We had a great time staying at your hotel. The apartment was very spacious and nice, with much light and just everything else we needed including the washing machine. The breakfast on the terrace was really good and with a nice view. The stuff was extremely helpful and friendly. Sorry for all the trouble we caused you with our clothes flying down from the balcony :) We would love to come back and stay at your hotel again.

Taormina is a lovely place, but since it is also a very trendy and expensive place. Thus, I am so glad there is an affordable option for visiting Taormina. Not only in Hotel Condor affordable, it has a great view and staff. My fiance and I enjoyed an afternoon strolling around the town and taking the cable car down to the beach. We returned in the evening and enjoyed a bottle of wine on our balcony - it was perfect. The hotel was so close to town - perhaps a 5 minute walk to the city gates. We returned to town in the evening for dinner and gelato. We had a perfect time in Taormina, and the hotel staff helped to make it possible - they gave us a map and highlighted all the must see places, as well as answered all of our questions. They always greeted us with a smile. The morning we left, we enjoyed breakfast on the restaurant terrace - it had a beautiful view, and we enjoyed our cappuccinos and breads that were brought to us. Unfortunately, in our haste to sit outside, we did not see that there was a whole table of additional breakfast items inside - so don't walk past them like we did!

The hotel could use some updating, but then again, the price would go up. However, I think there are some small things they could do - such as replacing the shower curtains with newer ones or even better - a door. Also, a new bedspread would spruce up the room a bit. These are not complaints - merely suggestions. I would not hesitate to return to Hotel Condor.

Myself and my partner were very pleased with everything about our experience. From the original booking they were communicative and helpful even though our stay was only for one night. The room was clean and tidy (and the power shower in the bathroom is always a bonus), the staff went out of their way to help us park the car and move our cases, the breakfast was more than we could manage, and the location is easily within walking distance from the town centre, but far enough so that the busy nightlife doesn't intrude. What's not to like?

I stayed at the hotel condor for 4 days at the of May with my 2 girlfriends. The entire staff went out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable. The lovely Illaria and Marcello gave us perfect recommendations for restaurants and attractions in the area. Their suggestions were extremely useful. We were also given an amazing personalized tour of Mount Etna which was purchased as a package with the hotel. It was one of the best experiences of my life! Giuseppe went out of his way to give us in depth lessons of many areas of the volcano. This was a very special treat.
Every morning, a wonderful breakfast is served on the terrace...the view is breathtaking and the food is delicious and plentiful. The rooms were spotless throughout our stay, and very comfortable as per European standards. The value at this hotel truly cannot be beat, as it is very affordable, centrally located, and the staff is plesantly warm and welcoming. We did a European tour for one month, and Hotel Condor was the best hotel we stayed in. I truly cannot say enough good things about this little gem...we are still talking about our stay in Taormina and hotel condor! We loved it!!

Nice, small B&B just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Taormina. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Plentiful breakfast. No snack bar, as advertised though. TV is fine if you can speak Italian, if not just stick to the music channels. Room was cleaned daily though I'm unsure if the floor was ever swept as my feet were always instantly dirty when walking on it. Not worth crying over though.
