I really loved this little hotel. I can be picky about hotels and especially about service, but this place lived up to the great reviews.
To sum up the negatives:
The rooms are small. There is no elevator in a four-floor hotel. You need to ask the front desk for an internet password and it will work for a limited time.
But none of these things spoiled the positives, in my opinion. The courtyard area with comfy outdoor furniture is lovely. On a few occasions we visited the bar in the hotel, where the night desk person would make us drinks and serve them to us on a little tray. In general, the front desk staff were extremely polite and helpful. The breakfast offers decent variety and is palatable. The location is great for taking in the spectacular views of Taormina and for visiting the main Corso. And, though we didn't stay there to work, the internet is very speedy. We also got a complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival, I think because I mentioned we were there for our honeymoon.
So, if you don't mind walking up the stairs and you're not spending your whole trip in the room (why would you anyway?) you won't regret staying here.
