Dear PRPARKY, we are both happy to read that you appreciated our discreet complicity in creating pleasant that little surprise on your father’s 70th birthday. The most important thing when staying at a hotel is the good feeling of being welcomed and personally looked after and it’s nice to realize that you felt and enjoyed exactly that. It's both the staff and their personal positive attitude, as well as the little things that make the difference, turning a hotel stay into a perfect experience. Home away from home.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a food tour of Sicily and absolutely loved it. We were only in Taormina for 2 nights and the weather was really poor. The warm welcome, attentive service and the breathtaking view totally made up for it. Breakfast was a memorable experience, pac

Dear Pedri2, it is a pleasure to read that our hotel turned out to be the perfect place to stay for your selected, first food tour of Sicily last October. Yes our breakfast served a la carte menu is exactly what you expect to find when making a Slow Food tour of Sicily: local and seasonal quality products, most of them certified organic ones, genuine gastronomic ambassadors of our beautiful Island. Looking forward to welcome your next Back Track Adventure Group to Sicily, Taormina greets Brisbane Christine and Gerhard Schuler manager Hotel Villa Schuler, Taormina link to Hotel website at the top centre of this TripAdvisor page

Dear michaeljI470F, thank you for the many compliments and for your useful recommendation to other guests of reserving a garage space with our valet parking service. YES, Hotel Villa Schuler is one of the few hotels in the medieval town centre of Taormina beeing directly reachable by car and having an own garage with efficient valet parking service. The mentioned cost of Euro 20 is reduced to Euro 16 for all direct reservations through our own website, in some off season periods it is even offered for free. We took note that the advantage of this parking facilities can turn into the frowney of feeling disturbed by the noise of other cars on the small one-way Via Roma that reaches our hotel. On the other side, if you think about it, the pleasure of hearing the relaxing distant sound of gently breaking waves on the Ionian shore 200 meters below us, shows that our position is a unique and quiet one although we are at just one walking minute from Taorminas pedestrian town centre. Looking forward to welcoming you again, "arrivederci a Taormina" Christine and Gerhard Schuler manager Hotel Villa Schuler, Taormina link to Hotel website at the top centre of this TripAdvisor page
