The hotel is located on top of Taormina so be prepared to walk up and down the stairs that lead to town. It's only a 10 min walk though so nothing major if you're in a relativelly good shape. The hotel is quite old but the rooms were cleaned every day to an excelllent standard. We had a room with... More

We chose this hotel coz of Etna view and fact that it's on the hill so you can enjoy city landscape. Hotel is fantastic! Small family business with incredibly helpful staff. Room looks like the picture, our bathroom was clean and well maintained. Our room has nice balcony, where we could enjoy spectacular view over the town, sea and Etna.... More

Very run down and shabby hotel. However, it does have great views and the potential to be much nicer. You can park on the road nearby and it is an easy stroll to down town Taormina. Bathroom in particular needs a refurb. Our room had no balcony.

A great hotel situated with in the hills of Sicily. Ideal spot for anyone wanting a quiet friendly family run hotel. The views from the hotel balcony are magnificent, with mount Etna clear to see. From the hotel I was able to see lava spilling over the top of Etna. All food from breakfast to set meals, exceeds all expectations... More

We chose this particular hotel because of its spectacular view to Mt Etna. The hotel is a bit on the older side, there are a lot of stairs from the first ground to the top (and no elevator) but I think it only makes the hotel more charming. There is a lovely garden with lemon trees (and restaurant uses their... More

I loved staying here. Pino and Elena looked after this solo traveller so well. The view from my balcony was exquisite and gave me front row seats to the nightly port fireworks (Sicily's national sport, says Pino), and the food at the restaurant upstairs was delicious. I liked being away from the main drag a little bit, and wouldn't hesitate... More
