Stayed at the Splendid as part of sightseeing/language study tour of Sicily in October. The accommodations were standard economy rooms for Europe. It is an older hotel located near the center of Taormina. The breakfast was a standard Continental breakfast - breads were delicious and fresh, wonderful salami and cheese. Good coffee. AMAZING view down onto the beaches. Fun to... More

We were booked here as part of a package to come to Taormina and study. We only needed a clean, safe place to stay, as we were studying and traveling all day. This is that to a T. If you are looking for a luxury vacation, do not stay here, but if you aren't looking to spend €300-100/ night, stay... More

This place is a dump. We were placed here by the Babiloina school. It's at the level of a motel 6. I don't know about you, but if I am going to travel 20+ hours to get to a country on vacation, I want to stay some place that doesn't smell and has beds and linens newer than 30 years... More

Staying here for a full week while my study abroad group has a study tour in Taoromina. In total we have 10 rooms, all very respectful college students. No loud noises, appropriate at all times, and generally friendly. While staying here every person we have come in contact with is over the top rude. First off they have about 400... More

it's our second time in this hotel. basic but enough; room was clean, beds were comfortable and a simple breakfast, same as any other hotel in sicily/italy. shower room was clean too and nothing to complain about. staff very helpful. this hotel is just 2 mins walk away from Porta Messina, the entrance to Corso Umberto, so it's very central....

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 Our room was slightly outdated but we weren't hoping to get in to Four...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The hotel is very outdated, it is in very bad need of a re vamp, it is like something from 100years ago.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
