We spent 4 nights at El Jebel, and it was a memorable experience. The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the pedestrian area of Taormina, which we loved, and the views of the town and Mount Etna from the roof were spectacular. All the staff were absolutely brilliant - so helpful and friendly, and we could not have... More

Hotel Jebel couldn't have been more accommodating! It was not easy to find the hotel(we were driving), so they. Sent someone to help us park and find our way. Staff was attentive and had great restaurant recomendations.

The hotel staff is out there to please. They upgraded us to a sea view junior sutie, The room and the bathroom was very spacious and well... More

This is a lovely hotel right in the middle of the old town of Taormina. If you are arriving by car you can park fairly close by (about five mins walk) and can be met by a staff member who will collect your luggage and take you to the hotel - even in the pouring rain! Then you are in... More

We chose this location as the pinnacle of our trip to Sicily after travelling from Catania to Gioiosa Marea to the Aeolian Islands and then to Taormina. To be fair, the hotel is well located in the city centre and near to many restaurants and amenities. The hotel itself does not contain a gym, swimming pool or anything else that... More

eljebelhotel, Responsabile reception at Hotel el Jebel, responded to this review

| Untruthful review | Dear Tripadvisor users, we believe that this review written in November about a stay in July is a little bit “strange”! This user is writing a not positive review about our hotel and then he’s complaining about the cost of £250 per night in Taormina... He’s writing that in the Aeolian Islands, in the best hotel...

Ate here and wished we had stayed. Amazing hotel, amazing food and service, pretty central, definitely stay here, very upmarket and still very centrally located. Lovely non touristy feel, the roof terrace restaurant is phenomenal

We planned a spur of the moment trip to Taormina and were able to secure a beautiful Junior Deluxe Suite with a view that same day, and were also able to stay an extra night. The rooms are gorgeous (we had to change the second night, so saw two different rooms) and the eye for detail and design is impeccable.... More

Absolutely the most over priced and over rated hotel of our four week stay in Italy. We checked out after one night, rather than stay the three of our booking. There were problems that I will not go into. The staff is exceptional, very helpful and caring. That is why my rating is not a one.
