We found the staff at the HVC so friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with Prosecco and a run down of the sites in Taormina. The rooms, while small, were beautifully appointed. We would highly recommend!

This is a beautiful hotel with helpful staff. The breakfast was great with spectacular views around Taormina and of Mt Etna. However, room 101, our room, didn’t match with the standards of the rest of the hotel: 1) this room is on the ground floor and located right by the

Dear Oureas, I would like to personally thank you for your sincere review posted after the very first night of the 2019 season for Villa Carlotta. I am sorry for the issues you had in your room and really apologize for the bad functioning of your shower.You have stayed only one night and I didn't have time to apologize personally and propose you a compensation. If you wish to contact me through the hotel I'd be more than happy to discuss it with you. However I disagree to your judgment of the room, really too severe. This room has just been restored to a super luxury room, one of the largest we have with an amazing Carrara marble bathroom, huge walk-in shower and a double internal door between the bedroom and the living room so that you have a DBL barrier between you and the corridor. For what concerns the temperature - excuse me but 25/26 degrees in March in Taormina is impossible, it could be in May or June; I wonder why you didn't actionate the digital temperature control to set your preferred temperature. I assure you that the shower problem has been promptly solved and again I apologize for the unconvenience. The room 101 is still one of our guests preferred room for its great standing panoramic balcony and sea view, its large size to be a dbl and its luxury amenities.In years we have never had noise issues as the hotel itself is extremely quiet. Thank you again, I am looking forward to have you again in our hotel as a special guest. Kind regards, Andrea Quartucci, the owner

Dear Moorhouse-farm, it has been absolutely lovely to meet you last week during your stay in one of our beautiful panoramic apartments located at a few meters from our reception and open ALL YEAR ROUND. Thank you for your compliments about your luxury accomodation, highlithing our amazing view over snow-capped smoking Mount Etna and the big blue Ionian sea that you can enjoy straight from your stunning terrace where a large daybed is located and where sometimes some people there slept all night long!!!! Both the Hotel Villa Carlotta (reopening on March first while the apts are always open) are located in an ideal position, a few minutes easy walk to the pedestrian area, less than five to many restaurants and little shops as well as the main touristic attractions including the nearby world-known public gardens. AS part of the staff serving you I personally thank you for your words and look forward to welcome you back in the near future. Arrivederci, Simona, front office manager @ Hotel Villa Carlotta, Taormina

Dear 508jmw, in Taormina parking is extremely restricted and difficult. However Villa Carlotta provides a valet parking at a cost of euro 22,00 a day. You can drop the car in front of the hotel and with a short note to reception have it back in a few minutes. We remind you that from our hotel you can go everywhere in town by walk. Kind regards, Hotel Villa Carlotta, staff
