Prime spot! Some rooms have a very nice balcony but you have to book in advance.The rooftop terrace is their main attraction with views to the ocean and the duomo at the same time. Parking can be difficult, but can be easy if you park your car in Parking "Porta Catania", 27 euro's for 48 hours, only 5 minute walk.... More

My sister and I stayed here for 5 nights early May. We were greeted by the very welcoming Ernesto who insisted on carrying our suitcases up the 3 flights of stairs! He was lovely and very informative about the area and the history of Taormina and the surrounding areas. The room was very clean with a great view of the... More

Great location, but the place is in desperate need of a caring pair of hands. The shower was broken, there was no hot running water, and to top it all off there was no duvet or throw on the bed - just a pair of sheets. In chilly November this is far from ideal.

Even to avoid? Dear customer, we are sorry that you have not liked our hotel, but we think that is very esagerate your criticism against Villa Floresta. In our rooms there are no broken showers because the water comes out regularly it works with metane gas so you just have to wait 3 minutes for the hot water). All beds... More

It's a B & B in a historic building, well located in the center of Taormina, near one of the gates into the city. Large room, clean and comfortable. Reception very friendly from the nice Ernesto, who talked to us, talking about the region and giving tips of the city. Wi-fi works well in the room. Not sample the breakfast.... More

La caratteristica principale e' l'ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. E' in un palazzo antico con un ingresso bellissimo, le camere sono carine e pulite. La location è fantastica, dispone di un terrazzo on the top con una vista strepitosa!! Qui potete gustare il vostro buon caffè al mattino e dei mini croissants. Questo è fantastico perchè la colazione a Taorimina va... More

I stayed with my sister and our boyfriends for a couple nights at Villa Floresta at the beginning of October. We arrived in Taormina with no reservation and walked around to find a decent place for a good price. Villa Floresta was the perfect find. It has character, is located right in the heart of the town and has all... More

I stayed at Villa Floresta with my husband for the first 3 days of our Sicilian honeymoon. We are both Italian and we totally expected the courtesy and the cleanness Sicilian are famous for, so that didn't disappoint at all. I guess the challenge in Taormina is to find accommodation for a reasonable price, as most of the hotels and... More

Dear Elena, I am very sorry to have read your comment. When you have booked a room for your honeymoon, I reserved a beautiful room with two balconies, sea views and piazza duomo, private bathroom, for which you paid 60 euro with breakfast included (you stayed on 28, 29 and 30 May 2012). A really low price, don't you think?... More

We stayed in this B&B one night this year. The location is great - near the city center, easy access to the city. However the quality of service was average. The rooms were clean but average (weak equipment and poor bed), it was a big noise from outside. Our room did not have a bathroom, we needed to use the... More

Dear Katarina, I'm very sorry for your rewiew. I remember about your staying at Villa Floresta. I asked you at your arrival: what do you like to eat for breakfast, bread or croissant? You answered to me "bread" with butter and marmelade. And the morning after, at breakfast time: what do you like to drink, american coffee, espresso, orange juice,... More

This charming B&B is located near the Dome in the historic center of Taormina. It is in the very heart of the historic center without having any burden of noise during the night and it is relatively close to one of the car parkings outside the city center. The rooms are absolutely marvelous in a captivating romantic way. The breakfast... More

Recently I visited Villa Floresta for the second time, I also stayed there in 2010. It was just as I remembered, this time I had a different room, this one did not have a view but was still fine. This is a simple, clean and comfortable b&b in a fantastic location. It is great value for money. To find fault... More
