A family run hotel, small but charming.The room was simple but adequate and very clean. The bathroom was large and immaculate. View of the sea but since a two star hotel, some construction and roads visible,nevertheless the room was beautifully sunny and opened to vistas of the sea. Breakfast was on a terrace and the usual juice, eggs,breads, jams, fruits, yoghurt, and coffees were offered. The family was extraordinarily helpful in directing us to Etna and indicating restaurants in town. Parking was available and well worth the 10 euros a day. Each time we had to use the car,Marcello retrieved it in haste. I would stay at Hotel Condor again especially since it is family run and well situated. We also enjoyed meeting other traveling guests at breakfast and sharing adventures.

Hotel Condor is a excellent hotel!! The hotel and the rooms are meticulously clean. The marble used in the steps, floor and through the hotel is beautiful. The view from our room and the terrace was outstanding. The hotel was a short walk to the city but far enough away to be peaceful. The breakfast was very good and on the terrace overlooking the view of the sea. The owners and staff were very helpful for any information that was required. We stayed in 2010 and now in 2013 and will return on our next trip to Taormina!!

We drove into Taormina to find Condor Hotel, worried about finding parking, the receptionist followed in her car to a small private lot for guests - 5 euros /day. The hotel is on a small narrow road and overlooks the sea and part of town. Walk everywhere after you arrive. Taormina and Condor were wonderful. Great restaurants nearby and the breakfast at Condor was beautifully presented on the terrace top overlooking the sea. Very quiet at night and comfortable. Squeaky clean and good amenities. Free internet access and very helpful staff for directions and maps of town. We loved Hotel Condor and very good value.

Excellent customer service. Staff were very helpful at all times. They provided information on everything - buses, tours, Greek theatre programme, transport options to the beaches etc -as good as any tourist information. Breakfast was good. Nice breakfast staff. Excellent communication with hotel before arrival with all our emails promptly answered. Super efficient. The price is normal for this resort - more than we usually pay for a holiday as we are budget travellers, but if you want to have a holiday in this resort you have to pay the higher prices. In comparison to the prices of other hotels in this resort we found this hotel to be one of the most reasonable. Basically if you want to holiday in Taormina you have to pay for it. Eating out was more or less the same as in the UK. Drinks pricey, deckchairs and umbrella on the beaches extortionate. Taormina is not a budget resort but it was well worth it. One of our best holidays.

The Condor was a very nice place to stay, a short walk to the main part of Taormina. The lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful, the room was nice, and breakfast was varied and extremely good. Its worth it to have the sea-view balcony. Recommend Tiramisu, a close restaurant on left just before the first archway as you walk through to town. Also strongly recommend Ristorante Anfora off Corso Umberto Salita Denti 5 and up the steps--really good fish and other local specialties. Expect a leisurely dinner or lunch there, because the kitchen is small--but good.

We thought the room was beautiful and light and we enjoyed the view very much. We only stayed in Taormina for 2 days and we loved it. The room was very quiet too and we were able to sleep with the balcony doors open at night which we couldn't do in our other hotels in Itlay due to noise. The hotel staff also were very kind in helping us work out how to get north to sorrento, and were very thorough in explanation of this, which we appreciated.

Fantastic terrace good service friendly helpful staff. good choice of breakfast. Go for a room with a sea view it is worth the extra 10 or so euros. Only downside but not a problem the water was not quite hot enough. If you go by bus and travel hand luggage walk to the hotel it is literally 800m up the hill will take you 10 mins to walk it we got a taxi and charged us 10 euros!. Well worth the visit if you are going to Taormina beautiful place

Hotel Condor is pretty well located, less than 10 minutes by foot from the main street. Teatro Greco is less than 20 minutes away. Rooms are clean, relatively small, bed is comfortable, bathroom is ok. Breakfast is good but does not stand out (served at the table - no buffet breakfast). It is taken outside weather-permitting, while enjoying a great sea view from Taormina heights. Service at reception desk is excellent. There is a parking lot 3 minutes away, a bit hard to handle with desk personnel often needing to accompany in order to open the gate and move cars around in order to free up the car but it is not too big of a hassle (thus, desk personnel keeps the car keys). On the minus side, rooms are very noisy, with dogs barking pretty much constantly, wind whirling through the door, noise from other rooms, etc. Sleeping without earplugs is hardly possible. If you chose a room with sea view, expect such view from a pretty narrow window. The view is largely spoiled by construction sites (May 2010). We regretted having paid the sea view surcharge.

This is a lovely hotel. However, an event occurred which nobody had any control over. Early in the morning there was a very heavy rainstorm and my daughter and I woke up to 4 inches of water on the floor of our room. The storm drains on the street had backed up and the water had no place to go but downhill into our room which was the lowest one in the hotel which is built on the hill like a terrace effect. We stayed in bed while the hotel staff opened the atrium door to let the water flow out like a river; then they mopped up the rest. It took 1 1/2 hours. Fortunately, we had not left our luggage,clothes, phones, and cameras on the floor - just our shoes got wet. We were very fortunate. My daughters Coach shoes were ruined; we didn't want to argue with the hotel manager as they were devastated from this mess, too. We left to see the sites for the day and when we returned the room was immaculate and warm with no sign of having been flooded. The manager refunded our money for that night. I felt that both nights should have been gratis, but I guess this inconvenience was part of the adventure of traveling! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay there again.

Nothing but positives for this hotel. My wife and I spent two nights in Taormina, and our choice of the Condor was perfect.A quiet location, yet close to the city center. The room was very comfortable and we were made to feel most welcome by the owners.....a nice touch in Sicily was the number of small, family run hotels that went the extra mile to make your stay pleasant. Particularly liked the breakfast on the dining veranda overlooking the sea each morning. Also, the upgrade to room with seaview balcony.

We had a spacious enough room with balcony and nice view over the bay (ignoring a nearby contruction area which luckily showed no activities). The whole staff was very friendly and helpfull with tipps and recommendations. Center and Greek Theatre were comfortably in walking distance. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. We liked the ones a bit hidden in the smaller lanes better, than the very touristic ones at the main road. In general Taormina to us had more the charme of Disney-romantic and not true Italian style.

This was our first visit to Taormina, indeed Sicily, and Hotel Condor provided a very pleasant home-base for four nights. Helpful, welcoming staff looked after us, always giving us a warm smile, good sense of humour and cheery greeting that makes a stay more special. Lovely people. We enjoyed breakfasts on the rooftop. Room fine in all ways.Perhaps one suggestion for improvement might be the inclusion of tea/coffee- making facilities, although no-where in Italy did we find this. Good location not far from main streets, and you could see Etna erupting (in the distance, I'm glad to say!) from just us the road! One thing we did not enjoy was the crazy driving- cars, trucks pedestrians and especially mopeds all pushing their way through the narrow streets and Autostrade - a wonder there are not more accidents. I know this is not Hotel Condor's fault, but thought it was worth mentioning if you are planning to drive. We had a lovely stay- thank you.

Had a very nice 2 days at the Condor.The staff could not be more helpful or friendly. They are delightful. Views are good but I suspect that there are better in Taormina.Our bathroom was a bit tired. Main problem was directions which were not terribly helpful which led to us driving down quite an important pedestrian only street in Taormina ! "Follow signs to centre of town" is not very helpful. Your maps are also a little rudimentary.

Our stay at the Condor was only for one night, but the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms, though not beautifully decorated by any means, were clean and the views of the ocean lovely. The breakfast area (indoor because it was rainy during our stay unfortunately)was very nice and the food adequate. The parking was a little bit of a walk, but not bad. We were within walking distance of the main shopping areas. The bathroom for our room was very cramped, but the one for our teenage sons was much less so. Again, the staff was very helpful and friendly. There is not lift, but that wasn't an issue for us.

Very helpful managers and employees. Room was comfortable and very clean. A little bit of a walk into the heart of Taormina, but not a serious drawback. I would stay there again.

The hotel was absolutely beautiful! the setting was wonderful and so close to the center of Taormina. The views were nice. the only negative about the place is the neighborhood dogs. around the block there is a dog that barks all night long and consequently gets all the other dogs in the neighborhood going. Around 5am a rooster chimes in. I cannot complain about the hotel or its setting one bit, but i'd like to neuter the owner of that dog!

Our experience at the Condor Taormina was excellent. Service was wonderful. The quality of the hotel for the price we paid was great. The staff was very helpful, and I would return to the Condor again. The only issue I had was the dogs in the neighborhood barking, which the hotel had no control over. The location of the hotel was perfect, and all Taormina shopping and resturants were a short walk away.

Warm friendly family run hotel, very helpful, polite and accomdating. Clean reasonably comfortable bedroom, but compact. plenty of cupboard space, Clean moderate en-suite. Pleasant roof terrace, though we could,nt see Etna the outlook was ok. Quite but narrow street (all Taormina is narrow streets) Good breakfast available with varied breads, crackers, ham (not so good for us veggies) cheese, jams etc. Overall pretty much as expected from previous feedback info. Extra cost of 'safe' parking is a niggle, more so for longer stays, but te welcoming style makes up for any other shortcomings. Taormina has some wonderful scenary if you feel like a little exercise, climp to the Saracens fort for some stunning night views or sunrises, keep climbing for the village perched on the next peak, to overlook the fort and bay, and back across to Etna. Very touristy, try out of season, good for 2/3 days.

The hotel is located 5 min walk from the town center and cable car. The staff is very friendly and gave us all the needed information when we arrived. It is recommended to use the private parking, althouhg it costs 10 EUR per night. Note that the shower and bathroom are very very small and the floor gets very wet (but it dries during the night). Overall it was a nice and convenient place to stay for 2 nights.

Okay, I spent much time looking up and comparing hotels through this site. I have been to Italy 4 times, and just returned, having stayed here at Hotel Condor. I will tell you this very important finding: Hotel Condor is the best hotel my wife and I stayed at in Italy! Marcello the host was very cordial, the rest of the staff was friendly and informative. The location was perfect, away from the crowds, and fun to walk anywhere. It was a healthy and short distance to the tram which takes you to street level where you can walk down the many steps to the beach. For the value, Hotel Condor is PERFECT, so don't waste any more time, and book a room right now. In fact the temperatures around this time of year are swimmingly perfect. Grab your girl, put on your walking shoes, and passagere your way along the beautiful town center.

A great place to stay at a great price. Breakfasts on this hotel's rooftop terrace overlooking the sea are some of our nicest memories from 10 days in Italy. Far enough from the town center to be very quiet but an easy walk to the cable car and Corso Umberto. Would stay again if we're ever lucky enough to get back to Taormina.

The hotel was nice with terrace with a beautiful view in which breakfast was served. The room itself was quite small, the bathroom very small. The main concern about my stay was the airconditioning. In the middle of both nights of my stay the A/C went off and the room became a sweltering inferno and I had trouble sleeping. During the later morning the first night the A/C wen back on. The next day I had had enough and asked an employee to take a look at it and he had to wiggle the cords to the A/C to get it to work again. Other than that my stay was good. The location is great, very close to the main drag "Corso Umberto I". Another thing, they tack on 10 Euros for parking per night.

very nice area of town, despite the building works/noisy dogs in the mornings. very friendly staff always willing to help. some spoke alot of english others less, but always enough to get by as with most places in taormina. the breakfast was just right for us (rolls, jam, coffee, croissants etc) great location for etna market with good affordable food and wine. the bathrooms were very clean and with good showers. our room had a balcony that looked over the valley/sea, which i think several others had too. the lift is very slow, but we managed walking up the stairs fine despite being on the lowest floor. local restaurants were all to our liking, tiramisu was very nice and not too touristy, and for very good value and tasty pizzas the on near the arch (opposite Parisi, the prada selling shop) was perfect, but we forgot the name! also recommend the local beach that can be walked to or reached by cable car that has lots of good fish to snorkle with

Condor is a great price for Taormina. The breakfast was wonderful on the terrace with a great view. Also great view from our balcony over part of Taormina. Staff quite helpful. The place is 5 minute walk to the Corso Umberto but a long walk uphill from where the bus lets you off. So for anyone not in shape, take a taxi to the hotel from the bus dropoff. Take the bus from the train station however rather than the 25 euro cab fare. Buses run every half hour or so. Loved the Condor for the price. They do have internet access at the hotel and were nice enough to give us breakfast earlier than usual so we could be the early bus for the train.

What a great deal - a charming hotel, good location, and a terrific staff. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the sea for the most reasonable price. The staff made all arrangements for our trip up Mt. Etna, and took care of our car (we were a bit too frazzled by the traffic to park it ourselves.) I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel room was large,clean and spacious. The breakfast was good, the staffs were all polite and helpful. There is dog barking at night but... Although we had some trouble finding the hotel and reaching it on foot with lugguages in tow, we ended up staying one more day. We will definitely return should we be in Taormina again. Every one in the hotel was friendly and nice.

This is a relatively inexpensive hotel in an expensive place. Accordingly, the level of services is lower than at a different location at this price. In general I was satisfied with everything except two things: 1. the breakfast is just enough to start the day. They should offer one or two more pieces of bread, then it will be OK. 2. It rained twice during our stay and there was a periodic noise during the night. There must be something that, when fills up by rain, gets instable and poors out the water.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. It appeared to be 2 generations of a family. We were one of two guests (off season) and we could hear the family next door. Also, the town, and the next door neighbor have several dogs and they barked day and night. There was nothing the hotel could do about this. The breakfast room and patio have a wonderful vista and the food was fine. When asked about restaurants, the staff had several suggestions, but were unaware that every restaurant they suggested, as well as all the others we found were closed on Wednesday evening.

Very helpful and charming desk clerk. She gave us excellent restaurant recommendations, checked the railway timetables for us, and made reservations for the tour to Agrigento. Best estaurant was Tiramisu, but others were very good too. We met a young English couple,and a couple of Australian ladies, all enjoyed sharing their travel experiences and plans. . The breakfast room on the roof was great, with a superb view over the bay and the town(and the dogs next door!)

This hotel is, as everyone has said, very nice, and the staff was friendly. However, considering parking is charged at an extra €10/day, this meant we ended up paying €96 for a double room + unguarded parking space, which I couldn't help feeling was rather a lot for what it was. Our room looked out over a construction site and wasn't particularly spacious. The bathroom was fine, although the shower is minute! The breakfast was very nice, and is provided on the rooftop terrace which has splendid views. If it wasn't for the extra charge for the parking, I would have been very pleased with this hotel but, for us, that made it just that bit too expensive for what is was (especially considering we chose the hotel because it had a parking, not knowing you had to pay extra for it).

Everyone of the people at Condor were extremely helpful and everything worked! So glad because I was trying to decide between booking Condor and Astoria and when I saw the location of Astoria (across from the bus station) and was delighted that Condor was in a SUPERB location. Customer service was exceptional.
