    A beautiful hotel in an exceptional location. Well worth pushing your budget to experience at least one night here - you won't be disappointed. The staff are very friendly and offered us a free upgrade so that we made the most of our one night stay. I would have loved to have stayed longer.

    Only positive comments to offer!

    Enchanting building and environment.

    My booking confirmation specifically stated that we'd get a room with a garden and see view in the old wing. Even though we asked for it we got a room in the new wing with view of the sea and a construction site. Two of the restaurants and the pool area were closed and this was not indicated in the hotel informantion. Restaurant staff not particularly helpful.

    The location of the hotel was the best. Also, the view from our room was spectacular.

    The hotel need some updating, I.E., carpeting is tired as well as the furniture.

    The view from our room was one of the most beautiful we have had.The breakfast was very good , the decor was very interesting . The pianoist at night was lovely after dinner. This is not really suitable for children. The prices of the beverages are over the top but if money is not a problem then this hotel is a must for you. The main shopping street is only 5 minutes from the hotel and it has everyshop. Woman could want. The shower in our standard double room was not 5 star. It was expensive for us but worth the experience. It had a 6 star ambience and was lovely to work around. I think this is the most beautiful hotel in Taoromina and we will possibly return , we met a couple who had returned 5 times so this says something. I do not think you will be disappointed although you will be a few Euro less,

    The shower in our superior double was not 5 star the drink prices are high 16 euro for a double gin , the bathroom was a smelly but we were wrong in not complaining , we may have been moved. There is not a lift but there was only one floor so unless you are disabled not a problem.

    Historic place. Central location. View.

    Prices for amenities out of consideration. Seems out of time,specificaly swiming pool. .

  • Older travelers

    Excellent breakfast included. Historic feel of the buildings - excellent ambience. Helpful staff.

    A "superior" double room was quite small

    Centrally located within Taormina, a short walk onto the main street.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Good location, spacious rooms, charming

    Staff very haughty, can't eliminate sewerage smell, rooms can be dark

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Gorgeous historical hotel with amazing views, convenient location and highly professional staff. Gardens are the most beautiful in the city and a visit through the grounds is a destination in itsellf. Beautiful restaurants and bars.

    No sound proofing, we could hear our neighbors and restaurant sounds in the morning. Surprisingly stingy in providing Internet services to guests, charges even in common areas unlike any of the other luxury properties we stayed in during our trip in Sicily.
