I've stayed a week in Velo d'oro,the main positive thing is that it is perfectly located,when you get down the stairs you're right in casa umberto.
The room they have given us was queit dated,very old furnitere en a nasty looking bath.
The view was a little bit disapointing,we faced only on a Sicilian family's backyard, no see view at all.
Reception staff was not that friendly, i'm working myself as a hotelreceptionist and I didn't found it a very warm welcome.
Breakfast was average, the positive point was that you could take it with you at the sunny terrace.
Staff who served breakfast were at the other hand very nice and helpfull.
What was really nice was the top terrace, it had an amazing view on the lower side of taormina,the ocean and the Etna, at night it was breath taking.
The negative point was that I mostly missed a swimpool, they don't have it over there.
When you go down with the stairs from velo d'Oro you run into Romeo and Juliet, a nice bar with nice music, people constantly dancing, a very good atmosphere.
Velo d'oro is good for the price, but it it is just not that amazing.
