Also an easy 3 minutes walk from the duomo and restaurants we were glad we stayed here. The breakfast was very tasty and fresh! And you...

Dear Madam, we didn't try to charge you €30 extra for double bed, we explained only that you booked an Economy room with a French Bed. All fornitures are wrote in our web site, anyway we had availability so we gave you a classic double room with sea view without extra payment. Our breakfast is always full of fresh products...

A fine hotel in a top location with great views. But this hotel is not 4 stars by Australian standards. We booked a suite which fell short of the 650+ Sq feet advertised. Small bath room. Average bed room. And the sitting room became our dressing room. Staff were excellent. Most obliging. Attention to detail is lacking. Little things. Such...

This place is a timeless beauty. Located 30 seconds away from the main street, it has an amazing view of the bay. Our room was spacious and bright, but we spent some time on the balcony and by the pool.

We spent a lovely weekend in this place! English style hotel with one of the best view in Taormina. It's just stunning and staff has been so welcoming and always available for us. Miss Claudia is the manager there and she is impeccable! Highly recommend !

This hotel is overpriced and doesn't deliver what it says in it's the advertising. There was no hot water on the first day. The hot water tap had to be left on for 30 minutes before you could shower that was only available in the mornings. We were looking forward to using the swimming pool but told we could not...
