            Giuseppe is really nice, the place is clean, and in a great location. Had room 201 which has a large patio that over looks the sea and the greek theatre. Breakfast was really nice.

            WIFI/internet didn't work

            Giuseppe, owner of the hotel is a really nice guy. We stayed there only for 2 nights, but are very pleased with the hotel and the service as well. If you're looking for a good hotel in the very center of Taormina I recommend Residence Circe.

            The lift wasn't working when we were there. We weren't bothered about it as stayed on the 2nd floor, but if you stay on the 3rd, 4th etc. and have a lot of luggage it will help you lose some callories :)

            The location of the hotel is good, in the heart of the lively main street but still close enough to a shuttle that takes you to a public car park. The kitchenette in the room was comfortable for cooking small meals for when you don't feel like eating out. The terrace with the room is very big and nice, and the included breakfast included really fresh and excellent food. But above all this, the selling point would be the hospitality of the owner, Giuseppe, who was always very helpful and nice with us, providing us with a lot of information and hints. If I had to go to Taormina again, I would definitely stay here again!

            9.6

            The residence was very well situated right in the middle of town. Guisseppe, the owner was very accommodating and friendly. He spoke excellent English and was funny and helpful. The rooms were large and the back ones overlooked the castle and ocean. They were clean and very roomy. Breakfast was served in the hotel at the back of the B and B. It was fresh, quite extensive and generous. Airconditioning was a bonus.The only draw back was the front room that one of our party had was noisy. Excellent value and I would definately recommend it.

            Residence Circe was excellent for it's cleanliness. You could smell the cleanliness. The location was fantastic. The beds were extremely comfortable and thank you for the air conditioning. We had breakfast included, which was lovely. Thank-you for a great stay!!

            At the beginning we were complaining because of wireless Internet did not work but now I am sorry that I inquired so many times and bothered the good man Giuseppe so much. The best thing that you could meet on your holiday is the impression which results in fact that you want to come again in the same place and in the same hotel.We exactly experienced feelings like these. Everything was so charming and friendly.Location,view from terrace and beauty of Corso Umberto street was unforgettably.Being Giuseppe`s guest was the same feeling of being in your own home. Family Cvijanovic from Belgrade,Serbia,July 2011.

            Nothing for serious complaining!

            Great location, nice space, facilites such as the closet kitchen which I loved.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Central location in Taormino and close to the cable car for beaches , Greek theater and shuttle bus for parking The room was quiet spacious for 4 people bearing in mind the main street of TAORMINO Lack of TV and Internet - ( believe it is an advantage)))) Posh Italian shopping till 21 .00 Tasty dinner with quiet romantic atmosphere ( very rare for noisy Taormino)

            Very noisy ( the garbage men at 6 ^ the last tourist at 24 - if you are planning to stay more then 2 nights I can't recommend it) No swimming pool ( we survived but it was promised) The hotel is old ( lift didn't work, air condition remembers my Granny, all night water dropping in the bathroom) But all these drawbacks are not crucial for such a price and Central location

            The manager Giuseppe is extremely friendly and helpful. The room had a small well equipped kitchenette, which enabled us to prepare our own meals. A very good buffet breakfast at a restaurant just across the street was included in the price. The location on Corso Umberto I was excellent. A very good choice for budget travelers in Taormina (which is a very expensive town).

            Excellent location on Corso Umberto the Main street in Taormina. Nice and clean room and lovely beds. Giuseppe and his staff was very helpful and very family oriented. I traveled with my daughter and my 2-years granddaughter.Fabulous breakfast buffè in a nearby Restaurant/Hotel.See you again in September.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Super location on the main street in Taormina where the shops and restaurants are located. close to the Greek Theatre.Ten to fifteen minutes walk to main bus station and to the funicular that brings you to the sea. Price is also a factor (breakfast is included and it offered tremenduous value. Finally the staff were extremely helpful and obliging, always having smiles on their faces! We were very pleased with this selection for our stay in Ttaormina.

            The hotel is located in a really good place. One thing which was not really convenient - the room had two floors, a bedroom and bathroom were on a second floor, so we had to carry a heavy luggage through narrow and steep steps. No wifi in the room, but you are able to use computer with internet in another hotel.
