La Pensione Svizzera

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: Convenient location, common areas very attractive, breakfast, everything really.
Cons: The middle room with a seaview on each floor is the smallest. Our was 6, 10 on the next floor. 7 was the largest room with a huge terrace.
Location: Near the town, 5 minutes walk. Near the bus station, could easily take bus to airport and places of interest nearby. Near the cable car.
Small hotel near the cable car, so easy to get down to the beach area and Isla Bella. Staff spoke excellent English and other languages. They were very helpful, recommending places to visit and restaurants. Hotel was small and very stylish. A pretty patio area and breakfast room. There was a bar and also tea was served in the afternoon! It was on several levels with no lift. I personally would not take children there but I am sure they would be welcomed. The hotel had an arrangement with a beach club and you could spend the day there, 8 euros for beach, towel and transfer, if that is what you like doing.

Good Hotel close to amenities

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: The setting was nice.With a lovely garden/patio area to enjoy.Served free tea and cakes in the early evening.
Cons: Wi-fi was a little slow and some TV channels broke up.
Location: With only a few minutes walk into the centre, it is in a great location.Situated between the cable car and bus station,you can't ask for more.
We had a great time at La Pensione Svizzera.The rooms were of an adequate size and had a good view of the sea.All the hotel was very clean and all the staff were very friendly.

Character Hotel in Taormina

Posted Nov 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Chartacter hotel in Taormina, we were travelling as a family of four and were really impressed. Its full of character, in a great location (great Trattoria just up the road) great views of the sea, good breakfast and friendly staff. Only issue we had and this is a small one to be honest - the room was too small for the four of us with cases etc, not a room we could all relax in with ease.

Phenomenal location and service!

Posted Aug 15, 2012
Pros: Room Location Breakfast
Cons: Wish we had a higher floor, but the hotel was booked.
Location: Location is right next to the finovia for access to the beach. Very short walk to the main road in Taormina.
The hotel was great! Location while off the main strip is perfect if you prefer peace at night. It's also steps away from the finovia to get to the beach. I would definitely consider this hotel on my next visit to Taormina. Staff was kind, informative and attentive. Breakfast in the garden was pleasant.

A Lovely B&B in Taormina

Posted Apr 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
La Pensione Svizzera is a beautiful B&B in a great location in Taomina. Very clean, well-appointed rooms, plus a marvelous breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was quiet, but our daughters' room (which was right above ours) was very noisy, primarily due to late check-ins and early departures of guests in rooms close to theirs.

Excellent sea view room

Posted Sep 1, 2011
Enjoyed this excellent hotel. They are very courteous when I asked for the change of my credit card information for guarantee of our stay at the last moment. One comment is that it would be much better if they let us know in advance the hotel's parking location with some maps or directions, which is about 100 meters away. It was a bit awkard for me to park the car on the street, go down to the receptionist for a guidance on how to access those (valet) parking areas. Everyone who arrives the hotel by car seemed to have a similar problems.

The hotel is in a great location close to the main street and also the bus station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was served in nice surroundings with a good selection to choose from. A couple of downsides to the hotel are: no lift but then again we only had to drag the bags up on our arival and back down on our ay of departure. The neighbours right next door had 2 dogs who barked every single morning from an early hour which was very annoying and lastly the lovely marble staires unfortunately echo every footstep of every guest who pounded up and down them from an early hour. But we did have a lovely stay and will return.

La Pensione Svizzera - A Brilliant Option

Posted Mar 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
This Pensione was a great option for the price. It was very clean & well organised. The hotel staff were very helpful and the breakfast was extensive, very good and had views over the water. It is located close to the bus station so is a perfect option for those travelling by public transport.
