“Clean hotel”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The hotel is very clean, the size of the room very good. We arrived at 9 PM, after battling traffic on the eve of Ferragosto. Unfortunately there was no one available at the reception desk to check us in for more than an hour. We found the room comfortable and clean. Parking was very difficult. No lot nor valet service. The bathroom was very basic. The sink's soap dish and cup holder were on the shelf, unmounted. The AC was adequate, although when we turned it on, and stepped out to get a bite to eat, we returned to find it and a bedside light had been turned off. A bit eerie. Again, the room was clean and basically serviceable.

Room Tip: Recommend you arrive before 6 PM. Bring your own towels.

My friend and I were in this hotel for 10 days. Touristic agency booked this hotel for us. I was pleasantly surprised the moment I've entered the room. The room was huge. This was the room with two single beds and there was lot of space. This is not a general rule for Italy. We've had a big balcony with a sight to Taormina. The room is cleaned every single day, but if you want clean towels every day, you'll have to ask.
People working in the hotel are very nice. They will try to talk to you, even though they speak English poorly or don't speak it at all. They were interested to give us useful peace of information whenever we told them what we plan to visit.
Position of the hotel in the city is very, very good. Beach is near by, you don't have to walk long. Supermarkets (two of those) are near by. Bus stop to Taromina, Catania,... is also near by.
Few things this hotel is lacking to be perfect:
there is no refrigerator in the room
breakfast is poor (for the people that are not from Italy)
One general information, you should be aware off is city-tax you'll have to pay on your leave.

Hotel is in the nice place, the owners are very nice, they keep it clean. The aircondition works fine, but after 2p.m. my main disapointment was poor breakfast, every day same jam, bagle, one butter and coffe with milk. If you ask for tea and coffe, you dont get milk. In other hotel, with the same price oure friends had egs, salami, cheese, juices and lot more. They even didn't gave us a pitcher of water on the table.
