The Villa Costanza is really an apartment rental rather than a hotel, which means that you get some additional facilities and a little bit of extra space. First, the Villa Costanza apartment is located well, with a five minute walk to the one end of the main (pedentrianised) road.
the apartment itslef has an amazing view - particularly towards Etna and south down the coast. the apartment we had was fairly small and the furnishing are not luxurious, but they are perfectly fine for what you need. And considering that most accomodation in Taormina is fairly expensive, I think the Villa Coastanza is good value.
the hosts were very nice, and if you have a car with you, then you should take note that there is off-street parking available!
We stayed in Taormina for the last few days before Christmas and it was like a picture-postcard - you really couldn't imagine a prettier place. Yes it is touristy, which means the prices are high but if you limit yourself to buying only a few trinkets it's fine - otherwise it is a must-see destination.
