We've stayed at Hotel Sole Castello a number of times over the last few years, always at March. Located on a hilltop position in the historic city of Taormina, Hotel Sole Castello offers the best panoramic views of Mount Etna and the Mediterranean Sea from most of its rooms and from its outdoor pool. This hotel is conveniently located to several shopping markets, good nightlife and dining options, the city centre is only 2 km away and can be reached with a local bus or on foot in 15 minutes.. If you're like me don't want to spend your entire vacation budget on one luxury hotel room and would like to stay at one of these affordable hotels which offer safe, clean accommodations with a variety of amenities then Sole Castello is a perfect choice, The room we had accommodates up to four guests for under $125/ night (continental breakfast included), . While there are hotels within the city itself, either we weren't keen on them or else they cost that bit extra, so you make your choices based on what you want from your stay I guess.Our room was well equipped, but above all, spacious, warm and cozy, and clean with a deep soaking jacuzzi tub . Our room service was always on hand, and the small touches the hotel provided were lovely, leading to even more extra special memories for us.

The property’s restaurant specializes in Sicilian dishes and desserts, along with international dishes and Italian cuisine. Meals are served in an elegant dining room overlooking the sea.
After a day out shopping/sightseeing, it's a good place to come back to, to unwind.
As for the hotel staff, the only way to describe them is with words such as Friendly, Professional, Attentive, Efficient to name a few. It was impossible to find a member of staff that did not have a smile on their face at all times. Can't give them less than 4.5/5 as they've been good to us through the years.
I cannot wait to visit again soon, and look forward to the amazing standard of treatment we receive when we are there.

From the balcony of my room the best view up Taormina and the Etna volcano
ever seen. The hotel is located on the hill top of the town near the ancient castle and the curch of Madonna Rocca. There you find a small terrace with a wonderful view up the Teatro Greco and the sea.

The staff is not only arrogant but aggressive and threatening. I would never stay here again for that reason alone. The overall condition of the hotel is that of a low-grade 2 star hotel in need of a serious renovation. Getting to and from the center of town is at best a nightmare (from the hotel you have to first walk down several hundred steps) to impossible (back up a steep hill using those same stairs). Every "extra," from breakfast to wifi access to taxi services (20 euros for a less than 10 minute ride to the center!) is a price gouge. Any other option in Taormina has to be better than this!

No carpets, doors opening and closing all night and morning, the staff starts cleaning at 7a.m., cigarette burns in the bed spread, virtually no hot water, surly staff morning, noon and night. Go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

This hotel has an amazing view....However it is located in between Taormina city center and Castemola. I agree with everyone else the hotel management was HORRIBLE...very rude and made the stay unpleasnt. Also if you are going during the summer they only run the air condition from 2 pm to 4 am, and it doesn't work very well at all. Also be prepared as their credit card machine didn't work when we went to check out... the receponist insisted we go to the city center to the atm...however the people that checked out behind us were forced to leave their luggage as colleteral for when they returned with the money to pay their tab. Overall I would rate this hotel itself amazing....when you add the horrible staff I would give it a one star.....
