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

| 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.

Welcoming Staff, Lovely room, great location, amazing views, plentiful breakfast. Our only complaint is that the air conditioning unit was very loud, this became more evident as we continued our travels....

We stayed here as part of a trip around sicily for our honeymoon. We left with mixed feelings. The hotel itself is nice enough & the roof terrace has a fantastic view. I was left a little angry with a slightly odd situation that developed however when my brother emailed the hotel from the UK to ask if they could... More

My husband and I got married in Taormina and stayed at Hotel El Jebel for 5 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, right in the middle of Corso Umberto. The breakfast was plentiful and varied with options for continental, cooked and sweet treats. However, we were rather disappointed with the room decor. The space was... More

A luxery hotel with a personal touch. The staff is very kind and service minded. The location is perfect to go around in Taormina. You can ask the staff to get your luggage as you have to park your car in the parkin garage of Taormina. The room is spacious and luxery. We loved this hotel!

One of the top 5 hotels I've ever been to (and I've been to 200+). For those who have been to Charleston SC, I'd compare this to Zero George. It has a B & B feel with big hotel amenities. I believe they only have 10-15 rooms. Rooms were well-appointed, beautiful, and comfortable. All the bells and whistles. Bathrooms were... More
