We arrived in Taormina via train, and the hotel is about 3 km from the station. Note, the 3km hike is a bit upwards and with no defined sidewalk, it's not the most comfortable while carrying luggage. That being said, we still made it. The concierge greeted us immediately and we checked into our room. The room was more than spacious, clean, and we were on the second floor, which had a great view of the coast!
Having emailed the hotel prior to arrival with a question, they knew we were on our honeymoon and had a bottle of Prosecco waiting in our room, which was such a thoughtful touch to our stay. The hotel also sits minutes walk away from the cable car that takes you into the town, where you can shop and eat to your heart's content. The concierge was helpful in suggesting restaurants both near the hotel and also in town.
We also booked an excursion to Mt Etna while we were there, and the hotel was made aware by the company running it and made sure that we finished breakfast on time and also asked us about it on the way back. We found it nice that they noticed our whereabouts during our stay.
All in all, a wonderful relaxing stay, great location, great staff, great bedroom, great breakfast buffet with a lot of variety, and all in all, our favorite hotel to stay at in Sicily!
