Booked a double and a single room here. The location is perfect for the shops bars and restaurants. It is located down a small side street so it is fairly quiet . Any noise is that of small scooters or the locals chatting. The hosts are superb and very friendly. They cannot do

Booked 7 nights here on the top floor (self-contained apartment with HUGE terrace and sea views). The location is perfect- a few minutes walk to the cable cars, bus station and 2 minute walk to the Corso Umberto while being far enough away from the noise to relax. The owner was

We stayed several nights at the Dolphins Guest House. The location was in easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. We had picturesque views from the salon and the balcony of the salon. The street view from our room was pleasant. The owners were very helpful and nice.

Is there parking at the Dolphin Guest House?
Dolphin Guest House is located not far from Porte Messina in the town centre, outside the Corso Umberto i pedestrian area. Although it is not particularly far in actual distance from Stazione Taormina Giardini, it is a steep uphill walk on extremely winding, busy roads, so you may prefer to take the bus (or cable car if available). Once arrived at Taormina bus station or the cable car stop, it is a short walk uphill then downhill around a corner past some shops and restaurants to reach Vico B San Pancrazio. Hope this helps.

There is a bus from Catania Airport to Taormina - turn right out of the exit and purchase a ticket from the first (blue) kiosk. Once arrived at Taormina bus station, it is a short walk uphill then downhill around a corner past some shops and restaurants to reach Dolphin Guest House in Vico B San Pancrazio.

"Book well in advance, as rooms fill up quickly. When I left on July 25, I found out from Antonella that the rooms and the apartment were all booked up throughout August and into September."
