Honestly i don't know what kind of places the other reviewers usually stay in to make them believe this was a good value and clean, but I very much disagree. This place was almost comically bad with the squeaking springs that you could feel digging into your back to the pillows that were like pieces of cardboard and the towels that felt like thick sandpaper. The shower was just slanted drain in the corner of the tiny bathroom with a shower curtain that was very plainly dirty and needed replacing.
Despite the fact that I often woke up to the maids vacuuming outside my room, I know for a fact that they did not vacuum my room. Also when I checked in there were other people's hairs in the sink. The whole place made me feel gross and dirty and uncomfortable. I was often woke up by people outside my room or outside the hotel being very loud-- I did not sleep well with that in combination with the terrible mattress and pillows. There's not really AC -- there was one in my room but no way to turn it on. The wifi rarely worked, and when it did, it was like the internet from 1999.
I don't know how much other places cost in Taormina but honestly I would have spent a bit more a night so I didn't have to stay in this place. I really do not recommend this hotel at all.
