Villa Astoria is a fantastic hotel in a great location. Right across the road from the bus terminal, not far from the town centre and close to the cable cars for the beach (even though I insisted on walking due to the daily consumption of ricotta cannolis). My room was big, clean and bright with the best views! The bed... More

Our stay in Taormina was such a wonderful experience and it was mostly due to this great hotel! Our host was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. He gave us plenty of information of places to visit in the surrounding area, as well as, helped us book excursions to Mt. Etna and Siracusa. The hotel is conveniently located to the bus... More

Centrally located just opposite the bus terminus this small hotel has rooms with amazing views of the sea from the back. The staff is extremely helpful and the breakfast is abundant. If you are coming from Catania, it´s best to ensure that your flight back is not early in the morning so as to be able to get the bus... More

Spent an extra few days travelling solo after a family holiday in Taormina at Villa Astoria. Maurio and Francesca made me feel totally at home, whilst helping me with a whole host of local knowledge. I certainly wouldn't have enjoyed my stay as much without their friendly enthusiasm, and I am indebted to them both for making my holiday significantly... More

Just spent 6 days here and was very glad I chose it. It is a small family-run place and as long as you know this, and are not expecting late night bars, or all night reception, all is good. My room was simple but a decent size, bed was decent, always hot water and the cleaning was of a high... More

Our stay at Villa Astoria was perfect! Was impressed by how welcoming Mauro and his wife Francesca were. They are very helpful and try to accommodate you in the best way they can. The location of the hotel is perfect.. you just cross the road from the bus terminus and a 5 minute walk from Taormina center. The room was... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Owners - Mauro and Francesca were really helpful with decent restaurant recommendations and things to do and see. The Villa has a great location - 5 min walk to the main Taormina attractions, and 2 min walk to the cable car down to the beach. Also, conveniently, the bus station is located across the... More

A small but charming hotel with a most welcoming and friendly proprietor offering clean and comfortable bed and breakfast in a very convenient location on this beautiful hilltop town. Just across the street from the main bus terminal which connects with the airport at Catania about 1.5 hours away and at a €7.50 fare. Mauro and Francesca treat their guests... More

The owners, Mauro and Francesca could not have been more helpful. Mauro's restaurant recommendations were most useful as there are several overpriced mediocre restaurants in Taormina. Our room had a great sea view with all the usual facilities and was spotlessly clean. The location is great with the Catania airport bus terminus (screened and not noisy) across the road and...
