Grazie per la recensione, ma Giuseppe non è mai stato il proprietario del Residence Circe, era solo il receptionist.

The hotel is in a fabulous location right in the middle of the main street in Taormina. All bars and shops are close by and the bus station is just a few minutes walk away. Giuseppe the director is extremely helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Other reviews have criticised the breakfast at Licchios bar but we...

Stayed for 4 nights and we were more than happy with this place. The location is as good as it gets, right in the middle of Corso Umberto I. Giuseppe made sure the service was perfect, and gave all the "turist info" needed with a smile (without being pushy). One of the best "value for the money" yet. Can gladly...

Instantly felt at home in this centrally located residence. Close to all the action in the heart of town and equipped with free wifi and all the essentials. The real highlight however is the five star service with a smile that we were constantly greeted with. Would definitely choose this place again :-)

welcoming staff rooms are OK, spacious. the breakfast is served at the bar next door, which turns to be quite light compared to all the BnBs we have visited in Sicily. Location, however, is excellent, in the center of walking Taormina. For the car, you'd better park down the village (12€ a day i might remember) and go back to...

Good hotel having a great location which makes up for somewhat spartan looking rooms. Rooms were clean as so was the bathroom. Only complaint really is that bathroom was too small. Otherwise would recommed the hotel to anyone. Guiseppe kept waiting for our group even though we arrived at 9pm. Busy street did not bother us at all. The only...

We were delighted and surprised to find the location of this wonderful hotel was smack bang in the centre of town. The room had a shared outdoor verandah which was huge. The furnishings in the room were wonderful and modern....and there was more than enough space to move around in. Unfortunately breakfast was a voucher to be redeemed at a...

This place is perfect if you like Italy and a lot of people! Guiseppe is very nice and has the best B&B in taormina. We stayed here 9 nights and would have loved to be a month more. Perfect that Circe has a transfer by a minibus to a Beach, so Beach in the day time and restaurants and walks...

Have to agree with previous reviews. The apartments are very centrally located, well equipped and maintained. Giuseppe is a pleasure to deal with and has a smile for everyone. We were at the heart of all the action but we were not disturbed by any noise on this busy street. Would highly recommend staying here.

A big big thank you to the receptionist of this hotel. Made our stay comfortable and easy and accomodated us in all our needs. Room was as expected for such a price in the middle of Taormina. Excellent location, and cleanliness. Rooms were clean, no sound pollution and thumbs up to Giuseppe.

“Ask for a room with a terrace. Some of the rooms have a locked kitchen area which you pay extra for if you want to use it.”

“The main street is very busy until late at night. Our room was at the back and was very quiet but I imagine that rooms at the front may be noisy. Having said that, if you are out until quite late like most people tend to be in Taormina it wouldn't be a problem.”
