We stayed in this hotel in October 2012, and yes, whilst the hotel was lovely we stayed in the apartments and shabby is the best description. The apartment had a very run down feel to it and the view was obstructed by the building site opposite and the numerous cables and wires hanging across the road. We were also regularly interrupted by the owner asking us to turn off the outside light - I found this particularly annoying as one time it was whilst I was eating breakfast on the balcony! The position of this apartment right in front of the road is not ideal and certainly not in a garden. The reception staff were variable, onhe girl was absolutely lovely and very helpful, one not so much and a third was too busy looking after her screaming baby to pay any attention to the queue of guests and was very rude to me as I asked more than one question when she was busy, a second guest got similar treatment. The location is quiet, apart from barking dogs, but the hill is very steep and not recommended for those who can't manage hills. On reflection I would not choose to stay here again I would opt for a hotel with private sunbathing and / or pool. Taormina is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit.
