Breakfast in the patio at the front of the hotel was always a nice start to the day and Mauro gave really good suggestions for sites to see ( and avoid), restaurants to go... More

Very well located, in front of the bus terminal, and next to the funicular to the beaches, 5 minutes walk to the historic center. Comfortable rooms (prefer the back rooms). Mauro and Francesca, who manage everything, are excellent.

Myself and my husband have just returned from our fourth visit to Taormina. We have stayed at Villa Astoria every time and would not consider staying anywhere else. The villa is a beautiful building with character, decorated accordingly, with amazing hosts in the form of Mauro and Francesca. They have a great local knowledge and I would encourage everyone to...
