The hotel has a spectacular view of Taormina, Giardino-Naxos and Etna but to get there by foot from the city center you have to walk a staircase for 20 min down and 40 min up so you have to be in good condition.

This place had the most amazing view I have seen in my life.Not only from our room but also from the breakfast room and even next to the pool you can just enjoy looking at the city, the see and the Etna at the same time.It was amazing!!!!! The staff was very friendly and helpful.Only negative point was the cleaning....

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights after a week of travelling around Italy. We picked up a hire car at the airport and drove to the hotel and what a crazy drive that was! The winding narrow roads leading up to the hotel was very nervewracking and i was on the edge of my seat, as for my...

I've spent 3 nights in this hotel on my Fly&Drive Trip to Sicily in July. I got there at 2 am, so I just wanted to get the key to my room and get some sleep. In the morning, when I went downstairs (there is an elevator too!) for breakfast I couldn't believe my eyes - the view is simply...

My wife and I were here on honeymoon last July 21-28. We loved staying here the staff were fantastic and not at all rude. Yes it is very high if walking but all you have to do is catch the orange bus you go up and down for less than €2 the locals on the bus actually enjoy seeing you...

We stayed at Sole Castello for a week (Neckermann’s package) from 2-9 August 2008. Honestly, I had numerous objections and worries before the trip to Taormina, as I had not found any good reviews on either Tripadvisor, or any other website. I had a small fear about the highway for example, which, according to the google maps , was going...

The rooms are extremely small with smelly toilet and small simple beds.And this for the price of 135E per night in May!!!!We were ready to leave the hotel instantly but after a conversation with a receptionist...

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Sole Castello in June 2006. The write up on the hotels website was fairl good. It stated its was only steps from the centre. When we arrived we realised it was actually 450 steps to the centre up/down a very steep hill, which in the baking hot sun isnt fun. You'd be...

The Sole Castello was an unplanned stop for us, and we were thankful to find something available. A couple nights later, we stayed at the Villa Greta in Taormina, a much nicer experience - staff and restaurant were quite nice, food was excellent at the restaurant in Villa Greta. But Sole Castello had nothing other than a nice view going...

This hotel has the rudest staff I ever came upon. We were at this hotel Aug. 27-29 and they gave away one of our pre-paid rooms, tried to charge one of our people for something they did not order and spoke to us like dirt. We took 22 rooms for 2 nights and you would think they would be more...
