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

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...
