We stayed at Hotel Sirius, Taormina in second half of September. The hotel’s location is excellent, few minutes’ walk uphill to Porta di Messina to enter the old centre of Taormina. Every day we went for walks on Corso Umberto and the hardest part was walking up the hotel steep driveway. Bus station is also close buy and we went to Castle Mola with its incredible view over Taormina. We were lucky as the day was clear and Etna shown it full ‘smoking’ glory.
The cable car was right next to the hotel - it goes down to a beach.
We went also to a Lido, with its courtesy shuttle minibus.
All beaches are pebbled and swimming shoes are the must!
The hotel has a nice swimming pool, but water was cold despite warm weather.
Our room was booked with a sea view and it had own terrace with an incredible view over Taormina bay. Beds were uncomfortable - mattresses too hard. The bathroom was small but clean.
All common rooms and halls at Sirius are tastefully furnished and decorated.
We were disappointed with food; every day breakfast was the same. Portions at dinner were on small size, often served not warm enough.
Taormina is a nice town, with fantastic scenery and places to see.
