Excellent! It was a pleasure to be in such an historic hotel, which has retained much of it's charm but been updated to meet current guest expectations. The book describing the history of the Hotel, left in each visitor's room, is fascinating. The family continuity adds greatly to the understanding, enjoyment and ambience of the Villa. Leaving after so short a stay.
the location, the staff & the gardens
The staff at Hotel Villa Schuler are exceptional; well motivated, warm and friendly, intelligent and keen to help. Villa Schuler provides an a la carte breakfast service that works well when the (excellent) staff can cope, but they were overwhelmed on our first morning, when the hotel was full. The management should consider providing a buffet - at least for the breakfast essentials. The front desk recommendation of places to dine appeared motivated more by price (helping guests avoid being 'ripped off', which is important in Taormina) than quality - and included one resturant where quality was, in our experience, inferior.
wonderful hotel, great staff. breakfast was amazing. excellent setting and so close to all the sights
excellent wiev,beatiful gardens,unbelievable location,super breakfast,very kind and helpfull staff at recepsion desk the waiter at the breakfast time,young woman, was impolite and nervous,she was distressed us! plastic chairs at the balconies
A man stood outside waiting for us, asking our name and saying there were expecting us. Before we knew it, he had taken our heavy suitcases out of the car and into our room! On top of that, he took care of the car. The service was a breeze as well as the comfort of the room. German efficiency, thoroughness and cleanliness combined with the Mediterranean culture: excellent! 15 euro for parking is a lot, but necessary over there. It might be an idea though to park your car by the 'ski' lift, transporting people from the beach to Taormina center for 3 euro return. Walk from there, 200 metres from the centre.
The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The hotel had the most spectacular views and beautiful gardens. The breakfasts were delicious and served on a terrace overlooking the bay. Our room was a de luxe room, very large with sea views. The hotel is very central for the main part of Taormina but if you want the beach, for a small fee, there is a shuttle service provided to take you.
View (when I could see it) I chose larger room with view and tub - the air conditioning was not powerful too cool the room, even after the manager had an engineer "repair it". In order to get it cool enough I had to close the shutters leaving me with no view - even then the Temp at night was 28 degrees. Ants found in room and on bed. Manager also got lost his temper and shouted at me.
Breakfast excellent Parking difficult
In the oldtown, nice view, clean rooms, good price
The owners are wonderful and so accomodating. They makr the place great. The location is very close to the key tourist areas. Incredible views. Nice breakfast The room was nice but not luxurious. Could have had a bit nicer finishes to be truly stand out. Parking is tough but Antonio helps out. Hard to find.. make sure you pay attention to the owners welcome email
Loved staying here, awesome hosts, clean comfortable big room, beautiful ocean view from the common area, delicious locally sourced breakfasts. Davide and Lya were superb hosts, answered all my random questions and gave great food and city recommendations. Felt like we were staying with friends! Thank you!
Very beautiful villa and garden. Hospitality like coming home every day! Super homemade fresh breakfast. Nice view on the mount Etna from garden/terrace. Grazie mille e arriverderci! ----
Very attentive and friendly owners.Delicious breakfast, home cuisine -breakfast was like performance. It is a good place for relaxation and excursions. It is very gentle and refined house. Very big and comfortable balcony. There was a fridge in our room, it was important for us. Far from the beach. Near the road - noisily by the nights.
Beautiful house. Excellent accomodations. It is a private house turned into a B&B, and that should be made clearer in the site. People gave us royal treatment. Could not be any better!
The B&B was neat and clean, the surrounding area was beautiful and the view of Mt. Etna was amazing!!! The hosts were great...breakfast every morning, they helped us with directions to local areas, and made us feel at home!!!
The setting. The welcome. A bit of noise from nearby construction work.
What a place. It is the hostess’ generational family home and is a virtual 18th-19th century museum, with art and statuary everywhere. Although she spoke little English, she took us on a grand tour and we communicated fairly well. We were on the second floor, in a big suite with sitting area, all antique furniture, and have a large terrace that looks over the garden and on to Mt Etna. Very quiet. We walked to the waterfront and all the restaurants in about 15 minutes. Parking on site inside the wall of their villa. Small refrigerator in room. Excellent breakfast on the terrazzo. Very convenient to drive to Taormina for the day. No restaurant close by.
Very charming and helpful hostess Poor condition of facilities. Specifically toilet seat falling off. This should be fixed
This is a classy, antique villa, a great retreat with a wonderful garden. It is excellently located to visit Taormina, and very close to the beach (which it is clean, white sand, clear waters). From the terrasse one can see the beautiful Etna, and hear the romantic church bells. The landlords are extremelly helpfull, they gave us all indications and details on what to vist and where to eat. The breakfast is excellent - tasty & fresh - and it is served by the Lady of the house. Nothing bothered us, we thank a lot for the hospitality!
It's an old Villa with many antiques, very roomy, relatively quiet, good breakfast, great views of Mt. Etna when it's clear. The owners don't speak word of English. The B&B is listed with an address in Taormina. Hardly!! It was extremely difficult to find and we had Google Map directions. We drove around for 1/2 hour searching. That's because it is no where near Taormina. It's at least 10 minutes by car in a beach town called Giardini Naxos--which is not a destination spot. The B&B is safe and gated, but in a terrible location in the middle of a crappy city.
