Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Schuler Taormina
A great place to stay
We enjoyed our three nights at Villa Schuler in Taormina this October. The weather was hot and we appreciated staying in a junior suite with a big sea facing terrace with sunbeds. Some of the other sea facing rooms had just a small balcony. It was lovely looking over the bay watching the cruisers arriving. We even watched some fireworks on our last night!
The room was fine although you walk into it through the bathroom area and some people may find the beds hard! Our room had air conditioning. The staff were helpful and we really enjoyed the breakfasts sitting out on a terrace with a stunning view and a great choice of food. The fruit was particularly delicious.
At the back of the hotel is a pretty garden. Walk through this and up some steps and you are straightaway in the main pedestrianised street where there are lots of resturants and shops and people but the hotel is quiet.
You can explore the town, Mount Etna or take a cable car to the beach easily from this hotel. A great place to stay in Sicily.

A rare find
Would have to agree with the other reviews here. We stayed for 5 days in July and fell in love with Taormina and Villa Schuler. It is situated in one of the best spots - fabulous views and one of the most centrally yet privately located places in the area.
We were in an end room (13?) on level 1 which had great views off the balcony. The room was simply furnished (a little old but ok), comfortable and clean. It had beautiful tiled floors throughout. The bathroom again was older style but clean and spacious. The room is airconditioned which is a plus when it is hot. Although there is no pool we did not find this a drawback as spent a good amount of time on the beach. A short walk down the street through the old town we were able to catch the cable car down to one of the beaches close by.
The old town centre is in easy reach which is great at night to stroll.
The hotel itself is a gorgeous building and recently renovated. The gardens are beautiful and create that extra space. The area for breakfast is as good as it gets with fab views. The breakfast provides a generous start to the day - would recommend as I'd be beack - enjoy!
What a find, even if there wasn't a pool; I prefer the beaches on vacations anyways. The hotel is very nice, comfortable, cosy and clean, and the staff so helpful and friendly. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the bay and Mt. Etna is stunning. The garden at the back is huge and very relaxing if you ever get tired of the sea views; I doubt you will. I highly recommend the Junior Suites on the third floor (I stayed in room 29), which have the best views, a terrace with awning and two sun loungers, bedroom and a separate sitting area. Bathroom, however, was a bit small and simple, but easily overlooked with all the other positives of the hotel. The location is superb as well, as it is only a few steps from the Corso Umberto, where most shops and restaurants are located, and also a great place for evening strolls. Do also check out the smaller streets and alleys as they also have plenty of quaint shops, restaurants and avoid the general crowds on the Corso. The bus terminal, funicular (cable car), public garden and Greek Ampitheatre are a short 5-10 mins walk away. The hotel is so central to everything it's perfect. Every restaurant we tried served a delicious and very filling meal and there were more than enough gellaterias serving incredible and mouth-watering gellatos (ice cream); I miss it all already. Definitely going back and am recommending to all my friends and family.
Wow wow wow! this place is incredible. We stayed for 3 days in the room with an ocean view... great balcony, great bed, great everything! felt like heaven after being in dirty, polluted Rome. Breakfast is AWESOME - overlooking the sea- the folks who run this and who work here are so nice and helpful and pleasant. One day i just relaxed in the courtyard/garden... so peaceful. This place is so worth the money, get the nice room with the view, you will be glad you did!
Wonderful way to start a vacation
We couldn't have found a more lovely or convenient spot to start our vacation. The hotel is charming, clean and nicely appointed; very pleasant staff at reception, at breakfast and all other hotel staff.
Breakfast, with much choice, on the terrace overlooking the Bay of Naxos and Mt. Etna is magnificent and we were blessed with good weather and all the fragrant spring blossoms.
We decided to try the Junior Suite accommodations on the top floor and were not disappointed; nice terrace with awning, bedroom and a separate sitting area, although the bathroom accommodations were a little different yet adequate. Most other rooms have small balconies some of which you cannot walk or sit out on.
The location is ideal - just a few steps up through their lovely garden at the rear to the Corso Umberto for shopping, eating and sights of Taormina. A short walk to the bus terminal and funicular to the beaches.
Eating recommendations from the staff were excellent (1) Tiramis u was very reasonable and (2) a Zamarra offered a very special farewell dinner; both restaurants were full of local patrons.
Would return again and also recommend to anyone.
Sicily gets a bad rap!
We have just returned from a trip to Sicily and feel that it certainly has a reputation that is not justified. We had a wonderful time, people were friendly and helpful despite the fact that we could not speak Italian.The Villa Schuller Hotel for example was clean, good value, perfectly situated and served a wonderful breakfast high up overlooking the water. The back has a gorgeous garden through which you walk up to the main street where every evening there is the best 'passigiato'. If you don't know what that is - look it up. We drove all around the island and found the same attitude everywhere even in Palarmo. I would return anytime.Sheila Kerr
Nice Garden, Bad room
We thought the villa itself was pretty and clean, with nice gardens, but got sick of not having a pool. It was incredibly hot when we visited, and the beach (by cable car or by shuttle bus) was a real hassle. Also, we had the worst room, #1, in a ground level courtyard.
It was very dark, and after a few days made us feel trapped in a bomb shelter. We left early and switched to another hotel. We also felt that the staff, while polite, was not overly friendly or helpful.
The Villa Schuler is a very friendly hotel with an excellent service.
The rooms are wounderfull, the garden is very loveley...

... were more great views back down to the coast from the tiny clifftop church above Taorima. After an extensive search, Sandra, Frank and I purchased a selection of deli items and we all enjoyed a platter back on our balcony at the hotel, with the backdrop of the coastline below and Mt Etna, with the plume of smoke rising from the top. Before our farewell dinner a few of us watched the ...
First impressions of Sicily weren't very positive as we assumed the metered taxi would charge us the correct fair, but it was at least double what what it should have been, and the drive to the hotel wasn't impressive. Fortunately things got better. The city has some beautiful buildings, although it can take a bit of adjusting to the dark grey lava stone, which is an abundant building material provided by the still ...
... top, we walked along the edge next to two craters, I had lunch at this stop (arancini, coffee and canoli cake). Nice sunny day today. We spent some time waiting for the English people to get back to the bus, thought we had lost them! Next stop was an underground cave, we were issued with a hard hat and torch. Last stop was to ...
Breakfast in the hotel, great breakfast at this hotel, home made croissants etc. This hotel is in a great position with great views, just a little tired, the rooms need updating. We walked to the chairlift to get it to the top where the ancient town of Taormina is, we walked around and took photos and had lunch at the Trattoria Piazza Badia, very nice meal. Lunch was antipasto with ...
... Our hotel here was called the Isola Bella named after the area where it was located. We got into the lift to go up to Reception but it seemed faulty as the lights were blinking on and off so we got out and took the stairs ( a day of lifting suitcases on and off trains and up and down stairs - well done Peter). We checked into our room and had a well deserved drink in the lobby. Sue had trouble sleeping due to the noisy traffic ...
