This hotel is a three star and it offers the right things within its category. We had a pleasant short stay there and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Taormina as it is only 5 minutes away from the main popular road, Corso Umberto, and walking distance from the bus station. The staff are quite pleasant and very helpful,... More

Very good location at the top end of town with super sea views. Outside pool. 5 min walk to main restaurant area. Hotel is clean but dated but then you are not paying top $ for this place. Aircon was an extra 10E per night but there was a fan in both our reasonable sized ground floor rooms. Buffet breakfast... More

The advice to anyone staying here is to ask to see the room before you check in. By all accounts, the quality is hugely variable. Our room was the size of a double bed with not quite one metre at the sides and the end with one chair tucked under a dressing table. Decoration was pretty grim. Wifi was so... More

This was by far the best value for money we had on our stay in Sicily! The hotel was 3minutes from the arch/ bus stops of Taormina, great location. We were able to check in early (around 11:30am), the room was large, clean, bright and AMAZING views of the bay. Definitely a wow factor! A balcony to sit out on... More

Good value, but the hotels pretty mediocre. Ok breakfast, the pool only gets sun until 1 or 2pm, and the bathroom in our room was a bit smelly. Definitely pay up for a room with a balcony. I was impressed with the size of the balcony, and the view is incredible.

If you are looking for a five star experience then this isn't for you. However, the hotel is a good 3 star, clean and quirky hotel. Previously a convent, it is ideally located in the centre of Taormina. Restaurants and shops a 2 miinute walk away. The view is fab from the hotel. The hotel has a small pool which... More

First off, when comparing prices, remember that aircondition costs extra (€10 for us). Not including AC in the price of the room earns them a lower grade right away. A bad trick to try and appear cheaper when comparing prices. The first room I got had a door directly to the pool area. Nice I thought, but within the first... More
