Stayed at the Splendid as part of sightseeing/language study tour of Sicily in October. The accommodations were standard economy rooms for Europe. It is an older hotel located near the center of Taormina. The breakfast was a standard Continental breakfast - breads were delicious and fresh, wonderful salami and cheese. Good coffee. AMAZING view down onto the beaches. Fun to make the 10 minute trek back and forth to the Babilonia School (great school!) and see moms and dads walking their little kids to school in the morning; waving to the proprietor of the Etna restaurant (delicious pizza and prosciutto crudo); and dropping down past Roman ruins into the quaint village of Taormina. The staff and night clerks were very pleasant to my group - even giving me a heartfelt 'Brava' when I asked for my key by room number in newly learned Italian! I know some of the rooms were not great, but this is not a Marriott and given the fairly low cost of our total itinerary - most sophisticated and experienced travelers would describe this as a typical economy room. No way would I stuff 4 people into a room (on 2 single beds).
Loved seeing daily life from this perspective; very easy walking to all the high points of Taormina [granitas at the Bam Bar]. Felt safe. Nice to be remembered and welcomed by the staff. Lots of guests from all over the world to meet in the lobby.
