We stayed three nights at Hotel Condor, a wonderful family operation by the Sparta family. Our very nice room looked out over the city and sea and we were afforded spectacular views as well from the restaurant, patio and rooftop sundeck. We had read some reviews about barking dogs, but it was very quiet and we heard no dogs at all. Ilaria and her husband Marcello were wonderful, always greeting us with big smiles, recommending great restaurants with reasonable prices and special places to visit. Breakfast was always a most pleasant event with sweet Tanya serving excellent coffee, a wide variety of food items with special baked items by Mrs. Sparta, and interesting conversations with guests from all over the world. We loved our stay at Hotel Condor, would definitely stay there again and are happy to give it our highest recommendation.

Stayed: April 2010, traveled as a couple

A wonderful family owned and operated small hotel, staff and excellent. Very reasonably priced, and breakfast on the terrace is a great way to start the day. Free WiFi which is a great service, as many of the 3/4 star hotels we have stayed with charge excess prices.
A lovely location in a delightful town.

Hotel Condor was a grand surprise. We arrived in Taormina with no reservations, but we remembered looking at a Trip Advisor report about this hotel, so we located it and checked in. It was a real treat right from the beginning. The staff was wonderfully helpful. The view was breathtaking. The breakfast on the terrace was divine. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Sicily.

I was happy there. The owner is a very kind elderly man. I choose the least expensive room and was pleasantly surpised it had a little balcony and I could see the gorgeous sea from my bedroom. The terrace for breakfast has gorgeous views every day. The hotel is a bit uphill from the main part of town but I liked this too as I met Italian residents (as I got lost). I believe there is a convent on the street. It felt very safe even as I walked home at 1 am by myself after an all day trip to the Aeoli Islands. The hotel is near a hiking path to the top of the mountain - castlemola. That hike was the highlight of my trip. The hike is detailed on the back of the tourist map from the tourist office in town. The hotel was a great value.

Hotel Condor is a gem. It is in a great position for exploring Taormina on foot and close to many excellent restaurants and bars. The view from the terrace is amazing. The management and staff are extremely helpful and efficient and the rooms are very comfortable and clean.
