I LOVED staying at Dolphin Guest House. I was made to feel extremely welcome from the moment I arrived. Travelling solo, my room was small, yet I had a private bathroom along the hall, and was invited to use the kitchen, terraces and lounge if I chose. A lovely, homely environment that I enjoyed. The establishment is located in a... More

Agoda, booking.com and Google all show not precise location of the guest house. Please find the uploaded map for more precise location and it will be useful if you arrive late in night and search in the dim street. Very nice host and helpful. It is a very fid choice for budget travel with private room.

Clean & comfortable room and good WiFi - but with a tiny bed. But no complaints, as its a great value for money, in a convenient location and a very helpful host who gave great suggestions and was very helpful in providing detailed directions & shortcuts. The house, as the name suggests, is multiple occupancy with different amenities available at... More

Having arrived late in Taormina with nowhere booked we were delighted to find this gem. The extremely helpful owner arrived within minutes, assisted us with parking, the sights and places of interest nearby. A beautiful town and a pleasant stay.

Three of those nights were spent in the top floor, air conditioned apartment, which has a huge patio offering an unforgettably gorgeous view of the surrounding town, coastline below, the sea and the Italian mainland. There is a fully equippend en suite... More

Yes, there IS an inexpensive place to stay in Taormina and it is 'The Dolphins Guest House'. Located on a quiet side street, this flat has a large living/dining room with a balcony that overlooks a peaceful garden with great views of the ocean. Because I was alone in the home for the evening I did not mind that the... More

There are plenty of choices when it comes to accommodations in Taormina - but budget accommodations right in the heart of town are a little harder to come by. For its price and location, The Dolphin Guest House was perfect. However, my only "complaint" (not a big one, though) was that for the duration of my stay, I didn't see... More
