Arrival at the Hotel went smoothly with our room (22) waiting for us. On entering the room we found it bright, clean and contemporary. As we unpacked we realised that there was very limited (and I mean LIMITED) storage space and no drawers in which to put clothes. We asked for some drawers but apparently there aren't any, so we asked for a different room and the Hotel Staff offered us an upgrade at a discounted price, which we accepted( Room 20) with a Seaview. Upgrading is a MUST. Some of the rooms are tiny, so pay attention when you book. Every area of the Hotel has stunning views along the coast and out to sea. Sunbeds are limited, so get up early to book your spot in the sun. Poolside area is quiet and relaxing. Infinity pool is small but lovely. Staff are polite, efficient and helpful. Good breakfast and although we didn't eat there in the evenings the menu looked fantastic. Drinks and food are expensive. The biggest disappointment for us was that EVERY NIGHT was a Jazz evening, ( from 9.00pm till 12.30am) ok if you like jazz, but painful if you don't. Trouble was, there was no escape anywhere in the Hotel from the deafening noise. There appeared to be an emphasis on style and design rather than on guest comfort and functionality.

This is one beautiful place! The location is absolutely perfect with great views from the room, while the hotel entrance is right on the main street. The hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous from the reception down to the rooms. The personnel is absolute top. The breakfast quality is amazing as well and the breakfast view is nothing less than spectacular. In the evening they have superb live jazz music and they serve great cocktails. We were even upgraded to a suite which was awesome. Honestly, I can hardly wait to be back !

Room tip: I'd say seaview it's a must !

It is undoubtedly the best hotel in Taormina. We've stayed at lot of fantastic hotels around the world, and the Metropole is right up alongside the very best. Indeed, there was something very special about the Metropole. It was was such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay with breathtaking views, helpful staff and excellent location.

It's all but easy to find the Metropole Hotel when you are driving a rental car and do not know the city of Taormina. Put "Via Roma" in your GPS, not the hotel address... It will save you about an hour driving through one way or dead end streets barely allowing for one car to pass at a time. But once you manage to get to the hotel, your holiday can start. Lxuruous and spacious rooms with stunning views, excellent breakfast, outstanding service. Located in the heart of the city, everything is walking distance. The hotel can be somewhat noisy, even at night, but then again, you are in the city! Visiting Taormina and staying at Metropole is the right cocktail mix for a good start of your Sicily Tour, like we did.
