We spent two weeks in this hotel and found it delightful, friendly and the staff ever helpful. Breakfast is a bit disappointing but I believe this would probably be true about most Italian hotels for visitors from the UK or the USA. An earlier reviewer complained about cold coffee. Why go to Trip Advisor about that? Raise the issue with... More

The only thing that his location is not bad everything else is BIG ZERO!Hotel officially a three star hotel, just do not know by whom ? Dirty hallways, dust everywhere, shower leaking through the cabin where you can not even turn around. At breakfast there is no need to go because you will not even have anything to eat. There...

I've been in this hotel at the midle od september, and this is worst "hotel" ever! There is a crazy family, they are the owners of this hole, and they dont know absolutely nothing about the hospitality. The rooms are very dirty, the beds smell like urine, ad if you put ON aircontidion, u will get a bunch of dust... More

I love this quirky little hotel. We stayed for 2 nights at the end of a month long trip to Sicily while we visited Mt Etna. It's right on the seafront and has underground parking. It is family owned and operated and they are lovely....very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms are quirky with quite old fashioned furniture... More

We stayed at this hotel due to its proximity to Taormina. That was it's only good point. It is across a road from the beach, but this area is super busy from May through late September, and even the hotel itself runs a late night cafe out the south side. Therefore with SS114 right next to the hotel and the... More

The hotel is close to the beach and a short walk to the station. There is plenty of free parking on the streets outside. But the rooms were small, equipped with a tiny tv, dull, smelled damp and the towels were like table cloths. The staff are pleasant and breakfast is ok.

This hotel came as a surprise because our hotel in Taormina kicked us out because of previous reservations. We decided to go down the hill and give it a try. The town is nothing to write home about but the hotel was beautiful, great breakfast, great staff and the best gelato out the door and to the left.

Lovely hotel, with charming rooms and interesting interior. Staff was helpful and friendly. Good connection to Catania (its about 45km) and Taormina. Breakfast was poor and monotonous, but with beautiful view from dining terrace. Small bathroom...

This hotel was chosen by our tour company. It is different from most in that the furniture is old & quirky though not quite antique. The reception rooms are nice & the attractive breakfast room on the top floor has wonderful views. Breakfast itself was mediocre with the same things on offer each day & never enough fruit salad. Our... More

Our room was in front of the sea but because of bad isolation, we had terrible nights. We took 2 nights and the room wasn't cleaned the one day we had. Espresso coffee is not included in the breakfast, you have to pay extra for that. Finally, we were kindly advise to use the parking lot of the hotel even... More
