We had wonderful time in La Pensione Svizzera. The breakfast is very good and the staff is very kind. We got towels for beach that helped us a lot. The cable car is 100m from the Hotel. The street where hotel is is calm and we had the room with the sea view which was very nice.

We loved this hotel. From the moment we walked in the staff could not have been more charming or helpful. The location is terrific- particularly if you arrive by bus since it is just up from the bus station while still an easy walk into Taormina. And the hotel is just next door to the funicular (an experience in itself!)... More

This is a lovely old four story building overlooking the straights of Messina. It's a lovely place, everyone was very friendly in a relaxed and helpful way. We stayed three nights and loved it, even though we had one of the basement rooms which didn't have a view and where you could hear breakfast being prepared above early each morning.... More

Taormina is historic and lively town and Hotel Svizzera is at the centre of it; easy access to the beaches (public bus 1 euro), bus stop less than 100 meters, train station 3 euro by bus every 15 minutes. (Plan a day trip to Cefalu by train). The bus station provides all kinds of tours with lovely bus drivers and... More

Location location but you need more, lovely people, smiles and happiness made our stay for 9 nights even more perfect. Beautiful inside and out! Great breakfast too. Highly recommend at least 5 nights or more. Taormina is a great place connected to all other parts through train, public bus and or tours! Bus to the Tropicana beach is the best.... More

The people at the hotel were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The building was beautiful and the breakfast was the best of the trip with a nice terrace setting. The shops were near, as well as the bus stop and the access to the beach. We enjoyed this place and highly recommend it.

Room was clean and comfortable. We had a super balcony overlooking the coastline. Breakfast was the highlight - good food and wonderful coffee, on a lovely terrace overlooking the sea. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Provides beach towels if you want to go to the beach (which we did).

A decent little hotel in the upper part of Taormina, very conveniently situated for the main area of shops and restaurants and very close to the cable car to the lower town and beach. Friendly English speaking staff. Clean and well kept rooms. If you are in your own car they have an arrangement with a car park just down... More

We stayed here six nights and we're delighted with our choice. We were exceptionally lucky and having booked a superior room with sea view and balcony, we actually got room 7 which has a large terrace with a stunning view of the coast below and the chance of sitting out in the sun. Only one floor up too. We hadn't... More
