Great setting for a hotel, above Taormina on the road to Castelmola. The bedroom had a fabulous view of Mount Etna and the beautiful bay. Room was comfortable, bathroom a bit compact, as was the balcony. Staff were really nice, friendly and welcoming. In addition to the hotel restaurant, which served excellent food, there is another nearby (al Saraceno) which... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Sole Castello 7-1 trough 7-3. We got lost a couple times trying to find it but called the hotel and they were able to guide us in the right direction. Driving there is not something for those who are not strong drivers. We didn't heed the word and found out the hard way... More

My husband and I stayed at Sole Castello for a week in mid June and we were not disappointed. We chose this hotel mainly because of its fantastic views, reasonable rates, proximity to the centre of Taormina and the fact it offered parking. It was hard to find a hotel within our budget in Taormina that offered all of the... More

We had a nice week in Taormina staying at Sole Castello Hotel. The location is very good, rooms with sea/Etna vies are clean and comfortable, although bathrooms are small. The staff is kind and helpful - Carmen and Celeste, Emanuele and Nuccio, who is the best.

Absolutely beautiful views from the front facing balconies, overlooking Taormina and Etna. We paid a little extra for a room facing this view and it was definitely worth it, the views are the main selling point of the hotel. Our room was a reasonable size, but the balcony was absolutely tiny - we are not big people (I am 5ft... More

Sole Castello is located up hill from Taormina near the Castello, so most rooms have breathtaking views of the town, Etna, and the coastline. Room was very basic and could use some up dating, but clean. Didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room so it was perfect for what I needed. Staff were very helpful. There... More

very frindly staff. Nice view from the pool area,and the more expensive rooms. Breakfirst not worth eating. Bread served a week old. We had one of the cheaper rooms, there was definatly a reason it was cheap. Some would say it could need a makeover, some would say it could need some additional cleaning.
