Reviewed 27 May 2012

We stayed at the Taodomus for two weeks and considered it technically just about perfect: location, cleanliness, facilities, plus luxury touches like slippers being provided and the thickness of the bathroom towels. (And a kettle! Great for us English tea-drinkers!)

However what made it really special was the staff team. Giulia and Gabriella who do the breakfasts were just lovely and the front-desk team, consisting of la bella Maria and Alfio whose smile lights up Reception, were knowledgeable, helpful and charming. We were genuinely sad to say goodbye to these guys.

Hotel location is excellent (in the main pedestrian zone). Staff is really helpful, and the breakfast on the roof terrace gives you the outstanding view. Service is overcome our expectation. We will recommend hotel Taodomus to our friends.

We spent a perfect holiday in Taormina in Hotel Taodomus, three amazing days! We loved so much having breakfast in the roof garden overlooking the sea and the Etna: fresh handmade cookies, sweeties and a delicious cappuccino. All the staff have been very kind and helpful, thanks to Maria and Alfio, your advises have been precious.
We appreciate the wifi fast connection and the perfect cleaning of the room too.

This hotel is very centrally located on the main drag. The room was quite big and the hotel is very nicely remodelled. The service was quite nice and breakfast on the terrace quite unexpected. All this makes for a very good stay as long as you don't try to sleep in a room facing the street with a noisy restaurant which was open until 4 in the morning. We tried to dose, forget sleeping but were woken up by every eruption of laughter! We did tell the hotel about our experience and they sympathetically said that people do go out on a Saturday night, surely some also sleep, just not in this place.

Room Tip: Don't say in rooms facing the street (don't know if there any other)

Dear LKM09,

First of all, let us thank you for your positive comments about the room, service and breakfast.

We would like to specify that all our rooms are soundproofed and provided with special curtains and windows, in order to provide our guests with maximum comfort. Despite this, we realize that the noise level is something subjective and this is demonstrated by the fact that many other guests who stayed here at weekends and gave the sleep quality full marks.

This inconvenience aside, we really hope to welcome you here at Taodomus Hotel again in the future.

Best Regards,

Olga Sturiale
Hotel Manager

From start to finish, the staff at Taodomus created an atmosphere of home away from home. The location offered proximity to all, but also quiet serenity. The view from the rooftop breakfast room was incredible. It was there for our use even to just sit and have a snack and a glass of wine to enjoy it througout the entire day. Everyone at the desk was attentive and offered helpful suggestions, arranged for taxis and tours. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and highlight of our trip to beautiful Sicily. We recommend Taodomus highly. Grazie.

Room Tip: Book early and request a balcony.

We spent three nights in Taormina. The hotel has an excellent location on Corso Umberto, THE street in Taormina, close to restaurants, bars and sights of interest. The parking of Porta Catania is just 200 meters away from the hotel, very convenient, plus you get a 40% reduction with a voucher from the hotel. The hotel has a wonderful terrace with a breathtaking view of the Etna, where breakfast is served. Breakfast was delicious, especially the warm selection and the staff was very efficient and friendly.

We had a room which overlooked the back side of the hotel, the “Fruti di boschi.” Although the room and the bathroom was nice, plus there was a little balcony with chairs and table from which you could partially see the sea and the surrounding roofs, unfortunately it was right above the pizzeria Vecchia Taormina! And despite the fact there were double glazed windows you could still hear the clients from the pizzeria at least till 12:30 p.m. and the garbage collectors at 6:45 a.m.

The staff was very friendly, especially Alfio, always with a smile on his face and with great suggestions about the city. If you are not a light sleeper like myself I highly recommend this place.

Dear SophiaK,

Thank you for the review and for your very positive opinion on our service, breakfast and staff.

Referring to your comments about the noise inconvenience, we would like to inform you that the garbage is no longer collected from near the hotel, therefore that kind of noise does not disturb our guests anymore.

Furthermore, we also provided the rooms with special curtains, in order to reduce the external sounds.

Thanks again for your nice review from all the staff and we hope to welcome you back here again in the future.

Kindest Regards,

Olga Sturiale
