Our 5 nights stay at the villa's top (3rd) floor superior room was a success. The villa's location (8 min. walk from the old city center, across the main bus terminal and close to the cable car station), Mauro (the manager) friendliness and good advises (per walks, trips, attractions and restaurants), the peaceful clean room with balcony view to Taormina...

Francesca and Mauro were great with communicating with me about our upcoming trip. Check-in time ends at 8:30p, but Mauro was willing to meet whenever we arrived that night. Unfortunately, we were unable to make our trip out there, but next time we are in Taormina, they will be first on our list.

As we used the train to get from Catania to Taormina, we found the bus outside the station took us right up to this hotel (Bus terminus over the road). The room we had was lovely with great views over the Mediterranean Sea/Messina Straits from our 'Juliet Balcony'. The room was very good and was serviced very well each day....

There are many things I like about this hotel! It was located right across the street from the Interbus/Edna bus terminal and about 7 minutes from the center of town. It is ideal for people arriving from the Catania airport. The hotel is in a hundred year old building and it is clean and nicely maintained. Get a room with...

Took a room on the top floor with sea views, balcony and double aspect. A short walk into the town meant the hotel was nice and quiet. Great views up the coast towards the straits with the toe of Italy clearly visible. The owners were really helpful, recommending a local restaurant (L'incontro) and looking after our every need. Being able...

I've been visiting Taormina for almost 40 years and have stayed in over 15 different hotels in that time. Having stayed twice this year in Villa Astoria I can say without doubt that this is by far my favourite over the years. The rooms are spotlessly clean the views from the rear are second to none and the breakfast is...
