    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Schuler Taormina

    A great place to stay

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Highly recommend!

    from

    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.

    Fabulous!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Great

    from

    The Villa Schuler is a very friendly hotel with an excellent service.

    The rooms are wounderfull, the garden is very loveley...

Well, I enjoyed it, at least; the guys looked pretty annoyed. I haven't been able to get the song "Volare" out of my head since! We continued our stroll after dinner and stopped for gelato. So good!

    After the guide stopped we walked by ourselves and just wandered around.

    When we were going Riley, Zara and I grabbed 2 rocks from the volcano and took them with us.
    And I am hoping I could at least bring 1 home to show you all and tell you all about it.

    And then we walked through the town this one is properly one of my favorites because it looks awesome.

    We then caught a fun cable car ride up to 2500m.

    From there we climbed in a special 4wd bus to take us to the official crater zone at 2920m.

    You feel like you are on a movie set of Mars, with black lava gravel, rocks and ash.

    It was awesome walking around an area that had only last erupted in 2002.

    Amazing!

    Messina, italy

    A travel blog entry by cassie.goehring on Jun 20, 2015

    Today our first stop was in Messina, Italy. This is a port that we visited last time we went on our Mediterranean cruise. We decided to do a little exploring on our own this time. We rented a little car ( as you do when you are in Italy). The streets are very narrow and roads aren't that great so it definitely was an experience! We decided to drive to a beach about an hour from the port. We had to drive around for quit some time to find a parking spot and then walked down to the beach in ...
