        Having read some reviews after I booked I was becoming a bit concerned with my choice; however, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Villa Greta was a good choice. The room was spacious though "dated" - hey it's a 2-star hotel, so I'm not expecting anything chic. The room was comfortable and clean. The view was very nice. The staff was friendly and efficient - Elena in particular is extremely helpful. A predictable breakfast; coffee, cereal, juice, croissant, meat or cheese (never both) was included and provided enough energy to start the day. On our first morning a menu was provided for some more traditional breakfast fare (eggs, sausage, etc.) but I did not order it and never saw that menu for the next 3 days. Free shuttle to/from the beach - be aware; beach fee is 7 euros per person (includes umbrella, chair, towel if needed).

        The steps to and from downtown Taormina are best enjoyed on the downward journey - be prepared for the return! Great exercise, but if you're not fit or have any lower joint problems, I could NOT recommend this hotel unless you have a car, moped, or taxi. Even at that, the hotel itself is on a steep hillside, so there are also a lot of steps to navigate within the grounds - NOT handicap accessible/friendly. If you are coming in via train or bus, find a taxi - we saw some poor souls hoofing it up the hill only to realize 20 minutes after our arrival that they were bound for Villa Greta - all I could think was sun stroke!

        Perfect location and view on Etna mountain. Close to the Taormina city center. Posibility for parking the car on private parking in affordable price (7 EUR/night).

        In order to get to Taormina city center you need to step over quite difficult stairs, so not for older people. Breakfast quite simple: bread and ham/cheese.

        Hotel has a nice view of Mount Etna, located close to bus station.

        Poor breakfast (portioned)

        Toarmina is a fabulous city and Villa Greta is a good budget hotel with spectacular view over the city, the sea and etna. The staff if very friendly, the breakfast is very good (for being italian), you can walk to the city center in 10 minutes. (alot of stairs on the way home). The hotel has not been refurbished in a while and shower/wc was small. But its a pricewothy hotel.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The family (owners) are extremely helpful (with luggage, parking, directions, advice). The view from the ristorante is superb. We were able to access wifi from the dining area. It's possible to walk down to the town via stairways (rather than on the road) and to get a not-frequent bus. The food in the ristorante is of a very high standard and we highly recommend it. Breakfast also was pleasant. Our room was plain but functional (with small shower), with no real view (because of the lush foliage) and aircon was poor but we were able to open windows. Parking is available as paid, but you may be able to get it on the street.

      • Older travelers

        Location could be a issue for some persons, as it is a 10 minute walk to town all down hill and a steep return. But it is worth it for the lovely views! From the hotel. There is a local bus, with a limited timetable.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        The staff was excellent! We really enjoyed being away from town. The walk to and from was an excellent way of burning off the gelato we consumed! Our kids even did great making the walk. Just find the shortcut and you will be fine!

        The hotel is not knew, but is well situated on the upper part of the hill, with beautiful view over Taormina bay and Etna volcano. The hotel staff is very informative and excellent professional quality. The kitchen was delicious - breakfast and ordered dinner. Has a paid garage at the next yard.

      • Single

        A good view from room

        I like walking but it is a fair walk to the centre if u dont like to walk.

      • Couple
        4.2

        Nice views to marvellous Naxos Bay from the restaurant. Freindliness of italian staff.

        Small room, noisy, uncortable beds. For spanish standards, it is a very expensive accomodation concerning what it offers for the price yo pay.

      • Couple
        7.8

        Nice location and great views up from being set on the hills of Taormina. Felt very homely - rooms spread out on different levels and little balcony areas to relax and enjoy the view.

        Room was a bit basic and small and the breakfast was average. But good value for money given location.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Reasonable location in the city.

        Our room was noisy, the shutters and windows were old style and did not close properly. The bed mattress was upside down and hence very uncomfortable -could feel the springs and it was soiled. The breakfast room was not big enough for the number of guests when full.

      • Single
        7.0

        very nice view at the sea and Etna from the room with balcony, nice traditional breakfast served at table at open terrace room with same view, friendly staff

        quite thin-walled

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Nice balcony

        Air condition a bit too strong and cannot be tuned

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        Excellent views of Mt Etna, Giardini-Naxos and the sea. A longish but pleasant walk to the center of Taormina.

        Difficult to load and off-load baggage from the top street. A lot of steps to climb to get to the hotel from he bottom street. Good way to keep fit.
