“Excellent hotel - perfect location, room and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2010

We both found this hotel to be perfect for our stay. The hotel is located on the Corso Umberto (the main, pedestrianised street). This is the best place to be located as it means no walking up and down hills/steps, or trying to negotiate the traffic laden roads above and below. In Taormina, it also means that you're never 5 minutes walk back to your hotel.
Our room was absolutely lovely - 100% clean, everyday. A superb balcony (overlooking the Corso), a more-then-adequate bathroom. I don't understand why some reviews say the shower was too small: It is a perfect size! The french doors provide complete soundproofing from any activity from the street below.
The staff are highly professional - all speak excellent English (although there's nothing wring with staff who can't). They were full of local knowledge, really friendly, yet they allowed us to enjoy our stay in peace. Really - this was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in, and I can't think of a better place to enjoy Taormina than the Taodomus.
Btw, breakfast is excellent - served by a lovely lady, and with breathtaking views of the sea, and Mount Etna.
What more can I say - don't hesitate to book here!

My partner and I have just returned from a perfect stay in Taodomus in Taormina, Sicily.
The staff were friendly and extremely helpful the entire duration of our stay, always able to recommend a nice pizzeria (especially Pizzeria Zuccara just across the road), or local information in general. We were very happy with the room; we stayed in Frutti di Bosco which had a partial sea view with balcony. The rooms were very elegantly decorated and noticeably clean. The view from this room was beautiful as we had a view of the sea, belltower, and general pretty Sicilian landscape in sight.
The breakfast was served on the roof terrace which was stunning for the breathtaking views of Mount Etna and the Meditteranean and the food was plentiful and fresh.
The lady who served us breakfast was very friendly and we would always chat to her. We also found Maria to be extremely sweet and cheerful who also gave us a very strong complimentary drink on the roof terrace one evening.
The hotel itself was a nice size with only ten rooms, perfectly situated on the main street Corso Umberto, exactly where you want to be in easy access to all restaurants, bars, shops and perfect for a leisurely stroll and a tasty ice cream.
All in all, I cannot find any negative points in this hotel. We had a truly wonderful experience in Taormina.

On our first night we decided to extend our stay in this small hotel from 2 nights to 4 and I'll tell you why. From the moment we set foot in the door the hospitality we received was exceptional. Olga, Maria and Luisa (and a guy whose name I can't remember) make up the reception team and they can't do enough for you. They recommended restaurants and places to visit, gave us directions, provided cellotape to repair our map & organised having our laundry done.
Giulia leads the housekeeping team, and puts in a huge effort to provide the most delicious and varied breakfast we had in a hotel in the 5 weeks we were travelling. Her cheery disposition sets the scene in the roof top breakfast room which affords a spectacular view of Taormina.
Olga (owner) is to be congratulated on her hotel. The rooms are spotless and well furnished with tea and coffee facilities (rare in Sicily & Italy) and slippers provided. A computer with internet access is available for guests free of charge. Parking is available a quick 5 minute walk away and is very reasonably priced with the 40% discount offered by the hotel. The team Olga has chosen obviously love working in the hospitality industry. We long to return!

This is a very good hotel conveniently situated to visit Taormina. The breakfast is very nice with only the freshest products, and the terrace on which it is served has great views on the seaside and Mount Etna. The rooms are clean and simple, all with a terrace so far as I could see. You can park in the Porta Catania car park which is only 5mn away from the hotel and they'll give you a 40% discount on the price if you show a voucher the hotel will give you at checkout.

Spent the last three nights of our time in SIcily here. Great locale right on the main walking street. Had a room in the back and was very comfortable. Great breakfast on a beautiful rooftop dining area looking out to the sea. Wonderful way to end the trip.
Parking is a bit tricky.Call ahead for instructions.

We had a lovely stay, we did some hiking up to the top of the mountain; it was hot but worth the climb. The hills and paths were covered with wild flowers; it was beautiful! The hotel staff was warm and friendly and extremely patient in helping us decide what activities we wanted to pursue. The breakfast was ample, fresh and delicious. The restaurant recommendations were tasty and fairly priced for the area. The pictures I was able to capture I'm sure would win awards! Definitely a place to return to!

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.
