After realizing we needed to pull into the street going the wrong way-- va bene-- we arrived at the hotel to find a smoking and supremely cold receptionist-- she offered little help re parking-- note - you have to reserve ahead-- but grudgingly assisted after a few words. The room was lovely but the a/c was overtaxed-- making for some... More

This was a fantastic spot for us. Our room was beautiful and had a large sea facing terrace. Found all the staff professional and welcoming, and the breakfast was fine. Everything was kept very clean and check in/check out etc. was done professionally and efficiently. Loved the art around the hotel and thought the terrace bar was just great for... More

We booked two rooms at this hotel through an online site, and when we arrived, we decided the representations made online about this hotel were false. For one, the hotel does not have WIFI in the rooms. They only have WIFI in the lobby and it was poor. They advertise to provide ironing service, laundry service, room service and a... More

We booked a sea view room for our 5 night stay. The room was very large with a separate lounge area which led onto the small balcony with table and chairs. Our balcony was very small, but some other rooms had much larger ones. The decor in the room is a little tired, but the beds were comfortable. I was... More

The staff were unhelpful, there was no control for the air conditioning and when we asked for one the answer was NO, this was also the answer for extra pillows. The shower was small and the shower head couldn't be adjusted because it was broken so if you were under four foot you were fine. The wi fi only worked... More

We were a group of thirty, the Hotel is old and smelly, due to age, cement smell, lack of Air, Musty. The beds were comfortable, but due to the above it is not a hotel you will be keen to do anything other than sleep, then go out. The bathroom is tiny, the shower is about sixty by sixty CMs... More

We arrived at this hotel with a reservation through Booking.Com and after dragging our suitcases through the small cobblestone street arrived at reception to be greeted with a very sour and rude woman who told us 'sorry we are full we have arranged somewhere else for you to stay at comparable level and close by' . The hotel was definitely... More

Great location in the heart of Taormina. Quite a big room and bathroom compared to Italian standard. Big balcony overlooking sea was beautiful addition make sure you request at time of booking. Breakfast usual Italian fair. Wifi only in lobby. Cannot control aircon.

Location is good and had good views from sea facing room however the hotel room needs badly to be refurbished, no control on air conditioning and it is switched off at 2 am till 6 am when you need it most to have a good night sleep especially in the month of August. Definitely we would not come here again.
