What a fantastic find. The hotel is located high above Taormina with views across the town, down to the bay and across to Etna. The Bedroom, although simple, was spotlessly clean, very comfortable with a small balcony and a wonderful view. Although the hotel is above Taormina it's an easy 10 minute walk down to the centre. Plus there's a... More

Disappointing. After almost a month of driving around Italy this is only hotel we were not happy in. Apart from the fact the room was too basic, (i.e no working power points so had to pull out TV; no fridge) there wasn’t a happy, generous vibe. For instance, staff wouldn’t top up the fruit salad for guests when it ran... More

Really enjoyed our stay here! The hotel was a little shabby, but clean and comfortable. Views were amazing...shame Etna was hiding behind the clouds throughout our stay. Breakfast was good and I would highly recommend the restaurant at the hotel for evening meals, the food was fantastic! Other have mentioned the steps to the town...there are an awful lot of... More

This hotel is located at a very position in Taormina.When you are sitting at the balcony of your room, at the same time , you can see Etna Mountain and the beautiful Taormina.The rooms are basic ,clean, the staff is helpfull and smiling, and the breakfast is perfect with the view of etna.

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
