We went to Taormina last summer and enjoyed Sicily so much we wanted to see more of the island so arranged a break, flying out with Ryanair and staying at the Ambasciatori. I've stayed in better hotels but they were 5-star Hiltons and the like. This is great value, clean and comfortable and well located which is what you want when you're on holiday. It's close the the station which is not only where the trains arrive, obviously, but also where the buses from the airport arrive and leave from. It's also only a short walk from the main sites - the Quattro Canti, cathedral etc. It also has free wi-fi and a PC with internet connection for free use by guests which is a big plus point for me. The breakfasts were more than adequate too. The only negatives I'd point out are that the lift is a bit antiquated so if someone leaves the doors open it won't work and you also have to walk up a short flight of stairs on the ground floor to get to the lift. Breakfast is on the 5th floor - spectacular view - and you also have to walk up a couple of flights to get there too, so anyone who has difficulty walking should beware. the only other criticism is that the wi-fi wasn't working on the 3rd floor so you had to go to the 5th floor to get a connection. Despite those minor irritations I'd strongly recommend the Ambasciatori.
