We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Elios. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located 15 minutes from the city center and 10 minutes from the bus station. The room was clean and the furnishing was slightly outdated. The view of Mount Etna from the room was amazing ( the volcano was erupting during our stay). The... More

This is a good basic hotel. The hotel location is very good - it's a 10 minute walk from the city centre and a bit less from the central bus station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and nice, with a small balcony, and had air conditioner. A small minus was that the room... More

I was amased by the staff. Chiara is an exquisit person who gave us really good advice about where to eat in Taormina. We had a really nice stay. Thanks to Elios, we had the opportunity to enjoy our week-end in Taormina as well as Emma's concert, which was 400m behind the Hotel. Definitely a place to book !

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, we had the most gorgeous views from our balcony out over the ocean and mountains. Quick walk into the centre and the Greek Theatre, a bit more reasonably priced just hat little bit out of the centre. We found the staff to be very warm and helpful and would stay here again... More

If you only visit one place in Sicily, it should definitely be Taormina. And if you want to make the most of the town and the surrounding areas without paying Taormina prices, then the Elios is the perfect place to stay. Arriving in Taormina by bus, we were delighted to find that this hotel was signposted from the bus station... More

Good budget hotel. Very clean and helpful staff. Very close to bus station, greek theatre and cable car and many good restaurants. Easy to go to Isola Bella and Grotta Azzurra and it's a nice walk down to the beach. It's more practical to take the cable car back as there are many steps to climb. Breakfast was average. They...

I chose this hotel as I was relying on public transport, and day excusions that leave from the bus station only about 7 minutes walk. My room has had a recent bathroom renovation and looks very slick and modern, however this does not blend with the old furniture in the bedroom. I found the bed quite hard and had to... More
