Perfect location, only a short walk to the centre and great staff who went above and beyond. We stayed for an anniversary and the hotel did all they could to make the stay as special as possible. Highly recommended.

The location of the Continental Hotel is excellent i.e. short walk to the centre of the action in Taormina. The staff was super friendly & helpful, the facility was very clean, and the room had wonderful views of Mount Etna and the adjacent garden. Parking needs some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, is fine.... More

The view from the hotel top floor is amazing. The hotel also has free Wifi and good breakfast buffet with many choices. Above all the hotel... More

I picked this hotel mostly because I read that it was where the Rick Steves' tour stays in Taormina. Considering how expensive Taormina can be, I thought the hotel was a great deal. It's an easy walk to the Duomo and Corso Umberto and also close to the start of the path up to the Madonna della Rocca. If you... More

The Continental Hotel in Taormina was perfect for us. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes walk down to the square and then a 5-10 minute stroll to Piazza IX Aprile with lots of stores, outdoor restaurants and bars. It is just close enough to easily reach this area while being set back just enough that the hotel itself... More

We stayed here 2 nights as we stopped in Taormina. The view from the garden terrace is great and you are only a few steps away from the main shopping street. The staff were very friendly and helpful and helped make our stay enjoyable. We had an 8 year old and a 4 month old with us and they provided... More

Excellent location with friendly staff. Room was spacious comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice. The town centre was accessed via hotel gardens and some steps but these were not difficult to manage. We stayed for four nights in June and had an enjoyable stay. Very good value for money.

The staff at this small hotel were friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern although small, but each room has a nice balcony to sit on with a view to the gardens below. The hotel's rooftop terrace offers gorgeous views of the town, hillside, and Mt. Etna where you can sit and relax with a drink from the bar. The... More

I am my two girlfriends enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel has a magnificent terrace with views across the bay where you can relax and drink and eat either in the hot sun or under the twinkling stars. The breakfast was excellent very fresh and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The rooms were clean and spacious and... More
