My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in March 2014 and had a lovely time! The hotel is in a great location right at the start of the Main Street in Taormina and has an absolutely breathtaking view of the amazing mount Etna from the breakfast terrace! Our room was nice with a view of the Main Street, the breakfast was also nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Overall I would recommend this hotel and I would stay here again!

This is a very nice hotel right on the main street in Taormina. The staff are really attentive. The rooms I suspect do vary. Ours was on the first floor overlooking the street. It was a good size, with balcony, but the aircon unit took up two thirds of the balcony space. Our bathroom was very small, the shower tiny. I am slight, and I could not bend down in it. However, book a room with a sea view - they seemed to have better sized balconies, and I expect, bigger bathrooms! I would also ask for a room higher up, so the views would be better. There are 3 floors. The breakfast terrace was amazing - views over Etna and the sea, and the hills behind us. It couldn't be faulted. And breakfast was always fresh. It was really worth every penny just for this, and it is not expensive.

Room Tip: Sea view, 3rd floor would be best.

The breakfast at the hotel is wonderful,they bake a different torte each morning,made with olive oil so it is not so fattening!On our last morning we left at 5 am and Mario so kindly packed us take-away breakfast!The noise from Corso Umberto travels and there were some extremely noisy guests on our last night.Great spot and central.Taormina is superb!Lovely restaurants nearby and Mt.Etna is a must do if you are able to do some walking.I would return tomorrow!

It's an amazing and silent place with the beatiful view at the Etna and at the Ionic sea. The staff is friendly and very hospitable. The breakfast was excellent with the homemade cakes.
The mood of relax, the shine and the beauty of the sicilian nature were made our short travel unforgettable.

Hotel del Corso is a small family owned hotel with excellent, friendly service and hospitality. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The AC and Wi-Fi work well. Our room had a nice little balcony with table and chairs overlooking Palazzo Santo Stefano, a beautiful garden, and the sea in the distance. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace with gorgeous views of the sea, the town and Mt. Etna.

The location is perfect, being right on the main drag Corso Umberto with tons of shops, restaurants, cafes, and historical sights. It's right by the Porta Catania city gate making it easy to get a taxi or arrive by taxi since inside the gate is a pedestrian zone. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the Greek Theater and Parco Comunale, 10 minutes to the Roman Theater. Hotel del Corso is an excellent choice for Taormina and good value in an expensive town.

Room Tip: Sea view and street views are both nice.

We stayed in this hotel last week in september. Very friendly and helpful staff, always ready to help their guests. Wonderful view from the top terrace,overlooking the town & hills around while having breakfast. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the street below. No problem sleeping, as the room has thick curtains, and soundproof balcony doors. Absolutely recommended if you are visiting Taormina!
