The climb to the hotel certainly kept us fit, but otherwise the holiday was very relaxing. We stayed in the annexe (Palazzo Santa Caterina), which had a special atmosphere of its own with balcony, views, terrace, access to community gardens, tea and coffee and daily nougat treats. The staff of the hotel were pleasant and helpful and the buffet breakfasts...

Just returned from a one week stay and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Although the access is a little difficult there are lifts to help you bypass the numerous stairs, however the views from the hotel are superb and worth the climb. We stayed on a B&B basis and the breakfast was plentiful and varied. We only had dinner once at...

Excellent Hotel, well situated. Very friendly staff. Loved the kettle in the room with fruit teas. Breakfast very nice and plenty of choice. Went to one of the Buffet evenings (the Sicilian one) and the food and the atmosphere were lovely. We loved the choice of cocktails in the bar. Taormina is definitely the best resort to stay in ,...

Dear Peter, thank you very much for your review. We are happy that you liked our hotel. Not only is it a great base to visit Taormina and the other attractions of eastern Sicily, but perhaps not everybody knows that we also have a small 15th century convent cell. As for the Wi-Fi, we will take your remak into consideration....

We found this hotel was very good and well located. Apart from the Hotel Isabella directly located in the town centre on Corso Umberto, it may be the best located mid-range hotel in Taormina. It is just below the Greek Theatre although to access the latter you have to climb up to the town centre first. The small bus station...

We were moved to this hotel after our Top to Toe of Italy tour with no explanation (well, we will get one) and it didn't disappoint at all. It was right in the middle of Taormina (well 5 minutes walk which is nothing), very quiet with spectacular views. Very clean and friendly staff. The food was excellent - a very...

We returned from this beautiful hotel yesterday and have decided this is one of the best hotels for service, cleanliness and position we have been to in a long time. I loved everything about it, although the pool was too deep for my confident swim across. We watched others and it looked really beautiful. We both had been to Taormina...
