“An excellent hotel”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This hotel belies its 3* status. Every aspect is very good indeed, from room to garden to pool. we enjoyed our stay, with very helpful and welcoming staff, fantastic view from the room, and everything as it should be. Special commendation to the concierge who parked the hire car while I watched in admiration! We'd certainly stay here again and recommend it unreservedly.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are best - worth the slight extra.

We returned to this beautiful hotel a third time because we were charmed by its quiet elegance and friendly ambience.
Its lovely garden is filled with the perfume of the Mediterranean and its pool is set overlooking the Ionian Sea where lunch is served daily.
The breakfast is delicious and exceeds the standard of most hotels where we have stayed previously in Taormina. It is close to Corso Umberto and to many excellent restaurants which the staff are only too happy to recommend.
Our accommodation was spacious and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: The higher priced rooms were extremely good value

This is a fantastic hotel in Taormina. Very friendly and helpful staff, we arrived in Taormina with no plans and were recommended great locations and restaurants to visit within and around Taormina. Our room with a sea view was perfect, very clean and comfortable. Plenty of good food at the buffet breakfasts. We highly recommend this hotel.

Our stay at the Villa Belvedere Hotel was a great experience. On our arrival, we were warmly welcomed, finding the accommodation very comfortable for our seven day break. Our room had a beautiful view of the coastline, and of the terraces below. Each concierge was very knowledgable and was able to recommend local restaurants and trattoria and their speciality dishes. These proved to be excellent choices. On leaving the hotel on foot, a left turn revealed a delightful public park, which provides a very pleasant route toward the centre of Taormina. The hotel readily supplied timetable information for the local buses, trains, and the day tour to Mount Etna.

Room Tip: A south facing room will have a sea view.

We arrived in Taomina and did not have a room. We came across the Villa Belvedere. We had a room with a balcony and it was perfect! The room was comfy and large. Breakfast was good and offered eggs.. We had a small problem with wifi in the room, but that was taken care of quickly. The hotel staff was very accomodating. I really enjoyed my stay.

Arrived on a rainy afternoon at reception and was kindly given a quick map and useful spots to eat or visit while our cases where taken to the apartments about 50m along the road. The main hotel was closed for the off peak season but Maria who checked us in was very friendly and professional and showed us to our apartment and the basics of how to get in and where the light switches where. Upon entering the apartment we was greeted with a fabulous clean apartment flat just as it is on the hotel website. Modern clean and quiet and a fantastic view of the coast and mount etna in the morning. We requested breakfast for the first morning and that arrived promptly on time, fresh croissants and bread as well as a pot of coffee & the local fresh orange juice.

As it was off season a fair few places were closed, however Maria and the hotel staff where happy to check for us and also offer alternatives. The apartment was cleaned every morning and made for a very enjoyable stay at Taromina.

Checking out was easy with the manager and again offered to call us a taxi or we was free to explore parts of the main hotel which was under renovation. If they are brought up to the apartment flat standards then this is the hotel to stay at on a return trip!

Thank you Hotel Villa Belvedere

This was my first time in Taormina and I am so glad I was in the Palazzina of of Villa Belvedere. After a warm welcome from the staff I arrived in my room ... wow ... what a view and what a nice decor. From my room I could see the Etna and the sea in one look! The front desk staff were nice to point me in the right direction for some local visits.

I have visited many hotels in many countries, Villa Belvedere is in the top five for me

Room Tip: Ask for the Palazzina !!!!
