Sleepless in Sicily
View is amazing, but I had a terrible night's sleep. There is no air conditioning in the rooms - which in Sicily in th summer means a sleepless night. The doors open on to the balcony with an amazing view, which I had to keep open throughout the night. This means that you can hear everything from the other rooms. It also means Mosquitos swarm onto the room, meaning that you have the choice of closing the doors and cooking to death, or opening them and being eaten alive - the choice is yours. I also asked for an iron so I could wear a nice shirt on my birthday. They said they didn't provide this service for 'safety reasons' (it seemed like I'd gone and asked to use a flamethrower to get rid of the creases in my shirt). So instead I had to turn the shower on hot and leave my shirt in a makeshift steam room and waste 15 minutes worth of water, but at least I was safe from a potential iron apocalypse. I can't fault the staff - they were friendly, but the hotel is lacking so much. It needs to be refurbished, or at the very least have fans provided in the room. You should also bring some ropes and climbing equipment, as you need to scale a small mountain to get to the town - but great views and exercise!

The hotel has a lovely view overlooking Taormina. It's quite a hike from the centre so you'll have to use the local bus to get to places.
