Holidaying in Sicily near Noto and decided to make an overnight trip to Taormina. The hotel was perfect for us. Clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was immaculate and bed very comfortable. Room had a small balcony with a view of coastline. All the way to Italian mainland. Excellent helpful staff who arranged a local Restaurant. Great breakfast. Location ideal for exploring near the centre of town. Would definitely recommend and return.

We last stayed here 10 years ago and were pleased to see that nothing had really changed, apart from the much welcomed addition of a lift. Great views from our room and the breakfast terrace of the bay, the coast and Calabria in the distance. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were good but as the hotel was full for most of the time we were there some things did run out so on some days the choice was limited. Our room was a little on the small side and the bathroom could have done with a little renovation but everywhere is spotlessly clean. A perfect location for the town, buses and cable car to Mazarro beach. The hotel cat is also an added bonus.

Room tip: There are 3 rooms on each floor overlooking the sea. The ones on each corner are slightly larger than the middle one.

Stayed here for nearly 2 weeks recently.

The view was amazing, but the room was on the small side. The bathroom could do with some updating (the shower cubicle was tiny!)

Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was OK, but certain things were not replaced if they ran out. Which limited choice.

Great location for all the sites/restaurants/bars in the town. Handy for the local buses and the cable car to the beach.

Room tip: Second floor, sea view rooms have small balcony's...

Very centrally located Hotel, just 2 minutes away from the bus terminus and 5 mins from Porta Messina. At the reception, Fabio and Giusy were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was abundant with a good selection of sweet and savoury options. Will certainly recommend and will surely return.
Only one con. Reception is below street level and not accessible by lift, making it inaccessible to peaple with special needs.
