    The location was perfect. Both proximity to Corso Umberto as well as the increadible view from the rooms and especially from the pool area.

    The staff were substandard for a 4 star hotel. They were not rude however were not skilled in customer service. The hotel itself was extremely run down and likly not a penny had gone into it for some time with the pool area being particularly dangerous including metal rusty spikes where vases used to be and an overflow with colapsed under me when I stood on it. The path down to the pool area was dirty and unmaintained. the bedrooms were functional and clean however the bathrooms were tiny and needed rennovating.

    Vista stupenda. Camera microscopica. Staff inclassificabile. Il più lungo check-out della mia vita.

    Fabulous

    Centralt beläget och underbara vyer från hotellrummet. Rent och prydligt om än i äldre stil. En bra frukost och servicevillig personal!

    Sängarna! De var litet hårda och kändes av efter 5 nätters boende.

    Ein schönes Hotel mit alter Einrichtung, tolle Lage mit einem traumhaften Blick auf das Meer und Ätna.

    Veraltert, Fitnessraum nicht in Betrieb, hat keine 4 Sterne verdient höchstens 2-3

    Superb

    Un hôtel incroyable. On se croirait dans un vieux film italien. C'est un établissement avec une âme comme on en trouve peu dans la région. Certains trouveront peut être ça un peu vieillot, mais justement, ce qui est touchant dans ce lieu, c'est que rien n'a bougé... La piscine est sublime! L'accueil est très chaleureux, le personnel très attentionné.

    Lage ist hervorragend - super schöne Aussicht, extrem ruhig und sehr nahe an dem Zentrum von Taormina

    Zimmer sind extrem klein für ein 4-Sterne Hotel, Möbel ist alt und nicht in besonder gutem Zustand, ärmliches Frühstück

    Very good

    Localisation impeccable dans Taormina et point de vue exceptionnel sur la baie. Charme du bâtiment, très typique. Mobilier très beau, cadre extraordinaire.

    Entretien des zones extérieures pouvant être amélioré : court de tennis inutilisable (mousse), plantes envahissant les chemins d'accès à la piscine, sols non balayé. Horaire du petit déjeuner non respecté le matin (problématique en cas d'impératifs d'avion notamment).
