“Nothing but excellence”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Superlative.
I work in luxury marketing for hotels and can't fault the place. Special kudos to Daniella on concierge, and the gorgeous breakfast waitress - both went beyond the service of duty.

Combine that with the standard luxury 'bones' of great views, modern amenities, beautiful surroundings, the best breakfast ever (we'd come straight from st tropez).

I've found myself raving and raving and raving.

Not to mention the location. If you can afford it, are of a contemporary nature, I'd recommend staying here over Timeo.

The service and accommodations were outstanbding and the location, with the front door literally right on Corso Umberto and the back of the hotel overlooking the ocean, was perfect. The staff tended to every need and went out of their way to accommodate special requests. The rooms were modern and well-equipped including the best showers we've ever seen!

Room Tip: Oceanside rooms offer outstanding views.

The hotel is on the sea and there is any kind of comfort. You had pool, spa, air conditioning, park. The room was amazing! We had tub inside the room very big!!
The staff was very nice and friendly and the toast we ordered in the pool was delicious!
We had such a great time there! I suggest you only a reccomendation: if you are in the room and you want to be sure no one come in just put the sign outside ;-)

The hotel in our opinion has shortfalls whilst beautiful overall. We arrived as a family of 4( 2 children ) on a very hot day late afternoon. Our allocated room was a two story suite. The most disappointing introduction of this hotel was to enter a room in where the airconditiong was off and the temperature upstairs about 40!!
It took the AC on full blast two days to eventually cool the suite down. At 850 euros per night not acceptable in 5 Star language!!
We felt the staff generally forced their smiles and were accommodating only if asked - very uncomfortable ambience!
Maybe the staff should all take a leaf from the branch of the wonderful waitress serving breakfast. She was efficient, engaging and incredibly friendly - 5 Star service!!!!!
The hotel itself is perfectly located and extremely well maintained.
Rooms are spotless!

Yes, its expensive. You're in Taormina, Sicily. You know when you pass by a hotel that you arent staying in and you have hotel envy? That didn't happen when we stayed at the Metropole. Fresh, stylish, beautiful, friendly and unpretentious (for a 5 star European hotel) this is what you hope for when you think boutique hotel. The views spectacular, the energy was young and eager to please. Huge points for the linen sheets that were changed daily- the incredible shower with LED lights and the waterfall shower heads. Front desk staff gave great recommendations off the beaten path and the lunch we had on the sublime terrace was a small fortune but some of the best food we had our entire stay. We had three rooms (traveled with friends)- all different and all great. Only negative is the owner is very present and he could smile and be a bit more welcoming. Seemed like he was constantly surveying and waiting for the staff to mess up. Made me a little nervous.

The hotel is located right in the center of the walking street. There is no better place to be able to jump into the crowed streets of Taormina, but still have a quiet place to chill.
We were nicely upgradet from junior suite to a suite. The only minus point and the reason for my 4 stars and not 5 is that we had no balcony. This was such a pitty for such a magnificient view..
I actually booked the junior suite cause it has balcony.
Breakfast "à la carte" is a +

Room Tip: Insist for balcony room.
