The Pensione Svizzera is really a classy hotel. The staff were very helpful with our luggage and directions to restaurants and local sites. They have a nice little bar inside for the needed nightcap after a long day of travels and site seeing. Parking if available just down the street.

Pensione Svizzera is located just outside the historical center. It offers a beautiful view over the straight of Messina. The historical points are easy reached by foot. The breakfast is excellent and the staff was very helpful. In case you arrive by car, reserve a parking space of the hotel ( EUR 15.- per day as parking in Taormina is...

This small hotel in Taormina is just outside the gates of the old city, and near to the bus station and the cable car that takes you to the beach. It is an attractive place, with a garden and a breakfast room that has wonderful views over the coast. The room we stayed in was pretty small and although there...

A well located little hotel a few minutes walk from the town centre. The staff are really lovely and helpful. The breakfast had everything you could wish for and the room overlooked the sea. Our bedroom / bathroom were simply decorated and very clean. Reviewers have mentioned the noise from water pipes etc. Yes it is a little noisy but...

We stayed two nights in room #14. The room was small but clean and had a window which had a great sea view. The windows had no screens and there is no elevator, so be warned. The room had a great air conditioner and the staff was efficient. Breakfast was good and had a variety of American and European foods....

We spent 4 nights in Taormina arriving by Train from Syracuse. We caught a Taxi to the hotel which we shared with another - cost us E15. I noted the large bus terminal is just down the road. Taormina is on a steep cliff - so fortunately this hotel is located just away from the main entrance to the town,...

We found Taormina itself crowded and expensive, but the Pensione Svizzera made a very civilised and inviting retreat. It is quiet and elegant and all rooms have stunning views of the coast. They all have private balconies but ours also had a private terrace area with a breath-taking view. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and complimentary afternoon tea...

We had a nice room -I thought we had booked an attic room with a seaview but was pleased we were on the first floor as there is no lift and I had to take the suitcases up myself !We could still see a bit of the sea though.The room was comfortable but it could definitely do with a fridge...

This is my go to hotel when I visit Taormina. What makes this hotel good is the fact that it's family run. Rooms are spacious and are always very clean. Views from the "rooms with view" are just breathtaking. The staff are always helpful and are amongst the few that speak English. Finally the breakfast is very good and is...
