This well-located hotel is good value for expensive Taormina. We booked late but arrived early to check in and had the choice of two (small) rooms--we opted for the one facing away from the street to avoid noise. The room and bathroom were small, but this was more than made up for the amazing roof terrace, which in addition to a good breakfast, features an honor bar (drinks available, just write your room number and what you took) and seats for guests to enjoy the fantastic view at other times of day. The hotel's elevator is slow and smallish and there are still quite a few stairs to navigate regardless. Staff are friendly and available.
