I'm writing this comment from the hotel. It has been 4 days and we really enjoyed every part of it. It is just 100 steps up from Corso Umberto, main street of Taormina. Main parking area is also just 300 mtrs away. So you feel like both at the centre but also away from the noise. The staff really friendly... More

We stayed at this place for 5 nights recently while spending some time in Sicily, and it was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and they even had some free parking at times right out the front which was handy. The hotel has a huge terrace which overlooks the town and Mount Etna, which was nice for a... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in late June 2014. Not only is the hotel beautiful and impeccably clean, it is just a short walk from the center of town. Breakfast was plenty. Hard boiled eggs, lots of fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread, meat and cheese, juices and coffee.

Excellent location. Only a few (in consideration to taormina) stairs and you are down to the center. Very clean room, thanks to housekeeping. Reception staff very helpful. Hotel had a facility to go to beach from door to door service to a reasonable price. Our room had a nice balcony which we used a lot. Thanks to all:)

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Excellent continental breakfast. The cappuccino was great. Great location and there was parking which was very important as most places have limited or no convenient parking. Room and bathroom was very clean. This is also where Rick Steves tour groups stay which made us feel like we made a great choice here. Everything is... More

A picturesque stroll to the Main Street and awe inspiring overlook from the patio. Clean rooms, courteous staff, and great views. Would stay here again. Only complaint is not enough room between toilet and shower.

Continental is nicely nested in a very quiet area few steps up away from the main Bazaar of Corso Umberto. Walking distance to the cable car for the beach or bus station. It have a lovely terrace for evening cocktail drink and a lovely... More

We stayed here for two nights in May. The hotel is situated in the most convenient place in Taormina. Firstly, it's very near the main street Corso Umberto. Secondly, it's quite high, so you get a breathtaking view to the town, sea and Etna from the terrace. It's a shame, that the weather for us was not so good, a... More

Very friendly staff greeted us. Had a lovely room with balcony and view. Hotel is well situated and the views from the terrace are amazing. Would stay there again but only for a short time. The breakfast was adequate but not very imaginative. Would prefer a hotel with a pool in the summer time!! However my friends and I had... More
