    Historical Traveler Reviews Sirius Hotel Taormina

    Fabulous small hotel with great service and views

    from

    Stayed for 4 nights at Sirius Hotel and loved every minute of it. We had a large side room with a huge terracotta balcony with a view to die for. The desk staff warmed up to us as Americans and were extremely helpful with great restaurant recommendations, to making calls for us to book a tour to Etna, because our Italian was not that good. The pool is exquisite, clean, and a relaxing beautifule place to relax. The location of the Sirius was also ideal. Less than a 10 minute walk into the town, 2 minutes from the Cable car down to the beach, yet on a quiet street. The food was also excellent. The hotel, itself, is carved into the mountain side, with an elevator that goes to the different levels. Highly recommended. Just great.

    Lovely hotel;great location;teriffic views

    from

    Other reviews about the Sirius were helpful in making our choice & we weren't disappointed.We were lucky to get a large corner room with balcony & fabulous full sea views without paying extra thanks to our travel agent! Fridge in room is a real bonus-you can buy water & soft drinks cheaply nearby.Breakfast is above average for Europe but for a country which makes the best coffee in the world-how come hotels there produce coffee which is almost undrinkable?You have to choose your evening meal at breakfast & have 2 choices of starter & main course plus dessert.Pasta & fish are best choices.The quality & variety of Sicilian wine was one of our nicest surprises!Sirius has a nice wine list-all local and very good quality. If you like wine,this really is a country to try.Hotel has an elegant and peaceful atmosphere with antiques,old prints & a lovely bar.There's a small but perfect pool where you can get snacks & even better,no fighting over sunbeds! But be aware -pool is only open from 11am-6.00pm & is manned by a slightly grumpy member of staff who makes up for this by rustling up lovely fresh sandwiches on the spot.Ideal hotel for couples-not much for kids.Very close to town,sights & cable car to beach.Highly recommended.

    Breathtaking views

    from

    We wanted to stay on via Pirandello as it's near the Corso and the cable car to the beaches. Easy to find when you drive into Taormina. Hotel just down street 2 blocks. Very steep driveway, but parking onsite. Views are instantly gratifying and amazing. Hotel built on many levels rising up the hillside, but there are lifts. Dining room on upper reception level, down one to a gorgeous terrace with 180 degrees views of sea great for late evening drinks. Rooms on next two lower levels and pool on lowest also with amazing views all round. Beatifully landscaped and charming. Poolside snackbar serving drinks and light lunches. Our room had a very large sized patio with seaviews but there are rooms with full seaviews also. Breakfast buffet is quite large and good. There are many hotels in this price range, but this is the best value for the money.

    Nice hotel, shame about the room

    from

    A really lovely hotel with nice terraces, public areas and fantastic views. However the room we were given for our four night stay must have been the worst room in the hotel. Room itself was fine but while the hotel was surrounded by amazing views, the view from our room was of a mildewed brick wall about 6' away. Had to have the light on any time we were in the room and because no sun ever got to the room, it was very cold. This was a real shame because the hotel itself was very nice as were most of the staff, although the receptionist was particularly unhelpful when we requested a change of rooms. I would try it again but only with assurances that I could have a decent balcony and full sea view, which plenty of the rooms did have.

    Absolutely Wonderful

    from

    Visited this hotel last August and had a terrific time. The staff are really friendly and helpful and our room was just beautiful. It was large, very nicely furnished and decorated. One of the nicest we have ever stayed in. The pool and surrounds were absolutely spotless with terrific views. Our meals were always appetising and we were never hungry and there was always more than enough. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Taormina. Only thing I would say is the winding driveway down to the hotel entrance is very steep, might be a problem for anyone with walking difficulties.

    Nice location

    from

    A nice hotel located in a perfect location. The hotel itself is well kept and has 'character' with the wooden furnishings and cosy nature. It is located right on the hillside and, if you get sea views, has amazing views from the generously sized balcanoies for sunrise/set. The staff were adequately helpful once you had got past their slightly frosty demeanours. There is a car park and extra car park spaces, which you have to pay extra for, which is very helpful in Taormina. Finding the hotel was the most fun....!

    Top-class! Sirius is a real treat!

    from

    Amazing hotel and situated within a minute of the main bus station and close to the town centre, shops and restaurants.

    We went in November when the weather wasn't sundeck temperature but that didn't matter. The rooms were clean, large and nicely decorated (I couldn't believe its classified as a 3 star hotel when it was so much more). Also what made it even special was the view we had from our room - spectacular views of the coast and the staff were super accommodating. Even to the point of allowing us to change our booking without hassle.

    The breakfast choice was really something too. Lots to choose from (not just coffee and bread, but a really great selection of cereals, pastries, juices, cheese and hams, coffee etc etc).

    One of the bonus' of this hotel was its location - near the town, bus stop (with links to the train station), and cable lift to the beach. Taormina was really special and Sirius hotel was a real find. I totally recommend it to anyone.

    Stay here!

    from

    Stay here! 3 star hotel with 5 star views. We stayed here in July 04 and choice of hotel was a bit of a stab in the dark. We got lucky as this hotel is excellent. We look for a clean hotel with a good pool and close to bars/restaurants. Sirius has this and more. Perched high on the cliff face overlooking the stunning coastline, it is only a few minutes walk from the main shopping/eating street and a minute from the cable car down to the beach. However, you probably wont want to leave the pool - Deep, clean, diving boards, excellent sun loungers and an amazing view of sea from the high position on the hill side. Great personal service, efficient & reliable. An excellent restaurant with different food menu every night. We paid for a balcony with partial seaview. Wasn't really worth it as it was too small to sit out on and looked straight onto someone elses. Ask for full frontal seaview on floors 1 or 2! As we checked out some of the other hotels in the brochure it was clear we got the best value for money. From the moment you proceed through the entrance and are greated by a spectacular panaramic view of the coastline, you'll know you've made the right choice.

Well, I enjoyed it, at least; the guys looked pretty annoyed. I haven't been able to get the song "Volare" out of my head since! We continued our stroll after dinner and stopped for gelato. So good! It was another perfect ...

    And it was so much fun walking around the top of the volcano.
    And we caught the bus back down and on the way because it was super cloudy.
    Our bus was so close to crashing with another one.
    It was so freaky people were swearing out loud too.

    I really enjoyed climbing up a volcano.
    And yeah so that was our stay at this place it was very active. So I enjoyed it.

    ... with spectacular views.

    Although the theatre itself has been modernised for use with a blue stage and plastic chairs - not cool.

    We enjoyed our walk through Taormina's gardens.

    It had lovely, well maintained, lush gardens and many interesting buildings that looked like treehouse temples.

    We thought Taormina was high but we drove higher to another cute town called Castelmola.

    Messina, italy

    A travel blog entry by cassie.goehring on Jun 20, 2015

    Today our first stop was in Messina, Italy. This is a port that we visited last time we went on our Mediterranean cruise. We decided to do a little exploring on our own this time. We rented a little car ( as you do when you are in Italy). The streets are very narrow and roads aren't that great so it definitely was an experience! We decided to drive to a beach about an hour from the port. We had to drive around for quit some time to find a parking spot and then walked down to the beach in ...
