“Charming setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

In a well situated location just inside the old gates, this is good as long as there are no physical challenges (have to climb stairs at least one flight to get to elevator).

Roof top breakfast area has commanding view (Etna and the sea).

Very nice staff. Breakfast was great, with large assortment of meats, fruits, eggs cooked to order, etc.

Unfortunate problems with Internet connection, requiring re-entry of username and password ~ every 5 minutes, severely curtailed usability!

Dear mjmccoymd,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your review and for the very positive comments about our hotel and the breakfast.

We are very sorry to learn that you have had some problems with the Internet connection, but we think this might be due to the Firewall system in some computers, which resets the account for security reason, in order to protect the computer from unknown connections. As a matter of fact, we have not received any complaints from other guests, which means that our Wi-Fi system was working properly. If you had informed us about the problem while you were staying here, we could have helped you in changing the computer settings, so that your connection would not been disturbed.

Thanks again for your review and we hope to welcome you back here in the near future,

Best Regards,

The Management

This small hotel in main Corso Emmanuelle was a good surprise. Carefull staff, lovely room and and amazing breakfast made this place a highlight in our stay in Taormina. The sea view from some of the rooms and rooftop bar is also not to be missed. Staff is highly professional and take care of all details.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a week in September this year and can't recommend it highly enough! It's a gorgeous boutique style hotel and the standard of the accommodation and also the quality of the facilities was excellent. An added and unexpected bonus was the beautiful rooftop terrace where breakfast is served every morning. The views were to die for, as were the freshly cooked eggs and omelettes and all the other sweet and savoury delights:-) Also, the staff were so helpful and friendly.
Highly recommended - the only downside was that there was a little noise from the street below at times, but the location of the hotel is such a bonus that this is a small price to pay....would definitely use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Try and get one of the balcony rooms overlooking Corso Umberto.

What a great choice of hotel to start our 2 weeks in Sicily. Terrific breakfast on the terrace in the morning with wonderfully attentive staff. Room was small but very comfortable. Position couldn't have been better.

Room Tip: Take the cablecar down to Mazzarro and go out onto the bay with one of the boats that are here. Fant...

My parents and I recently stayed at the Taodomus. The hotel was perfect. The staff couldn't have been nicer. The hotel is on a pedestrian street in the center of Taormina. To make our arrival easier a staff member met my elderly mother and walked her to the hotel while my father and I parked the car in a nearby parking garage. The rooms were beautiful, immaculate and recently renovated. My mother was disappointed that she couldn't get CNN and mentioned this to the staff before dinner. When we returned from dinner we were told that their TV system had been reprogrammed and CNN was now available.

The hotel has a breathtaking roof-top terrace with views of the town, the sea, and Mount Etna. By day this terrace is a bar open to all guests. In the morning it is the breakfast area. My parents were beaming when they appeared for breakfast. It was magical. They even prepare eggs, short order, with the fillings of your choice. My parents asked for two cups of American coffee. A few minutes later my Mom looked at my Dad and said, "They're preparing a new pot just for us!"

One thing that was clear to me is that the owner is worried about the small things. They walked my Mom to the hotel, they immediately fixed the TV, and they put a fresh pot of coffee on rather than serve coffee that had been sitting around.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Taormina. I HIGHLY recommend the Taodomus.

The staff here was really great. I told them what I wanted to do and they gave me a few suggestions including finding me a rental car and giving me a map and directions to all the towns that I wanted to visit. The breakfast on the rooftop is gorgeous, the pictures are real, and they even cook eggs for you which is very rare in Europe. The hotel is located right on the main drag of Taormina so the location couldn't be better.
