Hotel Villa Carlotta
Ranked #3 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2009

We stayed 3 nights in a junior suite which was very spacious and elegantly decorated. The hotel is in a quiet location just 10mins walk to the centre of Taormina. Every member of staff provided first class service always smiling and ery friendly. Reception happily arranged a private excursion to Mt. Etna and recommended restaurants and places to visit. Simply the best hotel we stayed in during our trip to Siciliy. Highly recommended and would not hesitate to return.

Apologies to Villa Carlotta for not having written this sooner, the slow pace of life we experienced in Sicily quickly vanished when we returned Home.

Wow what a place!
It is a complete sensory experience, from the spotlessly clean Hotel, large bedrooms with great views, to the fresh cinnamon smells wafting through the hallways, the wide selection of food served at breakfast, plus of course the staff who simply couldn’t do enough for you.
Mornings on the terrace overlooking the clear blue sea and to your right the smoking Mount Etna were simply breathtaking, and something I will not forget.

The Hotel has a modern twist but still exudes a tradition that you expect from a top class Hotel, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was exceptional.

Nothing was too much trouble, they were happy to make recommendations on anything from Restaurants to Tour guides, to Beaches (take the complimentary shuttle bus to Stockholm) a lovely little stretch of beach (with again some of the friendliest staff you will come across, with a great little restaurant serving fresh seafood)

There is so much choice when it comes to eating out in Taormina, in the evenings it was always a pleasure to stroll through the town and choose where best to eat.
Sit back enjoy a drink, window shop, people watch and soak up Sicily, it is a truly memorable place and I am desperate to return, Hotel Villa Carlotta would be top of my list!

Thank you.

We stayed here from the 21st june for 1 week and had a fantastic holiday. The rooms are classy and elegant and the decor in the hotel is very stylish and a nice mix of the modern and the old. The location is perfect as it is handy fo rthe cable cars down to the beach and is a short stroll in to the centre itself. The rooms were always cleaned immaculately and the breakfast is first class and with stunning views from the rooftop terrace to enjoy while eating it. The service from the bar staff and the reception is first class and they could not have been more helpful or friendly. The people that work there are a credit to the hotel as they help make it what it is. Special thanks go to Maria who served our table most mornings for breakfast and hepled us start the day feeling great right from the off and especially to Antonio on front desk who went out of his way to help us with providing information on restaurants to eat in and advice on anything we wanted to know and ringing round for us to find out.
We would highly recommend this hotel and will come back here again and again.

A wonderful hotel right where you want to be in Taormina!
Walking distance to all the restaurants and bars (this is not the case for all the other recommended hotels).

Travelled with my wife to Taormina to celebrate her 40th birthday - organised by Kirker travel agency. We were lucky to be upgraded to a delux suite with large terrace, which made a huge difference - being able to sit outside with splendid views.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with good advice on restaurants, only complaint was they failed to provide our requested wake-up call at 5am on our departure date. The gardens were small but well furnished and the pool was most welcome (although again small). Easy walk into town and restaurants and bars.
Recommended restaurants - Licchio's, everybody recommends - good food and cheaper but not great room. Al Dourno, great views if you have an ouside table, slightly more expensive but worth it. Maffei's, the best restaurant we went to - small but great service, food and wine - more expensive but definitely worth it.

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is just outside the center of town near the bus station. So you will need to walk into the center to have dinner, The hotel is lovely with views over looking the sea. The staff is excellent and the breakfast is fabulous. It is the best breakfast we had in Sicily or for that matter in Italy. The breakfast room is located on the top floor and you can take breakfast outside on the terrace on inside. We loved our room it had a large balcony with lounge chairs that we could relax and enjoy our stay. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. It is incredibly relaxing. It,s elegant without being stuffy. Beautifully designed, the hotel mixes old and new and the bar is one of the most amazing rooms we have ever seen. We loved our room, it was spacious and overlooked the sea, breakfast was consistently good. The pool area is really lovely. Everything about the Villa Carlotta is special but it is the staff that made our holiday truly memorable. Nothing was too much trouble for the front desk, the breakfast staff were superb and so friendly, and the cleaning staff always had a smile while doing an excellent job. We would happily recommend the Villa Carlotta to anyone.
