“great sea view”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Beautiful location by the sea. Few minutes to walk to the entrance to the beach and ten minutes to the funicular that goes to the city. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good.
Be sure to book a place in the garage because on the road does not have enough parking spaces.

Beautiful views from the balconies facing the street. Room was ok I wasn't impressed much but had a good night sleep and enjoyed the breakfast. LOVED going up to the town checking out the churches and all the shops there. We were there around Xmas and you can just feel festivities in the air... Awesome time and place.

Great location by the beach with beautiful views. Our room was not facing the street but on the side. From the balcony we saw the beach and heard less traffic. We had a twin room and other than the bathroom being small we enjoyed our stay. The tram to town is right up the road along with small stores, markets, and restaurants along the road. Breakfast was the same as many Italian hotels and we didn't experience a lack of food available. I would stay there again anytime.

Good location near the beachfront , just 25 minutes walk up to Taormina ( steep) and 100 meters to beach . A good base for exploring the region. Do not mind the first expression when you arrive outside the hotel, it could be much better than you think , it is all about which room you get . A wide scale of rooms, from room with big balconies to backrooms with nothing. A nice swimmingpool with a good view over the sea. Ok breakfast. Nice seafood restaurant next door .

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms against the back,or at least try to see them before you decide. Rooms on th...

we stayed here after wanting a cheap getaway, and though the room is basic, we did pay extra for a sea view, and you do get one, and its amazing.

we had a small balcony which was fine, but what makes this hotel amazing is the pool and view out back.


the restaurant next door run by santino and wife tops it all off with a varied menu that's the best.

the staff were friendly and I will be back soon

Overall, really nice stay! The breakfast was an interesting array, great cappuccino!
Decor in rooms could use a revamp, it's very old and kindof drab. Internet was decent - that was a plus.
Very close to the beautiful little beach below and the funivia that takes you up to Taormina. It's open very late. Super convenient.
Gorgeous view from our balcony.
