What a nice placefrom G44
greatest 4 star place in Italyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Feel like royalty!from Linkys
The buffet breakfast was great = bircher muesli, fresh fruit, followed by prosciutto and cheese, and finish with a wonderful selection of fresh Italian cakes, and of course delicious Italian coffee. The setting is the best - a view over the sea and imposing Mt Etna. We savoured each and every breakfast.
We found the location excellent. It was a 10 minute stroll to the main street and great restaurants. It also has a bus stop right outside from where the bus to Mt Etna (SAT company) picked us up for a day tour. The local bus also takes you from that stop down the hill to Giardini Naxos. The bus from Catania airport will also stop at that stop if you ask. You will see Villa Fabbiano on a corner as you are coming up on the hill. As the bus turns the tight corner there is a bus stop "Fermata" where you get off and walk less than 1 minute back to the hotel. Very convenient.
All in all - I highly recommend this hotel.
Lovely hotelfrom AlisonApple
Our only very marginal disappointment was the pool. Reading the reviews we had expected it to be small but hadn't expected only 7 beds actually in the sun (another 6 in compete shade all day) so get there early if you want to sunbathe! There is a small garden and this could be used to put more beds but the staff seemed reluctant to do this. There was also a bar at the pool but it was never open and although drinks could be ordered by telephone, a bar would have been nice to sit outside during the day and in the evening pre going out.
Taormina is absolutely beautiful with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The beach is also worth a look and the hotel can arrange transport if you don't fancy the cable car. Would definitely stay in Taormina and Villa Fabbiano again. Ps if you are thinking of travelling Alitalia, recommend against it - they were dreadful and we still have not recovered our luggage!

Lovely Small and Intimate Hotel - Great Servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms were adequately sized and were air conditioned (although ours struggled once to keep up with the 40 C heat outside - which isn't bad I suppose). The interior of the hotel is "old worldy" and Gothic in appearance and even incorporates part of the ancient Roman necropolis in one of the communal rooms and at the pool area. The breakfast area is on the roof of the building and commands fantastic panoramic views of the sea, the coast along towards Catania, Giarre and the nearby Giardini Naxos. Also has excellent views of Mount Etna. The hotel is also close to a viewing point from which you can see the Isola Bella and Mazzaro beach area. You can also access the steps down to the beach from here or alternatively take the cable car (3.00 Euros return) from just a little further up the road.
The staff at the hotel speak English, French, Italian and German fluently and were very friendly and always happy to help. Daniel, was very helpful and, after e-mailing him prior to travelling he even helped me arrange to have some flowers sent to our room on arrival for my girlfriend's birthday.
Taormina is a great place to holiday with a huge selection of restaurants. Although the hotel serves lunches, we tended to eat fairly cheaply at lunch time buying great sandwiches (aubergine, spicy mushrooms, olives, Italian cheeses and ham etc in great Italian bread) from a delicatessen just five minutes walk away (Mamma Mia's I think it was called) or hot panini's from nearby cafe bars.
All in all a great holiday.

Top Local Tips for Taormina
Sicily in spring Springtime is definitely the time for Sicily - April/May, when there is less rain and a warm sun but not the blistering dry summer. The scent of Zagara (orange blossoms) is intoxicating. In Taormina, don't miss the Roman Theater and a drive up Mt. Etna.
Getting Around is Fun We walked - careful of Motorcycles & Scooters. WE also took taxi's and booked car & driver for sightseeing. Getting around was not a problem and always fun and interesting.
