My wife and I spent 2 nights in Taormina en route to Siracusa at the splendid boutique Hotel Taodamus on Corso Umberto, the town's principal thoroughfare. Everything about the place was absolutely spot on, as other travellers have noted.Service,in particular, was excellent, and the staff seem to have a real enthusiasm about customer service, hence one of my few absolute top scores!

The weather was poor on our first full day, but the skies cleared on the Tuesday, and from the breakfasting patio you get a majestic view of the town and Mount Etna...absolutely breathtaking.

Lovely and comfortable rooms, tasteful decor, and a varied breakfast menu with homemade marmalade.

I shan't say any more- just go there and see for yourselves!!

Beautiful hotel with a very pleasant staff. The rooms have great decor and are very comfortable. The breakfast is on a rooftop patio and the service is impeccable. The hotel is directly across from the gelateria. It is a short walk to anywhere in Taormina. There is a supermarket a short distance from this property. Overall a great stay.

We stayed for a week at this lovely hotel in Taormina with our 3 children. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we felt at home immediately. The views of Mount Etna from the breakfast room were wonderful and the breakfast buffet was varied and good quality. Guilia and her team also cooked a la carte dishes to order. Our boys loved the crepes and we loved the coffee and the great service! The wifi was a good, as was the use of the computer, if required.

Taormina is a stunning place to visit with beautiful sights round every corner. It's also compact enough to explore easily by foot. The lifestyle is great - loved the appertivo hours and having icecream for breakfast. Back to reality now and a diet!

We had an the unexpected pleasure of staying in this little hotel, situated right in the heart of Taormina on the via corso umberto. The view from the roof terrace is sublime and the breakfast was varied and delicious. All the staff were wonderfully friendly and extremely helpful, anticipating all our needs. A definite gem - we will be back.

The hotel is on the main street (Corso Umberto). Taodumos passes you without notice from the street however once you get inside you are completely taken by its class and grace. Rooms are small but very cosy and neat. The breakfast offers you an à la carte menu in an elegant terrace with a good view to the volcano Etna. Can’t think about a better way to start your day.

It's a small, absolutely lovely hotel. It was 69 steps to our room (yes they have an elevator) but it was great fun. Really lovely rooms (all of them). Taorimina is quite the tourist spot; however, just walk up the hill and start climbing steps and it is great. Don't bother with buses -- the town above is really an easy walk from the hotel. You can also walk down to the beach -- just look for some steps going down (it is quite easy) and you can return via the road -- it's fun. Great espresso across the street and tons of restaurants. We stayed a week ( a bit too long), but quite a fantastic place to stay. The breakfast is absolutely THEEEEE best with theee most incredible women running it. Yes, Maria is fantastic. Remember, tour buses go there and it can really be packed. At night -- it is just great! We'll be back! Oh, great wines at the little
store up the street, and fabulous pizza and rice balls just down by the first fountain.

Room Tip: We had the ocean view/Etna view -- nice! However, when they fire up the pizza oven below, it gets r...

I stayed at this hotel last August. Since the period was in high season, the room rate was 200 euro per night, not so cheap. However, the location was very convenient since this was actually in the shopping street and closed to the parking area outside the town. Also, the room was spacious, cleaned and sophisticated. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful. I heard the street in the midnight could be noisy, but we did not hear much noise from outside, maybe, because of the thick glass window. If the budget is allowed, I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The room where the noise from the street is less.

Dear Guest,

Thank for your review and all the beautiful compliments on every single aspect of Taodomus Hotel.
We are sorry to read about your consideration on the room's rate, but as you know, and everybody knows, traveling during the high season is more expensive and unfortunately this happens all over the word, not only in Taormina.

Maybe you can also consider to travel during the low season. However we will always be happy to welcome you again!

Kind Regards,

Olga Sturiale
