24 hr reception, free parking & wifi, very good breakfast prepared freshly daily, & the room was modern and well cleaned, few minutes from restaurants, though we used our car to move to the center and shopping.

The staff were friendly. Room is basic but sufficient. Air conditioning in the room felt like it was barely working. Breakfast was fine. Location is very poor..about a 40min walk to town centre. Noisy people staying there but that's outside of the hotels control. It's like a nice hostel more so than a hotel.

Basic room but spacious for 2adults and 2children. Good location if you want to visit Mount Etna and Taormina. Breakfast was good, consisting of bread and a choice of hot beverages and cereals and juice, even yoghurt and fruit! We could also order take away pizza and get room service! Will definitely go again.

Just been to this hotel and we were very satisfied. Rooms were clean.breakfast was good. Always found a parking space for our cars.I would recommend this hotel even for the view itself because one can see the mount Etna. One thing that was a bit strange was the hand basin because it was in the shower but overall I would... More

Firstly I would like to say if there was a separate rating for the staff, they would get 5 stars! The hotel was fine for the price but you need a car as the hotel is located in a residential area with very little nearby within walking distance. Failing that you need to be confident to use the buses, as... More

A nice and affordable hotel including a continental breakfast each morning. Friendly and welcoming staff, free praking, free wifi, quite central, clean and overall a pleasant experience. Our room had seaview and was quite. Nothing to complain about truly great value for money. Especially the inclusive breakfast. Great stay :)

I picked this place as I was driving and wanted somewhere with a car park and easy access to the airport while still being close to town. It fitted the bill perfectly. To get downtown there are local buses but as it was a sunday I drove down to look around - beautiful architecture. The staff were very helpful. The... More

We stayed here at the end of October. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the room was huge, fresh towels every day, clean bedding, breakfast was good, plenty of choice.. The staff cannot do enough to help.. Even free on site parking... If you ever need a hotel to explore Sicily you can't go far wrong here. If any negatives could... More
