The building has been completely renovated inside, while maintaining the original outside structure.

Without a phone, I had trouble getting ahold of the owner for several hours, because I arrived early in the day and wanted to leave my luggage in the hotel. I had trouble understanding how to use the public phone, and the near-by bar/restaurants didn't seem too concerned other than to point me to the public phone. Finally a young tour guide sat next to me, and I showed her my message in Italian, and she gladly let me use her phone. The owner was there in 15 minutes, like she said she would be and was overflowing with kindness. I recommended the hotel to a family of 5 or six, who did stay there that same night. Breakfast was at another location, which was okay. I liked the hotel just fine, and slept well. I moved north after one night's stay. I probably will not return to Taormina for other reasons.

This is a very beautiful part of the world. I was there for a conference and the hotel suited me fine for this. I would not stay there for a romantic break, I think I would have been a little disappointed as it is more a functional room rather than romantic decor. The mattresses are a little tired and have lost their spring and the bedding is a little aged. Breakfast is served at 9am and my conference started at 8am! Still the staff were friendly and helpful; if I were to attend a conference there again I would use the same venue as long as I was not taking my family with. It was well located on the main tourist route.

First impression was poor as the Landlord was not avaible - neither at the hostel, nor by phone. It took as a call back home to Germany, to organize him and get into the Bed & Breakfast. However the rooms have been nice. No breakfast included. The hostal is situated in the city centre if Taormina: great! Taormina was a kind of Italian Disneyland, but lot of German like that. Don't miss the view from the Greek theatre to the sea: splendissimo!

This B&B has location as it's best attribute. Right in the heart of Taormina you couldn't ask for better locale. There was no breakfast, so really it's just a 'B' but we were greeted promptly upon arrival and our room was clean. For the price, excellent location.
