To be honest, this place deserves rather 3,5 / 5 than the 3/5 I rated. It is simply a nice place, no more no less. It is centrally located between the old city of Taormina and the beach. It is a great location to explore the surroundings and beaches.
We were looking for something private, rather than a hotel. This apartment can be booked for even a few days, and you will have your private terrace to have your breakfast in the Sicilian sun. Bed is OK, bathroom is OK, you will have your own kitchen and for two persons the size of the apartment is spacious. Of course there are also disadvantages. The apartments are located between a busy road and a railroad. Not that we bothered that much - not many trains are running and the road was not extremely noisy. Our apartment was a bit humid. But for a price of around 60 Euro's we were fine with this accommodation.
Al in all, a nice stay for a good price which suited our demands.
