A small simple hotel in the centre of Taormina. The owner Joseph is a warm and accommodating host who provides comfortable rooms and a yummy Sicilian breakfast of pastries, cheese and meats. The cappuccino was also delicious and a great way to start the day. The location is fantastic, just one street away from all the cafes, bars, restaurants and... More

Arrived in Taormina and cancelled the hotel we had booked as it was just too far out of town and up the cliffs for us to find relaxing or convenient. Managed to get a refund and head back down to town. After a beer in one of many of the charming squares we decided on Hotel Villa Chiara as its... More

Honestly i don't know what kind of places the other reviewers usually stay in to make them believe this was a good value and clean, but I very much disagree. This place was almost comically bad with the squeaking springs that you could feel digging into your back to the pillows that were like pieces of cardboard and the towels... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is ideally located and all the attractions are all very close. The rates are reasonable compared to other hotels in Taormina. The hotel offers parking spaces. It's hard to find a parking spot in the city so this is just a great plus. It costs 15 euro per day. The breakfast is... More

My husband and I arrived in Taormina in mid-October without a hotel reservation and we were lucky enough to happen upon the Villa Chiara. It's up some stone steps from Corso Umberto (the main street in Taormina). The proprietor, Joseph, was absolutely delightful, and made us feel very much at home while we stayed at his hotel. We were lucky... More

Just spent five nights in the Villa Chiara, its just lovely, the rooms are perfect and the location is great, not too high up and not too many steps. The rooms are spacious and clean, the breakfast was lovely, the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff was a huge added bonus.

We had booked another hotel with better views but as we wanted an extra night we ended up here. There is a roof terrace but not really worth sitting up there for the view. Hotel felt a bit tired with threadbare carpet & the bed was squeaky in room 208 but it was very clean & the owners were really... More

Can’t say enough good things about this hotel. It was very well located, the center of town being just down a stone stairway. It was very clean, very comfortable, with warm & friendly staff. HIghly recommended.

If you want a central, but reasonable, hotel in Taormina, then we reckon you couldn't do better than the Hotel Villa Chiara. We arrived without a booking, thinking that we would have to leave our hire car in the very expensive (up to 30 euros a day) public car park. The very efficient and pleasant proprietor quickly gave us a... More
