Central hotel with great viewsPosted Aug 31, 2015
Pros: Parking, views, location
Cons: Wi-fi soidn't work
Location: Fantastic town, Greek theatre, restuarants, shops and really easy to get to Catania, Syracuse etc...
100 metres from Main Street, restuarants and attractions, with easy parking (not to be underestimated in this town!). Great sea views from breakfast balcony. Nice place to relax from busy town centre.

Overlook HotelPosted Jul 5, 2015
Pros: La posizione e la locaton della piscina
Cons: Pulizia, decoro, impianto di aria condizionata, disinfestazione dalle zanzare, funzionamento della doccia in piscina
Stravagante- Magnifica posizione, stabile assai grazioso. Ma albergo completamente vuoto, personale inadeguato anche se volenteroso, aria condizionata ottocentesca e zanzare padrone dello stabile

Great Location, Poor HotelPosted Jun 24, 2015 on Hotels
Let's start with the fact that you cannot beat the view or the location. The hotel is perfectly located for moving easily into and out of Taormina city center. This is where the good news ends. The breakfast buffet is not as advertised (only on the weekends), the pool was green and full of leaves, the tennis court was tired and in need of repair, the air conditioning broke twice, the water stopped running twice and the toilet broke and had to be repaired, fortunately it was fixed while we were out sightseeing. Light fixtures with 5 - 6 bulb sockets had two or three bulbs in them, internet is only available in the lobby and lastly, the elevator was under maintenance when we needed to bring all of our bags down from the 4th floor. Pass on this place.

AVOID THIS "GRAND BUDAPEST" IN RUINS STYLE HOTELPosted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: Views outside. Décor.
Cons: Almost everything frankly
Location: Taormina itself is amazing, and a lovely place, though not really for families I would say, and not cheap either
Do not stay here. No hot water at all for five days, during which time we were lied to that it would be fixed in one hour, tomorrow, this afternoon, etc, continually. When it transpired no work had been going on all week at all and the water was never being fixed when we were told it was this transformed a major inconvenience as the cold water was freezing into a really uncomfortable realisation of the blatantly fraudulent behaviour by the hotel that made no effort to offer any solution for example using the shower of another hotel. The manager repeatedly was supposed to be coming to speak to the disgruntled guests (the entire hotel custom were up in arms, especially as some paid to stay without being told of the pre-existing lack of hot water) but after waiting and losing valuable hours of the holiday it was obvious he had no intention of answering the telephone to any guest nor showing up to offer any solution or apology. Nothing at all was offered or done. Not even a small discount was offered, and eventually after 5 days we were fortunate to find another hotel (much nicer - Hotel Belvedere) that was kind enough to let us use the shower and other facilities- the staff there were a proper 4-star staff. Breakfast offering was very poor with absolutely no variety, and the cheapest processed ham and processed cheese being the main offering. Nothing local or any kind of gourmet standard at all.

Tolle Lage, aber alles andere erbärmlichPosted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Lage und Architektur
Location: Hotel befindet sich ca. 80 m vom Corso Umberto und Porta Catania. Für Unternehmungen, auch abendliche, sehr gut gelegen.
3 Tage kein warmes Wasser zum Duschen bei Temperaturen von ca. 27 Grad. Tapete löste sich z. T. von den Wänden. Reinigung des Bades bzw. des Zimmers und des Balkons ließ zu wünschen übrig. Duschvorhang mit braunen Rändern. Keine Hosenbügel im Kleiderschrank, kein Stuhl oder Sessel im Zimmer. Frühstück auf Jugendherbergsniveau. Liste ließe sich beliebig fortsetzen. Schade um das architektonisch schöne Gebäude. Hier wurde jahrelang nichts renoviert bzw. investiert. Sehr ruhig und doch zentral gelegen.

Nice hotel close to the seaPosted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: Location and views
Cons: It is a little tired and could do with some refurbishment.
Location: Excellent location at Toarmina with lots of history and beaches nearby
Situated in a great town with plenty things to do and a good choice of restaurants within walking distance. Parking was difficult and required several cars being moved to accommodate other guests and their cars.Driving in the region is difficult with narrow roads and one way systems making navigation difficult.
