We stayed here for a week over new year 2016. We cannot recommend this hotel enough. We loved every minute. The view from our balcony was spectacular and the view from breakfast totally awe inspiring. The staff were lovely and the hotel very comfortable. The bathroom could do with a slight improvement but the overall room (which was huge) and the view more than made up for it. Would recommend to anyone who wants a comfortable stay in a great location (quiet off the main pedestrianised road). We will definitely be back!!!
We spent two nights at the hotel and we have no complaints. The room was very nice, new modern furniture and all the hotel seems to have had a recent remodeling. It feels very fresh and new. Breakfast was included and it was very nice. The beach is right across the street. If you want to go to Taormina you can take the steps ( a 35 minute arduous uphill walk) or take a bus. The cable car that used to take you to Taormina was under repair. We paid a little more to have the oceanfront balcony room and the view was absolutely stunning. Take a look at my picture. I would highly recommend this hotel. For about $100 we had a very nice, I would call it even luxurious accommodation. I would stay again if visiting Taormina.

This hotel is the perfect place to stay at when touring Taormina! It has parking, a pool, gardens and is a 10 minute walk (uphill) to the main attractions and shopping streets. The hotel is located on a hill so you have many levels to walk up and down, however there is an elevator of which opens up into a cave when going to some of the rooms. We were three adults and were upgraded to a family suite which was perfect! It overlooked the pool, had a terrace with lime and lemon trees, had a bedroom with a King, a bedroom with two Twins, kitchenette and 1.5 bathrooms! The hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive! The bar is open 24 hours and the bartender we had was super! The breakfast (November) opened at 07:30, but we needed to leave for the airport earlier than that. The hotel was accommodating and had staff there to provide breakfast when we requested! I will most certainly be returning to stay at this hotel!!
"Nice hotel but rather old fashioned & too few staf"
Hotel was fine; staff were stretched and not very attentive. Location was reasonable - good if you have a car but otherwise a 20 min walk to the bus terminus. When we stayed at the hotel it had an 'end of season feel' about it and only had a skeleton staff which was a shame.

I went with my sister to this hotel which is located in the centre of Taormina, it is a delight and I would throroughly recommend. If you love amazing restaurants and shops, fashion and culture, people watching and being able to visit a range of excellent tourist attractions such as Mount Etna and all the amazing churches, theatres, villages etc etc. I could go on forever. It is really worth experiencing and I cannot find a negative to our weeks stay.

Casa Cuseni is a magical place. The gardens are so beautiful and its perch high on a hill overlooking Taormina provides spectacular panoramas of the entire coastline. Our balcony framed a perfect view of Mt. Etna from base to sputtering top. It was so quiet we could imagined how life in the house felt in the early 1900's when it was first built.
And I must praise the hard-working, committed staff. Francesco, Clelia, Mimma, Angelina and the rest of the staff really extend themselves to make sure that guests are comfortable and make the most of their time in and around Taormina. Clelia booked us a fabulous trip up Mt. Etna with Paolo of EtnaPeople.
A balcony setting on Mount Tauro with a sweeping view of Sicily’s coastline and Mount Etna gives Taormina its lasting appeal. It is Sicily’s only truly international resort, much-favoured by celebrities. The old quarter’s steep, narrow alleys are filled with window boxes and painted pottery, and best explored on foot. Main sights are the classical remains and Renaissance palaces. The Greco-Roman theatre is still used for concerts and festivals.
