What a delight this privately run hotel is. Only 10 rooms but each room is individually decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The attention from the staff and owners is first class. We enjoyed wondeful breakfasts looking out onto Mount Etna.
The hotel is tucked away just off the main street and upon entering you find it adorned with antiques and fine furniture. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and their local knowledge is superb.
We stayed for a week as our niece was getting married in a villa about 30 mins taxi ride away. We wanted to stay in Taormina as it really comes to life at night and is a wonderful place to walk around.
If you appreciate the finer things in life stay here.
One tip make sure you agree a price with the taxi drivers before you start your journey and always barter.
As for transfers from the airport to Taormina, because it is quite a distance from Catania airport we shopped around for transfers prior to our trip and chose Click Airport Transfer who I would highly recommend and you can book online at www.clickairporttransfer.com
Their service was 1st class and very reasonable compared to other companies.
