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

Charming boutique hotel in the heart of Taormina. We booked directly through the hotel and got a cheaper price compared to the most common hotel booking portals. The hotel is located on the main street. It is a pedestrian-only area so it requires some 200-meter walk, but the staff gladly came to the parking lot to get our luggage. The... More

It was in a perfect location, quiet, luxuriously appointed, spotlessly clean, and the view from the roof top terrace spectacular. We were not in Taormina in summer so we were not interested in a pool or the beach. We to wanted to be in the nicest area and close to "the action" being restaurants, bars, shops and main attractions. All... More

El Jebel offers a great location and extremely comfortable rooms. Very family orientated as well as for couples. Great views of Taormina and the coastline. Rooftop restaurant is a must if staying there. The staff were very friendly and felt right at home immediately. Very helpful staff in assisting in planning our days. Very much worth a stay.

We visited in April, a two night stay before exploring the rest of Sicily. Our room was beautifully decorated, the bathroom a good size and well appointed. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, giving good local recommendations and driving directions. It's a bit annoying having to park away from the hotel itself but the building is lovely and... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel this spring and we were delighted with the beautiful accomodation and very friendly staff. Maybe just one thing that could have been better - the roof top terrace is amazing, but unfortunately not used (at least not off season, maybe it is different in summer) - it would have been a real treat to...

We stayed in this beautiful place in June 2014. The hotel has about 10 rooms which ensures you feel at home. The decor and furnishings are tasteful and luxurious. The hotel restaurant serves a wonderful breakfast and we ate dinner there one evening, beautiful food and such a romantic setting on the roof terrace with stunning views of Etna.Antonio and... More

Spent 2 nights here in early July. The hotel is located right in the centre of the beautiful town of Taormina, just a stone's throw (even a fairly terrible throw would do...) from the main pedestrian street of Corsa Umberto. Despite the proximity to the bustling streets, the hotel is absolutely silent inside. The hotel itself has only 10 rooms,... More

One of the best hotels I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The hotel only has 10 rooms on three floors set in a passageway up 38 steps from the busy main pedestrian street, Corsa Umberto. But it's tranquil and quiet. A glass elevator whisks you to your floor, so you can appreciate the view over the bay. Our suite... More

Where do I start?! What an amazing hotel. We had our Irish wedding here with 60 guests in June 2014 and it was perfection personified.
