I LOVED staying at Dolphin Guest House.

I was made to feel extremely welcome from the moment I arrived. Travelling solo, my room was small, yet I had a private bathroom along the hall, and was invited to use the kitchen, terraces and lounge if I chose. A lovely, homely environment that I enjoyed.

The establishment is located in a residential street extremely close to Porte Messina - an entrance to the main shopping/pedestrian route to some of the ancient sights. It was much nicer than staying in a purely commercial or tourist establishment, and I felt entirely safe moving around even at night. Additionally, one could access the nearby beaches via bus or cable car easily. A lovely additional service was the stack of free beach towels to use during one's stay (return expected, of course!).

I have been recommending Dolphin Guest House to my friends since I have returned from my visit and can't wait to go back!

(BTW: They have all sorts of different rooms, some with en suite and others completely private - bathroom/kitchen/terrace etc.)

Stayed: July 2016

Agoda, booking.com and Google all show not precise location of the guest house. Please find the uploaded map for more precise location and it will be useful if you arrive late in night and search in the dim street.

Very nice host and helpful. It is a very fid choice for budget travel with private room.

Clean & comfortable room and good WiFi - but with a tiny bed. But no complaints, as its a great value for money, in a convenient location and a very helpful host who gave great suggestions and was very helpful in providing detailed directions & shortcuts. The house, as the name suggests, is multiple occupancy with different amenities available at varying costs. House is in a quiet, safe street - definitely will consider staying again when I come back.

Having arrived late in Taormina with nowhere booked we were delighted to find this gem. The extremely helpful owner arrived within minutes, assisted us with parking, the sights and places of interest nearby. A beautiful town and a pleasant stay.

July 2013.

Taormina is beautiful place! Pricey, so its great to find a place like this!

Pros:
- very clean
- great location (near port of messina)
- good value
- lots of common space (large kitchen, lounge)
- washing machine !!!!!!
- free WIFI !!!!!!

Cons:
- mossies when we were there (summer). Although its a problem everywhere (just make sure you have some repellent or ask the owners for some)

Tips:
- the double has its own small balcony. But there is also a small shared balcony infront of the living room for the other guests.
- you can also get free WIFI sitting on the balcony from the neighbouring ashebee hotel. For some reason its not secured and it seems a little faster than the one available at the dolphins guest house.
- we checked out the private top floor suite which has a humungous terrace balcony with full sea views! Would recommend that if you had more money to spend.

Not sure if you will find a place with better value for money in Taormina than this place!
