Very well situated, old style european hotel (meaning small shower), family owned. Rooms are confortable, some have astonishing views. The breakfast is fair with the assistance of Mr Mario who made my stay an A+. It is safe and clean with the family owners trying to do what they can to make your stay an enjoyable one.

Hotel del Corso is an old style European Hotel, built years before air conditioning & wifi were considered to be basic human rights in the days when lifts were tiny and showers showered rather than deluged. As such, it is possibly unsuitable for anyone wedded too firmly to the second decade of the 21st century , but for those who... More

This small family-run hotel is right on the Corso Umberto in the very centre of Taormina, the staff are very friendly and helpful; it's a great location and very handy for the reasonably-priced municipal car park nearby. It was rather chilly during our stay at New Year 2015 and it would probably be best to plan a visit in the... More

We spent 4 nights in this hotel, and loved it. the location can't be beat; a 3 minute walk from the Porta Catania parking garage, just inside the old walls. very close to excellent restaurants, gelaterias and shops. The staff were incredibly friendly, spoke excellent English and went out of their way to be helpful. Prices were very reasonable, and... More

This was our third stay (September 2014) at this wonderful, family-run hotel, located at the start of Taormina’s main street – Corso Umberto. It is immensely convenient to be able to pop in and out several times a day. We chose a room overlooking the spectacular bay. The room and adjoining private bathroom were spacious, clean, with air-conditioning and a... More

Wonderful hotel to stay in - in the middle of town located on the quiet end of the main road. Very friendly employees. Beautiful view from breakfast room /roof terrace of Giardini Naxos, the volcano Etna and Taormina surroundings. Overlooked 3 weddings from our terrace facing the back garden.

This hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good, a selection of cereals, breads and pastries. Ask for an ocean view, they have balconies facing the ocean, hard to find in a tight mountain town like Taormina. The location is also perfect; inside the town gates and on the main drag... More
