Very friendly staff. Location is fabulous. The views from the terrace over mount etna are amazing. It’s just a few minutes walk uphill to Castelmola where there are lovely restaurants and the most unique Bar Turrisi.

Sijainti ihastuttava. Näkymä Etnalle. Uima-allas. Huoneet siistit ja tilavat. Linja-autokuljetus Taorminaan ja takaisin.

Nice,peacefull romantic hotel in a nice village

Peacefull romantic hotel especially the restaurant. Wiews from the restaurant were huge. We stayed only one night but liked the village so much that we walked there 3 times from Taormina.

Unohtumaton näköala!

Pros: Ennen kaikkea jäi mieleen huoneemme oma pikku terassi ilta-aurinkoon päin, ja mykistyttävän kaunis näköala Etnan suuntaan.
Location: Taormina jäi meiltä tutustumatta, vaikka hotellista olisi ollut sinne hyvät bussiyhteydet. Castelmolassa kannattaa nauttia upeista vuoristomaisemista.
Yövyimme tässä hotellissa pienessä Castelmolan kylässä Taorminan tuntumassa yhden yön. Hotelli sijaitsi hyvin korkealla vuoren rinteellä, joten se tuntui olevan kovin kaukana kaikesta, mm. Taorminan keskustasta. Etäisyys ei varmaan kilometreissä ollut pitkä, mutta korkeusero ja kiemurteleva vuoristotie saivat sen tuntumaan pidemmältä kuin olikaan.Hotellista näytti kuitenkin olevan hyvät bussiyhteydet Taormiinaan sekä hotellin omalla kuljetuksella että julkisilla kulkuvälineillä. Tulimme hotelliin melko myöhään, joten emme ehtineet nauttia kaikista hotellin palveluista tai käydä Taorminan keskustassa, joten bussipalvelu jäi meiltä testaamatta. Castelmolan kylään sen sijaan -oli vain muutama sata metriä matkaa, ja sieltä löytyi kävelymatkan päästä idyllinen pikku kylä ja monta kivaa ravintolaa. Näköala sekä hotellihuoneemme että illallisravintolamme terassilta olivat huikean upeat, minkä takia ylös kannatti kuitenkin tulla!

Romanttinen matka

Hotelli sijaitsi upealla paikalla Castelmolan rinteessä. Huoneestamme/isolta terassilta oli näkymä suoraan Etnalle. Aamupala oli hyvä ja kahvi erinomaista. Henkilökunta oli ystävällistä. Olimme sesongin loppuvaiheessa, joten asiakkaita oli vähän mutta se ei haitannut, päinvastoin. Hotellin uima-altaalta oli myös Etna-näkymä. Allasbaarissa sai useasti odottaa palvelua, koska henkilökuntaa ei ollut paikalla. Hotellin kuntosali koostui yhdestä laitteesta. Nettiyhteys oli myös heikko huoneessamme. Hyvä hotelli upealla paikalla jota voi lämpimästi suositella rauhallista ja kiireetöntä lomaa etsiville.

Stilvoller Erholungsort

Schöne Lage mit Blick auf Ätna, aber nicht auf Meer. Sehr freundliche Bedienung und mit vielen Antiquitäten ausgestattetes Interieur. Grosszügiges Zimmer. Einziges Manko: Unser Badezimmer war zwar ok, hätte aber für ein 4-Sterne-Hotel wieder einmal eine Renovation nötig.
