Having never visited Italy, we were looking for some last minute sun in October before winter set in. The short flight, easy transfers from airport and mild climate made our mind up, we were heading to sicily and the hotel Splendid, with its rooftop pool being the selling point. Rooms were basic, but clean. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The... More

Stayed in a seaview room, which was very nice and clean, and a decent size. Beautiful views of the coast are offered from the room, as well as the pool area and terrace. The best part of the hotel is the staff. All of the employees (front desk, housekeeping, bartenders, and servers) are helpful and incredibly nice. The pool area... More

We stayed three nights and four days. Centrally located helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance or it's a matter of hoping on to a "hop on and off bus". A good breakfast was served. A pool is there though we did not have much time to relax there as we were busy with the excursion. Pleasant stay clean linen and... More

We were a family of four looking for a suitable place to stay in Taormina which was suitably located but not too expensive. This hotel fitted the bill exactly. It is literally only five minutes walk away from a great variety of restaurants and shops - and probably 10 minutes from the bus station from where you can get wherever... More

This hotel is in a great position being an easy walk into the centre of Taormina. Our biggest gripe with this hotel is that our room was right by the pool. Initially we thought great as all was quiet. However, we went out and came back about 6pm to be greeted by loud thumping dance music. We went out about... More

This place is very good. Yes its not prestige, but you should know that before you book it. But what it does, it does well. The location is brilliant, a short walk to Corso Umberto and its even possible to walk to the bus station. The hotel isn't contemporary but our bathroom was pretty modern so that was a nice... More

The hotel is ideally located, near the bus station and shopping street. The room consisted of the sounds from the street and neighboring rooms. Airconditioning and refrigerator cost separatery. Swimming pool area was small but nice. Wifi kept dropping. The breakfast was moderate, no vegetables or fruits.

After a meandering walk from the bus terminal and a few mis steps trying to find it, we discovered the hotel just around the corner from the vibrant town centre.
