“Exceptional Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We booked this hotel for three nights in Taormina and ended up staying five.

Great two star hotel - in Australia it would be the equivalent to a three star hotel. Big clean room with a comfortable bed, balcony, big and clean bathroom. Only drawback was the wifi connection (patchy at best) but with so many cafes offering free wifi around you, it's not too much of an issue.

The location is five star. Right in the heart of the main town. Close to absolutely everything. Excellent and friendly service.

Will definitely stay here again for the comfort, location and value should we return to beautiful Taormina!

Room Tip: We had room at the back of the property and although we didn't have a view of much, it was very...

We stayed in Victoria Hotel for 4 nights. We do not regret it. Should we make another holiday in Taormina, surely we will be booking this Hotel. The Staff was really, welcoming, nice and helpful to all our queries. Our room had a window overlooking Corso Umberto. The room and bathroom very clean, we would say spotless. A/C in good working order. Lift available.

Well run 2 star hotel in 4 star location - right on the main thoroughfare in Taormina. Staff were really helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Ours had a small balcony. Also had a fridge and safe. Book a car space in advance as hard to park in town!

I just got back from Hotel Victoria In Taormina - this was my third time staying there. I have reviewed this hotel before and I thought it was perfect then - but I figured I would add a new review because they haved added some new features. The rooms now have mini refridgerators, new flat screen t.v.s and free wi-fi. I didn't think this hotel could get any better, but I assure you will find everything you need in Taormina at Hotel Victoria.

We discovered this hotel just by chance, walking in the evening in the streets of Taormina! This hotel has a very central location, the rooms have a double glass so even if your balcony is facing the bustling main street of Taormina, you don't hear anything inside! Breakfast was delicious and staff very friendly! We definitely recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a nice hotel with character and great location in the heart of Taormina! the price was more than reasonable as well and if we one day come back to Taormina, this is where we will stay for sure again!

Excellent location in the city center (in the hilly Taormina this is essential). Modern hotel with a traditional Sicilian look. The whole hotel is air conditioned, hygiene is at the very high level, we always had clean towels too. Safe box in the room with no extra fees. Mini refrigerator (very useful thing). WiFi in the room, only one device at time :( . Samsung widescreen TV with CATV (multilanguage channels, English, German, Russian, French, Italian ...). Our room has terrace with look on Corso Umerto which is pedestrian zone. Good sound insulation, no sound from the outside when we close terrace door. Very friendly and helpful staff. Mediterranean breakfast. Lift. Parking. Excellent value/maney ratio. If we ever again resided in Taormina that will be at hotel Victoria.

Room Tip: If you prefer to be in the center of events look for the room with terrace that look on Corso Umerto...

Pros:

Nice and helpful staff.
Bathroom in good shape & modern.
Free safe-box in the room.
Quiet room at the rear of the hotel, with AC, we used the heating system because it was cold outside. Elevator in the building.
Decent breakfast, nothing fancy.
Almost a 3* hotel, probably with 2* because of the poor common areas, lobby.


Cons:

Some personal staff don't know english, but you can survive.


All in all good value for the money.
Recommended in my opinion.
