Overall this hotel was great! It wasn't perfect but nothing worth mentioning. The hotel is in a great location and has a beautiful view of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna. If you are a picture hound like me, you will get some beautiful photo's of the sunset, Mt. Etna plus in the town itself. My favourite was taking... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights in Taormina after a friend advised us to, but we were very disappointed. Only two things are good about the hotel: the room had a balcony with a lovely view, and breakfast is good. All other bad things: the hotel was close to a pub with live music, meaning that you couldn't go... More

Pleasingly I booked a room with a balcony, sea view and views of Mt Etna - and that's exactly what I got. You must stay at this hotel at least once for the architecture, it's absolutely an eccentric artist's vision wonderfully executed. It's in a great location, clean spacious room but hot and for some reason the hotel wouldn't allow... More

Very clean and fairly good sized room (some may say small) breakfast is adequate. The views if you have one are excellent. The main reasons for not scoring this higher is the very very loud music from a close by bar and the poor service at reception. Not sure we would choose this hotel again

The hotel is located in the middle of the town overlooking the whole town. We were very luck to be given a room with an excellent view of this little town. With a large balcony you can relax and enjoy the view. The weather permitting you can also see Mt. Etna but we were not lucky because of high humidity... More

Very good city hotel. The location is absolutely perfect. Great base for exploring Taormina area. The view from the room and terrace is fantastic. The room was a bit small, furniture is outdated but I did not mind that. It`s nice and clean. Breakfast was standard, nothing to exiting but good. My only complaint is that there is no fridge...

We were told about this hotel by an American couple we met at lunch in Palermo. We asked, on their recommendation, to get a room overlooking Etna. We ended up with a room overlooking the sea and it was fab. The view is stunning and we had a couple of beers before heading out just looking across the bay (and... More

Beautiful hotel, right in the centre of Taormina. Rooms are clean but nothing special. Breakfast buffet is plentiful. The view from the terrace is amazing, they have tables there as well, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine on a warm Italian evening. They even have cute cats who sunbathe there during the day. My only complaint is the very... More

I've stayed a week in Velo d'oro,the main positive thing is that it is perfectly located,when you get down the stairs you're right in casa umberto. The room they have given us was queit dated,very old furnitere en a nasty looking bath. The view was a little bit disapointing,we faced only on a Sicilian family's backyard, no see view at... More
