The staff were extremely helpful and informative, our room was on a corner of the building with 2 balconies and had great views of the Mount Etna and the sea. It is really well placed for exploring the town and has car parking. We only ate breakfast here but...

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at this elegant hotel. It is full in interesting history with the owner's family story. The place had grand views to Mt. Etna and down to the sea. The staff was very friendly and the place was spotless. Highly recommend it!

Outstanding hotel/B&B. Accommodations were great. Enjoyed the Jr. Suite with the sea view and Mt. Etna. A short walk to the main town and shopping district. Definitely a challenge for those with walking disabilities, but so is all of Sicily. The breakfast was exceptional and service ideal. What a way to wake up in the morning. Special thanks to Marco...

Hotel Villa Schuler provides an elegant place to stay in lovely Taormina. We had booked an upgraded room and we had a room with a small balcony overlooking the sea and Mt. Edna. Although the room itself was compact, the hotel was spacious and airy with a beautiful garden. We missed having a pool, which is the only reason we...

We spent a lovely five nights here. Our room was clean, spacious and quiet with a view down the bay to Naxos (not quite seeing Etna). The staff are all extremely friendly and very talented linguists. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast on the terrace in October is great (probably not in the summer) but be prepared to spend an...

This is probably one of the best places to stay in Taomina. We had a sun rise suite with seaside views. The breakfast is served on the terrace. They offer a great choice of differnt food including local specialities. The terrace offers a stunning view of the sea and mount Etna. We loved it very much !!

Dear guest from Königsdorf, thank you so much for your 5* comment on our hotel and services. We are happy to read that your booked Sunrise Junior Suite and our services fully met your expectations. As you pointed out, our LATE CHECK-OUT DAY-ROOM for exclusive use # 35 is indeed tiny and this is why we do NEVER sell it...

With views overlooking the bay, HVS provides a wonderfull location. Even rear facing rooms overlook the gardens. Our room has a small balcony and a larger one with table and chairs so we could look at both the bay and Mt Etna. The bathroom is small but modern. Staff were very helpful especially when I got lost driving in Taormina...
