We stayed at the Imperiale for the last day of our Sicily holidays. The hotel is located on one of the side roads of Taormina, up the hill. It is almost impossible to park in the street but the hotel has a separate parking and will park your car for you (and charge you for that). It is located just... More

Stayed here in the summer for a week. Our first room did have a couple of problems and after the first night we did get moved to another room. Nice rooms very clean And the bathroom were nicely done. The pool not the greatest for sunbathing however a nice area to cool down in the afternoon sun- shame no separate... More

Having been bumped from our original booking by virtue of the hotel being "comandeered" by the Italian Govt for meetings we were moved to the Imperiale. Fantastic location - 5 minutes to the Corso Umberto and the centre of town with umpteen restaurants to choose from. Excellent staff who were all very courteous and professional. Good room on 3rd floor... More

Great location away from the hustle and bustle but within an easy 5 minute walk of main street. We had a monutain facing room. Of which I understand there are only four. Room appeared quite dark initially as not too much day light but depends how kond you intend to stay i. Your room. We found it ideal and very... More

We stayed for a week at the end of September. The only room available when booking was an "exclusive" room, which was reasonably expensive. It was quite nice, overlooked the pool, very big comfortable bed, huge bathroom with great shower. Although nice, it was not spectacular so not sure what the regular rooms would be like. Curiously, although the view... More

A lovely hotel with extremely well designed rooms (as long as yours faces the front of the hotel), and a great pool. What makes it extra special was the brilliant service offered by staff. We had a lovely stay and would recommend it highly - just remember to reserve a car parking space in advance and get a front facing... More

We were happy to check into a hotel that was new, modern, spotlessly clean, and a short walk to the main streets of Taormina. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient, and our room was excellent. The swimming pool and lounge area provided a nice change from the busy streets of Taormina. The complimentary breakfast was of good quality,... More

Imperiale is a nice hotel in a great location but found the overall experience not as was expected. Roof restaurant was closed, no hotel bar (other than on the roof which was empty which lacked atmosphere), no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Hotel is on a busy road so the pool area does get noisy as this over looks the... More

Location is very good just set back from the Main Street and with great views across taramina. You can hear traffic from the road when you are laying by the pool but you are in the middle of a town so some noise is to be expected. There are stairs down to the Main Street and all across taoramina so... More

This hotel was in a wonderful location. The hotel's staff was friendly and helpful. I needed an adapter for my ipad and phone and was given one without hesitation. Breakfast was terrific with a large selection to choose from Taormino is a beautiful old world city with many quaint avenues to investigate. This hotel was beautiful, but I thought out... More
