Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a great hotel with spacious and very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was fantastic. The views from the rooftop terrace are wonderful. The customer service is wonderful. The only thing that keeps me from saying this hotel is excellent is their loud rooftop evening music that plays until 10:30 or 11:00 pm. This prevents anyone in the hotel from going to sleep until it stops. Even if you close your windows, which you need to keep open for regulating temperature, you still hear the music inside. It is sad this is done because it probably keeps the neighbors awake too.

Staff are extremely helpful and will assist with everything Taormina has to offer …it’s close to the main centre of town. I had the superior room and it’s really nice and modern. Nice big shower and comfy bed. The breakfast for $10 euros is also worth doing - there’s a lovely open rooftop balcony to enjoy your breakfast each morning.

Love this hotel. The folks in the bar made us feel so welcomed. Enrico made the most delicious Irish coffee I have ever had. He made fresh cream in a shaker that was outstanding. We give him 5 stars for his kindness. Also must mention Stefano, he made sure we were well taken care of and always gave us that wonderful smile. Reccomend this hotel, just don't miss the Sky Bar.

A lovely hotel close to the Duomo. All rooms booked were very clean with all amenities. The hotel has a back entrance through its pretty garden which leads to a small square before the final flight of steps just in front of the Duomo. Staff at the reception are very nice and helpful. The reception is always manned and open the back gate immediately when one rings. Breakfast is a nice mix of sweet and savoury. We are repeat customers and have always enjoyed our stay here. The downside is though the hotel is 3 mins away from the Duomo , way up is not easy for anyone older or with a walking impairment given the steps. Rooms are all nice but some are more modernised and spacious than others. The rooms with a lovely view onto the square can be a slightly noisy when there are celebrants and music at the bars on the steps. Whilst the older people in our group mentioned this fact, the younger people didn’t mind it at all. Parking in front of the hotel is available but limited.

I stayed in Hotel Continental using booking.com with a last minute reservation. The Hotel is in an amazing location with a fantastic view of Mount Etna from the dining room and the veranda. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. We were told we booked an economy room which meant we had a very small room with a poor view and were expected to pay for breakfast. We were not charged for the excellent breakfast on checkout but had to pay 15 Euro a day for parking (would have been more during the high season). Make sure you get a room on the second floor on the side that looks at Mount Etna. This is a beautiful Hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and good service. I would go back again but book my room directly.

Our stay at Hotel Continental in Taormina last week was the most amazing experience with a hospitality business my wife and I have ever had. The hotel itself is top-notch: immaculately clean, with tastefully furnished rooms, comfortable bedding, excellent bathrooms, a rich and varied breakfast buffet (by far the best we've seen at a hotel), etc. The view of Taormina, the sea, and Etna from the terrace is unforgettable. But what pushes Continental to the very top is the staff. We've never been treated with such attention, care and genuine kindness by employees of any business. One would think that we were not first-time visitors who had reserved an economy room but the hotel staff's best friends, beloved family members, or celebrities. Speaking of that economy room reservation: it was upgraded to a superior room with a terrace just because one was available. We did not even have to ask for it. Our friends, with whom we traveled to Taormina from Siracusa for a short visit, were so impressed by Continental that they decided to come back and spend two more nights at the hotel a week later. And their second stay was even more memorable than the first. We look forward to coming back to Continental again and again.

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Continental, very good breakfast on the terrace. Beds were very comfortable, nice shower. Location was perfect very close to the center. We used valet parking so we did not have to drive to the parking lot. It was only few euros more to avoid the headache. Very good choice.

This was a great hotel in a super convenient location in Taormina. The rooms were spacious and clean. The Sky Roof was a really nice spot to hang out if you chose to spend an evening in the hotel. We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel since we were out and about exploring the city but the service and reception desk were very helpful with any questions we had. I recommend as it is steps away from the main square where all the shops and dining can be found.
