Cute property, right in the middle of taormina, pretty close to bars, restaurants and every attraction the city is known for. I didn't care for the room ( you can smell cigarettes from outside, from the restaurant patio and the shower is located in the middle of the room, soaking up floors). Loris the manager?was absolutely fantastic.

We have been lucky enough to stay in many fabulous hotels. I would certainly recommend the Medousa to my friends & family. Superb position to explore this beautiful town. The staff/friends went the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Loris our contact made sure we had all the information we needed and also his personal cell phone for any questions once he had left the hotel. The rooms are modern, clean and fresh and all set in this amazing historic building built into the city wall. The bistro dinner we had at the hotel was delicious and the ambience perfect. We will most certainly revisit Medusa in the future if we are able to come back to Taormina.
