We stayed two nights in room #14. The room was small but clean and had a window which had a great sea view. The windows had no screens and there is no elevator, so be warned. The room had a great air conditioner and the staff was efficient. Breakfast was good and had a variety of American and European foods....

We spent 4 nights in Taormina arriving by Train from Syracuse. We caught a Taxi to the hotel which we shared with another - cost us E15. I noted the large bus terminal is just down the road. Taormina is on a steep cliff - so fortunately this hotel is located just away from the main entrance to the town,...

We found Taormina itself crowded and expensive, but the Pensione Svizzera made a very civilised and inviting retreat. It is quiet and elegant and all rooms have stunning views of the coast. They all have private balconies but ours also had a private terrace area with a breath-taking view. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and complimentary afternoon tea...

We had a nice room -I thought we had booked an attic room with a seaview but was pleased we were on the first floor as there is no lift and I had to take the suitcases up myself !We could still see a bit of the sea though.The room was comfortable but it could definitely do with a fridge...

This is my go to hotel when I visit Taormina. What makes this hotel good is the fact that it's family run. Rooms are spacious and are always very clean. Views from the "rooms with view" are just breathtaking. The staff are always helpful and are amongst the few that speak English. Finally the breakfast is very good and is...

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location is probably the best in Taormina as it is easy( it's all relative in Taormina) to drive in from the motorway and park at the back of the hotel. Close to the steps(down) to the beach and funicular (back up or both ways if you prefer!) and close to the amazing Greek...

For some reason we thought this hotel was on the edge of town. WRONG. It's just around the corner (nearly level) from the old town gates and within a few hundred metres of dozens of good to great restaurants--everything was easy for us. The staff were exceptional. "Guisy" (sp?) on the front desk was there a lot and extremely helpful...

Hotel La Pensione Svizzera was a very pleasant place in a good location. If you are traveling by bus, it is a two minute walk from hotel. The garden outdoor area is charming for breakfast and Happy Hour or just relaxing any time of day. Breakfast included was good quality European style fare. Cappuccino was excellent. I had an "economy"...

Nice and close to the centre of Taormina and the sea views are good. The main issue was no sound insulation between floors and rooms meaning every day we were woken up early by other people's cases and alarms. The breakfast was pretty average.
