I stayed in the Hotel Continental in May and it was just fantastic. It is located where you have a wonderful view of the city, the bay and the Mt. Etna. Taormina is a jewel and at the hotel you have the option to admire it! The terrace is amazing, you have a drink while enjoying an awesome sunset or...

The location was perfect - right off Corso Umberto. It was convenient to great shopping and restaurants. Breakfast was plentiful and excellent. A special thank you to Vanessa who always had a smile and fabulous service. I would also say that Daniella at the front desk provided superb customer service!! One morning we were leaving very early for an excursion....

This was a great hotel with a friendly staff. The rooms were updated, clean, fresh, and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice and replenished often. Although the the bar was small and served from the front desk staff it was adequate and convenient. The outside bar area was large and had a very nice view. There was a pizzeria just...

This was a very enjoyable place to stay, a block (up stairs) from the action of the main drag with great views of Etna and the sea from the terrace. The only minor complaint I have is with the wifi which was spotty except in the lounge. The room was clean and bathroom was ok except it was small with...

We've stayed at the Continental 3 times during our trips to Sicily. The hotel is located just steps away from the main street of this truly magical town, nestled between the hills and the ocean. Many of the rooms as well as the hotel's large terrace have perfect views of Mt Etna. The rooms have individual balconies, have recently been...

We have just finished a 5 night stay at the Continental and it was perfect. All the staff were kind, helpful and professional.

Delightful reception staff - Dario is a gem. Fabulous roof terrace with views over the town as far as Etna and the sea. Only reason I can't give it excellent is that it needs serious refurbishment. The rooms are fine but old fashioned. Bathrooms good but could be better. Pubic rooms from the 1960s. Of course the location and that...

The Hotel Continental is a great place to stay. I had a conference at another site in Taormina and needed somewhere nice but cheaper. The Continental completely fitted this. The hotel itself was built in the 60s but my room was immaculately renovated with stylish fittings and new bathroom. It was very very nice. The staff were fantastic. On arrival...
