Excellent location; friendly staff and outstanding view of Taormina from our room. We were delighted with our stay at this hotel; we could walk to every location and also take the bus. Breakfast was served on the terrace overlooking the city. Just lovely!

The Pensione Svizzera is really a classy hotel. The staff were very helpful with our luggage and directions to restaurants and local sites. They have a nice little bar inside for the needed nightcap after a long day of travels and site seeing. Parking if available just down the street.

This small hotel in Taormina is just outside the gates of the old city, and near to the bus station and the cable car that takes you to the beach. It is an attractive place, with a garden and a breakfast room that has wonderful views over the coast. The room we stayed in was pretty small and although there...

A well located little hotel a few minutes walk from the town centre. The staff are really lovely and helpful. The breakfast had everything you could wish for and the room overlooked the sea. Our bedroom / bathroom were simply decorated and very clean. Reviewers have mentioned the noise from water pipes etc. Yes it is a little noisy but...

We stayed two nights in room #14. The room was small but clean and had a window which had a great sea view. The windows had no screens and there is no elevator, so be warned. The room had a great air conditioner and the staff was efficient. Breakfast was good and had a variety of American and European foods....
