Simple Hotel, Perfect Location

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Lovely little hotel, has everything you need if you're looking for basic needs while being out & about most of the time, & we were fortunate enough to get a sea view room with a terrace, so had great views when we were in. Breakfast is usual continental (croissant, meat, cheese, cakes, cereal & yoghurt) wouldn't recommend having tea though - it's not great, though the coffee is very nice!! Location wise, the hotel is right in front of the steps leading down to the beach (most of which you'll need to pay for, though there is a small area at the end that's public), & right around the corner from the cable car leading up to the main part of town & bus station (turn left for the bus station, right for the town). Very glad we stayed down near the beach front rather than up in Taormina, as even in mid-september, it was very busy. Restaurants wise - there's an awful lot to choose from! Our picks for the week were L'Incontro, il Barcaiolo & Pizzeria Vecchia. The hotel does open straight out onto the road (there is a small pathway) but this is common, & you'll find most places that you're required to walk on the edge of the road. The staff were lovely & always had a smile. Overall, would definately recommend this hotel - it's very reasonably priced, & the location was spot on.

Great location, friendly & helpful staff, OK room

Posted Jun 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights and the location was absolutely perfect. Steps away from the beach and very close to the cable car. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. We were a little disappointed that our double bed was actually two twin beds pushed together. The shower was quite small with no tray to push soap/shampoo/etc on so we had to put everything on the shower floor. It was really hard to bend over and pick these things up because the shower was so narrow and it got a little frustrating after a few days. Also, I would advise bringing your own body soap because the one they provide is awful and does not lather at all. I can't tell you how many we went through just to get through a single wash. The breakfast was decent but got a little boring after 6 days. The staff that work the breakfast shift were very nice and made good, strong coffee for us every morning. It would have been perfect if they also provided fresh fruit - we are in Sicily, after all! I would recommend this hotel to friends but maybe not for a stay longer than 3-5 days.

Great view

Posted Oct 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a sea view room with a lovely spacious terrace. Room was clean and comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is the breakfast selection could be improved to include a wider variety of cereals fruit and yogurt and less cakes. Overall a pleasant stay.

Great hotel, challenging but beautiful area

Posted Sep 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was easy to find using our GPS but parking was challenging since the hotel entrance was on a busy thoroughfare on the side of a mountain. I paid to park for an hour in the tourist parking lot around the corner from the hotel so my wife and I could check in and unload our car. We then were able to relocate our car up the mountain a bit in overnight parking arranged through the hotel. Our room was compact but comfortable and the view from our large balcony was beautiful since it overlooked the coast. I chose this hotel due to a recommendation from Dive Sicily and dove (SCUBA) with them the following day. The hotel was very convenient for that. The hotel staff was courteous and breakfast was good. The hotel was very convenient to the tram which takes you to the tourist part of Taormina (away from the water) where there are many restaurants and lots of shopping.

Super location ... Excellent Hotel

Posted Sep 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel is in an excellent location. Right on the beach and next to the cable cars which take you to the city center. A perfect spot. Make sure you get a sea view room as the views are spectacular. Rooms are big and clean. Excellent breakfast. And staff is very helpful and friendly.
