5/5 Excellent

Room with a view!!
Fabtastic location to enjoy one of the best views ever with the dignity of Mount Etna as a back drop. Room we had was small but very adequate with a balcony overlooking everything. Staff were all top notch and hotel facilities, including a pool and deck, worthy of this location. A nice oasis from the hustle and bustle of beautiful Taormina below. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Have to pay for coffee even if breakfast included
The hotel is very high on the hill. The rooms are very old fashioned style. Shower very bad. Ran out of hot water and had no pressure. Pool closes at 7 pm. They Charged for coffee for included breakfast, which is weird in Italian culture.
