This hotel is situated at the top of Taormina in Sicily and the view is breath taking, the surrounding area has little cafe's and shops where you can browse around. Just 50 meters from the hotel are steps on the other side of the mountain which take you down to the center of town if you can make the hike... More

We've stayed at Hotel Sole Castello a number of times over the last few years, always at March. Located on a hilltop position in the historic city of Taormina, Hotel Sole Castello offers the best panoramic views of Mount Etna and the Mediterranean Sea from most of its rooms and from its outdoor pool. This hotel is conveniently located to... More

From the balcony of my room the best view up Taormina and the Etna volcano ever seen. The hotel is located on the hill top of the town near the ancient castle and the curch of Madonna Rocca. There you find a small terrace with a wonderful view up the Teatro Greco and the sea.

The staff is not only arrogant but aggressive and threatening. I would never stay here again for that reason alone. The overall condition of the hotel is that of a low-grade 2 star hotel in need of a serious renovation. Getting to and from the center of town is at best a nightmare (from the hotel you have to first... More

No carpets, doors opening and closing all night and morning, the staff starts cleaning at 7a.m., cigarette burns in the bed spread, virtually no hot water, surly staff morning, noon and night. Go elsewhere.

This hotel has an amazing view....However it is located in between Taormina city center and Castemola. I agree with everyone else the hotel management was HORRIBLE...very rude and made the stay unpleasnt. Also if you are going during the summer they only run the air condition from 2 pm to 4 am, and it doesn't work very well at all.... More

I have just returned from my 6 days stay at this hotel and I cannot decide what the first thing I should mention is: the ecstasy brought by the breathtaking panorama or the instant and continuous repulsion caused by the services provided by this hotel. The road to the hotel meant ascending on numerous hairpin turns on a narrow road... More

I chose this hotel from a website based on the stunning views it showed - when we were driving up steep multiple hairpin bends I realised why the view was so amazing and hoped it was worth it... We had a worrying start with an unfriendly hotel receptionist who tried to give us a room without the view of Etna... More

I would have given this hotel a better grade without this incident below with the hotel manager. And moreover, you should know that the hotel is in the top of the hill in Taormina - so every time you want to go the city center or anywhere in the neighbourhood, you have to climb down and up hundreds of stairs...
