We stayed at this hotel after arriving in Giardini-Naxos and discovering that the air-conditioning at the hotel we booked at originally was not working. Since it was super hot while we were there, we decided that we couldn't stay there and walked up the street to find ourselves at Hotel San Giovanni on Via Umberto. What a great find!! Its a very modern hotel with clean rooms. The service staff were very courteous and helpful. The room rate was much better than our original hotel (we paid 80E per night, instead of 135E at the other place!). The only complaints I have about the hotel are that the walls are quite thin, so we could easily hear the children and loud conversations in other rooms, and the breakfast was a bit lacking (just croissants, danishes, yogurt, bread and cereal - I would have liked something savoury for breakfast).
The location is good - steps away from the beach. The front of the hotel faces the main street and Piazza San Giovanni, and the back faces some train tracks. Our room was in the middle of the building, so luckily, we didn't hear any noise from the front and back. However, we only had a small window that looked out into an unremarkable courtyard, so we didn't get much light in the room. This wasn't a problem though, since we spent the day away from the room exploring the area anyways.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
