We found the staff at the HVC so friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with Prosecco and a run down of the sites in Taormina. The rooms, while small, were beautifully appointed. We would highly recommend!

Most beautiful luxury boutique hotel in Taormina.

This hotel is very special and is perfectly located to town.The view is beautiful. The staff in the hotel is amazing and very helpful. We went in March with my 74 year old mom and 19 year old daughter. The food was amazing as well. We can't wait to go back. Everyone must see Taormina and stay at the Hotel Villa Carlotta.

Fantastic hotel - but avoid room 101
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is a beautiful hotel with helpful staff. The breakfast was great with spectacular views around Taormina and of Mt Etna.

However, room 101, our room, didn’t match with the standards of the rest of the hotel:
1) this room is on the ground floor and located right by the reception. We could hear everyone walking past, particularly people in high heels. We could even hear some of the conversations taking place outside and at the reception. Not a room if you want to avoid noise.
2) the shower leaks and spread water from one end of the bathroom to the other. I had left my clothes on the floor and they were soaked through. We were told it is a new shower... so perhaps it’s teething problems.
3) it was between 25C and 26C in our room in the evening. We were told the only way to cool the room was to open the balcony door. The air con was apparently just for heating the room.
4) perhaps this is being picky, but the lighting is dark and unsuitable for reading in bed.

In short, I would stay at Hotel Villa Carlotta again if I could avoid room 101.

I cried when we had to leave.
