We arrived at this hotel with a reservation through Booking.Com and after dragging our suitcases through the small cobblestone street arrived at reception to be greeted with a very sour and rude woman who told us 'sorry we are full we have arranged somewhere else for you to stay at comparable level and close by' . The hotel was definitely... More

Great location in the heart of Taormina. Quite a big room and bathroom compared to Italian standard. Big balcony overlooking sea was beautiful addition make sure you request at time of booking. Breakfast usual Italian fair. Wifi only in lobby. Cannot control aircon.

Location is good and had good views from sea facing room however the hotel room needs badly to be refurbished, no control on air conditioning and it is switched off at 2 am till 6 am when you need it most to have a good night sleep especially in the month of August. Definitely we would not come here again.

The hotel's location is superb and our terrace had the most spectaculars views towards Mt Etna. It was within easy reach of the main tourist strip of cafes and restaurants and a laundrette just down the road. The only problem is parking and would definately recommend any one attempting to drive there to park in the multi storey car park... More

Once again, the hotel staff was not very friendly or helpful, quite disappointing. However, the meals were fabulous and the wait staff was excellent!! There were views of the water and Mount Etna that were breathtaking! We even saw lava flowing from Mount Etna from the rootop bar. That was a very nice place to have drinks and relax. We... More

This is a nice hotel with various forms of art on the walls along the corridors. People were friendly at the front desk. Breakfast was part of the fee and was fine (but heir idea of orange juice and mine are quite different!). My room did' have much of a view but was spacious. I understand the complaints about loud...
