We found this hotel was very good and well located. Apart from the Hotel Isabella directly located in the town centre on Corso Umberto, it may be the best located mid-range hotel in Taormina. It is just below the Greek Theatre although to access the latter you have to climb up to the town centre first. The small bus station...

We were moved to this hotel after our Top to Toe of Italy tour with no explanation (well, we will get one) and it didn't disappoint at all. It was right in the middle of Taormina (well 5 minutes walk which is nothing), very quiet with spectacular views. Very clean and friendly staff. The food was excellent - a very...

We returned from this beautiful hotel yesterday and have decided this is one of the best hotels for service, cleanliness and position we have been to in a long time. I loved everything about it, although the pool was too deep for my confident swim across. We watched others and it looked really beautiful. We both had been to Taormina...

We stayed at the Ariston hotel for two nights, last weekend, apart from being a very nice and clean hotel with vast gardens it is not in the center, therefore price was cheap compared to other hotels, it is however a 5 minute walk to the Arco di Messina, so if you don't mind walking while taking in the breathtaking...

We spent a week at this lovely hotel. It is next to the bus station (all excursions start and end here and there is a good service to other towns); and is a 5 - 10 min walk from the town - you have a choice of 2 very nice routes into town, one through the communal gardens. The staff...

This was a pleasant hotel in many ways. It was conveniently located near the bus station - useful as many trips had a 7am start. It was possible to walk easily to either end of town - up to the Messina gate or down a little and then across to Piazza IX Aprile. The latter route also led to the...

We recently spent a week in this hotel in Taormina. Our room had a sea view and a small balcony. The sea view was stunning. The hotel was spotless. Bathrobes are available but have to be asked for. Despite paying for wifi, this was only available in public areas, with no in room access. Staff were very friendly and helpful....
