We stayed here for two nights in May. The hotel is situated in the most convenient place in Taormina. Firstly, it's very near the main street Corso Umberto. Secondly, it's quite high, so you get a breathtaking view to the town, sea and Etna from the terrace. It's a shame, that the weather for us was not so good, a bit rainy and cloudy, so I'm sure the view is even much more better when it's sunnier.
We have chosen the cheapest room with no view, but luckily got a room with a very small balcony and a view to a beautiful garden. It was nice. We also had the luck to find a free parking lot, although the hotel has only three of them. The room was ok, furniture not so new, but for the price we got, it was better then we expected. Although I would suggest to bring your own hairdryer, as I haven't seen such an old and strange one never before. It looked more like a vacuum cleaner.
Staff were very nice and welcoming. Breakfast also good, with much choice of fruit, berries, etc. Overall a nice stay at Taormina, we would definitely come back.
