“Stunning view! Have breakfast looking at Mount Etna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

The hotel is on the main street (Corso Umberto). Taodumos passes you without notice from the street however once you get inside you are completely taken by its class and grace. Rooms are small but very cosy and neat. The breakfast offers you an à la carte menu in an elegant terrace with a good view to the volcano Etna. Can’t think about a better way to start your day.

It's a small, absolutely lovely hotel. It was 69 steps to our room (yes they have an elevator) but it was great fun. Really lovely rooms (all of them). Taorimina is quite the tourist spot; however, just walk up the hill and start climbing steps and it is great. Don't bother with buses -- the town above is really an easy walk from the hotel. You can also walk down to the beach -- just look for some steps going down (it is quite easy) and you can return via the road -- it's fun. Great espresso across the street and tons of restaurants. We stayed a week ( a bit too long), but quite a fantastic place to stay. The breakfast is absolutely THEEEEE best with theee most incredible women running it. Yes, Maria is fantastic. Remember, tour buses go there and it can really be packed. At night -- it is just great! We'll be back! Oh, great wines at the little
store up the street, and fabulous pizza and rice balls just down by the first fountain.

Room Tip: We had the ocean view/Etna view -- nice! However, when they fire up the pizza oven below, it gets r...

I stayed at this hotel last August. Since the period was in high season, the room rate was 200 euro per night, not so cheap. However, the location was very convenient since this was actually in the shopping street and closed to the parking area outside the town. Also, the room was spacious, cleaned and sophisticated. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful. I heard the street in the midnight could be noisy, but we did not hear much noise from outside, maybe, because of the thick glass window. If the budget is allowed, I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The room where the noise from the street is less.

Dear Guest,

Thank for your review and all the beautiful compliments on every single aspect of Taodomus Hotel.
We are sorry to read about your consideration on the room's rate, but as you know, and everybody knows, traveling during the high season is more expensive and unfortunately this happens all over the word, not only in Taormina.

Maybe you can also consider to travel during the low season. However we will always be happy to welcome you again!

Kind Regards,

Olga Sturiale

I can´t add a lot to all previous excellent reviews..it is all true!!
Location can´t be beaten, bang within the pedestrian zone and a 2 minute walk from a huge car park. It is nevertheless very quiet and comfortable.
Do not forget to ask reception for restaurant advice, they will send you to some amazing places!
One word comes to mind when thinking about this hotel: charming!

The staff is friendly and helpful: Daniele & Maria go the extra mile for visitors. Decor is cheery, rooms are very clean and have high ceilings and a distant view of Etna and the sea. The hotel is located on a pedestrian shopping street near great restaurants, a large parking garage, and historical sights.

Room Tip: We loved the balcony with a sea & Etna view.

Gentilissima Signora,

Grazie per aver scritto la sua opinione molto positiva in quanto descrive diversi punti a favore della nostra struttura, sinceramente quello che mi lascia alquanto perplessa e' il suo giudizio finale appena sufficente e non coerente con il contenuto e con il titolo della recensione stessa.
Al momento del check out ha lodato la struttura complimentandosi con il personale, quindi leggendo la sua recensione, ci ha lasciato dedurre, che sia stata elaborata e scritta di getto in maniera affrettata, sintetica e con un giudizio finale poco coerente.

Ci auguriamo di cuore di poterla ospitare presto, e per un periodo piu' lungo, per permetterle di valutarci in modo piu' completo e sereno.

Noi tutti auguriamo un felice Natale a lei ed a tutta la sua famiglia.

I have recently returned from a long holiday abroad and I felt I had to wirte something about my time at the Hotel Taodomus. My sister and I had a marvelous time during our stay. The desk staff couldn't be more helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. The location is perfect, just an easy walk to most of the best restaurants, views and sights. Our breakfast on the roof top was one of the highlights of our day. Amazing selection of food, eggs and crepes made to order with the most pleasant staff. We felt we had made great friends. I have not even mentioned the view from the roof top. Every direction was beautiful, from the sea to the mountains behind and of course Etna in the distance. Our room was lovely and comfortable and we had a nice view of the ocean from our balcony. I can recommend this hotel without hesitation. We even borrowed a laptop when ours decided not to work properly.

Room Tip: We enjoy our view of the ocean on one of the higher floors.

My daughters and I stayed at the Hotel Taodomus in december 13 and loved every minute. It was very beautiful and comfortable. The view could not have been better, and the location excellent for exploring the area. Everyone was very helpful with all for our questions and gave us excellent advice from taking the bus to Castlemola and walking back on the path (gorgeous!), to airline help and planning our WONDEFUL day trip with Etnapeople. The delicious breakfast was the best ever and the home made Tiramisu melted in our mouths! I would love to go back and stay again, our trip was too short!
