Myself and my boyfriend went on holiday to Taormina last summer and it was our best holiday ever. Taormina is very expensive and when researching for hotels Hotel Sole Castello was one of the cheapest and that's why we went for it. We had low expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised. For what we paid it was worth it. They view is breathtaking!! From our room we could see a panoramic view of the town and mount etna very clearly. Most amazing view I have ever seen. The only downside to having that spectacular view was how high up we were and how far away the town was. But we grew to love the walk up and down as the views along the way are gorgeous. There are steps you can take that lead you right into the town, They are very tiring but got easier and enjoyable. I had a huge amount of food on€ this holiday and actually managed to loose a couple of pounds coming home from all of the walking. If you don't want to walk then there is a little bus that can take you up and down. If you time them right they're very handy and cheap. When the bus finishes in the evening and if your out late a taxi is about 15euro. We used to try and bargain with them to make it cheaper but they all say 15euro. The hotel itself is very basic, the outiside looks lovely, gorgeous pool, reception but the rooms are very old fashioned and basic. But we were hardly in the room it was just to shower and eat so it didnt bother us the views made up for that. Further up than hotel sole castello is a small village castlemola. This is worth visiting its stunning! There are lots of windy streets with lots of character. We walked up and I was all dressed up and sweating by the time we got there I recommend getting the bus! We have a beautiful meal there enjoying the views and popped into the little church which is lovely. If you don't mind a bit of walking I highly recommend this hotel.
