About This Listing
Apartment refitted in 2014! Compared to the reviews of past years, where some people complained about the smell of a wine cellar and high humidity has been found, and placed the cause of the problem, pretty much a waste positioned badly! Just above the cathedral of Taormina, the house is perfect for a couple who wants to spend a romantic week in the beautiful Taormina. I added a sofa bed for children up to 14 years (because the house is small)! There is a small kitchen, a bath, an air conditioner, that while dehumidifying, cooling or heating depending on the season. The house has a basement and all the houses in the center of Taormina have the problem of being wet because the walls are 70 cm thick ... Also the water heater is now 30 lt. someone complained that the hot water ran out quickly! Now there is enough for 3 people!
The flat is at the complete disposal of the guests, the sofa bed has a mesh and is very comfortable! For any child can use an ottoman that turns into a bed!
Interaction with Guests
If you arrive from the train station in Giardini, I can see to take you on to Taormina, where do I get the car ..
The house is on a small street on the course, then away from the main nightlife! But very close to it, in fact just behind a building will be on the course! Just in Piazza Duomo!
E' permesso fumare all'interno, ed è permesso portare animali domestici se ben abituati!
Giulio was an excellent host, very charming and helpful.
The accommodation itself was good, not the most luxurious flat, but fine for our needs.
The location on the other hand was amazing, right in the centre of beautiful Taormina (but very quiet) and surrounded by hundreds of restaurants and cafes!!
Les plus :
Giullio est très gentil et accueillant
Bon prix pour Taormina
Les moins :
Appartement très sombre, situé un peu façon cave car les fenêtres (petites)sont au niveau du sol de la rue.
Aucun soin apporté à l’appartement (moquette à peine posée, pas d’aménagement particulier…) ce qui donne un aspect sale à l’appartement.
=>Pour info, nous avons été réveillés en pleine nuît pour une canalisation qui a pété sous l’évier et nous avons dû tout stopper et nettoyer car c’était l’inondation !
En résumé, malgré la gentillesse de Giullio je ne conseillerais pas cet appartement avant qu’il fasse de bons travaux car il pourrait avoir du potentiel mais n’est pas du tout bien exploité.
Grazie della recensione, la moquette purtroppo è stata una pessima scelta, infatti molti ospiti hanno lasciato il secchio del condizionatore straripare su di essa e naturalmente bagnandosi appare più scura... comunque al più presto la sostituisco! ;) Anche dove c'è stata la fuoriuscita d'acqua ho provveduto a mettere un rubinetto migliore con flessibili più resistenti! Comunque anche io sconsiglio l'appartamento al popolo francesce, e agli italiani! Purtroppo sono gli unici che si siano lamentati finora!! XD
Thanks for the review , the carpet unfortunately was a bad choice, in fact many guests left the bucket of conditioner overflowing on it and of course it appears darker ... anyway as soon I'll change it ! Even where there has been leakage of water I proceed to put a better tap with more resistant flexible ! However, I also do not recommend the apartment to Francesce and Italians citizen! Unfortunately they are the only ones who are moaning !!
Appartement bien situé dans la jolie ville de taormina, idéal pour un jeune couple. Giulio a été très accueillant et agréable.
Giulio ha sido muy gentil y agradable con nosotros. El departamento es pequeño, para gente joven. Hay mucha humedad dentro del cuarto, lo que lo hace un poco molesto a la hora de estar dentro, especialmente en verano.
El baño es pequeño y la cocina comoda.
Gulio made a good impression on us. He was friendly, helpful, kind and sympathetic. The apartment is really small, there is moisture in it. Bathroom small, connected to the toilet. The hot water did not have a problem, but the infusion clogged and the water went down very slowly. Moisture feel quite intensively for a long time which may disturb you. The owner is trying to remedy insert AC. Due to the price of the apartment is good for young people, do not require comfortu people. Great location, quiet yet close to the city center.
I spent 5 days in Giulio apartment in Taormina. Before arriving I was worried taking into account some recent comments I read and some personal allergic problems.
However my stay at the Apt was not unpleasant.
First of all Giulio is a young man trying to do the best he can …
He was waiting for me at the train station when I arrived and he provide the transport to town.
The Apartment is really very basic with a room of about 14m2 and a corner kitchen wc/shower of about 6m2..To enter the room coming from the street there are 2 steps down. The apt is located in an old building and the walls have a thickness of about 70 cm..The exposition to the sun occurs only in a lateral way in a very short time. Small window in the room another one smaller in the WC.
Taking into account the previous description I can remark
1- there are some residual humidity but this it was not a real problem to stay inside
2- the temperature inside the apt is quite pleasant. A fan was enough to sleep very well
The apart is in an extra location: If we go down right side in less than one minute we arrive to the Piazza del Duomo Square to the Corso Umberto. If we follow left side we arrive to the extra steps of Palazzo Ciampoli and Corso Umberto.
Next to the apt a 5 star hotel in the Palazzo.
Concerning the absence of wifi it was not a problem. Next there are some coffee houses namely CAFA where wifi is free and one express cost 1 Euro.
So the apart is really very basic but the fridge cooking plate and heating water systems are new and the bed is OK: The Heating system provides hot water for a 5 minutes shower and for the next it is necessary to wait 20 minutes but this not a problem.
I found the 40 Euros a day I paid correct taking into account location and prices of hotels in Taormina.
It would be possible to improve the conditions of the Apt with some minor technical and décor modifications. Last day of my stay Guilio came to the apt with a new AC/DEH portable system that for sure is going to solve the humidity problems and to improve the level of comfort.
To conclude I think that should be more appropriate to say
APT IN A TAORMINA LOVELY LOCATION
I can recommend the Apt to young people and for those not so young as myself that can accept to stay in a place with the conditions that I honestly try to describe in a fair way.
