With only 64% of reviews giving Hotel Elios the 'thumbs up' I was a little apprehensive. I shouldn't of been so worried. What a little gem in the centre of Taormina. My partner, who has 5 star tastes with a 3 star budget, had the Elios and 2 other B&Bs chosen after looking at many places in Taormina through tripadvisor.... More

front desk is very helpful, some of the rooms are quiter than others, we had a nice quite room with no view on the 3rd floor. My brother's single room walls are thin thus could hear noisy neighbors. The hotel was nice to give him a better-quieter room. for 13Euro you get a parking next to the hotel and you... More

Hotel Elios is positioned just a few minutes walk from Taormina's cute city center, the local restaraunts and the Greek ampitheatre. The city and the atmosphere is amazing, but the Hotel Elios is average. In this case average is'nt necessarily a negative word, as you actually pay for what you get. Postive: - Amazing view from the terrace. - Very... More

Good location with excellent views from our sea view room. The room we had was very spacious even for four people & the staff were always very helpful. We had a tour of etna & airport transfer with Rosario, he was very helpful at the hotel and gave us a very memorable last day in Sicily.

We stayed at Elios for 4 nights in Sept, it's a 5 minute walk from the bus stop in Taormina, an easy 5 minute walk to town, and 5 minutes to the steps to the beach. We had an excellent room on the 5th floor with a beautiful view of Mt Etna and the sea. Breakfast was good for a... More

Brilliant location, wonderful views. All the staff were great, they made our stay most enjoyable. Rosario, Giovanna, and David could not do enough for us. Their ideas, directions, support and Italian lessons were invaluable during our memorable holiday.

Taormina is expensive like many tourists trap towns in Italy. Hotel Elios is cheaper than most hotels in Taormina but your are only getting pretty basic accommodation. We rented two rooms that were spacious and clean. One room had a small balcony with an incredible view. However, we did experience water pressure issues that affected toilet use. Our tv did... More

Excellent location, close to all amenities (cable car, bus station, corso umberto, etc). We had a very clean room with ensuite, crispy clean bed linen and towels and a balcony with a breathtaking view. Staff were extremely helpful especially Rosario and Giovanna, the receptionists who also spoke good english - they were always there to answer all our queries. Breakfast... More

Fantastic views from the shared fourth floor balcony overlooking the harbour and mt. etna. Location is brilliant about a hundred meters to the botanic gardens and within a short stroll of everything, from Taormina's main shopping street and restaraunts to the Greek ampitheatre and also just a short walk to the bus station. Found most of the staff to be... More

Nice location, easy to clean rooms, very nice helpful staff. It is close to the old town. Price ratio is excellent. Parking is very convenient, but forecasters at the hotel for your parking needs to be solved somehow. Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the sea, the premium is not expensive.
