The problem with this hotel (and a lot of other hotels in Taormina) is that it is located on the side of a mountain with very narrow streets that make it nearly impossible to drive to them and drop your luggage. Also, when I asked about parking, i was not given an accurate answer. The fact is that you have...

Out of the 14 hotels we stayed in on our European holiday this was the second most expensive so I had high expectations. I paid extra for an ocean view room which I wouldnt bother spending the money on again. The room was on the 4th floor with a view over the rooftops of the ocean. It was pretty much...

The location of il piccolo giardino is the best, approx 20 or so steps down onto Corso umberto which is the main street, it's pedestrianised and ideal for the numerous restaurants and bars. The hotel itself was clean and very comfortable. The bedroom was adequate size and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was clean except for the shower floor it either...

We stayed at the Il Piccolo Giardino hotel for 3 nights. The best parts of the hotel are the common areas including the rooftop pool, the restaurant and the reception area. We stayed in a double room on the second floor which was very comfortable and clean. It did not live up to the standard of the rest of the...

We had a very comfortable room with a balcony and a superb view across the town towards the sea. The location is fantastic, the service good, and despite the small size of the pool, it was great to cool off in. Our meals at their restaurant - Ristorante Nettuno - were the best we had in 3 weeks of travelling...

Great location to explore the old town and right behind main shopping street. The hotel doesn't have any parking spaces and guests arriving by car need to park in the multi-storey car park which is 10mins walk away - this obviously not ideal if you're arriving with big luggage. We stayed in the annex building which had a large room...

We stayed at the Il Piccolo for one night and we wish it was longer. The room was small but clean, nice bathroom. The pool is great, the location perfect.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. Very disappointed. The location was great, the rooftop pool was Devine and the room was clean but they were the only positives. First of all we were not notified that you cannot park at this hotel and have to park at a nearby parking station and catch a shuttle into town. We...
