    Poor 2.0
    The mattress had a big stain, the room smell bad, there was no help for the luggage, even though the street exit is several steps up from the reception and to reach a taxi you have to walk 30yd on cobblestone streets

    Lovely stay
    We enjoyed our weeks stay at Il Piccolo Giardino. Our superior room had all we needed and the terrace afforded a lovely view of the sea and the Greek Theatre. Breakfasts were good and being able to sit in the quiet garden in the morning was excellent. The pool was a bonus with spectacular views across the town to the sea. The only downside for us in our stay was the noise that came from the restaurant on the steps by the hotel which played loud music from midday to well past midnight. Making a quiet glass of wine on the terrace not so quiet!

    Mike & Marie's get away
    Was a good stay but the breakfast was a little cut back from past stays. We had a nice room though this year we went a little earlier and with the pool above us it was tough trying to sleep in with everyone moving the pool furniture around (dragging it across the floor). Though we will be back next year, our 5th time staying here, location is great staff are wonderful and it's nice to be welcomed back by the staff and that they remember us from the previous visits. Next time I think I will try and get the annex building and give that a try.

    Excellent hotel
    Loved everything about our stay.. Taormina is beautiful, lots to see and do. The hotel is perfectly placed, just off the Main Street. The hotel is lovely and peaceful and the roof top pool is beautiful, we often had it completely to ourselves which was lovely. Breakfast was good (continental) and the restaurant setting was really lovely. The lady who works at breakfast deserves a special mention, such a hard worker! Wouldn’t have changed anything about the hotel or holiday.. wonderful!

    Small hotel in center of Taormina
    Small hotel connected to a fish restaurant. Very pleasant personnel and comfortable room overlooking the roofs of Taormina with the sea in the distance. There is no parking, so best to leave the car in the Lumbi car garage as you exit the tunnel and take their free bus to the center of town. The hotel is a short walk uphill from there. The hotel is in the center of everything in Taormina, which means it is a heavily touristed area, but it is surprisingly quiet at night
