The concierge was extremely helpful, and a lovely and informative person. The hotel itself is a gorgeous structure. the bathrooms probably need a newer renovation, but they are clean and functional.

First off, the television was not working, and then the air conditioner was not working. They lied and told us it had to be regulated, then we find out that they turn off the air conditioner for the whole hotel during the hours of 1 through 5. But our room was still hot, hot, hot. Could not open the windows because of the mosquitos, so we got a fan. It was miserable and I would not stay there again. A lot of people were complaining about the same issue, so it was not just our room. So sad, for such a beautiful setting.

Room is old style but well managed.
Room is little out dated. Hard to find electric socket. Light was little dim. Well cleaned. Breakfast was very good. I ask for parking and it was well handled. (with fee) Sea view was not that panoramic and you need luck for the weather to see Mt Etna. Our room was Mt view but could not see it because of the rain. Located at the entrance of Taormina. You need to walk to around 15 min to get The Greek theater. Bar is very good to have coffee during the day time. Staff was very kind and attentive.
