Taormina is a picturesque resort in Sicily with a picture postcard scene round every corner. Our mistake was the hotel Villa Bianca and booking through Thomsons. Our room overlooked the Mediterranean and the view was perfect however the road under our window was Sicily's version of the M62. Constant traffic and the trains ran passed our hotel on a very...

The hotel is strategically well situated opposite one of the main beaches. It is the closest hotel to the cable car which transports people between Lower Taormina on the coast and the old village on the hill where all the shops and numerous restaurants are located. The bus terminus which links with the airport and other cities and towns in... More

Simple breakfast and without many options. There was no wifi in the room, only in reception. Clean hotel with helpful staff. Great location. Great view from the apartment and terrace. We were with two pet dogs. We had no problems.

Single rooms are very small, very small bad, Although the view was nice. Wifi-only at reception, which is not convinient. Staff could be a bit more friendly, recommending places to visit. Hotel is good if you are planning to spend time at sea-side.

From arrival at the hotel, reception staff (with the exception of Salvatore) were very unhelpful including one member of staff (no name tag) who was downright rude. Restaurant staff (with the exception of the main waiter) were very helpful and friendly. Main waiter was observed brushing crumbs from the breakfast buffet into his hands and back into the bread basket.... More

So how it started. We booked a standard room with a Bulgarian operator. They used their partner operator in Sicily - Giglio Travel to arrange the details. We arrived and we saw a terrible room - view to a street wit stairs, dark, dirty, nightmare. Immediately requested room change at the reception, ready to pay the difference for a see... More

Now we know that not even the worst review of Villa Bianca fully gave a complete picture. The staff was unhelpfull to completely rude. Could be met with a stare at... More

My sister and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Bianca during our week-long vacation in July. We both absolutely loved the hotel! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room service kept our rooms nice and clean. The delicious complimentary breakfast was a great way to start each new day. The location of the hotel was... More

The hotel is in a very good location; right next to the cable car to take you up to Taormina, and it's right by the beach. The hotel is cleaned very well daily. We didn't pay a lot for this hotel, so I think you need to be realistic with your expectations. It served well as a base in a... More
