“Hidden Jewel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

We stayed 3 nights here during our recent trip to Sicily. The hotel is very centrally located in upper Taormina--right on the main street. The rooms are large and have lots of convenience you might not expect in a less expensive hotel--balcony, telephone, TV, modern bathroom--but no pool or fitness center for those that need these things. A lovely breakfast was included (the best cappuccino!). This whole area of Taormina is a pedestrian zone; so you must park in one of the parking lots or structures. While the hotel gives you a discount card (40%), it still runs you another 10 euros/day. The staff was very helpful and spoke some English. Good suggestions and always pleasant. Very good value in this pricey city. I would definitely stay there again. DW

Room Tip: If you need quiet, ask for a room away from the front street.

We were only in Taormina for 1 night and having the hotel right on the main street made it really convenient. The staff was really helpful and even allowed us to hang out at the hotel on the second night until 10:30 since we were boarding an 11:30 train. The room was nice and spacious. With the main street below, it was a bit noisy at night.

The only complaint is the terrible WIFI connection. You couldn't be in your room and get reception. You had to go sit out in the hallway.

Overall, a nice place with pleasant staff in a beautiful city. For the price (lower than most everything in town), it was a great deal and would definitely go back.

My girlfirend and I, together with another couple, travelled to Sicily for a short holiday. After a bit of research we decided to stay in Taormina and in the Victoria Hotel. I can state categorically that both of those were very good decisions.

The town is literally one of the most beautiful, rustic and authentically Italian towns you can imagine. Of course there are the usual tourist shops etc but a walk around the town presents a myriad of things to do and see. The views of the coast alone are spectacular.

The Victoria Hotel really helped to make or stay enjoyable. It is family run hotel but professionaly turned out. I would consider myself to have high (not expensive) standards and tastes. The hotel was immaculately clean and our room was clearly recently refurbished. The hotel presents itself as 2 stars but I would say that is mainly due to the fact that you're not getting the frilly ameneties of a 5 star e.g. spa, pool, michelin star restaurant etc. and certainly nothing to do with the standard that this hotel offers.

All in all the hotel is budget accommadation but of a very high calibre within that category. The guys who run it couldn't do enough for us, from restaurant recommendations, to booking taxis, to helping to organise excursions. We were even able to use the computer to check in online and print boarding passes.

Breakfast is included and it is typically continental - cereal, juice, breads, cheese, cold meats, eggs etc. The espresso in the morning is very good indeed. We went around Easter time and they had mini chocolate eggs on the breakfast tabel in the morning - small touches that I think mean a lot.

There is limited car parking but we emailed the hotel well in advance and they were happy to reserve a space for us.

If I was to return to Taormina (which I would love to do) I would definitely stay in Victoria Hotel.

Room Tip: We asked specifically for a double room as some are twin - the hotel was happy to cater for us.

Right in the middle of the main walking promenade, Corso Umberto, is this charming small hotel. After comparing pros and cons of this and other Taormina hotels, my daughter and I chose Victoria initially because in this expensive town, the price was right. We will choose it again our next visit because of the experience. Staff always smiling and helpful, they really understand the value of service, and how it can improve a guest's outlook on everything (e.g., our cell did not work in Italy, and they cheerfully allowed us use the office PC to search TripAdvisor for restaurants). Room was good size, very clean and modern. No view of the sea, but you do see Corso Umberto which is a beautiful pedestrian-friendly street custom-made for tourists. The promenade alternates among beautiful churches and other historical buildings, shops and restaurants with an occasional piazza offering breathtaking views of the sea and Giordani-Naxos. Taormina is one of the most beautiful towns I have ever visited, and there is plenty to do for such a small town: Isola Bella, Corso Umberto, Greek Teatro, plenty of great restaurants and other memorable sites. Add that it is centrally located, offering many day excursions to places like Mt. Etna, we will definitely visit again and will stay at Hotel Victoria.

Small rooms, nice breakfast, good location, WiFi only in public areas (not in rooms). There are a few parking places if you reserve early and are brave enough to negotiate the narrow streets, many of which are steep grades. The hotel did not have information about what to do (make sure you have your guidebook) or about accessiblity of Etna on a given day. The staff was courteous. It was as expected from information on the website.
