Mamma Maria is within easy walking distance of all the major tourist sites of Taormina. We stayed in the 'Suite' which had previously been a flat, and was still full of pots pans and plates to feed 6, with a tiny bathroom and very small double bed. The large balcony had wonderful views to Etna and the bay. The manager was pleasant but totally unhelpful. Breakfast was very poor, pre-wrapped buns and horrid jams. The car parking was seemingly non-existent. Check out at 10.30 was the earliest we experienced in Sicily, and breakfast 8.30 to 10, with no compromises to help early sightseeing. WiFi was on the ground floor and no effort had been made to extend it to our room. In short, great location, but poor service.

We rented the top-level room and it had an amazing rooftop patio. Great views of the ocean and mountains and a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine. If you can book this room definitely stay here. I can't say if the other rooms are worth the price - looks like they have a tiny balcony and not much of a view. The one big disappointment was the breakfast. Few selections and everything was packaged including the bread and cheese! We were in Italy for 3 weeks and this was the worst breakfast provided. Also, the wireless only works in the lobby. That wasn't a big deal for us though a little inconvenient when we needed to do some surfing for restaurants, etc.

Charming B&B, around the corner from everything you want to see in Taormina. However, extremely hard to find. You will need a GPS to locate, but will be dealing with one way roads- and there is little to no parking. You will pull up, unload, and then have to know the city somewhat to park, and make your way back to the B&B. Therefore a map of the city before you get there is advised. Fabulous room provided views of Sea and Mt Etna. Bed small for for 2. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Little to no English spoken, but we made out okay.

We had a wonderful time in Taormina. Our welcome at Mamma Maria was beyond excellent as we had mixed up our reservation and arrived on their doorstep at 5 o'clock at night three days early!! With some juggling by the owner, we were put in a beautiful room that looked out on Mount Etna. What could be more perfect? Taormina is a walled town and it is close to impossible to access the town with a car. There is excellent parking right at the entrance to the town and from there you will be taken by shuttle bus to the gate nearest the centre. From here it is a short walk to Mamma Maria. Mamma Maria is situated off Via Lallia Basia on its own little walkway, which is its address (very confusing at first). Instructions should be for Via Lallia Basia I think. Oh, and I shouldn't forget to tell you that the pastries for breakfast came from the bakery just below the bed and breakfast!! Delicious.
