We spent only one night but this is a great place to stay. It's located in the centre but also pretty quiet and relaxed. The breakfast was excellent and Giusy the friendy hostess even send my phone charger back witch I forgot. Brilliant service!

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and found it very positive. The location of the hotel is excellent (approximately 15 metres from Piazza Duomo) and the breakfast offered is also very abundant. Special mention should go to the owner of the hotel (Signora Giusi) for her kindness and always ready to help and make her customers feel at...

We stayed here for 4 nights and were delighted with the B&B! The location is brilliant, just off one end of the main street but quiet at night. We walked from the bus station which was about 20mins or so with bags down the main Corso Umberto street. We loved our room which was really uniquely decorated with a private...

This is a really pleasant, friendly hotel to stay in. The easiest way to get here from the bus station with your bags is to walk all the way along corso until you reach the duomo square with the fountain, then bear right up the steps towards the bars/ restaurants. Our room was nicely air conditioned and full of antique/kitsch...

A lovely quaint B&B in the heart of the town, yet close the shutters to your balcony overlooking the sea and town and your room will be quiet and peaceful. The private garden is lovely for breakfast. Hospitality was very good. The hotel is full of bric a brac and interesting things; it has a quite old fashioned feel to...

Villa Gaia is a delightful place to stay in Taormina. It is a short walk to the Via Corso Umberto. Continental breakfast is served in their private garden. Josephine is a wonderful hostess who provided recommendations and arranged bookings for a couple excursions. Our family of three stayed in the quad suite affording a nice view of the sea and...

Brilliant central point for Taormina, just a few yards/steps above the town's central fountain and Duomo. Really helpful staff, with a hands-off and relaxed demeanour. Rooms are simple, calm and clean. The decor is a low-key retro boutique-ish approach, and we enjoyed it immensely. Our room had a cracking view of snowy Etna from a warm and sunny balcony. Breakfast...
