The location was perfect - right off Corso Umberto. It was convenient to great shopping and restaurants. Breakfast was plentiful and excellent. A special thank you to Vanessa who always had a smile and fabulous service. I would also say that Daniella at the front desk provided superb customer service!! One morning we were leaving very early for an excursion.... More

This was a great hotel with a friendly staff. The rooms were updated, clean, fresh, and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and replenished often. Although the the bar was small and served from the front desk staff it was adequate and convenient. The outside bar area was large and had a very nice view. There was a pizzeria just... More

This was a very enjoyable place to stay, a block (up stairs) from the action of the main drag with great views of Etna and the sea from the terrace. The only minor complaint I have is with the wifi which was spotty except in the lounge. The room was clean and bathroom was ok except it was small with... More

We've stayed at the Continental 3 times during our trips to Sicily. The hotel is located just steps away from the main street of this truly magical town, nestled between the hills and the ocean. Many of the rooms as well as the hotel's large terrace have perfect views of Mt Etna. The rooms have individual balconies, have recently been... More

Delightful reception staff - Dario is a gem. Fabulous roof terrace with views over the town as far as Etna and the sea. Only reason I can't give it excellent is that it needs serious refurbishment. The rooms are fine but old fashioned. Bathrooms good but could be better. Pubic rooms from the 1960s. Of course the location and that... More

The Hotel Continental is a great place to stay. I had a conference at another site in Taormina and needed somewhere nice but cheaper. The Continental completely fitted this. The hotel itself was built in the 60s but my room was immaculately renovated with stylish fittings and new bathroom. It was very very nice. The staff were fantastic. On arrival... More

The hotel is in located right off the main street. Really close to the big car park. For those not used to driving in Italian towns I'd recommend use of the car park. The hotel has a nice back entrance. Breakfast was quick, good quality and staff very friendly. The main attraction was the terrace. It has stunning view over... More
