Excellent4.0 / 5
Hotel straight out of a time capsule.
I think I read this somewhere when I was booking the hotel, but it really does make you feel like the Grand Budapest Hotel. Like this was once a really fancy hotel that hasn't changed in 60 years. Complete with fancy rugs, decorations, paintings, and antique looking additions that remind me of my grandma's house. Best part of the room is easily the balcony with the amazing view of the sea and of Mt. Etna. Worth the price of the room alone, and it was actually still pretty affordable. No in room wifi and no hot water were rough, but bonus points for a stellar free breakfast.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Just Amazing
This place is just the best. The Hotel is probably one of my favorite establishment I had the chance to visit. The price is reasonable and the place is like a old French castle museum. It is just freaking beautiful. The hotel owner is on site and very kind. There is an awesome pool and everything is awesome. Try it

Fair2.0 / 5
Great Location, Poor Hotel
Let's start with the fact that you cannot beat the view or the location. The hotel is perfectly located for moving easily into and out of Taormina city center. This is where the good news ends. The breakfast buffet is not as advertised (only on the weekends), the pool was green and full of leaves, the tennis court was tired and in need of repair, the air conditioning broke twice, the water stopped running twice and the toilet broke and had to be repaired, fortunately it was fixed while we were out sightseeing. Light fixtures with 5 - 6 bulb sockets had two or three bulbs in them, internet is only available in the lobby and lastly, the elevator was under maintenance when we needed to bring all of our bags down from the 4th floor. Pass on this place.

Great value in a lovely place
I was on the lowest floor, which smells a bit, but the room was fine with a lovely balcony and great view. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, location is terrific, town is gorgeous. I'd go back for sure.

Great location for a good price
I stayed in a different room this night than previously and this one was on the 4th floor and way nicer than the ones on the lowest floor. The view was even more magnificent, and the room was nicer (though I had a bigger balcony on the lower floor, this one was big enough). Again, very nice breakfast.
