My wife and I stayed at the Belvedere for my 60th birthday ( June 2009 ) and and really enjoyed our stay there, I would advise getting a room high up with a terrace, we were on the third floor overlooking the bay and as the hotel name suggests — Belvedere — lovely sight. the room was smallish but not to much of a problem, bathroom small with shower but again ok! the only thing that I could say was a bit of a pain was the size of the wardrobe. the hanging space was a bit short, it consisted of about 4 drawers with the safe on top, ok if you are hanging tops/ skirts etc but if you have anything longer — my wife had some long summer dresses and they had to be hung on the doors. but these are minor problems because the view from the terrace was fantastic the gardens of the hotel were beautiful and well tended and the seaview was brilliant with various cruise ships in the bay and private cruisers of all sizes and to our right was the stunПing Etna. snow capped by day and glowing at night.
Just a short distance along the road was the Public Gardens really nice for a stroll before going up into the narrows streets which were lined with many restaurants and I mean MANY. but we mostly ate at the Giardino opposite the Public Gardens good value food and a peaceful setting with nice staff.
Unique Quality: This hotel was brilliant. the staff were really helpful and friendly nothing was to much trouble, the beakfast room was excellent with a wide range of quality food and coffee to die for. also the maids were all really nice and had a ready smile when ever you saw them, the pool was very popular and also the sun terrace.
Directions: This hotel is on one of the lower streets of Taormina near the Public Gardens and the tennis courts, it is a one way street so it would be good to keep your eyes ard ears open for the SCOOTERS.
