While the hotel is almost in the town center where the action (eg. bus station, cafes and restaurants) is located, one must first negotiate a steep (though short) uphill walk to reach the street level. This may be tough for those not used to physical activity, but should be taken as good sporting exercise to help you burn any excess... More

First of all, the location is terrific, on the side of a mountain in a super neat little city of Taormina. The description in the brochure tells of the wonderful view looking over the Mar Mediterraneo Sea. The hotel has 8 floors, reception is on floor 8, dinning on floor seven and rooms are six to one. I reserved a... More

The hotel reminded me of the caldera hotels in Santorini, but on a bigger scale as it was stepped down the mountain and had fabulous views. All of the staff were accommodating and helpful, breakfast was amazing and offered many local sicilian tastes including granita which is so delicious. Whilst the property is a little dated, it does have quite... More

This hotel is literally built into a cliff high above the sea. The views are amazing, the rooms clean and spacious and great location for walking around Taormina. Has a great rooftop sitting area to relax and have a drink. The pool area is very nice and had a great breakfast.

Overall we quite enjoyed our stay here, as the Hotel has quite a few plus points but if returning to Taormina we would probably try somewhere else. Location wise it is pretty much perfect from every point of view. Great view though undermined somewhat by the poorly designed (concrete dominated) balconies which lack privacy. Lovely pool with great poolside service.... More

Nice hotel but a little dated -spectacular views from virtually every room. I am guessing it was built in the 70s - lots of bare concrete!!! It could do with a bit of an update, but the room was well appointed and very comfortable. It is on top of the hill, so wouldn't be great for the elderly or those... More

Nice room, bathroom (with bath) and balcony. We had asked for an upper floor room and that was what we got, although it was one of the roughly one-third of rooms that are on the wrong side of the lift shaft which blocks the view of Etna; you can still see down into the bay. Location is excellent; the steep... More

This hotel is relatively new. It has a more modern feel with a glass elevator and contemporary furnishings. It is centrally located to the waking center of town. Parking available at no extra charge. Nice pool that hangs over the mountain with amazing views.

We had a wonderful stay here for a week in September. The staff and receptionists were very friendly, helpful and attentive (thanks ladies!). The room was lovely, spacious and the balcony offered the most fantastic views of the coast down to Giardini-Naxos and Mt. Etna...truly spectacular. The view is contingent upon room location.
