We stayed here for 7 days and the staff were good. One spoke enough English to get by with and so this was useful when we needed anything/information.

Parking was fine, but tricky to get to by car, probably best leaving hiring of a car until you are leaving Taormina.
Swimming pool was nice, but deep. I could not go in comfortably being 5 foot 2" tall. (shallow end was approx 1.75m deep and deep end 2.5m)
The breakfasts (we stayed bed and breakfast) were poor. Considering the amount of fresh produce available everywhere, the hotel did not have any, apart from tomatoes and a few pears. Rest of breakfast consisted of biscuits and packaged items. It could have been so much better.

The family room we had was a good enough size and was cleaned daily, however the bedsheets in our bedroom were smelly always (sort of smell that occurs when sheets have not been dried properly before storeage) and our bathroom also had a lingering smell which would not go away.

There was a radio in the room which did not work and a TV which did work.

Apart from this a good place to stay within relatively easy reach of Taormina, approx 10-15 minutes walk down hill. Coming back was a lot more difficult due to the hill. At the bottom of the hill there was a lovely pasticcerie called L'amour, where a delicious icecream (or cakes) could be obtained to make the climb back easier.

We stayed in this hotel for 2nights. Free parking, but you must walk down a 5mins hill to get your car there, maneuvering the car into the car park is a tricky ordeal! The location of the hotel is a good 10-15minute fast paced walk to Taormina town centre.The staff were lovely and the older lady owner was just adorable, not a word of English but we still managed to have a giggle and chat. No Wifi, except in the lobby and that didn't work very well. The bedroom was fine, pretty basic but it did have a nice terrace with amazing views. For the price we paid it was ideal.The front gate was locked after 10.30pm the nights we stayed and had to press a buzzer to get let in- it was like staying at somebodies house instead of a hotel! The pool was tiny and uninviting looking, although clean- we did not use it. As for the breakfast, I have to agree with a previous poster- it's not worth getting out of bed for. No fruit, no choice of anything and the bread was hard. It mainly consisted of sweet treats and two types of cereal. The lady who served us breakfast was kind and friendly and we thank her for her hospitality, along with Laura at the reception.Overall, it was a nice place to stay and for a 3* star hotel it is as good as they come! Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: A room with a seaview is definately a good choice.

The rooms are quite small but are cleaned daily and fresh towels left each day. The aircon wasn't working properly so it was hard to get a goods nights sleep, as in July it was very hot at night. The pool again was small but very clean. Breakfast was included between 7.30 and 9.30 but in all honesty it really isn't worth getting up for crackers and stale bread. The staff were nice enough but not overly friendly and didn't bother to do anything about the aircon despite two requests. It's a bit of a walk up and down hills to centre of town too. We very much enjoyed our stay in Taormina and with a few small improvements this hotel would be really nice. The view from our room was fantastic.

My wife and I spent two days in Taromina right after Christmas 2011 and stayed at the Andromaco Palace Hotel. We did not have a reservation when we arrived. Some hotels were closed for Christmas. We got really lucky when the Andromaco had room for us. The room was small but well appointed. Views were breathtaking. The staff was very friendly, professional, and English speaking. We arrived late at night and the staff welcomed us graciously. They provided good references on restaurants. There was an adorable little dog that hung out at the desk. Breakfast was great. Parking was tricky but we did have a place to park. It was December so we did not use the pool or access the beach. I did not look for a spa or exercise room. If you want a work out go run some of the wonderful hills. We had a great stay and I would recommend this hotel to friends.

Taormina is a beautiful place, great to wander round. This hotel is a ten minute walk from the Porta Cappuccini at the eastern end of town. It is small, friendly and family run. The rooms are nice, most have balconies with a view down to the sea. Breakfast is good. There is car parking, but like everywhere in the old part of town, driving and parking is difficult. It's good value for money and a good choice if you don't mind the walk.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the sea

We spent a week here and found it perfectly fine for a three-star. Nice staff especially Senora. Water not always hot. Trek to the town got one down after a while (800 metres). Lovely fresh orange juice and amazing selection of sweet biscuits at breakfast.
