Just come back from the above - and, broadly, the impression was very good, but there are a few drop-offs: Location: Quite Good, on a high backstreet at the southern end of the town, and about 5-10mins walk (downhill - coming back may take longer!) to the main street and shops, and this means you are nearer some of the...

Every time I am in Taormina, I stay at this hotel. it is just a few steps from the heart of the town, with stunning Mt Etna views. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and rather large by European Standards. The front desk staff is extremely helpful with hiring cars and booking excursions. I highly recommend this hotel.

The location of the hotel is nice and lovely.It is not very far from the centre of Taormina, infect you can walk it because it is a walking distance of 5 minutes. but the the interiors of the room they need refurbishment. The staff was also nice and helpful. The breakfast very good.

Stayed 3 nights here with my boyfriend recently. It was a lovely hotel in a great location. The rooms were slightly dated but very comfortable and well equipped. We had an Etna facing room (127) with a lovely little balcony with furniture, The breakfast was reasonably basic but good enough. There is no wifi in rooms. The staff spoke good...

We really loved our time at the Continental Hotel. We were met by friendly staff and shown to our room. The room was small, but it was clean and had a good air conditioner (a life saver in the Sicilian summer). This was a great hotel. The only thing we would comment on is the lack of parking - although...

The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is well placed near the centre of the Taormina which is accessed by the garden back gate. Being on a slope, the bedrooms are BELOW reception. Our hotel had a stunning view of Mt Etna which had a trail of molten lava running down the volcano clearly visible from my bed! The...

I stayed here for two days with my girlfriend. The location was ideal right next to city center and all the main sights. The view from the hotel is simply breathtaking. From one side you have the Etna volcano and on the other side the sea! All of the stuff was very helpfull and friendly. The room is very clean....

This hotel is just an all around perfect stay. Rooms are a bit small but cleaned to ammaculate perfection and very nice views from the balconies. Staff members were top and spoke english very well which is a plus in such a small town in sicily. I regret though to say that one particular staff member (an italian girl) working...

Clean rooms although a bit small (#143). We had a patio view - just OK. Walls are rather thin. Ask for room with balcony looking towards Mt. Etna. Good heater for cold February nights. Small but fast elevator to go DOWN to rooms and breakfast area. Use back gate through patio to access main part of Taormina.
