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

Has a 60s to 70s feel to it and although a bit worn on the edges serves a traveller well. Beautifully located and centrally to the main drag through taormina. A large patio overlooking the town and mt Etna will keep you occupied for more than a glance. The breakfast was only run of the mill though. Still a winner... More

We stayed here 5 nights and we are very happy that we booked this hotel. The view on the terrace is amazing, and the room is very nice too. We had a great stay with no problems. Would definitely stay again.

Had a very good short stay at this hotel. Room was clean, and bed big enough for baby to sleep in the middle comfortable. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is in the centre of Taormina and it does not have to many steps, so it was usually... More

The main advantage of the place is its location just a little outside the tourist crowds. Settled on the slopes of a hill, the terrace has just great views on Etna and relaxed chairs and beds to chill. Just some 20 steps from the base floor down you find yourself next to best restaurants in town. The rooms are fine... More
