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

Stayed in this hotel for one week in September. How disappointing. Everything about it was average,breakfast was very limited, no fruit available ( couldn't believe this ) just bread,cheese,ham, boiled eggs. Rooms were very small, tv didn't work, pool was tiny. Taormina is beautiful but very expensive, so we spend a lot of our time outdoors rather than coming back... More

The rooms are very simple. The swimmingpool very small. The location is not bad, but has no parking, you must park far and expensive about 15 eur/day to be taken into account when comparing other prices.

I stayed at this hotel for a week in June - we asked for a room with a view and we certainly got that, it was stunning. The room was quite small and so was the balcony, it was always kept clean and was perfect for the price we paid There is free wifi in the lobby area and the... More

We have just had a week at the Hotel Splendid. We did the normal thing and read the reviews which varied a lot, some not filling us with confidence ! Delighted to say we had a fabulous time staying here and will be returning yearly. The entrance lobby is cool,clean,spacious and welcoming, with a large reception area, bar, lounge seating... More
