You have to park at a pre described place as their is no place to park at hotel. They send someone to get you and luggage. Very warm and friendly staff.

I arrived in Taormina and was immediately frustrated that most streets fit only Vespas and smart cars. We simply parked near a Piazza and walked a few blocks with google maps as a guide. Coming to hotel el Jebel tired and hot, the service immediately changed my mood. Upon showing how confused we were on parking, etc. the concierge immediately... More

Perfect location in center of town. Beautiful, well appointed, spacious rooms. The service is impeccable. Breakfast plentiful and delicious. You really cannot go wrong here. Class act and worth every penny. Have a drink on the roof terrace, the view is breathtaking. I was so happy to be here and in Taormina.

Great room, yummy breakfast, great service but just too expensive, no swimming pool and some steps to go up and down from main walkway to get to hotel which can be a little tiring. Great service to also meet and greet us at the car park and take our bags. Fantastic stay! 😀

The hotel is near the centre of Taormina, just off the Main Street. We had a classic double room on the first floor. Not much of a view and it was a little on the small side but very comfortable and well equipped with a luxurious bathroom which had an excellent shower and 'his' and 'hers' basins (!). There were...

The El Jebel Hotel is a wonderful boutique hotel with exceptional service. We stayed here for four nights and everyone of the staff were helpful and went above and beyond whenever we needed anything. The last week of March was really cool, but on our last day the sun came out so we wanted to enjoy some time on their... More

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
