5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Quaint, clean and in the center of it all
I only had one day in Taomarina, so I wanted to be close to the amphitheater and shopping district. This was perfect. You can take the local bus from the train station for 2eu and be at the hotel in 15mins from the bus stop. Comparatively the price cannot be beat.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness
Great location to see Taormina
The hotel is situated on the Main Street so it's perfect if it's your first time in Taormina. The room has everything you need and a nice big balcony however we kept running out of hot water which was not pleasant. Overall the room was clean and the hotel is good for its location.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great location, great staff.
We enjoyed our stay here. The location cannot be beat. The staff is terrific and very accommodating. The room was okay. Decent size. VERY small shower--isn't even a shower really, just a curtain around a small area of the already small bathroom. Air-conditioning could have been cooler. The main issue is with the iffy wifi--which was terrible at night. We had to constantly ask the front desk to reboot it which was a pain. There should be someone slated to reboot it every few hours. Otherwise, we were quite impressed.

Fantastic Hotel!
What a great hotel! Guiseppe was so nice and accommodating. The upstairs bed was a little firm, but the downstairs ones were fine. A little noisy, but you're directly on the main street. AC worked amazingly and there was plenty of hot water. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much for a great stay!
