Hotel was very nice. Great location. Excellent breakfast. Excellent cleaning. Reception staff very pleasant, only issue was our English to Italian was not the best. Side view room was very small, once sea front room became available we changed and room was beautiful. Overall very good hotel and would come back again.

Disliked: Room comfort
Crappy but great location so wait for a deal
The mattresses in room 420 were so old they were concave (one more than the other) I asked the staff three times (in Italian and in English) for either a mattress topper (they had none), a newer mattress or to be moved to another room. I was told all the mattresses were like that. Our friend in room 322 room said one of his was bad too and one wasn't too bad. His room had a bad sewer smell so he spent most of his time out on his patio with furniture riddled with cobwebs. Our room had a tiny balcony that fit only 2 chairs with no room for your knees so if you are wanting ocean view (as we had paid for) the partial view in this room might not be what you expected. The hotel itself is faded granduer and would actually be nice if anyone cared to get new mattresses, cleaned the balconies every now and again and did something about the sewer smell. It is a great location inside the pedestrian zone - which is its only selling point (and the breakfast is pretty good with ham, cheese, boiled eggs, yogurt, breads, pastries, etc) so if you insist on staying here because of that than wait for a deal on the rooms (like less than $100) and be sure you don't stay on a floor lower than the 4th.

2 nights en-route across Sicily.
Nice spot with Sea views,but terribly difficult to have to go into a one way street...the wrong way...and reverse out...there is no right way to get there. No parking,which surprised us,as it says it is available,but you have to drive elsewhere and hope you can get it. We couldn't as everyone was double parked at the location we were sent to....we ended up paying 50 Euoros to park for 2 nights! Nice room,decent breakfast and lovely views,but access and parking was not easy.

The perfect place to stay in Taormina if you like being close to everything. Parking is nonexistent at the property but there is a big parking garage with a shuttle bus that will take you up the hill to Coursa Umberto.

Avoid this place!!! They turn off AC in hotel from 11am-3pm, during hottest hrs of the day, then from 2am-6am when you trying to get sleep. They claim this was stared “in your contract”. Front desk staff are indifferent to issues, manager is nowhere to be found.
