Hotel Taodomus
Ranked #5 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2010

Hotel Taodomus is conveniently located in the heart of Taormina. The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms are well-sized and excellent value for money. The terrace overlooking the sea and the Etna volcano is a real gem, a perfect way to start the day as breakfast is served there.
The staff was very nice and helpful. We were celebrating a birthday and they arranged for us to have drinks on the terrace, ordered flowers and assisted us with buying a cake and flowers.
The hotel is on the main street in Taormina, close to shops and restaurants and also close to one of the main car parks (there is a 40% discount for Taodomus guests).
Only one downside. We could hear every noise coming from the other rooms e.g. other guests' alarms, showers, or mobile phones ringing, and this could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. We were not bothered by the noises coming from the street instead (other reviews mentioned this problem), but we stayed at the hotel in May and the town was really quiet at night. We do not know if this can be a major problem in the high season.
Overall, our stay at Taodomus was very pleasant and we will definitely choose this hotel again, should we go back to Taormina.

First off, Toarmina is a wonderful town and was a fantastic place to visit. My buddy and I took a trip exploring Sicily and we were lucky enough to book ourselves at the Hotel Taodomus.

This was the PERFECT hotel for us. It was a small, boutique hotel. The room wasn't overly large but served us well. The best thing about this hotel was it's location -- just at the end of the main street for shopping and strolling. Our balcony had a gorgeous view. In addition, the adequate continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day and was on the 4th floor -- the partially covered roof of the hotel. The view there was also stunning. My two photos below are 1--of the view from our hotel balcony and 2--the view from the breakfast area on the roof. We learned every corned of Taormina (which is surprisingly large) during our 4 day stay. We'd seen all sort of hotels, some "fancier" but none in such a great location.

The front desk staff at the Hotel Taodoms were very friendly but not intrusive. They were also quite helpful in assisting us with navigating the twisty-turny narrow streets if we were seeking something in particular. By the end of our trip, I felt they began to know us personally and took an interest in making sure we had the nicest time possible while visiting their city. As an example, they recommended we try the "Godfather" Tour. As it was about 170 Euros, we were hesitant and thought it might be a bit tacky. My God! That was the best time of our trip! Our private guide was wonderful. he took us into the less touristy areas of Taormina at the mountain top and other more rural towns. Churches, cemetaries, clifftops, cafes. It was a day-long, 6 hour tour and was a wonderful recommendation by the hotel staff.

My only "complaint" and it's not really a complaint is I would have liked a full sized bath tub in our room. The shower stall was very small and closed with two accordian-type doors. Big deal! Overall, this was a great hotel and for it's comparitive low price, was a real find. If you have the opportunity, I'd highly recommend it. We stayed in three different cities while in Sicily--Palermo, Siracusa, and here in Taormina. The hotels in all were adequate but due to it's location and helpful, friendly staff, Hotel Taodomus was our favorite!

Hotel Taodomus is the perfect accomodation in Taormina for it's great position in the centre of town, it's friendly staff and its clean, comfortable rooms that are beautifully decorated in various themes. With the generous breakfast included it is not an expensive place to stay and would be a memorable experience for the first timer to Taormina.

We spent a really enjoyable three nights at Taodomus last week. (4-7 May 2010)

The hotel is right on the main street in Taormina so you've got the best of this great destination right on your doorstep. The one small downside to this is that you have to park in the multistory car park 5 mins walk away. However, the hotel provided a voucher for a substantial discount which was a nice touch.

The staff are friendly and helpful, especially the lady (sorry, we should have got her name) who served us breakfast on the roof terrace each morning and cleaned our rooms. She always had a friendly smile regardless of how busy she was. Great service. Incidentally, breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea and Mt Etna was as fantastic as the choice that was on offer.

The room (Verde Menthe) was pretty, clean and tidy and the (approx) 25ft long balcony overlooking the main street was a highlight running the length of the exterior beyond the two big french windows.

All in all this was a the perfect place for us to spend the last three days of our little tour of Sicily.

A top class boutique hotel - firmly four star quality despite the three star grading. More like home than a hotel. Extremely well fitted out, with the roof terrace for breakfast being a real treat. Ideal location in the main pedestrian shopping street, with the multi-story car park close by. The small team of english speaking staff are excellent - friendly and the most helpful one could hope for.

We stayed for 6 nights in mid February, and enjoyed every minute! Maria, and Giulia made our stay so warm, and welcoming, we hated to leave. Breakfasts were delivered to our room, because of weather conditions. There was enough food for 6 people, and believe me, the 2 of us ate it all! Absolutely wonderful small hotel, that should be rated much higher. Recommend to everyone.......
