Very modern and stylish hotel, nice location, in walking distance to pedestrian zone Very small rooms
The staff were very helpful and friendly The food was very expensive. "Ceasar's Salad" comprising Lettuce ,sauce and a few croutons was €17.A very high standard of food was available in any of the restaurants locally for half the price. The Hotel lacked athmosphere as there were only a handful of people staying there the week we were there.
Very comfortable, delightful staff, close to shops and sights. I am returning for a night at the end of the month. I liked everything
Chic hotel with very friendly staff ( something that Italian/Scilian hotel staff are not noted for ) Nothing was too much trouble, not only for us but for all guests some of which were very demanding.
Well-designed boutique hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant is an undiscovered jewel. Self-parking facility is non-existent at the hotel. Parking in the garage is expensive.
Superb hotel overall .Great location .Spotlessly clean. Very friendly and helpful staff, Great breakfast freshly cooked to your requirements.. Size of the balconies.
Everything We called the hotel for directions from the road. Had they told us that they were the only modern looking hotel on the mountain , right after you pass through the main square and that it had a glass front on the right not the left we would have saved over an hour trying to find the place.
Beautiful, tastefully appointed hotel. Ultra modern accommodations in a Sicillian village that blossoms with antiquity. The restaurant is fine, but visitors are in the center of a town where one cannot find a bad meal; only, as Rick Steves phrases it, better.
The hotel is brand new. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is really helpful. If one arrives by car, it is advisable to book a parking place in advance.
Great staff, relaxing pool, area lovely breakfast & dining area easy walk to the centre None
The views were breathtaking and the staff were lovely. Couldnt do enough. Bedrooms a little dated Could upgrade the rooms in keeping with the stunning location
Great hotel with beautiful landscaping and pool setting. Staff were very friendly and effiicient and took care of the parking for us. Wonderful breakfast...one of the best on our 3 week trip thru out Sicily. Booked the standard room but would highly recommend upgrading to one with a terrace and balcony (worth the extra euros). I loved this hotel!!! Standard room a little dated compared to the rest of the hotel which was marvelous.
The most beautiful view ever, poolside fabulous, great service, and helpful staff. Walking distance to sites and shopping. Hope to return. Request ocean view and terrace. Great food (breakfast and lunch til 4 pm poolside). Parking available and assisted by staff.
Very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wonderful views and fabulous gardens. Good location 5 mins walk to town centre.
The staff were polite and the breakfast was pretty decent. The views from the hotel of Etna and the sea were stunning. This should not be a four star hotel. We paid extra for a 'suite' but arrived to find a small room with a large balcony with a glass ceiling (sun bathing in a green house) - very basic (no mini bar, sky sport TV etc..) The website states beach & pool facilities are at the "Paradise Beach Club in Letojanni at about 10 minutes distance from the hotel". This is a lie. The beach is about 25 minutes by car alone!! If you dont drive then you can get the free hotel minibus. We did this three times and each time it arrived about 20/30 minutes late to collect us. From leaving our room to getting to the hotel pool took about 1 hour!! Avoid this hotel.
It was very centrally located within Taormina enabling easy access to various bars and restaurants. It also offered superb panoramic views of the sea and mt Etna. Staff were very firndly and helpful. Out dated decor of rooms and reception/ lounge area of hotel
not a thing everything,the rooms were dirty dust everywhere, windows were filthy,dont think they had ever been used, excuse for an air conditioning unit that was full of bug and germ bearing dust, bathroom was awful the whole place had a seady air about it and I would not put my dog in it if it were a kennal
very old bed. small bathroom
We stayed in junior suit with a perfect view of Etna and sea; the terrace was perfect..
The room was good, a little old but quaint. It was clean and quite large. The hotel is also old but typical of Taormina. The staff were very polite and helpful. It was quiet and the view from my room beautiful. Breakfast was also very good and the view from the restaurant is of Naxos and Etna. I think it just needs some TLC
Location! I'd say is not a 4 stars hotel as advertised!
The hotel has a pleasant home-like feeling and an excellent location. At breakfast time one can enjoy the view of Mt.Etna from the rooftop terrace. Around the corner are the Public Gardens (Giardino Pubblico), very convenient for a walk in the well tended park, and again with view of Mt.Etna and the sea. At the same time only a few minutes walk away from the main corso. English speakers are well served at the front desk. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation!
the staff attitude -
We had a great view from our room that was wonderful to see each morning.
utroligt venligt personale og beliggenheden er fantastisk nej
Fantastisk hotel med meget venlig og professionelt personale. Rengøringen var i top og værelserne har en god størrelse.
Meget venligt og service minded personale. Viste stor interesse i at give råd og guide os så vores ophold i byen blev godt. Derudover var udsigten fantastisk smuk.
Vi havde et super ophold på Panoramic Hotel. Fantastisk beliggenhed, rent, god service og godt/hjælpsomt hotelpersonele. Kun et lille minus; støj fra gaden
Proffesionelt, serviceminded og venligt personale
Beatiful views over the Bay, location within 5 mins walking of centre, lovely pool, friendly staff. Cost of Car Parking 8 euros per day.
Very convenient to bus station, cable car and Taormina town. Pool area very nice as was bar balcony, with a nice view. Public areas very attractive. Free use of internet computer an advantage
Modern, comfortable, ideal, located with the attentive intelligent stuff, big rooms, easy to come to the center of Taormina and to the see. Nothing
Its proximity to the town and the views were spectacular. Gardens were well done Not really, we were there off season and the pool was shut, I suppose this was understandable
very nice location, in the city up on the mountain, nice view. But shower room must be refurbiched.
Accessibility to town,beautiful pool,well appointed room,hotel fit out with good quality paintings and furniture.Room overlooking the pool and the view to the sea.In all an excellent place to stay They could probably increse the output of the air conditionining.Difficult to keep room cool in hot summer.
The location was great and we had a room with wonderful views. The breakfast was excellent and the choices changed each day. It was only a short walk to the old town and the cable car. Car parking was great - very hard to get in Taormina. The only entrance and exit was down a very very steep circular driveway. Once you had climbed that the rest was easy.
The location was great; overlooking the coastline and only a few minutes walk from the heart of Taormina.
Very well run hotel, great staff, fantastic views, walking distance to town centre. Partition walls between rooms are to light, and the hill out of the hotel was very steep.
Location is great, excellent views. The bungalo was very small and had no "garden" as was advertised and shown on the photos. Instead, it had a little plastic desk with two chairs located by the side road, with an angled seaview. Bungalo surroundings vary from one another and you may not get the one as per your expectations. Had to pay extra money to move to a suite because "no other bungalos were available"
The location is great. Beautiful views on Isola Bella. It took long to check-in and the staff, although very willing, was not very efficient/professional. Had to ask multiple times for things.
Very helpful staff; unusual, well designed room accomodation; lovely outlook from the beach to La Bella Isola An overpriced winelist; being pestered by itinerants on the beach offering massage every few minutes (although I'm not sure what the hotel can do about this)
Idyllic place. The location is fantastic, right on the edge of a small bay with a miniature island attached to the shore by a small sand bar. The hotel opened this year so everything is brand new a very beautifully done. In addition is relatively not that expensive compared to other top hotels in Sicily. I felt it was worth the money. As its perched on an incline the carpark is sometimes tricky to maneuvuor around especially if its nearly full. This is typical of such places not just this hotel.
Having a great view of the ocean and isola bella is priceless. b/c many of the rooms are stand alone bungalows, insects creep into the room which may be annoying for some guests.
Hotel staf and all services were excellent No.
The hotel has an old world charm, good size clean rooms. Towels and Chairs provided each day on the beach. Not far from cabelcar which takes you up to the center of Taormina. Evening is boring if you do not go into the city.
the hotel was clean and the staff were nice and friendly. the location and the buffet breakfast the bar was hopeless
Staff really made this a memorable holiday. Food and service excellent Could do with a few renovations, but this also adds to the charm
The hotel room facing the beach, size of the room, the food the shower, there wasn't a real bath tub to stand in whilst taking a shower
Nice restaurant, nice beach Missing water kettle in the room, water stay in bathroom after shower
Nice view from the room, very close to Taormine and direct access to the beach. Prices are high for a low season period.
The room was spacious and clean and I had an excellent sea view. Breakfast was delicious.The staff was friendly and helpful. No.
Friendly & Helpful staff, nice beach, great views from balcony. Internet access was expensive , €10 per hour.
Superb view, helpful staff, clean and comfortable room
the views having a film being made in the hotel during our stay. no thought about health and safety
We were not satisfied with our original room in the annex,but were upgraded to a suite in the main building with a wonderful view as soon as the staff realized our unhappiness.
The facilities, the view and the location
It was a wonderful experience to stay this hotel. Sprendid view..... Very difficult to get the hotel by car.
The accommodations were first rate. The view from our balcony of the sea and of Mt. Etna was breathtaking. I loved the proximity of the hotel to the Taormina shopping area. I am already planning my return trip to the Grand Hotel Timeo. We ended up staying in a Junior Suite rather than the Double Deluxe Room. The signs in Taormina to the Grand Hotel Timeo could be better. It was hard for us to find the hotel entrance and the parking area.
Quality of the public rooms No
luxury and intimate
The hotel was quite beautiful and well located. The breakfast on the terrace with the beautiful view was a delight. We were located in the annex which we would not have taken if we realized it. Although the room was nice, we felt isolated.
the view, the swiming pool and the excellent breakfast italian staff never very dynamic
The whole atmosphere in the hotel, with all the history and kind staff
Excellent location, beautiful panorama, fantastic breakfast served at the terrace, nice and clean room. some traffic noise
The location of the hotel. a lot of steps to reach the room.
Views of Mt Etna in the morning were great
very relaxed no
The character of the place and the staff I could not criticise this hotel
The warm welcome and helpful staff made the stay an amazing one. Let alone the breathtaking view of the bay.
beautiful view little parking but understandable
We enjoyed the lovely views and gardens all around the hotel. The small number of staff were friendly and helpful and happy to bring drinks of any description to our terrace or out in the gardens. We had a very pleasant 3 day stay at Bel Soggiorno.
Except for the mini shower, superb *** hotel. Excellent breakfast. Very affordable wines available. When a German gentleman exercises his skills (?) on the piano for more than two hours.
The feel of the hotel - very Sicilian. Views idyllic. Staff friendly and helpful
Tjenerne i restauranten kunne godt være lidt mindre reserverte. Man kunne godt bruge type Bistro i hotellet.
God belligenhed, smuk have, venligt personale. restaurant ligger smukt, men maden er ikke på det niveau den burde være.
Interior design - a small hotel, few rooms - personal service/staff - location nothing, just perfect
Lovely villa......the breakfasts are homemade items both unique to a buffet and delicious. Rosalie and Elena are wonderful hosts for the villa.
The breakfast was very good, service was excellent and location was perfect. The view, we did really have such a good view. The beds were not that comfortable, they did not match the comfort level of the hotel and the service.
Although the hotel is situated somewhat outside the main Taormina area the friendly staff and excellent views coupled with good fare in the restaurant more than made up for the distance. The suite was comfortable and clean. I would however suggest that the shuttle service to the city centre be more frequent. We will certainly return
The view, hospitality and breakfast were outstanding. The lighted and clear mirror in the bathroom made everybody look beautiful. I also liked having a be-day. It was very quiet because it was a long walk from the action of the town. I didn't like that the only view to the outside was through the door, no other windows in the small room. It was a long walk from town.
The breakfast was excellent and imaginative, with local specialities. Shuttle bus to Taormina was very useful.
The level of service and the view from the terrace
this one is a very special hotel. In many ways it is like everything you see and experience has an extra something. You get everything you'd expect - we had a large room overlooking the bay - a big bathroom - a fridge bar - beautiful clean and stylish decor - fluffy white towels.... and then there's the service, personal, friendly.Great value for low rates.
Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, very relaxed and unstuffy, fantastic breakfast with beautiful views of the coastline and mountains, lovely antipasti provided in the evening with cocktails on the terrace, spacious room with private balcony and sea view. Best hotel we've stayed in and a fantastic start to our honeymoon. The only drawback was the quite long walk to and from the town - pleasant on the way down but uphill on the way back, but a shuttle bus was provided by the hotel and there are local buses too.
The staff were extremely friendly and attentive - very welcoming and helpful. Made our honeymoon stay very pleasant (Thanks, Paolo, Antonio, Alicia, Luca!). Great terrace, very well appointed rooms, very useful complimentary bus service. Gemma and Pram Leaving it...
Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. A glass of wine offered on arrival is a great attention. Our room and bathroom were very clean, elegant and comfortable. The view from the private mini terrasse and from the main terrasse of the hotel is astonishing. The rooms are equiped with SKY TV, meaning a great choice of channels. The value for money was excellent. No, but maybe because we stayed only one night. For people who stay longer, it might be a bit far from the city centre and they might miss a swimming pool. However, they have good deals with three private beaches and a system of free shuttle to get there or to the city center.
Gorgeous setting and very friendly and welcoming staff
The view! The friendliness of the staff.
