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!) for that trip down to the beach. The view from our room down the coast was spectacular and the room itself was spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast is served in an alcove off the beautiful downstairs garden- again the best views ever- and the man who looks after breakfast makes a terrific espresso. This hotel is a real gem- do yourself a favor and make a booking for your next trip to Sicily. The only downside? We knew it in advance- but this lovely old hotel has no lift. The price you pay for the fabulous views from the top levels is to trek up several flights of stairs. The staff do offer to bring your bags up later however- which might be worth taking advantage of if your bags are humongous! In retrospect though, even taking the stairs into account- still very much worth it and we would go back again in an instant!

Pros-Amazing location, well cleaned bathroom and rooms, good breakfast, comfortable and tranquil garden to lounge, reception workers are very friendly and helpful
Cons- rooms are a bit tattered, the biggest miss is that there isn't any mini refrigirator in the room

Ps- the man responsible from the breakfast, Matteo,he is an amazing guy

Room tip: 3rf floor rooms have the best view

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. That almost made the magnificent views and breakfast from the lovely courtyard area even nicer. We spent ages just relaxing there with the resident cat and the palm trees: free bottle of wine a nice touch, bellisima!

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 guides. Hotel Svizzera makes the best of your stay. The building is beautiful, rich breakfast is served on a terrace with the best view. The people running the hotel are the loveliest people. I am looking forward to my next visit to Taormina and Hotel Svizzera.

Room tip: Rooms are clean with AC.
