with the sea view... More
