Delightful reception staff - Dario is a gem. Fabulous roof terrace with views over the town as far as Etna and the sea. Only reason I can't give it excellent is that it needs serious refurbishment. The rooms are fine but old fashioned. Bathrooms good but could be better. Pubic rooms from the 1960s. Of course the location and that...

The Hotel Continental is a great place to stay. I had a conference at another site in Taormina and needed somewhere nice but cheaper. The Continental completely fitted this. The hotel itself was built in the 60s but my room was immaculately renovated with stylish fittings and new bathroom. It was very very nice. The staff were fantastic. On arrival...

The hotel is in located right off the main street. Really close to the big car park. For those not used to driving in Italian towns I'd recommend use of the car park. The hotel has a nice back entrance. Breakfast was quick, good quality and staff very friendly. The main attraction was the terrace. It has stunning view over...

Great location, just next to everything. From the terrace and the lounge next to the reception you'll get the best Etna view you can hope for. Stuff is very friendly and helpful. We got an amazing huge bowl of fresh fruit as a compliment for my upcoming birthday upon arrival. Charming rooms, the balconies and the garden. Not very impressed...

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at this great hotel last week. Taormina is beautiful and so picturesque. When we checked in we were given an upgrade to a twin room with a balcony with a stunning sea view. Rooftop terrace was very nice. The hotel was spotless throughout. Beds and room were comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and...

We traveled in the off season, so parking wasn't a problem. The location just up a few staircases from the main street is perfect- quiet, seems like it would be easier to park then in town, and great views of Etna from the expansive terrace. Clean room, welcoming staff. Generous breakfast, call direct for the best rate.

Paid a little more for an upgraded room well worth it. Friendly staff and a good service. Exceptional views of Etna while being very convenient to be near some very good restaurants. Parking is a problem so we elected not to hire a car. Phone ahead to arrange transfers from airport.

Although we visited in the off-season (late February), the staff were warm, welcoming, and accommodating. The terrace has a stunning view of the sea, Mt. Etna, and the hills above and below the hotel. The breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious, and the coffee was superb. If you are brave with steps, you have walking access to the charming town...
