When you are on a budget trip, the conditions offered by Villa Bianca are sufficient, but it have nothing to enchant you. The fact that the hotel was full, confirm that the main criteria to choose this hotel is the best value for money.
The room was enough spacoius, but there was some annoying details, like the shower, which was pretty difficult to fix at the right temperature, or some broken tiles in the room and bathroom, the TV set with few programms (we didn`t used it), the bath which needs a general refurbishment.
The location is perfect to reach all you need in a max. 5 minutes walk, (Mazzaro Beach, Beach Isola Bella, the funicular to get you up in the town, small markets and bars).
As a tip, take only breakfast (which is relativ poor and repetitive), you have lots of good restaurants up in Taormina. And when you have a problem with the noise, choose the upper building or the side wing, it`s a lot of trafic in front of the hotel.
When you rent a car its perfect to get around, but difficult to park (the hotel parking lot on top of the hill is crowded and not always available), so you must park the car in the public parking at the side of the hotel where you are charged untill midnight.
We liked also the private beach where you get by shuttle bus and it `s not so crowded like Mazzaro and a little bit cheaper (16 Euros instead of 20 for 2 sunbeds and umbrella), but it is over 1 km away so you can`t get back to the hotel when you want, (you depend on the timetable of tehe shuttle bus).
in conclusion, when you don`t come with big expectations it`s a perfect located place with normal/average conditions.
