average stay
If you like to adventure Taormina stay in the city of Taormina. Commute is inconvenient from hotel location with bus hourly times ending at midnight. Hotel was not smoke free and air conditioning was broken so worked very little

Nice hotel.
Very nice hotel close to the sea front. Excellent staff. The hotel is close to bus stops and not far from the Taormina Railway Station.

'Sea view' disappointing
The best thing about this hotel is that it is close to the Interbus bus stop taking you to Taoramina, Catania and Siracusa. The photo of the sea view room is just a bit deceiving - there are two very busy roads and buildings between you and the sea and not very relaxing sitting out in the balcony - as soon as you open the patio doors you are hit by the noise. We did, however, have prime position for the Easter procession to the church. The staff are pleasant and the room clean. There are no coffee making facilities. The breakfast seems typical for Sicily - cheese, ham, breads, cake, cereal, yoghurt

Highly Recommended
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
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.
