After reading all the reviews we were a bit worried that we are going to end up in the hostel type place. When we got there we were met by Franco (who doesn't leave you alone until you get a drink :)) He was very friendly. Our room was slightly outdated but we weren't hoping to get in to Four... More

The hotel is very outdated, it is in very bad need of a re vamp, it is like something from 100years ago. Our view that should have been a sea view was a view looking into the room of the house across from us. The hotel was full of students and it was one of the noisiest hotels I have... More

Towels are only replaced once a week, and even then, it was told to us that they were not bleached between each use. So for all you know, you're getting a stranger's used towel that has just been muddled in dirty water and dried. Secondly, don't expect a sheet on the bed or anything close to a pillow. Thirdly, bathroom... More

Clean, pool, good prices, free wifi in the lounge, central, quiet, big balcony on top floor... The breakfast was OK, but I rather went to BamBar for a great granita and a brioche. Helpful staff, new towels everyday. OK beds. Good location.

Beware of the owner's outlandish pets. My husband was eaten by a crocodile while swimming in the pool.They then refused to offer a refund for the last three nights he did not use. The tea was not up to standard. I very nice area to visit but spoilt by wildlife. I shall not visit again unless they provide a good... More

If you think like me that a hotel is a place to dump your luggage while you tour the city and a place to crash when you are dead tired, then this is the hotel for you. It is inexpensive compared to other hotels in Taormina. It is within 5 minutes walk from Corso Umberto, which is the main street... More

We bought a cheapish last minute trip and chose solely based on the location of the hotel, which is central. We did not expect anything else. But we got a room with a sea view :) The room was clean and OK, all the necessary things were there (e.g. hair dryer, clothes hangers). The street noise was quite loud, but... More

Stayed in Sept 2013 for 4 nights. Found the hotel to be basic. On the plus side its in a good location, the pool area is quite small but perfectly fine and the rooms were very clean. The balcony although extremely small had a nice view of the bay and Mt Etna. On the negative side the lift was tiny,... More

A hotel voucher service took us from airport to the hotel and the Australian woman did this was excellent. Many times we have had such a service; never has this included trips on the way to the hotel and again on the way back to the airport. We had written the hotel and asked to be upgraded and this was... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in September. The hotel room was a good size, but the shower was hardly working. The Air Conditioning in the room costs is an extra €10 a night...this hotel will squeeze you for every last penny. Considering that Taormina are now also charging a city tax, these hotels should be inspected as to the... More
