Stayed in a seaview room, which was very nice and clean, and a decent size. Beautiful views of the coast are offered from the room, as well as the pool area and terrace. The best part of the hotel is the staff. All of the employees (front desk, housekeeping, bartenders, and servers) are helpful and incredibly nice. The pool area is nice, though it is a bit small, and has a great little bar, so it's good to sit out at, even at night. Breakfast is nothing special, but it's good for a quick bite and a coffee. The location is perfect, just a five minute walk from the center of town, and just a bit further to the train station. Can't wait to return!

The Hotel offers a great view if you book one of the superior rooms overlooking the sea & mountain vista's. The staff were very helpful the lady on reception helped us sort out problems with the rental car. Breakfast was very good and our room clean with a very nice terrace with 2 sunbeds & a table & 2 chairs. There was a good sized pool & separate communal terrace with ample seating & sunbeds.It is a bit of a steep hill getting to the hotel but it's worth it. Also very close to bars restaurants & shops..we would stay again

We stayed three nights and four days. Centrally located helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance or it's a matter of hoping on to a "hop on and off bus". A good breakfast was served. A pool is there though we did not have much time to relax there as we were busy with the excursion. Pleasant stay clean linen and request for a room with the sea view. Overall a decent stay. The pictures attached are a scenic view from the room. Enjoyed the company enjoyed the stay.....

We were a family of four looking for a suitable place to stay in Taormina which was suitably located but not too expensive. This hotel fitted the bill exactly. It is literally only five minutes walk away from a great variety of restaurants and shops - and probably 10 minutes from the bus station from where you can get wherever you want to in Sicily. We were lucky enough to be given rooms with a sea view which were comfortable. The receptionists range from the extremely helpful to the pretty eccentric - the lady receptionist, however, is definitely worth speaking to. She is extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were standard for the region - but there was an ample variety of food and, once again, the ladies were very polite, friendly and helpful. There is a very nice pool to cool down in - but my only real concern about this hotel, if you are thinking of stopping some time at the hotel (we were there for two weeks) is the loud repetitive music which is blasted out there morning, noon and night. It would have helped if they had changed the record occasionally - or simply turned it off! After a while it became a little nauseating.

Taormina itself is a very beautiful place - we went to a different restaurant most nights and didn't have a single bad experience. We would also recommend buying two day tickets for the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tours - and get to the top of Mount Etna by cable car and jeep.

Room Tip: Ask for sea views
