My daughter and I spent 3 nights at The El Jebel in August. It was fantastic. We assumed we had the smallest room in the hotel but it was spacious, elegantly furnished, fresh and clean. The hotel is situated just behind the main street of the old town which is perfect for browsing the shops and restaurants. The rooftop terrace... More

It has been a long time since Taormina is not the playground of the rich and famous. It is not Cala de Volpe and certainly not Ibiza or Saint Tropez. Some Taormina hotels (e.g. Trimeo) are still - unconvincingly - trying to keep the show going. It does not hover work even if the views from the Trimeo are beautiful.... More

We stayed for 5 nights on June 8 to June 13, 2015. We are from Maryland in the United States. We had 5 in our party, and we occupied 3 rooms. The hotel was in a great location in Taormina, right on Corso Umberto, with nice views and a beautiful terrace. When we first checked in, our room did not... More

Great location, great rooms, great food, great staff. Very small hotel very well presented. We had dinner on the roof terrace which was everything you could have expected. You walk straight down onto the main street but tucked away enough not to be effected by the proximity. We will stay here again

No value for the asking price. Very small hotel, no swimming pool, no outside area. Only terrace on the roof, which is very hot and noisy. WiFI is not working in the room. Definitely not a 5 star hotel. Service was good, breakfast ok but the same every day if you are staying at the 3rd floor you can hear... More

While we were walking along the buzzing town of Taormina, an elegant entrance caught our eye. It was Hotel el Jebel. We entered this impeccably designed boutique hotel, and were escorted to a glass elevator up to their rooftop terrace. A beautifully lit setting, relaxing ambiance: it was surprising to see such a peaceful place undisturbed by the crowds only... More

We had our wedding at El Jebel and stayed there on our wedding night. The hotel is in a great location just off the Corso Umberto so very well positioned for exploring the town. Each of the 3 floors in the hotel follow a different theme and the rooms reflect this which is a nice touch. Breakfast is simple get... More

Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful stay at this hotel - our room was beautifully appointed, spacious and welcoming. The breakfast had a great selection of pastries, fruit and bread, and the scrambled eggs were magnificent. The rooftop terrace was great to have a drink and nibbles pre dinner. The staff really make this hotel stand out - completely... More
