We stayed here as part of a Road Scholar trip to Taormina. The hotel was clean, comfortable, great view from the lounge patio, and the bathroom was clean, great shower, and had a wild nightlight. This hotel is very convenient. The breakfast was delicious. The breakfast cakes were homemade using yogurt, and the ricotta was delicious. There was fresh oranges...

This is a really nice hotel - perfectly located with steps down to the main thoroughfare. Clean, if small, rooms with fabulous views over the chimneys and roofs of Taormina right out to the sea. Complimentary waters every day were great. A beautiful rooftop terrace with a bar and panoramic views. The breakfast was excellent - good selection. The staff...

Modern hotel situated against the hillside overlooking the bay. Our room was very contemporary with the most comfortable beds we experienced while traveling in Sicily, an up to date bathroom, and a small balcony with a view overlooking the neighbors’ gardens and out over the sea. The hotel has a beautiful terrace on the main floor with fabulous views and...

This is a medium-sized clean and tidy hotel. The location is excellent, just at the end of the main street with all the shops and restaurants. Taormina is a very touristy kind of place, so perhaps not "real" Sicily but perhaps pleasanter than some of the other cities on this side of the island. From this side of the medieval...

Clean and comfortable rooms with lovely staff. A longish walk from bus terminal, but pleasant enough to do if only light luggage. Taxi to train station is 15 euro. Massive terrace with sweeping views but also near a busy pizzeria and town square for watching street life Sicilian style.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Continental. It was a convenient location to get to all the wonderful shops and restaurants on Corso Umberto. The staff was very friendly and helpful with questions, and even offered me an espresso when I had an early tour and couldn't make it in time for breakfast. The breakfast was also nice...

We were informed when we arrived that we had been given a room upgrade. The room was a good size and had a lovely little balcony which we used quite a lot to enjoy the weather and drink a glass of red wine! The shower had mood lighting and was a lovely feature. The only drawback was that it sometimes...
