Hotel Villa Belvedere
Ranked #7 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2009

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Belvedere Hotel, Taormina (www.villabelvedere.it ) for three nights in May 2009, based on reviews in Trip Advisor. The hotel is beautiful and located in a quiet area of town near the Botanical Garden, and about a 10 minute walk to Taormina’s main pedestrian street. We originally had arranged for two nights but decided to extend our stay. The hotel staff was very accommodating, and was able to book us a beautiful seaview room with a balcony for three nights. The room and bathroom were large and very clean. The Hotel staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very fresh with good variety. We arrived early before our room was ready so they recommended that we have lunch by their pool – lunch was excellent. The morning we left we needed to catch a very early train before breakfast was available at 7:00 a.m. The staff kindly offered and prepared coffee and tea and a simple breakfast for us before 5:00 a.m. at no charge. (They also made arrangements for a 6 a.m. taxi on a Sunday.) I’m not sure how many five star hotels would provide the same service! We would definitely recommend the Villa Belvedere.

Stayed for a week here with my mum at the beginning of June. Really lovely hotel. Very typically sicilian, no frills, but wonderful service. We stayed in Room 27 which I think had possibly one of the best terraces, with the most beautiful view of the sea and Mount Etna. The pool area was nice and quite quiet and the pool lunches were delicious. You could walk into the centre of Taomina within a few minutes.
It is only a three star which is probably about right as there is no restaurant for the evening, no fridge in the rooms and the rooms are basic(ish) so if they are necessitites for you, don't come here. You are paying for the view, location and wonderful gardens and great service. I loved it.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to others, really wonderful.

It's hard to find a comparable hotel, with beatiful pool and wonderful gardens in expensive Taormina for this money. We payed 160 euro for the room, which was very acceptable. You get see view, although very limited. Of course there are better rooms, paying more. Staff is highly professional and polite, from desk man to car valet. A very nice and relaxing stay. Just corridors and common spaces look a bit agee, needing some renovation.

We stayed at the Villa Belvedere in Taormina at the beginning of June 2009. We had a wonderful welcome, a fabulous room overlooking the sea and Mt Etna, a large bathroom - all spotlessly clean. The pool area is wonderful and serves excellent lunches. The hotel is in an excellent location, away from the hustle and bustle, but only 5 mins walk away. It is difficult to find though but it does have a car park. All the staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble. We would happily recommend it to anyone.

We are a group of 8 friends (4 couples) of mature years (50-60ish) who like to take a short break together in May each year. This year we booked to stay for a 4 night break at Villa Belvedere through 'The Sicilian Experience'
We were delighted with the beautiful location of the hotel and with the wonderful views of the Med and Mount Etna from our clean, comfortable rooms. The terraces and gardens are beautiful and create a very relaxing atmosphere.
We enjoyed the hotel's facilities - we enjoyed having a drink in the bar before we went out for our meal each evening and were able to sit in the comfortable and welcoming lounge when we returned. We also sampled the lunch menu on our last day and enjoyed a tasty meal around the swimming pool.
The staff were all friendly and were very helpful, especially with helping us to organise a trip to Siracusa.
Villa Belvedere is very well situated for a stroll into Taormina town to see the sites or shops and there are many good restaurants within easy walking distance. There is also a pretty botanical garden just along the road from the hotel.
We had a superb break and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a beautiful location in a friendly hotel within walking distance of the charming town of Taormina.

My friend and I spent one night at the Belvedere and were very satisfied. When we checked in the desk clerk asked if we'd like to pay an extra EUR25 to upgrade to a room with a view of Mt. Etna and the sea. We didn't think that was necessary so we declined the offer. After we left our bags in the room and on the way out to walk around the town, the desk clerk called us over and said that she spoke to the manager and would be happy to upgrade us to the view room at no extra charge. We accepted the offer and it turned out it would definitely have been worth the extra EUR25. The room was large, clean and comfortable. French doors opened on to a patio with chairs surrounded by flowers and a great view. My friend and I spent a few hours in the early evening having a drink and relaxing there.
The hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from the main street of Taormina. A perfect location. I definitely recommend this hotel.
