            Location! Excellent view and great staff! Very easy in terms of services.

            Too far away from the beach in terms of walking distance!

            Taormina is built into the hillside and this hotel really make you feel that you are suspended above the sea. Very modern Italian chic in an old city, which was fun. Can walk every where in town from here . Great breakfast in a beautiful setting. Very helpful and freindly desk staff . try to book an upper room for better view and then you can walk up a flight or two of stairs to get to lobby instead of using elevator (we were on 2nd floor)

          • Couple
            9.2

            Nice service and excellent service of the staff. Situated in the city centre close to the shopping and restaurants.

            The view of the Ionian sea and mount Etna was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, ready to help with anything.

            The lack of bathrobes.

            5.4

            The only thing I liked about the Hotel Monte Tauro was the location, very central and close to restaurants and shops. There was a nice view of the bay which was unfortunately ruined by bad weather.

            We did not enjoy our stay at the Monte Tauro and will not be recommending the hotel to our friends and family. We found the staff to be extremely rude and unfriendly, except for one really nice girl who was very helpful. The rooms were quite small and we did not feel we got value for money as we felt the rooms were overpriced for their average size. We asked for a Superior Double room and we were given a room with two single beds. When I asked could we possibly change rooms, the guys behind reception reluctantly gave us a key to another room, but wouldn't even lift his head to say hello or goodbye anytime we passed him by during the rest of our stay, just ignoring us. Unfortunately during our stay, the weather was really bad and rain was heavy so it meant staying in our room more than we would have liked, there was only one English speaking channel and no tea or coffee supplied. The water we were to use for washing and showers was brown and obviously dirty. The bar was boring and there was no entertainment or music provided for guests who were stuck in the hotel during bad weather. The food was average and the drinks way overpriced. We were hoping to have our wedding in Sicily next year, and possibly staying at the hotel with over 100 guests, but we will not be returning to The Hotel Monte Tauro.

            Excellent position near park and overlooking bay of Gardia Naxos with view of Mt Etna. Excellent friendly attentative staff, lovely clean rooms with excellent breakfast.

            If arriving by car awkward turn into steep road down to hotel, which could be difficult for less mobile people and young families having to walk up it.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Centrally located , very clean, courteous staff. An ideal place to relax

            The only drawback was the check out time. I had to check out by 11.30 am and my flight home was at 10.30 pm. It would be better if the check out time was optional and if necessary client would pay according to the check out time. (Maybe charging a half day rate for check out after 2 pm )

          • Older travelers

            A unique hotel in a supurb location.

            Steep walk to street from hotel.Limited parking, but these problems are shared by most hotels in this area .

            9.6

            We stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2011 and found the Hotel excellent, the staff were more than friendly and very helpful and would go out of their way to assist. We would stay again. Di and John Lovett, Leicestershire, uk

            The view from the balcony and the pool. The breakfast, fantastic setting for a champagne breakfast

            Slightly overpriced for what it is

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            We really enjoyed the location, however it would be perfect if the hotel had a couple of lifts!!! Spent far too much time waiting for lifts, only 1 in an hotel that is dependent on them. Bar was a bit un -atmospheric, however this didn't matter as its so close to town.

            Not sure whether w got the 'superior' double room we paid for, as they all looked the same!!!!

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Overall, it was very nice hotel with comfortable treatment by hotel staffs and great ocean view, and we really enjoyed our staying there, except 2 points below.

            1. Hot water of shower always spattered for outside of shower booth even we carefully closed grass door of the shower, and made the floor of toilette always getting wet. That was quite inconvenient when we use toilette every day. 2. Some balconies (even inside of rooms) can be seen from glass-walled approaches of elevators, and this nice architecture could not create isolated environment when we spent our relax time in my balcony.

          • Couple
            9.6

            The location is excellent, only a 5 minute walk from the main street in taormina with several lovely restaurants & bars nearby. Amazing views. Pool area is relaxing and the pool staff were really helpful.

            Quite expensive but this is probably due to such a central location. If you have a rental car it costs €10 per day to park.

          • Couple
            10.0

            The location was perfect. A large, clean, comfortable, quiet room with a private balcony. The hotel was only a short walk from the main street in town but far enough away to avoid the traffic and crowd - it felt secluded. The pool was very nice with comfortable accommodations and a friendly pool attendant & bar. The piano bar was a relaxing location at night. The breakfast was decent with a diverse assortment, though lacking fruit; coffee is served to the table.

            It was difficult to find because of all the 1-way streets. WiFi didn't work in the room, but was available in all public areas.
