We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, we had the most gorgeous views from our balcony out over the ocean and mountains. Quick walk into the centre and the Greek Theatre, a bit more reasonably priced just hat little bit out of the centre. We found the staff to be very warm and helpful and would stay here again...

If you only visit one place in Sicily, it should definitely be Taormina. And if you want to make the most of the town and the surrounding areas without paying Taormina prices, then the Elios is the perfect place to stay. Arriving in Taormina by bus, we were delighted to find that this hotel was signposted from the bus station...

Good budget hotel. Very clean and helpful staff. Very close to bus station, greek theatre and cable car and many good restaurants. Easy to go to Isola Bella and Grotta Azzurra and it's a nice walk down to the beach. It's more practical to take the cable car back as there are many steps to climb. Breakfast was average. They...

I chose this hotel as I was relying on public transport, and day excusions that leave from the bus station only about 7 minutes walk. My room has had a recent bathroom renovation and looks very slick and modern, however this does not blend with the old furniture in the bedroom. I found the bed quite hard and had to...

With only 64% of reviews giving Hotel Elios the 'thumbs up' I was a little apprehensive. I shouldn't of been so worried. What a little gem in the centre of Taormina. My partner, who has 5 star tastes with a 3 star budget, had the Elios and 2 other B&Bs chosen after looking at many places in Taormina through tripadvisor....

front desk is very helpful, some of the rooms are quiter than others, we had a nice quite room with no view on the 3rd floor. My brother's single room walls are thin thus could hear noisy neighbors.

Hotel Elios is positioned just a few minutes walk from Taormina's cute city center, the local restaraunts and the Greek ampitheatre. The city and the atmosphere is amazing, but the Hotel Elios is average. In this case average is'nt necessarily a negative word, as you actually pay for what you get. Postive: - Amazing view from the terrace. - Very...

Dear Guest, Thanks a lot, for your review on Trip Advisor after your experience at the Hotel Elios.

Good location with excellent views from our sea view room. The room we had was very spacious even for four people & the staff were always very helpful. We had a tour of etna & airport transfer with Rosario, he was very helpful at the hotel and gave us a very memorable last day in Sicily.
