wonderful hotel, great staff. breakfast was amazing. excellent setting and so close to all the sights
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
Breakfast excellent Parking difficult
In the oldtown, nice view, clean rooms, good price
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
very helpful guest, very nice location!
The location is fantastic, just by the sea, what's more very close to the bus stop (to Taormina) and railway station (Catania, Messina). The room and bathroom (big one) were very clean, the breakfast was rich, the owner very nice and helpful. We did like everything during our stay at Casa Famiani B&B
Everything excellent! With the ost kindly host of sicilie!
Very genial staff, cozy and clean rooms, excellent location. Buses and trains are just 50 meters from the hotel as the sea. Water on the public beach is clean, pebbled beach. At any time you can ask questions to the owner of hotel at which he will always be able to answer. It is very nice.First time stayed at the hotel B&B class and were satisfied.
We had a very nice stay at Casa Famiani. The breakfast was freshly prepared by our host each morning and we enjoyed the best cappuccino and fruit salad for breakfast. The room was very clean and our host was very friendly. Would definitely stay at Casa Famiani again next time we visit Sicily. No
The service was wonderful, very helpful. The beach is really close. Breakfast was great. Very nice bed and breakfast. Newly rennovated and well done. Would definately go back.
We found this b & b facility 100% plus in every way. It is a spotlessly clean and beautiful home in which to stay. The owner tends personally to the guests needs providing exactly what is requested for breakfast including the most delicious freshly squeezed freshly picked Blood Oranges. Nothing is too much trouble and he speaks fluent English. There is a small provisions shop within 50 meters. There was nothing detrimental in any way with this accommodation it was just fantastically good. Would we stay there again - yes we will it was a pleasure. You should definitely include this accommodation on your itinerary, very close to Taomina and Castelmola.
Feel like home, very nice. Good prices!
Very clean, very friendly staff. No exit from the highway, quite difficult to find without a navigation system.
Excellent location, next to the beach and near restaurants small breakfast
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
