Having stayed in Taormina last year, we were extremely disappointed with this hotel. we had a room located to the side of the reception on the ground floor, facing the steps to the entrance, so no privacy in the bathroom! The room was extremely basic, and did nothing to enhance a visit to such a beautiful town. The views from the terrace where breakfast is taken are good, and there are rooms above there with their own terraces, so we probably got the "duff" one!. Extremely small and basic...would not go back again!!
