I stayed for 1 week at the Hotel San Pietro with my husband. It was October, so towards the end of season and the hotek certainly wasn't full. However, we came to relax for a week and so this was perfect for us.
We booked a package trip with Thomson from LGW including flight, transfer and the hotel itself. This all worked out fine and no complaints.
The hotel itself is located slightly out of town. About a 10 minute walk (uphill) into the town centre, but downhill from town back to the hotel which is good after a hearty meal at one of Taormina's many fine restaurants or trattorias. Alternatively, you can take the hotel's free shuttle bus either way if you don't fancy the walk. The lobby area is well presented and staff are very friendly and helpful (and good at English).
The rooms are fairly spacious and very clean. I am a stickler for cleanliness and couldn't find anything to complain about on the cleanliness front. We also had a balcony looking out onto the Ionian Sea and pool area which was lovely.
Although the breakfast was lovely and a really good buffet spread, we only ate in the hotel restaurant one night and weren't that impressed. Compared to the prices in the centre of town, the hotel restaurant is the most expensive we came across. The food was ok, but certainly did not justify the price. Once was enough!
The centre of town is lovely. Old charming streets with old buildings. You can easily get lost just meandering around. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and trattorias to choose from too.
All in all, this was exactly what we were looking for. A really relaxing stay and would certainly recommend this hotel.
