Nice Hotel

Posted Oct 6, 2013
Friendly staff - well run - a little bit outside town and from the beach but f=great views and good food. Lots of steps which is worth noting if you are unfit.

a view from afar

Posted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: the views of the town I thought it was in!
Cons: the location
Location: toooooo many steps to get to it!
not quite in Taormina and a little in need of some attention to bring this up to scratch.

High up the hill!

Very pleasant, quirky house but room was good and lovely views over the town and across to Etna. Lots of steps and a good steep walk into the town centre.

Generally nice hotel

Posted Aug 2, 2013
Pros: Nice room with balcony and great views
Generally nice hotel. Rooms were very clean. Most with their own terraces / balconies with excellent views of the bay and Mt Etna. Breakfast basic but nice. Hotel is situated at the top of the hill so it is a bit of a climb up and down to the town. Bar and restaurant quite expensive - would have been more likely to stay there in the evening for meal/drinks if more reasonably priced. Better value drinks and food in the town. Had requested a taxi to take us to the train station for 7am - this was booked by a member of staff the night before. Unfortunately the taxi did not arrive and we missed our train. This was most likely the fault of the taxi company but no-one was around in the hotel at that time to help us find another and we ended up walking with our bags down the hill to the station.

Stunning views

A Lovely stay which offers and easy 10 minute walk to central Taormina alternatively take a bus outside your door, or up to Castelmola. Morning breakfast offers lovely relaxed service with very friendly staff and the restaurant offers some traditional culinary delights. overall we had a fabulous stay in Taormina and highly recommend anyone to stay here.

not unless you are super fit

Posted Jul 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel owner ok but female reception staff very unfriendly and rather abrupt. This hotel has so many steps to get to reception and rooms ( around 50 from top entrance). plus to get to the hotel one has to walk uphill for about 1 KM some rather steep roads and steps. It is not for the elderly , young families or normal people. The rooms are very basic.The breakfast is basic and same. If you eat meat then you will be eating with the wasps who get to the sliced ham before you. The staff seem indifferent to this.All in all not one I would stay at again or recommend to any of my friends.

Absolutely great views

Posted Jun 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel overlooks mt Etna and the coast, very beautiful. Should also do dinner at the hotel dining area for a night coz it is so romantic to watch the sunset. Have the mussel pot, delicious! Only downside is u hv to climb up and down daily (abt 15min) to get to the main plaza and it is quite a distance to walk to the bus station even with the shortcut (I got lost!)

Great view and service

Nice hotel with a great view. Perfect for those who don't mind the walk into town which is 10 mins down some steps. The free breakfast in the morning is nice aswell.

hotel away from noise but not that far away

Posted Jul 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is quite good. What you would expect from a 2-star I guess (since we've never been to a 2-star I cannot compare with others). Breakfast is scarce as what they give you is what you have to eat. No choice, which was quite a disappointment.
