“Clean, Compact and Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

Hotel Soleado is about a 5 mintue walk from the main street and tourist area. The hotel was spotlessly clean and Roberto the owner was very helpfull. The room was basic but adequate. We had a lateral view of the sea from our balcony but you had to stretch your neck just to see the water. My one complaint was the shower. It was so small(about 70cm x 70cm) and made life very difficult while trying to shower. aprat from that it was fine. The price was competeitive for Taormina. Overall I would have no hesitations in reccomending the hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The rooms with the full Sea view had a much bigger balcony and looked like a bigger room inide as we...

This hotel is a breath of fresh air in Taormina. We had a truly great holiday and Roberto and Rosetta (owners) were so helpful and attentive to us. It is a small hotel which made this feel like home. Rooms were of good standard and very clean. The outdoor pool was quite cold but as it was October you could allow for this temperature. It is a litlle out of the town so all was quiet - however ten minutes at a slow pace will get you into the centre where you can also enjoy the hustle and bustle if you prefer. Breakfast is served directly to the table each morning by Roberto and Rosetta and they always had time for a chat as they were doing so. Anyone who is looking for a completely relaxing holiday will love this hotel.

Room Tip: We had pool view rooms which were fine however maybe for a little more privacy the lateral sea view...

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days and really enjoyed it . We had a superior double room with an enormous balcony and wonderful sea view. Roberto, the owner was very helpful and friendly as were all of the staff. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from town centre in a nice quiet location. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast provided very filling with a choice of rolls/toast/pastries/cheese/meat jams etc. Taormina itself is a lovely town with lots to offer in terms of restuarants and some great shops. We would definetly go back to Taormina and the Hotel Soleado.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room with sea view.

First off all, the friendly service provided from the first day till the very last makes your mind at rest. The staff makes you feel comfty. The rooms are pretty clean, spacious and very nice (above 2 star). Nice pool area and only 5min walk to the centre,great for exploring taormina and surroundings. Definately a good choice

We stayed at this hotel as an ovenight stop as we planned to spend a couple of days in Sicily. The owner (Roberto) was instantly likeable and made us feel welcome straight away.
Our room was spacious and had all the amenities expected, including very quiet air conditioning which was appreciated in the August heat of Sicily. The swimming pool is in a pretty setting, with trees and shrubbery offering plenty of shade .
Situated at the top of a steepish road the Soleado was a five minute walk into Taormina centre.
We would happily go back to the Soleado just for the wonderful sea view from our balcony!

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a sea view. You won't be dissapointed.

Taormina is a must ... although expensive. Soleado is located within 10 min walk to the main spots incl. the cable car (down to the beaches), long shopping street, via teatro greco ... "life"; it is situated at the very end of a side road (very quiet place).

We received a very warm welcome from the owner (I suppose) who parked away our car. The parking is not for free! We got charged 8EUR. Speedy check-in. A young boy took us to the room; which was located on the ground floor. It had a big terrace overlooking the coast (or bits of it) and the pool.

The furniture was very old; twin beds (requested double); small and old TV screen which didn't work; no minibar = hostel decor. Bathroom was renovated BUT ... when you took the shower, water was all over the place (can actually see on the pictures). The lavatory seat was falling onto your back ... not a comfortable experience.

And here comes the unique thing (as you can see on the pictures). The wall on our terrace was a highway for ants - I've never seen anything like that in my life. So on one hand it was a cool experience, but for others could be something disgusting.

The pool is a nice place to relax ... gets dirty at times.

Breakfast very limited / portioned. Probably worst we experienced in Sicily.

We paid 86EUR incl. parking. In terms of the quality, it was the worst place we had in Sicily (out of 7 hotels), and the most expensive one. If I was to visit Taormina again, I will look for another place to stay. I would only come back to Soleado if the value for money was better.
