“Stunning views, beautiful gardens, lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

There may be other very good hotels in Taormina but I'd never look. This one is perfect for me: comfortable beds, great soundproofing, wonderful views, beautiful garden and pool, friendly service, very good breakfast. Just make sure you get a room with a sea view.

Spectacular views and convenient position for exploring Taormina on foot. In addition a highly efficient and well run hotel with pleasant helpful staff. The grounds and pool are beautifully kept and the spacious terrace leading from our room was provided with comfortable chairs and low table so we spent a lot of time relaxing and making the most of the view. We were pleased to be visiting Taormina out of season, yet even so we appreciated the calm peaceful atmosphere of the hotel and gardens.

We would highly recommend the Belvedere Hotel - far better than a normal 3 star. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive and the views from the hotel and gardens across to Etna and the coastline are fantastic with very comfortable and clean rooms. Breakfasts were excellent too. The lemon trees and sweet perfume of jasmine leading down to the pool in the steep Italian garden were delightful. An absolute treat!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have larger balconies with particularly good views. There is a lift!

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Loved the hotel and the location. A short walk to the main street, beautiful views of Mt Etna and Taormina. Loved the big garden - lots of wonderful aromas from the flowers, lemon trees and orange trees. Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel belies its 3* status. Every aspect is very good indeed, from room to garden to pool. we enjoyed our stay, with very helpful and welcoming staff, fantastic view from the room, and everything as it should be. Special commendation to the concierge who parked the hire car while I watched in admiration! We'd certainly stay here again and recommend it unreservedly.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are best - worth the slight extra.

We returned to this beautiful hotel a third time because we were charmed by its quiet elegance and friendly ambience.
Its lovely garden is filled with the perfume of the Mediterranean and its pool is set overlooking the Ionian Sea where lunch is served daily.
The breakfast is delicious and exceeds the standard of most hotels where we have stayed previously in Taormina. It is close to Corso Umberto and to many excellent restaurants which the staff are only too happy to recommend.
Our accommodation was spacious and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: The higher priced rooms were extremely good value

This is a fantastic hotel in Taormina. Very friendly and helpful staff, we arrived in Taormina with no plans and were recommended great locations and restaurants to visit within and around Taormina. Our room with a sea view was perfect, very clean and comfortable. Plenty of good food at the buffet breakfasts. We highly recommend this hotel.
