Highly Recommended

Posted 26-Jul-2017
My wife and I are from Thunder Bay ( Marisa and Frank) and spent 2 days here with friends from Toronto in July of 2017. The hotel is in a good location convenient for the beach and plenty of restaurants in the area. The room was a good size and is extremely clean, and was kept clean throughout our stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout our stay. They offered a good continental selection for breakfast which was more than adequate. The location is easy to get to with the bus stop very close to the Hotel and only 10 minutes from the train station. Location is also is exceptional for easy access to the private beach, which is just across the street for a relaxing day in the sun. If you wish to enjoy a great dinner, we recommend Lido da Angelo Giardini Naxos right across the street from the hotel, in front of the bus stop, Great service and beautiful sea views , the food is not only inexpensive but tasty and large portions, they specialize in fish dishes, with authentic Sicilian cuisine. Overall, we highly recommend Hotel San Giovanni.

Lovely hotel with great sea views

Posted 03-Jun-2017
Pros: The sea view room was excellent with an outside patio to sit and enjoy the views. The staff were first class and the breakfast was very good.
Cons: The shower door may need some repair but other than that I have no complaints.
Location: The location was excellent with great access to other parts of the island. There were also some great walks along the coast line to Taormina.
Lovely little bijou hotel with great sea views from the front rooms. The hotel staff were excellent and provided us with all the information requested. Great bus service from the airport to the hotel and back at a very reasonable cost. The tour of Etna is not to be missed. We would be very happy to return in the future.

We got off the bus from catania airport and found the hotel right across the street, very convenient. There are trains running nearby, but not frequently and not overnight.

Hotel in the heart of town

Posted 12-May-2010
I enjoyed this hotel. I wish there was parking but the hotel accomodated me for my stay which was very nice of them. The hotel is perfectly located in Giardini and is a 15 euro taxi to Taormina from the Naxos train station and a 20 euro taxi return from Excelsior Hotel in Taormina. I enjoyed all the shops and tons of free beach space and lidos. Next time, bring ear plugs because it is on the main road heading out of town and the traffic never stops. The breakfast and staff were wonderful. Take cash... credit card machines are always down in Sicily. I would stay again. We had a room with a balcony that offered a wonderful view of the ocean.

Piccolo albergo vicino al mare

Posted 21-Jul-2017
Pros: Posizione e cordialità del personale
Cons: Manca la hall, ma non se ne sente la mancanza
Albergo in ottima posizione centrale a 50 metri dalla spiaggia e dalla fermata autobus per Taormina a cui ci si arriva in 10 minuti. Stanza non enorme, ma non manca nulla. Colazione per tutti i gusti con ottimi cornetti.

Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo

Posted 14-Jun-2017
Pros: Nessuna pecca importante da evidenziare
Cons: Wifi
Location: La spiaggia più vicina è a 200 metri
Il personale prevalentemente femminile da quel tocco di grazia, educazione e disponibilità che tutti gli Hotel a gestione familiare dovrebbero avere. CONSIGLIATO!
