“hidden gem”
Reviewed 7 April 2008

This hidden gem is worth searching for! Our resort manager booked us this hotel during our overnight in Taormina, but we were more than happy with the accomodations. The room came with 3 beds, TV, A/C, and a wardrobe (We paid an equivalent of $75). There was a shared bathroom but since it was off season, we had the whole wing to ourselves. Good water pressure in the shower with a skylight in the bathroom. Very clean. The balcony looked right out into the ocean. Breakfast was included and had an assortment of pastries and breads with coffee and juice. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially with directions around the hills of Taormina.

  • Liked — The awesome view...ask for a room that faces the ocean
  • Disliked — Shared bathroom...but that's very European

very pleasant find- website does not do it justice.
Fantastic views from a large common balcony over looking bay and Mt Etna, hotel surrounded by very expensive exclusive hotels and across the road from the beautiful gardens, short walk to the main streets of Taormina and other attractions. The staff where extremely helpful
Balcony perfect for sharing a bottle of wine and picnic dinner watching the sunset and enjoying the warm summer evening with new found friends.
Excellent value for money- recommend

We stayed for 2 nites over New Years. A 2 star hotel so we didn't have great expectations. An aged hotel, noisy but in the end everything worked. If you are a needy and picky person stay clear of this hotel. (only likewarm water, bed mattresses were well worn, creaky doors, only local TV)
Has a balcony with an impressive view of the bay and Etna. Can't beat it. About a 10 min walk to the town center. Has reduced parking rates Euros 7 (10 min walk to car park or free shutlle bus from car park to town center)

Reviewed 10 September 2005

The hotel is quite a trek from the train station. Don't even try to walk because everthing is uphill. The hotel is charming, in it's own way. The decor is very tacky Italian 1970's. It looks much better on the website than in person.The rooms are a reasonable size. We had a room with a huge balcony and a breathtaking view. It made you forget about the tacky decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's close to a lot of great restaurants. They say the beeach is 10 mins away. Lies!!! It's about a 30 min walk.
