Location; friendly and knowledgeable staff
Towels were rough; room a/c unit did not cool the entire room;
It is near the city centre in a quiet street and the staff is very friendly.
The building is a little old but correct.
The location is excelent, very close to the city center.
The bathroom was dirty, specially the curtain. The hotel offers a 120€ shuttle to the Airport, but a taxi will cost 100€ and the bus just 7.50€. Contrary to the pictures, the breakfast area does not have any views. If you are unlucky, like myself, your room may face a wall. The breakfast is very basic. The bread was hard, there is no fruit, no cereals, and every day there is the same red drink that did not taste like real juice. The internet does not work in the room most of the time. For this price, I think there should be better options in Taormina.
The proprietor and his wife were extremely welcoming and friendly over a two week stay. The breakfasts were substantial for a continental breakfast and the room was very comfortable and clean. We would definitely recommend this hotel for an enjoyable stay,excellent value and a convenient location off the main street - the Corso.
