We stayed for only one night (and wished we could have stayed longer). The town of Taormina is simply great and this hotel made our stay just perfect. It has a great view and is at the same time situated near the city center (only a few minutes walk to the greek theatre which is a must see). We did... More

Our room with a terrace over looking the sea and with a view out to Mt. Etna was perfection. There really is not much more to add. Though it was still a little chilly - the hotel had just opened back up for the season - we enjoyed a cup of tea on the terrace before breakfast. And a glass... More

Do you like having your own space book the nice studio apartment in the dependance of the hotel - well equipped - king size bed - very clean & tidy! On walking distance from city centre only be aware of the many, many stairs - so high heels are a no go! Just put them on if you are in... More

A really nice, friendly and personable hotel. Breakfast (including dried roasted tomatoes and other vegetables) was the best we got in Sicily. The parking valets were excellent. The next door public garden a delight, and everything else in easy walking distance. Terrace view spectacular, rich bougainvillea colour although still a bit chilly in March to fully appreciate. Only possible drawback... More

The hotel is small but perfectly formed and well placed on the edge of town. A friendly welcoming and helpful staff added the extra quality to our stay. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated and the beds wonderfully comfortable. We had French windows which led onto a small balcony overlooking the pool and out to sea - perfect. The... More

This hotel is recommended, although the apartments can be quite pricey. The staff are excellent, especially Joshua who is calm and informative. We booked one of the apartments about 100 yards up the road from the hotel. Unfortunately we were given the 1st floor apartment, when we had asked for a high floor. The major difference between the hotel rooms... More

We got a studio apartment on the second floor for 3 nights. Having been to Positano a couple of months earlier we wanted to explore Taormina and found this via Tripadvisor and Expedia. Initially my wife was a bit put off by the recent review by "weltravelledofSussex" but I insisted we try it out as the majority of reviews were... More

Dear Sir or Madam, Just a brief word from Hotel Villa Belvedere to thank you kindly for the pleasant surprise engendered by your recent, much appreciated review which puts into a very different light a certain negative and as you say, biased, review, from "weltravelledofSussex", - doubtlessly written for obscure personal reasons and meant to harm. Truly a case of... More

Beautifully designed modern suite on 8th floor, like an glass aerie in the sky-- with same view as from the renowned Greek Theatre. Convenient to Town, never used our car. Helpful staff with great English skills-- and good recommendations for restaurants.

we spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel with great views of the sea and Mt. Etna. The main hotel was closed and undergoing renovation. We were placed in a beautiful top floor apartment with a large balcony, comfortable bed with quality accessories. The owners were most gracious, helping us carry our bags down the street to the apartment. Since... More

We were blown away by this hotel. Despite the main building being closed in the off season, the apartments down the road are amazing. Stunning views of the entire town, ocean and Mt Etna, great balcony, modern decor. It's 5 mins from the beautiful town of Taormina. The rooms are a great size, the showers aren't huge and the pillows... More
