We stayed at hotel Corsaro while visiting mount Etna, it was a beautiful hotel which was tastefully decorated and in a superb location with views of Etna and from the balcony we saw the lava slopes which resembled a moonscape. The rooms were large and very well equipped and included free wifi which actually worked. The staff were very informative... More

We had a balcony. Whilst we were there there was a small eruption showing a splash of red in the sky above etna. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced but you should book in advance if you want to eat. 5 mins walk from the cable car lets you miss the crowds, and whilst we were there, the... More

Fantastic location, the most friendly and informative staff of all the hotels we stayed in in Sicily (we stayed in another 4 hotels on this trip) the staff were excellent in all of the other hotels but Davide and Alessandro were just the best. The evening meal was excellent! €20 for 3 courses and it was the best meal we... More

I would like to thank Hotel Corsaro for making our stay an excellent one! Davide who speaks very good English, made sure we had everything we needed for our fashion shoot. Food, wifi, rooms, etc.. All were excellent. I highly recommend anyone staying for a relaxing weekend, to stay there. A few meters down one can get the cable car... More

We arrived at Corsaro on a day that Mount Etna was erupting. Corsaro is REALLY up there! It is a gorgeous hotel with 360 views and is part of an intimate village with a few gift shops, a few other hotels, and a few cafes. After the daytrippers go back down to Taormina or beyond, only the hearty are left... More

We booked the room and made a note that we would like to reserve a table for dinner and if possible get a room with a view. We used one of the booking sites the day before and while we were sight seeing another part of Sicily. We did however get an e-mail reply with the standard information about excursions... More

We arrived late at night, but the man at the reception was extremely nice!! He explained all excursions, answered all of our questions (millions of them), and was able to share with us his love of the volcano. This certainly made our stay. The room was great, super clean, wifi is great. Only downside: the next day we wanted to... More

Stayed at this hotel 2 nights. Got there late on the 9th but the proprietor waited for us and had the kitchen stay open to feed us! What a welcome. First class facilities, good food, friendly staff and just a couple hundred meters away from the cable cars which took us to 2500 meters. I will stay there again!

Stopped there one night on our way to the beach. We regretted it was not two, to make things a little more leisurely. The hotel well maintained and well built, with warm and soundproof materials and windows. Staff was very courteous. Having booked two double rooms, were given two quad rooms on the top floor. Bath decently lit and shower... More

The place to stay if you are a serious hiker and don't want to drive up and down the mountain at the beginning and end of your days on Etna. It is at 2,000 metres up and right near the cable cars to easily start and end your Etna trip. However you will find much better hotels and restaurants down... More
