  • 2.0.Poor

    Avoid this place!!! They turn off AC in hotel from 11am-3pm, during hottest hrs of the day, then from 2am-6am when you trying to get sleep. They claim this was stared “in your contract”. Front desk staff are indifferent to issues, manager is nowhere to be found.

    This hotel is situated above the prettiest square in Taormina, and the views from the rooms overlook the sea. The architecture and art are wonderful.

    Excellent Location in Taormina

    Hotel Vello D'Oro is a charming older hotel with whimsical architectural touches, filled with unique artwork, right in the centre of Taormina. It is easy walking distance to numerous restaurants, shopping and historical sites. While the hotel should update its windows for sound insulation and energy efficiency, our room was clean, had a comfortable bed and the view from our balcony down to the town square, the sea and Etna were wonderful. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The scenic path to the church in the rock begins nearby and we also walked to the outstanding ancient theatre and wonderful Castelmola from the hotel. There is no need to move your car during your stay to see everything Taormina has to offer. If you are wanting to park at the hotel, reserve ahead for one of the few parking spaces and be prepared to squeeze your car into a tight spot after backing down a narrow one way street the wrong way. Better to park in the parking garage Porto Catania, take the garage elevator to the street level and walk to the hotel. Be prepared to lug your suitcase up steps within the town. This situation is not unique to this hotel in Taormina. All in all, we completely enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend this hotel.

    Wonderful stay

    The hotel was very beautiful and easy to find. It's right in the center of town so you're close to everything. My room had a beautiful terrace with a great view of the sea. They provide options to the beach which is nice because it is far . I didn't use it but can be convenient. I would definitely stay here again
