We stayed here for a week and found the hotel typical Italian but with all mod cons. The rooms are exceptional and food very good,very clean too and the views magnificent. The town centre which is beautiful is just a short walk away but you are nowhere near a decent beach.Having said that the hotel pool is really good.
The Hotel owners are very helpful and gave us a really good tip for the Godfather tour in giving us the contact details of some local people who picked us up and spent the whole day driving us around all the film locations and even joined us for lunch.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms as usual cerry a premium but it is worth it.

We stayed at the Sirius for a week of relaxation following an extensive tour of Sicily. We found this to be a charming small hotel decorated in a very unique style with friendly and helpful staff. Everything was very clean, and we enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners in the restaurant. Yes, the steep drive up to the street is a little challenging, but if a moderately overweight 70 year old with one new hip and another waiting to be "replaced" can do it so can anyone. Location is great, an easy walk into town and just a step away from the bus station. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Lowest floor of rooms not accessible by internal lift. Front sea-view recommended

We decided to go upscale at the last minute on venere.com and booked a junior suite in this hotel the day before flying here from Pisa for euro 160 per night. Fabulous view (see pic). Great staff. Fantastic included breakfast and free wifi in the room. And too boot, it's one block from bus station where bus from Catania dropped us off.

Large room has corner balcony with gorgeous views. We are very happy with this hotel and Taormina.

Room Tip: If it's affordable, go for the junior suite with sea view!

So happy to arrive for a 4 days stay in Taormina, we were quite surprised and disappointed as soon as we reached the reception. A very tensed ambiance among the personnel, who hardly took time with us, than a first dinner (on a very beautiful terrace!) which was just uneatable... (Sicily cuisine is very known for its high quality and diversity) and a dark and sad room with no view at all. No glasses available except a plastic one for 2 persons for the bar and the bathroom...). We really thought that one or two stars had fainted for a long time and that the Sirius star was not that bright anymore.

We stayed at Hotel Sirius, Taormina in second half of September. The hotel’s location is excellent, few minutes’ walk uphill to Porta di Messina to enter the old centre of Taormina. Every day we went for walks on Corso Umberto and the hardest part was walking up the hotel steep driveway. Bus station is also close buy and we went to Castle Mola with its incredible view over Taormina. We were lucky as the day was clear and Etna shown it full ‘smoking’ glory.
The cable car was right next to the hotel - it goes down to a beach.
We went also to a Lido, with its courtesy shuttle minibus.
All beaches are pebbled and swimming shoes are the must!
The hotel has a nice swimming pool, but water was cold despite warm weather.
Our room was booked with a sea view and it had own terrace with an incredible view over Taormina bay. Beds were uncomfortable - mattresses too hard. The bathroom was small but clean.
All common rooms and halls at Sirius are tastefully furnished and decorated.
We were disappointed with food; every day breakfast was the same. Portions at dinner were on small size, often served not warm enough.
Taormina is a nice town, with fantastic scenery and places to see.

Room Tip: First floor with a full see view
