Stayed all last week in the 'blue room' (mainly white, but with blue detailing), at the front. An excellent base from which to explore Taormina and the surrounding area. Once again - I was here last April - I woke each morning to watch the sunrise over the Ionian and the perfectly still and beautiful old town; the roofs of... More

B&B Sorriso is located just 50 meters from the main shopping streets of Taormina. Only 10 minutes walk from the bus station. Getting there is the easy part, getting up to the rooms involves navigating narrow stairs with luggage and is difficult. Room 301 is at the top of the stairs but is worth the effort; a large spotless room... More

We recently spent 4 nights at B&B Sorriso, which is just a short walk from the Corso Umberto and the main sights in town. We booked the room with the private terrace and it was well worth the few extra euros per night. The view from the terrace was wonderful, and we loved sitting out there watching the sunset with...

There are about 4 different rooms, each with their own bathroom and great air conditioner. One of these has a terrace and one has a patio. From any room you can see the Mediterranean without straining... the only challenge one might have, like all of Taormina is the steps. But if steps are an issue, you will need to be... More

VIEW: We had the room with the terrace (there is only one of these in this tiny 4-bedroom B & B) from which almost ALL of Taormina (except Etna, which was "around the corner") can be seen: from the terrace one looks out on the Greek Theatre, the Roman Odeon, medieval buildings on Corso Umberto, the whole stretch of bay...

At the beginning of October, 2013 my husband and I spent five days in Taormina at the B and B Sorriso operated by Fausta Chiovaro and her mother, Malena. Before I had booked this accommodation, I wrote to Fausta numerous times with my questions and she always answered my questions promptly and patiently. This proved to be indicative of the... More

We searched hard for an affordable accomodation in Taormina, situated right next to the city center, and we're glad that we found and booked B&B Sorriso. We stayed in the room with the balcony, which was very small but included anything you need for a short stay: kingsize bed, fridge, air condition, ensuite bathroom and the balcony with chairs and...

We had no trouble finding the b& b. we pulled up close by, unloaded our bags, got a visitors parking pass, directions and found a free park a kilometre away. Mother and daughter couldn't do enough to make us welcome, water or coffee whenever we returned, beautiful breakfasts ...we could smell the pastries in the morning, delicious bread, eggs, tomatoes...
