Room was very dark, not enough light at all (natural or artificial). Breakfast was mediocre, whilst I was eating there were pigeons flying up and landing on the bread and eating it. Only one staff member who would occasionally disappear so no one to shoo the birds away. On the plus side the location of the hotel is quite central... More

The hotel was quite acceptable with friendly staff and room clean and sized ok.A lift make things easier.Situated in a great location right in midst of old town.You need to understand that parking station is a fair way away and you need to get the shuttle from same to town gate which is not a hassle as there is no...

The hotel rooms are unacceptable(we were 4 people and booked 2 rooms). They are dirty, dark and bathrooms are old. Need SOME updates and improvement. I believe they sell because of their location but I will never stay there again!

Our stay has been an absolute disaster. Hotel had absolutely none of the amenities described and made us pay for everything extra 26€ a day for access to the sister hotels gym, towels and transfers. Parking was extra as well although was described as included. Staff was rude and didn't take any responsibility. Rooms are the tiniest ever. While sitting... More

This hotel was situated in a great location, with a veranda and a view. The room was big enough for 3 adults and they had a lift for our heavy bags. Breakfast had lots of variety for different pallets. I would recommend this hotel to all and would defiantly stay again

Nice three star hotel in one of the best locations in Taormina. Our room was a nice size, bearing in mind the price and that you only use it to sleep in, the a/c worked quietly and well, the bathroom facilities are bit basic and the shower small - don't drop the soap - but the balcony with a proper...

My review starts hours after we arrive in Taormina, with Alitalia loosing our luggage for 4 days. The hotel in centered in the middle of town between the Messina and Catania property lines The staff did every thing they could do to help us, I can never thank them enough. Gave me advice on where to buy personal things, clothes,... More

I might be a bit harsh but this hotel really isn't nice, the rooms was dark and dingy but if all you want is a place to sleep it's perfect, great location right in the middle of everything and next to the bus stop and cable cart, the rooms are kind of dirty, the bathroom was really old, they need...

This boutique hotel has a great location within Taormina without having to negotiate steps each time you arrive/leave hotel. Also has a nice ambiance and very courteous staff. Our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking Taormina and with a view to the sea. The room however could use some updating/renovation and the shower was very small. Wifi only available... More

This charming hotel is located right on the main drag of Taormina. Perfect. And no steps to be negotiated to get to the street. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely view of the sea. Our balcony made it very charming. We had brought a bottle of Prosecco from Sorrento to enjoy at this hotel. When I asked... More
