“Great hotel , fab views, friendly staff”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Just got back to UK from a wonderful week staying at the meridiana hotel. We had a wonderful week here , the staff so friendly (thank you Daria) and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
Rooms lovely and clean, breakfast yummy too, the views were amazing waking up each morning overlooking stunning views of the bay and mount Etna, Taormina is such a pretty place with lots to do or just to watch the world go by in the quaint little streets , lots of restaurants to choose from too.
Thoroughly recommend this hotel as long as you don't have a problem with climbing the steep road leading to the hotel every day,, a MUST visit

I spent two weeks at the Meridiana Hotel and found it delightful. Bright, cheerful bedrooms which is a welcome change from a lot of hotels who could do with refurbishment. Large modern bathrooms again with a splash of colour..All rooms have a balcony looking over the sea. In March you can sit outside comfortably. Having tried through the years different hotels, this one is the most comfortable and friendly. The owner and the staff are always ready to help and make sure that your stay is memorable. I felt quite spoilt by the attention. Yes the walk up to the town is steep but if you take your time it is not a problem. Taormina is full of steps anyway, makes it more interesting.

We have spent in Meridiana few nights during our Christmas vacation in Taormina. Our room was nicely decorated and comfortable, a terrace had a splendid sea view. The staff was really nice and baby friendly. During the breakfast the staff played with our toddler who didn't want to stay at the table. They also were very kind and accepted to warm baby meal at all time of the day. Would like to come back.

We stayed in this hotel in October 2012, and yes, whilst the hotel was lovely we stayed in the apartments and shabby is the best description. The apartment had a very run down feel to it and the view was obstructed by the building site opposite and the numerous cables and wires hanging across the road. We were also regularly interrupted by the owner asking us to turn off the outside light - I found this particularly annoying as one time it was whilst I was eating breakfast on the balcony! The position of this apartment right in front of the road is not ideal and certainly not in a garden. The reception staff were variable, onhe girl was absolutely lovely and very helpful, one not so much and a third was too busy looking after her screaming baby to pay any attention to the queue of guests and was very rude to me as I asked more than one question when she was busy, a second guest got similar treatment. The location is quiet, apart from barking dogs, but the hill is very steep and not recommended for those who can't manage hills. On reflection I would not choose to stay here again I would opt for a hotel with private sunbathing and / or pool. Taormina is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Pick the hotel to stay in if you want the really good view and boutique style.

Just returned from a week in Taormina - we were very well looked after at the Meridiana! Really can't fault it at all. The walk into town is up a very steep hill although a lift in the jeep is available if required. Good fun! Everywhere in Taormina involves walking up or down a hill which is great if you have been indulging yourselves and need to walk it off! Would definitely recommend a stay in the Meridiana Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view and balcony. Some rooms bigger than others.

We stayed at the Hotel Meridiana in early September 2012 and loved it! The location, the staff, the view from our balcony, the town, the restaurants......amazing. Everything about the Meridiana is just as it looks on their website. Really clean, attentive staff. just a fanatastic place to stay. What made the stay even better was the ride up and down the hill in the classic Fiat jeep owned by the hotel and beautifully restored, really quaint and quirky but a great twist on getting to your accomodation. Would highly recommend the resort and the Hotel, first class on all counts.

We stayed in this hotel for our Honeymoon and chose it because it only had nine rooms. It is extremely clean and tidy and has a fantastic view of the bay from each balcony. A huge thank you to all of the staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and make our stay extra special. The hotel is situated close to the town centre and there is a climb from the hotel to the town so this hotel is not suitable for less able holiday makers. That said, it is Taoromina's position high above the Ionian sea that makes it special, so any traveller should expect to negotiate steps and slopes when visiting the town.
