“Stunning place for a traveller on a budget!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

The room is beautifully clean and well kept, the staff is very friendly, but many of them do not speak english. The breakfast is not great and there is no wifi in the room, but great value for the price!

We stayed in hotel Elios for 2 nights. Location is very good – on the relatively quiet little street, yet only short distance to the center; 2 minutes walk to beautiful botanic garden. The room is good size, it’s clean, has TV and air conditioner. Great view from the room balcony and the roof terrace, where they serve breakfast if the weather permits. Hotel provides regular continental breakfast. Parking was a slight problem. Hotel does not have its own parking, therefore they are sharing (renting /borrowing) the space from another place. It’s really next to the hotel, but you should leave you car key with hotel employee, so they could move your car as needed to let other cars in and out. The street is really narrow for such maneuvers; however hotel employees did a very good job. Overall – it’s good value for money.

A very decent small hotel 5 minutes away from Taormina. Next to the gardens and tennis courts. The staff were extremely friendly, resourceful and helpful to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast can be indoor and outdoor as well

We stayed in Elios in June and although we had a shaky start when our booking couldn't be found the staff were very helpful and upgraded us at no extra charge.
The room was as would be expected at this price, fairly basic but clean and tidy - you don'y come here though for the room - its the view! We were fortunate enough to have a room the led onto the roof terrace and the views of the sea and Etna were superb.
Breakfast was tasty and served on a terrace too.
The location was also ideal for us, it is slightly out of the main town so is quieter and overlooks the public gardens which are well worth a wander through. It is still only 5 minutes walk to the main centre though.
The only downsdie for us - a stupid american woman who didn't understand how to talk quietly - even in the early hours of the morning!

A small nice hotel away from the hustle and bustle of central Taormina but in less than a five minute walk you end up in the heart of Taormina.

We were very satisfied with the hotel. The receptionists were extremely helpful and were quite fluent in English. The room comprised of 3 beds, tv, a/c, minibar. We had a small ensuite with all the necessities and everything was very clean. The views from the room were fantastic and even more so from the terrace.
Breakfast, though not food that we were used to was quite good and filling.

I would surely recommend this hotel and would defiantly stay there again.

This hotel was a very good value. We stayed at this hotel for three nighta and it was a very good home base for travel throughout the region including as far as Cefalu.
The staff were very nice, advised us about our car and parking costs and about family restaurants that were inexpensive for the area. We stayed in room 522, which had a wonderful view of the sea and must be one of their best rooms. The room was what you'd expect to find in Italy at this price point: it was dated but relatively clean with good bedding and A/C. The fixtures in the bath were old but adequate and the shower worked fine. In all, Id recommend this hotel. The people were very friendly and breakfast was what you'd expect at this price: bread, juice, coffee and yogurt. Just minimal, but at this price of about $100 Euro a night for four people, I can't complain.

Room Tip: ask fior 522

We stayed here two nights in May, 2011. It is a simple but very well run establishment with an absolutely magnificent view of the sea and Mount Etna from the rooftop terrace and from some rooms. It’s well located next to a major park that also has great views, and a short walk up to the town center. The staff is quite friendly and helpful, the breakfast is typical of hotels in this price range. I was able to park right outside the hotel for a minimal fee. An excellent value.
