“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

This is a very basic but super hotel. The owner was very friendly and attentive. The hotel cat was a great hit with my kids. Gardini Naxos was a great place to stay with easy access to Taormina, Etna and the general area. The beach at Gardini was great for the children. All in all great value and good snorkelling!

I'm writing this review because the owner, a kind gentleman and wonderful host, deserves it.

His hotel/house is definitely better than a one or two star, which it seems to officially be. I'm not sure why it's not a 3 star. As everyone has mentioned, the view from both the bedrooms and the breakfast terrace are some of the best in the world. The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. You feel at home. The breakfast is delicious and generous. The owner makes excellent cafe lattes/cappucinos.

I think, I hope, my wife and I will return. It was everything we could've wanted. A big thank you to our hosts. Grazie!

Room Tip: I'm not sure if there are rooms without seaviews, but just to make sure ask for one. Really I d...

We stayed in Sicily for 2 Weeks in September 2011, in Giardini Naxos we spent more than 9 Days. The hotel was really nice and quiet with view over the sea. We felt very welcome because of the family atmosphere and the insider tipps given to us for sightseeing trips.

So don´t hesitate, it is clean and the breakfast on the big terrace with view on the Etna is perfect, too.

Actually it is more than a 2 Star Hotel!

Greets to Hamid and Rosa, thanks for everything!

For a mere €50 per night, you really can't beat it on a budget! Marvelous views of the Med and Etna, and breakfast is included in the price. Simple, small rooms. My wife and I stayed in one room with our son while my in-laws stayed in another room.

Staff is very helpful and kind. We had a terrible experience with Air B&B and this was a last minute choice because I couldn't let my family sleep at our original booking under such poor conditions. Thank you, Orpheus!

Room Tip: In the summer if you need air conditioning, ask for a room that has it. Some don't, and I also n...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2007

My wife & I stayed at the Orpheus May 25 thru June 1 , 2007 along with friends originally from Sicily who told us about the hotel. We paid 70 euro per night for 2. We had room #11 top floor excellent room with view of Etna from our bed. The rooms are basic with standup showers but, all in all it was well worth the price. The room is on the top floor with the doors opening up to the roof which is all open for some of the best views of Etna & Taormina(SP?). Everything was just a short walk away. We enjoyed several meals at La Sirena. We would & will definitely stay there again. The hotel owner is great. We enjoyed several late nights with him drinking some great wine. Can't wait to get back again. Warning, Sicilians are of the most aggressive drivers I have ever seen. When in Rome! LOL Feel free to E-mail with any questions. HAMMRR2@AOL.COM
