We found Villa Floresta to be in a great location looking over the Duomo and Piazza below. Literally one minute from cafes and sites, just off the main strip. There was a little bit of noise from the restaurant below but nothing major. The family who run Villa Floresta are not always there but they are very friendly and helpful...

Condition of this place is reflected in the price despite the good internet photo's, good location but building needs a very good renovation done. Hard to get a hold of owners as they were never on site. Would not stay here again but for those not fussed about smelly bathrooms and run down rooms it is in an ideal location.

Dear reviser, you have written about smelly bathrooms and run down rooms. But in which room with bathroom do you was stayed? We don't understand your disappoint because all the guests of Villa Floresta know that the rooms are restructured and equipped with new bathrooms and furnishings. And also, all rooms and bathrooms are also kept clean every day. We...

I would very much like to recommend your charming B&B, beautifully situated in the heart of Taormina. The idyllic setting of Villa Floresta is perfect to explore all this unique city has to offer in day as well as night life. We very much enjoyed breakfast directly at the Piazza Duomo, and once again here the staff at the cafe...

My wife and I stayed in Taormina for three nights. It is a cute little town and like elsewhere in Sicily the locals are great but if the weather is poor, as we suffered, you are a bit stuck and one night will suffice. This B&B is in a great location, the rooms are kept clean and it is pretty...

Hallo David, we are sorry for your book review, but we agree with you about the street indications of Villa Floresta, but unfortunately is prohibited to put our sign at the public square (Piazza Duomo). We make excuses to you also about the bar Le 4 fontane that was closed for technical troubles. We are sorry also for not to...

We have just returned from a week at Villa Floresta in Taormina and it was brilliant. When we arrived at the lovely little hotel and opened our 2 balcony doors we saw beautiful views from both sides! One of the Beautiful Duomo Square and cathedral and the other of the sea in the distance. Our room was fine and kept...

We lost two hours of the time we had available to explore Taormina because of inexplicable difficulty in merely checking into this hotel. After finally locating the hotel and finding a temporary place to park while we unloaded our luggage, we were shocked to find no one there to check us in or even store our luggage. No message or...

We spent three nights in this lovable B&B. Although Taormina is a difficult place for parking, we got a close parking slot. Caretakers were always nice to us and breakfast, in the beautiful coffee place next to the B&B, was simply delicious. It was nice to wake up in the morning in our nice room with the sun coming through...

We stayed Jan 08 at this B&B. it really should be called a Pensione as no breakfast was included or offered. The breakfast that they advertise is coffe and a brioche at the snack bar (Billy & Billy) jn the building next door. They will charge you 3 Euro for the coupon. You can get better all over town.

Kind host, we answer to your book review saying you that our structure is a bed & breakfast and it is not a pension. We have opened at 2004 with approximately 600 presences every year: in fact we have been selected from several tourist guides (between which also the Touring Italian Club) as a receptive structure between the best ones...

The brochure proclaimed that all rooms had balconies, however it turned out that the balcony was from the toilet, which is not a lot of use other than drying clothes! It was in a very central location (virtually on a piazza), with a good view of the duomo. The room decoration was ok. It was difficult the night before we...
