I enjoy giving excellent reviews of places that I have stayed around the world. I also love to stay in B&Bs as they provide a unique experience that one cannot generally get from a hotel. I also however love Trip Advisor as a way to provide honest feedback about my travel experiences so that other travelers can better decide how to choose places to stay and spend their money wisely. I share many of the positive feedback given to Davide and Lya and this B&B as a nice place with many positive attributes. I choose B&B Agon because of the near unanimous love and affection for this place. Yes what everyone says is true and it is a lovely place with caring owners. However I paid extra to have an ocean view and yes I did get an ocean view, with the lovely sound of the ocean that I love to hear. However no one has commented on the fact that this view comes with a cost- the room is on the road across from the train station. All night long was the sound of cars going by and trains pulling into the station. In fact I am awake again and decided to write this review after I was again awakened by the train. Yes I chose to keep my windows open and could have closed them to get a better sleep, but dammit I paid extra to have a room on the ocean side and didn't think that I should have to close all the windows in order to sacrifice the very experience that I paid extra for. Could I have complained to the owners about paying extra for the room and ask for a discount? I am not asking for a discount because I realize this is a business they love and perhaps after a long time just dont recognize the sounds of the train and cars all night long. In fact it occurred to me that this must be the same problem for many places along the strip in Taormina. As a result, if street noise bothers you I would recommend staying in one of the places in the old town of Taormina up on the mountain or perhaps get another room here that does not face the street.
