    view from the room and the breakfast.

    Noise early in the morning around the hotel.

    We really enjoyed our stay at La Pensione Svizzera. We were so glad that we had chosen this small and friendly hotel. The breakfast was great - good selection of everything and it was lovey to have this on the terrace with great views. Lovely seating areas in the garden/patio to relax and so convenient for Taormina's town centre and to see the sights. Very handy for the amphitheatre. Would really recommend this place and if we go back to Taormina would definitely go back to this hotel. The staff were really helpful

    Could not really fault it other than as there is no lift in the building it was hard to get our luggage up 2 flights of stairs - but aside from that it is well worth a visit

    The hotel is located in the city center, with an easy access to the beach (Isola Bella) by cable car. If you want to have a very rich and various breakfast with an amazing view to the bay, I reccommend this place. :-) Also, the staff was very kind and helpful. I am 100% satisfied with the location and the hotel's services.

    The proximity to the centre, The relaxing breakfast room and the view of the bed room at an extra charge ofcorse..

    The sea view room that was given to us on the third floor was so tiny that you can just about manage to walk on the side and get on to the bed. This surely should have been used as a single room and not a double room.But our neighbour who was staying single showed her room which seemed to be bigger than ours and she paid the same price!The bath room was also very small and not practical. The tiny shower doors would not close properly . So each time you take a shower you need to mop the floor. Limited but sufficient choice for us for breakfast. Shame but I will not return to this hotel.

    I loved everything about this hotel. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The view of the sea from my window was spectacular. The buffet breakfast, which I ate outside in the garden, was excellent. The hotel is conveniently located near the center of town, the cable car to the beach, and the bus station.I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in Taorrmina..

    The breakfast was great, excellent location - 5 minutes from Taormina centre. The hotel is very cosy and quite.

    It was very hard to pick up the luggage to the 4th floor. Nobody from the hotel staff helped us. The same was in the last day. (there is no elevator). The room is hardly 18 m.

    Excellent location to the action in Taormina. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea which we loved.Bed was very comfortable. Sumptous breakfast set up in the outside breakfast room. Extremely helpful and welcoming staff.

    Location, character and view from room

    Breakfast orange juice and having to carry cases up two flights of stairs

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke a number of different languages. The room was well furnished, with wi-fi, and had a terrace, although not a view. Convenient to town, but didnt have to deal with congested roads and easy to park nearby. The breakfast was freshly prepared and generous, in a nice room with a view.

    The room was noisy from those above and beside us and we could hear them walking and talking and moving furniture very distinctly, not to mention all the water in the pipes from their rooms. Try to get a room on the upper floors, which would also have a view.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Location very convenient for walking into Taormina centre and nearby places of interest. Lovely terrace and breakfast area.

    4 flights of stairs to have a sea view, but hotel had informed us before hand that no lift and soon got used to the climb!

  • Family with children

    Welcoming staff, lovely location, lovely scent, very clean, relazing environment, beautiful design, great value for money

  • Couple
    9.6

    Very friendly personnel. Good, cozy rooms. An excellent arrangement, all in steam of minutes from a rope-way, and bus station. To the center on foot 5 minutes. It is possible to approach easily by the car. A good breakfast. The lovely woman cooked tasty cappuccino, strewed by chocolate, and croissants melted in the mouth.

    In our room in a bathroom there was a window leaving on sunny side, at a window wasn't a jalousie, therefore was very much hot

  • Couple
    7.4

    Location, just 3 minutes away from the very center of town, and view of the coast. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff is friendly.

    Hotel has no elevator, which is OK if you need some extra workout during your stay but a problem if you have mobility issues. Breakfast is just plain, I would at least expect some fresh orange juice in Sicily!
