Was the most wonderful place. The location was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. They found out it was my birthday and left a bottle of champagne in my room. The rooftop balcony was beautiful and they allowed us to use it even after we'd checked out while we were waiting for our plane. Overall a great place - would highly recommend.

I never had a so special breakfast in Italy; really super. The location is the best; main corso umberto. The staff is very kind. The hotel Taodomus is modern and clean, cosy and elegant.
Taodomus is definitively a great option where to stay in the epensive Taormina.

We finished our honeymoon in this fantastic hotel. The staff were so friendly they made us feel so special, a bottle of prosecco awaited us in our hotel as special treat. Our room overlooked the Corso Umberto yet the room was still quiet at night. The breakfast was the best we had all trip with a selection of fruit, meats, cheese (the cream cheese was the best) and an extra menu for eggs and pancakes. With a view out to mount etna who couldn't like the back drop. Shame there was no dinner restaurant in the hotel but the evening honesty bar made up for that!

The room had lots of nice fittings and fixtures that my wife, a designer, adored. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows fantastic so we slept well every night. There was a always a buzz outside the hotel being, as it is located so close to the Corso Umberto, but still so peaceful in the inside.

The staff helped us organise a trip to Mount Etna whilst provided us, and every other guest, accurate information of where to go and how to get there. We really recommend this hotel.

This was our second visit to Hotel Taodomus with a group. The staff was still wonderful, multilingual, and most helpful. The breakfasts are to die for with a fabulous view from the rooftop terrace toward Mt. Etna.

The lift is small, but so are those in most European hotels, so that is not an issue. The staff will take your bags up to your room and bring them back down at the end of your stay.

There is a reason we keep returning here. Right on Corso Umberto on the quieter end, it is so convenient to all we see and do. And parking is a five-minute walk away, if that.

This is a nice hotel and perfectly located if you want to be on Corso Umberto. The rooms are small and whilst service on the whole is good the reception is often unattended which means that you wait outside for a while before someone opens the door. the lift is also problematic and so we didn't risk that too often. Unfortunately we got stuck in it when checking out. The staff did respond very quickly to the alarm though.

We really enjoyed the breakfast and the views from the terrace. Our room had a terrace which overlooked the Corso Umberto and it was wonderful to watch the activity build up over the course of the day.

Dear SevLondon,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your review and for the positive comments about our breakfast, location and views.
Although our is classified as a 3star hotel, the reception is attended 24hour per day.
It happened only once during your stay that we had to assist a guest in his room because he was not feeling good, but as you have mentioned in your review, it has taken just a while for the staff to come. Furthermore, our guests usually appreciate the security offered by the fact that the access to the hotel is always supervised by the hotel staff.

At the arrival we always show to the guests how to use the lift. Moreover, the instructions about the lift are placed both inside and outside the lift. The reason why you got stuck when checking out was just that you went inside the lift together with all your luggage and what happend is that the sensors inside the lift have been blocked by your luggage but, as you underlined, the reception staff has always been ready to assist you promptly with the luggage and the lift.

However, we are happy to know that you had a nice time here at Taodomus hotel and we hope to welcome you back here in the future.

Kind Regards,

The staff of Taodomus Hotel

Finished in 2007, this small hotel feels brand new. Sheer white linen curtains frame the windows, large mirrors (2) make the already spacious room appear bigger, tasteful antiquing of closet lends an old world feel to this modern-equipped room. Helpful, multi-lingual staff, truly sumptuous breakfast included, good wifi - great location on town's Main Street. Staff restaurant recommendations spot on. Great choice!

We stayed two nights near the end of our trip and it was exceptional.

The reception staff was very helpful regarding where and how to park, and then get back to the hotel.

The hotel is located on the main shopping street which is traffic limited so you have to park outside the gate. It is really pretty simple - Set your GPS for Porto Catania. Park. Take the elevator up to the 7th level, and you are only about 200 meters from the hotel.

Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace and includes omelets and crêpes made to order.

The reception staff must have noticed my birthday on my passport because when we returned to our room in the afternoon, we had a bottle of Prosecco iced and waiting for us with a happy birthday greeting. A very nice touch!

We had a street view room, but did not notice any noise. The room was a bit small but adequate, and considering the cost and location, not a problem.

The elevator runs from the first to the fourth floors. Pack accordingly because you have to get your bags up to the first floor to use the elevator.

Taormina is a beautiful village, especially after 4:30 when the bus people and cruise ship people leave. This is a great place to stay and enjoy the quiet early mornings and evenings.
