We stayed at the Sirius in August 2012. The first thing you see on arrival is the magnificent sea view with Mount Etna in the distance. It was even better than the description in the travel brochure. The hotel inside was very Italian and didn't give you the feel of a hotel. The staff were very good and very accomodating. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a room with a side view of the sea and a garden terrace furnished with wrought iron furniture. At first we thought we would of liked a room on the floor above with a full sea view but after seeing that the balconies just fit two garden chairs we realised that we had the best room. The only negative would be that there were three rooms with ajoining terraces so it was not very private. We were lucky in that the other rooms did not use their terraces often. The meals were very good. Breakfast was buffet, with a large choice. Evening meal was waiter service. We found the meals to be very good with choices of all courses every evening. There is lovely pool with snack bar which never seemed to get too overcrowded.The hotel is few minutes from the bus station were you picked up the coach for trips or the bus . If we made another visit to Sicily we would most definately stay at the Sirius.

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.
