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...

We were lucky enough to get a free upgrade to a room with a view and a little balcony. Room 12 . The owner was so welcoming and took time to chat and suggest places to go, better than the tourist board! We paid for the parking but felt it was well worth it as we watched a number of... More

Stayed one night. Nothing to complain about except the guy in the reception that let us knew that he was fed up with tourists. Funny but bitter :) 15 min walk to the beach (steep steps). 5 min walk to Taormina "tourist" town. Parking available.

We stayed at the Villa Astoria and enjoyed our stay--the room was a good size. The view from our room was fantastic; the staff were all friendly; a nice breakfast spread to include cheese and meat; and it was close to the bus station. Though a bit worried about the bus station and noise...don't worry, you don't hear the buses... More

Lovely service and staff, amazing view (we requested it, so make sure you do as not all rooms face the same way), excellent breakfast, good location (few minutes into the main/shopping part of town and right opposite the bus stop!). Couldn't fault it.

Mauro is the perfect host. We arrived after 9 PM, called him & he waited for us. His restaurant recommendations were spot on and got us superior service. The rooms are comfortable with good size bathrooms. Breakfast in the garden is wonderful, except for the road noise (villa Astoria is across from the bus depot). The walk into the center... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights in October, 2014. The place was clean and comfortable with a nice breakfast of juice, coffee or tea, rolls, croissants, cheese and meats outside in the garden. The greatest part was Mauro and his Wife Francesca. Mauro set us up with all the right restaurants. He recommended a small shop for arancini... More

This is a very well located hotel. The standard is simple and clean with some rooms having fantastic views of the bay. The owner Mauro is very welcoming, helpful and humorous person who makes you feel at home. We would definitely like to return.
