    The location was excellent. Great views of Mt. Aetna as well as the sea and hillside castles.

    The food available at dinner.

    Fantastic views from the terrace/pool

    Rooms were quite outdated, and smelt very strongly of smoke, quite a hike getting down and especially coming back up to the hotel from the centre of Taormina.

    Location simply perfect

    Breakfast - horrible, food, even bread was old, pool closed at evenings, bar never works due to short of staff probably, rooms really need some restauration

    Excellent views from both pool and room terrace with the pleasant opportunity to have breakfast by the pool overlooking expansive view to Mount Etna. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    Remote location to the centre of Taormina but got fit walking up and down 540 steps into centre. Pool was only open at 9:00am till 6:00pm. Room was very small.

    The hotel is beautifully situated up high on the hills of Taormina. Good bus connections which cost nearly nothing but also a fantastic stair case all the way down to the city centre. Good little pool area without sun bathing chairs but with connection to the bar. Helpful staff.

    Extremely thin-walled and noisy in the mornings. Every morning the cleaners would walk through the corridors, speaking real loud to wach other, smashing the vacuumers into the doors and finally bang our door whereupon we had to shout no... I also had quite an unusual experience at the bar when having to explain to the 'bartender' whats in a cuba libre and choose the bottle myself from the shelf...hmm

    it has a swimmingpool which is nice as the hotel is on a hilltop ie. not easy access to the beach below Taormina. the drinks at the bar are quite cheap (i liked Capuccino freddo).There is a bus stop in from of the hotel so you can easily get to the old city centre of Toarmina as the hotel itself is in Castelmola not in Taormina. tha staff is helpfull

    the Hotel is not a 3 star hotel, toilet installations are quite old and the room decoration. we got a room with a window on a wall so it was dark in the room and it was impossible to change for a room with a view even on the back side, but not with a wall view, though there are nicer free rooms with a view. that was quite dissapointing. the breakfast is quite poor and you have to pay extra 7,5. But up there there are no other places to eat breakfast so you need to eat there. 20 minutes of internet costs 4 euros.not easy topark the car on the streets nearby as its steep, though the hotel can offer a car park for 5 euros a day.

    The hotel was not in ther town centre,it was quiet even though the hotel was full.

    The doors die nt have a silent locking system.They were banging when used.They need to be replaced.I did not eat in the hotel unfortunately other guests who did were not happy with the meals.

    Very good

    The fact that there was a private parking lot because the road is so small that 2 cars from opposite directions can't pass each other. The hotel is high up in the mountains on a winding and steep road so best arrive there before darkness falls.The receptionists and the waiter were very friendly and coöperative.There is a nice swimming pool. The view over Taormina is fantastic! Great hotel for people who like to hike.

    There was a stale odour in the corridor. The room itself was old fashioned, but with a magnificent view.People arriving after 23 h and other peple leaving at 5 and 6 in the morning made a terrible lot of noise : arguing, yelling... We think the reception should ask the hotel guests to be more quiet between 23 h and 7h or they should put up a sign in the hotel lobby.The hotel is halfway between Taormina and the village in the mountains which has another name which I can't remember right now.The hotel management should also mention the name of the little village in their address as they are officially situated there and not in Taormina. At a certain point the road divides between Taormina and the mountain village and we took the wrong road for Taormina because the address doesn't mention the village. There were no prices on the menu on display in the dining room.

    The view was amazing, the staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for you, the pool was amazing.

    The room was very small, no balcony, and very noisey at all hours of the morning between people staying there and the cleaning staff starting at 6.30am.

    The hotel is a bit far away from the centre but the view is amazing. The hotel staff was helpful and parking was also available.

    The bathroom needs to be changed. The tiles and shower cubicle are old.

    Superb

    Everthing at the Hotel was very very good. The Room-Service has made an excellent job - everthing was very clean and freshed up every day. The excellent Staff at the Reception were very friendly and very helpful in everthing, the Barman was excellent and funny and made great job. The breakfast was good and nothing ever empties - everything was filled up directly befofre it went out.The view was extraordinary - from our balcony we could see the pool, the mediteranian sea and Mount Etna - just spectecluar! For us one of the best Hotels we've ever been and a big reason for this was the excellent service!!! A reason for us to come back!!!

    The wiev.

    The guy from the reception never said hello, the room was very small ,no refrigirater and had to pay 15 Euros as a deposit to get the remote for the Tv.They were afraid that I will still the remote control.lol .The hotel is full of signs that shows that you are not alowed to do this or that .... It was horrible, I am realy sorry to say that . It is one hour at least on foot from the city center or 20 min by car.

    I have never seen before so friendly staff! Everybody was kind and helpful. The best personal ever! Also the the rooms were very clean, almost no noising. The view our room was amazing - sea and Etna. It was a pleasure to stay in this hotel.

    The only thing that could scary tourists is that the hotel is far from the beach. the 500 step stairs us really difficult for coming, but not impossible and it's an experience :) So if you have a car it will not be a problem for you.
