Lovely Hotel with very helpful and welcoming staff. The rooms aren't as soundproof as you might expect from a hotel of this quality but not too bad. Good location near the main bus terminal for day trips and only a short walk up to town. Great breakfast choices. Bacon and eggs! Overall a very good choice.

In my opinion Svizzera is a perfect place to stay in Taormina. We spent 5 days there. Our room on the 4th floor with sea view was clean and cosy. It was cleaned every day. Breakfasts were tasteful and reach comparing to other places we stayed in Italy. Reception staff was very helpfull. They explained us how to get to sandy beach in Giardini Naxos and to Etna. Hotel is located near(2 min. walking) to cable car that takes people to the beach. Taormina main street with many shops and restaurants is just 8 min. walking from Svizzera. It was a very pleasent stay for us. There is no elevator in the hotel, which might be a disadvantage for older people.

Avoid this hotel. The quality of service was the worst encountered in Italy/Sicily. The staff were not only rude, but unhelpful. A fire alarm (false) lasted for 35 minutes on a Friday morning which they were unable to neutralize. We were also bitten bedbugs -- not mosquitoes --. There are several other lovely hotels on the site which could provide a much better stay at a comparable price.

Some things need to be made more clear such as location (Taormina map is not particularly accurate particularly in relationship with other important places such as the bus terminal and car parks) and that there was an option for a see view (not offered at time of booking!). Still a good hotel

This hotel was simply perfect. We had no complaints whatsoever. We do have two caveats. Do not drive to the hotel if you have anything larger than a very small car. The hotel has three tiny parking places, basically on-street parking but reserved. Taormina has two good public parking lots, and it would be fairly easy to walk from the one closest to the Messina exit from the autostrada. Our other caveat is that staying at the Svizzera requires being able to climb stairs. The entrance is not at street level on either side. Be sure to pay extra for a room with a view! Also be sure to go to Ristorante Anfora at Via Denti,5, on a tiny street off the main shopping street, the Corso Umberto. It specializes in fresh fish, and the fish are truly fresh. There are no more than five or six tables, and the service is wonderful too.

We had a wonderful three days in Taormina. The quiet room with the large terrace had a lovely view of the sea and the surrounding hillside. The generous breakfast buffet was the best we had the whole time we visited Sicily. We enjoyed the steep hikes with the gorgeous views that you can take going above and below Taormina. Definitely a highlight of the trip. (The hotel is especially easy to get to if arriving by bus.)

Just two negatives - nowhere did it say that there was no lift and we were on the 3rd floor. Plus two flights of stairs to get to the street. Be warned if you have heavy luggage or are not into heavy lifting. Breakfast was lacking the advertised 'Fruits in Season' component. Just a little tub of apple puree. Would have liked at least a banana or pear. There is that much white bread and cake one can eat. Very friendly staff looking after the breakfast.

The Hotel Svizzera was excellent. We had a three bedded room which was roomy & very comfortable, but being on the ground floor did not have the sea view experienced by people on the upper floors. The location was very good, being close to the bus station and cable car and only a short walk from the town. Breakfast was good for the standard of hotel and the service from everyone at the hotel was very helpful and friendly. Our only grumble was that for a few days we had a party of women in the next door room who all insisted on talking at once and at the top of their voices, which was annoying but did not spoil our visit. Even the weather was very good for early April. I have no hesitation in recommending the Hotel Svizzera!

Very nice hotel and staff. They seem to cater to U.S. travels, which worked out well since that's what we were. The hotel is not very sound proof - we could here everything that happened in the stairwell. The acoustics seemed to amplify the sound, not diminsh them. That said, I can sleep through anything and thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

"The room with a view" was correct expression, but it was also "a room with full of noises": Footsteps and voices of people from the stairs, creaking noises of moving furniture from upstairs, big "bang" from the doors of the same floor... I don't remember how many times I woke up because of these. Also, the receptionist's behaviour was very bad when the floor was covered with flooding water from the velanda! It was the worst place I've ever spend my holidays whole in my life. Afterward my claim of the water flooding, we never had proper greetings at the reception. My mother says she'd never forget how angrily the receptionist stared at her whenever her eyes met hers. Even though the friendly smiles and nice cappuccino at the breakfast, we never want to come back to this place again.

This is dream accommodation. After travelling by train across Europe, the 4 days we spent in Taormina was paradise for my wife and me. Our room was spacious, comfortable, with a great terrace facing north and spectacular views of the coastline. Staff at every level were friendly and helpful. Breakfast taken in the dining room in very comfortable & friendly surroundings. Few menu choices but good quality & service, just what we needed to start the day. Carrying luggage to the top floors could be a problem for some. Luckily we were on the first floor. We recommend Room 7.

Nice pleasnt, clean hotel - bedrooms and bathrooms appear to have been modernised quite recently. Good location and nice view and only 7 minutes walk from main restaurants etc and 1 minute from cable car to beach. We were on the top floor and there is no escalator, so if you have a problem with stairs, you might want a lower room, but you might have to pay more. Breakfast was good and breakfast area very pleasant. If you ask for a (pay) car-parking space, go and see it before you drive to it. I missed it the first time and spent 10 minutes in the one-way system trying to get back to it.

Excellent value for money. Nice rooms modern and simple and not overly decorative. I had one with a balocony over the main street which provided a lovely view but did make it a little noisy, but was well worth it. The building itself was also very attractive and had a nice garden area. The breakfast was excellent, providing a fantastic range. My only criticisms were that we had specifically looked for a hotel with air-conditioning in the room and parking facilities - the online price we paid included air-conditioning in the cost but I had to ask for the a/c remote as it was kept at the desk (because usually there is an additional charge to use it), the receptionist seemed a little grumpy when I asked for it. Regarding parking, there wasn't really any parking facilities as the hotel only had about 2 spots - there was parking a little way down the street at a cost of approximately 8Euro a day. Also they had internet facilities which was great but the prices they were charging were not anywhere near competitive to most internet cafes. Overall this is a great value for money hotel.

A beautiful building with wonderful views, small rooms and incredibly noisy. You can here the traffic in the early morning and all other noise inside the building. When we were there the hotel was full of noisy and inconsiderate Americans who used the hotel as a sorority/fraternity house and this greatly aggrevated the noise problem. The breakfast and the lady serving it were a sheer delight. There is nothing "Swiss" about the hotel incidentally; it is German thorugh and through and the proud and patriotic owners tend seem to attempt to order only German-made products.

The hotel was well situated quite close to the centre of Taormina(5 mins walk)and very close to the cable car which connects with the resorts below. Also very handy for the bus station (2mins), enabling easy access to other resorts and towns in the area. In Retrospect we realize that the hotel was well priced with respect to other hotels in Taormina. The only negative point was that the room was slightly noisy but not excessively so. Definitely a winner on price. Recommended with reservations.

My only complaint, and it applies to all the hotels we stayed in while just in Italy (9/25-10/16) was that there were never enough towel racks in the bathrooms (especially when two people share a room), or hooks behind bathroom doors to hold robes, etc. Also, there seems to be an aversion to placing a waste basket in the room, like next to the desk, as well as in the bathroom. And, let's face it, are bidets really that important anymore? Hotel bath-rooms in Europe would be a lot roomier without them. Let the hand-held shower do the work.

Svizzera is a lovely, clean and friendly hotel. Parking is fine, IF you reserve it when booking (put a comment in the box provided when booking through this site and the hotel will reserve you a space. There are only 3 spaces though, but we booked on Sat morning for a sunday arrival in August and managed to get a space. Ask the hotel for directions as well, it is not easy to find when you first arrive. Basically head towards Taormina and Lumbo car park, (from the motorway exit to Taormina) and then at the car park (don't drive into it) turn left towards the town centre, when you get to the main street (up a hill) turn left (the main pedestrian archway will be in front of you) then it's just down this street on the left opposite the petrol station. Breakfast is fine, continental. The hotel is perfect for exploring couples, but wouldn't recommend it to young families as the facilities are limited (no bar) if you need to put the kids to bed early. Taormina is lovely but noisy, there are tonnes of teenagers on mopeds, the noise is unavoidable -take some ear plugs and you won't notice it.

Pleasant place. Decent breakfast with nice view. But people need warning that parking of cars is VERY difficult. The hotel has three parking spaces only, which are only the sides of a very narrow street full of impatient drivers intolerant of efforts to back into the parking spaces (which are protected with chains you have to unlock). Customers need warning to book their parking spaces. One also needs a map telling the key turns when coming from motorway.

An excellent hotel in an excellent location. Taormina is a beautiful small town at the top of a cliff/hill so location is very important. Wonderful views from room of the sea etc and very near to the town of Taormina. Close to cable car. Breakfast buffet was good with lots of variety. Would highly recommend and would go back there if in Sicily again. Rooms are quite small but view makes up for. If using public transport best way to get there is by coach (train station is at the bottom of the hill and impossible without taxi!). If have a car you will need to book parking.
