“A lovely hotel in a delightful town”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed at the Hotel Florio for 2 nights. We had a large, quiet, beautifully furnished room with a terrace overlooking the old town.

We ate at La Dispensa d’Etna which is round the corner, an excellent family run restaurant specialisng in local produce, cooked by “mamma” in the kitchen.

The Hotel Florio and La Dispensa d’Etna were two of the nicest places we found in Sicily.

We originally intended to stay for only one night and head on to Taormina the next day. However, we enjoyed the hotel, restaurant and Castiglione so much that we stayed for a second night, making a late afternoon excursion to Taormina, once most of the tour buses had gone. Given the crowds in Taormina, we were very happy with the decision.

Room Tip: We had a choice of a room with a view of Etna or a room overlooking the old town. Both rooms and vi...

We stayed at this hotel and our room was directly in front of Mt Etna. It was a lovely spacious room and very clean. Our bathroom was quite nice though the shower needed a little fixing.
There are renovations going on in this hotel at present in other rooms and when finished will be absolutely gorgeous.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful and breakfast on the roof top was breathtaking with the bells ringing out and the view of the Castello. Breakfast was great and the waiter was such a nice man and would tell us about nearby markets and what to see.
This hotel really has a charm about it and is at the top if this beautiful little village and really worthwhile visiting. Truly a beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a first class view of Mt Etna is worth every cent. If driving make sure you have a small...

We stayed at the Florio Hotel in early February when the weather was dreadful, but our stay was made delightful by the Hotel staff who did everything to compensate us, from information about places to see (despite the weather) to eat, and so forth. One of our group forgot a piece of garment at the Hotel and the staff not only located the piece but forwarded it to our next stop.

Our party (six people from different countries) all agreed we would go back.

Room Tip: Look for the ones with a view to the Etna
