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.

Judith S wrote a review Aug 2023

The most wonderful 10 room boutique hotel in the centre of Taormina. From the moment of check in with Julia to departure we felt part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble. All recommendations from Julia were top class and her local knowledge of bars, restaurants and beach clubs to fit our budget were excellent.
Breakfast and cocktails on the terrace over looking Mount Etna and the sea were outstanding. Such a wonderful selection of choice at breakfast, freshly prepared with the finest Italian ingredients, we could not fault it. Any type of coffees, smoothies of the day and teas were made available.
The rooms were immaculate and the bedding and soundproof rooms allowed for blissful nights sleep, with home made bisuits and fresh water replenished every day. Towels and toiletries in the room were of excellent quality.
It was just wonderful to stand on our small balcony in our rom watching the world go by with Italians in their finery.
Shopping in the local streets was a joy and some top end stores just opening including Dior, Louis Vuitton etc.
This hotel is simply the BEST and highly recommended, book a stay here you will not be disappointed.
Easy transfer to Catania airport.

This hotel rates the 5 star reviews. Wonderful, helpful front staff. Breakfast and evenings on the terrace were favorites. For breakfast, there are 2 lovely ladies who will create your breakfast from a menu. This includes hand squeezed orange juice. Then, there is a no host, honesty bar where you can mix your cocktails. The night time view of the Mt Etna red glowing lava flow is fascinating. Rooms are a little small. Worthwhile to enjoy a beach day at the Isola Bella beach but in the free public area beach to the right at a small island. Take your water shoes since it is a rocky beach but there is a vendor selling beach shoes for 10 euros. Walk down to the beach but then catch a shuttle bus to return.

Never have we visited a hotel with such an outstanding and heartwarming staff!!!

1. Contact before the stay
We had a pleasant interaction with Signora Valentina before our stay. We asked her for some special requests e.g. vegan options for breakfast or a bottle of Prosecco for a birthday. She was more than happy to help us out and prepare everything as we wanted in advance.

2. Arrival and Reception
The Arrival was more than friendly. We were welcomed warmly and were brought to our rooms, our luggage was sent up by the tiny, sweet little elevator. The Receptionists ( Valentina and Daniele) helped us with every question we had during our stay and even gifted us the bottle of Prosecco and arranged it with snacks on the rooftop for the birthday.

3. Rooftop and Rooms
The rooms are as beautifull as they are full of character. Not that big, which is totaly fine in an buklding within the historic centre but with everything you could ask for during a visit.
The rooftop terrace is one of a kind with a beautifull view of mount etna and the mediterranean Sea. Thats also where breakfast is served

4. Breakfast and staff
These two aspects are the true gems of Hotel Taodomus. The vegetarian Breakfast on the rooftop terrace is charmingly made by the chef Daniela in the open kitchen. You can choose between a vast variety of dishes à la carte (Crepes, french toast, sauted vegetables, tiramisu, cakes etc.) The breakfast is served by the insanely warm and amicable Maria and her staff. One of us two was also vegan, why we asked for some vegan options for breakfast. And , oh Lord, they didnt dissappont us. Every morning there was another little vegan surprise-dish they made up just for us, like vegan meatballs, chickpea-omelette... We were also able to order vegan crepes or cookies and their selection of milk contained soy, rice and almond milk was also great. I would definetly recommend this hotel to every vegetrian or vegan Person.

This breakfast and the heartwarming Cozines the staff did provide were really the hidden treasures of Hotel Taodomus.

Thank you so much for these amazing days. See you at our next Stay in Taormina.

Great hotel with friendly and helpful staff in central Taormina. There is a beautiful view from the rooftop patio where the tasty made to order breakfast is served each morning.
We got in quite late and the staff were ready to check us in and recommend places to eat. We had accumulated quite a bit of laundry from our vacation by the time we arrived, the staff helped us find a laundromat a short walk away. They also arranged a shuttle to a great lido nearby where we spent a couple of days swimming at the beach, and also arranged a taxi for us to the train station when we departed. As the hotel is on the Main Street, it can be a little noisy into the night in busier months - the rooms is fairly well soundproofed, but if you are someone that prefers to sleep with a window open for fresh air, consider bringing earplugs. We hope to return in the future.

From the first contact we felt very welcome at the Taodomus hotel in the heart of Taormina.
We had a room with balcony overlooking the street and though there is no privacy at the balcony it was nice to open the doors at night to get a fresh breeze. The room was rather small but clean and so was the bathroom. The bed was huge and gave good night sleep - befor waking up to the excellent breakfast with the superb view og Etna and the bay. The staff was so nice and friendly and took care of the guests as if we were relatives. The hotel has "only" 10 rooms I think which I love, it is very elegant and stylish, and you have you own entrance and dont have to walk through the lobby.
Parking is safe at the nearby parking house. I wsih that the hotel could have a deal for their guests as you have nowhere else to park your car. Would love to come back and book a room with seaview.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights to cap off a wine tour of Sicily. The location is right on the main street, Corso Umberto and just a very short (30 yards) walk from the taxi station (near the Duomo). Staff were extremely helpful, rooms are nice, clean and well maintained. Breakfast is a highlight and really exceptional. Will definitely stay again on our next trip.

We loved everything about our stay at Taodomus. We had a decent-sized, quiet room with a beautiful balcony and view of the Mediterranean. Valentina did a fantastic job getting us settled in and helping us plan our stay in Taormina, and Daniele followed up when he was at the front desk. Although we are not vegetarians, we found plenty to satisfy us during breakfasts on the beautiful rooftop. The location on the main street also is perfect, within walking distance of many very good restaurants that Valentina recommended, and not too far from the large parking garage just outside the town.

Hotel Taodomus is an absolutely delightful boutique hotel in the heart of Taormina. It is the perfect place to stay in this magical town. Daniel, at reception, was so welcoming and helpful. He helped us figure out the best place to eat dinner and called ahead for us to secure a table. The hotel has a lovely rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of Naxos and Mt Etna. We enjoyed a casual happy hour up on the terrace as well as a delicious breakfast. I came with a good friend of mine. We shared suite #3 that was set up as 2 twin beds for us. The room was immaculate and comfortable. Not large - just the right size for the two of us for one night with a desk and large armoire. We also had a small balcony with a partial view of the ocean. The bathroom has all the modern amenities and is small but well thought out. The hotel is located just past the entrance to the town center - which makes it very easy to bring your bags in from the parking area. The location is ideal. The entrance is right on the main pedestrian drag, however the room we stayed in was very quiet. I can’t wait to come back with my husband and stay longer!

After much research on many sites, we decided to go to Taodomus Hotel because the reviews were all excellent. Boy were they right! This hotel is a quaint, immaculate, modern hotel located very conveniently on the main street. Only a large door is the indication that you would enter to a hotel. It is designed with beautiful marble, modern furniture and a huge staircase or a quaint elevator if you don't like stairs. Our room was large with a King bed which was very comfortable. A large bathroom and a small terrace with an incredible view of Mt Etna are the special features. Whoever designed this hotel kept its customers in mind. There was also a small refrigerator with drinks and water, a safe, and a lighted closet. Mattress was very comfortable! The top floor has a terrace with comfortable furniture to sit and see Mt Etna or watch the sun set which was so special as it changed every day. Breakfast is served there too. Meats, cheeses, fruits, eggs any way and plenty of pastries were available every day. Also a self serve bar is available at night. The location is perfect as I said on the main street but never did we hear any noise. Staff was very helpful with restaurant choices. The place up a very narrow stairway had the best rabbit we ever ate! The owners were very attentive to our needs. We traveled for 3 weeks in Sicily and Hotel Taodomus was truly our biggest highlight!

HI Wendy, we actually stayed at Hotel Toadmus in September, what a stunningly beautiful hotel! We used the swimming pool of a neighboring hotel which cost us €10 each and was well worth it! If you ask the Hotel Toadmus staff they can direct you.

Answer from P Trish

The hotel is in the town of Taormina - an easy walk to shops and restaurants, as well as beautiful gardens and squares with wonderful views of the sea below. The hotel can arrange for a comfortable shuttle bus to a number of different beaches nearby. You would catch the shuttle about a block or two from the hotel, and it is a 10 minute ride to the beach. There is no pool.
