we selected it in last minute as we hadn't had a reservation before arrived in Taormina. We shouldn't have.
The room was increadible small, the view was nothing (just a dirty rooftop) and the breakfast was also very poor.
The location is good on the other hand, just a few step to the main street.
What made me really angry that it was a big lie. Their website looks great, with giant balcony with view to the Etna, but it's not true. They have a rooftop "suit" which is also very small, and only that has the balcony so nobody else can use it.
The owner was very nice and helpful when we arrived, and suggested us a nice local trattoria: Il Baccanale where we recieve 10% discount. We tried it and again shouldn't have. No taste, no quantity, even did not provide the discount. Really the worst restaurant we've been during the 2 weeks roundtrip in Sicily. So altogether it was a big disappointment, as we expected much more!
