“Really good in every way”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

A really well located hotel, convenient for town centre but quiet with amazing views. spotlessly clean throughout and well furnished. Can't really understand that this hotel is not rated higher as much better value than most 4 * hotels in the area. Excellent reception service, broken blind mended in minutes. Reasonable breakfast and excellent evening meals.

What a beautiful view from our room ! Love the balconies with views of the coastline. Just a beautiful hotel with a great breakfast. Very clean, and neat, and friendly staff. Very convienent to walk to town. Only complaint was our room was very dark.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the coastline !

This hotel was clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The room lighting was very bright, there were several English language TV stations, and a safe in the closet. From our patio (Rm. #322), which faced west, we had a great view of the bay below and snow-covered Mt. Etna. Blackout, electric window covers block out the sun if you want to sleep in. There were many choices at the buffet breakfast.

Next to the hotel is a public park with beautiful views. The town, including the Greek amphitheater, is within walking distance. Expect hilly walks and narrow pedestrian walkways. If you have a map, there are shortcuts from the hotel to the major pedestrian walkway where you can find shops, restaurants, ATMs, etc. If you don't want to walk to the center of town, there are eateries along the narrow pedestrian walkways, e.g., exit the hotel, proceed to street level, turn left, walk straight up a slight incline rather than following the road to the right. On this pathway, you will see a market on the right and various restaurants. The one with a display case of fish on ice in the front is quite good. (Sorry, I didn't get a card with the restaurant name.) The menu is posted on two walls just outside of the restaurant. You can't get lost.

The negatives: Limited electric outlets, no clothesline in the bathroom, no coffee-maker, and no free WiFi. Because the dresser drawers were the closet, surfaces to place items are limited. Walls are thin: We could hear a noisy neighbor.

If this review is helpful, please check "Yes."

We arrived to our hotel, and it had wrap around balconies on two sides. Views of the coastline and Mt Etna, right next to an amazing park. LOVED this hotel. Clean, close to the center. We were here in winter, but the pool is gorgeous. I can only imagine. I don't think it would be very easy to drive here, but I think maybe I have to get used to Italian towns. I want to come back here....so beautiful, you can't take your eyes off the view.

Beautiful property in a beautiful city. Loved the location, breathtaking views of the coast and Mt.Etna from our balcony.Very clean room. staff was very friendly and helpful. They arranged all our tours. We had very early departure, 4 am to be exact, our boxed breakfast was waiting for us at the front desk. Loved it.

Room Tip: Room with the balcony facing the coast.

I loved this hotel!!! The location is perfect if you don't have a car which we didn't. 10 minutes to the town centre and the beautiful panoramic views that were breathtaking. The hotel staff were freindly and the rooms were spacious and clean. I would definately return here.

I Loved this hotel...gorgeous decor, super clean, and the most beautiful views, of Giardini Nexos. Perched high above the cliffs of Taormina and in walking distance to the main Piazza.. Staff friendly, tough I did have some problems, connecting to WiFi... But then I connected. I will return to this Romatic hotel soon! :)

Room Tip: book it! It wonderful!
