Le Sibille
Ranked #23 of 115 Taormina B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Friendly B&B with great rooms in an incredible location in the heart of Taormina. A much better option than the highly priced hotels. Rooms were simple and clean with the bonus of air con, which is much needed in the Sicilian summer!

Decided to stay here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, our expectations were exceeded.

The location could not be better right in the centre of this vibrant and picturesque town. Passers-by can be heard in the rooms with the windows open, but not closed. At night the street is quiet. Air conditioning means that the rooms are never uncomfortable with the windows closed.

Our en-suite bathroom was clean and functional, the bed was comfortable and the room possessed a small balcony.

Our charming host Enrico spoke very good English. The continental breakfasts he provided were tailored to our tastes and served on the spacious roof terrace (weather permitting).

Parking is available at the nearby multi-storey car park (5-10 minutes walk); a ticket for a week (unlimited entries and exits) is very reasonablly priced at circa. €50.

Great B&B made extra special by Enrico for whom nothing is too much trouble. His excellent service and advice and tips on what to see and do really help to enable you to make the most of your time. The location is great, right in the centre of all the action and is the perfect base for exploring Sicily further.
Ask Enrico to point you in the direction of Davide who took us on a great tour of Etna with wine tasting at Gambino winery, a really special day with the wine tasting a great reward at the end of a hard day climbing Etna.
I cannot fault this B&B at all, book to stay here and you will have a great time in Taormina.

Without a doubt the best thing about Le Sibille is Enrico, the owner. He's extremely helpful and friendly. He was there when we arrived and answered all our questions. He always had a delicious breakfast ready for us each morning. He was great and extremely accomodating. The velvet room was very nice with great space and a nice bed. The location of the B&B is perfect right on the main street in Taormina, right in the center of all the attractions. You really couldn't plan it any better. The pricing is really good too compared to all the high priced options in Taormina. If we ever find ourselves in Taormina, we'll definitely be back.

Fantasticimo!
You will not be disappointed with this B&B. It’s clean, fully functioning, in the heart of the bustling town, conveniently located with all the restaurants and cafes you would need. The breakfasts are home cooked and delicious. The owner Enrico was brilliant, he was friendly and on hand to give very good advice and recommendations.

Dear Fellow Travellers, before reading this review I would like to warn you that you may want to pack your bags and leave for Taormina tonight. After a 6 month haitus of not travelling I randomly picked a place for travel with some friends. I had no expectations apart from leaving the UK and disconnecting from the daily grind of work and London. We arrived in Catania (the main airport of this region) late into the evening and we were all overwhelmed by the aroma of gentle heat coupled with cheerful smiles from the natives around the airport; as Rudyard Kipling once said “The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.” indeed it was most certainly a taste of things to come.

Buses in Catania don't run after 8pm and having landed quite late into the evening, we hired a driver to take us to Taormina. Our driver Antonio was a warm and incredibly friendly man, knowledgeable about most things around the island and he made our hour long journey funny and interesting. We progressed through Catania to Taormina and were dropped off near the square of our residence. We didn't know where to go but Enrico (the owner of the b and b) had made sure to take the time out to come and greet us at 10pm and politely showed us around the bed and breakfast.

First to mention is our bedroom: What an adorable place!!! The tastefully decorated doors and bedrooms to all the rooms were unique with colours of green and orange adorning the doors and giving a feeling of warmth. Since the bed and breakfast is positioned at a wonderful location in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the main street in Taormina we could hear the locals on the streets greeting each other, laughing and embracing life. Our triple room was equipped with comfortable beds and we even had a balcony overlooking the street! With scents and rustic smells of wood ovens cooking authentic pizzas climbing up to our balcony every evening, there was very little we could do during our trip but to embrace the pending weight gain; what better way to die from carbohydrate overload??!! I now fully understand why the witty Sicilian writer Andrea Camilleri's main protagonist in all his books and tv drama "Inspector Montalbano" is prepared to ignore important issues such as crime over a plate of pasta......

As for hygiene, the sheets were crisp and the room smelt of cleanliness, not an ounce of dust in sight and as for the bathroom it was spotless. Small luxuries like warm water, powerful shower and ease of use made the room incredibly functional with absolutely no complaints. Did we think that this was the best part of the bed and breakfast? Yes, but we were wrong, the morning was the best part of our stay. We didn't think that things could get any better, however in the morning we were delighted to find a table overlaid with breakfast essentials from fruit to eggs, steaming pot of ground coffee and the best part? A freshly baked cake made by Enrico himself. Lemon cake, pistachio cake, chocolate cake, pound cake, and apple cake! I had planned on drowning myself in the traditional Sicilian pastry cannoli, however my greedy appetite got the better of me and like a child in a sweet shop I gorged every morning on cake. In my poor defence everyone else did as well! The kitchen adjoins to a large balcony area where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun when eating. The ocean can be seen in the distance, the locals can be heard milling down below on the street and the sun beats down on you as you take a leisurely morning to soak in the atmosphere over an espresso and getting to know your fellow guests in the bed and breakfast.

Along with continuously eating in the morning we were given interesting advice from Enrico concerning what we could see, places to go and just general information about the area. Enrico was by no means intrusive, but subtle in his ability to interact with his guests bringing home the phrase “there is no hospitality like understanding”. He knew exactly what me and my group of friends required for food everyday and never got annoyed with any of us. Bless him for making our stay one of the best highlights of the trip. We most definitely intend on returning.

Our days in Taormina became mixed with day trips and excursions and walking everywhere. Mt Etna is a must and has to be experienced with a tour guide which was recommended by Enrico called Davide from Continente Sicilia Tours. Siracuse was beautiful and the town of Taormina was just as relaxing as any beach holiday. I cannot complain about the people, they were wonderfully polite and were curious about our ethnic origins without being rude. It was just incredibly pleasant to feel safe in the city and to walk around without feeling self-conscious. Not once did I crave my internet, wifi, email or any other digital gadget connecting me with the rest of the world; it was a wonderful time to just relax.

I've stayed in many highly rated hotels around the world and this is the first time I felt the need to write on Tripadvisor about any experience associated with my travelling. There are a lot of hotels out there that could learn a thing or two about hospitality from Le sibille B and B. I hope to return again at some point; it really felt like a home from home. Thankyou Enrico for making our stay so wonderful.

Room Tip: All are wonderful.

Taormina is gorgeous, and this B&B is right in the centre, so convenient to everything. We were there at the beginning of November and loved every minute. We found Le Sibille offered fabulous value in a resort town. The service is exceptional and the rooms comfortable. Breakfast was upstairs with a view, and it was glorious sitting on the terrace of an evening.
