“Lovely apartment in great location.”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Giovanni met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment and gave us details of the local area, which was really helpful. The apartment is exactly as pictured, had a really cozy Italian feel to it. There was everything we needed in the apartment and it was very close by to town centre, cable car, bus and taxi depot. We had a 16 month old baby with us and a cot and high chair were provided. We really enjoyed our stay here, particularly enjoyed the large terrace outside. If travelling with small children or anyone with mobility problems there are a lot of steps down to the apartment, we knew this in advance but it did get tiring getting the pushchair up and down the steps at least twice per day.

“Lovely apartment, well placed”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

La Guardiola is a lovely apartment. It's very clean, centrally located and extremely comfortable with everything you need ( except wifi!) Giovanni was very helpful and informative. He picked us up from the bus station and drove us to the apartment, telling us about Taormina on the way.
Only two minor problems. No wifi, but almost all of the cafés have it, so we managed okay. There were some noisy neighbours ( very loud talking and shouting) in one or two of the surrounding apartments, which was a bit annoying but at least stopped by midnight, so our sleep wasn't affected.
Taormina is beautiful, as is Giovanni's apartment.

“lovely quiet apartment close to the centre”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in this lovely quiet apartment just a short walk from all the action in the centre of town but also close to the (many) steps down to the seafront and the cablecar. Giovanni was very helpful on our arrival and the apartment had everything we needed. The only down side for us was that the balcony is in shade for most of the day. I am sure that this would be a relief in the heat of summer but as sun starved brits visiting in April it was a shame. Nevertheless would thoroughly recommend staying here.

“The apartment is as promised with great views.”

This apartment is as promised. There were two couples, all over 60, and we were very comfortable. The location was great for walking in Taormina and having secure parking made our day trips away easy. As someone mentioned, to walk away from the apartment, there are a lot of stairs. We thought of it as an involuntary fitness program. If you are looking via Google maps, as we did, it is located right below, and part of the Ashbee Hotel. The view is a grand panorama os sea and land. Overall a very positive experience.

Liked best: That it was as promised.
Liked least: We waited at the meeting place for 1/2 hr and I thought it was going to be a disaster. Stressfull, but that would be my only complaint.
