About the location
Holidays in Taormina marry history and culture to form an unforgettable experience in Italy
. It’s perched at the top of Monte Tauro in the foothills of Mount Etna on Sicily’s Eastern coastline, between the cities of Catania and Messina. This ancient town offers visitors a view into the past with a number of elegantly preserved historic treasures, from the grand Greek-Roman Theatre to the equally impressive Palazzo Corvaja, which are just waiting to be discovered.
You don’t have to be a history buff to make the most of everything Taormina has to offer. Alongside the historical sights there are plenty of other attractions to take in. The main street, Corso Umberto, is traffic free and home to an array of shops and restaurants to rival any in the bigger cities.
There are also plenty of seaside activities to dive into thanks to the town’s coastal setting. Adventurous travellers can try watersports like wind surfing and snorkelling, while relaxing scenic boat tours around the gorgeous capes and grottos of the Ionian Sea allow you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, simply spend long tranquil days on sun soaked shingle beaches.
The hotel is 1 hour from Catania airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

With many reviews stated the hotel is not currently renovated and a little out dated but I love the charm of the Italian accents which I feel make it unique. If you are looking for a modern, exquisite hotel this is not it. But, If you are looking for a hotel that has incredible staff, unremarkable views, included breakfast, included aperitivo and a fitness center with it being very close to the city center, then this is for you. My husband and I really enjoy this hotel and feel it is pleasantly peaceful and relaxing. This property is closer to the city center rather than close to the beaches.

I was debating whether to give this hotel 2 or 3 stars. I decided on 3 stars because the hotel has great views. The 2 star part is because everything is dated and unkept. The carpets in the hallways and stairs are ripped and dirty. The breakfast buffet is poor. We had a jr. suite, with corner views that was amazing. The room was very outdated and dirty. My son, who slept on a roll out bed in the living room area was sneezing with itchy eyes when he would sit in the old chairs. The area rug had not been vacuumed in a long time and was not vacuumed even once during our 4 night stay. The bathroom was very old and the shower leaked water onto the floor creating a flood. When I mentioned this to housekeeping, they gave me extra towels to collect the water.
My sister and brother in law had a regular room on a lower floor that had been renovated, small, but more functional.
I did not request a room change because I felt the entire building was unkept.
We attended a wedding at this hotel and the food was excellent, the service a little understaffed.
