located by the Porta Catania, this family-run traditional hotel offers clean, updated facilities with a panoramic view that is to die for. The staff is gracious, helpful, professional and patient. The restaurant associated with hotel serves good food (especially pizza) at reasonable prices.

This was one of the hotels that we stayed in on our tour of Calabria and Sicily with Chef Mark McDonald. The hotel was beautiful with a large patio overlooking Mt Aetna. The rooms were very clean, and comfortable. The staff was amazingly accommodating and very sweet. It was like visiting family from another land. Breakfast was an amazingly large... More

We were lucky enough to spend 2 nights here as part of a Rick Steve's tour. The rooms were clean and spacious, the rooftop terrace was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the majestic view. Our breakfast was plentiful, and the location is perfect for exploring the town. Quiet location....I loved it here!!

Taourmina is a very touristy town. Continental Hotel is centrally located, and we had a room with a view to Etna the vulcano. Nice reception, they took care of our car, and the breakfast was very good.

This hotel is made by the fantastic staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. It is rare to find such a genuinely excellent attitude to customer service these days, even in very high end establishments. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious. There is a lovely large lounge area and a beautiful terrace with views over the... More

It was opened till 10:00 at night. 4Euros for wash and 1Euro for 10 minutes of drying. This Hotel also is positioned to be able to have great views of Mt Etna, the surrounding... More

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.
