Loved this boutique hotel. Rooms are spotless and charming - no room numbers but named after flowers and fruit. Fast, free internet. Modern bathrooms, decent sized for Europe. Lovely terrace for breakfast (eggs and crepes made to order - again charmingly named dishes - you could have a 'lady trevelyan' (crepes with home-made marmalade) or a greta garbo! The terrace also served as a late night bar on an honor system. We were there every night as a family, taking in the stunning views and just chatting as if in our own terrace living room - our only surprise was that no one else was doing this!
The location is perfect. With one family member pregnant and another not in the best of health, we were a bit worried about the fact that cars couldn't drive up to the hotel, as Corso Umberto is pedestrian only. But the hotel is literally 100 meters from the main parking at Porta Catania, and there is even a gentle ramp from the 7th floor of the parking lot to wheel bags up to Corso Umberto and to the hotel. The staff had also offered to come help us get our bags if we called on arrival, but we did not need to.
The best part of all was being right on Corso Umberto with the shopping, the restaurants and the sights all right there - even the funicular down to the beaches is just at the other end of Corso Umberto - a pleasant 10 minute walk away. Marcin and others at the front desk were super helpful with suggestions - Marcin pointed us to the perfect dinner restaurant after a late night arrival - Nero d'Avola - literally a 2-minute walk away.
Only negative - perhaps the hotel should replace its painfully slow and two sides open elevator where you have to keep the button pushed the whole way.
Other than that, can't think of a better place to be in Taormina!
