Italienischer Palazzo

Elegant atmospheric hotel

Posted May 30, 2016 on Hotels
Difficult narrow access into town so easier to not use car during stay. Hotel very atmospheric w I th lovely lounges. Breakfast somewhat chaotic & always running out of everything, not f o r l ack of staff numbers but bad training &/or planning. Staff park your car for you & bring it back to h o tel door when required for EUR 15 per day.

First off, the television was not working, and then the air conditioner was not working. They lied and told us it had to be regulated, then we find out that they turn off the air conditioner for the whole hotel during the hours of 1 through 5. But our room was still hot, hot, hot. Could not open the windows because of the mosquitos, so we got a fan. It was miserable and I would not stay there again. A lot of people were complaining about the same issue, so it was not just our room. So sad, for such a beautiful setting.

En nästan 100% vistelse

Posted May 22, 2016 on Hotels
Hade en jättetrevlig familjevecka med mycket hjälpsam och barnvänlig personal. Själva Taormina var en trevlig bekantskap för oss alla. Man får dock räkna med att ett antal trappsteg ska tas för att komma runt i denna stad. Den enda plumpen var när vi checkade ut och vår förbeställda transfer till flygplatsen inte dök upp som avtalat. Då var den morgonens personal inte direkt hjälpsam på ett professionellt sätt. Det hände ingenting förrän vi hotade med att hotellet skulle få stå för våra kostnader om vi skulle missa vårt flyg hem. Men då dök hotellmanagern upp och då började det hända saker. Hon sprang runt som en tätting och ordnade till slut fram en stor taxi åt oss. All heder åt henne. Vi hann precis med flighten hem efter en transport i racerfart från hotellet till flygplatsen i Catania.

Fairytale hotel.

Posted Apr 20, 2016 on Hotels
What a place! Fantastic location, beautifull scenery and very close to the centre. Rooms are small but nice, good beds and okay breakfast. View from the rooms is amazing. Beautifull pool (unfortunately it was closed, because of maintenance -> italian style). Bring mosquito spray with you, otherwise you will not get much sleep.

Excelsior hotel-good value/wellsited

Posted Apr 15, 2016 on Hotels
A friend and I stayed 3 nights in early April 2016. Had to change rooms to get 2 beds rather than double room-not a real problem as hotel not full. Nice little balcony overlooking the town and some sea view. Very lovely gardens with openair pool but not used as we were there a little early for outdoor swimming. No tea/coffee making facility which was my only disapointment. Near to shops and a variety of restaurants. Good breakfast/great choice. Did not eat in the restaurant in the evening although the menu was varied and not expensive compared to local restaurants in the town. Helpful and friendly staff.

Cons: Sound insulation I between rooms.
Parking is only available in the nearby town garage. 5 min walk .

Pros: 朝食とラウンジからのエトナ山と海岸の景色が素晴らしいので海側の高い部屋でなくても十分楽しめます。 シーズオフでしたが夕飯前のラウンジでピアノの生演奏があり一人でもゆっくりできました、値段も街中と変わらないです。
Cons: もしタオルミーナのリムジンバス亭からの送迎があるなら値段を明記してほしい。
お部屋もロビーもラウンジも素敵でした。 スタッフも年配の方と陽気な若者がちょうど良いバランスで3泊しました。

bellissimo hotel a strapiombo sul mare

Posted Jan 7, 2016
Pros: praticamente tutto: dalle camere elegantemente arredate, il servizio ,le colazioni che offrivano di tutto e buonissimo, la gentilezza del personale
Cons: direi l'aspetto esteriore: purtroppo si tratta di un hotel dei primi del '900 e quindi avrebbe bisogno di una radicale ristrutturazione.
Location: tutto ottimo, non è possibile desiderare di più.
Expedia ci ha suggerito questo hotel in sostituzione di un albergo prenotato precedentemente a Giardini Naxos, che poi ha dichiarato di essere chiuso. l'alternativa è stata eccellente sia per la posizione sul mare, in pieno centro storico. Aspetto elegante: che chiedere di più
