“Fabulous hotel in gorgeous town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This hotel was just spectacular. Everything was top-notch, from the cozy and modern bedroom to the absolutely stunning breakfast room/terrace looking right at Mt. Etna. As others have mentioned, the lady who serves breakfast is really a gem - she deserves special mention! The location of the hotel is perfect for shopping and seeing the main sights of Taormina...everything is just minutes away.

We visited in the off-season, December, and found the hotel to be perfectly peaceful and quiet...not sure if it is always this way but we found it to be just delightful. We also recommend a lovely little restaurant a few minutes from the hotel....I think it was called Cafe Tiramisu... or something similar. The front desk staff can direct you! Also, don't miss a visit to the Greek Theatre, just about 10 min walk from the hotel. Truly stunning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in Taormina and found the Hotel Taodomus to be a wonderful place to stay. It's right on the main street of Taormina making it really easy to find and also very convenient to restaurants and shops. The rooms were of a high standard and the breakfast was exceptional with everything from fruit and cereal, eggs and crepes cooked to order and even creme caramel and chocolate dipped dried dates! And if it's a clear day the view of Mount Etna is breathtaking. I also found the reception staff to be very helpful and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed and helping to book a tour of Mount Etna at short notice.
Our room did overlook the street but as it was low season we didn't have any problems with noise.
Overall I thought this hotel was fantastic value (especially considering the prices that I saw for many other hotels that I researched) and would highly recommend it.

We spent 2 lovely nights in the Taodomus hotel situated in the center of Taormina and we can just confirm the great reviews. We had room with a partial sea view - small but tasteful and romantic. The breakfast was great with a large variety of superb creps prepared by gentle Julia - served on the rooftop terrace overviewing Etna and the sea - LOL! The staff is extremely friendly - a girl from the reception carried our bags up the stairs and later on the man checked the best way for us to get to Agrigento. Great experience definitely worth recommending!

This is a very small, compact hotel that is just wonderful. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast fantastic and the front desk very helpful. I thought the woman who makes the made to order eggs and crepes is really talented. The view from the top of this hotel is spectacular (a snow capped Mt. Etna).

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,

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.
