The Hotel Villa Schuler was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on our 10 day trip around Sicily. This comes down to the spectacular views and the location which is a mere minute walk to the main pedestrian street in Taormina. We booked the Sunrise Junior Suite which was advertised as being a smaller room which was very true. The room was quite small however the balcony by comparison was quite large. The balcony was lovely to sit on in the evening or early morning before it got too hot (it had direct sun in the morning only). We could see Mt Etna if we looked to the right at the edge of the balcony. The only problem with the balcony was that the front of the balcony was concrete and quite high so that you had to be sitting in a chair (and not the lounger) to be able to see the view of the sea. A small complaint really.
The room was nice but nothing flash which was a surprise for the price. The bathroom was also small but functional. Breakfast was very nice on the large terrace overlooking the sea. We paid €15 per day for the guaranteed parking which was ok and we noticed there were no other spots to chance getting your own car spot. We got 10% off for paying in cash and 10% off for staying 2 nights, but we still felt we paid a lot. I wouldn't stay in the same room as we felt it was a bit small. The overall experience however at Villa Schuler was good, so I'd probably stay there again in a cheaper room.
