The hotel serves as an annex to the nearby Hotel Ariston, where you will find a pool with a sun terrace, 24-hour reception, a restaurant and bar. Taormina's historic centre is a busy place with many tourists and souvenir shops by day and also pretty crowded during the evenings. You can take the cable car up and down to the beach.
One can arrive at the hotel by car, but in reality it is not necessary to get around here. The monastery is surrounded by a large park with tall, century-old trees. The lush vegetation means that it interrupts the sea view in places in spite of the monastery being located on the slope of the hillside. Thus there is not a sea view from the rooms.
You can find the reception, restaurant, bar, internet point, swimming pool with sun terrace and other facilities all located in Hotel Ariston, a few steps up the hill. The hotel has a long history and a good reputation among the many who choose to holiday in Taormina year after year.
At Palazzo Santa Cristina, there are 27 rooms which all have a balcony, satellite TV, a mini-bar, a safety deposit box, a coffee / tea maker and a private bathroom with a toilet and shower and hair dryer.
