  • 8.0.Very good

    The view was beautiful and the breakfast was excellent. Parking is very limited and the A/C in my room blew warm air even when I turned the thermostat down. I realize it may be a seasonal issue since it's November, but I was essentially on a ground floor and therefore couldn't leave my patio door open to cool the room.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Hotel was great, nice large rooms and free champagne was a nice touch. The piano player in the bar, Giovanni, was excellent and fun to listen to. Huge breakfast. Very helpful with luggage. The only thing off was that the glass cups in our rooms were dirty, and not replaced from the previous guests. But otherwise very clean. We would love to come back.

    This is fine 4 star hotel in a very central location in Taormina next to the bus station and a short walk to the main streets. The facilities are in good shape and the staff are generally quite helpful. We would particularly recommend the half board as the evening meals were very well done. Our room was quite small and the shower needed to be renovated, the plumbing is also quite loud. Overall we would recommend.
