The Metropole is amazingly well located in the centre of Taormina and within a 5 minute walk of everything of note. It has an outstanding main terrace which is great for an evening drink as well as an excellent restaurant (think it has a michelin star) with its own terrace. There is a bar in the lobby and live music most evenings which gives the hotel a classy "see and be seen" vibe.
Our room was very bright and airy with high ceilings, a sparkling white marble floor and an attached balcony. However, it was a bit on the small side. The bathroom was very dark and the shower was not functional with doors that didn't close completely.
Service was generally good with gracious front office staff helping us with restaurant recommendations and reservations, day trips, parking, etc. There were some slip ups though - it took over an hour to get fresh towels in the morning, housekeeping service was only available at certain times, and room service often took very long.
We travelled to Taormina with our 3.5 year old and I'm not sure this was the best hotel for him since children's facilities are limited and even the pool is not really appropriate for kids (small and very quiet).
The hotel is very expensive especially in relation to the size of the rooms, but given the location and view, I think it is worth it.
