My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel during our trip in early Sept. This was our first time to Sicily and Taormina and the hotel was just perfect. First it's location cannot be beat, right off the Main Street and few steps away from the public parking lot where we parked our car for the duration of our stay. The hotel was lovely, small and intimate, I think only 3-4 rooms per floor and only 4 floors. The front desk staff was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and always would have a solution to a question or request, their suggestions on couple of restaurants were very good too. The staff at the front desk, had 3 different ones on the 3 nights we stayed just made you feel that they loved what they were doing and were eager to help its guests, made you feel as if you were the only guests there. We actually ran into one of the gentleman while we were walking in town, I guess it was his day or afternoon off, he remembered us and remembered our name, was so kind.
We had a sea view room, had a balcony facing the ocean and it was amazing. The hotel lobby and room was extremely clean and of nice quality, furniture very nice and appropriate to the style of the city, bed was most comfortable, bathroom perfect, we are used to smaller European bathroom, the size was fine, shower was great and nice bathroom toiletries, towels and everything was in abundance as compared to other places that sometime would limit what they provide, almost as if they over provided few items. Breakfast was delicious and something to look forward every morning, wide variety given on their roof top deck, just cannot be missed, great choices including awesome crepes and expresso coffees and not to mention all the sweets!
Also, upon check in the hotel provided you a package which included helpful information and suggestions regarding Taormina, some places to visit or try out, it was great to have it directly on their welcome package, also included a page on how to log on with the WiFi, also helpful they simply thought of everything to make it easy. There is also a computer on the 2nd floor in case you don't have your own computer or iPad, there was never issue using it.
This is not a hotel for those who are seeking to party or for large families with small children as the rooms likely only accommodate two per room and as I said it is more boutique like, small and intimate but a place that should not be missed. If you are a couple, a single person, or few couples seeking a quality intimate hotel this is your place, do not look further, you will not regret.
Many thanks for a lovely stay! When we return we will absolutely stay there again!
Sea view room is lovely and assume quieter that those above the front street.
