Very helpful and courteous. They went out of their way to make our stay special. The whole atmosphere of the hotel was historic and genuine. A very relaxing and enjoyable time
All ok No complaints
The location is outstanding. Very near the main tourist thoroughfare but in a quiet spot on a side street. The hotel is a beautiful building and clearly had a lot of money spent updating the interiors. The views out to sea and of Mount Etna are spectacular. It also has a decent car park; must be unique in Taormina. There is a superb pool and also a very nice tennis court. Breakfast was very good.
Everything outside the hotel needs maintenance which gives the place an uncared for feeling; the lift to the pool (on a terrace some 30m below the hotel) doesn't look like it's worked in a long time - the lift car is no longer there! The lift in the hotel was also out of order - not a problem to us but it's 3 storeys up or down from the lobby (on a cliff so 6 storeys in total), gardens (which were beautiful when we last stayed there 24 years ago) have not been tended in a long time; quite a jungle treck down to the tennis court
Super Location and great views from the hotel. Lovely old baroque hotel - this was part of the problem ! Daisy at Reception was supreb and tried her best to solve issues we had.
This is not a 4 star hotel - Facilities and hotel in general in need to refurbishment and rejuvenation. Staff we minimal and service was not what I expected - not value for money. We did get upgrade (booking.com on line spec was for junior suite - with details from a full suite). The room was therefore too small when we arrived - Daisy to secure an update to Full suite (after 3 days) but experience lets a bitter taste. I am not sure what the plans are for the hole - this old lady needs work and more attention to detail - could be a jewel at some point in years
Lovely staff and fabulous location
