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.

We spent three nights here early in September while the weather was still hot in Taomina. Air conditioned rooms with fan meant that this did not create any issues. Our hosts Mauro and Franchesca were extremely welcoming. Mauro entertained us with his humor, views on Sicilain culture, gave us tips on what to see and where to eat ( and... More

We spent 3 nights in August and we loved it! Mauro is a wonderful host, gave us a priceless advice and took a good care of our car and luggage. Our room was spotless and the breakfast quite substantial with a plate of ham and cheese and freshly baked croissant. Nice old building, pretty garden and convenient location adds up... More

We spent 3 enjoyable nights here in September. The owner, Mauro, was a terrific guy and provided us with lots of help on restaurants, wine bars, best way to get to Mt Etna and interesting towns around Taorrmina. The location was excellent - close enough to the old town to walk there in a few minutes but away from the... More
