Cozy hotel with great staff and lovely food

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Location: Visit Taormina (great restaurants and shops and nice outdoor areas to walk around) It's a quick ride by bus from hotel.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. The breakfasts are phenomenal. We had a view of the ocean and a nice room.

Relaxation on a Budget. Basic,clean & friendly.

Posted May 23, 2014
Pros: Friendly Staff, Cleanliness, Location and ease of travel from airport and Taormina
Cons: Only the decor but this could mean an increase in price to cover cost so suggest leave it and offer a value for money budget hotel which this is.
Location: Bus stop from Airport right outside hotel. Beach directly opposite. Lots of restaurants in easy walking distance. Short bus ride from Taormina.
Whilst the decor is very dated and possibly not to everyone's taste I would still recommend this hotel to people who are happy with basic facilities. The hotel was spotlessly clean, right next to a beach and very close to lots of restaurants. The staff were really helpful and friendly. We had a sea view room and I would recommend this. Whilst there was not a full English breakfast on offer there was an extensive buffet breakfast with the option of fried or scrambled egg too. I did enquire if there was any toast but was quite happy to forego this when it was obvious the waitress did not understand me. However, she obviously found out what I meant and went to the trouble to prepare some for me although I had been quite happy to accept that this was not available. That certainly is service! Also the freshly squeezed orange juice was really delicious. In warm weather breakfasts are served on a roof top terrace with sea views. There is the option to order, at breakfast time, an evening dinner too if you prefer to eat in the hotel.

Airport business hotel

Posted Apr 11, 2014
Not located in a nice area, but near airport. Had a very nice breakfast, with a larger variety of items. The coffee was from a machine, not an expectation while in Italy. There is very limited free parking, otherwise there is a parking ramp that charges 5 euro. Beds were hard, in typical European hotels.

Orange Alert.

Posted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff, central location, tiny lift, great views of the Mediterranean( or is it the Ionian Sea?)
Cons: Internet speed, parking, decor not to everyone's taste.
Location: Middle of town, you can eat or swim or go out in a boat or drink and there are two nice churches very handy if you fancy prayer and meditation.
Stayed at Hotel Palladio for 3 days. It has a good location, right in the middle of Giardini Naxos overlooking the beach on one side and the main street on the other.Close to Taormina but if you go there be prepared for overpriced chaos,crammed with coaches and greying tourist couples arguing with each other. If you must go don't take your car, you'll regret it!!! Very pleasant staff in hotel Palladio, very helpful. The room was large and well furnished,with a balcony overlooking the street. A kettle was provided. The room decor was a bit too orange for my tastes but somebody will like it I suppose. I only managed to get up early enough for breakast once, but it was fine, hardboiled eggs aplenty, gallons of coffee to wash them down, and all the other continental stuff. My only problems with hotel Palladio was the pitifully slow internet , as bad as dial up, and the fact that, although I booked because it said it has parking, it really only has a couple of spaces on the street. They are always occupied so you end up driving round in circles for half an hour looking for an empty space. You end up walking half a mile to the hotel. The hotel has a lift but I should warn that it 's tiny , 3 people max it said. It works OK though and I am sure it's fun if you are on "intimate" terms with your fellow ascendees.

Pasta con Sarde

Posted Mar 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was a keeper. Older, small elevator but the nicest staff in all of Italy, including Sicily. Only 4 parking spaces, but I nailed one. The ocean view was beautiful, the older beds were super comfortable, and everything is near. Have been to Sicily 5 times now, and by far the best restaurant in the Taormina area was down the street. Would I come back? If I wasn't an old Sicilian American, and near the final chapter....definately!

Nice place, but the bathroom smells funny

Posted Feb 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Friendly staff, nice spot by the ocean (but overlooking a gas station). Only drawback was the bathroom had a funny smell, almost like propane or a slight sewage smell.

Fabulous Hotell

Posted Jan 16, 2013
It was really a lovely hotel, and the staff ever so nice. Because it was winter time they upgraded our room, the breakfast was lovely. We have wonderful views from our hotel room. I really could not fault this hotel, it was amazing

Beautiful room on the ocean

Posted Jan 4, 2013
Pros: Room and breakfast
I had requested a family room for four. Our room was upgraded to a two bedroom suite on the ocean and piazza. It had a beautiful sunny room that you could hear the ocean waves at night. The other window was on a small piazza with a church. It was Christmas week and I awoke to Italian bagpipe music coming from a man outside the church welcoming churchgoers to mass! In the afternoon the room was sunny and warm. The other room was on the piazza. Both rooms very generous sized. It was a fabulous room and breakfast was overlooking the ocean. Wonderful breakfast. Some very tasty items not normally served.

Lovely gem in the off season, close to Taormina

Posted Dec 30, 2012
Pros: Super friendly staff
Location: Close to Taormina and many nice walks and historical sites
Had a great time here! We came in the off season, but still most places were open. The hotel is very nice inside, we had a sky view room without a balcony, but it had a great skylight that opened. The people at the front desk were very nice, and the breakfast ladies were as well. They are very helpful with ideas on places to go and things to see, the archeological site in Naxos was a great stroll on a nice day. Bathroom was the best we had seen yet in Italy, everything very clean and cheery. There is a public bus to Taormina, but we had trouble with it never being even close to on time.

First rate experience

Posted Oct 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
For Americans with practically no Italian, this is a great place to stay. The english speaking staff is superior in every way. The family owned & run business has a dedication to fresh, local & organic. The breakfast was a thing of beauty. We opted for dinner one night - it was fresh from the sea, beautifully prepared, tasty and served on the veranda overlooking the sea. Their excellent Sicilian white wine doesn't hurt a bit. On check out, the desk staff helped us make sure our gps was giving good directions to our next stop.
