“Romantic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We loved this beautiful well run hotel. The staff, our room, the breakfast and the position of the hotel in Taormina were perfect. We stayed on the top floor in a suite with a terrace that overlooked the Mediterranean. We were blown away by how quiet it was and yet so close to all the restaurants and shops of Taormina. Breakfast was served to you from an a la carte menue on the terrace looking out to the sea with views to a smoldering Mt Etna. Absolutely wonderful.

Room Tip: Room 30 was great

Excellent!!

So far the best! I mean in Italy.
Brekki is excellent! They bring u to where u sit down enjoy ur sunshine n the view! Tasty!
Fresh fruit n fresh juice n all.

Room is good size with sea view.
I am very much satisfied.

Beautiful garden with beautiful view.

Staff is helpful. Nth to complain.

Finding a hotel wasn't that easy without navi. We ordered one with a rental car but they weren't prepared so we basically used our tiny guide book map which isn't detailed.. Anyhow wasn't easy but managed it.

Location of the hotel is good as well. Up the steps u get to the busy buzzling street with lots of shop down the via roma there are plenty of restaurants.

Overall it was beyond our expectation. We are very pleased.

An excellent hotel in all respects. Room was bright, roomy and clean with a small terrace overlooking town and ocean - lovely. Great included made to order breakfast on outdoor terrace with ocean views. Very friendly, helpful and efficient service, and glad to provide coffee prior to official breakfast hours. Excellent value in my opinion, especially with early season discount available.

Room Tip: Great views of bay with small terraces on ocean side.

Simple. Comfortable. Perfect. Our room was on the smaller side, but just what we needed. The staff was wonderful, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. The gardens were beautiful. The overall layout of the hotel was a perfect fit for the region. The included breakfast was absolutely delicious--made to order and served on the veranda overlooking the ocean. This hotel is located a short walk from the main street. Would LOVE to visit again!

This is a wonderful hotel. The welcome we received was the friendliest we have ever had. Since we were travelling as a family, we were given The Garden Villa which is very spacious and has direct access to the beautiful hotel gardens where our children adored playing hide and seek. The staff were incredibly helpful and were able to arrange trips for us to visit Savoca, Noto and Siracusa. Delicious breakfasts were served on the terrace with stunning views of snow capped Mount Etna. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel incredibly welcome. We would love to return to this beautiful island and would definitely stay in Hotel Villa Schuler.

Room Tip: The Garden Villa is great for families.
