This hotel had the best views of all the places we stayed in Italy plus it had an amazing private terrace off our bedroom! The hotel was in a very good location to all the attractions and nightlife of Taormina. I think Taormina is the prettiest town in Sicily and had some really interesting basilicas and archaeological sites. We had...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

If you’re going to Sicily – this is the place to stay! Taromina is beautiful and the Hotel Villa Schuler is superb, in a great location with incredible history and family history. We stayed in the Garden Villa for seven (7) nights – which is a garden within a garden. This was very special. The garden itself is very unique...

Hotel staff was up to speed. Location of hotel is walking distance from Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina. It has a garage which is a great asset for this town. Great view onto the Etna Volcano from the roofterrace.

Superb views of Etna and the coast from our room, which was large and comfortable. Good breakfast served to the table by friendly staff. Easy walk up through a stepped garden to the main street ( Taormina is a hill-top town so if you can't do steps it's not so good). The valet parking is done well by helpful people...

We stayed here in March - a lovely time to stay. The hotel is perched in Taormina overlooking the sea on one side and mount Etna on another. Book a room with balcony and sea view. The rooms are large ( superior double) ., perhaps a little old fashioned - but nice for that. There is a garden at the...

Schuler is in the center of Taormina. It has a garden which connects to the main road. A Highlight is the excellent breakfast: great choice, location outside and most of all lovely service from Rosita.

We stayed here for 4 nights while in Taormina recently. The location is great - steps from Corso Umberto. They had a giant terrace overlooking the Mediterranean on one side and Mt.

Dear guest from Edmonton, Canada, Thank you for your positive feedback. We are happy to read that we were able to meet your expectations. And YES. Our frequently praised breakfast served a la carte is special and unique, but then you mentioned another important aspect: FLEXIBLE BREAKFAST TIMES. While many hotels have fixed start-and-stop breakfast times we think that flexibility...

We had a lovely relaxed stay at this wonderful centrally located hotel. The views from our Suite's terrace and the hotel terrace were magnificent. All the hotel staff were friendly and very helpful before and during our visit in arranging car transfers for us and providing advice etc. We would definitely return next time we are in Sicily.
