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

We stayed here for our week in taormina and to be honest we were sceptical before our arrival due to mixed reviews... But all went very well.. Room was spacious and clean, we had a balcony and sea view.. A must for this hotel as view is amazing... Room was cleaned to a high standard every day and staff were... 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

I'd love to give this hotel a better review. The staff and service were very good, breakfast was decent as well as the end of year 'cenone'. The hotel has rooms with views that range from magnificent to good. It has the potential to be above the 'no frills' category. However the lingering memories are the lack of WIFI. availability...

A very cold reception when we arrived. We were given our room and found that it had a double bed instead of twin beds, so I went back to reception to see if it could be rectified....I was quite prepared to remake the beds myself with single sheets, but was told every thing was locked up! Eventually, after much debate,... More

I stayed at Vello D'Oro for 2 weeks - in room 311, to be precise. The room is somewhat on the small side and the bathroom even more so, but nevertheless, this is one of the hotels I'll remember as on of the nicest ones I've ever stayed at. And one of the reasons is obvious. I had a balcony... More

The location is very central and the near stairs take you down to the main road of Taormina. The view from the fourth floor is amazing! The rooms are tidy and clean, but you need to be lucky because you may end up in a very small room for the same price of a big one. We got a room... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling through Sicily, although a little difficult to get there by car (really narrow tight roads) parking could be a problem advise to request it, we were very lucky we got a space outside the hotel, Free, usually charge 10 euro a day, The views of Taormina were spectacular rooms plain but very clean....

【About the room】 The sea view is incredible. Room is very big, clean and tidy. The design of the room is very good too, from my point of view. They use white as the main color, as well as some blue and yellow to make the room perfectly matched to the sea&sky view. The small balcony is also good. Very... More
