Hotel Villa Schuler
Ranked #8 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 November 2011

Few meters away from from the main street of Taormina, the villa Schuller offers very nice rooms, a great terrace with amazing views on the bay. Breakfast was very good and enjoyed on the terrace. The hotel can also offer a parking slot for your car. Rare in Taormina. Service was excellent. All those reason and the location make the Schuller villa a bit expensive, but again we are in Taormina...

We were very pleased with the hotel, although the walls are very thin and we could hear the neighbors. Breakfast is cooked to order and served on a lovely terrace. The staff were very helpful. My only regret is that based on a trip advisor recommendation we booked the sunrise junior suite. The room is fine, there's a small sitting area and a reasonable sized terrace with two lounge chairs. The problem is that you can't see the water unless you're standing because there's a high wall that blocks the view! If you want a private lounging area the suite may be great. If you want views from your room, don't book the sunrise junior suite.

Dear guest from Chicago, I am glad you liked your stay at our hotel and I'm sorry for that little regret about having booked the Sunrise Junior Suite. Our room description states that its sun terrace is overlooking the sea. Every terrace needs to have a railing that can be a metal or a concrete one. As clearly shown on the photos on our web page the concrete railing on the 3rd floor terraces of our Sunrise Junior Suites is elbow high being 96 cm/37,8 inches high, just the minimum requirement for safe hotel terraces.

So the “high wall” was in fact a concrete railing elbow high blocking the otherwise unobstructed frontal sea view only when lying in the sunbeds.

We really could not fault this hotel. Our room was comfortable and spacious with everything we needed. The view was superb. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice including eggs done every which way. But best of all were the people on the reception desk. Each one we dealt with was incredibly helpful and, what's more, they seemed happy about it. They gave great directions for getting to Catania, picking up fuel on the way; they looked after our car and our bags; they provided umbrellas to keep us dry. They smiled! Even the room cleaners were happy and helpful. Thanks Villa Schuler - it was a great end to our Sicilian holiday.

Dear guest from Camberra, we thank you for the nice words you said about our staff and their smiling attitude. We are a team of 12 plus we 2 managers . It’s a larger family with staff members loyal since an average of at least 12 years, some even up to 26 years.

Of course it‘s not always a Bed of Roses but we try hard in providing genuine personal attention to all our guests which are mostly individual travellers discovering our beautiful island.

We loved our stay,beautiful view from our superior double over the bay,at night with all the lights just as good.Breakfast outside on the terrace,very laid back and relaxed while gazing at the view.Panoramic roofterrace even better.The garden is beautiful and will be very pleasant in summer as it is shaded. conveniently located 50meters from the main street.All the staff were very helpful and professional and the carparking was excellent.
Maybe nice toiletries,fresh orange juice and home made cake,a little soundproofing,an airco servic and some fancier furniture in the room would make a tiny difference in what is already very good.

From the moment you arrive you will not be disappointed by anything at the Villa Schuler. Mr. Schuler even helped us unload our car when we arrived. This is much more than a 3 star hotel. It shares the views with all the famous 5 star hotels and is simply charming. I requested a seaview room (with a discount for Nov.) and was accommodated without problem. Parking was also available (a special offer - free) under the villa in their own garage. Best is the made to order breakfast on the outdoor terrace. Enjoy the beautiful villa gardens - many hidden places to sit and enjoy coffee or wine. Just a short walk to all sites. Extremely hospitable and gracious.

Room Tip: Request a seaview but the garden rooms also have nice views of the town.

Top notch all the way. Villa Schuler has it all from top of the line amenities (like a fabulous jacuzzi shower) to fantastic, helpful multi lingual staff and sumptuous breakfast served (not buffet) on the rooftop patio with an incredible view overlooking the sea. Villa Schuler affords you everything that comes to mind when you think of Taormina. The location is perfect, being just a few steps away from the main street. The gardens are lovely and very private. If you don't have a balcony room, you can take your wine up to the lovely rooftop and enjoy the mountain and water view. It's like heaven!

Room Tip: Our room on the first floor had a private garden and was very quiet. We loved the 8 jet, double hea...

I wasn't going to review this one . . . told myself that it was just another truly top notch hotel . . . and then we walked out onto the breakfast veranda and I couldn't get my mouth to stay closed. At least 270 degrees of breathtaking beauty that made Capri look like a long stretch of Nevada Freeway. The breakfast was terrific as well (ordered from a menu). Staff was attentive and helpful to a flaw. Place was clean and new. Very well situated just off the main drag. Piece of cake for the GPS to get you into and then out of and back on the autostrada without any of the usual Italian place finding/narrow street surviving elements whatever. One simply pulls up into a dedicated parking spot for arrivals and an attendant parks his car.
